lunch bag

Bit babyish? Sorry

Something more like Ben 10 would probably be appropriate. Sorry.

My Primary 2 son (age 7) would think that was either a) for younger kids or b) for girls.

He has This Ben 10 one - which he saved up for and bought with his own pocket money cos I'm a meanie!

Just going into YR2 DS1 would have loved it (was obsessed with Shaun the Sheep), but if he's in YR2 now heading towards YR3 would say it's too babyish.

Also those type of insulated soft, zip up lunchboxes are AWFUL to clean.

Yurtgirl Wed 03-Jun-09 12:59:12

Yes that is what I thought - thankyou

Would he like
this one?

FAQ - Why? you just bung them in the washing machine, job done.

What age is year 2, my son primary two so 7 wouldn't like it, but he doesn't know shaun the sheep.

And my pc really didn't like that link for some reason hmm

Yurtgirl Wed 03-Jun-09 13:03:35

Year 2 is age 6-7

Its a link to John Lewis which seems to work fine on my pooter - lunch bag with camoflage print

FAQinglovely Wed 03-Jun-09 13:09:51

have you never looked into the corners - even after washing machine/dishwasher washing??? They stain and collect bits even with those forms of washing.

alfiesmadmother Wed 03-Jun-09 13:28:37

I don't think it's babyish. Shaun the sheep is aimed at older kids. If your DS likes it it's up to him.

madwomanintheattic Wed 03-Jun-09 13:32:38

that one would be fine.
do you just want to be able to find it in amongst the ben10 ones?

alfiesmadmother Wed 03-Jun-09 13:33:43

I actually think Ben 10 is babyish for a 7 year old, al the 4 year olds at our school have it. Perhaps a football one?

TsarChasm Wed 03-Jun-09 13:36:30

I have a yr2 ds (7) I know he'd think the army one was fab. Shaun the sheep, not so keen I suspect, but dd would like it.

He's also mad about Spongebob/Starwars things too if that helps.

bobblehat Wed 03-Jun-09 13:37:24

My ds (7) would love that lunchbox, but it's fair to say that he is not into your usual 7 year old boy stuff. He's got one with a small dinosaur print on it, which he loves.

madwomanintheattic Wed 03-Jun-09 13:38:03

lol, the ben10 lunchbags are on every lunch trolley here. we have at least 7 on each trolley from yr r,1 and 2 (infant school). ds only got his because his yr 4 friend at the junior school decided he didn't want to use it any more...

hobbgoblin Wed 03-Jun-09 13:39:35

I was just about to suggest camouflage! I think he'd love the JL one.

Thumbs up from me (with DSs age almost 6 and 7)

PMSLBrokeMN Wed 03-Jun-09 13:40:15

DS currently has Ben 10, in the past has had Transformers and Spiderman, he would LOVE Shaun the Sheep! But then he has an older sister and slavishly worships everything she likes!

PMSLBrokeMN Wed 03-Jun-09 13:42:04

Oooh, just saw your link to the JL one - must order one for DS ready for September (yes yes way too organised!)

FranSanDisco Wed 03-Jun-09 13:42:43

I bought this for 6 & 3/4 yo DS. It has bugs on it rather than a comoflage pattern. Coolbag

OrangeFish Wed 03-Jun-09 13:43:35

I would say no, DS would think is for babies or girls. Sorry.

saadia Wed 03-Jun-09 13:47:48

Mine wouldn't like it because he doesn't watch the prog. He has a plain (free) one that we got with some magazine once.

Yurtgirl Wed 03-Jun-09 15:32:23

Oh thankyou for the replies one and all

To explain ds has had the shaun one since September - He informed me today that for ages other kids have said it is babyish - He didnt tell me this till today!

So I toddled off to get one I have had stashed away for a while - the John Lewis camoflage one

But then I wondered......... if that would be considered babyish too

Both are £6 in wilkinsons atm

TsarChasm Wed 03-Jun-09 17:40:49

Lol grinI had the same conversation with my ds about a year ago!

I'd been sending him in with his Buzz Lightyear lunchbox.

He took me to one side and had to break the news to his poor old mum that he'd grown out of it and could he have a more grown-up one as 'comments have been made'. Oh dear. I was choked as he manfully patted me on the back.
