Crazy About Stationary

January 13, 2009 at 11:31 am 4 comments

Cute, fancy stationary and stationary accessories are very popular in Japan. Lots of kids collect erasers shaped like food or cartoon animals, and adults are also on the lookout for the latest variations on home and office gear, like see-through fountain pens that show you exactly how much ink you have left. Pencil cases and watercolor sets make great gifts as well.

Jet Pens has a series of colorful, mini-ball point pens that clip like clothespins onto your notebook. I’m always shoving my pens into the spiral and getting them stuck there, so this is probably number one on my to-buy list.

I also like the correction-tape pens that come in different sizes, including one for your keychain. It’s like a hipper version of white out, perfect for quick fixes.

The cutest items by far are the novelty erasers, which seriously look good enough to eat. To my slight embarrassment, the “American food” category consists of donuts, cakes, shakes, French fries and burgers. You may feel healthier using tiny erasers shaped like sushi, tempura, gyoza, onigiri rice triangles, dim sum, and even bowls of noodles!

Eraser Crazy features every eraser shape imaginable: little dinosaurs, motorcycles, lipstick, puppies, pandas, hamsters and more. No wonder kids collect them – they’re far too adorable to actually use…
