Japanese food erasers are tiny, ultra cute erasers. I would not even think of using these to actually erase anything because they look so great. These erasers are usually pretty small–no larger than a marble usually. You can find them in sets most of the time. They are also sold individually if you’re trying to find specific food items to add to your collection.
So instead of buying just a food item, you’ll get a full meal! The color and detail on these erasers are incredible. They are brightly, fully colored and have very good detail. There are styles that are made more cute and cartoony, but some are also pretty realistic. School kids and even older adults love these.
There are many manufacturers of these lovely little food erasers so you have a very large selection to choose from. Some big brand names that make these are Hapa Culture, Iwako, Itasho and more.
So many different styles of erasers are available! You can find many styles such as:
If you’ve eaten it, there’s probably a miniature eraser made for it too. There are so many varieties available it is mind spinning! You could collect these forever.
These erasers make great gifts since they are so cute! They are pretty rare depending on where you are so they are special when the recipient gets them. You will likely be able to find a food eraser for their favorite food too.
The ones I have seen are non-toxic so you can give them to children too given they are not too young to swallow it.
I have not seen any other companies make these food erasers other than Japanese ones. You can be sure there are common Japanese erasers such as sushi, cakes, tea, and noodles. But they know everyone would love these so a ton of other foods are available.
