The Almost Perfect Lunchbox for Us

Pros: Quality Materials, No leaking, Great size for kids, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Kids lunch
I really, really like these lunch boxes. I bought two; one for my son, one for my daughter. Both are in grade school. I've been packing their lunches for a couple of years and really hated all the different containers, the leaking drink bottles, and hard to open leak-proof containers. This lunch box addresses most of my problems and nearly fixes them.

First, my kids love these lunch boxes... it actually seems to make eating their lunches more fun for them. The divided container is my favorite because it forces variety. The divided container is also where my only complaint is. The different compartments are not leak-proof from the inside. So, you can only use dry food in them. I'm currently experimenting with Press 'n' Seal to see if I can get keep watery things (like applesauce) to stay put in their compartment. I think it's working.
The other food container isn't divided. I use it for a sandwich. I cut the sandwiches in half or fourths to fit them in. No biggie, since I always cut sandwiches anyway.

I love how easy these containers are to open. Most leak-proof containers are hard for my kids to open and close. These containers solve the problem... and I must stay they are fun to open and close. :)

I like the size of the drink bottle. At one and half cups, it's perfect. (It's really hard to find water bottles that aren't less than 2 cups.) It washes easily since there aren't any sippy spouts or anything. It's simple and I love it. I guess if you child has a hard time drinking from a water bottle, this might not be a good choice for them, but it works great for us.

All three containers fit nicely in the lunch box and in my kids' backpacks. Other lunchboxes they have had have been so bulky.

This set does come with neat chopsticks, but since my kids don't use those, I just pack a spoon or fork and a napkin in the inner pocket on the lunchbox's lid.

This lunchbox works much better than anything else we've used so far.
