ok, so we thought we were “cool”

carrying our school bags and lunchboxes to school everyday...

of course, those were the days when the words “nutrition” and “organic” weren’t in our vocabularies

and if you dropped your candy or food on the floor, you picked it up,

wiped it on your shirt, and popped it in your mouth...

(the 5 second rule)

carrots and celery in your lunchbox were for nerds

and you always bought lunch on friday, ‘cause it was pizza!...

we’ve assembled a fun selection of character lunchboxes

probably not so much for really using them,*

but as symbols of remembering how bad the cafeteria food really was!!!

fun gift idea:

*fill a lunchbox or bucket or basket with retro candies and toys
