Some other considerations:

1. Insulated? Not necessarily, if your usual lunch venue has frig & microwave.
2. Liquids, like soups, require a container with rubber/silicone seal lid.
3. All containers should be designed with good sealing lids. Box-in-box design is almost always a good choice.
4. Arguably, Korea makes the best lunch box products.
5. Be prepared for envious stares from other lunch people gagging on their soggy tuna fish sandwich.
6. Create/plate treats to teach your puppy new tricks.
Come on, Spork. If it is adorable and catches your heart, you know none of that matters! I mean....I found a lunch box once with School House Rock on it. I've carried it....well, I still carry it sometimes.

Thanks, everyone! I didn't know there was so much to think about in buying a lunch box!

I have to put this on my ever-growing project list! And it is not just one anymore, Kathleen! DH has said yes, he would go for one as well. Of course with him there are other criteria such as larger size and insulation, but I have seen these can be taken care of as well.

Spork, I think your Rolling Stones sticker will be just fine.... but you need to find a red box and paint it black first

Multiple decals are a great idea! Spork, to get you started, I saw this picture!

The ice cream cone would be my addition to the Rolling Stones decal!

No, that's an image from a website, but I want to buy a couple. The back of my car says, "Archie" and "Gone Walkabout."
