The designs are cute but crumbs are a pain to clean out. The netting inside traps everything and crumbs get stuck inside the handle. Machine washing does not help take the crumbs out. The ones that can open up completely are much easier to clean on a daily basis.
I love this lunch bag. It is roomy and holds everything i want to pack in my daughters lunch. It keeps things cold throughout the day as well. I do not have to worry about her lunch getting warm. Being super cute is a bonus!
After buying and returning 3 lunch bags we finally found one that works really well for our 3.5yo daughter. It is spacious, easy to use, and super cute. Really love it! She picked out the style, and is able to carry it, even with her water bottle inside.
I love it! I've been working in schools for over 20 years and have seen my share of gross, smelly lunchboxes. Now that I have a 6 and 4 year old, I have become very picky about their lunchboxes. It MUST be machine- washable! This Dabbawalla lunch box is perfect- it is very large so it can fit everything. AND if something spills, just throw it in the wash. It is pricey but it is worth it. It washes well and my 4 year old daughter loves it. I'll be honest- she has asked me for a Disney character, tv character lunch box but I stuck to my guns and when she saw the Dabbawalla designs, she was thrilled. Go buy this lunchbox!
Bought the Dabbawalla Holy Cow lunch box for my 2 year old and she absolutely LOVES it. It's very durable and I love that I can wash it if it ever became dirty. Great product! :)
Love this bag...my son uses it for school snacks and even though its huge, he could easily carry a sandwich and a fruit and an 8oz water bottle with an ice pack with no problem. Thanks for a great product.
My lil man loves his Monkey Lunch Bag and I especially love that it's machine washable! I will be purchasing one for my 7 year old for summer camp!
my grandaughter loves it. She had a striped one and the kids teased her about it. She picked this one from your site and she loves it. It's the perfect size for lunch and snack and it fits in her back pack. Thanks
possibly too big for a toddler
My son loves his monkey lunch bag. I love that it is machine washable. Even though it costs a little more than others, I think it is worth it. It is well made, fits a good amount in it and it is easy to clean.
I have found in the past that if I can't machine wash a lunch box that it barely makes it through a whole school year. I am confident this one will.
We constantly get comments on how cute these bags are. We have one of each and really like the size and durability. The monkey has an extra external pocket too. Really large interior yet folds pretty thin as food has been eaten. Great product! A tad pricey but very high quality.
My son loves this lunch bag - easy to clean, durable, cute. It will last a long time. Couldn't be happier.
I ordered this lunch bag for myself as I am definitely young at heart! I was a little skeptical about the size of the lunch tote, but still couldn't resist ordering it. After receiving it in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised at the size of it. It fits everthing I need and expands a bit because of the fabric. When it arrived it smelled a little chemically, but I washed it and the smell immediately went away. I definitely recommend this product!
My daughter started kindergarten this year and picked the Free Range lunch bag. She loves the look of it and I love everything else about it. :) I have washed it twice now and have had to spot clean it on multiple occasions. That is the best part to me. A damp cloth and some dish water and voila! red sauce comes right out! It's got a larger mesh pocket on the inside for seperating items and a smaller one on the inside too for an ice pack, etc. At first I felt a little foolish because it seems like so much to pay for a child's lunch box.....and she may not like it come next year.....but the ease of use and quality of the product have made up for it!
My son loves his monkey lunch bag and it keeps his meals and drinks fresh and cool. I just hope we don't lose it!!!
These bags are adorable. They are roomy enough for the bento boxes we ordered, plus a sippy cup or small thermos, or a piece of fruit. They have a little mesh pocket for an ice pack, and they stay pretty cold throughout the day. I actually got compliments on them from my boys' teacher - they thought these bags were so cute.
My son loves the big features and overall cuteness of this one. I love the internal mesh pocket and that it is machine washable and that it is an adorable little monkey for my little monkey to carry
Love the bags! My kids (2yrs and 4 yrs) fight over which one they want to take each morning...then they are very possessive and protective of their bag. We bought 3 to cover us when one is in the wash. Have received many compliments on them from other moms and dads. Definitely recommend to others. I have even passed on my discount coupon for other friends to purchase their own.
Love the designs. My 2 kids fight over them. A little worried about some of the detailed flaps pulling off...but so far not an issue with my 2 and 4 yr old. Holds a lot! Like the inside mesh to separate some stuff.
Super cute Monkey design -- a hit with the elementary school kids! Very durable with netting inside to hold a drink and another pocket to hold napkins, utensils, etc. Great size for a small water bottle, sandwiches, small containers of food. Love the handle -- easy for my son to grab and go. I'm thinking of getting one for my lunches! Customer service was very nice. Product arrived fairly quickly.
Absolutely love the Dabbawalla Lunch Bag! I was originally skeptical at first as it is not the traditional lunch bag we all grew up with and are used to material wise. However, I am thankful I took a chance. My only regret is I did not order two! My son who is 18 months recently started daycare. I wanted his lunch bag to be special and something that he liked and thought of home when he used it at lunch time. We ordered the Holy Cow as he loves Cows. Great construction of the bag and great size. I can fit a ton of items in there!
This lunch bag is everything I hoped for and more! Let me explain....I was a little skeptical that this bag would not keep my sons lunch cold all day at school. I was also concerned about the size being too big. The price, being PVC & lead free, plus the cute modern design made me give the bag a try. My son loves his lunch bag! It keeps his lunch cold all day for 8 plus hours....his ice pack comes home still part frozen! His old "insulated" lunch box from Target never kept his lunch cold all day. His teachers all rave about it too. The design makes it stand apart from all the other kids lunch boxes so his is always easy to find. The size is maybe slightly larger than a tradition lunch box but my son who is 3 carries it with no problems at all. It can be folded/rolled up for compact storage too.
I ordered two bags - they are cute. But one of my bags arrived with a label that says it is Neoprene. This website says it is Ariaprene, which is supposedly better environmentally speaking. I ordered it thinking it is not neoprene. Very disappointing. Would I recommend it to a friend - yes and no. Yes, it is cute. But be aware that what you get may not be what they say it is made out of.
