Japanistic is already well known amongst bento fans as a source for well priced bento boxes and accessories, not to mention a lot of other great products from Japan such as stationery, craft items and more. They’re offering a special discount on a very useful bento box set, plus a giveaway prize to JustBento readers. Both feature bento boxes with clear lids and large snap-on plastic side clips. These types of clips are easy to open and close even for little hands, and keep the contents really secure. They don’t require elastic bands to hold them closed - one less item to worry about getting lost.
First up is the special set price for the very cute Addy Drop Back-to-School Package.
It features a single-layer bento box, a small side box, and matching chopsticks. You could use the bento box or the side box on their own of course. The price for the set is $31.45, 10% off the price if purchased separately. The Addy Drop Back-to-School Package can be shipped worldwide.
And here’s the equally cute giveaway prize!
This set consists of a Hobee 1-layer bento box (capacity: 400ml) with large snap-on side clips, and the matching chopsticks. 400ml is a great size for kids, and can be used as a snack bento or side box for people with large appetites.
