Eco-Friendly Japanese Erasers Now Available in CanadaMonday, March 28, 2011
A few months ago, my daughter attended a birthday party and, as is the custom these days, she parted with a lovely loot bag. One of the things that caught my eye was a set of really unique erasers that came in the shape of food items similar to the ones in the picture below.
Iwako is the only company in Japan where they design and make these authentic Japanese erasers. Each eraser is a beautifully sculpted miniature of an animal, food or toy and can be taken apart and mixed with other erasers to create a new look. There are over 700 designs and new designs will be introduced to the Canadian market over the next little while.
Here are the highlights:
- Non Toxic, Lead and Latex Free safe materials
- Non-PVC - releases no toxic fume
- Energy saving production
- Recycled original Japanese paper packaging
- 100% Made in Japan in clean environmental friendly factories
- Meet all international standards in safety and environmental care
- 1200 pages of safety reports
- Take apart puzzle designs
- Retail $1.99
My daughter absolutely loved these and I know they would be a quite popular among many of my students. They certainly are a lot more practical than those 'silly' rubber bands they keep playing with at their desks. I think these Japanese erasers make a perfect loot bag gift and I love that they are so unique and are of high quality craftsmanship. And you can't forget the fun factor! It's almost a shame to use them as erasers, don't you think?
