The Koopy Spring Scissors were created by a team of internationally renowned ergonomic experts to provide early learning for children. These scissors teach kids how to cut safely, with a spring activated handle that automatically "spring open" for assisted cutting. The spring can be deactivated at any time, and the scissors used normally. Rounded tips provide protection while cutting and a smaller blade and handle size offer easier control. Koopy Scissors are strong and durable, made with brushed stainless steel blades to withstand even the toughest youngster.
