FunBites Review & Giveaway (ended 3/12/2012), Ice Cream and Sailing for lunch
Posted March 7, 2012on:
It’s my first review and giveaway! FunBites was generous enough to offer me the opportunity to try one of their FunBites cutters. I chose the Luv It heart shaped cutter to review, and they also will be giving one away to one of my lucky readers! Details below for this giveaway and a few others too!
A few of the first things I noticed when it arrived was that it was made in the USA. Who doesn’t love supporting a business that keeps their money and employees right here at home? The next was that it’s a fun bright color which my kids were instantly attracted to, wanted to play with and wanted to try out. The most important thing as a mom is that the product is sturdy. I let the 2 and 3 year old have a go at it, and I honestly don’t think they could scratch or break it if they tried. It’s a very well-made product and washes very easily. As a bento-making mom I also want something functional that give me options. It also has a “popper” to pop your food out without having to poke at it and ruin the shape. I like the fun heart shape that it makes, and I wanted to try to find other things to make from it.
For little Miss G I chose to separate the large heart, turn it upside down and make some sailboats out of it. The boats were cut out of two pieces of whole grain bread & filling was done after the cutting with almond butter & jam. I cut a piece of Veggy brand “cheese” to make the sun and fish. The “water” is barley colored with India Tree natural food coloring. I also used the FunBites cutter for the mango pieces in the green cup and the strawberries in the blue cup below. Her lunch is packed in an Easy Lunch Box.
For Little Miss A I chose an ice cream cone theme. Again, the FunBites cutter washed off quickly with little scrubbing for reuse. Her bread was also cut from 2 pieces of whole grain bread and filled with almond butter & jam after cutting. I used the cutter with a sweet & sara brand vegan marshmallow cut in half for the “ice cream” and shook on some fun sprinkles. Both are topped with a fruit leather heart shaped “cherry”. Inbetween the cones are dried apricots cut from the very same cutter. The pink heart container has raisins in it. At the top right is a clementine with a fruit leather heart and below are all watermelon pieces and a pineapple chunk all cut with the FunBites Luv It. Her lunch is also packed in an Easy Lunch Box.
