Rated 2 out of 5 by MaineGirls Beware of monogram
First off, let me say that the actual lunch box is great. Sturdy, well designed, and should last for several years. The monogram, however is a different story. The lunchbox (and matching backpack) are designed so that when the monogram is placed, it goes right through the image. It looks horrible! Major design flaw, L.L. bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BAJH Just the right size but need more colours
This lunch box is just the right size for my grade 3 -8 kids. We would really appreciate more colours without designs and designs for older kids in this lunch box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2boysVA The best!
I LOVE this lunch box! My boys used to have the regular lunch box, but it's a bit small. The flip top lunch box was too big. This lunch box is the perfect size. I wanted to get it last year, but didn't like the patterns. This year, the shark and dinosaur patterns are better. I really wish they had more color/pattern choices though. I see the patterns aren't available right now, but there are a bunch in the stores. I would call customer service, because these lunchboxes are the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaye1226 So good my daughter wants to keep reusing it!
I purchased one of these when my daughter entered daycare at age 3 in 2010. Hers is bright pink w/a butterfly that is smaller than the animals on these new versions and I was able to monogram her whole name of 6 letters in my choice of colors which was a nice option. That aside, I can attest that this lunchbox has been used extensively and as she gets ready to enter 2nd grade, she is okay to keep using it for yet another year. It has held together beautifully through lots of spills and washings. It has been cleaned/soaked in dishwater weekly, and thrown into the washing machine several times for really messy lunch blow outs! The size and flip top opening is a great feature with the Gladware lunch containers I use to keep her lunch items separate. I love this lunch box. My only wish is that this same style could be made in some of the patterns/solid colors that the other lunch boxes come in so I could get one for my teenage daughter (she doesn't want a butterfly or owl on her lunch box). Great buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sweetmarehair Great Lunch box for elementary students!
I bought two of these 2 school years ago. They have been put through it and then some. But, super, super easy to clean, durable, and big enough for my kids lunches. An improvement that I think would be helpful though, have some sort of divider in it for drinks. That being said, its a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bostonianmom My favorite lunch box!
I don't know why people give this item such a low rating just because of the monogramming issue. It's not fair.
The quality of the lunch bag is great! The size is perfect! Stitching, zippers, colors are amazing!
I saw images of other customers' monogramming problems. I agree something wrong with it , but not with the lunch box itself. I love it!!! Great box!

by Imax2 Skip the monogram
I ordered the dinosaur design with my son's name monogrammed, but you cannot see it because: 1) it's the same thread color as the lunchbox and 2) it's sewn right on top of the dinosaur's head. There were no other location or thread options that I was aware of. I would have given this 5 stars because the quality seems very good, but couldn't do it because of the inconvenience of having to return it and re-order without the monogram. Had I known, which I just saw someone had written a review about this same exact problem, I wouldn't have gotten the monogramming. I called customer service and they claim that I can return it for free and receive a full refund. Crossing my fingers they don't let me down...

by LLBeaner0618 Do NOT Monogram
Received this lunchbox in the mail today- couldn't find the monogram on it. They used - and it is the ONLY option - the same color thread as the dinosaurs head for the monogram and put it right on his head. Unless you hold it up to the light and twist it just right you can't see it at all. The lunch box seems like it will be a good one for my son, but, at least with the T-Rex bag, skip the monogram!! ( see photo- can you find the monogram? It is monogramed N8 (for Nate) because they would only allow three letters.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 Love this!
Cute nice size lunch box for either the beach in summer, your work lunch, a school lunch,etc.......to use every day! It's a nice size........NOT too big, and not too small. Can fit a sandwich and a few snacks and an ice brick to keep your goods even colder. I took this to the beach the other day and used an ice brick in it. It was hot out and it kept my sandwich cold so I know it's well insulated. I love the outside pocket where I put my napkins in. Or even small change. The inside mesh pocket I used to hold my juice sandwich so it wouldn't crush. I got the one w/the dragonfly on it and love it! Nice design!! !This is a GREAT size lunch box for the right price. I would recommend it to Any who wants to have a nice looking lunch box that keeps their food COLD, for a great price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyinNoVa Sturdy and cute
We've quite a few of these lunch boxes over the years with six kids and we've loved them all. Despite my best efforts to wash them out by hand, they used to get really stinky (leaky milk bottles, crushed Goldfish, you name it!), but I figured out that popping them in the washing machine with a bit of detergent, washing soda, and a splash of bleach makes them good as new! Good news for us, but it means I won't have to replace the ones we currently have!
