Okay, not really – that would be a penguin, a whale, a hamster, and a pineapple – all of which are about an inch tall.
So if you read this post with any regularity, you’ll know that my wife works in the corporate office of Michaels – a big name arts & crafts store, quite possibly THE arts & crafts store. This can come in handy, and if you’ve ever been in a Michaels store, they carry just about everything in the known universe when it comes to arts & crafts. I hadn’t gone in there too many times because I’m not one to get silk flowers but ever since having a kid, my eyes have been opened to the awesomeness that is Michaels. So the current craze right now is Silly Bandz but apparently, despite having been around for a while, the next big thing is
So I got these at Michaels to be a part of the goodie bag we were putting together for my daughter Kate’s party yesterday and I got to tell you……they are awesome! They are made by the Japanese company Iwako and they are very well made, very high quality. Yes, they are erasers but I can’t imagine anybody actually using them to erase anything….why would you? You can get these erasers in any one of a billion different shapes and colors and if the kids reaction to them yesterday was any indication, they are going to be HUGE! (They already have been for a while in Japan + Seattle). I even brought a few up to my office to show the other architects here and they all got stolen and now my little eraser buddies are all over the place. I even came in this morning and found the penguin sitting in a dark spot in my bookshelf…giving me the stink-eye.
‘You lookin’ at me? Are you….lookin’ at me?’
This could get ugly – and by ugly, I mean a lot of fun. I hate to say it but the way that pineapple is looking at that hamster, I think there is going to be some romance happening really soon….and on someones keyboard.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you. They may be the next thing if your 6 years old, but if you are immature like me you can have fun with these things at any age. Pick them up at any Michaels store for a buck and while your there, get some crazy glue….you know where I’m going with this don’t you?
You are sooooo immature….
