Here are some of my favorite school supplies from the 1970s and 1980s. You already know about my love of the Trapper Keeper, but here are a few super cool school supplies that rocked! Remember any of them?
|The 1970s Peanuts lunchbox was a hit with kids!
In first grade, it was all about the Snoopy lunchbox. I thought it was the most amazing thing, despite the fact that my lunch was usually boring and healthy and contained carrots, celery, raisins and peanut butter -- very 1970s ... Back then lunchboxes were usually made of metal. Metal lunchboxes often rusted after Mom washed them too many times or they were exposed to rain one to many times.
|Poochie, Poochie for girls! 1980s!
|Hello Kitty pencil cases rocked!
Marble notebooks and the tiny marble notebook memo pads rocked! In Catholic school, the nuns loved marble notebooks. They preferred them to spiral-bound because the papers were less likely to rip out and get lost. Today, as a non-student, I still like the look of the marble notebook but find the spiral notebooks more practical.
