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…

The Original Shot Flask

The Original Shot Flask

Drinking is an activity best shared with others. Booze flasks are a portable drinking conveyance meant for one. However shall the two concepts come together?

Enter The Original Shot Flask.

The flask has an 8 ounce capacity and hides a collapsible 2 ounce shot glass that stores directly into the side of the flask.

Finally a way to share without sharing everything. Cheers!

Zing Anything Citrus Zinger

Zing Anything Citrus Zinger

The portable water bottle has become common sight seemingly everywhere. (This would make sense, being portable and all…) The good news is that they offer an easy way to stay hydrated without the need to shell out cold hard cash while on the go. The bad news is water comes in only one flavor.

The Zing Anything Citrus Zinger (aka ZingAnything CitrusZinger) is a go-to solution for making a flavored water solution on the go. Combining a citrus reamer with a water bottle that is designed for portability, the beverage enhancer makes it easy to make your own hydrating concoction. Just screw a citrus half into the base and away you go.

For those that appreciate a little non-citrus fruit in their drink, these guys also make the Aqua Zinger, which is designed to masticate berries, herbs and really anything else that has flavor locked inside. But either version that works for you, really works for you, because don’t forget: refills are free!

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.
