Bento Boxes Are The New Lunch Pail

I love the idea of Japanese Bento Boxes. Not only are they environmentally friendly (and these are BPA-free, Lead-free, Pthalate-free), they’re adorable for packing lunches and picnics. These Takenaka Bento Boxes above come in nine different colors so you can collect a few and mix and match, and each Bento Box contains a moveable divider so you can pack multiple foods in one box without things getting messy.

More Bento Boxes after the jump!
