Growing up in the 90s had a pretty unique set of stressful situations. Sure, it was never life or death, but sometimes it really felt like it.
90s kids experienced their own struggles, ones that kids today wouldn't understand at all. They have their own problems, sure, but ours were pretty much the worst. I mean, of course we think that because they were our problems, but still!
Check out the problems and see if any of these sound familiar:
You lost your favorite Lip Smacker and can't find it in store anymore
When your bangs or your bowl get cut uneven and now it'll take weeks to even out OR you have to cut it even shorter
You forgot it was picture day and didn't wear the cute outfit you were supposed to
You missed the newest episode of your favorite show and now you have no idea when you will ever be able to see it again
Having to see the same commercials for the N64 over and over again even though your parents already said you can't have one
Going to your friend's house to play Nintendo, but then they get bored because they play it all the time
When Koolaid stopped making the flavor you liked
When you weren't allowed to check on your Tamagotchi until recess and it died
And that wasn't all we had to deal with...
The pain that we felt when those hair elastics with the plastic beads would break and snap into your head
Any time your parents forced you to wear an outfit
McDonald's was the very best treat that a kid could have. Going to get some chicken McNuggets, then hanging out in the Play Place was the highlight of any week. Well, in the 90s you could bring that experience home with you. That's right, you could eat McDonald's in your home, perfect for the true fast food lover! Just what every mom wants! You might be wondering what kind of set up your mini McDonald's would have. Well, lucky for you, there was essentially all the parts you need to have your own franchise (sort of)! I mean, nothing was
Kids today have a vague idea of the 80s through TV, movies and just general knowledge that gets passed down, but some of us actually lived through that nonsense. There was neon EVERYWHERE, and hair was bigger than you could possibly imagine. Not everyone wants to remember it fondly because it was a lot going on at once, but you know what, we should embrace our choices. The 80s were the brightest, most colorful and perhaps the most fun decade fashion wise that we have ever had. Kids today may get little pieces of it here and there, but they
We all watched Clueless back when it came out and in so many moments we were envious of Cher. She had amazing hair, a cool car, and all kinds of other advantages that we wish we had. One of the most awesome things in Cher's giant house was her closet. Not only because she had amazing clothes, but because Cher had this crazy computer system that helped her get dressed.The system would tell her if the clothes were a mismatch (which sounds super handy) and it would activate the electronic system that would find all the pieces of the
We all know and love Cabbage Patch Kids right? They are cute, cuddly and adorable. Then there are the Garbage Pail Kids. They are not cute, not cuddly, and adorable but probably almost as popular. These horrifyingly bizarre creations were made as sort of the parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids. They were specifically designed to be as disgusting and offensive as possible (in contrast to their inspiration) which was 100% their appeal. This was of course before the Cabbage Patch Dolls became terrifying enough on their own.Parents hated them, schools despised them, but kids were obsessed. In 1987
