Kind of food related question...

Anyone know where I can get lunch boxes in Paris? Kids lunch boxes that is.
I want to bring home some presents for my two girls (8 and 5) and thought it would be cool to bring home some 'European' kids lunchboxes...but I am having a hard time finding anything specific on the internet and thought I would ask my fellow foodies here. I wanted to source a location before I go so I am not scouring all over Paris for days.
Any ideas? Or do the kids not take lunch to school?
Dear Parisdreamer, I'm afraid It's quite an impossible task : Children have a lunch school, but it is provided by the school (or to be more accurate by the town administration) at a canteen. You can even find the weekly menu at the door of every school, some even provide organic food.
So lunchboxes aren't a part of our daily life in France.
But they are available in Germany, Great- Britain ...
You should try maybe the Galeries Lafayette departement strore : the got a whole buikding dedicated to decoration and cooking, or the Britannic store "HABITAT" (near La Madeleine).

I can't remember where, but it seemed to me that during the summer we fell over personal lunch carriers many times, probably in the grand magazines. Even Monoprix?
Thanks everyone, that is what I figured just after I posted that thread I realized the probably get lunches at school. Some suggestions anyways that I can go take a look at.
I am kind of looking for ones with little compartments so the bento boxes might work quite well too - but I may be able to find those locally - will have to find out first.
