MakerBot introduces new Sesame Street characters.
More characters from the Sesame Street gang are now available for purchase and printing from MakerBot stores and online.
Cookie Monster, Grover and Frazzle will join the existing popular line of Sesame Street models ready to print in the MakerBot Digital Store with prices starting at just $1.99.
Arriving just in time for Halloween, these three Sesame Street monsters can be accessorised with 3D printable Halloween-themed accessories, including Cookie Monster's favourite treats, cookies; Grover's "Super Grover" costume, complete with helmet and cape; and Frazzle's jack-o-lantern carved to resemble his face.
These models can be 3D printed exclusively on MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers and are the first licensed content offered by MakerBot to be protected by secure streaming functionality, allowing users to purchase and print models without hosting files locally.
Fans without their own 3D printer can purchase their characters in MakerBot retail stores in Boston, New York and Greenwich, Connecticut. Prices for completed 3D printed models at the MakerBot stores will vary depending on the size of the 3D print.
"Sesame Street was our first licensed content partner on the MakerBot Digital Store, and today they are our first licensed content partner to take advantage of a new secure streaming option we have recently implemented for the MakerBot Digital Store," noted Jenny Lawton, acting CEO of MakerBot. "This new functionality within the MakerBot Digital Store has been a request of content partners and allows licensed content and intellectual property to be brought to life in a brand-new 3D printed way."
Additional 3D printable characters from Sesame Street for the MakerBot Digital Store will be available soon.
