Ahh the 80's was such a strange yet fascinating era. I had the superman lunch box back in 1984

I had few kind of lunch boxes from pre-school to last year of High school, lol.

Most of my lunchbox were made by Tupperware. No thermos, never had one.

I grew up in the 90s and still had one. My sister has an "I love lucy one" She's had it since she was 12 now 33. Those things last really long!

I had the Wonder Woman tin lunch box when I was in Elementary school. :) I think my brother had the Incredible Hulk tin lunch box.

As I got older I got a red Tupperware lunch box.

My favorite one was a red plaid design with a matching thermos.

Whoa guys.. some of these lunch boxes from the 50's are going for $50+ and a few hundreds on ebay. Some of the ones from the 70's are $9-$30 a pop. Good resale value..

Yeah you guys are lucky.
In my time it's all plastics and thermos. Ninja turtles, he-man, scooby doo and cartoon logos, transformers etc... You guys are the real old school.

Yeah. All thermoses used to have a glass lining between the outside and the inside layers. Sometimes, you could accidently break the glass, and could feel it shaking around inside.
