Description
The sticks are attached to the hands with universal straps. The stick consists of a pencil of the correct length with a top from an overhead marker.

Users comments
The cap is equipped with an eraser that is just the right hardness, friction and size. Susanne has also tested the eraser end of an ordinary pencil, but it doesn’t last very long.
