It looks like Lock & Lock has released new bento sets in four colors.

Re: New Lock & Lock bento sets on Ebay

Good old Lock & Lock Korea!
I'm guessing you mean these which are available with and without bottles

The reason is that they have more colours and designs - which are new to me at least

(I have a blue/green striped one which is looking quite dated now!)

Drat! I'm sorry I looked at this site - now I'm lusting after a lock&lock baby bento:

WOW! You guys are killing me with all these products. My kitchen cabinets have been overrun with bento stuff. My husband is ready to see a lawyer :)

I have to get the baby locknlock for my 8 month old! Thanks for posting!

Or perhaps you mean these bento boxes with bags:

I am sorely tempted - but the shipping cost stops me from pulling out my credit card. That , and the fact that I have a few bento boxes that I have yet to christen.

Re: New Lock & Lock bento sets on Ebay

Yes, the shipping costs of this seller ARE outrageous ! Maybe the bubble wrap is gilded or something! Lol! I'd love to have one of the older-style sets that were listed today - but I don't need any more boxes either. I already have too many, and I have even more sitting in my cart at Bento and Co. They are for my daughter though (*wink*)

Re: New Lock & Lock bento sets on Ebay

I don't understand why $9 for shipping from S Korea is considered outrageous.

Admittedly I don't read Hangul so can't see the Korean postal prices, but Japan Post does have an English section in their website. It would cost 780yen to send a package weighing 700grams by the cheapest method - about $8.25.
The L&L bento without the consumer packaging I have weighs around 700g. The non gilded bubble wrap and the brand new box would weigh at least 200g. Factor in also the cost of the bubblewrap and that box and the cost of someone's time to make up a label, wrap and send the thing (I'm not forgetting that the yen is stronger than the won) and the shipping charges seem more than reasonable to me. Nobody in S Korea would get rich charging $9 for shipping 700g packages to the USA or UK.

Re: New Lock & Lock bento sets on Ebay

I see your point, Loretta. I do think, generally, places like Bento and Co. and Jbox are a better deal for shipping - at least, I've found that to be the case in my personal experience.
