Back to School: Lunch Box Memories
Do you remember your favorite lunch box? Today's kids have as many options as ever but nothing will take the place of the Partridge Family or Scooby-Doo.
The lunch box is more than a place to put that sandwich, snack and drink, it's a place to let everyone know exactly what you like.
Over the years, the size and shape of lunch boxes have changed just as the designs inspired by TV shows, movies and celebrities have also been updated to reflect the latest hot trends and true classics.
That's why Justin Bieber and Darth Vader and Japanese cartoon characters are staring out at shoppers from the shelves of Target.
Back in the '70s, the lunch boxes were aluminum. In the '80s, they gave way to plastic. Vintage lunch boxes now are highly collectible. They are displayed as collections in people's homes, and sometimes they get their own art gallery shows.
