Transformers Bumblebee Bento Lunch

Monday, February 23, 2015

I am so excited to show this lunch. I have been a huge Transformers fan ever since I was young. I remember creating massive battles pitting Optimus and Grimlock against Megatron and Soundwave. I always lusted after the Constructicons, however. I collected a few of them but was never able to acquire them all and combine them together to make Devastator, but I digress. 

I had the opportunity to attend and speak at the Dad 2.0 Summit in San Francisco this past weekend. There were many important conversations on fatherhood (and many fun times as well). One of the sponsors was Hasbro and they gave away a few toys from their Transformers Robots in Disguise line. These toys transform but also sync with a fun video game app. I brought the toys home and my kids were instantly enthralled. I was happy to relive my childhood through them playing with Bumblebee, Sideswipe, and Grimlock. 

I had no choice but to make a Transformers lunch today to celebrate. I chose Bumblebee because he is one of my kids' favorite characters. I modeled him after the new Hasbro line but I also tried to make the words and autobot logo as close to the original as possible. I used my kids' new Planetbox Launch lunchbox to create it in. Below is the recipe. Please visit all my social media sites so you don't miss out on much more parenting news, articles, and ideas!

Grape tomatoes
Blue fruit snack (for decoration)
Whole wheat bread
Flour tortilla
Wowbutter (peanut free spread) and jam
Babybel cheese
Dried blueberries
Lemon wedge
Black marker


1. Slice the end off of a banana and use it for Bumblebee's head. Use a middle banana piece for his chest and then cut another piece long-ways for his shoulders. Stick in toothpicks to hold it together. 

2. Draw the black facial and body features with a marker. Also, rub a lemon wedge on the exposed banana to keep it from browning. 

3. Slice a blue fruit snack in pieces and stick it to the banana for decoration. Repeat
for Bumblebee in car form as well. Place in main dish and surround with grape tomatoes. 

4. Make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. Use other fillings if desired. Cut the "Transformer" letters out of a flour tortilla. You can paste them to the top of the sandwich using a dab of peanut butter or cream cheese. I used a slice of strawberry to stand in for the Transformer logo. Place in side dish.

5. Cut large red wax circle from one side of a Babybel cheese round. Remove and use a sharp knife to cut out the details of the Autobot logo from the circle. When finished, place back on to the cheese. Arrange with dried blueberries or raisins in second side dish. Serve to your kids to achieve instant hero status!
