Zoku® presents Neat Bento™ Jr., a colorful new child-sized lunchbox designed to get kids excited about eating.
It features a kid-friendly latch and 2-in-1 optimized storage areas, with an easy-to-pack divider to separate components of a balanced meal. It also comes with a separate storage container and lid that fits in the lower section. Neat Bento Jr.’s compact design makes it convenient to place into a backpack or bag.
Its modern color palette features blue and turquoise with a lime green latch – or lavender and purple with a turquoise latch. A child’s name can be written on the outer latch with a felt-tip pen for quick identification.
Portable and compact, Neat Bento Jr. is 6.8 by 5.0 by 2.0 inches – just the right size for kids from preschool through grade school. It is dishwasher safe and easy to clean, for everyday convenience.
This neat new design was inspired by the Japanese bento box, which organizes a balanced meal in an aesthetically pleasing way. The word “bento” comes from the Japanese word for “convenient.”
Zoku® transcends the traditional lunchbox with Neat Bento™, a contemporary design that inspires limitless lunch ideas by adjusting to a variety of menu options.
This compact box is leak-proof, with kid-friendly latches and a soft-touch carrying handle. The set includes a dual compartment tray and two repositionable containers with lids (2-cup and 5-cup). It also comes with a cooling pack, which can be stored in the freezer and then inserted in the bottom of the tray to keep food cooler longer.
The containers fit snugly into the tray, which prevents sliding during transport. Gaskets provide a water-tight seal and prevent leaks between compartments. Neat Bento can be customized to suit any taste, from picky to adventurous eaters.
The new Neat Bento set is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Compact design and the soft-touch handle make it easy to carry or place in a backpack.
Neat Bento adds a contemporary twist to the traditional Japanese bento box that was designed for nutritionally balanced and aesthetically pleasing meals. The word “bento” comes from a word meaning “convenient.”
Bright colors add to the appeal of Neat Bento, which comes in pink with lavender and light pink accents, or turquoise with blue and yellow. The container is 8.7 by 8 by 2.5 inches.
Zoku® presents the Pocket Straw, a modern reusable straw made of 18/8 stainless steel, with a silicone mouthpiece for comfort when sipping. Collapsible and compact, it ties in with contemporary trends and exemplifies the attention to design detail for which Zoku is known.
The Zoku Pocket Straw telescopes in and out for easy storage and transport on the go. When fully extended, the stainless-steel straw is 9 inches long. It collapses to less than 4 inches and fits inside a small protective carrying case for sanitary storage. Both the straw and case are dishwasher safe and the set includes a small brush for thorough cleaning of the inside of the straw on the go. A loop on the lid of the case makes it easy to carry and can be used to attach this lightweight accessory to a key ring, belt or backpack. The Pocket Straw comes in Teal, Berry and Charcoal, for color choices from bright and bold to classic neutral.
Zoku’s Pocket Straw ties in with consumer trends including all-day hydration for a healthy lifestyle as well as increased environmental consciousness. Plastic and paper straws are increasingly associated with unnecessary waste and/or avoidable negative environmental impacts. The Pocket Straw provides an easy and convenient way to make the switch to reusable.
Zoku® presents Neat Stack™ food storage containers, a new design for taking meals or snacks to work, school or on the road. The product name was inspired by their neat waterproof latching lids and by the way they stack and nest for space-saving storage.
