You are a child of the 90’s if…

30 Jan

Being born in 1985 I grew up with a lot of awesome things that are just missing in today’s world. Here is a list of how to tell if you were a  90’s kid like me! This post began because a friend on facebook posted about a show from our childhood.

  • You watched David the Gnome, Mya the Bee and Eureka’s Castle when you were little, for me after kindergarten :)! You also definitely had your parents/grandparents give you gnome kisses!
  • You loved New Kids on the Block when they were actually kids, not grown men performing with the backstreet boys, who are also grown men now!

  • Boys played with Ninja Turtles and you could never miss the Cartoon, girls played with polly pockets (the originals which were so tiny they were definitely a choking hazard, but you still loved them!)
  • The Beanie Baby Craze was the biggest thing ever, and people were seriously crazy about collecting them!
  • You had slap bracelets and Cabbage patch kid dolls…..Im still a little bitter that I was not allowed to have either of these. (My friend Laura did give me a Hello Kitty slap bracelet as part of my wedding gift. SCORE!)
  • The CANNOT miss shows when you got older were, Clarissa Explains it All, Hey Dude, Salute your Shorts, Saved By the Bell, Full House, Family Matters, Step by Step and any other show that was on TGIF!
  • Surge was probably an illegal substance, but you loved that soda and the crazy commercials! Three D doritos were also awesome and ketchup came in different colors, like purple and green. That just made it taste better! Orbits was the coolest drink, with the floating orbs inside it. Plus you had to have fruit stripe gum!
  • Three words, BOY MEETS WORLD!

  • Writing M.A.S.H. notes, and the fourtune cookie things that predicited your future, even though the inside flap probably just said you smell, or your pretty, we never really thought of good stuff to put inside there!
  • You Were Obsessed with either ‘Nsync, we didnt like back street boys and there was the big who is hotter debate of 1998, Lance or Justin….Honestly I still dont think Justin Timberlake is cute!
  • You played and/or collected “Pogs”
  • You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere
  • Yikes pencils and erasers were awesome, so were Lisa Frank and Trapper Keepers!
  • Scrunchies were actually fashionable and you had to have the coolest ones!

Feel free to add any more to the comments section, or add some from the time you were a kid!
