Iwako Erasers

I have been searching for miniature food toys to pair with the Sylvanian Families, Lalaloopsy dolls and to showcase in general in the dollhouses.  The ones sold with the Sylvanian Families collection are quite expensive so I tried IWAKO ERASERS FOOD SETS which are small enough to fit with the Sylvanian and could be used for other creative play too.

What I like about those erasers is that they can be taken apart and put together again. And they are very cheap!

Japanese Food Set

This seven piece eraser set includes :
  • a tray (which is the only item that is not an eraser)
  • an oven top
  • a cup of green tea
  • a plate of fried rice
  • a bento box with shrimp tempura over white rice 
  • a bowl of udon noodle
  • a bowl of ramen noodle
  • a pot of soup / noodle

Chinese Food Dim Sum Eraser Set

This seven piece set includes:
  • a plate of pan-fried dumplings
  • a plate of fried rice
  • 2 baskets of dim sum
  • 2 bowls of noodles
  • 4 pairs of chopstick in a cup

This set includes four individually wrapped lunch plate:
  • a plate of fried rice
  • a plate of omurice (omelette filled with rice) with ketchup, sausages, green beans
  • a plate of shrimp tempura, corn, green beans 
  • a plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce, carrots and green beans

Fast Food Assortment

The fast food set includes:
  • a tray (which is the only item that is not an eraser)
  • a serving of french fries
  • a hamburger
  • a hot dog
  • a sandwich
  • a milkshake
  • a soda drink
  • a drink in a can

Japanese Restaurant

This set includes seven individually wrapped Japanese food dish:
  • a bowl of udon noodle
  • a bow of ramen noodle
  • a plate of rice and curry
  • a bento box with some meat over white rice
  • a bento box with shrimp tempura over white rice 
  • a pot of soup / noodle
  • a serving of umeboshi (pickled plum) with rice 

I am very pleased with all the food sets! They are bigger than the food set from the Sylvanian Families collection but they still fit rather nicely and the kids don't mind so much the bigger size. Especially if the children are very young, they cannot play with the extremely small size of the Sylvanian Families food sets.


  1. Great find, aren't they? I have a few of these myself, and they're perfect for 1:6 play scale dolls too. They're so colorful and fun! xo Jennifer

    1. The kids love them! I think they like them more than the expensive food toys! Probably because they can take them apart :P

  2. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT MY JAPANESE ERASER OBSESSION????????????????????? we like all the same stuff!

    1. Really? We do like the same stuff! :D I was going to give the erasers to the kids as rewards for good behavior but I like them so much I'll keep them and buy other ones for the kids! ;-)
