9 Adorable Lunch Boxes Your Kids Will Love
It’s getting close to that time of year again. The sweet, sweet smell of brand-new crayons is mingling with the scent of finger paints, and your kiddo is getting ready for their first day of Pre-K. Along with their lovey, an extra pair of “big kid” underwear, and some brand new clothes, your kiddo needs to pack a lunchbox to take to school. Oh, but not just any ol’ lunchbox: Your preschooler needs one that’s super-cool. Lucky you — we’ve pulled together some of the best kids lunch boxes of the back-to-school season.
Unicorns are everywhere. Their poop is in our rainbow-tinged cookies and they’re somehow magically transformed from mythical beasties to play slime. This soft lunch bag isn’t just adorable (it’s got teeny rainbows as zipper-pulls): It’s also BPA- and phthalate-free *and* insulated enough to keep your preschooler’s treats chill.
Your preschooler can head to class with old-school style when you grab them a Care Bears lunchbox. This metal lunch box is a total throwback to your own childhood, and packs a nostalgic punch.
If your preschooler is like just about every other kiddo when it comes to keeping their foods separated (aka there’s absolutely no way they’re letting those carrots touch their sandwich), then this is the lunchbox for you. This Japanese-style design has compartments that are perfect for kids who can’t even contemplate foods that mingle. It’s also thermal-insulated, with *two* temperature zones. Yep, you can stash both hot and cold foods in this bento-riffic box.
The retro birds and butterflies design on this divided bento pick is cute, yet completely cool too. The clear material will let your kiddo see their food inside, and its small size makes it ideal for tiny tots. Plus it’s free from BPA and PVCs.
Aww! This soft lunch tote looks more like a plush pal than a reusable lunch sack. It’s like having an animal friend — minus the hassle of dealing with an actual animal. Your preschooler will get a kick out of the ladybug design.
You preschooler might not be fully into Star Wars just yet, but if you are, then you need to grab this bag. This lunch kit goes beyond being just a cute character box: It lights up and makes sounds. Yeah, we know, the Pre-K teacher will kind of hate you for sending a lunch box that makes more noise than the kids do. That’s okay — your kiddo will love it.
