10 Things That Will Take 90s Kids Waaaaaay Back

2. Furby

Furby was the embodiment of crazysexycool, and has had a bit of a facelift in recent years. A little bit cute, a little bit demonic, these furry friends were a must have for every 90s kid. I named mine after Baby Spice: peak 90s!

Nostalgia for the 90s has never been stronger, and there’s a good reason for it. This year, it’s been 20 years since Spyro charged onto our screens, Geri left the Spice Girls and Lindsay Lohan made her film debut in The Parent Trap.

Come inside our velvet rope (reference!) and take a trip down memory lane with these 10 things that will take 90s kids waaaaay back…

1. ABSOLUTE bangers

There’s a reason that your local does a 90s night every two weeks, and that’s because the music went OFF. Madonna was going to number one quicker than a Ray Of Light, Will Smith was Gettin’ Jiggy With It, and Gwen Stefani was still very much Just A Girl. TAKE US BACK to when the boybands and guilty pleasure bops were aplenty.

3. Discman

Before streaming was ever a thing, Discmans were the must-have item for every pop stan. Before you could make a Spotify playlist of all your favourite Britney jams, you’d have to carry around your copy of …Baby One More Time in your Discman (which you’d obviously have covered in stickers of Godney).

4. Tamagotchi

Most 90s kids share one battle scar from their childhood: the day they forgot to feed their Tamagotchi and let it starve to death. Sweet dreams my precious lil blob of pixels </3 ☹

5. The Internet 1.0

All 90s kids are haunted by the memory of *that* dial up internet noise. But it was worth suffering through for the feeling you’d get when you got online and literally felt like you were Neo in The Matrix.

6. Spyro

Like Furby, Spyro’s had a major revamp as of late. Spyro has a fond place in the hearts of any kid from the 90s, and the new Reignited trilogy is taking me back to when I was truly Livin’ La Vida Loca. Seriously though, getting to play all of my favourite Spyro levels again in glorious HD is like having a sweet, sweet fantasy come to life, Gnorcs beware!

7. Cartoons

We can’t talk about the 90s without talking about the cartoons. Daria was and always will be my forever mood, and the Rugrats taught me everything I need to know about life; be Tommy Pickles in a world full of Angelicas.

8. Titanic

Titanic was that girl for a number of reasons. Firstly, Young Leo. Secondly, My Heart Will Go On, i.e, the greatest karaoke song of all time. The drama! The key change! THE FLUTE! Celine knows just as well as I do that there was enough room on that raft for the two of you, Rose.

9. Beanie Babies

Before we became obsessed with collecting Instagram likes, we were collecting Pokemon cards and Beanie Babies. This collecting obsession brought out one of the most heartbreaking pics of the 90s, this couple dividing up their Beanie Babies in their divorce. Someone please Un-break My Heart ☹

10. Friends

Friends was the reason that every 90s kid wanted to pack their bags, get the ‘Rachel’ haircut and move to New York. Most importantly, it sparked one of the most important international debates of all time, *were* Ross and Rachel ‘on a break?’ (No. No they weren’t. You Oughta Know better Ross).









They were NOT on a break
