All lined up

The kids are on the playground after lunch. And waiting for them is a colorful array of lunch boxes. No more brown paper bags or metal boxes emblazoned with TV stars. Now it's all insulated with no sharp corners. Safety is our No. ! priority
what a great idea for the theme---wonderful picture! I do miss the kids having the old-fashioned lunchboxes though!!

Love your photo. And its so true. My granddaughter, who is in the 2nd grade, has a lunchbox that looks just like a purse. She also has a 2nd one similar to some of the ones in your photo.
I have a collection of vintage metal lunchboxs with HollyHobby picture scenes on them ( one for each season). I guess none of today's kids would even consider actually using one of them.

Fabulous capture of organization at school!

Since I have 2 (grown) sons, our vintage lunch boxes are HE -MAN (Masters of the Universe) and GI JOE...much more fun than today's "lunch boxes" even if they did not keep things cold!

Love the photo of "todays" lunch boxes! It reminds me of my Fat Albert lunch box.

Oh ya, Allison ~ I love how you left the lunch boxes in color and black and white with every thing else. Awesome.

Really like this shot. But, at first I thought they were suitcases:) Really, lunch boxes? Do the kids have to take lunch to school from home? Here in Finland school provides the lunch (warm food, salad, bread, milk, dessert which can be fruits or something). And it's free. But those lunch boxes are very pretty. And I like the selective coloring.

Really?! I suppose once the girls grew up, I never gave lunch boxes another thought...obviously I'm living in the dark ages! I wouldn't have recognized these...but aren't they fancy! (And they're so tidy looking!)

Goodness.... those bags are huge! They're like suitcases! A plastic box in my schoolbag, or a metal tin .... and it stayed there getting warmer and warmer through the day! And if you forgot to bring home your box then it was indeed a paper bag with very, very flat sandwiches by lunchtime!

Much more safe minded now days to keep things at their proper temperature.

@monna The school does offer a lunch program http://365project.org/allie912/365/2010-02-04
but about 20% choose to bring their lunch from home. I'm guessing for some it's a financial decision.

I still use one of the metal ones! My kids got it for me a couple years ago; it's Peanuts.

Good shot!

I must add that I read your library newsletter and enjoyed it very much - very professional and informative :D

Yes, lunches have changed as well. Great idea for a picture!

Lunch boxes sure have changed! Those metal ones could leave a knot on your head if someone 'bumped' you with it! Clever shot for the theme, too!

nice shot, allison. i don't care much for lunchboxes with movies stars in them, but i do like the safety features. this is great for the theme.
posted September 26th, 2010  
Allison, thanks for the explanation. I guess I'd choose the lunch box too. Nothing better than home made food.
posted September 26th, 2010  
great shot for the theme, I like all there colourful lunch bags

Great idea for a picture! It's gotta be fun for the kids to choose their own lunch-boxes before school starts for the year.
