What Was Your Favorite Childhood Lunchbox?

I'm not sure if this is the case anymore, but when I was in kindergarten and elementary school, lunchboxes were very important. I had a few lunchboxes as a kid –– but my favorite one was this bulky plastic pink lunchbox with Ariel the Little Mermaid on the front. It was came with a totally sweet thermos.

After second grade or so I graduated (due to embarrassment) to those lame lunchboxes with the flimsy plastic and the pillow-like interior. Later on, however, in eighth grade and into high school those big plastic and tin lunchboxes became cool again – and I had an awesome Lone Ranger vintage lunchbox for some time.

What was your favorite lunchbox as a kid? And if you have kids - do they have a favorite?
