It’s actually cool to be a kid again. For now, it seems that brown bagging your lunch is a thing of the past. Kids are much more into funky lunch boxes. TV shows, bands, celebrities, emojis, even just colorful images of food on lunch bags are great, but what about fun shapes? Kids would love a Fender amp lunch box, an R2D2 one or even a lunch box shaped like a unicorn. The possibilities are endless. Just imagine, a sandwich shaped lunch box that holds…sandwiches.

Cute sticky notes
