Back to school is a time where parents are all looking around for the best quality stuff at the best price.
But we end up buying low price products that we believe are decent, only to find out after a week or so that they’re ruined or lost and the kids need new t-shirts or shoes or lunchbox.
It almost brings me to tears to think about the amount of money I have wasted on the uniform that just falls apart or lunch boxes that disappeared because they’re 6 kids with the same one.
That why I have started choosing quality over price and shopping around for the best products. I would make it my mission find something different, yet still stylish enough to keep my kids happy.
That’s why this year P is sporting this fab Shark lunchbox from Joules.
It is a dark blue lunch box, which is perfect for my messy whirlwind. It is made of 100% polyester and has a cute slogan “Let’s Do Lunch” printed inside the shark’s mouth.
In the past, P has destroyed many of the plastic fronted lunch boxes by pulling off the front or stabbing pencils through the cover. This lunchbox is made with a woven material outside which is harder to destroy. So I have the peace of mind to know it will stand up to the onslaught P is going to put it through.
The design on the front is both appealing and fun for my 8-year-old, who thinks sharks are cool.
The lunchbox comes with a plastic container for the sandwiches or fruit. Which is something you don’t get with the cheaper options. So I know long had to buy sandwich bags or go out and spend extra money of the separate containers.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much room the bag contained. It is bigger than most typical lunch boxes. But I like that because it means I don’t need to worry about squashed sandwiches.
P totally adores this lunch box and so far it has stood up to being thrown, dropped and stood on. Even the plastic container didn’t break. Although I wouldn’t advise trying this because I think we were just lucky.
Both lunch boxes cost £16.95 each. But if you add up how much a normal lunchbox and container costs you are looking at paying a similar price.
In my honest opinion, the quality of this product far out ways the price compared to the cheaper lunch boxes. So you get great value for money.
