Right, i am in need of four DIFFERENT lunchboxes- not those horrific bag things- they break and smell rank!

Ideally metal, but would consider plastic, complete with handles so that i don't have to carry them all grin They need to be individually identifiable BUT the same iyswim ie the same lunchbox but one with cars, one with tractors etc etc (one of my ocd tendencies wink)

I need four all in boys designs- someone send me to a nice site that will have exactly what i need for a good (cheap!) price PLEEEEAASE!

What about these - haven't ordered from them but they look good and seem to tick all your boxes!

kitkatqueen Mon 22-Jun-09 22:33:57

Found some nice ones the other day on ebay...

ooh i like- but wondering if a sandwich box will be large enough- they don't do many designs in the lunchbox size- hmm

Did you know that the bags can be machine-washed? I do mine every couple of weeks and they do not smell

Can I suggest Asda? They had a fabulous range last time we were looking.

Second the 'bag washing' thing - ours all get washed on a Friday and are fine.

i have done but god knows what my kids do to them- the inside always rips and the foam goes manky! I like rigid + dishwasher rinse each night!! grin

lunch boxes on Asda Direct

ChippyMinton Mon 22-Jun-09 22:47:08

matalan usually have a good selection - maybe a bit early for 'back to school' stock though?

weegiemum Mon 22-Jun-09 22:47:32

Ah! I also used to live in deepest darkest rural-land but now have the delights of the Bright Lights and can go to Asda any time of the day or night!

But also miss Woolies!

What Asda has at the minute seems to be all bags but they are available online for those deprivation moments!

plain but lots of colours

I dont really get why people complain about lunch bags
Mine have only ever had bags and we have had no problems - I wipe them every day after school, I have never needed to wash them though
I buy a new one each every year

abermum Mon 22-Jun-09 22:50:27

<<wail>> they're all bags though sad i've just found plain plastic retro ones- maybe we could sticker them up?

How difficult can it be for someone to stock a decent range of lunch tins?

NellieTheEllie Mon 22-Jun-09 22:54:01

any good?

Today my dd's lunch bag came back containing:

A half empty drinking yogurt bottle with no lid,

2 very squashed plums


a pull top bottle containing water that was partially open -

DD Was shaking it as she ambled aross the playground saying "it sounds sploshy"

thats why I need a dishwasherble lunch box

I like the Emma Bridgewater ones but only see three designs on their website one a bit girly
