These scissors are a redesign of an old product that hasn't changed in decades. Safety scissors are so important when children are first learning how to cut. These scissors have oblong finger holes to be comfortable and bring more control over the object to be cut. When the blades are fully closed there is little metal exposed at the tip and they have made the tip blunt to limit any accidental injury. The metal is coated with a hard plastic that should endure any child play. The blades are sharp enough to cut paper and cut right to the end of the blade. Compact for easy storage they will make a good addition to any classroom or home. Always have adult supervision when in use.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
