Writing braille can be challenging to someone who is new at it. Why not get them a tool that they will surely use? Braille is much easier to read if you use an eraser to remove unwanted dots from a cell instead of simply scratching out the entire cell.
APH offers two types of braille erasers:
Wooden Eraser -- 2 1/2 inches long
Catalog Number: 1-00270-00
Plastic Eraser -- One Broad, One Narrow End -- 5 inches long
Catalog Number: 1-00280-00
