Santa bought me one of these lovely Lego lunch boxes last year after I dropped several not so subtle hints! It had caught my eye on Firebox.com. I have since seen these on Tesco.com and Amazon and they are priced between £6-£8.
These boxes come in a variety of colours. I have a lovely bright pink box but there are also several colours to choose from basically any colour brick that Lego make they have a matching box. These boxes also come in two sizes the larger 8 stud box and the smaller 4 stud boxes.
My box is the larger of the two and it is rectangular in shape. The box is made from a sturdy high quality plastic which feels very robust. The product dimensions are; 20 x 10 x 7.5 cm.
The box is licensed by Lego so it is a replica of a brick. It features 8 studs on the top with the Lego logo branded on them. The box is in two pieces which fit inside themselves. The bottom of the box features a little smooth bit of plastic that you can write a name on presumably as this is marketed at children.
The box itself is lovely but it can only fit one sandwich in and in my case a Babybel. There is no space for anything else in there. The sandwich pretty much fills the whole box up. The box can only really be used for a sandwich or wrap because of the design of the lid I would be cautious putting a salad in it as the dressing would leak out of the side. Pasta works OK in here though.
Overall I like this box despite it's small size I always get complimented on how cool it looks and I get asked where I got it. I have since purchased the smaller boxes for my daughter to put snacks in the smaller boxes fit inside this one but it is impossible to get a sandwich in and a smaller box in together so a bit of a design flaw but I will forgive Lego as it looks a lot nicer than a boring old Tupperware box!
4 stars from me.
Whilst perusing on the Lego website, I stumbled across these gems of a product. A real life LEGO LUNCHBOX to hold your sandwiches and lunch in when you go to work or college or even school.
The lunchboxes come in a whole range of sizes from bright girly pink to black, yellow, red, blue, green... They are made from plastic and are exactly as shown in the photo. Disappointingly you do not get a Lego Hamburger inside! The lid slots over the base and you push it right down to enclose your lunch. It is basically two squares of plastic, one slightly smaller than the other and one slots inside the other to enclose the contents. So when you remove the lid, you are left with a square box of plastic much like a square bowl.
The lids are easy to remove as there are small semi circles cut out of the plastic on all four sides that you can use to grip the base as you pull the lid upwards. Each lunchbox has the distinctive four Lego round nodules on it with the word "Lego" printed on each to show they are an official Lego product.
Each lunchbox costs £6- £8. Which is very reasonable. I love these, I have a green lunchbox that has been washed and re-used many many times and still looks in great condition. The storage space inside each lunchbox measures 12 cm square and 9.5cm high. They are big enough to carefully arrange a few sandwiches and a small bag of crisps in but you do have to spend some time squishing or arranging your food to try to make it fit in the box. If you choose your food carefully or are good at the game Tetris so you are good at arranging goods to fit in a certain shaped space then you will get along well with this product.
The only downside is the plastic can retain food smells. Also if you do not wash these out properly then put the lid on and put them away, you will find they develop a foisty musty smell like candlewax and crayons. I suppose if you care for these and are careful about making sure they are cleaned and dried well you will get more out of the purchase.
I love how these look- they are very unique the only drawback is the size and how you are constricted if you take more than 1 sandwich or small roll and one other item for your lunch.
