These safety scissors have rounded ends, but proper sharpened blades for cutting paper and thin material, so adult supervision is needed.
Maped Visio left handed ball pen (code 730) This pen features a hooked neck and off-centre tip which allows left handers to see what they are writing clearly and as the fingers are further away from the tip there is less chance of smudging. The pen has a soft-touch triangular grip area with the finger and thumb indentations positioned to encourage a correct left handed writing grip.
Ruler 30cm, clear perspex (code 702) Soft plastic flexible ruler scaled in Centimetres / Millimetres only. 30cm length. All our left-handed rulers are scaled from right to left making it easy to draw lines of the correct length with the left hand, without obscuring the scale while you do it.
HandiWriter writing aid (code 604) This simple device is made up of a large loop made of soft elastic (like a hair scrunchy) that goes over the wrist, a small loop that goes around the pencil or pen and a cord with a charm on the end that is held in the palm of the hand. These work together to encourage a perfect grip and writing style without even trying!
