Oyako Bento is a set of two boxes: one big (mom or dad) and one small (the baby). The boxes can be stacked and carried together, held together by the elastic bento belt, which is included. They can also be used alone - the baby goldfish box makes a great sidebox for other bento boxes, and the parent goldfish box on its own is perfect for those with smaller appetites. Also, the baby box can be put inside the big box for compact storage.
Oyako means "parent and child", kingyo means "goldfish" and demekin means "pop-eyed goldfish" in Japanese.
The baby goldfish box has a removable inner container.
These boxes are so striking that they have already been featured in two French bento books!
2 colors available:

- Oyako Kurodemekin: black boxes with a beige and orange design on the outside and black on the inside.
