Recently, we wrote about the Yum-Yum Bento Box Recipe Book which then led to a search for cool-looking bento boxes. While most of the food in this cookbook is adorable, certain boys might want their lunches to have more of a macho exterior. The Kotobuki Samurai Warrior Bento Set is one stackable bento box that will appeal to kids who prefer a dose of hi-yah at lunch time.
The way that the samurai’s hat turns into a bowl is very clever. If it were upside-down, though, maybe the bowl could be used as an extra storage compartment for soup. Still, the bowl would be handy as a place to put fruit peels, seeds, or shells from a hard-boiled egg. You will get creative and somehow find ways to make it work. Non-leaky foods could possibly be stored in there, like an apple or a muffin.

LEGO Ninjago, which is a series all about ninja and samurai, is quite popular right now, and it just so happens that this samurai set has characteristics similar to LEGO minifigures. Bonus!
