Is it safe to say that Japanese have the weirdest inventions that shock the rest of the world? Well, sometimes, in a huge pile of these kooky gizmos like silent karaoke, a banana slipcase or a leg pillow for lonely men and a hug-pillow for lonely women, you can find something that can come in handy. Another quirky invention has been named the Bento.
Bento is a box container designated for carrying single-portion homemade or takeout meals. Bento boxes are very useful, and this is why they got so popular all over the world. They are particularly sought-after among housewives and moms, who often pack lunches for their husbands and kids. Some of these women contrived to raise this trivial round to the rank of art. They use the Bento boxes as a canvas and the food as paints to create fanciful images out of the boring meals.
The Bento box art serves two purposes: first – it helps the Mrs. express her creativity and make dull housework much more interesting, second – it helps solve the problem with children’s bad appetite while encouraging them to eat healthy instead of junk food, which usually looks more appealing.
Now then, we present to you some of the most creative Bento box ideas that you may want to borrow:
If your kid is being bullied at school, this lunch box may put an end to all the browbeating.
If your child is into pirates, it’s good to encourage him with a Bento box like these; just make sure he doesn’t smuggle a bottle of rum with it.
Let’s not forget about the little ladies. With a lunch box like this, any girl can easily become the most popular person in school. Well, in primary school, at least.
Since the Super Mario Bros. game was released in 1985, and modern children have a very vague idea of who this mustachioed plumber is, this one is more suitable for husbands. Chances are your man’s boss, who may notice his lunchbox, used to be a crazy video game addict, as were the 99% of kids who were children in the 80s-90s. Who knows, maybe he still has the classic Nintendo console and doesn’t have anyone to play with. Can it be leverage for a future promotion? As for me, yes – but I think I wandered off the point a bit too much.
Alright, back to Bento boxes. Yep, Minions, have become so popular lately, no matter who will be the first one to get hold of this lunch box in your family, they will become the hippest person in the work/school canteen.
I thought I was the only one who had this strange desire to bite Patrick’s hand off. Well, with these Bento box creations, my confederate’s wish will come true.
There are lots of ideas for moms who raise (consciously or not) the geeks who are crazy about anime. But in this case, you run the risk of having your kids hungry because they aren’t able to eat their beloved characters.
For all the other ordinary kids (and adults) who love Disney, here are some of the coolest examples of how you can make a boring meal look like one of your favorite characters. Though you may feel bad after you have eaten Minnie Mouse or Dumbo.
In conclusion, let’s talk about the Simpsons. All the time I suspected the characters of this epic cartoon were made of cookies, because, how else can you explain the yellow color of their skin? For this reason, I always felt like Homer with his constant esurience and avarice. I envy modern kids whose mothers can bring this weird idea of eating these mouth-watering characters to life.
