The Pencil Grip Review & Giveaway #hsreviews #pencilgrip #safetyscissors #preschoolsupplies

The Pencil Grip, Inc.
I love to watch little kids use scissors. It is always so cute the way they open their mouth when they open the scissors. We have a new pair of The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors and The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit from The Pencil Grip, Inc
The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors work just like any pair of scissors and are just as easy to use. The only difference is the blade has a fixed safety shield that remains in place over the blades even while the scissors are being used. The blade on the finger side of the scissors are connected to the safety shield. The blade connected to the thumb side moves up and down inside the safety shield. The piece of paper slides in between the fixed blade and the safety shield. There is a training lever that will automatically open the scissors after they have been squeezed closed. It can also be closed so that the scissors work like normal. These scissors are recommended for children ages 3 and up and would be great for kids preschool supplies.
The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit
The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit comes with 3 different grips that can be used on regular pencils and pens. They make holding them correctly easy and comfortable for children and adults. Both left-handed and right-handed people can use the grips correctly.
  • Step 1 is called the Crossover Grip. It is shaped like a "super hero cape" over the fingers. It is for training and provides structure and reinforcement for proper finger positioning. 
  • Step 2 is the Pinch Grip. This one has partial "wings" to allow transitioning to freedom but still has structure. By removing the "super hero wings" it allows the user to see their fingers to visually see how to hold the pencil or pen. 
  • Step 3 is the original Pencil Grip. It is refered to as the Graduation because it is the last one and can be used as long as the user needs to. This step provides a lifetime of comfort and control. 
The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors
Obviously, my kids are a little old for safety scissors, so we used them with my friend's little girl. She just turned 3 so she hasn't had much experience using scissors. Of course, she tried to use two hands at first but once we got them placed in her hand correctly it didn't take her long to figure out how they should work. We did have to help her get the paper in between the blade and the safety shield, but she could cut it. 
My kids always liked to cut and make crafts. Once they were a little older I would let them use regular scissors because regular safety scissors were not very sharp and my kids would get frustrated when they used them. We didn't have that problem with these scissors they're sharp, but there is no way a child could cut themselves with them.
We tried the pencil grip with her also, but I don't think she is quite ready to hold a pencil correctly. She would rather play with them than use them. We will keep trying to get her to use them so she can develop a good grasp when she writes.
