Hi! I am Andrea, and if you’re a reader over at No Pattern Required, you’ve probably seen some of my posts. I’ve got a shopping roundup today that will take you right back to the schooldays of the 80’s – and next week, I’ll show you my own 80’s lunchbox collection!
Vintage 1984 GO BOTS MIGHTY ROBOTS MIGHTY VEHICLES PLASTIC LUNCHBOX
Remember Go Bots? I am not sure why Go Bots weren’t as popular as Transformers, but they definitely take me back and are so 80’s!
Original Cabbage Patch Kids Vintage Yellow Lunch Box ~ 1983
My first lunchbox was a yellow Cabbage Patch Kids one – not quite the same as this one, but this definitely takes me down memory lane!
Vintage 1987 ALF Thermos Lunch Box
No 80’s lunchbox roundup would be complete without Alf!
My Little Pony lunch box vintage, with pony
Although there are all sorts of the new My Little Ponies around my house, when I think MLP this is still what I think of first. And this lunchbox comes with a pony! I would have been all over this lunchbox when I was little – I had both the pink and yellow ponies that are on the lunchbox.
Also couldn’t have an 80’s lunchbox roundup without including He-Man!

Yep! He-Man is a must! I actually had that lunchbox AND the My Little Pony one, too!
Nice, Ruth! 🙂 The Cabbage Patch Kids one is very similar to one that I had – I couldn’t find one that was exactly the same as mine online.
I had brown paper bags… but I was insanely jealous of my friend’s Cabbage Patch lunchbox! 😀
I think The Cabbage Patch ones were definitely pretty popular amongst the girls, for sure! 🙂
My Pretty Pony is more vintage than MLP – I had the former.
I had to Google My Pretty Pony – looks like it was only made in 1981, so your lunchbox was probably pretty rare!
1981-1983, yep. Then had the original MPP line dolls later on. Should have been a packrat and saved them, I’m sure!
Yes, considering what original My Little Ponies go for nowadays, I am betting those would be worth even more!
I've got a metal Thundercats lunchbox and I think plastic ones of both Thundercats and Silverhawks. Are you going to do a shopping round up for Thundercats or any of the other major boy-centered lines? I know they made a couple different sets of glasses for them (I have one of them).
