The new Beatles entries from Factory Entertainment of coin banks and lunch boxes have a wonderful familiar nostalgic look to them and the lunch boxes bring back designs used 50 years ago in 1964, Barry Eldridge of Factory Entertainment told Beatles Examiner March 6.
“The coin banks showcase the iconic album cover art and include both front and back cover graphics,” he said. “The lunch boxes are recreations of classic vintage lunch boxes that were available in the 60’s. We took the original artwork and digitally enhanced it as a homage to those classic metal boxes that were beloved by Beatles fans.”
A look on eBay at some of the originals show that the new lunch boxes match the designs of those vintage ones. The new ones also come with insulated metal drink containers.
According to Eldridge, the coin banks are in stock and shipping now. The lunch boxes will arrive later this month. You can see a selection of 10 of the new products in the slide show on this page. Factory's Beatles line also includes diecast cars and plush toys.
