Kids' playtime lunchboxes

Bought 2 lunchboxes today at the flea market. They were sold originally with mashmallows but the owner didn't want to keep the boxes after the mashmallows were gone ! They are absolutely adorable and had different patterns of child's play on both sides. Kids need to play with other kids just like the old days but somehow, I don't seem to see enough of that these days. School work, tuition and new gadgets seem to be holding back the new generation. Glad I was born at a time when neighbourhood kids would gather naturally and improvise games along the way. We would fight and quarrel sometimes but that was part of the fun and it taught us social skills along the way. All these before angry birds, bejewelled and candy crush had everyone fixated from a very young age.
