    The laptap lunch is a nice concept but it has too many parts and can be a bit difficult to open. I just bought www.easylunchboxes.com for my DC's lunch and we really like them. Only 2 pieces and they are easy to open and close. I was using a bunch of small containers for DS's lunch and this is so much easier. I didn't buy the cooler from them b/c they fit fine in the coolers I already have.

    I also use a bunch of small Glad containers for my DDs lunchbox, but I want to get something easier for next school year. Are these leakproof? I often put fruit cups in the small containers because DD has a hard time pulling the plastic cover off the top without spilling the juice all over. I usually pour most of the juice out but I wouldn't want excess juice to leak all in her lunchbox. The containers I use now work great but I'm tired of trying to fit them all in her lunchbox! These would be a lot easier.

    How do these latch shut? On the video demo it looked like there were two side snaps or something. I couldn't really tell. I too am wondering if these are leakproof.

    The reviews on one blog say that the compartments are not sealed, so the juice would leak throughout the container. I think that she mentioned used Glad press n seal to keep it contained in one section??

    Do they fit in a lunchbox (like Wildkin) with a funtainer?

    I am getting ready to order them too, but $8.xx+ for shipping on $14.00 YIKES!

    I agree! I just contacted them to see if they will offer a BBB code. I will update when I hear more.

    Just got the Laptop lunchbox system (flowered case) using the recent 40% Diapers.com code. Wasn't planning on it but couldn't resist for my daughter to use when she starts preschool in the fall. I always liked the Laptop system but never broke down and purchased for my 2 sons. When they were in preschool I used a 3-sectioned Tupperware divided plate I already had and I placed that in a lunchbox. Was excited when I got the Laptop system but the lids do look too hard for my 3 year old daughter to remove. So I may not get to use it in the fall like I had hoped.

    Response from Easy Lunchbox folks:

    Hi Gina,


    Thanks for your email and letting me know about the enthusiasm for my lunchboxes on the Baby Bargains Forum!
    So great to hear


    As a parent and thrifty shopper as well, my goal was to offer a well made product at an affordable price. So while my EasyLunchbox system is at least half the cost of many other lunch box products on the market, I don't have control over shipping costs, which have gone up considerably of late with fuel surcharges, etc.


    I know shipping is expensive, and believe me, we make no profit on it. In fact, depending on the destination zip code, we usually lose a couple of dollars by offering the $8.95 flat rate. Many zip codes closer to San Diego, CA (where we ship from) actually get sent via first class mail, which ends up costing less than $8.95 (customer has a choice at checkout).


    Please use the code GREENIT at checkout to take 10% off your order between now and Labor Day. This will offset the shipping charges a bit and is in support of the Green My Lunchbox Campaign (http://www.greenmylunchbox.com/)


    Another idea is to order with another family, and then you would get free shipping if your order goes over $50.


    Thanks again for writing, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any other questions!



    Sincerely yours,
    Kelly Lester, Mom & CEO

    Wow, that is cool that she responded quickly and personally. Thanks for taking the effort to look into a BBB code for us! I think I will order a set of these to try out.
