Penguin bento - Monbento Tresor Review

I was pleasantly surprised when the nice people over at Monbento contacted me awhile back to share the news of their new bento box, Monbento Tresor for kids, which is going to be released in the US, and offered to send me a set to try out. Since it's now being released and I've tried the box, I'm going to share with you what we think about the box.

Like the Monbento Original, which we also are pleased to own, their Tresor is made of top quality materials. Their award winning design shows the result of understanding and experience. All together this makes owning and using it a pleasure. The lower container has a capacity of 450 ml, and each of the other two food cups hold 150 ml and come with lids. While the lids are not completely leakproof for holding liquids, they do an excellent job of keeping the food separated. The Tresor cover is secured with two latches which are at the same time secure and easy for a child to operate. Also on the cover is a place for customizing tokens. Ours came with a collection of five disks to choose from, and I should think it quite easy to use one for a pattern and make your own artistic decoration. Monbento Tresor is available in the cheerful colors of Blueberry, Banana, Kiwi, and Raspberry.

In today's bento Nikolai will find a pair of penguin sandwiches with provolone tummies, made by using two circle cutters, carrot beaks, candy eyes, and little cheddar feet. The flippers were made by using a heart shaped cutter on the bread crust and dividing in two. In one of the food cups there are organic baby carrots and sugar snap peas. In the other there are grapes and strawberries with a little penguin pick. It was packed in our Monbento Tresor.

Here are the supplies that I used to create this lunch.

Disclosure: Monbento generously provided me with the items without cost to me. Other than receiving the items, I have not received any compensation to write this review.
