trying the Goodbyn Bynto lunch box on for size

I've had this baby Goodbyn box, the Bynto, for a couple weeks (I ordered it from Amazon), but haven't had the time to do a really good review post of it yet.  But, I can say that we like it a lot!  Ethan's used it for school lunch several times and it's a big hit. The Bynto and the new Lego bento box are tied for Ethan's affections at the moment!

This lunch in the Bynto consists of:
- turkey rolls
- pear wedges
- cereal bar
- crackers

The turkey rolls are secured on cute bento picks, and the pear slices are contained in a jumbo silicone muffin cup. I LOVE those jumbo muffin cups, but their size prevents them from being used in most of my bento boxes. I am so happy that they work perfectly in the new Bynto. :)


I'm hoping to get to a thorough review post of the box soon, comparing it to it's big brother box, the Goodbyn.  But I can say this: it's much smaller, it fits in a standard lunchbox, and the lid is easier to put on & take off (much!).  I'm trying to think hard to come up with something I don't like about it. But the truth is, I can't. And I'm trying to talk myself out of ordering another one. I do have four kids after all....

Would this bynto fit inside an easylunchbox cooler?

We LOVE our Bynto. I have a tumblr page here for it: (note, I take the photos with my cell, so its not high quality photography ha!) http://opatslunch.tumblr.com/
I do NOT use the provided water bottle, and instead use the middle section for food, and stick our water bottle in outside pocket in his lunch bag. Gives much more space for a big eater/adult portions. I have a few other boxes but dont use anything but the Bynto, I love it too much!

We've done that too - using the middle section for food. It really makes the box so versatile!

Wow, I haven't seen these before. I'm excited! My lego boxes came today, but my boys only have one more day of school before the holiday break...and now I want to order a Bynto, too!

That is so cute and the bynto is a good size for my small eater!!
Does it fit into a lunchbag?
Thanks for sharing :)

We've been using the Bynto this school year, but we all (kids and myself) have such a hard time getting the lid to stay on or getting the whole thing to lock. We can get the bottom or the top, but never both in one smooth motion. It's good to know its on there, but kind of aggravating especially for my daughter. Any suggestions?
