SPACE LUNCH BOXES
Surprisingly, there were few lunchboxes adorned with space themes.
1952 Tom Corbett Space Cadet by Alladin
1954 Tom Corbett Space Cadet by Alladin
1958 Satellite by American Thermos
more slender shape
1960 Satellite by King Seely Thermos
This was a reissue in the more modern shape once King Seely bought American Thermos
1960 Astronaut by King Seely Thomas
Graphics by Golden Book of Spaceflight illustrator John Polgreen
1960 Ed McCauley Space Explorer by Alladin
1961 US Space Corps by Universal
1963 Orbit by King Seely Thermos
Production of this box was quickly stopped due to the unautorized use of a National Geographic illustration.
1969 The Astronauts by Alladin
1977 Space Shuttle Orbiter Enterprise by King Seely Thermos
Note: A photo does not necessarily mean I have acquired the item.
I collect tin toys, wind-up rockets and space capsules, board games, and action toys (helmets, badges, watches).
