Fun Bites Review & Giveaway ( Part 2 Luv-It)

 I introduced you to my FunBites Cube-It in this previous post and today I'd like to introduce you to Luv-It. . .and I do!

I purchased the Cube-It cutter from Lunch Boxes with Love a few months ago & FunBites were kind enough to send me a Luv-It to try as well.

As the basic features of sturdiness, size, weight, rocking cutting action are the same as the Cube-It, I decided not to repeat myself & instead, just take lots of pretty pictures.

Regular bread
With the silly season & moving house this is the first real chance I've had to play with my new toy.

As you can see the overall size is still a little off from being a perfect double-fit with the bread I tend to use, but there are opportunities to cut extras and get creative.

The first sandwich I did ended up being all bundled in together as we rushed out the door on errands for the morning. When we arrived at the park Miss M & I had a great time creating shapes from all the pieces, but I forgot to take any photos, sorry :-(

Did you ever do Tangrams at school? I remember loving them! Well, they are a puzzle after all :-)  While the shapes you get from the Luv-It aren't quite your traditional Tangram shapes, you can certainly have a good time re-creating some classic characters.

And sturdy! Check out the carrot & celery I cut below, and the apple that Erin cubed over at Feeling a Little Lunchy. I must admit I think Anna's carrot hearts at Becoming a Bentoholic a bit prettier than mine :-)

If you missed the nitty gritty of my review last week, here it is for you:
One technique I've heard of but haven't tried yet is to prepare your sandwich with the top slice of bread removed. Cut the top slice, then with this still in the cutter, cut the base of the sandwich. To be honest I didn't really have any issues cutting the sandwich made whole anyway, but thought I'd pass on the tip (thanks to Cristi at Bent on Better Lunches for that one)

* Possibilities limited only by your imagination
* Dishwasher safe (although hand washing is recommended)
* Sturdy & solid
* The popper piece!!
* Suitable for use on a wide variety of foods
* BPA free
* Creates perfect little bite-size pieces
* NEW LOVE - these cutters are symmetrical making it easy to flip & swap pieces across multiple lunches

Loving a little less, but liveable:
* Hand washing recommended (although you can wash in the dishwasher)
* The overall size is too small for our regular bread, but too big to get two full cuts out of a slice

I can see us using this cutter a lot this year, and not just for sandwiches. Fruit and cakes/slices would work beautifully with this and they make brilliant toddler bite sizes. So quick & easy to cut such a great range of foods. I love the Cube-It and Luv-It and thanks to the wonderful people at FunBites you have the chance to win one all for yourself!
