2. The new Griffix writing range from Pelikan
Pelikan were one of the first manufacturers to make specific left-handed version of their pens and their junior and school cartridge pens have been popular for many years with customer of Anything Left-Handed.
Pelikan have now launched a new four-stage writing system to help children progress from colouring through to adult writing and they have made a complete left-handed version as well.
The system consists of four stages:
and each of the writing instruments is available in four bright colour options and has refills available.
- Wax crayon
- Lead pencil
- Fibre tip pen
- Fountain pen
The pens all have a specially designed grip area to encourage the proper hold of the pen and the best writing position and there is an exercise book available for each stage that gives fun practice of the techniques and helps the child progress rapidly.
We think this is one of the most exciting developments in teaching writing to children for a long time and can highly recommend it.
