Monbento recently released their new kids’ line. They sent the new Monbento Tresor and Gram to me for review. My favorite feature of this new line is the outside latches, allowing kids to easily open these boxes without assistance. The Tresor box is sized more appropriately for a child’s meal versus the original. The Tresor is a multi layered box with three different compartments. One larger compartment on the bottom which has a capacity of up to 450 ml for the main course and two containers on the upper level for sides, each container can hold 150 ml. The upper containers are not leak proof, but when the box is latched closed the box lid keeps the inner container lids in place. However, I would shy away from packing yogurt or apple sauce in these containers. Both of the boxes come with five interchangeable circular tabs to decorate your monbento. If you check out monbento's website, they have added an option to download and customize your own tabs and print them out at home.
I packed lunch for my daughter in the Tresor. It contains - crinkle cut cucumbers, sliced strawberries, and a bean, rice, & cheese burrito. I decorated the burrito with a sheet of baran.
The Monbento Gram is a snack size box. It holds a capacity of 600 ml. Great for snacks on the go and small enough to tuck in to a backpack or purse. It also works great as a Thermos accompaniment.
My son's lunch - leftover pasta, garlic bread, and apple chunks.
The new monbento products are sleek and modern in appearance as expected from it's predecessor. They do not have the soft touch finish on the outside that the MB original has. The Tresor and Gram are available in four different colors: blueberry, banana, kiwi, and raspberry. They are BPA free and microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe. We give the new kids' line two thumbs up!
