The Twiggy Lunch Box, Brunch Bag and Thermos


During the 1960's there was no better way for a child to express their love for their favourite television show, band or idol at school than with an official lunch box. Not only was there a Twiggy lunch box, but also a matching brunch bag and thermos to make one the envy of the class.

They were released and manufactured by Aladdin Industries Incorporated, Nashville, TN, U.S.A. in 1967 and each was decorated with mod Twiggy graphics.
The lunch box was made of vinyl with a metal clasp, had a white plastic handle and came in a soft lilac colour. On the front it included an image of Twiggy's face as well as three mini graphics of her posing in three different outfits.


The brunch bag was also made of vinyl, and also came in the soft lilac colour. However, it's shape was rounded, it's dimensions were bigger and it came with a metal zipper for closure and an over the shoulder matching vinyl strap to carry it. It also featured Twiggy's face, and a mini graphic of her posing in front of London's "Big Ben".

The Twiggy thermos was made of steel and came in the same lilac colour. It included a white cup cap, a white stopper, a sleave and a filler, and within it held instructions on how to use it and care for it. Its dimensions were 6 1/2" high and 3 1/8" in diameter, and upon it it pictured five different graphics of Twiggy in five different outfits.
