Life was so much simpler in the glorious era of the 90s. There was no Instagram, Snapchat or smartphones and no selfies or filters.
A simpler time brought simpler joys in life. If you are a 90s kid like me then you will be able to reminisce on these wonderful things that make us look back fondly on our childhood. These are things that people from other generations will never understand so please sit back, relax and enjoy this blast from the past!
1.) Viennetta ice cream
2.) Crayola Mini Stampers markers
3.) Watching Supermarket Sweep
4.) The Windows 1995 solitaire deck
5.) McDonald’s Changeables toys
6.) Velcro ball game
7.) Pringles Carrying Cases
I don’t know a 90s kid that didn’t own one of these. If you could keep one of these virtual pets alive then you can definitely look after your own kids in the future. A Tamagotchi basically qualifies you as a parent.
9.) Slap Bracelets
10.) Pokémon cards
11.) CD players
12.) Butterfly Hair Clips
14.) Scented highlighters
15.) Candy Cigarettes
Honestly, we don’t know a kid that looked cooler than one with a chalky candy cigarette stick hanging out of their mouths. Looking back now, these sweets were probably sending the wrong message to kids…
16.) Nokia cellphone games
17.) Waterfall ring toss
18.) Multicoloured pen
19.) Origami finger game
21.) Milky pens
If you had a pencil case in school you definitely owned these pens. We don’t know why everyone loved them so much, you could literally never used them as the colours were so light they never showed up. They were so pretty though!
22.) You rented VHS tapes from Blockbuster
Okay, hands up if you miss Blockbuster more than anything in the world. I expect the entire 90s kid population to have their hands up right now. Also, you rented VHS not DVDs…that’s how old we all now feel. Nothing will beat Friday nights with the family, going to Blockbuster, picking up some snacks and VHS tapes. Ah, the simpler, happier days.
