Collections include Dinosaurs, Mermaids, Unicorns and Pirates in Rachel’s instantly recognisable style

Thermos UK has teamed up with popular children’s stationery and greetings card designer Rachel Ellen to create a fun new range of food and drink containers.

Rachel’s four cute children’s collections for Thermos UK are instantly recognisable in her iconic style – Dinosaurs, Mermaids Unicorns and Pirates. Each collection includes a FUNtainer Bottle, a FUNtainer Food Flask and a Lunch Kit for carrying packed lunches. Also, because it’s Thermos, the flasks and bottles come with a five-year guarantee demonstrating their high quality – particularly useful when they’re being thrown around in school bags!

The 355ml FUNtainer Bottle is BPA free with a stainless steel interior and exterior. It has a hygienic pop-up straw and uses Thermos’ 100 years of vacuum storage expertise to keep drinks cool for up to 12 hours. RRP is £20.

The FUNtainer Food Flask helps keep food hot or cold, so youngsters can enjoy a fresh, nutritious and safe lunch on the move or at school. With a 290ml capacity and wide mouth, it’s easy to fill and eat from directly. Made of stainless steel, it’s great for keeping hot food like soup or spaghetti warm for five hours, or cold food like pasta salad cool for seven hours. The outside of the flask remains cool to touch, with no messy condensation. RRP is £20.

The Thermos Lunch Kit provides a handy cool bag to transport packed lunches, made of durable easy-clean fabric with heat sealed linings. In the four colourful designs, they’re sure to be a big hit with little ones. RRP is £15.

Rachel Ellen Designs was founded in 1997, when Rachel retired from a career as a professional ballet dancer and started hand painting greeting cards at her kitchen table. Rachel commented: “I’ve grown up using Thermos® products, as my parents and grandparents did before me. I was therefore delighted to collaborate with such an iconic brand and use some of my best-loved designs to bring a children’s range to life. Everyone loves a fun food and drink container – kids and adults alike!”

Nick Kime, MD at Thermos UK, added: “Children have always loved having cool ways to transport their lunch and drinks, which is why for almost 20 years we have been selling our popular FUNtainer products here in the UK. These latest designs from Rachel are really eye-catching and fun but, importantly, they also help keep food and drink hot or cold as needed, giving busy parents many more options when packing foods for their children.”
