Every family seems to have a special way of slicing sandwiches for kids' lunches. Sometimes, it involves removing crusts. Other times it's a question of cutting sandwiches into "fingers." The Critter Cutters offer a way to pack your kid's lunch with extraspecial sandwiches. The cutters cut animal shapes in sandwiches: a butterfly, a dog, elephants, and dolphins. You're not just cutting a shape out of the center of a sandwich, either. The shapes take up a full sandwich, while still creating a sliced sandwich that is easier for little hands to pick up. The cutters are only a bit smaller than the size of an average piece of bread, trimming off the crusts but minimizing waste even with kids who won't eat crusts. The Critter Cutters are also taller than cookie cutters so you won't have to squish the sandwich in order to cut it.
The Critter Cutters are made from ABS food-grade plastic (certified BPA, lead, and phalate-free) and can go through the dishwasher in between lunches. They can even be recycled in the event one breaks. Spoon Sisters, the company selling the Critter Cutters, also offers sandwich cutters in puzzle shapes. The Critter Cutters cost $16.95.
