In order for the puzzle parts to fit perfectly, first the moulds must be precision made, quality of the moulds determines everything came out of these moulds. That is why each mould costs approx. one million yen in Japan, to make a counterfeit eraser in China, the mould cost is about 1/1000 of the Japan's cost, the problem is parts don't fit, erasers fall apart by themselves, "Automatic Take-apart Chinese Erasers."

The duck has complicated structures inside the cute outside, I think sometimes we forget we are only making erasers, just toys, not airplanes or spaceships. This is a good example of BEAUTY IS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP, the design is not just about the outside or how cute it is, substantial thoughts and work were devoted to the internal structure of this duck, something few people will see or notice, and have no effect nor needed for the outside beauty, it is all about perfection and drive for excellence, steps beyond what is required and what we thought we could achieve. Whther no one ever notice it nor appreciate it is not relevant.

The material used to make Japanese erasers is critical, because compared with inferior Chinese counterfeit erasers' material; the Japanese material is lighter weight, denser, softer and flexible. Not only highest quality material cost a lot more, it is not available outside Japan.  Our material is not brittle, more flexible and softer so they fit tightly, sort of hugging each others, they can be taken apart repeatedly.

38046 Koala Bear eraser puzzle parts
ERASER-ANIMAL/38048_iwako_hedgehog_eraser_parts.JPG
Precision Japan made parts fit perfectly
Technically speaking, Iwako's Japanese puzzle eraser reached a new high in with the introduction of the Panda Vol.2 in 2010 and 2011 Koala Japanese erasers.  The breakthrough is in the structure of an eraser, the eyes and nose are not inserted, but built inside the head as a skull, the head itself is 2-piece of eraser skins wrap over the internal head/skull.  This is followed by the cat eraser in May 2011, the eyes and nose are built into the internal head part.  Technically this is very challenging and expensive, because the parts must be extremley precision made to fit perfectly, just like hi-tech smartphones or airplane parts, everything must be built to the same level of advanced techincal skills.
