Comfortable-to-use recycled scissors for children. Very safe, made by an experienced scissors producer, with a blunt tip and restricted opening angle. Suitable for left- or right-handed children.

Curvy handle encourages fingers are properly positioned. Big loops are comfortable to use.

Blade will cut paper, foam, or felt, but will not accidentally cut fingers :-)

We don't love that these are made in China (22,000km away) or that their packaging includes single-use plastic. They're the best we've been able to find and better than you having to choose between no scissors, and virgin-plastic made-in-China scissors. And we like to encourage big producers like this when they add a recycled product.

What it contains: 1 scissors, 13.5 cm long (blade length 4.5cm), 6.5cm wide. Blades open just 15° for safely.
