Lunchbox Review: OmieBox

I have been packing my kids school lunches in an OmieBox several times for the past school year. Now, my kids and I can give you our thoughts on this product. OmieBox is the only compartment style lunch available in the market that is capable of storing both hot and cold food. Perfect for kids who enjoy hot meals for lunch. Pros: Tons of space, each compartment is a whole thumb deep which means you can pack a lot of food to satisfy a big appetite. The handle makes it easy for the kids to carry around without the need to pack it inside another bag. Leak-proof – each compartment is sealed individually, packing yoghurt is possible. Insulated bowl is made of two layers of stainless steel. I pack hot food around 6am and the kids said it still is warm by break time which is around 10am. A slider can give you an additional fourth compartment. Utensils and juice box fit in the longer compartment. Easy to clean. Seal and parts of the insulated …

3doodler start 3d pen review

Getting Creative with 3Doodler Pen

We first saw and got a to try a 3D pen during the innovation week held at one of the malls here in Dubai. Vierte spent most of his time trying out the pen but he needed an adult supervision since the device tip is hot and not safe for kids. Last week, I received an email from the representatives of Precise Group to try out a child friendly 3D printing pen, the 3Doodler Start. Precise Group are the sole distributors in the Middle East. Out of more than 30 things he listed for Christmas, one wish was to own a 3D pen.  I knew that he would be delighted to be amongst the first kid in Dubai to get his hands on this amazing tool. Why we like the 3Doodler Start No Hot Parts. Pen makes use of a special eco-plastic stick which melts at a lower temperature. The pen itself does not get hot and a kid can touch the melted plastic as it is not hot. The 3Doodler pen is lightweight and easy for the small hands to grip. Easy …

DinnerTime ME Summertime Fusilli

A much needed help from DinnerTime

One of the most difficult task I have to do every week is menu planning specially when you have two picky eaters. The past week has been a challenging one – assisting kids with school work, keeping house in order, maintaining the blog and I’m not feeling well. Daddy C offered that he just buy take-out on his way home from office or we could just dine at our nearby shawarma place for dinner.  Take-out food for two straight days make us feel weird and bloated. Tired. Yes, I was just really tired. I was browsing pinterest for new dishes we can try when I got an email from DinnerTime offering us to try their services. The universe heard my plea and sent them to rescue me. Customers have four dinner menu to choose from – Standard, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free and Paleo box. I chose to try the standard box menu. Every week DinnerTime prepare a healthy balance menu which has been approved by their test panel for yumminess. All ingredients needed for the week was delivered in our …

A week with BentGo Kids Lunchbox + Giveaway

It has been 1 month (plus) since school started and I’m still obsessing over getting the kids new lunchboxes and more bento tools for me to play around. I am happy with the existing lunchboxes that we have but found an excuse to but another one because LittleMiss started nursery and want some pastel colored boxes that is only her own. / “That is Kuya’s lunchbox, not mine.” “I want pink, purple or yellow.” I wanted the new boxes to be leak proof and lighter in weight. The search led me to several options and finally settled to BentGo Kids lunchbox. The kids have been using the box for a week now and they absolutely love it, I do too. Follow us on instagram for more school lunch ideas. Let us tell you why. Easy to open and drop proof design, the box has 2 latch that can easily be opened by my 3 yr old and it has rubber coated edges that is great for active kids who tend to always drop things when in …
