New bento box! Toadally adorable bento box!!
This is (one of) our new bento boxes. I might have gone on a bit of a bento-shopping bender lately. Maybe. Just Maybe.
I have been pining for this little two-tier bento box for ages! I was unsure about the size and quality of it, so I've continued to hem and haw over it for the better part of a year. After seeing the price drop on it quite a bit on Amazon I started to waffle and when my friend Wendy did a post about getting the panda version I totally crumbled like a cookie! (although I just now realized when hunting up that link that hers is actually a little different than mine...I didn't even realize!).
Whether this be a big snack or a small lunch, it was all for Ethan, my 8-year-old.
The bottom level is a little deeper and a smidge bigger than the top level. In the bottom tier he had: sunflower kernels, a Babybell cheese, a few little turkey rolls, carrots, olives. The sunflower kernels are in a little disposable cup that came from a pizzeria full of parmesan. I just washed it out and added it to my own lunch supplies. It may not last long, but I'll reuse it as much as I can while I can! The little snap-on lid fits on it inside this bento box too. :)
The top level was perfect for a little fruit salad of strawberries and kiwi fruit.
The top level comes with a nice sealing lid to keep wet things from making a mess!
The top tier fits nicely on the bottom tier, and then the froggy face lid closes it up.
A bento "belt" is an elastic band that keeps everything securely together.
I just noticed there is also a piggie version too. Oh mercy me!
