CuteZCute Animal Palz Review

I received my latest order from affiliate Bento USA a few weeks ago and still haven't had a chance to play with all my new toys tools. But the one that got busted out before anything else even got looked at was the Animal Palz set from CuteZCute.
Can you see why I couldn't wait? Simply adorable!
This is what you get. Instructions on the back - images *and in English*!
Inside you get the 4.5 stamps, the back plate a press and a cutter.
I got all excited thinking I'd get 4 little sandwiches out of a piece of bread. . . 
It didn't really work though.
I could get two good & two dodgy pieces from each slice of bread, so the dodgies ended up on the bottom of the sandwiches.
This was the other slice.
And because it was just before Halloween I thought I'd use the bat. They don't quite fit into my sandwich container either, but then again, neither does a full sandwich.
You may recognise these from my Count Duckula lunch
You will have to check out my guest post on BentOnBetterLunches today to see what Monkey Business these little guys were up to :-)
Added bonus! This is an egg mould too!!
The first time I used it for a mould I got waylaid so left it in the fridge overnight. I'm not sure if that's why it stuck & the egg fell apart like it did. Lucky I had a spare boiled egg in the fridge still in its shell. I peeled it & left it in a mug of boiling water while I prepare the rest of the lunch. That one worked beautifully! 

  • Mutli-tasker! Sandwich cutter, sandwich press, egg mould, rice mould. I'm sure there will be other uses I discover as time goes by
  • BPA Free
  • Dishwasher safe (top rack)
  • Easy to follow image guide with instruction in English
  • Brilliant how to videos available here
  • Apparently it's freezer safe!
  • Can also be used as a food cup/divider
  • Multiple characters in one pack
Loving a little less, but liveable:
  • You can only mould one egg at a time. I realise this is the case with other egg moulds too, but I like to batch boil my eggs & leave some in the fridge in the moulds for use later in the week. 
  • There's a bit of waste if you want nice neat pocket sandwiches
A great little starter pack. If you weren't sure whether or not little Johnny/Susie would go for shaped sandwiches or eggs etc, this would be the perfect set to get to experiment with - even if you ended up using it as a simple cookie cutter and press. I'm sure you'll be seeing more Animal Palz in our lunches in the future.

Details of my tools & toys can be found on this page.
