So I’m probably not telling you anything new, but I’m obsessed with the Yumbox. So when Megan from Yumbox Australia (minihippo) sent me two yumbox mini snacks to try out, I was over the moon. She had hinted they were coming a while before that…and the next thing I knew they were in my hands! You can read my Yumbox Minisnack review, then decide if you
want NEED one!
If you’re wondering what the big deal is, the yumbox is leakproof and compartmentalised and perfect for little lunches. The minisnack operates on the same principles, it is leakproof from compartment to compartment, the lid seals completely so it’s leak proof and it has 3 compartments, perfect for laying out the perfect recess snack. There’s no doubt that Yumbox are extraordinarily good at what they do, and the minisnack is no exception to that.
It’s easy to open, holds 1.5 cups of food and is tough. It’s deeper than the unusal yumbox and does contain a surprising amount of snack! Our favourite way to use it is to have fruit on one side and crackers and cheese or muffins on the other, or cookies, or anything really. The small treat section for us either contains blueberries or carrot sticks or sultanas, or something else just as yummy. They have the usual yumbox design, with the removeable tray and clip on the front.
You also need to know this: if you aren’t quite in the yumbox market yet- i.e. your kids aren’t having lunches out and about or you’re just feeding a toddler, you will be glad to hear that even yoghurt in this doesn’t spill in your handbag!
What else do you need to know? Well, they are being released in 3 colours, pink, blue and green and are going to retail at $26.95 each.
They’ve just opened preorders for these in Australia, but I have two…brand new ones to give away thanks to Mini hippo Australia. So if you’re lucky, you can enter below and win one, meaning that you’ll be one of the first people in Oz to have them!
