Product Description:

It is a pencil grip, but it doesn't look quite like the others. This ergonomically designed one is made of soft rubber and comes in a variety of colors. The top of the grip fans out like the hood of a cobra and an arrow down the middle of the top lets you know which way to place the pencil. When fingers are placed correctly on either side of the grip, pencil control is better and fingers don't become as tired. This grip has been tested by occupational therapists and can be used for teaching proper grasp and pencil grip and improve handwriting. It can be used with both left and right-handed writers and is latex free. - Donna

Category Description for Pencil Grips:

When you hear "pencil grip," you probably think of those hard plastic, prism-shaped gadgets. That's exactly what this is NOT. We've selected this particular grip because of its many beneficial features. First of all, it's flexible, allowing it to fit over any size pencil, pen or craft knife. It's soft and rubbery instead of unyielding plastic. Molded especially to fit fingers comfortably, there is only one correct way to hold it. Useable for either right- or left-handed kids, sides are marked with "R" and "L" to ensure kids hold it correctly. ~ Stephanie

Having a little difficulty teaching proper grip on holding a pencil and this looks like it could help.

Had this before. Totally helps with proper grip so the hand doesn't get too tired. Buying an extra to throw in my purse.

This is the most amazing pencil grip ever! Bought one to try with 4-yr-old who does not have a good pincher grip. Had tried several other grips with minimal success. This instantly put his fingers in the correct position and he is blowing me away with how well he is righting and drawing now. I am also impressed with the fact that it does not have to be changed for right or left handers. My high school age daughter (a lefty) liked it so much she asked for one!

My 5 year old has a fist grip & needs some help.

These are soft and very easy to use. Finger placement is difficult and the shield on this grip helps hold fingers that tend to want to slide in proper "pinch" position.

Just awkward
The finger position is just not right. I was hoping this would help correct my lefty's pencil grip, but everyone who I had try it (kids and adults) found it awkward. The finger position just doesn't match how one naturally holds a pencil. Maybe these work for kids who have no semblance of a correct grip, but for ones just fine tuning, this is an awful grip.

These work!
I used these to help my boys learn to hold their pencil and they are very helpful! I'd buy again.

Not for us!
I ordered this pencil grip for my kindergarten daughter who was having trouble holding a pencil correctly. She hated the way it felt and it made her pencil grip worse than it had previously been. There are much better grips than this.
