15 Totally Tubular Lunch Boxes All Cool 80’s Kids Had

The elementary school cafeteria is a place where little kids first learn to barter and trade. Learning how to upgrade your snacks, sandwich and dessert with fellow classmates is an important skill to have. For those of us who were stuck with boring carrot sticks and apple slices, our classroom cred was somewhat limited. The only way to save face was to have the coolest most desired lunch box in the whole school.
