If writing with a pencil works well, both with the correct pen position and the basic motor skills (speed, pressure, rhythm and form), we recommend a special school fountain pen as the next step in learning to write. With this pen, children can refine their handwriting and develop an individual handwriting style. The two ergonomic school fountain pens STABILO EASYbirdy and STABILO EASYbuddy were developed to provide the best possible support here.
Perfect for the beginning: STABILO EASYbirdy
The ergonomically shaped EASYbirdy school fountain pen was specially developed for students who want to improve their writing skills with ease. It is unique in many respects: for example, the nib can be adjusted at three angles to optimally suit the child's hand position. This means that the nib always lies perfectly straight on the paper, resulting in an even, homogeneous typeface without scratching or blotting. In addition, a special edging on the nib prevents children from getting blue fingers when writing, which in turn also leads to a clean notebook image.
STABILO EASYbuddy - fully thought out
The EASYbuddy is also fully designed to meet the writing needs of children. The fountain pen with its non-slip soft grip zone promotes a relaxed pen posture and prevents premature muscle fatigue. With the extra-large viewing window, checking the ink level of both cartridges is a breeze and there are no nasty surprises during a test. In addition, specially developed technology in the cap of the fountain pen results in optimized spill protection. Spots on the paper due to leaking ink are thus a thing of the past.

Frequently asked questions:
The answer depends very much on the child's motor skills.
Basically, there are two technical options here: Rollerball and fountain pen. Rollerball pens are preferable to fountain pens when children have not yet developed good and automated writing motor skills. However, if children are already achieving good results with the pencil, can dose pressure well and write fluently and rhythmically, then the fountain pen is a good choice immediately after the pencil.
Which fountain pen is best then depends on the child's specific needs and preferences. Is a particularly clean typeface the goal, does the child often have blue fingers due to the fingers slipping forward onto the nib, or does the fountain pen often scratch when writing? Then the STABILO EASYbirdy, with its individually adjustable nib and nib surround to prevent blue fingers, is the best choice. If you always want maximum control over the ink level of both cartridges, if leaking of the fountain pen is a problem or if a particularly cool design is important, then we recommend the STABILO EASYbuddy.
A learn-to-write fountain pen or rollerball is a writing instrument designed especially for the needs and anatomical conditions of elementary school children. In addition to ergonomic grip zones, the features of school fountain pens range from special nibs for beginners and left-handers, to special nib surrounds to prevent blue fingers, to the possibility of adjusting the nib angle, to particularly large viewing windows for the ink level and increased spill protection. Rollerball pens for school are a good and easier-to-use alternative, especially if the child's motor skills are not yet optimally developed (too much pressure, too little speed or rhythm when writing, etc.).
