MB Tresor

This compact is BPA-free and pretty darn safe (microwave, dishwasher and freezer). What we love the most? The fact that we can pick the color of every part of the box, from latch on the outside down to the containers that stack inside. Your kids customize it even further by swapping between fun decals.
