JetPens Review: Iwako Zoo Novelty Eraser - Elephant

I received a package in the mail from JetPens, which I knew was coming, but I had no idea what would be in it. I squished the package around before opening it, trying to guess, but I couldn't figure it out. I knew it was small, and firm. But I just couldn't guess. I opened it up and this...hilarious. Adorable. Wee little eraser was inside. I actually started to laugh because it was just cute and comical.

Without his trunk on, Mr. Elephant somewhat resembles a koala bear.
Mr. Elephant here came in a little plastic bag, and some assembly was required. Fortunately, he was not difficult to figure out.

Mr. Elephant does present a choking hazard, so be careful! This includes pets!
Out of Packaging
Mr. Elephant, in half his glory.
He also disassembles into three pieces. WHAT HAVE I DONE?! Don't worry, he puts back together very easily.

I wonder if I could move his parts around like a Mr. Potato Head...
He does not have any ivory, so he will be safe in your pencil case. (Except from stationery-stealers.)

Mr. Elephant, in ALL his glory!
He likes to hang out with his buddies, the Midori elephant paper clips.

Mr. Elephant and TEH PAPERCLIPZ. Chillaxin'.
He has two jobs: one is to erase things you want erased, the other is to look really cute. He does both these jobs very well. In fact, I am surprised at how well Mr. Elephant erases! I was expecting a cheaper eraser, but he is nice, soft rubber, and he really went to work on that Uni-ball Kuru Toga scribble, and got rid of it cleanly.

How DO you erase?

VERY WELL, actually. Very well. But you sacrificed a portion of your hind leg!

This absurdly cute little Mr. Elephant eraser will surprise you with its clean erasing capabilities. I was not expecting such quality from this little guy. Highly recommended as an adorable eraser! You can get several and put them all over the place so you'll never be without. And hey, sometimes you just need something small and cute to tip you over the edge to get to $25 for the free shipping. What's wrong with an adorable little elephant eraser that'll erase its heart out for you?

**I was provided one or more of these products for review, but all opinions are my own!

I had the cat and dog paper clips from Muji recently. And eraser is "adorable". But keep it well otherwise it can easily turn into a cat toy :)

Hahahhaha it totally does look like a koala, the more I look at it!! Even with the trunk..

I love the paperclips :D I've got the kitty ones! But yes, I have to protect it from very curious little fur balls...

Estivalia said...

Sweet, which one did you get? No wait, don't tell me. I will wait for the review hehehe

Azizah Asgarali said...

I know!! I had to test him out for review purposes though. However, he will never be erased with again, and he may live happily ever after on my desk!
