They are brightly coloured and Magic! The perfect scissors for children to use when learning to cut! Even if you have already tried cutting and it didn’t quite work out, you can be reassured that these scissors are ideal scissors for children who are starting out. The Happy Handwriter’s Magic Scissors® work like magic in assisting early cutters to master the cutting process. This makes them the perfect scissors for children. Cutting is one of the most critical pre-handwriting fine motor activities we have on account of its ability to develop the handwriting muscles. Were you actually looking for scissors for lefties?

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.
The Happy Handwriter’s design patented Magic Scissors for children, 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.

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.
