Disney Brave Lunch Bag
Advantages: Lovely design, Nice size, Good quality, Insulated
Disadvantages: Marks/stains show up on outside material, Showing slight signs of wear & tear after 6 months
Last year my daughter and I went to the cinema to see the Disney Pixar film 'Brave' and my daughter has been hooked on the film ever since! Whilst browsing in The Disney Store last summer holidays we came across a Brave lunch bag. We decided to buy it, along with a matching Brave flask (sold separately).
This particular lunch bag is a Disney Store Exclusive and can only be brought from The Disney Store. It cost £10.00 which I think is a pretty reasonable price.
The lunch bag has a lovely design and is sure to please all Brave fans. It's bright, pretty and features Merida on the front (the princess/main character from the film), along with her triplet brothers (transformed in to cute bear cubs) and the word 'Brave' in glittery gold writing (there is also a tiny amount of gold glitter on Merida's dress).
The whole picture/front of the bag is completely waterproof and can be wiped clean. The top, bottom, sides and back of the bag is made from a non-waterproof material (the bag is also edged with gold 'piping' around the front and back). This non-waterproof material is nicely decorated with a pink/blue/green tartan print but shows up marks and stains quite easily. My daughter has a habit of spilling drinks and splatting yoghurts over her lunch bag - it would be easier to manage if the whole bag was made from a waterproof material. The bag doesn't state if it can be machine washed, however I have had to machine wash it a couple of times and it seems fine afterwards (and takes no time to dry out) - back to perfect condition.
The bag has a long blue shoulder strap which is useful for my daughter (and me!) to carry the bag around with her. The strap can easily be adjusted to suit children of any age/size. It also has a handy grab handle on the top. There is a pocket on the back with plastic over the front, this is where you can write your childs name (and class) in case the bag goes missing or there happens to be 2 of them in class!
The lunch bag is a good size and there's plenty of room inside for me to fit everything inside that my daughter needs for school lunches each day (sandwiches, drink, yoghurts, fruit, snacks etc). The bag opens up by a zip at the top. This is fine, although it would probably be more useful for little ones if it opened up and flipped down...
The bag is insulated inside which means food and drink is kept cool and fresh. I'm happy to make my daughters lunches in the evening, keep the lunch bag in the fridge overnight and when I take it out in the morning the contents are kept cool and fresh until lunch time comes around. It's easy enough to clean with a sponge/cloth too.
My daughter has been using the Brave Lunch Bag for about 6 months and it's still in pretty good condition. There is signs of slight wear and tear though - the grab handle is coming unstitched at one end, the gold rings (which hold the shoulder strap on to the bag) are looking slightly brassy and some of the gold 'piping' is wearing off around the bag. However I don't think it's done too badly (especially since it's used so regularly) and suspect it will last another 6 months until the next summer holidays.
Would I recommend? Yes I would!
Summary: A good quality lunch bag suitable for 'Brave' fans.
