TTT Week 44 Vintage Aladdin Child’s Lunchbox

Summer is hot and sticky here in Georgia but that is the norm for this time of year.

TTT 44 Title

This little red plaid Aladdin lunchbox is absolutely adorable.

Christmas Lunchbox

 So why am I buying things that will be great at Christmas?

Lunchbox full of flowers

 I just can’t help myself but rest assured I will find a use for it before then.

Name Label

  Remember back in elementary school when you had to label everything with your name and address.  This little lunchbox carries its original owner’s name and address.   I’m going to call her little Mary from Minnesota.

Safety First

Inside the top lid there is a safety message with illustrations provided by the National Safety Council and kindly included by Aladdin.

Aladdin Lunchbox with thermos

It has a little thermos that fits into the lunchbox but I don’t think it is original to the lunchbox (its plastic).  I can just imagine little Mary taking some hot soup for lunch on one of those cold snowy school days in Minnesota.

Inside Lunchbox

It is still in good shape for its age never mind a bit of rust and a dent or two.

Vintage Goodness

Love this little lunch box!

Christmas Tea Time

Amazon (not an affiliate link just information) has a new version of this lunchbox for sale but the thermos is larger and you must buy it separately.

    So wonderful! Thank you.

  2. So cute, and that Christmas idea – absolutely adorable (and I think I have all the parts!). I bought one of those lunchboxes from a dealer friend last year, with the thermos, too. Can’t remember right now if my thermos is plastic or not, need to check.

  3. Love it!!! Pinned it right away.

  4. Absolutely darling!

    I actually had that very same lunchbox for first grade (about 1966-7) I still have it minus the thermos-not sure what happened to it. I’d love to find a replacement.

  6. Great finds–love that lunch box! I buy for Christmas now too 😉

    Oh my, I love that lunchbox Sharon! The thermos could be original, they were sometimes plastic. My sis gave me some old Christmas bulbs yesterday that she found at her inlaws home. I love how you’ve displayed them. I have one of those holders. May have to do that this Christmas. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

  8. Adorable! I love the way you styled it so many different ways! I had one of those and sold it! Too bad I didn’t see your post first…I would have kept it!

  9. The red plaid is so classic! I love it with the Christmas décor and also with the clocks. Thanks so much for sharing it with Let’s Talk Vintage this week!

  10. What a sweet lunch box, you were so lucky to find it with a thermos even if it’s not original. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  11. This is so so cute! How wonderful to have a vintage one for Christmas vignettes!

  12. I love your lunchbox, too, Sharon–I posted it on face book 🙂
