say hello to Goodbyn!

I have been waiting on pins and needles for this very special lunchbox to arrive!

Ta-da!
Goodbyn - it came!

Are you excited?
Maybe?
Not yet?
Give me a minute to tell you more about it.

They are currently available in 4 colors - red/orange (mine!), blue, green and pink!

They come with over 275 stickers to let you (or your child) totally customize it for a one-of-a-kind, very unique, super rad lunchbox.
This is where the Goodbyn can really come to life!

Goodbyn - it's alive!

My oldest son suggested we give it a name. We decided on Byndi. "Like Bindi, the Jungle Girl and Goodbyn tied together!" he said. Sounded good to me! :)

Both my boys wanted to take it to school today, but I told them I needed to wash it first. Um, yes, I did need to wash it, but really - I wanted to play with it some more before they carried it off (not to mention, the issue of WHICH of them would have the first honor of using it!).
As it turns out my 2-year-old asked to use "the Byndi monster box" for her lunch at home today. It was great!

Goodbyn - yummy!

She had orange wedges, Trader Joe's corn puff things (like Pirate's Booty), applesauce with sprinkles, a few animal crackers (and not those gosh forsaken Pooh ones!), and leftover pepperoni pizza.

The Goodbyn comes with a matching drink bottle - which you can see here, fits perfectly in the center spot. My girl had ice water in it. The Goodbyn is designed to not need anything between it and the food - hence the applesauce poured straight into a side compartment. The lid fits so securely that nothing drips out of any of the areas. I did test this out, my girl toted the lunchbox around the house, and lo and behold, the applesauce did not stray! The sprinkles got all mixed in, of course, but there was no soggy corn puffs either. :)

This lunchbox is VERY roomy. I'm actually looking forward to using it myself, as I think that big half-circle compartment will be perfect for salads! The bottom square compartment could easily hold a full sized sandwich too.

One of my favorite things about this lunchbox...the entire thing can be stuck in the dishwasher - bottom rack too! Okay, that is convienent, but really my FAVORITE thing about it is that it's made in the USA (even the stickers!), totally BPA free and fully recyclable.

I'm giving the Goodbyn two thumbs-up. :)

Jennifer, I haven't come across a lunchbox that can accomodate the Goodbyn. I suppose you could probably find a messenger bag to carry it. It fits in our (large) softsided cooler bag that we use for family outings - but that thing is too big for a kid to carry to school.
