PlanetBox Shuttle Review

PlanetBox generously sent us their newly launched lunchbox: The Shuttle! I was excited to try out the new size and see how this lunchbox works for us!

Since PlanetBox sent us the adorable Aliens Shuttle with matching magnets and carrying bag I wanted to make the boys a lunch to match! I packed our Shuttle with:
  • plain yogurt sky topped with apple stars
  • kiwi slices and cherries
  • and a sky sandwich with Swiss cheese moon and stars details
Simple and fun!

We also packed some left overs - which I want to do more this upcoming school year - and this Shuttle lunch contains:
  • a salad topped with yellow pepper stars, a yellow pepper space ship with carrot details and a few star shaped croutons
  • a piece of chicken
  • Spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce and
  • the Tall Dipper containing dressing for the salad.

And now to my review:

I immediately loved the quality of this box! Made out of stainless steel the lunchbox feels sturdy without being heavy and the overall quality seems superior to other boxes we have tried! Plus, how cute are those adorable magnets (which are optional and many other designs are available HERE).
Another important point for me: The lunchbox is dishwasher safe! A big plus for me since I pack 6 lunches a day and being able to just put all lunchboxes in the dishwasher at night makes clean up so easy! [I have to say here that you have to remember to remove the magnets before putting the lunchbox in the dishwasher! The magnets can be wiped clean but are not recommended for the dishwasher. Just stick on the fridge while the lunchbox is being washed ;)]

The Shuttle comes with the Tall Dipper for sauces and dips and you can purchase the basic Shuttle with the Tall Dipper (without magnets) for $34.95 which makes the Shuttle a very affordable lunchbox of the PlanetBox family!

For only $5 more you can purchase a carry bag and matching magnets and I have to say I would highly recommend both! How cute is this carry bag! The carry bag is made well and keeps the lunch cold during the morning! There is very little room however for an ice pack so using the PlanetBox cold kit or an ice pack sheet will work best!

Both the magnets and carry bag are wipe clean/ hand wash only but well worth their money. My younger kids loved the magnets and they really add a lot of character to the lunchbox! A great way to distinguish between lunchboxes if you have more then one. The carry bag is made well and since I love having sets worth the extra money.

Overall, we really love the PlanetBox Shuttle and look forward to using it often!

  1. Beautiful meals! I love how they coordinate with the box and fantastic sandwich!

  2. I love the lunches, super cute and mouth watering!

  3. I adore these spacey bentos! Thanks for linking to Friends Share: UFO Lunches!

  4. Awesome review! I am loving the shuttle :D

  5. Is there a compartment for drinks?

    1. Hi there, no there is no compartment for drinks and no room in the cooler for one. My kids carry big water bottles so they are used to carrying their drink and lunch separately. Hope that helps!

  6. Would cut up fruit in one compartment potentially make a sandwich in the other compartment soggy?
