Back to School Lunches with a little Oopma!

Time flies when you're having fun, but there is no denying it that summer is almost over and it's time to go back to school. Our favorite part of getting excited for school is picking up the necessary school supplies.

One area that kids can really show off their individual personality is with their lunch bags, boxes and backpack's. Oompa.com is a must-stop online shop when it comes to unique, fun, and down right stylish gear.

Recently, we shopped Oompa.com, and picked up this adorable Fleurville kids lunch pak ($31.99). We love it because it's perfect for weekly school lunches, road trips to grandmas, or quick trips to the park. A close second in the lunch department was this cool Crocodile Creek lunch box ($14.99).

There are so many reasons to love everything Oopma.com has to offer. It's also refreshing to purchase from a company that does EXTENSIVE research on everything they sell. Oopma is so much more than just selling cute gear. Each and every product is made sure to be created in humane and safe working conditions by adults and with absolutely no child-labor.

So while getting excited to go back to school might be a task, having the right gear is a no-brainer thanks to Oompa.com

    ReplyDelete
  101. Lunch boxes are always a must for back-to-school. I LUV the 'Apple Lunch Bag from Dabbawalla'...my FAV feature is that it is machine washable. Somehow after a couple months of school, wiping out a lunch box doesn't cut it anymore and it will need to be more thoroughly cleaned...this one can be thrown in the wash and that is perfect!
    OR
    The 'Toddler Run-About Daysack, Red from Little Life' is so cute to get little kids ready for the big-kid transition to school. It is sized right for their body and still styled to make them feel a little more grown up.
