This big grip is the "Star of the Pencil Grips" because it's unique shape with a star on the top is great at developing a three point, opposed, pencil grasp. It effectively blocks thumb IP extension and facilitates thumb opposition. A wonderful new grip, especially for younger children. Fingers go on the sides and the star faces up. Can be used by right or left handers. Children, who have used the START RIGHT PENCIL GRIP consistently over several months start using an efficient tripod grasp without thinking about it!
