Mini erasers in all shapes and mostly small sizes have been on our shelves for a little while now, but their profile is about to be elevated by the back to school run.
Ice-creams, donuts and of course unicorns and skulls have all featured.
What's amazing is the amount of detail that has gone into making some of these erasers, which, sadly, if it serves its purpose will be reduced to dust. In fact you would forgiven for mistaking some of them for toys. So be sure to read the labels.
It's also worth noting that many fall apart once out the box - sold as puzzles - numerous pieces are intricately made and positioned together to create say, your favourite Paw Patrol character.
