I recently bought a Mason-Pearson "Handy" hairbrush for myself and love it. My husband (a senior) has fine hair which is thinning with age. I thought perhaps the child's brush would be more comfortable for him, so I ordered him a blue one. He loves it, and much prefers it over our larger boar bristle brush. He likes the blue color as it's easy to find in the drawer of hair styling tools. The bristles seem to feel just as stiff as the "Handy" brush, so just for comparison, I tried this brush on my fairly coarse, medium-short hair and found the brush too "lightweight" for my hair. Pros: - Gives a good, stiff brush-through without tugging fine hair or scrapping your scalp. Seems to reduce static electricity and hair is less fly-away than with our old drug-store brush.
Not just for children!

It was exactly what it was supposed to be. The only thing that was different about it since i bought one for this child's mother was the price.It costs a lot more than it did 30 some-odd years ago.

I've wanted this brush for a couple of years. I finally broke down and purchased it. And I'm so happy I did. It's awesome! Yes, the price is crazy, but it's definitely worth it. I bought the brush for myself as I have thin, short-medium hair that's very fragile. It's simply the best brush I've ever used. It leaves my hair looking shiny and makes my scalp feel great. I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase. In fact, I'm thinking about buying the adult sized Sensitive brush.

And kudos to Whatshebuys! I ordered this on a Monday evening and received it on Thursday afternoon. And I'm on the East Coast!
Excellent service/ perfect hairbrush. They last a lifetime and are a must for shining hair. I have had them since I was a kid and now my children can have one too. This is a perfect brush for children. I recieved my brush in one day. Thank you !
