With the summer season approaching I have been thankful for the Purple Lunch Box Kit that Becky & Lolo recently sent us to review. Whilst Roo and Tigger always have a packed lunch whilst they are at school it is the summer term that I worry more about their lunch boxes as they are not refrigerated during the day.
Purple Lunch Box Kit contains:
- Insulated cooler bag
- 1.0L RealSeal™ lunchbox
- 650ml RealSeal™ sandwich box
- 300ml RealSeal™ snackbox
- Knife, fork, spoon set
Designed and manufactured by Decor, a leading Australian provider of homewares that are functional, affordable and made to last. From colourful lunch sets to small air tight pots for snacks, Decor’s lunch boxes can be combined with other items to pack neatly into a cooler bag without the need for additional packing. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Decor has manufactured and distributed homeware products since 1958.
Insulated cooler bag
The perfectly purple insulated cooler bag included with in the lunch set is very well made. Opening it for the first time you find one of the best features of the cooler bag which is the ability to store it flat packed. There are two straps with hook ‘n’ loop fastenings that secure the cooler bag flat when not in use making storing much easier, these straps are then fastened under the cooler bag lid when the bag is in use.
The cooler bag is large enough to accommodate the three RealSeal™ boxes and icewall included within the lunch set. There is a pocket on the front of the cooler bag which you could store either the cutlery or a couple of napkins.
The only downside to the cooler bag for me is that there is no dedicated space to place a name tag which if the cooler bag is being used for school or even work could be a little bit of an issues. The zip fastening does have a large loops so I will be adding a personalised keyring to solve this issue.
With three different sized RealSeal™ boxes included within the lunch set it really makes it even easier to take the foods you want without each one spoiling by cramming your food into one big box.
Each of the RealSeal™ boxes include an airtight seal, for an airtight seal simply apply the lid, release the air by opening the vent and press the vent closed and your food will stay lovely and fresh. To removed the lid and enjoy your food simply click the vent open to release the airtight seal.
Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
When I was offered the opportunity to receive the Purple Lunch Box Kit via Becky & Lolo I had great intentions of starting Bento food styling for Roo’s school lunches, however after seeing just how fresh it keeps food and how I could use the different size boxes I have to confess to keeping the lunch box set for myself (bad mummy).
As I am currently following the Slimming World lifestyle the ability to prepare different foods which I can take to work, on picnics or even family events has been great. Fruit, vegetables and salads have stayed as fresh as when I placed the food in the the boxes and the icewall really helps to keep it all chilled when you aren’t able to transfer the cooler bag to a fridge.
Priced at just £19.00 for the complete set I personally think that this is great value for money and with a range of other RealSeal™ boxes available from Becky & Lolo you should hopefully be able to find the boxes that will make your food storage fresher and easier.
Disclosure: I received a Purple Lunch Box Kit FOC for the purpose of review.
