PlanetBox Review & Giveaway!!

~This giveaway is CLOSED~

I'm positive most of you have heard of PlanetBox, but for those who haven't, get ready to learn about a truly awesome resource that's great for EVERYONE!

To quote PlanetBox's website, PlanetBox is:
"lunch transportation for a green generation".
I just love that!

I would have been tickled pink to have a lunch box like this when I was a kid. I had a blue plastic Smurf lunch box (which I still have, btw!). I remember when I'd open it at lunchtime I'd find the little plastic baggies of food were all jumbled together and smooshed after having been pummeled by my matching :) thermos. Oh and I remember the latch on that box, too - that flimsy thing would pop open and my sad little lunch would end up all over the sidewalk. Really, no joke - that happened to me! It's funny to think about now, but even at 7 years old that drove me crazy!

Well, I'm delighted to say that PlanetBox has come up with a fantastic solution to those old lunch box problems. They designed lunch trays with compartments! More than that, the compartments are specifically measured with portion control in mind. And the latch on the box is excellent in that not only does it stay closed when needed, it's easy for little hands to manipulate. No tricky closures here!

Want to know what is really cool about these boxes? They are made of stainless steel which means they are non-toxic, they won't stain, and they don't retain the odors from lunches past! Also, they are completely reusable! Totally eco-friendly AND they're dishwasher safe. Talk about economical and efficient!

Want to know what James would say is the coolest thing about these boxes? The magnets! The founders and creators of PlanetBox (a husband & wife team who are parents themselves) didn't overlook the fact that they were making lunch boxes for kids. They came up with the brilliant idea of making magnet sets to adhere to the outside of the box. They are removable and you can mix and match the many sets!

We've had our PlanetBox for about a year now and we just l-o-v-e it. We've used it quite often over the past 12 months and I'm pleased to say it's still as good as new!

Here's a photo of James and his Planetbox. (This day's meal included: carrot sticks, pitted cherries, blueberries, popcorn, star shaped peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat, and a few gluten free cookie buttons.) James and I have such fun coming up with new ideas for filling up those compartments and new ways to display his food. He enjoys his meals so much and I know he's getting everything he needs and in just the amount he needs.

(Feeling not so creative when it comes to food combos? There are TONS of meal ideas on PlanetBox's Facebook page and an excellent grocery list printable on their store website.)

And with this handy carrying bag, it's super easy for James to tote his lunch to camp. The handle is just his size and the whole system is sleek - not at all bulky. On the outside of the bag there's a place for his water bottle, and a pocket for a mid-morning snack. On the inside is an interior slot for a PlanetBox cold kit, and even a couple little straps that secure utensils or a sweet little love note. :)

We have the complete Rover set, so we also have these awesome little "dippers". We use these containers all.the.time. They are excellent for holding wet and dry foods. And they don't have to be used with your lunch box, either. In fact, both of our dippers are in my diaper bag right now holding cheerios and goldfish crackers! :)

Ok, so now you understand why I'm such a huge fan of PlanetBox. Would you like one of your own? You can hop on over to the PlanetBox shop and buy one now. True, they initial price may seem a tiny bit high, but consider the fact that these are reusable - meaning they'll last you a lot longer than a brown paper bag and plastic baggies! Care for them properly and you'll enjoy your lunch box for YEARS! It ends up being a savings for sure.

You can also enter to WIN a PlanetBox! Yep, that's right, the lovely folks at PlanetBox are very generously gifting a Rover set to one of my readers! And we're talking the COMPLETE set here! (A $60 value!)

One very lucky person will receive:

:: 1 Magnet set (the design is the winner's choice)
:: 1 Dipper set
:: 1 Carry bag (the color is the winner's choice)

Are you excited?! I am!! I'm thrilled that one of you will get to enjoy the fun and goodness that is PlanetBox! :D
