Completely. The 3Doodler Start Pen and Eco-Plastics are specially designed to be completely safe for kids ages 6 years and above. There are no hot parts on the pen and our Eco-Plastic is non-toxic, BPA-free, and completely biodegradable in your household compost. It typically takes about 45 days for the plastic to break down, depending on various environmental factors.
Please note that the 3Doodler Start may become clogged if you reinsert a used strand with a chewed up end, or try to put extruded plastic back into the pen. 1) Begin by charging your 3Doodler Start, to ensure the motor is able to run at full power. This will take 45 minutes to 2 hours. Do not use the 3Doodler Start while charging. 2) Now that your pen is fully charged, try reversing the plastic by double clicking on the main button. 3) Please try reversing the pen while gently knocking the pen (with the Feed Port facing down)…
The 3Doodler Start takes approximately 1 minute to warm up. When you first turn the 3Doodler Start on, the indicator light will be red. Once the pen is ready to use, the indicator light will turn green. If the light has been red for some time, the 3Doodler Start pen may have gone into idle mode. Turning the pen off and then on again will restart the warming up process.
