Good Questions: Are There Safety Scissors That Actually Work?

Pam wrote in with a question we've been wondering ourselves:

Are there safety scissors that don't suck? It seems like every type I buy either has a metal blade, which I'm told is a no-no, or else they're plastic and all they do is bend the paper. My three-year-old (who's in a "I can do it myself" phase) gets so frustrated, she doesn't even want to make crafts any more, and I can't say I blame her.

Great question, Pam. If anyone has a lead on good safety scissors for preschoolers, let us know in the comments!
