Excitement, adventure, the thrill of the chase, the joy of a find, the disappointment of a miss. All of these emotions belong to any collector, including the collector of Lunch Boxes! Lunch Boxes are relatively new on the scene. They came into use about the time television created popular heroes to emulate. Children had to have their hero on their Lunch Box! We gave those Lunch Boxes hard service and when our hero went off the air, we found other heroes. Most lunch boxes went on to the next child in the family or were discarded. Today's collector enjoys the challenge of finding these long unappreciated works of art. Some like the historical value."I had one of these when I was a kid!" Some because they rode a stickhorse with Hoppy, Roy and Annie; or they leaped tall buildings with Superman; or they were Snow-white waiting to be kissed by a prince. It may be for artistic value, "the design is superb...so detailed!"; Or it may be for return on investment, "I can make lots of money!"; or a host of other reasons. There was a time when Lunch Boxes were almost never found in antique shops. They were not considered collectible by dealers. Times have changed!!! You can go to the biggest or smallest antique shows and you'll always find Lunch Boxes. This book is designed to help both the new collector and the seasoned veteran in the style, manufacturer, year and approximate value of metal Lunch Boxes produced in America from 1950 to 1987. Look up a special find, a prized keepsake, or read it just for fun.

Very good

I just started to collect and enjoy lunch boxes this year. This guide has been very helpful in my hunt. I'm on a very tight budget and been able to make purchases of lunch boxes without paying too much for the items, as was the case of my first purchase of a lunch box. Of course I did not have the book. I ended up paying $70 for a "Magic Kingdom" lunchbox. After getting the book a couple of weeks later, it was probably a bit too much to pay. But I learned. Also with the book I've made it a challange to myself to find lunch boxes that are not in the book. It's a lot fun just to search for lunch boxes and having Mr. Aikins book is like having a friend along for the hunt.

Believe me, once you start looking at this book, you just can't put it down! I never knew they made so many metal lunchboxes throughout the years. Oh, I had a few when I was a kid in the late 50s and I'll always remember my mom not letting me have the matching optional thermos. She was so afraid I would be careless and drop it, breaking the fragile glass liner. I was a responsible 9 yr old after all. I always envied a kid who had a Roy Rogers dome chuckwagon lunchbox. That was so cool! Even when the lunchbox was empty, somehow it retained the odor of all the peanut butter and jam sandwiches wrapped in wax paper, that I carried in it every day. And the metallic sounds in the cafeteria of all the lunchboxes being opened and after, being latched up again. This book is bound to have the box you had as a kid so I recommend it not only for nostalgic reasons, but as an invaluable source and guide for the lunchbox collector.

This 218 page, 5 x 8" softbound book is ideal for taking with you when you shop for these collectibles. It's packed with more than 500 full color, sharp pictures of every type of lunch box and thermos imagineable. Great photos ! There's not too much informative copy included, but there's great depth of coverage. At the back of the book there's an Index, Price Guide, and Inventory section that is very useful. A Must Have for lunch box collectors.

I had borrowed this book and my dog chewed about 20 pages off the back. I was able to piece it all back together, but felt I needed to replace it with one in better shape. That is the reason I ordered the book. For myself, I would have ordered one that was more current.
