In classrooms the world over, lunchboxes, like pencil cases are an outlet for self expression. If you’re lumped with a plain one, you decorate it with stickers. If you’ve got one that you’ve outgrown, you decorate it with stickers. Case in point, my eldest son ‘redesigned’ his lunchbox a few weeks ago with Carlton Football Club stickers – the Cars Movie design that he had so carefully chosen (and so desperately wanted) a year ago is “for little kids Mum”.
So I figure if you start with a lunchbox that comes with stickers, you’re on a winner! The new Goodbyn lunchbox will certainly have kid appeal. It looks like a friendly little monster, it’s easy to open and it comes with three sheets of kooky stickers that kids can use to personalise it.
There are lots of pluses for parents as well: the separate compartments are guaranteed to keep the fruit salad out of the crackers, and it does away with the need for packaging and cling wrap; the lunch box is dishwasher safe; and it’s ultimately fully recyclable.
Goodbyn lunch boxes come in a choice of four colours and are US$34.95 each. Get yours from Oliebollen, who will ship to Australia.
