Man. Man oh man. There is a beautiful Yikes! branded pencil sharpener on eBay right now. Though there are only 3 days left, there are no bids! The last thing I should be doing is bidding on it, as I don’t need a $10-quality pencil sharpener for $20 (or way more). But it would look great next to my collection of Yikes! pencils, wouldn’t it?
As I mentioned in my post about Yikes! pencils, the sharpeners seem to be pretty darn rare to find. The seller also has an auction for a couple wacky Yikes! branded erasers, still in their blister packaging. I actually don’t remember these from my youth, so I am loving the language from the back of the package that the seller posted:
Spend more time erasing than writing? Here’s just what you need—a true triple-whammy of primo mistake-munchers in color combinations from your worst nightmares.
Tow away your worst word wrecks with WRECK-TANGULAR erasers. Go ape for the shape of TRIANGULAR erasers. Get your hand on something that’s totally TWISTED.
Now all three are together in YIKES! Mondo-Combo Eraserama. But use with caution—with color clashes this loud, you could put an ear out.
I wonder how long these items have been sitting in the back of someone’s supply closet?
UPDATE: Ooh! It looks like there is another, alternately colored sharpener, too! This one looks like it must’ve been the option for girls, as there is more pink and purple involved.
