Aladdin Osmonds lunch box
The Aladdin Osmonds lunchbox is a vintage lunch box featuring the American music group The Osmonds.
The lunchbox was produced by Aladdin in 1973, to tie in with the peak of the band’s continued success in the United States and breakthrough in the U.K. The band were the subject of a Saturday morning animated cartoon show on ABC-TV, and a range of merchandise appeared as ‘Osmondmania’ spread.
Members of the family began to have solo hits, and as the popularity of the group faded the ‘Donny and Marie Show’ became a hit on television from 1976 until 1979 spawning another wave of Osmond merchandise (including another lunchbox).

The top of the lunchbox shows a number of gold record discs along with the titles of their most famous recordings (including solo records by Donny such as ‘Puppy Love’).
It also comes complete with a white thermos flask with a deep pink cup/lid. The body of the flask features images of the band performing along with their signatures in gold.
