Age range: 2.5-8 (depending on appetite and whether the child takes a separate fruit break)
Where to buy: Little Bento World
Best for: Kids who like a cut up sandwich, can also fit rice paper rolls, sushi etc and lots of fruit.
For all other info, head back to the review table.
There are two Boon lunchboxes, the cargo and the trunk. Both are really similar in design and construction and vary only in the way they can be packed.
Although compartmentalised, these lunchboxes are not leakproof. The lids sit flush and are tight on the boxes, which means food won’t transfer from one compartment to the next, but juices will. This is not a wet foods lunchbox.
I wash ours in the dishwasher, obviously separating the lid from the base. It cleans up just like new every time and has not caused any troubles (top shelf is recommended).
The design of the cargo shows a snail on the outside (artistic, not cutesy) and could go be used for longer by kids because of this.
This is a cheaper lunchbox to ease into bento style lunches with. It allows you to make a lunch look really appealing with very little effort. It holds more food than a yumbox.
Cons: You can’t fit an uncut sandwich in it and it’s not leakproof. Master 3 has been using one of these all year and I’m surprised to find he can’t open it. Miss 5 also struggled, and they are the age range this lunchbox is aimed at. I struggled with cooler bags for these, so it’s good to know that Little Bento World now have cooler bags that fit them!

I was sent this lunchbox to review, but was not paid to complete the review. All of the opinions are mine.
