This Season's Lunchbox



Izzy's old lunch bag finally had to be retired. It had a good life (two years) but with holes poking through the bottom the time had come to bid it adios.

It was easy to find a new one because I went straight back to the Mimi the Sardine website to see what was new. Izzy and I looked together and found this new lunch backpack which is just the right size, roomier than the last bag and so portable. I wanted the jungle version (I might just get it for myself) but Izzy favored the penguins.

These are an adorable safe lunch bag option. No lead, plastic or Dora* to worry about.

*Montessori schools discourage children from wearing or carrying items emblazoned with movie or t.v. characters..bravo to them!

I can still recall my first lunchbox with great clarity, and it happened to be one of those metal ones depicting a TV show .. Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. What about you L? A Trolls lunchbox perhaps?
