Pink and Dusty Pink Japanese Bird ErasersNov 24, 2009
These Japanese eraser birds are made by Iwako. We have talked about some of their puzzling colors choice before, such as the new baby novelty erasers. The 2 pink bird Japanese erasers above, are included in a new set of bird erasers. The darker pink, in the left photo, is a older color that is still in production and we call it "Pink Bird Eraser". The Japanese eraser bird on the right is a different and new pink that we call,"Dusty Pink Eraser".
Rather than include 2 colors of pink in this set, they could of used the pastel green they use for matcha flavored food erasers or even black. We wonder if the color choices that Iwako makes for their collectible erasers on based on what sells well in the Japanese domestic market.
