The Happy Handwriter’s Magic Scissors work like magic in assisting early cutters to master the cutting process. Cutting is one of the most critical pre-handwriting activities we have on account of its ability to develop the handwriting muscles.   Early cutters often struggle to get going as they carefully position the page for cutting, only to lose it as they close the scissors completely with each cutting stroke. This is on account of a lack of graded control over the grasp-release cutting motion. As a result they need to repeatedly re-position the paper and never really get going. This causes much frustration and the mastery of the cutting process becomes a difficult and unpleasant experience.   These children need to perfect cutting scissors.

The Happy Handwriter’s specially designed and patented Magic Scissors®, hold the tips of the blades open very slightly. This holds the piece of paper in place, even if the child closes the handles completely. This facilitates a smooth entry into the cutting process and promotes mastery of a successful, controlled cutting action and many hours of muscle development.

The Happy Handwriter’s Left-Handed Magic Scissors® are sold in packs of 6.  Single pairs are also available.

I am an occupational therapist working in a school for learners with specific learning disabilities. I wish more parents and teachers understood how important “The right way the first time!” is. There is limited time to teach handwriting at school from Grade 1.

In particular, I love the Magic-Scissors. I see many children who have learnt to cut using an incorrect movement pattern when they arrive at our school in Grade 1.  Cutting is an excellent activity to prepare children for handwriting if it is done correctly!

I have been using The Happy Handwriter’s Magic Scissors for several years in my work with children.  This clever design is perfect for young children who are still developing their cutting skills.  The tips of these scissor blades never completely close which enables easier re-opening of the blades and thus facilitates the grasp-release action required for smooth cutting.  These scissors are of excellent quality and have proven to be a very useful tool for children to master their cutting skills with minimal frustration.
