Paddington Bear Washable Lunch Bag Review

I asked Sarah, busy mother of three, to try out one of my lunch bags. Here is her review:

Seb – aged three -was very pleased to be asked to try out a PinkyMinky lunch bag. He loved the Paddington Bear fabric and immediately said he wasn’t going to give it back!

I was keen to see how it worked out as a lunch bag, as like many other parents, I’ve been through a variety of kids lunch boxes.

Size
Perfect. It fits a child sized lunch in without wasting any space. Seb has had different sorts of items, sometimes a couple of small tupperware pots, sometimes a bottle of water and I’ve not experienced a problem fitting anything in at all.

Cleaning
This is the issue that often turns a ‘good’ lunch box into a bad one! This one couldn’t be easier. If it’s just a bit sticky on the inside you can wipe it out. When the yoghurt has hit every surface, I’ve just bunged it in the washing machine and it comes out like new. I haven’t selected any particular programme for it -just a normal wash. Its been washed several times now and the fabric is as bright and fresh looking as it was at the start.

Ease of use
Seb can carry the bag himself, either by the handle or over his shoulder ‘handbag-style’. It has two ‘popper’ fasteners on it that hold the opening together. When open it’s easy to get everything in and when closed the flap comes over and velcros down to keep everything in. Seb likes to hang his bag on the end of the lunch box trolley. At the end of the day the bag can be squashed down – nice and small and light. It’s easy to store when not in use – unlike the rigid style boxes.

Looks
Not the most important aspect of a lunch box but I have to say no-one has one the same as ours! It’s easy to spot at the end of the day and we get lots of compliments on it!
