Table Top Scissors for One Handed Use


These table top scissors are great for kids who want to use scissors but have a difficult time holding both the paper and the scissors at the same time, and in a coordinated manner. The kids can hold the paper up in place at the scissors, and just push down on the lever to make them cut. A great tool which can help them be independent with a difficult fine motor task.
