You might remember Aladdin lunchboxes from your school days–they were ones with comic book, cartoon and TV characters on them. While the company is no longer cranking out those iconic boxes, Aladdin is on a mission to make lunchtime fun again. They’ve launched a new collection of to-go containers that are so stylish and functional that you—and your kids—will never want to skip lunch. So when you hit the stores for back-to-school shopping, you may want to add these to your list:
The classic deli container is reinvented with to-go-friendly features: It’s leak-proof, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe and won’t stain. It’s also double-insulated, so the base stays cool to the touch after reheating. The container comes in two colors, lettuce and tomato (pictured above), and two sizes, 12 oz. (pictured above, $12.99) and 24 oz. ($14.99), which has a divider.
These containers are a step up from resealable plastic bags for holding pretzels, chips or granola. The hard outside protects snacks from getting squashed. When it’s empty, collapse it for easy packing and storing. The snack container comes in two colors, sky (pictured above) and strawberry, and 12-oz. (pictured above, $5.99) and 24-oz. ($6.99) sizes.
This mug has a flip lever that opens and closes with a quick press, making it easy to single-handedly sip drinks on the go. The vacuum and insulated stainless steel design ensures that drinks will stay hot for at least 6 hours. The mug comes in two sizes, 12 oz. (pictured above, $19.99) and 16 oz. ($24.99).
Mix-It Cold Tumbler, ($14.99)
Sugar settled at the bottom of your iced tea? Didn’t have time to properly mix chocolate syrup with milk? No problem! Fold the straw down to spin the mixing paddle, then flip it up to drink. The tumbler comes in two colors, sea and lime (pictured above).
Water Vessel, ($8.99)
These vessels look like regular water bottles, but they have a special feature that make them stand out. The cap twists off for sipping, but the bottle also opens with a wider lid, so you can add ice to keep your favorite beverage nice and cold. The water vessel comes in two colors, tidepool and violetta (pictured above).
