I am a righty parenting two lefties and one righty.
If you are parenting a lefty, you already know that scissors can be… tricky. Lefty scissors were so tricky for my oldest son that he opted to learn to cut righty. And now my 4-year-old is running into the same issues. He tries to cut with lefty scissors and it feels awkward, so he switches to a righty and that feels awkward, too!
I recently learned about a pair of scissors that lefties and righties can use. Not only are these scissors universal, but they only cut paper.
No unexpected haircuts.
No mysterious slices in fabric (like the curtains in our playroom, for example).
And that’s where Fundanoodle scissors come into play.
Keep Lefties and Righties Happy with Fundanoodle Scissors
*Disclosure: I received Fundanoodle scissors at no cost in exchange for a post. I was not compensated for my time, nor was I required to write a positive review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I only share products that I would use with my own family and those that I believe other families will enjoy.
What did the kids think of Fundanoodle scissors?
Here is a video of my 4-year-old lefty using Fundanoodle scissors for the very first time (as a righty):
And here is a video of my lefty 8-year-old using them for the first time (as a righty):
And my oldest (who cuts using both hands) using the scissors as a lefty:
Oh, and my righty enjoyed them too!
