Did you grow up in the 90s? Can you believe that it’s been almost 30 years? Nearly three decades since the decade that brought us the Gulf War, the launch of the Hubble Space telescope, Bill Clinton’s affair and the death of Diana Princess of Wales.
You can probably remember some of the things that happened during the 90’s, but can you remember the little things? Can you recall what books you were reading, which toys you were playing with and what you were wearing? Take a look at our list of 90s nostalgia and see how many childhood memories are triggered…
What We Were Reading In The 90s
This helped us differentiate between a ‘curly’ and a ‘kicking’
Rainy play times and stories on the carpet
Only bought for the posters.
The Things We Collected in the 90s
When Cornflakes were exciting.
If you got a holographic one it made your day!
Kinder Egg toys were worth keeping
Collecting these real gemstones made Geology cool.
You were nobody if you didn’t have a full wrist of ‘shag bands’.
What We Watched in the 90s
The best sign on the lollipop!
This babbling monstrosity actually had a Christmas No.1 single
Holly Willoughby’s predecessor.
Fox, Vixen and an awful lot of roadkill
Bodger loved…MASHED POTATO!
What We Were Wearing in the 90s
Cheap and cheerful!
Everyone’s Dad had a ‘Fat Willy’
This never looked good. Never.
All the cool girls hobbled into school wearing these
With their ‘Rachel’ haircuts
Whilst the lads opted for the ‘boy band’ look
What We Were Eating in the 90s
You were really lucky if you got some of the adult pick n mix!
Please bring back Cadbury’s Fuse!
Drinks you could squeeze…
Before Jamie Oliver ruined teatime forever…
The Things We Owned in the 90s
Never used for its intended purpose. We just liked the stickers.
Something to carry your chicken paste sandwiches and carton of Um Bongo in
The boy version
These took over our lives… for about 3 days.
Thankfully, these all came with a Puncture Repair Kit.
Boys just stopped communicating altogether…
The ‘portable’ CD player. Our pockets must have been enormous.
The things we did in the 90s
Recorded the music charts on a Sunday
Made friends in online chat rooms. ASL? BRB!
Played ‘Snake’ on a Nokia 3210 and thought it was a good game
La Macarena! You can probably still remember the moves.
Picked a side when these two had a very public fall out
Felt proud when we were allowed to write with these at school
Knew the lyrics to ‘Smelly Cat’
Told everyone who hadn’t already seen it that ‘Leonardo dies at the end’
We know that there are many more things we could have included but we would much rather you shared your memories with us. What do you remember most about the 90s? Let us know in the comments.
