The phrase no one remembers the 90s like the 90s’ kids has been on the internet for a while. Many things happened in the 90s that a lot of us remembers – from the grunge and pop music charts to new game boy consoles. These are just tiny fractions of how 90s went down. Still, it is easy to forget all the things that were made in the 90s. So, here is a list of ten things that made 90’s utterly unique and awesome.


1. Always Having A Capri Sun In Your Lunch Box

Capri Suns were a revolutionary invention for us kids in the 90s. They are straight-up delicious and convenient, with their foil casing. Still, opening the juice without jamming your straw is a bit tricky and needs practice.

If you are a 90s kid, we can all remember our massive serious doll collection, whether it’s troll dolls or American girl doll, it’s certain you have one. Dolls were everything to you back in the day. However, Barbies or Bratz Doll only became a sensation in the 2000s. So as a kid in the ‘90s, you probably spent your day brushing your impossible Troll Doll’s hair or having great adventures with your American Girl Doll.

When we were kids, Tamagotchi is like the PlayStation of our time. These digital pets, which was first sold in Japan in 1996, rapidly became a global sensation following their worldwide release.


Most kids in the ‘90s got these needy little keychain creatures and it has been a delight. So, we begged and begged our parents to get us one. It seems like a good idea at the time – a pet that you can bring anywhere. It’s a pet that you did not have to clean up after.


Still, there will be days that you will forget to play with it. After two days, most of us forget to feed it. So, who doesn’t remember the crushing feeling of finding out that their Tamagochi had died.

After all, some of them could be worth a lot of money. Most ‘90s kids believed that collecting Beanie Babies will make them Millionaires in the future. Those limited-edition bears and turtles with tags still on would be worth a fortune – or, so they believe.

We all remember that kids who got Game Boy in the ‘90s were awesome. But the only thing cooler than having a Game Boy in the 90s is having a Game Boy Color.

 

While it may seem a bit dinky by today’s console, having the Game Boy Color in the ‘90s means a lot. Imaging seeing Kirby in his full bubblegum-pink color or eating the bright red mushroom in the Super Mario. Overall, Game Boy Color was truly a life-changing gadget for most kids in the ‘90s. In fact, you probably saved your allowance for months so that you can buy this awesome console.

You practically have to wait for hours to download music on your computer. Still, there is something that we probably miss when using internet in the ‘90s.
