GreatShield Chalkee Kid Friendly Stylus for Touchscreen Devices (Pink)

I thought this would be a good idea for my husbands smaller students. Turns out, not so much.

First: It is too much like sidewalk chalk. The students (Kindergarten and 1rst Graders) would hold it like a stick instead of like a pencil (or normal stylus). They ended up pushing very hard.

Second: Turns out, the above is why you no longer see the big pencils in classrooms. Better to use standard sized pencils and styluses to build fine motor skills.

Third: The rubber tip tore by the end of the 4th day. Luckily my husband noticed before it was scratched across his tablet by a hard working 1rst Grader.

Overall: 2 stars. It looks and feels just like it is supposed to. It just doesn’t seem to be a good idea in practice.
