Silly Bandz may be hot here in the US but there is a new trend looming overseas. Japanese puzzle erasers made by Iwako are spreading like wild fire and there is no sign of them slowing down. Why are these erasers so hot? First of all, they are adorable. Do you see those hamsters? Second, they can be taken apart and put back together...like a puzzle. The entire eraser is usable and they are all environmentally safe.
There are many different kinds of puzzle erasers. The most popular are the food erasers and the animal erasers. If you haven't brushed up on these puppies yet, I suggest getting started. You may see them on your child's Christmas list as early as this year.
