I had a Barbie lunch box while I was in grade school. A few years ago, Hallmark came out with lunch box ornaments, and one of the ornaments was an exact replica of my childhood Barbie lunch box. I knew my original box was long gone, and I asked my husband for one of the ornaments as a token of fond school memories. A couple of weeks before Christmas a package arrived in the mail from my parents. I opened the box, and there inside was my original Barbie lunch box and inside the original was the Hallmark replica lunch box ornament. Thanks mom for always thinking of us.
