New stationery weapon for lefties
BEFORE Layne Bennett-Wood, 11, started using pens and crayons designed especially for left-handers his school work was a mess.
"My teacher couldn't read (my work)."
"It was a lot messier than it is now."
Now, Layne's pencil case is filled with writing implements from online store Yoropen.com.au.
The pens are designed so the nib meets the page at an angle.
Mum Megan said the pens allowed Layne to see what he was writing without having to tilt his page.
"I'm going to stick with them," Layne said.
Luckily for his parents, they're not too expensive.
A pencil goes for $2.20 and a pack of crayons for just $7.
