Hello Kitty Erasers

Have you ever found one of your favorite characters in the form of an eraser? This is one way that people have found out about the world of Japanese erasers and Hello Kitty is an example of this.

Ikuko Shimizu originally created Hello Kitty and it is produced by the company Sanrio. It was produced in the United States in 1976, two years after being created in Japan in 1974. Considering that you can find Hello Kitty in video games, on different types of accessories, and in supplies for school, it's no surprise to see it on erasers. You can even see Hello Kitty in a theme park called Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo! Not surprisingly, the theme park is one of the most popular attractions in Japan.

There are all kinds of Hello Kitty erasers – everyone would not guess that there are scented Hello Kitty erasers available. Fortunately, the scents are things like pudding, banana, orange, peach, strawberry, soda, and grapefruit and not actual kitties. There are even silly putty erasers that are scented that can be shaped and played with like a toy, in addition to their use as an eraser. The types of Japanese erasers are pretty much unlimited.

It is amazing how many different things are available under the Hello Kitty theme. There are Hello Kitty shoes, night lamps, floral arrangements, Pez dispensers, dog collars, tarot cards, guns, and reading lights. There are even Hello Kitty pianos and teeth in the shape of Hello Kitty's face.

Best of all, there is a Hello Kitty house in Shanghai! The entire exterior and interior have a Hello Kitty theme. There is no doubt that several girls could call this their dream house. One would feel like she's walking into a fairy tale house.

Hello Kitty erasers inside are pretty much a certainty.

From what I've seen there are not any Japanese eraser themed houses available, but there must be a small town of them assembled somewhere …
