My Babies love Bento I'm becoming a fan of Bento Lunches! My only problem is, finding the right lunchbox for the girls. I've done some research and found that the better boxes are made in Japan due to the fact that they do not use BPA or other toxic chemicals in their lunchboxes. The cheaper ones from China might be cute, but they are not 'safe' for daily use by the Snowflowers.I'm really looking foward to making some cute lunches when fall starts. I just need to track down the elusive lunchboxes and then I can start my foray into the world of kyaraben.

I love the bento boxes I use in Ellie's lunch, and they are all from Japan. I was lucky enough to hit the big Japanese market outside Chicago for some stuff, but I've also ordered online. This is by far my favorite one:

And we have a couple from the Shinzi Katoh line, and those are great too. Cute designs, and they have them on Amazon and Ebay.

And here's a good site if you want info on a particular product before you buy: http://justbento.com/

Love those bento boxes. Thanks for the good info. about the safe ones. I have become a nut about stuff like this and the dangers of cruddy cheap plastic.
