    My first lunchbox (early 80s) was a metal Holly Hobby lunchbox. After that the plastic ones became popular. But I always kept the metal one. I loved that thing! Thanks for the contest!

    I always wanted a “Wizard of Oz” lunchbox when I was little. Mom looked for one for me but couldn’t find one. Well, a few years ago I went into this little kitchy shop in Washington, DC, and what did I find? A “Wizard of Oz” lunchbox! You bet I bought it and I use it in my kitchen to store individually packed dried fruit for snacks.

    I remember my favorite plastic lunchbox from back in my school days- a she-ra box! I eventually got a cloth sack lunch bag in florescent yellow, because that’s what all the cool kids were doing.

    My daughter is only in preschool so I dont pack a lunch for her yet, but I plan on putting little pictures in her lunch box next year. Like a little smiley face or a heart or something. My mom did that for me when I was a kid, and it always made my day! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I remember buying a new lunchbox every year for back to school. That was so much more exciting than my later years with a plain brown bag.

    When I was young, my mom would pack peanut butter and jelly on Ritz crackers. It was the only thing I would eat for lunch. I remember wanting a Strawberry Shortcake luchbox but never got one-mine was a hand me down.

    They love sliced apples/oranges! Every now and then I’ll sneak in a candy bar or cut their sandwich in the shape of a heart or star. They get a kick out that. :)

    My son is an incredible boring creature of habit. He’s not in HS and every day for YEARS he’s taken peanut butter on a bagel, some baby carrots, and a few cookies. EVERY DAY!!!

    I remember having a Peanuts lunchbox in kindergarten, then begging my mom to let me buy a Holly Hobbie metal lunchbox when I started first grade. I loved that lunchbox (I think we bought it at Woolworth’s — oh my, I’m old!) My first grader now has a soft sided soccer ball lunch box, and he usually takes a peanut butter and honey sandwich, some kind of fruit, chocolate milk in a thermos, and a couple of cookies.

    For when I was a kid I remember we had glass thermoses and my Mom would sometimes even pack a hotdog in there for me for lunch! LOL It was so funny pulling it out of there! I never did that to my kids and they probably would kill me if I do!

    I use to have one of those metal lunch box that had Strwaberry Short Cake on it. Inside I would have a thermos with the Tang powder drink that I had to add water. My older sister actually used it one time to hit a bully over the head with. Now I understand why we no longer have those kinds of lunch boxes.

    I remember my first lunchbox was a Barbie. It was pink with white hearts. I felt like a little princess. I used to drink from the thermos throughout the day because I loved it so much.

    My very first lunchbox was Holly Hobbie. My mom took a photo of me with my lunchbox on my first day of kindergarten. However, the photo was taken right in front of her see thru liquor/ wine cabinet. Classic! While my mom wasn’t a lush, she was a young mom and 20 yrs old at the time. So we still get a kick out of that inappropriate photo. Myself, Holly Hobbie and Blue Nun!

    My kindergarten lunchbox was Holly Hobbie and it was metal. When I entered the first grade they didn’t sell the metal ones anymore or at least that was what my mom told me and I got a yellow plastic one with Miss. Piggy on a motorcycle.

    I had a Cinderella lunchbox,that I loved.I was so proud to carry it
    around it made me feel like a princess.My mom used to make the best
    tuna fish sandwiches.They were so yummy,my kids won’t eat them.
    They like bologna and cheese or peanut butter and jelly.They
    also like their jello packs or pudding packs.A box of raisins
    or snack pack of fruit and they are happy campers.They don’t like
    the fancy lunch bags,they like the solid insulated ones.I sneak
    goldfish in the boxes and add a note,eat all your lunch please.
    They don’t have a lot of time and I tell them not to share,because
    the school won’t let them and they will get in trouble

    I remember using a care bears lunchbox with a matching drink container. I was happy with my lunchbox but the ones made today are way cooler; some look like cute purses. When I make my sons lunch I try to use dinosaur shapes or make a smiley face.

    I have to get creative. I have to pack my daughters lunch everyday. She is on a gluten free diet, they serve nothing in that way at her school. I have found that the gluten free products are very expensive. I will buy then sometimes, but more often I am thinking of other things to make
