2.Skip Hop Zoo Lunchie Insulated lunch bag – These cute-as-a-button bags come in ten animal shapes. With plenty of room, they can hold food & beverage, and they even have a mesh pocket to store utensils, an ice pack or lunch money. Like the design? You’re in luck – these bags coordinate with an entire line of backpacks, plate and bowl sets, lunch bento box containers, etc. Get it at giggle – either online or at their Long Island store.
