We all make mistakes, but once in a while we need a little help. Common gaffes, flubs, and goofs make the world go 'round. Sometimes life proceeds so swimmingly that we find ourselves reduced to online searches for appropriate mistakes. No one's perfect, but some of us will suffer a winning streak now and then.

We present a compendium of mistake-related products guaranteed to make your life more interesting. Browse our choices for helpful suggestions centered on making mistakes as well as eliminating errors, mending miscalculations, and smoothing out shortcomings. We're here to help.

Even pencils have erasers, except those little golf pencils.


So many mistakes have been made lately that a few really smart folks sat down to write a book about it. This enlightening tome delves deeply into the who/what/when/where/why of messing up.

We all make mistakes, but do you know how we justify our gaffes? Jump into this page-turner to learn the truth about what's going on inside your brain when you try to explain to the nice officer precisely why you were speeding in a school zone.


For Big Mistakes Eraser

We learn to use pencils at an early age. Shortly thereafter we make our first writing error. No one wants to turn in a physics test or a Drivers License exam containing errors. Once identified, we need a technology for removing the offending handwriting. This humongous eraser will come to your rescue throughout elementary school, middle school, high school, and on through graduate school. Tuck it into your recyclable backpack where it's easily accessible.

This immense erasing device measures out at 6 inches by 2 inches. It's bigger than most pencils.

Unfortunately, your friends and family probably won't let you work out your own personal drawing style on their on foreheads.

Stow a few of these magical pencil-like devices in your pocket or purse. You'll always be prepared for emergency eyebrow situations. No one will know if you were born with those black lines around your eyes, or if you manually drew them onto your face while looking into the bathroom mirror.
