If you were around back when the original Star Wars films were in theaters, and the popularity was at its heyday, I bet you had a lunch box with Star Wars characters on it. I know I did. For the first three years of Grade school, I made my mom run all over town looking for one of those metal lunchboxes with Return of the Jedi on it each year. I was always bending them on the bus so they wouldn’t close.
Today you can occasionally find those metal lunch boxes in stores for your own kids. If your kids are like mine, metal lunch boxes aren’t cool anymore. I think more kids will appreciate the cool new R2-D2 soft insulated lunch kit. The kit is round and has the domed head of R2 on top with a zipper to keep it closed.
The lunch kit is not that expensive at $14.99 (USD). It measures 5¾” W x 5½” D x 11¼” H and has integrated sounds and LED light effects. At the press of a button, the effects activate. I can only assume it makes all those cryptic beeps we know R2 makes. I wonder how long it will be before your kid gets in trouble with the lunchroom lady for making too much noise with this thing.
