California Innovations Review

My children love to eat a packed lunch and California Innovations has a line of high quality lunch bags that are perfect for heading back-to-school in style. As a safety conscious mom, I want to make sure that my kids have the best and all of the products from California Innovations is PVC free and meets the Ultra Safe Protection System standards. The lunch bags also utilize Microban which provides antimicrobial protection and inhibits bacterial odors and stains which I appreciate because I have had to replace lunch boxes in the past that were prematurely ruined by odors.

My kids love the fun characters and whimsical styles like the Disney’s Cars “Track Burning Action” zippered lunch bag with a clip handle. My six year old son was captivated by the scene changing technology on this “super cool” (those are his exact words) lunch bag. My four year old daughter loves the Tinker Bell “Pixie Pals” lunch bag that she thinks looks like a “really pretty purse” as she sports it on her arm. This stylish lunch bag is also functional with two zippered compartments for food storage. Jacob, my three year old, literally fell in love with his Arctic Zone Lunch Bag which looks like the most adorable puppy and includes a free reusable matching ice pack. I recently watched a news program today warning of the danger of food spoilage in children’s lunch boxes and it suggested an ice pack as a good option to prevent bacteria growth. This cute lunch box has several compartments for dry and cold food storage. I love the snap-in liner that makes it very easy to keep clean and ready to go on those busy days.

California Innovations makes it very affordable for families to purchase a high quality, stylish lunch bag that kids are sure to be proud to tote to school. When you are purchasing items on your back-to-school list, don’t forget to check out the line of California Innovations lunch bags which are available for purchase at Toys-R- Us, Kmart and
