RIZE has partnered with Little You so that kids can turn their wildest imaginations into functional 3D anime toys made using RIZE’s technology and materials.
A Toronto-based personalized toy design platform dedicated to fostering innovation, Little You lets kids make unique custom anime figures that can be 3D printed and delivered to their door. Until now figures were available only in 3D color sandstone, a fragile material that requires careful handling.
The agreement with RIZE enables Little You to offer users an option of 3D printing their creations in RIZE’s full-color RIZIUM composites—materials that are recyclable, environmentally-friendly and tough enough for hours of rugged play, the company says.
With RIZE’s materials, Little You-designed custom figures can move off the shelf and into the hands of the creator. Kids can carry their creations anywhere—toss them in their backpacks, carry them in their pockets, share them with friends or dance with them in the rain.
The agreement enables toys that are both full color and durable, and allows Little You to more efficiently scale its operations backed by RIZE’s growing ecosystem.
“With RIZE, Little You sets our users’ imagination free to make amazing full-color custom toys with the click of a mouse—and gives us another way to reinforce our brand,” says Christina Guo, founder of Little You. “Together we’re taking our users’ experience to the next level.”
“Little You shows how innovative toy companies are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible,” says Andy Kalambi, CEO of RIZE. “We’re delighted that the XRIZE full-color 3D printing technology can help Little You unleash the creativity in children of all ages.”
