It seems like every popular TV series, movie or character has a slew of toys associated with it — and a barrage of kids begging for them. Adults aren’t immune to this phenomenon either, as evidenced by Baby Yoda fever. However, buying every collectible from your favorite franchise can do a number on your wallet, so going the DIY route may satisfy your cravings.

If your child’s constant desire for new toys and gadgets is draining your bank account, you might want to try the Toybox 3D printer instead. Available now for $350, this deluxe printer bundle is easy to use. It can generate tons of figures from an extensive catalog of themes, including renowned properties like Cartoon Network, DC Comics, Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera, Warner Bros. and more.

As seen on Shark Tank, this 3D printer is both a kid's and an adult’s dream. First, this little gadget is a toy in itself, as watching it crank out cool new figurines can be pretty fascinating, especially if your children are into STEM. Second, the options are virtually limitless (more on that later). Even if your little ones need to switch up what they play with, they won’t have to venture beyond this device to discover something fun.

To use the Toybox, simply download the companion app and scroll through the wide library of options, including characters from the aforementioned animated channels. For example, you could brighten up the holiday season with figurines from Elf and Polar Express. There's something for parents, too. The catalog includes items from Friends and Seinfeld. And if you somehow run out of figures to produce, you can upload custom blueprints to bring your own ideas to life. Toybox Labs suggests the bundle comes with enough non-toxic, biodegradable printer food for 100 to 300 toys in a range of eight colors.

Whether you have kids or you’re still a child at heart, the Toybox 3D printer might literally be the gift that keeps on giving. The Deluxe Bundle usually retails for $469, but you can get it for 25 percent off, dropping the price down to $350.
