Amazing Pokémon lunch boxes are awesome

Moms in Japan have always taken the time to artistically craft their kids lunch boxes with love and care. Usually making it resemble a famous cartoon character or in this case famous and popular Pokémon characters. My friend Frank has maintained a collection of various weird pictures that he has found while cruising the internet and while over at his house the other day I just happened to spot these. While these pictures may not be new to anyone I just had to share them. Anyway hit the jump and take a peek at these deliciously crafted lunches.

[Thanks Frank]

    That Meowth bento looks amazingly filling.

    It’s all really cute (and I would love a Snorlax made of rice, don’t get me wrong), but why bother? Your kid is only going to eat it, so what’s the point?

    I guess the fact that I don’t really like kids all that much doesn’t help my outlook on this, but whatever. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Haha… That’s awesome. The Snorlax one is definitely the best.

    In the two years I was teaching there I never had a middle or elementary school that still allowed the kids to bring their own lunches so I was disappointed I never got to see that sort of thing but that’s cool some areas still allow it. It’s amazing how much effort must’ve gone into those… I assure you the school-provided lunches are not nearly so appealing.

    Pokemon bento…sure beats mystery meat anyday! LOL

    The wrapping paper in the background seems to indicate that these are commercially created, and not just made by parents.

    Wow that is just awesome and my name really isnt fedrix

    @Andrew: I can understand why you would say that, but it’s just a little something to show the kids that you’re thinking of them. It doesn’t really matter if it’s eaten afterward. It’s nice to know that your parents would spend that much time on something seemingly small. It would mean a lot to me, at least. :)
