We were stocking the Iwako Rabbit Japanese erasers and we noticed that the rabbit Japanese erasers in the latest shipment had black eyes. So it seems that the rabbit Japanese erasers with "white eyes" are discontinued. We have both versions on the site and are referring to the older style as "white eye".
The rabbit Japanese erasers do look much better with the black eyes. The addition of the black eyes give the rabbit Japanese erasers a smile. We find this interesting, as when you look at the white eye version, they seem to have a serious look, even though both versions have the same faces.
