Moms Of Lefty's

My 6yo DD is a lefty. She has a horrible time cutting, that was the only thing she didn't get a M in KDG. I can't find left handed scissors anywhere. Do they still make them? Anyone know where to find them?

yes they do make left handed scissors. although they are super hard to find. target did have some that were universal i believe. my DH and i are both leftys and one of our three is a lefty also. i always had such a hard time cutting and getting blisters on my hand when i was little so i went on the search for those scissors when i discovered my son was a also had an either or pair of little kids scissors and adult ones too. the lefty ones are harder to find and you would most likely have to go to an office store and pay a fine price for them. i find that my son does just fine with the universal ones! good luck!

We had universal ones that we bought for AJ at WM...I believe they were the 'Fiskar' ones that ds's school requires.

I am not a mom of a lefty, as far as I know, but I am left-handed... and yes, they still make those scissors... I saw some at Wal*mart last weekend.

I can't cut with left handed scissors to save my life though, so I haven't used them since I was forced to do so in Kindergarten (nearly 25 years ago).

Re: Moms Of Lefty's

im a lefty... if im faced with using right handed scissors i either cut them with my right hand or else turn them upside down and cut all funky with them. try looking in the craft section at walmart. they are almost certain to have some left handed scissors in there... or fiskars are great scissors for both hands
