Back-to-school season is here. And listen, it’s making me think about the fact that back in the 80s having a cool lunchbox was all the rage. Did we all occasionally hate on them? Sure, but let’s face it, like most things they don’t make them like they used to. Now everything is retro, and so it got me thinking about retro lunchboxes.
Kids today don’t really remember what it was like to have a metal tin lunchbox. You could get a lunchbox with any of your favorite shows on it. I remember all of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ones, the Marvel Superheros, heck I think I even remember seeing a Golden Girls lunchbox at some point. The reality is a “vintage” lunchbox has me deeply into my feelings about childhood.
So, because I just felt like, I decided to hunt down some cool vintage lunchboxes that remind me of those good ole days, aka the 80s. These are mostly those tin lunchboxes with that fun latch on the top we all played with after finishing our lunch before heading outside to the playground. And of course, I knew I needed to find the ones that were going to have all the best nerdy moments from the 80s, so yes there is a Star Wars lunchbox here. Take a trip down memory lane with me, remember those days when we didn’t have to worry about being an adult and how we could just enjoy our schooldays. Here are 9 retro lunchboxes to help bring out the kid in you.
