my twin sons (4 1/2 years old; one left-handed and one right-handed) have problems holding their pencils. These grips guide their fingers in exactly the right position, and they don't complain of any discomfort. Unlike some other products, they a) actually like these and b) can't really hold them wrong.
The only downside is the guides and printing on them is in Japanese, and they have to ask periodically for me to show them again which finger goes on which part of the grip. This lack of intuitiveness is the only downside.
We've tried a soft, spongy Kum brand grip purchased elsewhere that was really nice, though also ambidextrous so didn't provide quite the tailored support, especially of the third finger. We also tried some rubbery bulbous ambidextrous grips, also purchased elsewhere, that are strange and can aid, but don't seem to encourage, a proper grip.
I wish JetPens would carry the Kum grips, since they carry other Kum products already.
