A rite of grade school passage. What plastic lunch box were you going to be defined by. What do you have in it for currency? For me above any ’80s cartoon franchise I liked, it was always going to be Ghostbusters.
Just a minor problem in 1985 through most of 1986.
I didn’t have a plastic Ghostbusters lunch box made by Thermos. Best to my recollection I didn’t know until years after the fact that their had been an official plastic red Ghostbusters lunch box with the “no ghost” logo on it. In the past I would search, it either didn’t include a Thermal or as expected, it lived a life.
What my family had was plenty of small, brown paper bags. Maybe those insulated zippered or velcro food thingies your parents could always seem to get. That (and age) is why I don’t remember having a lunch box to take to school. I was little, so it was okay.
