Tiny and Cute: Japanese Erasers

Ever since we ordered the Japanese erasers in January I've been obsessed with them. What is it about miniatures that makes them so cute?

Finally, they arrived and I've been acting like a kid playing with them ever since. We have pancakes, cupcakes, donuts, ice cream, and more yumminess.

Each eraser component is injection-molded separately, and then put together like a puzzle in the factory. Because they aren't glued together, they can be taken apart over and over again.
There's something magical about these babies. $1.50 each in the store. Available in sets of 6 on the website here.

I am so eager to receive these for my adult art students. They seem particularly appropriate for Easter time, too. I would also think they would be great for elementary teachers to use as rewards with the motto--Mistakes are an important part of learning. SDB

Great ideas.

FYI, I just tested the donut, and it erased a dark #2 pencil mark beautifully.
