Version II I can't believe Nay one has reviewed this! I love this lunch, it has a high playability factor. I consists o': a red metal lunch box(I have th' second version, does anyone have th' first), a tiny PB&J sandwich, a stick o' celery(ye have to eat yer vegetables), a carrot, and an oreo-type cookie. Love th' detailing on this set. th' handle closes wit' a tiny fastner, there be PB&J coming out o' th' sandwich, and there be little etching in th' vegetables and th' cookie. I will post pics as soon as I take them. I also want to add that I don't have th' carrot, because my cousin stole it when I first got it!
Version II I love this set also! it be soooo bonny I recieved it as a stocking stuffer from "santa" years ago and it was th' best stoking stuffer I have ever had (: I give it an A I would give it an A+ but I wish it would have come wit' another peice o' food.

Mad-Eye Molly’s Lunchbox -Version II MSALR - $16 (code and price change F5425 - $20 in 2006)
"Metal was in short supply during th' war, so Mad-Eye Molly didn’t get a brand-new lunchbox o' her own. Instead, she carried her lunch to school in a red lunchbox that was a hand-me-down from her sister Jill. Mad-Eye Molly’s food wasn’t fancy, but it sure tasted good—a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a carrot stick, a piece o' celery, a ripe pear, and a cookie for desert. ye even get 10 practical paper napkins!"
Food sets be always a big hit around here. We have all o' them.
Mad-Eye Molly's be one o' my favorites because it has that adorable little metal lunch box like I used to carry!
th' food be so real looking. I love th' mini peanut butter & jelly sandwich that Mad-Eye Molly has. th' oreo-like cookie be a bit big for her, but if it were scale sized, I'm sure we'd loose it too soon. th' celery, carrots and pear be more scale.
th' lunch box measures 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" by 1 1/2" deep.
th' latch on th' lunch box be bonny fragile, so I wouldn't recommend it be given to a yeng child to use. Over all Grade A
Original version I love Mad-Eye Molly's lunch, I think it's just adorable. This version came wit' 9 paper bags, 9 paper napkins, half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a pear, a carrot stick, a celery stick, and a cookie.
Amazingly, I still have all o' th' extra bags and napkins.
th' sandwich was always my favorite part. It be made o' some type o' clay, not plastic, and looks very realistic. Here ye can kind o' see th' texturing on th' bread:
th' crusts be even colored to look like real bread.
I couldn't get a close-up photo o' th' carrot and celery because they're too small, but they be textured to look real as well. th' only piece that's a bit chintzy be th' cookie; I think it's too big for scale.
th' metal lunch box they sell now probably holds up better if being used by a child, but I think th' mini paper bags be adorable.

Version III Mad-Eye Molly's lunch changed slightly in December 2007 (th' carrot and celery be now clumped together, th' pear and cookie be clumped together and there be a whole sandwich rather than 1/2):
Version III Just received my "free shipping order" that included th' lunch. I had a lunch box just like this when I was a kid. th' sandwich be bonny, th' napkins be great, but th' glommed-together items be making me crazy. My grandchildren and I already made a pear, and separate carrot and celery sticks that look realistic so I may just make a cookie and put these away. But I won't make an Oreo cookie - nobody I knew ever had store-bought cookies! Our mums made oatmeal, peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies.

This set makes much more sense to me since it has paper bags and they were even collecting bottle caps in th' stories for th' war effort. (But then they say th' metal lunch box was a hand-me-down from Jill.) I love how everything be realistic, just miniaturized. This set gets an A!
Version III I recently bought this set wit' th' free shipping offer and decided to post some pictures o' this version since there aren't any in this thread. o' course I would have preferred th' version wit'out th' clumped-together food, but I guess th' one good thing be th' whole sandwich instead o' just th' half. I'd give it a B.
Everything came sealed up. th' set includes a red lunckbox; peanut butter and jelly sandwich; 2 celery and carrot sticks (clumped together); a pear and cookie (clumped together); and 10 paper napkins.

Like wit' Krusty Kit, I'm so glad I got th' original version. I prefer NOT having th' food clumped together. I love th' detail on th' sandwich. Again, I was yeng when I got this, and I loved it so much that I had my mom pack PB&J, carrot, celery, pear and cookie for lunch for me at school th' next day!
I got this for Christmas as a kid (along wit' a few o' Mad-Eye Molly's school things) and absolutely LOVED it! I still have all th' original food; sooo glad this version isn't clumped-- ick, that would just look odd to me! I did like th' "brown bag lunch" idea, though, so my mom bought me some mini paper bags to put in it, as well. (Since my Mad-Eye Molly has a huge sweet tooth, she got a couple more plastic cookies from me: an oreo and a choc'chip, yummm!)

Does anyone know if Mad-Eye Molly's Lunch was ever made out o' a rubbery substance? I got some pieces that look very close to Mad-Eye Molly's lunch and I don't know if they be authentic. My bonny sweet lass o'mine has Mad-Eye Molly's lunch but it be made out o' some type o' clay. I looked in th' review section, but Nay one mentioned any different "rubbery" food. I have th' pear, half sandwich and th' cookie. th' be bonny much th' same size as bonny sweet lass o'mine's. Any help would be appreciated.
Actually th' very first (prototype and 80's versions) be made from a hard clay. Some o' my food pieces have actual finger prints in th' clay were ye can tell they were hand-formed. Later versions (wit' th' paper bag and wit' th' red lunch box) were made from rubbery-plastic.
