My daughter loves to make crafts, but she is always complaining about heavy regular scissors are for her age. She is 9 and can handle them better than when she was a little younger, but she still has some problems with the weight of adult scissors and the length of the blades.  With these scissors, she had an easier time cutting out things for craft projects. Cutting circles was easier with the 5 inch blades and this helped her cut on the lines easier as well.

The only thing that we didn't like was that they tended to stick occasionally. Sometimes they were a little harder to open up and even doing this mid cutting at times.  It could be a defect in this pair of scissors, or it could be something in all of them. That would be a chance you would have to take.

4/5 Stars
