Back to School: Custom Lunch boxes for kids

Can you believe August is already halfway through? School will be starting soon in September, and back to school shoppers are hitting the stores to prepare their kids with awesome school supplies. Back when I was a kid we had these boring fabric lunch bags that weren't very spill proof, so if your juice box got punctured in your bag somehow or your plastic baggie wasn't closed well enough, food and juice was spilt all over your lunchbox - making everything sticky and sometimes leaking on to books & homework! Eww! So when I saw that I can design super sleek lunch boxes on Zazzle, I got really excited. The lunch boxes on Zazzle are really neat and 100% customizable, created by Yubo in San Ramon, California. Here is what it looks like:

Look at how cute they are! This one is featuring my new purple geometric pattern,
as well as a personalized monogram with a name. If your name is going to have to be on your lunch box,
it might as well be pretty! ;)

Not only are these incredibly cute, they are 100% dishwasher safe (easy to clean, so you will never have yucky, sticky, crumb filled lunch bags again!) and also BPA-free, phthalate-free, lead-free & eco-friendly. These come with containers to hold your food and different containers can be purchased that fit perfectly within this lunch box. The default one at Zazzle comes with a sandwich container and two small containers, but you can choose to add on a pack of two small containers or a pack of two medium containers. It also comes with a perfect fit ice pack, to keep your food cold throughout the day. On top of all that, you can adjust the handle to be vertical or horizontal! What I like best however, is that you can change out the faceplate of these lunch boxes. This is such a good idea for kids especially, who get tired of the same old lunch box theme and want something new from time to time. It is much better than buying a new lunchbox every season! Extra faceplate inserts can also be purchased through Zazzle. Here is a look at what the lunch box looks like disassembled:

The front and back face plates of the lunch box are fully printed with designs and can be easily swapped out. When you are creating your Yubo lunch box through Zazzle, you can personalize the designs yourself by adding additional pictures & graphics and also by choosing the colour of the outer casing! You can choose from blue, green orange, pink, purple, and grey, so there are plenty of colours to match your design.
