11 Lunchboxes That Will Take You Down Primary School Memory Lane

While you’re stressing about quinoa salads and exactly how many pieces of fruit will sustain you throughout your day at work, do you ever think back to a much simpler time? A time when it didn’t even matter what was in your packed lunch – it was what your lunchbox looked like that really counted.

It was a bonus if your flask matched the design, too.

If you haven’t thought about it in a while, let’s take a look at some of the absolute best lunchbox designs that were out there when you were a kid.

1. Barbie

Have you ever seen someone dressed in a more 90s looking oufit than this? Barbie has always been an icon, and if you were a fan you NEEDED this lunchbox.

2. Beauty and the Beast

When the 90s first began, Disney movies were the absolute bomb. That meant you had to show which Disney film was your favourite by sporting the design on your lunchbox, of course.

3. Bucky O’Hare

And then there were the lesser remembered cartoons of the 90s – such as Bucky O’Hare. But if you did know about it, it was always super cool.

4. Care Bears 

Care Bears were massive back then – with their own TV show, movies, and merchandise, we still remember these adorable critters fondly today. Did you own this lunchbox and matching flask? Then you were the most awesome kid in school.

5. Jurassic Park

Were you a dinosaur lover as a kid thanks to this movie? I know I was. Whether you were a fan of the classic t-rex, the velociraptor, or the triceratops – there was a lunchbox for that! This photo shows the t-rex one, which was probably the most wanted.

6. The Lion King

Another popular Disney movie, The Lion King! If you too thought ‘hakuna matata’ was a wonderful phrase, you just had to get your paws on this lunchbox.

7. The Little Mermaid

And yet another Disney movie! It seemed like no matter which one was your childhood obsession, there was a lunchbox for it.

8. Polly Pocket

If you loved these little mini worlds and the tiny figurines it came with, then you probably wanted the lunchbox too.

9. My Little Pony

Way before ‘bronies’ tainted the innocence of these poor little ponies, they thrived in Pony Land and made this lunchbox perfect for any pony fan.

10. Spice Girls

Even if cartoons weren’t your thing (somehow) then you could always have a lunchbox with your favourite 90s pop legends on the front. You wanted this more than you really really really wanted a zig-a-zig-ah.

11. Transformers

The only way that this lunchbox could have been improved upon was if it actually did some transforming tricks of its own…
