11 Hello Kitty Lunch Time

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

It's getting to be that time of year again.  Only a few weeks left of summer vacation and then my child goes back to school.  She'll have the same schedule as last year, 3 full days a week, so there are lots of bentos in store!  Of course, being the dedicated shopper that I am, I'm always on the lookout for school items, especially lunch related.

The other day we were at the mall trying to get someone to look at my iPhone 4 at the Apple store. (Ha!  Yeah right, did you know you need an appointment at that place if you want an employee to even say hello to you?)  After we left, we passed a Sanrio store called Domkimeki Japan, and I Ella couldn't resist going in to see all the new Hello Kitty items.  I've said since last year when I picked up this lunch box from another Sanrio store that if I ever saw another (even the exact same one!) I'd snap it up, because it's the BEST lunch box/bag design ever.  Seriously.  Well, my dreams came true and I found the exact same design, except it's got a different HK motif.  It even comes with a plastic lunch container inside, like the other.  I cannot express how much I love this bag (I swear I'm not the one actually using it.)  The barrel top unzips and is the perfect size and shape for an aluminum bottle like the .3L size Sigg (and we have a Hello Kitty one, imagine that.)


The main compartment has a deep, rectangular area which is perfect for stacking bento boxes - upright, so no spillage!  It's got a zippered mesh area that's underneath the top barrel which is great for storing utensils, or even a cold pack.  Zippered side and front pouches give it plenty of storage, and lots of good insulation.  So yeah, I love it.  Like last year, I'll be removing the long strap so E can carry it with the top handle.  I think the only thing that's different besides the motif is that the side pockets have adjustable straps, which I suppose can be very useful.

These pictures are terrible, but just to show you.

Thanks for posting the review and the online shop to buy it!!!

Any tips for buying the shaped cutters? I am new to this and have none. I'd appreciate any advice. My daughter will start her first year of eating at school this fall. :) I found some Klip it! containers at Old Navy (yeah I was surprised!).

Hi there! I've found cutters at Super H Mart, but also on eBay if you can't find them locally. They will be more expensive if you buy them online, but if you can, try to look at international grocery stores first.

My daughter has to get a new lunch box each school year.(she's going into high school this year) I wanted to get her one that I saw at home goods in the beginig of summer, but she wasn't ready to think about it then! I like how handy this one is. I also like it when they come with a container.

I had a Hello Kitty lunch box when I was little and loved it to death. I still have it actually, and that's over fifteen years ago. They're the best!

Thanks for the page! Once we saw this in a store in Westside Pavilion Mall in Los Angeles, but we did not buy it then! And when saw other styles, we realized that how great of a design it was and we went back to them couple weeks later and they sold them all and we could not find it again anywhere and I just did a google image search and found your blog with its images and ordered it online! Thanks for your website help! My kindergirl started her school today with her old lunch box!!!

Hi Penny, if you check out my Facebook page I posted a link to the newest bag on sale a few days ago. It's a slightly different design, but equally useable!
