Monroeville, PA – InventionHome is pleased to feature a patent-protected teaching tool for children called Skissors. Independent inventors Dawn and Bob Kenny are working with InventionHome to market and license their product to companies in exchange for royalties.
The idea for Skissors began when the mom and dad team noticed their children handling scissors at home. Fearing their children could injure themselves, Dawn and Bob thought about solutions and created a prototype combining hole covers built into a traditional pair of scissors. The simple and effective prototype forces a child to properly insert their thumb and index finger the correct depth into the wholes and safely use the tool for home and school projects.
The Kenny’s product was awarded a utility patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
