I HEART Campus Queen
I eagerly started reading the post "The 10 Worst Lunch Boxes Ever" from The Best Article Every Day. Sounds like a fun read, right? But then to my horror, I saw my lunchbox -- MY LUNCHBOX -- as part of item number 6. Here's what they say about Campus Queen (and the Pro Sports lunchbox they include with it):
What they say: “My mom has no clue what I actually like, but thinks that this looks like a generic idea of what I might enjoy based on clichéd gender roles and utilizing an early crude form of clip art.”
WHAT?!?! How dare they??? I begged my parents for a Campus Queen lunchbox. The girl had yellow hair just like me! She was the epitome of cool to my second grade mind. And the lunchbox had a GAME with it too!
Lucky me -- I DID have a Campus Queen lunchbox. And I still have it, proudly displayed in my laundry room, along with my first teddy bear and my lovely ballerina jewelry/music box.
