The PVC-free “stoh” lunch totes from Milkdot just may be the answer to my–and your–lunch-packing wishes and hopes and dreams. They are absolutely practical for kids heading off to camp or their first full day at school in the fall (sniff, whimper) but truth be told, the design is so stylish I’d be thrilled to bring them to work myself and save a little cash on take-out lunches.
Thoughtfully designed by Janet Cho, the perfectly sized interior is insulated and wipeable (and lead-free, yay) and mesh pockets help wrangle utensils, string cheese or crazy straws. But what’s really cool are clever little touches like the luggage-style photo ID tag. I also love the fact that the tote holds its shape to keep sandwiches from getting smooshed, but then folds flat so it’s easy to pack away for trips.
Of course there’s the fact that these lunch bags are soft so my kids can bonk each other over the head with them without inflicting too much damage. Always a plus as far as I’m concerned. –Liz
