Stories from our Customers
were on vacation in SF during Thanksgiving in 2008. My daughter who was
in first grade was switching between hands when writing in school and
was writing poorly as well as slowly. We stumbled upon your store on
Pier 39 and I couldn't believe all the variety of products.
Your store had several pens out and available to try. As soon as she
picked up the Stabilo Smove pens and pencils
her hand went into a natural writing position that looked comfortable,
and when she wrote she said it felt 'easy' to use. By the end of her
first grade year her handwriting has improved dramatically and she is
now exclusively using her left hand. ... I had completely forgotten to
get my artsy/craftsy daughter a pair of lefty scissors.
I thought the school was providing them for her. It wasn't until the
teacher gave us some cutting exercises that I noticed she was trying to
cut with her right hand! When I asked her, she said she was given right
I purchased another set of scissors for her to use
at school. No more problems. Thank you Lefty's for meeting the needs of
those who are 'right minded'."
daughter, Kendall, is 8 years old. She is the first left handed person
in our family tree. I home-school our 3 children and Kendall has had
some struggles in her learning. I felt ill-equipped to help her learn
basic skills and we both felt frustrated at times. My friend told me about a store with tools and equipment specifically for
left-handed people. I had never heard of such a store! Kendall was
thrilled and excited when she opened a box from Leftys and saw all the
"tools" made especially for her! I was amazed when I started reading
the enclosed book, 'Your Left-handed Child' by Lauren Milson!
It has made our lives so much easier. Kendall loves using her 'special' pencils and scissors
when doing her school work! I am so very grateful to Leftys for showing
me how to help and teach my left-handed daughter and giving her pride
and confidence as she uses her tools, made especially for her!"
