Mimi the Sardine Lunchbug: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis  The new Mimi the Sardine lunchbag will be a fun way to pack a snack for Lily during Summer activities.


One Lunchbug in Pink Flora and an afternoon snack! About Mimi the Sardine:


“Mimi the Sardine is a small family-owned company located just north of San Francisco. We have been in business since 1988.  We strive to serve our customers well by putting earth-friendly, well-made and meaningful products on the market.

Our world-class Swedish designs emphasize fun, while the quality, durability, and easy care of our fabric make you and our planet happy! Our cotton has a water-based acrylic coating (not PVC). It is permanently water, soil, and mess resistant yet remains soft and supple.”


In order to test this bag, we took it to the park stuffed with a juice box, Goldfish crackers and Cheerios.



We easily fit our snacks for the park in this bag and it was the perfect size for my 4 year old to carry on her own.  I like that it has a zipper closure that not only keeps the contents in the bag, but is kid-friendly.  Of course, Goldfish crackers became smashed inside the bag, but the bag was easily wiped out with a damp cloth.  While I wouldn’t recommend this bag for long trips because it is not insulated, it was perfect for our short trip to the park. 


Mimi the Sardine prides itself on bringing functional, eco-friendly products to the consumer.  Not only do they carry the adorable lunchbugs, but they offer adult shopping bags, tablecloths, and splashmats.  I thought the quality of the lunchbug was wonderful and the design was adorable.  I would consider giving the lunchbug or another Mimi the Sardine product as a gift.
