Talking Tom, by Outfit7, is a super-popular simulated cat that’s reached two billion downloads this Fall, 2014, and had 14 apps launched within four years. You can raise Tom from a kitten into a fully grown and opinionated cat.
Outfit7 and Toyze have signed an agreement to make 3D replicas of Tom possible. You will be able to use the upcoming Toyze app to turn your favorite Talking Tom and Friends into 3D models and share them with your friends online. You’ll be able to pick out features for your model like eye-color, hairstyle, clothing, and accessories. Tom even comes in eight different poses and 25 colors. The toys can be printed in sizes between one and eight inches tall.
Currently the Toyze site says the price of the models will depend on the size. Models that are around 2-2.5 inch are going for $50.
The Toyze app is available for free on the app store, so you can print up your favorite Talking Tom models for the holidays.
