      I think you need to post this on Charles Phoneix’s page- last year he was asking what he should do when he came to Orlando, and people were trying to send him to Tupperware, even though they didn’t have a museum at the time…

      by the way your photos (and copy) ROCK!

      Color me apple green with jealousy. Fantabulous!

      That Warren Platner furniture is divine; although I would be willing to bet that Paul Lynde would have designed great stuff too 🙂

        I am a huge Paul Lynde fan (“you know where you stand with a pet” is a phrase from Bye Bye Birdie that always gets Retro Roadhusband and me giggling) but yes, I’m sure he would’ve come up with something divoon!

      LOVE THIS! Great report, makes me desperately want to visit! Speaking of min Tupperware, I remember when I was in grade school, a lot of girls who had mom’s in the Tupperare biz would have these mini covered bowls on a keychain. They would keep their ice cream money in them!

        I had no idea mini tupperware was a tradition – I would LOVE a mini covered bowl, but I am however quite pleased with my “Shape-O-Ball”. And no need to worry about your comment, doll, it totally adds to my knowledge of this plastic classic!

      I saw the show Tupperware! back in 2005 – it’s fabulous!
      I love the mini Tupperware keychains as well…are you going to tell us how many varieties there are?

        Diane- I’m interested in the Tupperware show, as some people have seen it, but the PBS banner says it premieres on Valentine’s day – should be interesting regardless!

        As far as the keychains, this is what I can tell you – there was that whole display full of “Tiny Treasures” and 3 of the items were featured in the machine below. They each cost a dollar, and the money goes to the foundation. I was excited to get a “Shape-O-Ball” which I totally remember from the 1970s in real life. Retro Roadhusband got one in the shape of a hot pepper, and as a Thank You to Rick K we got him the final one of the trio offered, a pink cupcake shaped one (he said his wife would enjoy it very much) – each one came in a handy tupperware storage container so we have that too.

        My pal Anna mentioned that she had a pal back in HS whose mom sold Tupperware, and she had a keychain with a bowl with a lid on it. Totally cool sounding to me!

        Thanks for stopping by Retro Roadmap!

      Great article! I have such fond memories of my mother attending tupperware parties in the 1970s and coming home with colourful new things for us to use every day. I’ll be sure to put this on my list of places to visit next time I’m in Orlando!

        Michael – that’s so cool that Tupperware features prominently in your happy childhood memories! I have a few other Retro Roadmap worthy places around Tupperware HQ that I’ll be blogging about shortly, so stop by again for some more cool places to check out!

      WOW! That looks like so much fun! I must go to there. Thanks for the tip! My in-laws live on the Gulf Shores. This looks like it is WELL worth the drive! (And Gatorland.)

        I’m a big fan of the vintage retro fun in Florida – if you do go to visit the in-laws check in with my Florida connection Rick Kilby – he’ll let you know everything to visit!

      Glad to see that it is still there. I was hoping the museum wasn’t torn down for a new hotel. When we lived near Kissimmee in the mid-seventies, the drive to Orlando past Tupperware seemed to go through the middle of no where, close to dirt roads. A small traveling carnival or circus would park for the winter near there, by a bend in one of the dirt roads.

      I lived in Kissimmee in the early 1990’s and discovered the museum then. When my parents visited me we went to the museum every time. Back then they had all kinds of living situations set up that used Tupperware including fake food on the grill set up at the mock outdoor camping site – complete with a full camper. They also showed how Tupperware could be used as art and some pieces were in the thousands of dollars. I’m back in Orlando 20 years later and STILL want to visit the museum again. Nobody was there which made it a total joy to visit – considering all the tourists that go through the area. Long live THIS museum!

        So glad the Tupperware museum has another fan! Thanks for the support Todd, and for swinging by Retro Roadmap!

        😀 My parents and I used to go around the same time. I remember the scene you spoke. I always loved going there. The museum was like visiting life-size barbie sets. It was a shame when they stopped giving the snack-sized bowls with lids. I used them for lunches and crafts through my childhood.

      Do you still get to walk through the gardens? As a Manager many years ago, when they had Jubilees in Orlando, many trees, flowers & decorations in the gardens had our names on plaques. It’s been years, but I would love to find my name on those plaques again.

        Sharon – I am not sure! We did not see the gardens when we were down there, but wow- that was a few years ago. Hate how time flies! Here’s the phone # if you want to call them to find out! 407-826-8755 / hope that helps! xo Mod B
