It’s such a HOOT when we can start with a HONK! The “kyara-ben” (character bento) never goes out of style, especially if you’re a kid bringing one to school to show off to your friends. Our Japanese style bento lunches are easy to make, nutritious, delicious and packable in our tuff and thermal Lunch Jars. Make one of these and create some unforgettable BTS memories for your family. Trust us, it’ll be fun to make, and even more fun to eat!!
