Gator Grabber Tweezers™

Ages 2+

Sized for little hands and great for developing the pincer grasp! Working on fine motor skills is fun when children get to use an Alligator to grip objects.

Includes:

     • 12 tweezers – 6 colors (red, yellow, purple, orange, blue and green)
     • Plastic storage container

Tweezers measure 4”L

Grades: Toddler +

Learning Style: Tactile

Skill Development:

Fine Motor- As students pick up objects with the tweezers, they are working on motor planning and eye-hand coordination (visual-motor integration) and refining the manual skills needed for writing, drawing and daily living.

Sensory Integration- Students who are hypersensitive to textures can participate in tactile play using tweezers to hold and move objects.

Self-Help- Incorporate puppet-like conversations to enhance communication and social interactions. Gator (tweezers) can speak to or try to gobble up the other person, increasing direct contact with another.

    Comments about Gator Grabber Tweezers™:

    The Gator Grabbers are designed to help small children learn how to use their hands to open and close over things, and how to pick things up.

    Even though my boys are older, they made a game out of the Grabbers, and used them to pick up papers off the floor in a race, and also used them to pick up a variety of toys.

    These are a great tool for imagination play, along with physical and learning abilities!!

    I was given a set of the Gator Grabbers for review purposes.

        Comments about Gator Grabber Tweezers™:

        We received the Gator Grabber Tweezers for the month of August. I knew Isabella would have a blast with these tweezers from the moment I laid eyes on them. She's into small items that she can easily grasp with her tiny hands, and the Gator Grabber Tweezers are perfect for that. The bucket {with a cute, green handle} comes with 12 tweezers that she can pick up things with. This helps develop her fine motor skills and the pincher grasp often used in school activities {writing, drawing, etc}.

        My daughter doesn't quite use them for their designated purpose. She loves lining things up, and this was no different. I have no doubt that she will eventually catch on to "grabbing" with these adorable gator tweezers!

        The colors are eye-catching and sure to be loved by toddlers everywhere! Isabella was highly amused by the various colors included! Her favorite color is purple. :)

        Gator Grabber Tweezers are recommended for kids ages 2-5. My daughter is almost 2 1/2, and she thoroughly enjoys playing with these colorful tweezers. She likes simple toys, and I was happy to see her so engrossed in a product that will help her fine tune her fine motor skills.

        Disclosure: I received a free product in exchange for an honest review. However, all opinions are strictly my own.

        Excellent for Fine Motor Skills!

        Comments about Gator Grabber Tweezers™:

        This set is a tremendous value! You get enough tweezers to share with other children by way of gifts or just during play dates.
        The act of concentrating and picking up objects with these tweezers makes a tremendous difference in overall hand-eye coordination and readiness for writing. Such an excellent tool!

        Comments about Gator Grabber Tweezers™:

        I'm a school occupational therapist. My school speech therapy colleague and I loved using these gator grabbers for a group OT/Speech therapy activity with our primary aged kids. I love the variety of colors that helped reinforce color identification, and the tweezers have an appropriate amount of resistance to strengthen the small muscles of the hand for pre-writing and pre-cutting skills. We had great success using these gator grabbers with Froggy Feeding Fun activity, and the kids had a blast!
