Update: I’ve seen a lot of hits coming from people looking for where to buy these…so here ya go. 🙂 Quick link to JBox item page (refferal link)
Lately I’ve been a little obsessed with YouTube videos that feature silent people opening toy packages. My boyfriend thinks it’s the silliest thing and I agree. But there’s SOMETHING about watching those videos that relaxes me. My favorite YouTube channels to visit are MosoGourtmet and RRCherryPie. After watching a lot of videos I felt excited about getting my own.
So I decided to get my own kit from J-box and make some erasers! This is the kit I bought and for $7.50 I found it to be a good purchase.
The instructions come in japanese and I cannot read a bit of japanese so I just used the visual guide mixed with information from jbox and advice from You Tube videos.
I started out first with the pink rabbit and it was almost a colossal failure. One of his eyes didnt stick during the “microwaving” process so I used a marker to create an eye patch. Some of it smeared but I think he looks fine.
For my second try I created the green bear and I am much happier with it. I cannot get the eyes as small as they do in the packaging and I think I didn’t use enough eraser clay since the two halves don’t really stick very well. I thought it was interesting that the packaging never shows the eraser from the side so I think they cant get the two halves to stick well either.
Finally I made the squirrel and although the colors are a bit boring, making this different shape (with a tail and everything) was super fun.
I’m pretty much done for now…but I wanted to show you I still have enough for making a couple more erasers. I’m thinking of combining colors and maybe making a purple bear. 🙂
That’s all! In summary, I had a lot of fun with this little kit…and while the wait for J-List to send my package was ridiculous, the kit itself is worth the money.
