Come September, Iwako will release Omokeshi or Theme Sets 16 and 17. Set 17 contains the new Kokeshi or Doll Japanese erasers and Maneki Neko or Happy Cat Japanese erasers. Set 16, has the new Cruller and Macaroon erasers that arrived in June 2011.
Omokeshi 16 also has one of Iwako's most elusive erasers.
The Fresh Strawberry Cake Japanese eraser.
The Fresh Strawberry Cake Japanese eraser is one of Iwako's older but very popular Japanese erasers. Elusive because we only get a handful in the master box assortment of dessert erasers from Iwako.
We can only surmise that Iwako put the rectangular shaped Fresh Strawberry Cake Japanese eraser to visually offset the round shapes or the Crullers and Macaroons.
