4.0 Almost the perfect Bento - works for us.Comments about Product:
I bought this for my 4 & 6 year olds who were returning home with much of their lunch untouched. When I asked why, they said they didn't know the others items were in their lunchbox. I was using various baggies and individual containers - so they just eat whatever they opened first.
What I love about this box:
1) you can see everything at the same time.
2) it is absolutely leak-proof, but you have to make sure to close it properly.
3) fits in my kids lunch bags - we have an LL Bean and Hanna Andersson types. It is a snug fit, but my kids can close it easily.
4) easy to clean, great in dishwasher or by hand washing.
What I don't love:
1). Hard for my kids to close properly by themselves. They have to place both hands on top and press down hard, if they don't then any watery type foods (melon, salads w/dressing, etc) will leak on the return home trip. A bit of a learning curve, and even still, if they are in a rush they don't always remember to use the extra effort to seal it proper.
2). It fills the entire lunch box and it is impossible to include a typical round water bottle. I purchased the Vapur kids bottles and they fit perfectly. I fill them with water and freeze them, so they also work as an ice pack to keep the food cold. It is flatter, more like a Capri Sun style juice box, although taller. Just lay it on top of the Goodbyn and zip the lunchbox closed. Works great!
Overall, I recommend these, just be aware of the issues and they will work well.Reuseit team comment:
