Take Disney’s Star Wars R2-D2 And C-3PO To Lunch

Star Wars R2-D2 C-3PO Tin Dome Lunch Box Workman Carry All Lunchbox

Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, we will probably be seeing a bunch of new toys and collectables featuring the well-known characters — along with other characters under the massive Disney umbrella.

Expect to see forthcoming Star Wars merch with Space Mickey peeking out from behind some space rocks. Perhaps Princess Leia will find a home in Sleeping Beauty Castle. I wonder how they’ll work in poor Pluto…

As the Grand Marshals now and forever of any Main Street Electrical Parade, R2-D2 and C-3PO deserve their moment in the spotlight. The Star Wars – R2D2 & CP30 – New Tin Dome Lunch Box honors the mechanical men in a classic pre-Disney setting. There may not be any Disneyland park mascots on the lunchbox now, but just like how George Lucas re-invented the past, we should be seeing Captain EO flying in any time now…

Doctor Who Tardis Lunch Box Packs A Big Lunch

Doctor Who Limited Edition TARDIS Tin Tote Lunch Box

By some wonderful quirk of quantum televisionary, the Tardis from Doctor Who happens to be bigger on the inside than its outside should allow. Sounds like whatever technology that powers the time-traveling space ship has something in common with appetites. Say, like when your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

The Doctor Who Limited Edition TARDIS Tin Tote Lunch Box understands. Appearing to the rest of the world as an ordinary lunch box made to look like an old-timey blue police box, the collectible tote travels at your side and supplies sustenance whenever you shall need it. Because chances are even if you forget to pack enough lunch, there will still be something to eat in the pantry — it’s just past the swimming pool and the art gallery.

Take R2D2 To Lunch

Thermos R2D2 Novelty Lunch Kit, Star Wars with Lights and Sound

Robots don’t eat much. However, that doesn’t mean they don’t make for excellent dining companions — especially when they carry your lunch. The Star Wars Thermos R2D2 Novelty Lunch Kit with Lights and Sound looks to not only lend a helping hand (or perhaps, some fancy retractable gadget), but he also apparently supplies mood lighting and pleasant conversation. Or beeps and whistles as the case may be. But no worries if you don’t understand the little helper, at least he won’t be talking with his mouth full!

I Am A To Go Cup

I Am A To Go Cup from DCI.

I am not sure what I like best about this I Am A To Go Cup design. First off, there is the name. No mistaking what this thing is. Then there is the little liquid container that screws into the cap. Clever. One can keep wet ingredients away from dry. Then, to top it all off, it comes with its own fork – and the kicker is that the cap acts as a utensil rest to boot. Nice design all around. Perfect companion for that paper cup that isn’t — just keep it straight which one is which.

Burger In A Bento Box

Hamburger Bento Lunch Box

This two-tier Hamburger Bento Lunch Box would make for a nice way to transport a cheeseburger. Put the burger on the bottom and the buns on the top and by lunchtime they won’t be a soggy mess. Or put rice and veggies in it like you are supposed to, but that wouldn’t be any fun now, would it? It is a burger lunchbox after all.
