I am not sure how old this lunch box is, but I am guessing around late 70s. It a metal lunch box made by The Ohio Art Company. I can not find anything on it and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it and how much it might be worth, if anything. Thanks!

    I don't know exactly when this box was made, but my guess is it's 1960s vintage, maybe late '60s. Plastic boxes pretty much replaced metal boxes starting in the early '70s.

    As far as value, my guess is, a box in rough condition, with no licensed character that makes it desirable, has a low value. It's cute though!

    Thanks for the information! It is in rough condition, well used by my sisters and I. Just curious about it!

    I was surfing for lunch boxes of my childhood, and this is my very first lunch box! My mom bought this for me for my first day of kindergarten in 1975. It came with a a red and black plaid thermos with a glass inner liner. I spent many days with PB and J and chicken soup. Purchased in SF Bay area. I hope this helps you!
