I'm delighted that Daily Kits gives me the opportunity to review their laptop lunches. I have stopped making charaben (Character Bento) for him because this little man decides that he has grown up at aged 7 years old and does not want any cute stuff on his bento boxes. Therefore, his lunches are simply assembling of food in the lunch boxes or he eats from his plate most of the time without elaborated style. But once in a while, I will surprised him with a charaben. I'm glad the Mr Nice Guy in him does not mind at all and can be quite a critic over my creations. The laptop lunches comes in many colours and the right time! I was allocated the 'Jubilee' range. It is a pretty purple box and I'm pleased to add it to my collections that are unsightly stashed in my kitchen drawers.
We are given a bento lunch box (Jubilee), bento sleeve (black) and an ice gel (colourful stripes). My boy squealed with excitement when the delivery came. With such a bright and appealing colour, I decide to keep it simple, no bento accessories for the lunch box. As you can see from the lunches I prepared below, the colour contrast between the food and the containers does make it stand out. On top of which :-
- They are dishwasher safe.
- They are BPA free, non-toxic and do not contain phthalates or lead.
- The containers with lids are great for liquid food and sauces/dippers for salads.
- The individual containers are microwaveable except for the lids.
- It is easy for my Primary schooling boy to open and close effortlessly.
- Spill proof is another plus point.
