Bento Beginner Set Giveaway

I often get asked where to buy bento supplies. I've gotten mine in a variety of places including a Japanese Dollar Store in San Fran (my sister got them for me), eBay (mostly from Japan), and a few online shops. I've influenced a few friends started in making bentos for their kids too. Do you want to start making bentos for your child? It's a great way to make sure they are eating healthy plus you can reduce waste by not using baggies and other packaging.
This set contains the following pictured below: plastic bento box (Lock & Lock knock-off), 2 Toast Stamps (I Love You & Let's Eat), a Hippo container, 2 Heart containers, 6 Silicone Food Cups, and a set of Plastic Heart Picks. These items will help you get a good start in making bentos.

This giveaway will run through 11:59pm CST on Friday, January 27th. The winner will be chosen via random.org and notified via email on January 28th and will have 48 hours to claim their prize.
