Based on the ever popular app, this Angry Birds lunch box was chosen by my six year old son at the end of last Summer and has served almost a whole academic year with daily use.
This is a perfectly proportioned bag for a primary school aged child, with ample room for the obligatory sandwiches, even when packed into their own small box. There is sufficient space to add a drinks bottle, crisps and whatever other snacks are the flavour of the day. One of the advantages of this flexible style of lunch bag is that is much easier to squash and squeeze items about than with the more rigid style of lunch box. The drawback might be that this style is a little less protective of the contents but, in all honesty, my son''s lunch seems to survive intact despite his less than careful treatment at times.
The lunch bag is bright and colourful with a plastic coated interior lining that is helpfully easy to wipe clean after each use. Unfortunately, the inner does have a stitched seam where crumbs and other debris tends to congregate which can be quite tricky to clean thoroughly. The cleaning instructions recommend only wiping this down with a wipe cloth. Being something of a domestic rebel, I chose to ignore these instructions partway through the year and followed a tip that I had d read online. I popped this in the washing machine with a mixed load on a 40 degree load and found that this not entirely thoroughly cleaned the interior but also bought the fabric exterior back up to its initial brightness without damaging or fading the materials used at all.
This is still a popular brand with a wide age of children and is a product that I am happy to recommend. At full price, this costs around 8 pounds but is widely available for much less than that and I spotted this recently half price at Morrisons which seems a good buy to me.
