Super Science Tongs
My kids love them
I bought these for my daughter's 5th birthday party (ladybug theme) as favors for the kids (ages 2-5). The minute we unpacked them from the box, they were a hit! My kids have been picking up everything with them! They do have a very narrow opening, but even my 2 year old figured out how to get around that, he just uses two hands. My 5 year old has no problem using them to pick things up. I also bought the insect finger puppets and the kids have been picking them up and putting them into containers using the tongs. My original plan was to use these tongs to sort the foam insect beads (also from OT) by size, color and type of bug. These seem like they will hold up well and are a good size for little fingers. I am happy with this purchase.

I ordered these to give my preschoolers practice for small motor strengthening. The tweezers hardly open up, so there is no resistance, to build their finger muscles. These were a very fair price, but not what I expected for the job I intended.

I have bought these for my 9 year old daughter's scavenger hunt party. They are very cute and sturdy and will last long after the party. I am very pleased with this purchase.

These are cute, and are an added item in "Bug Bags" I make up for the Samaritan's Purse OCC shoebox gifts. However, I was disappointed in the colors I received. I received green ladybugs, red butterflies, and purple frogs...I would have preferred red ladybugs, purple butterflies, and green frogs!

I bought these for my kids to work on picking up pom-poms and putting them in plastic trays....but they have to open them up first before picking anything up with them. Since I have looked for awhile for something like this...we will keep using them.

I had been looking for larger tongs for my kindergarten class. These are cute and big. I wish they were a little wider, but they still worked well.

This product is good for little hands to have fun with but the opening is small and hard for some kids to work with.

I am a 3 year old preschool teacher and bought these for fine motor work.
They are decent quality and the children are enjoying them.
the one tiny complaint, if any, that i would say is the natural opening is a little small. so it is hard for the children to pick up items as they have to open them a little to get the item in them and being three...
