Just started getting into bento a few weeks ago but only had a Mr. Bento and some random things I found to use for sauce containers. I'd been craving REAL bento supplies, but being stuck in Central Ohio, there's not much to be found. (and eBay is insanely expensive)
One of my Lactivist blog readers lives in Japan though and was kind enough to go shopping for me. She spent about $60 on bento supplies (and another $55 to ship, eek!) but hey, I pretty much never splurge on fun stuff for me. :) Besides, Greg says that bento has made his lunch much more fun than it usually is, so it's giving both of us a little extra joy.
Here's what she sent:
7 Bentos, 2 snack boxes and a napkin holder...
Tons of accessories...
To break it down to more detailed info...
Above: 3pk animal stencils, tulip shaped hot dog cutter, 3 pk of onigiri molds (bear, boy, boy), 3 pk sushi roll mold, tiny metal cutters (dog, car, fish) and small plastic cutters (bear, rabbit, dog.) The metal containers says "The best excellent food is homemade cakes in the after" on the packaging. :)
Above: Four pack of animal sauce containers, two fruit spread containers, Mr. Monkey and Ms. Monkey mayo containers, two shaker bottles.
Above: Box of sushi grass, 80ct triangle foil dividers, 25ct oblong divider, 15ct mini heart foils, two packs of cute animal food dividers.
Above: Two water bottle wraps (one with a shoulder strap), two sets of napkins (one says "loverly strawberry"), straw cleaners, twisty straws, Hello Kitty twisty straw, a Hello Kitty cup and a screw on lid that turns any water bottle into a squeeze bottle.
Above: Orange two-tier bento with mini-chopsticks in the lid and an orange bento belt.
I have no idea what the capacity is (I'd guess about 450ml total) or if it's microwave safe.
Above: Each box is 340 ml and oddly, they'll stack on top of each other. Microwave save without the lids.
The box on the left reads:
"Thank you god. I'm so grateful for having made friends with Rascal, my precious friend."
Above: Snap-tight lid with two dividers inside. (360ml capacity, microwave safe) So glad she found this, I really wanted a HK bento for Elnora for play date days.
Above: Side snap lid for two-tier bento. No idea what the capacity is (or if it's microwave safe.)
Above: My absolute favorite of the boxes. Front says: "We are passionate about lunch communication. The lunch is a good day pastime." 500ml capacity, microwave safe.
Box is sitting on the napkin that wraps around it.
Above: 2 tier "Lube Sheep" (ROTFL!) blue box with dragon fly design.
Top tier 330ml
Bottom tier 250ml
Microwave safe without the lids
Above: Two "Wonder Leo and Cutie Monkey" snack boxes. 220 ml each. Ku-Ma, Wanco, Pyonta napkin box.
