Kokeshi Dolls and Maneki Neko: quite possibly the cutest Iwako Erasers ever!

Just got another batch of Iwako eraser sets for my nieces that have been growing their novelty eraser collection for a few years with a bit of help from yours truly. These Japanese erasers can easily be taken apart and put back together in different combinations. The Maneki Neko (Lucky Cat) and Kokeshi doll models are available in 6 different colors each. The kimono on the dolls is actually a wrapper decorated with colorful fabric prints. Reportedly they work well as erasers too, but I have not test that claim myself.
These puzzle erasers would make great classroom incentives and gifts for the school-age kids in your list. I bet quite a few grown-ups would also be happy to receive any of them. Who could refuse a "Lucky Cat" or "Kokeshi Doll" eraser to brighten a work station or cubicle?
