What to Consider When Purchasing Erasers
Contrary to popular belief, not all erasers are created equal! Consider these key factors while shopping for your next erasers:
- Use: To erase, we know, but will the eraser be used in art class for drawing where a more precision eraser may be useful? Or are you planning on using it during a test where there can’t be any smudges or ripped paper?
- Size: If your kid (or you) likes or needs to erase a lot, then a larger eraser will be better. If something a little smaller is preferred, then a pencil top can be the answer.
- Material: Latex-free designs can be great, although as long as the eraser is non-toxic, it will be safe for your kiddo. Quality rubber is typically the best to help eliminate paper tears or smudges.
