Mr Potato Head Bento

We had a good staycation, the best part was the magic show. Our favourite was Dan Sperry, he's really entertaining. We were busy googling for youtube videos on him after the show. lol. :)

Back to the bentos today, I made another character from Toy Story. If you have watched the movie, you will definitely know Mr Potato Head. The boys had fun rearranging his features before eating 'him'. :P

Bento for IT, in the box are onigiri, chicken skewers, bacon rolls, strawberries and grapes. :)

Bento for LT, same food as above.

IT's recess bento, in the box are nutella bread, chicken skewer and grapes. Haha, I know Mr Potato Head is missing his hand in their bentos for School, I left it out just coz I was lazy. :P

LT's recess bento, same food as above, except he had strawberry jam bread. In order to close the box, I shifted the skewers the opposite way. This nicer presentation is for photography purpose, hahaha. :P

lol, I think he looks really hilarious. :D

Jenn from Bento for Kidlet shared where she took her bento photos. I found that interesting, so I thought I'll share mine too. I usually take mine by the window ledge, and here's how messy the set up looks. :P By the way, if you know how to take nice photos of bentos indoor at night, please share with me. I do have an external flash, but I do not like how my photos turn out with it. :(

And this is my 200th post. Hooray! My giveaway post will be up right after this. :)


  1. I love that you said you were lazy. LOL. You made FOUR bentos, mama! :) Love Mr. Potato Head!!!

    1. Lol, Tks Crystal. Lol, coz the hand fr the cutter I had was too big for those 2 smaller potato heads, so I dun want to go through the trouble of making a template n getting out smaller hands. :)

  2. Really nice,the chicken skewers look yummy & your rice characters always impress!

  3. So cute! Hehe - I was actually just about to make a Mr. Potato Head bento as well, but with some cassava cakes. ^^

    1. Wow, great idea, can't wait to see urs. :)

  4. No expert in photography, but maybe you can try a diffuser with the camera flash?

    1. Tks, I do hv a diffuser attached on n I try to bounce of the light ( not sure whether I'm doing it right ), but dislike the unnatural look. :( I still hv till next yr, then I'll hv to pack b4 the sun comes out.
