Little Lunch Box Co Bento Lunch Boxes

Featuring bright colours and fun designs, our bento lunch boxes are easy to use, amazingly practical and, most importantly, look great too. Available in three handy sizes, our bento lunch boxes are perfect for little kids, older kids and kids at heart (yes, we’re looking at you!)

Here’s what you need to know about our three classic bento lunch boxes - the petite Bento Two, the generous Bento Three and the versatile Bento Five. Don’t forget to check out our shop to discover all our designs and the many configurations possible with our bento lunch boxes.


Bento Two

Small, yet mighty, the Bento Two features two leak-proof compartments that can be customised with our Little Lunch Box Co bento cups and dividers to suit the appetite of your little one. Because the Bento Two is compact, lightweight and has a child-friendly latch, it’s perfect for little hands, making it easy for younger children to get to the good stuff inside.

Easy to clean and dishwasher safe (top rack < 45 degrees celsius), the Bento Two is manufactured from durable BPA free products making it 100% kid-safe plus tough enough to withstand daily use. Available in a range of fun designs, whether you’re heading off on a family outing or packing lunch for preschool fun, the Bento Two is ready for action!

  • Dimensions – 12.3 x 12.9 x 5.6cm
  • Capacity – 500ml
  • Weight – 195g
  • Fits a whole sandwich in one compartment with crusts off and cut into 4

Bento Three

Need to fuel your kids for a long day at school? Then the Bento Three is for you! Perfect for packing sandwiches and wraps, the larger compartments in the Bento Three give you more options for lunchtime, while still fitting easily into your child’s school bag. You can customise the Bento Three further with our cups to make the most of its generous capacity.

The durable Bento Three will save you money and help save the planet. It will also make it so much easier to pack healthy lunches that your kids will actually eat. Lightweight and BPA free, the leak-proof Bento Three means you and your kids won’t have to worry about leaks, smells or soggy lunches ever again!

  • Dimensions – 17.5 x 17.5 x 5.6cm
  • Capacity – 1000ml

Bento Five

The Bento Five has been designed specifically for kids who need a little more variety, featuring five leak-proof compartments so you can mix things up each day. The Bento Five allows you to pack bite-sized portions of nutritious food to tempt ‘grazers’ as well as kids who are usually too busy to eat, so there’s less chance of them going hungry during the day.

The Bento Five is great for fussy eaters too. The individual compartments separate food so they don’t touch and also makes it easy to encourage kids to safely try a small portion of something new. Australian designed, leak-proof, durable and easy to clean, the Bento Five makes it simple for you to pack lunches and even easier for your kids to devour them!

  • Dimensions – 17.5 x 17.5 x 5.6cm
  • Capacity – 980ml
  • Weight – 342g
  • Fits a whole sandwich in one compartment with crusts off and cut into 4
