the best grips,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Pencil Grip Crossover Grip Ergonomic Writing Aid, 6 Count Metallic Colors (TPG-17706) (Office Product)
We first used these when our daughter's preschool teacher gave her one to help correct her grip. She has had issues with griping pencils with her entire fist which makes her handwriting messy and tiring. These help so much! They also seem to work as a 'trainer', meaning she will use one while writing for several minutes then take it off and continue to hold the pencil correctly. The first one we had didn't last long when the dogs got at it. They are soft and colorful which seems to make them yummy looking to pets. After the first one was chewed up we went to the store to try and replace it only to find every other type of grip except this one. We bought several others which didn't help at all before buying these here. The only other sites we could find them on were school supply shops that only sold packs of a dozen or more, charged more than amazon (on a price-per-each comparison), and wanted nearly the same cost as the grips in shipping. I was so happy to find these here with free shipping. Having these grips has allowed me, as a now homeschooling parent, to use less expensive pencils rather than continue to purchase the triangular shaped pencils we were buying at $3 per 8-pack. At first I was disappointed that they weren't sold individually but now I like having all six; there are more if one gets lost, more for siblings to use, a variety of colors, and enough to put on several sharpened pencils to have on hand to avoid removing the grip to sharpen the pencil in the middle of a lesson.
