    Default Left handed toddler scissors

    If you have a lefty, have you found good scissors suitable for a 2.5-3 yr old?

    This might not help, but just in case...

    I'm a lefty and I use scissors right handed. I put it down to the fact that I was surrounded by righties and picked up a bunch of skills by learning visually, but who knows if that's true. I bat right handed, too.

    So right handed scissors might still be ok.

    I'm a lefty.
    I can't use scissors with my right hand and have not found any lefty scissors.
    It hurts if I'm using them heaps but a little bit is fine.

    Sorry no help.

    Check out the website modern teaching aids. I am certain there are some left hand scissors there.

    Thanks I was looking on there today put some in the cart and they want over $12 to ship a $4 pair of scissors.

    Not needing so much where to buy but which ones are good.

    I just realised that I use scissors right handed too...
    Discard my above comment about crayola scissors.

    Scotch have some good ones for litte lefties. My 6 year old uses them. Can buy them I stationery section at Coles- they say something like 'suitable for left and right handed'.

    A school supplies store should have them or often newsagencies/office supplies who do back to school orders. The basic small blunt end scissors are typically red for right and green for left.

    If you can't find any, or that sort still seem a bit big, micador (from spotlight) do an excellent toddler scissor (right handed though) with a plastic spring that returns them to open and blades on an angle that make it almost impossible to cut skin.
