The Jumbo Grip Pencil with it's triangular shape can help a child adapt to the tripod pencil grasp. The Soft-Lead Pencil helps when a child holds their pencil too tightly or bears down on the pencil.
The Jumbo Grip Pencil has a triangular-shaped barrel, which can help a child establish the tripod grasp. This pencil is thick, like a fat “primary pencil”, but not quite as bulky due to the triangular shape. It is lightweight, and the black dots are raised to keep fingers from slipping. #2 lead, made by Faber-Castell.
The Soft-Lead Pencil is an artists’ sketching pencil (6B). This pencil can help a child lighten their grip. Some children bear down on their pencil with a tight hand, simply to see a darker line on their paper. Prevent this from becoming a habit—give them a Soft-Lead Pencil so they can make a dark line with less pressure. (Equivalent to a #1 lead.)
