The Best of the Best: 90’s Kids Throwbacks That Will Give You All the Feels

By 3 years ago

The ’90s were an epic decade. There were all types of gadgets, fads, and other creations that were all the rage back. Take, for example, Hit Clips—why were people scrambling to get a hold of keychain music player that only lasted one minute? That was just one of the items that are synonymous with the ’90s, but just wait until you see the rest—you’re going to be full of nostalgia by the time you’re through…

 

The Sony Discman

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t own a Sony Discman in the ’90s. The Discman (Sony later changed the name to CD-Walkman) first hit the market in 1984 as the first portable CD player and was the next generation from the Walkman, Sony’s portable cassette player introduced in 1979. The CD-Walkman was so popular, it gave the music industry a huge boost, as artists saw CD sales rapidly increase.

 

VHS or Bust

Just looking at a VHS tape reminds you of how much things have changed since the ’90s. Buy ’em or rent them, there was no menu screen, just ‘play’ followed by 15 minutes of movie previews. You could also record over the tape several times, so if you saw a TV program you wanted to record, you’d change the label on the VHS and pop in the tape. You’d also have to wait 10 minutes for the tape to rewind before watching it because no one followed the “be kind, rewind” rule.

 

Starry Night

These glow in the dark stars were popular in the ’90s and still hard to beat now. Peel off the back and stick the adhesive stars on the walls and ceilings of kids’ bedrooms for a starry night sky. Not only did they look awesome, but they helped the little ones who were afraid of the dark. The only problem with the glow in the dark stars is that it was nearly impossible to take them off the walls and ceilings—that tack was like cement.
