Hello,

I want to pick up a Mr. Bento lunch box but sadly I live in the UK where it is proving a little difficult to track down. I actually own one of the Tiger lunch boxes but it's in storage in Vancouver where I used to live. Amazon.com won't ship here and ebay is coming up dry. Surely I can find one of these in London somewhere. Anyone here have any ideas?

Cheers,
admin

Unfortunately most Mr. Bento sellers on ebay don't ship outside the USA. If you're happy with a Classic Bento or a smaller Zojirushi Bento, you could try to order one of those from a Japanese ebay seller, who does ship to the UK.

Well the annoying thing is that more money is spent per head in the UK on ebay than anywhere else but still I come up with nothing. If I still lived in Vancouver I could go to chinatown or Richmond and get one easily. Hmm.. there must be somewhere in London that sells them.

The shipping is almost the same price as the item itself! Although the exchange rate is really good right now..

Rather than start a new thread, I'll just add here that this group is amazing! Once I get my lunch jar I've got an amazing archive of 2000+ ideas of what to put in it!

Yeah, i had the same problem, living in Spain. What i ended up doing was buy it in Amazon and had a friend who lived in LA ship it over to Madrid.

I know it's not a Mr. Bento BUT if you're in the UK this may be good www.lakeland.co.uk/product.aspx/!11614 I haven't got one but am thinking of it due to difficulty in getting actual Mr. Bento shipped to the UK

How about this item on eBay.co.uk? Or this one?
