About this Product
The Amazing Mini Gripper
A unique playing card holder for small hands.
This great fabric started out to be a quilt for a friend, but once started, my wife found the pattern was incorrect and she couldn't finish. She then decided to donate it to me so I could make card holders for you to enjoy!
This card holder shows a momma Dolphin with her baby breaching the surface of the water. It's a cute scene showing the love and care the momma has for her baby. I only had enough images to make 3 of these, and when they're gone, that's all there is. BUT when that happens, you can check my other "Dolphin" listing by clicking on the following link: https://gripperplayingcardhold...
Sometimes it's really hard to hold playing cards when small hands are involved. A lot of adults and young folks would love to play all those fun card games out there, but have a difficult time holding onto all those cards.
Well, here is a unique solution to that:
At just a hair over 3” in diameter it fits nicely in a small hand. It has a nice padded feel and made just for adults and kids with small hands. And it'll hold all those darned cards that are difficult to hang onto! Not only will it hold them, it grips the cards so they won’t accidentally fall out. The player can add, remove, or re-arrange the cards with no problems. They can even lay them down on the table if a break is needed - no need to take the cards with them, or taking the whole card holder with the cards is an option too!
This card holder may be small, but it WILL hold more than 30 standard sized playing cards!
Easy to follow instructions are included in all my Gripper playing card holders.
Please note that the playing cards shown in the photos are not included.
All my Gripper playing card holders are produced in a smoke-free, pet-free and more importantly, a VIRUS-FREE environment.

Meet the Maker
Hello, and thank you for stopping by! My name is Rob (posing with my beautiful wife Jeanne) and I'm excited that you've decided to drop by to learn a bit about me and why I make playing card holders!
Prior to becoming a crafter, I was a self-taught artist, dabbling in watercolors, oils, acrylics and pencil. When I retired the first of 2007, I tried my hand at producing paintings of landscapes, birds, flowers, and even portraits. However, it didn't take me long to find out that unless one is extremely talented the artwork pretty much goes unnoticed.
I'm having a good time in my retirement and this new chapter of my life, but I'm the type of person who needs to be busy.
So when my wife retired a couple of years later, we decided to try the "Snow Bird" scene for a while. (It was fun, but all the driving to and fro plus the packing, etc. got way too tiring so that was the end of that.)
But while we were there I discovered that many retirees loved to play card games. However, I also learned that there were many who had problems holding the cards due to hand issues, way too many cards, etc. So I decided to set out to find a solution. After many trials and errors, I came up with a prototype which, after consulting with my wife (who has done quite a bit of sewing and quilting) I improved upon and set out to test my "invention" at craft fairs. To my surprise, they went over so well that I actually sold out at my first one! I quickly made more that evening and participated in another craft fair where I just about sold out again.
After arriving back home, I improved upon my design yet again and started making more for our next trip to the south. The next craft fair was a testament to word of mouth advertising, as many of my customers were referrals from the customers who bought from me the previous year. Thus, the Amazing Gripper Playing Card Holders were born! My unique card holders have continued to evolve to what you see here in my shop. Over the years, I've added many styles to the delight of many of my loyal customers.
So there you are - my story in a nutshell. I hope you enjoyed reading it; please continue to browse my shop and contact me if you've got any ideas or comments. Enjoy, and have fun at the card table!
How it’s Made
These special sized card holders are made using poly-carbonate discs that have been created using my specifications. This size allows me to create my Mini Grippers for all those card players out there with small hands, be they children just learning or adults. Each one is meticulously constructed with great attention to detail. Because of that, each one actually takes anywhere from 1 to 2 days to complete.
