Alien Lunchbox: Back to School ’80s Style

 |  | 

Written by Shane McGlaun | August 30, 2015

Back in the day, like most kids, I didn’t look forward to going back to school. What I did look forward to was finding the most awesome lunch box possible for the return to the classroom. Back then, the lunch boxes weren’t made from plastic or fabric as they are today, they were made from metal and had an even cooler thermos inside.


You were in especially good shape if your thermos actually had a pop up sippy straw inside. I normally stayed with Star Wars or Dukes of Hazzard, but I would have totally carried this Alien lunchbox if I had the choice back then.


This lunchbox made from real tin and looks exactly like I remember lunchboxes being made back in the ’80s. It even has a stamped metal lid to make the Alien egg look 3D. Naturally, the thermos has the cup lid making this a seriously cool throwback to childhood. You can get one for $14.99 at ThinkGeek.

At the school cafeteria, no one can hear you scream.
