As a 4-year-old, my brother took special sewing scissors known as Pinking Shears (think zigzag) to my beautiful hair - The result was a shock to my mom who quickly remedied the situation with a very very short Pixie cut on my once adorable head of hair! I was determined that this scenario would never happen to my children. Handing sharp scissors over to your child is a terrifying thought, and teaching them how to properly hold a pencil for writing is a daunting task, so I was thrilled to get a chance to review The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors and The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit from The Pencil Grip, Inc.

What is The Pencil Grip 3-Step Training Kit and Ultra Safe Safety Scissors?


I received a pair of the Ultra Safe Safety Scissors and a 3-Step Pencil Grip Training Kit.


The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors are uniquely designed to provide a safe cutting environment for those learning how to cut while still allowing the scissors to be effective in actually cutting. The design provides a plastic shield that prevents mishaps. The scissors are blunt tips to prevent poking injuries. To use them, the child must line up the paper with the edge of the plastic shield.

The Pencil Grip 3-Step Training Kit came with three pencil grips. 

1 - The Crossover Grip (Wings prevent fingers from crossing over)
2 - The Pinch Grip (Balances structure with a bit of freedom)
3 - The Pencil Grip (Provides comfort and control and great for extended use)

These 3 Steps are designed to achieve a lifetime of comfort and control beginning with The Crossover Grip for training, transitioning to The Pinch Grip and eventually graduating to The Pencil Grip.



How Did We Use It?

I was familiar with pencil grips and how helpful they are in helping children learn to hold pencils correctly. I even knew about The Pencil Grip, Inc. company. But, the safety scissors were completely new to me. I was anxious to give them a try.







I was happy to also receive a set of pencil grips that gradually move the child up from the early writer to more advanced. What astonished me was that I had never noticed before that my daughter actually holds a pencil incorrectly when she writes. Do you see the Red, Incorrect section below? I discovered that she holds her pencil much like the second picture on the first line under the red, incorrect examples. So, I set out to train her fingers to get comfortable with holding a pencil correctly.

We began with the beginner grip. I had her start by simply printing some letters and then used the grip while we did our usual school work:





She advanced to the next level of pencil grip.



I took the first opportunity to allow my child to try out the scissors for cutting. I also was astonished to discover that somehow I never noticed that my daughter holds her pencil wrong. So, I was happy to show her the pencil grips for training her pencil hold.

What Did We Think?

These really are the safest scissors I have ever seen. I can't imagine any child being able to harm him or herself with these safety scissors. The pencil grips are so comfortable to use. The only obstacle we experienced was that when I took the pencil grips off of the pens they came on to put them onto pencils, I put them on upsidedown thinking that the R was to placed on the right and the L on the left. Once we realized that the R meant that is where your left thumb is to be placed, and the L is where the left thumb is to be placed for left handers, things went well. I am amazed at how easy it is to place your fingers into the grip, rest it on the middle finger, and hold the pencil with ease. They feel so comfortable! I wish I had one when I was learning to write.
