Helping kids get a grip!
Say hello to the Gator Grabber Tweezers, specially designed to help kids as young as 2 strengthen fine motor skills, build hand-eye coordination, and most of all. .. have fun!
The Gator Grabbers are perfectly sized for little hands and great for developing the pincer grasp that’s so important in enabling children to pick up small objects in a controlled way, using their thumb and index finger. Kids love playing with this set of 12 tweezers, made to look like Gators that they can interact with, pretend to feed, and enjoy.

Big development for little muscles.
The Gator Grabbers Tweezers are contoured to prompt children to use a tripod grasp, similar to how they hold a pencil. When kids use the Gator Grabbers to gobble up small objects, they are learning how to control their hand muscles and how much pressure is needed to grab an object with enough force to hold it securely in the gator’s jaws.
Playing with the Gator Grabbers helps strengthen the muscles in hands needed for manual skills and precision. It also helps work on grasp and release so children are able to control when they release something, like handing money to a cashier or taking and replacing a crayon from the box.
Perfect for special needs.
Gator Grabbers are ideal for children who might need more assistance in learning how to position their hands and more practice with pincer grasp so they can gain control of daily living skills. Others may be hypersensitive to textures and prefer to participate without coming in direct skin contact with objects. Gator Grabbers allow them to participate in tactile play using the tweezers to hold and move objects. Try these fun activities:
● Place a pile of small objects (math counters, buttons, cotton balls) in the middle of the table. Count to 3 and have children race to pick up as many objects as they can within a set amount of time using the Gator Grabbers.
● Provide a pile of small objects that are different sizes so children have to control the pressure they use to squeeze the Gator Grabbers and pick up the objects.
Your Gator Grabber Tweezers set comes with 12 tweezers and a handy bucket to hold them all. Grab yours today!

They came in lots of fun colors and are strong and sturdy.
They are easy for little hands to grip, but sometimes hard to pinch together.
We have found so many uses for these. We have played with playdough, picked up things in the garden, played with dried beans in a sensory box, one of the kids even brought be a dead bug :(
Because there are quite a few tweezers in the container, if we end up making them dirty with mud or yukkies we just throw them away! I good addition to our collection of sensory type toys.
