Skylanders Imaginators is a marvelous new creator app that is designed for children, and is designed to make it possible for children to 3D-print their very own toys.

Developed as part of a collaboration between Activision and the famous 3D-printing technology company Shapeways, this child-focused creator app makes it possible for players to go about creating their very own hero figure that they can then get printed. Each 3D-printed toy comes with a special stand as well as a protective plastic casing.

While a lot of people complain that modern technology is going to make children disconnected from the joy of physical play, the Skylanders Imaginators app goes to show that the latest app technology can be used to actually enhance children's physical creativity and enjoyment.
