Berry Bento Buddies Set
Not bad but not as expected
I may not have fully read the package labels but in looking at the bento buddies I assumed the two smaller containers (or three really) would fit inside the larger one and the whole unit would close nicely and seal - this is NOT the case. These are fine for separate use but cannot be put together. I also don't feel they seal extremely well - I would not buy this again. I do like the color and size and they fit well into my son's lunch bag. I will keep looking for a compartmentalized (bento type) lunch option though.

Need better lids
I've had this set for about a year and it's held up really well. The plastic has been surprisingly durable, and it's been run in the dishwasher several times. I've never tried using them in the microwave though. The sandwich box can hold a standard wonder bread type sandwich. I didn't use this for my husband's lunches because he usually has a crusty bread sandwich which is too thick for this box. I use the smaller containers for my toddler. They're easy for her to hold and she's learning to use utensils so the height is perfect to keep the food in as she's trying to use a fork. My only issue are the lids. Although I haven't experienced any leaks (I haven't placed any super liquidy foods except for fruit and the juices that might come the fruit), the lids always feel like they're not on even though they are. If that makes any sense...

I love these, they make the lunch making chore so much easier. The sizes are great because they hold the perfect portion size for kids (I have a 8 year old and a 4 year old)

Not exactly what I expected
I've only been using this week, but I have to agree with the other reviews. First, I expected them to all fit nicely inside the big container and they do not. The containers I used prior to this purchase did which is a nice feature. I miss that. Second - the lids do not feel like they are closed securely, but they are... My 6 and 4 year olds have a difficult time opening and closing them.
