Update: 3.30.14 These scissors both are still in use in my preschool classroom along with 6 additional pairs! We love the non-stick surface of the blades. Kids cut through wet glue and paint, teachers cut sticky contact paper and everything just washes right off!
7.14.12 I recently received a pair of Westcott Kids Scissors with Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection along with a pair of Titanium Non-Stick 8″ Straight Teacher Scissors for review and wow are we impressed! My team works with 3-4 year olds, 17 of them to be exact, and all 20 of us really loves these scissors! We need to be able to cut (as every teacher knows) fabric, cardboard, contact paper, cardboard covered with contact paper, and cardboard wet with glue and glitter to name a few! We’ve been using our new titanium scissors for about two months and they’ve come through every time! Our old scissors are still sticking out of the holder right next to the Westcott scissor. We are consistently finding ourselves reaching for the Westcott. The blades are the sharpest I’ve used and the contact paper adhesive wipes right off! Titanium! Beautiful! The children’s are just as nice! Sharp enough to cut easily even for beginners, (important in preschool) and the blunt tip makes them as safe as any other kid scissor. The Microban® Antimicrobial is a nice added benefit with all the children using the scissors every day! Thank you Westcott!Read More
