Striped Eraser Sticks
Striped Eraser Sticks
My grandchildren just flipped when they saw the eraser sticks. Pencil erasers run out and other kids 'borrow' the kind you snap on the end of a pencil. Having a pen that is all eraser is a great idea. I took a few to keep in my desk.

Do Not Waste Your Money
I thought these looked great, but should have read reviews. You cannot get the eraser out unless you stick something in to push it out the other end and the eraser cannot be advanced unless you take the bottom off again.
The end cap falls out easily and the top cap really does not serve any purpose.
Very pretty, extremely poor functionality.

Good eraser, just need to pull it out with fingers vs. pushing it out
Great eraser for elementary school aged kids. The wide tip thing kept falling off and we didn't see a real purpose for it other than to help the child's grip. You will have to pull the eraser out as you use it; there is not a swivel/twist feature to push the eraser out like on other eraser sticks. But well worth the price for goodie bag stuffing.

I was shocked to see that these received three stars. After reading the reviews, I noticed that a majority of the reviewers had the same bad experience that I had. Had I read the reviews when I first bought, I would have saved myself a lot of trouble. Although bright and fun looking, the eraser easily snaps and when it does, the only way to advance the eraser is to take the "pen" apart and to stick a pointed object in the back to advance the eraser forward. What a pain. My 7 year old daughters quickly tired of them.

They are cheaply made.
Bought these as prizes for my classroom. As a teacher, I need to save money. They are cheaply made and fall apart easily and are difficult for a child to use.

Not a Fan
Many of my erasers were broken and none of them worked like the picture showed or description read.

I read all the reviews - and STILL ordered a package! but at least not as many as I had originally wanted. The eraser stick itself is good quality, but the plastic in which it is housed couldn't be harder to use.What I really want are those eraser sticks that one of the major pen companies offers - ones that will outlast every pencil in the house. These are much more colorful, but are not comparable other than that. Save your money - or keep looking, surely someone can figure out how to make these more durable without pricing them out of the market!

Neat Looking - Not Functional
Bought these for a goody bag. They really are cool looking. The only way to get the eraser out of the tube is to take off both ends, get a pointy object, and manually force the eraser out. Then you put the caps back on. I had to do this for 36 erasers before I put them in the goody bags. Can't click to advance eraser as it gets used. Cap falls off easily. Not worth the money.

decent- not excellent
I purchased stick erasers last school year from a different company, and they worked beautifully. This year, due to the overwhelming success of them, I purchased multiple sets of stick erasers from OTC. While they look the same, the quality is not as good. The erasers do not erase pencil as well as traditional erasers,a nd the bottom part (that keeps the eraser out of the tube) easily slips off unless it is JAMMED on tight, in which case it is difficult to remove to take more eraser out.
Bottom line- not bad, but definitely could be better

Does not work as expected
These erasers will erase, but they do not push up. You have to pull it up with your fingers. The tops and bottoms fall off constantly making them about pointless. Would definitely not buy again.
