2-6 years – Learn Control & Grip

2-6 years – Learn Control & Grip


2-6 years – Starting the writing journey. Teaching control, grip and letter formation.

If we asked you to design a pencil to fit a 4year olds hand– what size would you make it?

Our range of innovate pencils have been developed to help children learn and embed the correct writing techniques from an early age and our pencils encourage good handwriting from the beginning.

More often than not, parents provide children with their first writing experiences and as parents you can provide the best possible advantage for your children for their education.

Write Size – we make small pencils for small people

At Write Size we believe children are little versions of us so need smaller clothes, shoes, bikes, sports equipment than adults so why do we give them pencils bigger than pens we use? Does not make sense right!

Ever heard your child say “my hand hurts” when writing with pencils too big for their hands?
Write Size pencils have been developed to lessen the strain on their hands by having a larger and softer graphite, wider diameter for easy grip and the correct length to enable them to have great control and balance.

As writing is a fundamental skill in life and is used in every subject, Write Size pencils make it easier to write as they’re made with children in mind at their core- it is that logical and that simple.

A recent study show’s 27 out of 28 children in a class had an improvement in their handwriting, and wrote more letters per minute when using Write Size pencils.

Key Benefits

  • Greater durability
  • Great Grip and control
  • Longer lifespan
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Writing made quicker and easier


Taking Care of Write Size Pencils

Write Size pencils are made from a top quality wood and only the softest high grade graphite, ensuring your child has the best writing tool for the job.

It is important to keep this writing tool sharp to ensure the best results.

When sharpening a Write Size pencil you will need to use the larger barrel of a double barrel sharpener. You will only need to turn the pencil 2 to 3 times to get the maximum affect.

Write Size offers a combi sharpener & eraser to go with our pencils, which you will find on the ‘shop’ page.

Please note Once the top of your child’s hand reaches the last bar at the top of the pencil, it is no longer the right size to write with. Once  the pencil gets to this length please give your child a new Write Size pencil to ensure maximum impact on your child’s writing ability.

Pencils that are now too short to write with can still be used to draw and scribble with, but NOT to write with.

7 reviews for 2-6 years – Learn Control & Grip

  1. I love write size pencils, they’ve helped my 5 year old daughter come on in leaps and bounds with her writing and spelling. As a mum to 3 children, I fully understand the effectiveness of something as simple as a modified pencil to help children write. Hopefully a lot more children can find writing much easier and less of a struggle now with the pencils made just for their small hands.

  2. Zhainab loved the Write Size pencils, she found the size, feel and grip was excellent and found it easier to write with and found age had more control.

  3. I have 4 children and younger 2 have been using size green set and orange set – they have been using them for only 3 short months and there has been a huge improvement in my 7 year old lads handwriting . He is much happier using write size pencils rather than the normal size ones – I never really thought using the long pencils was causing a problem until I found how much better he wrote using Write Size Pencils. These really are a solution to helping kids learn to write and feel more confident – They are a fantastic product and very happy to have discovered them! Thank you Write Size.

  4. My 3 year old son enjoys writing and drawing but as all kids always struggled finding a comfortable way to hold a pencil, when we introduced Write Size pencils Dylan loved drawing more and even enjoyed learning how to write more. There has been a significant improvement in the way he writes his name and how comfortable he is whilst drawing. Great product !!

  5. Every generation has had to struggle to learn with a longer pencil why do we have to inflict it into today’s children, when we can make writing a lot more easier and fun for them.

  6. Seeing my 5 year old writing with so much ease now and actually enjoying it more because she can balance the pencil in her hand properly just makes us really proud.

  7. Elsa really struggled on how to hold a pencil properly and we actually noticed a decline in her writing once she started school, so it’s been great to see such a huge improvement over the summer holidays.
