Children who write with LAMY learn more easily - this is especially true of the LAMY abc learning-to-write system. It has been tried and tested by several generations as an age-appropriate introduction to writing. The combination of fountain pen and pencil was developed in close cooperation with educators and is therefore specially adapted to the needs of children. The ergonomic grip promotes a healthy pen posture and supports the development of fine motor skills. With the LAMY abc, you help your child lay the foundation for relaxed, fluent and neat writing - for life.

Child-friendly learn-to-write fountain pen with polished steel nib. Non-slip, ergonomic grip, high-quality cap and roll-stop in the shape of a cube made of high-quality plastic. Robust body made of maple wood.

Five good reason to write with a fountain pen

  • Fatigue-free writing

    Ergonomic writing instruments have a positive effect on the development of fine motor skills and clearly legible handwriting.

    All instruments from Lamy for learning to write have grips with age-appropriate ergonomics. They produce a secure grip when writing and prevent cramping in the fingers. Consequently, they encourage a fatigue-free writing posture and speed up the development of clearly legible handwriting

  • Training of fine motor skills

    Writing with a fountain pen especially promotes the capacity for coordination and concentration. A fountain pen must be held and guided in one direction. Only then will the pen glide optimally when writing and the ink flow evenly onto the paper. This challenge to the fine motor skills demands a high degree of coordination and concentration from the child – not only when learning to write.

  • Stabilizing movement patterns

    Writing with a fountain pen requires care. Children therefore have more time to memorize the script motions of the individual letters. When writing, the pen is subject to natural resistance from the paper. This resistance provides stability and additional security when guiding the fountain pen, making it easier to follow and internalise movement patterns.

  • Improved script

    The fountain pen slows down writing movements considerably. This means that children work more carefully. Smooth-running rollerballs invite faster and consequently also more careless writing, whereas the slower pace of writing with the fountain pen demands greater care. The result is a clean, uniform and clearly legible script.

  • Wide-ranging pen varieties

    For all writing needs, including left-handers, Lamy has developed special left-handed nibs with tapered tips. This allows left-handers to benefit from fountain pens for learning to write. Fountain pens are the only writing instruments that can be customized to various needs when learning to write. Lamy offers fountain pens with up to four different nib widths, including steel nibs with medium and fine tips, as well as special pens for novice writers and left-handers.
