Laptop Lunches Review Including a shake test!

Yay! It’s another lunchbox review! Aren’t you excited? I sure am! I really love to review lunchboxes for my readers! I sure hope you like to read them as much as I like to write them. ♥♥


#LaptopLunches review! TPLB LOVES Laptop Lunches!

It’s true! We do! We love our Laptop Lunches! The Laptop Lunch Box was one of our very first lunchbox purchases. I had viewed many a bento blog which used them and quickly fell in love with the bright containers and endless possibilities. We started off with the purchase of the Purple Laptop Lunchbox and the Garden Laptop Lunch box. You can see a few of our lunches that were packed in these boxes in the photo above.

Imagine my surprised when the generous folks at Laptop Lunches offered us another lunchbox for this review! We of course chose pink this time around! ♥♥


The generous people at Laptop Lunches provided us with a pink Laptop Lunches box  for review. No other compensation was given for this post. All views and opinions expressed are my own or that of my children. This post does contain affiliate links.

Laptop Lunches Lunch Boxes are made from strong, durable, and safe plastic. They contain no lead and are free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC. Laptop Lunches are dishwasher (top rack only, without heat boost) and inner containers are microwave (without lids) safe. Want to know my favorite part about Laptop Lunches? They are USA made!

The EXACT lunchbox  as pictured above (as well as many others) can be purchased for $23.99. A really excellent price considering that this one lunchbox alone can eliminate the use of plastic snack bags forever! Each Laptop Lunches lunchbox comes complete with it’s own set of brightly colored inner containers. 2 large, 2 medium, and 1 small. 3 of the containers come with leak proof lids making those particular containers great for messy foods. Sure, there are a lot of extra pieces to wash, and heaven forbid, lose, but I personally am a container addict, so this doesn’t bother me a bit! In fact, one of the things I love most of all of the individual inner containers, is how easy it is to pack lunch ahead of time. It is very convenient to be able to separate refrigerated items from no refrigerated items with ease.  I can pack yogurt and/or fruit in one of the lidded containers the night before and then just pop them in the fridge while still being able to keep crackers or other non fridge items out. This saves me so much time in those hectic mornings when we are trying to get out the door on time. ♥

Laptop Lunches also provides lots of other products to complement your Laptop Lunchbox. Insulated lunch bags, water bottles, ice packs, and more! One of my personal favorite Laptop add on would have to be the Bento Buddies, and we don’t even have them yet! They are definitely next on my list of purchases. They are a set of extra containers including one larger container that could easily hold a full sized sandwich! ♥

Okay, how about some new Laptop Lunches lunchboxes that I have recently packed for my tiny princesses…


Tiny princess K chose the pink Laptop Lunchbox (courtesy of  Laptop Lunches) for her meal. She had… Chunked Colby cheese, some mini pepperoni rounds, Trader Joe’s sour cream and onion puffed corn, 2 Trader Joe’s yogurt stars, blueberry Greek yogurt with sprinkles, carrots with ranch for dipping in the small Laptop Lunches lidded container, a yummy berry mix, and few chunks of assorted melon. Another thing we really LOVE about the Laptop Lunches box is the side compartment which is PERFECT for utensils and a napkin! ♥

We decided to to a shake test with A’s Laptop Lunches meal and we think it was a great success!

Here is her meal before the shake…


She chose the Garden Laptop Lunches box that we purchased as one of our very first lunchbox purchases. She had… Blueberry yogurt with sprinkles, assorted grapes, carrot and snow peas with ranch for dipping, Colby cheese chunks, garden vegetable ritz crackers, Trader Joe’s yogurt stars, Trader Joe’s puffed corn, and a turkey sandwich.

As with our other shake tests, we gave the Laptop Lunches lunchbox a good hearty shake. So, if you ever wonder what our meals look like after traveling from home to school lunch table this might give you a better idea…


As usual the sprinkles were mixed into the yogurt, the seal food pick got somewhat buried in the grapes, and the yogurt starts shifted a bit, but all in all I think everything stayed together quite nicely. What do you think?

My tiny princesses give the Laptop Lunches lunchbox 4.5 out of 5 crowns. Wonder why 4.5? Well, my youngest tiny princess couldn’t quite give it all 5 crowns. The opening method can be a tad on the tricky side for younger lunchers. This should definitely be considered before your purchase. There is sort of an exact science for opening the box. I will say that once your child figures it out it’s easy as pie. It’s just a matter of getting there first. ♥♥ Other than that we have NO complaints. We love our Laptop Lunches boxes and my girls look forward to having lunch packed in them!

some things I used to make these meals…
