We had a little snow already and we are supposed to have more tonight. The newest product is PenAgain Pens and Pencils. Now, these are not your ordinary pens and pencils. These pens and pencils are designed to teach you how to write comfortably and to take strain and stress off your hand and fingers. These pens and pencils are very comfortable to use after you get used to the new design. (It really doesn't take long!) PenAgain is designed with your hand in mind. They are smooth and reasonably soft with a groove for your index finger to rest in. I found that my hand does not seem to cramp like with regular pens. I received a set of 2 Twist and Write Pencils, 3 Original PenAgains, and 1 PenAgain Ergosleek. The Ergosleek is heavier, and made of metal.
These are the Twist and Write above. They have erasers on the side of the curve.
According to PenAgain:
"When you first use the PenAgain™, you'll immediately notice how different it feels from other pens. This is a natural feeling because your hand is trying to unlearn a lifetime of poor writing habits. It's not your fault.
Until now, pens have typically been designed with only two things in mind: money and manufacturability. But the PenAgain's primary focus is comfort.
The human hand dictates the design. Even though it may feel strange, try to resist the urge to grip the pen with your fingers. Just let your hand relax, and let the weight of your hand hold the pen in place. You'll feel tension of writing melt away.
The PenAgains are very pleasing to the eye and are guaranteed to be the most unique gift you have ever bought for yourself or for a loved one.
Just see what happens when you use one at your next group meeting, sitting in class or even signing your credit card slip at the store. It starts with its a puzzled look, then a request to hold it, then the inevitable "Where can I get one of these?"Be prepared to let others try it, they will demand it! Also another bit of advice; keep an eye on it at work, they have been known to disappear suddenly."
As PenAgain states you feel the difference immediately. At first I tried to grip the PenAgain. But if you force yourself to relax and continue writing you will notice that you can still write without gripping the pen tightly. My children really like them too. My 13 year old uses hers for taking notes and she likes how comfortable they are.
The Ergosleek is my favorite. I like the way it feels and how it writes.
These would make a great addition as a gift for someone. Throw in a journal or diary and you have a nice little gift basket. You can purchase PenAgain at local retailers or on the PenAgain Website.
