I was so excited about this school year (being my sons first year in Elementary School) that I went and bought him a new lunchbox that hooks onto his backpack. We bought it months ago and surprised him with it the week before school started. I have been very curious about the bento box systems that are on the market these days too. I thought I had found a solution to make his traditional lunchbox a bento box. Laptop Lunches sells their inside containers individually without the outer box (even with the warning that they shouldn’t be used without the outer box). I carefully measured my sons lunchbox and the inside containers would fit perfectly. So I ordered 2 sets (so we always have one clean) and I just opened the box. I’m so disappointed!!! The kits only have one lid for four containers. I guess the way the actual system works the outer box acts as a lid for the others. And…you can’t even order individual lids. On their website they explain why the no lids works for them…most people only pack one wet item in their lunch. While that may be true what about items that shift when you turn the lunchbox on it’s side?? Or what about items with strong odors or fruits that may be juicy? I’m really eco-bummed that this isn’t going to work out the way I was hoping. I need to really think about this and decide whether to keep it or send it back…but then I’m also stuck paying for additional shipping…total BUMMER!
