Where can I get special grips for pencils or pens that make them easier for children. They would fit over a normal pencil or pen. ALSO Are there any good prices pens or pencils that are already shaped to make it easier for them to grip.


Any web links to these items are very much welcome. or any names of the item too.

Many thanks

Stabilo make a handwriting pen that has the triangular grip built in, it comes in pink and blue and for both left & right handed children. I'm sure I've seen them in WH Smith before.

the Stabilo ones are currently half price in blue supermarket and orange one! But do check that buying the correct grip, whether right or left. Am assuming it makes a difference.

Thanks you everyone. I will look at the Stabilo pens.

The pens above from Baker Ross they make the pencil triangle shape. I know that you can get pencils that are triangle. Are they good for grip to make writing easier too?


Also I have seen these on ebay.. Are these any good? One is foam, another is rubber ribbed & the other makes the pencil into a triangle.....

Thanks for your advice... :0)
