I found these scissors at our local dollar store. I bought them as you can see because they have a unique feature. There is the yellow piece that sticks out between the handles for lift assistance. That yellow piece can be moved between the scissors to allow a child with poor muscle development to help open the scissors when they're cutting. Obviously enough it can be folded like it is in the picture for easy storage. It also can give pressure when you are cutting down which most kids find easy to do if you leave it out. If you don't need this feature they are still a great pair of safety scissors. I have seen in catalogs scissors simular to these but if you're needing a pair and your budget is tight this might be an alternative in your area.
