Review & Giveaway: The Lunch Punch

I've wanted to try The Lunch Punch for a while, and I finally got my chance to try them out recently.

When I first tried them, I had a few... problems...
Yeah, I can't tell what it is, either...
I asked some of my fellow lunch bloggers for some tips, and here's what they shared.

1) Trim crusts first.
2) It sometimes helps to roll the bread a little thinner before cutting
3) Cut each slice of bread separately
4) Make sure to push through all the way and wiggle a little on the counter/cutting board, or turn the cutter over with your bread in it, and press all around to make sure that the cutting is complete.

I got better.

The Princess got her face a little smeared with cranberry sauce, but definitely better!!

Once you get the hang of them, they are a ton of fun!  They work really well for peanut butter and jelly (the kids were using them for breakfast all by themselves!  I didn't get any pictures of that, alas...)  They definitely work better for thinner sandwiches as opposed to the Thanksgiving Leftover sandwiches I was making last week...
How Puzzling!

I am really looking forward to playing with them some more!

And you want to know the really cool thing?

One lucky reader will get a chance to play with them, too.

The good people at The Lunch Punch are offering one of my lucky readers the chance to win one set of their choosing!

To enter - please visit The Lunch Punch and then come back here and tell me which set you'd like to have.  I encourage you to "like" them on Facebook, because they are awesome, but I won't make that a requirement.  (While you are at it, if you don't "like" Lunches Fit For a Kid on Facebook yet, you should.  This is also not required, but I love to see you all over there!  It puts a big smile on my face.)
