Elastic and lettering didn't come as pictured; hard to wash
on November 5, 2013
Pros: very cute, my kid likes it, the compartment that is supposd to be watertight is watertight, it's sturdy, the parts that are supposed to be microwave-safe seem to really be microwave-safe.
Cons: Headband didn't arrive with cute eyebrows as shown! Also the words "Panda etc etc." shown on the bottom compartment aren't there. False advertising! Aside from that, it's annoying to have to handwash the lid of the watertight compartment everyday. It also isn't made of an easy plastic to get grease off of, so sometimes I have to wash it several times. The groove around the edge of the lid is also very hard to reach into to wash; you have to use a toothbrush or something small to fit in there. Finally, it is very easy for a child to lose the elastic, so buy some extra elastics. (I only found some from other companies, so they aren't the same as the original, but at least they work. A rubber band also works fine, but isn't as cute.)
Edit: After half the school year, the paint on the panda's face on the cover has scratched, and the bottom of the top layer has cracked in the dishwasher.
