Despite the fact that Small Child probably has enough lunchboxes to last him to the end of his school days and beyond, I was completely unable to resist this little chap when I spotted him on a trip to IKEA last week. I think that it is probably the cutest lunchbox in our collection, and Small Child loves him! If it wasn't for the fact that he grew out of tippy cups years ago, I would probably have bought the super cute matching cups too!
Of course we had to use the lunchbox the very next day, and I found that it was the perfect size for a simple houmous 'dippy' lunch. In this lunch Small Child had a pot of organic homous, a toasted wholemeal pitta bread cut into slices, chunks of cucumber and raw carrot sticks, popped into silicone cupcake cases to keep them from making the pitta bread soggy. He also had some red grapes on mini heart skewers, and a couple of strawberries to finish off. I popped a lid on the houmous & also added a small plastic knife to help Small Child spread houmous on his pitta bread.
Here is the lunchbox closed and ready to go. As you can see, the ears are actually two flaps which swing down to clip the box closed. Too cute for words!
