100th Bento Giveaway!! ~~CLOSED~~

I can't believe that I'm just three away from Maisie's 100th bento piccie!! I've so enjoyed making simple, easy, sometimes more elaborate but always fun and interesting bentos for Maisie. Seeing Maisie's tastes change and seeing her become more adventurous with food is in large part thanks to making food fun and packing bento. I love the days that she comes home from school telling me that her bento was beautiful or delicious and especially when she tells me that the other children have boring lunches and that she loves her bentos.

To celebrate Maisie's 100th bento I've decided to do a little giveaway to maybe encourage and introduce someone new to bento with a nice little starter kit or to add to the collection of a current bento packer.

So, what's the prize and how to enter??

Everything pictured above is included and it's all brand new in original wrappers. Smiley face seaweed cutter/puncher, Clickety Click triangle monkey case, rabbit & bear boiled egg molds, Clickety Click single tier monkey snack bento box, Clickety Click 2-tier monkey bento box, silicon animal cups, animal food picks, monkey lunch box belt, yellow lunch bag.

To enter for a chance to win via a random drawing:

* Leave a comment on this post which includes your email address and country.
* Post on your blog that you have entered the Maisie Eats Bento 100th Bento Giveaway with a link back to Maisie Eats Bento.

Not required but I'd love to have you become a follower of this blog. See the side bar to become a follower.

Easy peasy.

I should reach 100 bentos by the end of next week so, the giveaway contest will close on Sunday, April 5 at midnight Eastern Standard Time.

Good luck!

Hi. Congrats on the 100th Bento. It's great that Maisie's loves her bentos. Makes the effort worthwhile. Here's to the next 100 bentos.

Noticed all the Clickety Click monkey stuff. Hopefully you managed to get the monkey furikake container.

I'll post about your Giveaway, but don't include me in the Giveaway as the postage to Malaysia will be insane.

Congratulations on your 100 Bento!! I am so glad I stumble on your site and would really love to participate on this opportunity. I have two little boys and always admire those mommy and daddy who made bento for their little one‘s. I never made one yet but I am seriously planning to learn how to make bento lunches for my kid’s. Their fussy eater but I want them to learn how to love eating healthy; maybe a great and cool presentation like bento will do the trick.

I don't even remember how I found you, but tucked you away for when we would have a need of making bentos. The need is still not there (Little Bit is not yet ready for school) but I have found myself making impromptu bentos for her and we are having such fun with them!

Oh, and I am in Washington (USA).

Cheers, Kiy

I'm in Tennessee in the US, and I <3 bentos! My daughter complains about what I cook a lot too, so I know the feeling. At least she's old enough now to realize why I make her eat all sorts of crazy things though. :)

And no offense, but I don't want to leave my email in public... you can comment on my lj if I win. :)

Ooooh, fun stuff - I alreaady Bento for my 3 girls, though my youngest and I eat ours at home. They are so great for park and museum trips! I'm in the US -Iowa. My blog post is here:

Michelle. P.S. Could Maisie have an earache? My middle child has a HIGH pain tolerance, so we didn't know she had an earache until after she'd been waking in the middle of the night for a week and we finally took her in. It's more uncomfortable when they lie down... good luck!

I LOVE Bentos!!! I have a home daycare and find they eat just about anything if I cut it and dress it just right. Everything HAS to be cute! I don't have any of those fun things in your giveaway, so I'm crossing my fingers I win. :)

Hi Lisa, thanks for sharing your experiences with Maisie's bentos. I find it inspiring that the bentos has encouraged yr daughter to be more adventurous with food - as I am struggling how to get my toddler to eat properly. Thanks, and congratulations on your 100th bento, and the ideas. Appreciate it.

I love these. My son would love these too. He is a very picky eater and is allergic to milk and soy protein. I pack every single day, every single occasion because otherwise he pays dearly for it for days. Okay, and I'm that weirdo that doesn't like any of my food touching so these things are perfect. Maybe I'll keep them for me!
