Me: Raines, since you’re going into First Grade, you’ll be eating lunch at school everyday. You need a lunch box!
Raines [unenthused]: Ok.
Me: Lunch boxes are cool! You can get all kinds of different designs….wait – do you even know what a lunch box is?
Raines: It’s a box for your lunch, Mom.
Me: Well, yeah. But you can get really cool ones like….maybe space, or dinosaurs….[silence]
Me [now at the computer, googling]: Ok, look at this one – it’s camo!
Raines: Mom, I want a lunchbox with the Battleship New Jersey on it.
Me: There’s also one with sharks, or– wait, what?
Raines: The Battleship New Jersey.
Me: Yeah that’s not gonna happen.
Raines: Why not?
Me: Honey, it doesn’t quite work like that. There’s a ton of options to choose from, but not anything in the world that you can think of. I can find sea-related lunch boxes like sharks or pirates, and I might be able to find a lunch box with a boat, but I really don’t think–
Raines: Google it, Mom. Just type in, “Battleship New Jersey Lunchbox”.
Me: Ok honey. We can google it, but see, there’s really noth-
You gotta be freaking kidding me. It’s the actual Battleship New Jersey….on a lunchbox.
And check out at the inside:
Yubo makes BPA-free and Phtalate-free lunchboxes that are also dishwasher safe and recyclable (including the inserts shown above). But the really cool part? The faceplates are fully customizable. As long as you can find a picture, your child’s wildest dreams can become a lunchbox. And when your kid outgrows their obsession, new faceplates can be purchased without having to shell out for a whole new lunchbox.
Yubo also has some really cool stock designs, but I think Pax (my youngest) would get a kick out of one with his face on it. We already know what Raines is getting.
Also, if you are in a rush, Amazon prime does have some Yubo lunchboxes in stock.
Thus concludes my story of getting schooled by Raines. “GOOGLE IT MOM.” Sheesh.
