Yubo Lunchbox Review and Giveaway!





Are you tired of using sandwich bags to pack lunches for your kids? Well, here's a great alternative: Yubo Lunchboxes! Yubo Lunchboxes are BPA free, recyclable, and dishwasher safe. Yubo sells 3 different size containers for the lunchboxes that you can mix and match, depending on what foods you need to pack, and they also have custom icepacks that fit in the bottom of the lunchbox to keep the food cold. And, you can even pick a personalized faceplate for your child's lunchbox!
"In 2007, while making lunches for our two daughters, we became frustrated with the amount of plastic baggies used every day. The typical store bought lunchboxes we owned were impossible to clean, they collected crumbs and foul old-food odors. Worst of all, our kids were over the novelty of their lunchboxes less than a week after buying them! That was the start of our journey to re-invent the lunchbox. We knew there had to be a better way. We set out to balance our passion for the environment with our kids' passion for having fun.

Knowing we couldn't go it alone, we sought out Whipsaw Inc., a highly acclaimed Industrial Design firm in Silicon Valley CA. Whipsaw had designed many hit products including the innovative Adiri baby bottle and the Leapfrog LeapPads. Dan Harden, Whipsaw’s President and chief designer (and also a parent of lunchbox kids), was excited by the opportunity to reinvent this old product. It was then that we, along with Dan, set out to design the world’s best lunchbox, called “yubo”.

We started the design development with lofty goals. We wanted to make the lunchbox customizable, interactive, fun, flexible, functional, washable, ecological, colorful, beautiful, and of course, very cool and loaded with personality. Yubo had to be something both kids and parents would love. The evolution of yubo took over a year, after hundreds of sketches, CAD diagrams, models, and protoypes, yubo was finally born. At last, a lunchbox that’s simple, clean, functional, eco-friendly and fun!"

I was sent the Yubo Deluxe Lunchbox set in the "School Rules" theme. It is soo handy! I was very impressed with how well-made it is. This lunchbox will last a long time! I love how everything fits in the lunchbox so nicely. I have a sandwich container, and 2 smaller containers for fruit, pudding, or whatever I want to put in. And, of course, the icepack is a great benefit!

Yubo is giving a Deluxe Lunchbox (winner gets to choose boy, girl or gender neutral) to one of my readers!!
