Some of us never really did grow up, but there’s no reason we should feel bad about it! The 90s were great, and with everything crazy going on that our parents had to deal with, it was nice to have some toys that helped us play and learn how to do practical activities!
If you want to reclaim that feeling of being a kid again, or give your kids the experience that your childhood offered, then check out these blast-from-the-past products you can order today!
Fisher-Price Corn Popper
Oh my gosh! I may have loved this all the more because the sound resembled popcorn and I would get really excited, but either way, I still remember how much fun I had pushing this around!
Look, if the feeling that you want to reclaim is that of terror, be my guest. Okay, they weren’t all bad, in fact a lot of people had a great time taking care of these “cute” little critters.
Talk about a throwback! Remember those commercials that used to play for these light-up art systems? There were so many ways to create beautiful pieces and it was one of those toys you could play with even after the lights went out at bed time!
For some kids, it was ant farms, others liked stamp-collecting. But the really cool kids got to order in a case of sea monkeys and watch them develop into an ocean zoo, and we still couldn’t figure out how it worked!
Apparently they could survive for up to two years, but be honest, did yours really make it that long?
I have encountered many “wild” stones, but I always wanted to know what it was like to take care of my very own pet rock. Do you raise it from a pebble? I think it’s time for these lovable minerals to make a come back!
Easy Bake Oven
Sure, you may have an actual oven in your kitchen now-a-days, but it’s just not the same! How many cakes, muffins, and cookies have you made using your own Easy Bake?
Etch A Sketch
No list would be complete without this amazing toy that got so many of us into art at such a young age. Thinking about the crazy complex pictures we would try to draw is just hitting me with a wave of nostalgia!
Hallmark Rainbow Brite Doll
Some kids had dolls, some kids had Barbies. But for the lucky few, they got to have the iconic blonde who always brought happiness and energy into every room she would enter!
If we’re being straight with one another, we’re just going to order this one because we lost the first one we got as kids and think we can do better this time around!
