13 Fun and Whimsical Toddler Lunch Boxes


I think I should just officially call this LUNCHBOX WEEK!

First, I talked about the different kinds of lunches I pack and the process behind it. Because there is totally a process and you folks who aren’t packing yet…JUST YE WAIT UNTIL KINDERGARTEN. I know, the dreaded “just wait” card. I pulled it.

Anywho. Half of the battle of packing a lunch is finding a lunchbox that a) your toddler loves and b) doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eye with a fork every morning before 8 AM. Because while your toddler may LOOOOVE Dora, I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to be staring Dora in the face before you’ve consumed your first cup of coffee.

Instead, here are 13 really fun and toddler-sweet lunchboxes that both you and your kiddo will love. (The only character is Curious George, and it’s vintage-ish!)

    This is the lunchbox my son uses. We LOVE it because it's cute and bright-colored, but full insulated.
