Laptop Lunches Review & Giveaway!


Laptop Lunches send us a Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware box to review and we immediately loved the versatility of the lunchbox!


The lunchbox comes with two open containers and three water-tight containers with lid. It has a built-in compartment for utensils and a napkin.

We packed lunch in our Laptop Lunches lunchbox all week, so you can see for yourself how versatile and fun the box is:

Monday: 


We packed a Greek salad with lettuce, shaved cucumbers, feta cheese, olives and grape tomatoes, a half a pear, a chicken sandwich on swirl bread, Greek salad dressing in the mini container and some more cucumbers.

Tuesday:



We packed Goldfish and Naturebox Cinnamon Almonds, grapes, a tangerine, applesauce and a pepperoni sandwich with spinach.

Wednesday:



Very similar to Tuesday's lunch. We packed popcorn and Naturebox Almonds, grapes and tangerine pieces, strawberry yogurt with mini chocolate chips and two chocolate spread Spider-Man sandwiches.

Thursday:



And today we packed a liverwurst sandwich, kiwi, plain yogurt, mini chocolate chips for the yogurt, popcorn and a cereal bar.


Pros:

  • holds enough food for all ages
  • can be colorful and playful or like ours plain and more suited for an adult or older child
  • the three water-tight containers allow for yogurt, applesauce, dressing, dip and other foods that could spill to be packed regularly for lunch
  • the built-in compartment is great for holding napkins and utensils or a cereal bar
  • included mini container is great for salad dressing, dips and treats
  • dishwasher and microwave safe
  • BPA, PVC and Lead free
  • you can add Bento Buddies to widen the variety of containers and color options and Bento Buddies includes a large container for salads or left over dinners
  • containers stack for easy storage


Things to consider:
  • even though all the containers are dishwasher safe sometimes the containers can warp depending on your dishwasher heat setting. It happened to us:

But the great people at customer service told me that there is an easy fix! Just heat up the warped container again with hot water and insert the other containers of similar size and let cool over night.

It worked for us and was an easy fix!

Overall, we really love our Laptop Lunches lunchbox and it is Mamabelly Kid Approved! Everyone from my first grader to my soon-to-be middle schooler loved the lunchbox!

  15. He is so picky... I don't know if any of these fancy menus would work for him. I would pack finger foods that I know he'll eat - apples, crackers, cheese, and maybe applesauce in the dip container!

  20. I would pack bento snacks or a "back to basics bento" because those are things my sons (2 & 4 years old) would actually eat.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Angel Hair Pasta with Sauteed Vegetables looks delicious!!! It has sautéed chick peas, onions, swiss chard, kalamata olives and small yellow tomatoes which look like a great combination. I'm not a huge fan of pop corn; But it seems like a great combination with the cantaloupe. It seems more of an adult meal to me.
    The Early Spring Salad looks pretty fancy. The tuna salad and sliced kiwi caught my eye. And I like mixing my tuna salad with some veggies. Definitely a fave.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would pack pasta primavera for my daughter, she likes noodles and veggies (well, sometimes) and it would be something different them her normal lunches.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think my 4 - soon to be 5 year old - twins would like the cheese tasting bento or the "snack" bento the best. Since lunch is so rushed at school, it is nice that they could just open them up and start eating without dealing with standing in line to heat it up, opening little packages, etc. All they would need would be their fingers :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. The Early Spring Salad looks delicious. I love mixing my tuna salad with different veggies. And kiwi is one of my favorite fruits. I think it's super cute how there's a container for the salad dressing.
    Angel Hair Pasta with Sauteed Vegetables looks so good! Specially with the chick peas and sautéed onions, swiss chard, kalamata olives and small yellow tomatoes. What an awesome combo! A little fruit here and a snack there. Cheese if needed.
    Both meals are a fave.

    I would definitely pack a Breakfast Bento 2.0 as my son loves to eat breakfast in his lunch! I would also love the 5 minute bento as it takes no time at all to put together on a busy morning. My kids love to eat snacks and not so much an entire meal so this would not nearly be so intimidating. Thanks for the chance to win!
