Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scissors I love the new Ergo-Westcott ergo Jr. 5" kids scissors. My niece will be entering kindergarten this fall....I teach kindergarten and I thought this was a perfect way to see how students may use these scissors. So, we sat down one day to cut....these scissor made it easier for her to cut...she did not turn her wrist like most kindergarten students....she loved cutting with the scissors and wanted to cut some more. I tried using the scissors also and I found them easy to use. The design is a must for beginning scissors users.

Q & A

Although they will work for left handed children, could this cause a problem? When I first tried them, as a teacher and a "lefty" , I have to admit I was at first confused. 

Asked by: Lefty sped teacher
We would recommend use of the 16710 or 16711 Ergo Jr lefty scissors for left handed users.
