Adding a little something extra to that lunch box turns into smiles...or even ughs and moans...with these cute jokes.

This is a small but plump booklet, and each page is made to be torn out and shoved into the lunchbox or anywhere else where a child (or maybe even an adult) might be reaching into. The idea of 'giving' a daily joke is simply wonderful, especially since it's not just a joke but the the reminder that someone cares, which really counts. So, this entire concept already won big points in my (and my family's) book.

The pages are thin and made to fold, making them form about an inch and a half square (rough estimate). In other words, these slide easily into even the most stuffed lunchboxes. On one side is a quick, one-lined joke, and on the other is the answer. That's it. Simple and easy and quick.

The jokes are clean and very children friendly. Some are quite clever, while others grabbed everything from 'huh' to eye rolls to 'really?' There are bad jokes, there are obscure jokes and there are simply good jokes. It's a great mixture which doesn't follow a pattern or theme. And there are tons of them to make sure that lunchbox will have one every day for months.

This is a great way to make someone smile (or groan) and to let them know that someone is thinking of them.

And here he is...
