Easter Gift Guide - Pencil Grip Review & Giveaway


Writing is one of the most critical aspects of academic development, impacting all levels of communication and the learning process. An improper grip can yield illegible writing but more importantly, can interrupt cognitive flow. A child’s level of concentration and ability to process and generate content can be halted or slowed. This is easily corrected.  And, The Pencil Grip, Inc. is addressing this problem with the Original Pencil Grip, Crossover Pencil Grip and the Pinch Grip.


This Pencil Grip guides children and adults in proper hand positioning, promoting good penmanship and expression while reducing hand cramps, stressed muscles and sore fingers.  The set of three grips make up the number one family of grips recommended to help improve handwriting for all ages. Starting with theCrossover Grip, transitioning to the Pinch Grip and graduating to the Original Grip will address different challenges and help achieve a lifetime of comfort and control while writing, drawing and even coloring.

Our Thoughts



I am a homeschooling mom and one of the most important things to teach children aside from reading, is how to write, correctly! My youngest daughter has excellent penmanship but my oldest daughter struggles with neat writing so the Pencil Grip was a sure-fired way to teach her proper hand holding techniques.

The packages came with a very informative sheet that had multiple pictures of correct and incorrect hand holding techniques. It also explained the proper way to put the pencil grip onto the pencil for optimal hand writing techniques.

At first when I put it on, she wasn't a fan, but she just wasn't used to it. I could tell immediately that the strength in which she holds a utensil was already better. It took her a few days to get used to writing with help from the grip but there was a noticeable improvement. I suspect she'll be using these for a while but it's excellent for kids who need added help with writing.

They come in so many fun colors too, whether you prefer girl or boy colors, or a little added glitter, there's something for each child! They are very rubbery feeling and thick too so it's not something that I see being broken easily like a little rubber toy, they are pretty sturdy.

If your child has difficulty writing (or even adults!) this is a great product to use to help you get better at it.
