As a kid of the 90’s, it only seems fair to remember about the decade that brought about some of the funnest times I got to experience during my childhood. If you’re a 90’s kid like me, you will appreciate the items on this list and I can guarantee some of these will make you miss the time when life was simpler.
This list contains some pretty awesome things that kids from our generation will never have or understand. So sit back and experience a blast from the past.
1. Collecting CARDS
Collecting cards was a big deal for kids during that time. We’ve invested our childhood savings in buying packs hoping to get the card we desperately needed to complete our deck. Whether you collected Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, or Magic. There are so many different trading card games which we liked to play.
2. Making PAPER-BOATS in monsoon
And after the rain we always float paper boats in rain water streams. As adults we don’t make paper boats anymore. If you’ve made paper boats by tearing out pages from your school notebooks, and sometimes got into a who’s-boat-lasts-the-longest-competition with your neighborhood kids or siblings, then you had an amazing childhood.
3. Drinking RASNA / ROOH AFZA, after playing outdoor games
There’s a joy of drinking these special drinks after spending a long time on the playground. Yes its the ultimate drink for a 90’s kid.
4. Listing music on WALKMAN
If you wanted to listen to music in the 90’s, you didn’t use an iPod. No, you carried around a Walkman. These rugged music players were portable and got the job done.
This Slam Book says everything you need to know about 90’s teens. A record of everything you and your friends loved. Slam book had encouraged gossip and hurt a lot of feelings.
6. One KEY for all toys
Remember this small tool. It’s a key to success. A key which holds the power to run almost all the toys for the kids of 90’s.
7. Watching FTv channel secretly
Ahem Ahem, boys who were born in 90’s may know what keeps them awake late at night. Secretly watching Fashion Channel on Tv with the fear of getting caught was a great deed of dare for the kids of 90’s.
8. RENTING CD-DVD
We had a DVD player in our home and CDs or DVDs of the movies or video games were available for rent. As a kid of 90’s, I remember how I used to rent DVDs of the movies I wanted to watch in early 20th century. Kids these days won’t understand the trouble because they get the desired movies or Tv series easily.
9. Trading Video Game Cartridge
We had a huge collection of video game cartridge. This reto video game became addictive for the 90’s kids and to play more type of games we used to trade with our friends.
10. LASER LIGHT
A dream toy for every 90’s kid. It’s strange to think a tiny red beam of light could bring so much childhood joy and it seems like a bit of a leap to imagine we had much of a use for the thing.
11. “SELF” & “FLAMES or Love Percentage” decides our relation with our crush
SELF: Siblings, enemies, lover, friends.
FLAME: Friends, lover, affection, marriage, marriage or enemy.
This test decided our relationship with the other person while we were in school and we enjoyed calculating our love percentage with our crush.
12. 8-bit,16-bit Game Console and Water Ringtoss
The 90’s marked the time of the video game boom and if you were a kid in the 90’s, you played video games. The best retro multiplayer game console with various cartridge was every person’s favorite hobby which they enjoyed most in the world.
13. Slap Bracelets
As a child of the 90’s, I can confirm that slap bracelets were all the rage. The slap bracelet was a popular fad among children, pre-teens, and teenagers in the late 90’s and early 20th century, and was available in a wide variety of patterns and colors.
14. Phantom Candy Cigarettes
Candy cigarettes are candies introduced in the early 20th century made out of chalky sugar, bubblegum or chocolate, wrapped in paper as to resemble cigarettes. It’s just a candy, all the kids from the 90’s grew up sucking and chewing on.
I hope while reading all these, you had a glimpse of your awesome childhood.
