If you have followed my blog for any length of time you know I have an affinity, or maybe an obssession, for the 80's. I grew up then and loved it. The movies, toys, and pop culture icons were amazing. So when I heard that Netflix was bringing back The Care Bears and The Popples, I was excited to introduce my kids to these symbols of the decade that has brought me so much joy. However, I started thinking about the sometimes forgotten but always important childhood status symbol.

In the 1980's the elementary school lunchbox defined who you were and what you were about. Some kids showed their affection for E.T. while others rocked the Rainbow Brite box. Whatever direction you went with your lunchtime paraphernalia, there were certain lunchboxes that were at the top of every kids' back to school list. In no particular order, here is the definitive list of the top 15 lunchboxes that every 80's kid had to have.
