Thermapod Mini Kids Lunchbox Review and Giveaway



I've  been on the lookout for a new way to pack my kids' lunches. The excessive use of plastic bags to hold their sandwiches and snacks has been driving me crazy. I was looking for something that was waste-free, easy to pack and to keep clean. I was also looking for something that even my three year old could open easily. I was lucky enough to come across the Thermapod Mini Kids Lunchbox and the generous folks at Thermapod sent me the yellow one (pictured below) to review.


What exactly is the Thermapod Mini?

The Thermapod Mini is an environmentally friendly, super tough and durable lunchbox that is also convenient, reduces waste, as well as saves time and money.

This lunchbox has a very sleek, modern design and comes in a variety of colors! It is made of durable BPA free plastic that is dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe. Talk about versatile! The interior has two compartments - a larger one that is the perfect size for sandwiches and smaller one for holding chips, vegetables, fruit or your favorite side item of choice. My favorite part... the *hidden* cutlery compartment  which holds a fork, spoon, knife and chopsticks too! The included cutlery is built to last allowing you to re-use it over and over again! 



Some additional features: The interior lunchbox tray can be removed for easy cleaning; the seal on top makes it leak proof; it also keep warm food warm and cold food cold a little longer. 

Check out the Thermapod commercial to learn a little more...

So What Would I Change?
I don't think it's  a change, but a possible addition. Although I think it's a fabulous and environmentally friendly product, I would love if there was an option to swap out different size compartments. That's it, that's all. Love it otherwise!

Buy It: The Thermapod Mini Lunchbox is available HERE for purchase for $24.95 on their website. 

Win It: One lucky ace and friends reader will win a Thermapod Mini Lunchbox of their very own! Color selection is the winner's choice (and of course, dependent on availability).
