15 Toy Commercials From The '90s That We Could Never Forget, Even If We Wanted To

- Page 1

If you wanted to own some of the weirdest and best toys imaginable, the 90s were where you needed to be. Growing up at that time meant you could buy not one, not two, but three different dolls that could pee. It meant that your board games were based around murdering people. It meant that beating up your friends was just a fun good time as long as you covered your fists in balloons.

Every toy we had in the 90s was simultaneously the weirdest and best thing ever. I don't know why we thought a lot of these things were necessary, but who cares they were great! How many of these amazing toy commercials do you remember watching?

So many dolls that could pee...

The obsession was real in the 90s, but at the time none of us seemed to think it was weird. I guess it was neat that they could do it, but it's one of those things that they probably shouldn't have.

You had a few to chose between. There was Baby Alive who after you fed it would wet her diaper:

Magic Potty Baby who came with her own toilet:

As well as Potty Training Kelly who was Barbie's little sister who was learning how to use a toilet.

Slime-filled monster trucks

The Hot Wheels Slime-Inator is one of those toys that you can see why a kid would want it, but not at all why a parent would. There is no reason why anyone would want their kids to have a slime-machine that you know they would get all over the carpets.

Games about bullying your friends

Whether it was a board game, or a physical toy you played with, the 90s seemed to focus pretty heavily on making life difficult for your friends. I mean, at least it was in a safe way so no one was getting hurt, but it's an interesting pattern that emerged.

You could constantly break your friends hearts when you were playing Trouble:

Or you could play 13 Dead End Drive and essentially try to kill your friends so you could win the money.

And don't even get me started on Socker Boppers!

Believe or not, these aren't even half as weird as some of the others...

20 Pages From The 1991 Wish Book That Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

Sears Wish Books were basically the best thing ever. I think we can all agree that when we would receive them in the middle of summer we would immediately start planning our Christmas lists. Some kids would start marking up the pages even before our parents could see it. They probably didn't love when we would do that, but we got it first! We have already shown you a few other Wish Books, including 1983 and 1990, but what did Christmas wish lists look like in 1991? Wish Book WebYou've got to be excited if it is in the Super
