I like to write posts that sometimes have no purpose other than to entertain my readers and bring back good memories. So today's post is dedicated to those of us born in the late 80's (I was 1986) that grew up in the 90's and remember all things... well... 90's.
All things Nickelodeon
Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Rugrats, Doug, Ahh! Real Monsters, and soooo much more. Do you remember Stick Stickly? I do! I even have his address memorized because of the way he'd sing it at the end of each show. "Send it to me, Stick Stickly, PO Box 963, New York City, New York State, 10108!" Do you remember Face?? I loved him!!! He was a goofball!! And I also loved Little Bear, Franklin the Turtle, and a plethora of other things that I only remember when I see them. TV was the shiiiiit back then! Long live Blues Clues!
Skip it was awesome, what a simple way to stay active for hours. I also loved my Razor scooter. And when I was stuck inside I loved Simon, Trouble, and Bop It. It's the simple things in life.
Oh Those Books
Babysitters Club and Goosebumps. Ohhhhh yea!!!
Drinking Outta Cups
For some reason, my favorite thing was the little jelly jars that had animals on them that you could use as tiny glasses anytime you wanted a drink.
They were so corny but so exciting. I was a power ranger one year and a barbie another year. Both times I wore a plastic mask that nearly suffocated me but yet I still kept it on.
In my "hood" there would be 15-20 of us every night that ran around the neighborhood. We were all different ages but no one cared. We ran through peoples yards and they didn't even mind. We stayed out till the street lights came on and our feet and hands were green from grass stains. Those were the freakin' days man. We all knew where everyone was by where their bike was parked, too!
Back then, scrunchies were cool and you wouldn't get made fun of for wearing them. Also cool were the butterfly clips and barretts.
Yep - Jonathan Taylor Thomas - YUM!
These were like "THE" cool thing to be able to play with. I sucked at it but it was still fun to collect all the different designs.
Sigh....do you feel that? That's the sense of nostalgia coming back. Hey, atleast we have the memories.
What else do you remember from back in the 90's?
