Cute Japanese Toys | Japanese Mini Erasers
They Are The Latest Rage In To Collect!
When it comes to cute Japanese toys, these darling itsy-bitsy Japanese mini erasers are quite the rage with kids, especially in the middle schools. They love to collect them and they also love to trade them.
The most well-known and trusted brand brand is Iwako. Their tiny miniatures come in many shapes such as food, cars, animals, sea creatures, toys, household items, etc.
Some of them come with different scents -- mostly the fruits and vegetables.
Many of these collectible erasers are actually tiny puzzles, made of even smaller pieces that can be taken apart and put back together! This means they are not suitable for young children. The product packaging states that they are only for children at least 8 years of age.
These colorful, fun, TINY erasers are great for giving as rewards or incentives or party favors, for collecting and displaying and/or trading, as doll house props, and so on.

Could Your "Inner Child" Love This, Too?
I think there is something fascinating about tiny, miniature versions of things we use and eat in our everyday lives, no matter what our age....
I am in my middle 50's now, but no grandchildren yet. My nieces and nephews are already out of school, so I think I may have found out about this collectible craze too late AND perhaps too early to indulge in my urge to order a bunch of these, since I'd feel silly buying them for myself!
(Then again, maybe I'll decide my "inner child" would LOVE to collect these... you never know!) *smile*
This collection craze has been going on for awhile now. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. At least for now, it's still going full swing!
If you have kids to buy gifts for (whether they are your own kids or not, or you decide to indulge your "inner child" obsession with tiny miniatures of real life objects), find out if they are obsesses with this latest collectible craze YET. If not, YOU can be the one to get them started!
These colorful, teensy-weensy, totally CUTE toys are simply adorable and the opportunity to INEXPENSIVELY create a not only treasured but envied collection is HUGE.
