Yumbox combines traditional Japanese bento compartmentalisation with a slick and chic European design aesthetic, using child-friendly construction and BPA-free, food safe materials.
The standout feature of a Yumbox lunchbox is the food tray inside. Divided into labeled sections, the tray has been designed with dietary guidelines in mind to help parents pack correct portion sizes and ensure nutritional balance. A tight seal between the tray and silicone lid makes Yumbox leakproof when packing wet foods like yoghurt, dips and sauces.
While the original six-section Yumbox has been popular among young children, the release of different versions has expanded the range to cater for a wider audience. The Yumbox Panino has four sections and room for a full sandwich or a large salad making it the Yumbox for bigger tummies. Scheduled to be released in the second half of 2016, the Yumbox Mini has been a long requested variation set to fill the gap in the market for a leakproof snack box.
While parents right around the world will tell you how clever Yumbox is, Good Design recently awarded the brand a commendation in the Children’s Products category. Considered the ‘Oscars of the industrial design industry’, the 2013 Good Design Award win put Yumbox alongside fellow award winners such as Apple, Volkswagen and Tupperware. Of the several thousand entries received from 50 countries in the international competition, Yumbox was one of only two children’s product manufacturers to receive an award.
