Phunky Bento here in New Zealand sent me two Raine Beau lunch boxes – one to review, and the other to giveaway. I took the Kiwi Fruit one and gave it to Ronan, and have comprehensively tried it out …
The Raine Beau is a large(ish), sturdy lunch box that holds a decent amount of food.
The overall capacity of the Raine Beau is greater than that of the Yumbox (although I haven’t tried the new Yumbox Tapas yet, so I can’t comment on that). Because the compartments seal individually, I could include yoghurt if I wanted to.
The only issue I have is that the box itself is a bit stiff to open – which meant my 3 year old did struggle from time-to-time. He eventually figured out how to pry it open, but it wasn’t as straight forward as I originally though.
Very durable – my boy dropped it on concrete a few times.
A bit of a pain to clean, but no more than any of the other ones.
The Apple / Yoghurt Test:
YES you can fit a small apple, but sadly NO not a yoghurt pottle. HOWEVER because it’s got sealed compartments, you can empty the contents of the yoghurt into one of them, and it will be fine.
Can my 3 year old open it? Sometimes
Can my 5 year old open it? YES
What age would you think this lunchbox was suitable for:
Definitely preschool / kindergarten. I think my 5 year old would also be ok with it.
Where To Buy:
You can buy the Raine Beau lunch box range from Phunky Bento.
