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...

We all remember that one kid on the playground who was slapping around a stick as though it was the most impressive thing in the universe. Sure, it probably required a decent amount of skill, but the Devil Sticks fad died out fairly quickly and we all moved on to the next great craze. But the truth is, Devil Sticks aren't just a 90s thing. They actually started over a century before they became a craze on every playground in the country.

Listen, we can all reminisce about the 90s until we are blue in the face, but there were some fads that just were a little bit... well, bizarre, is the best way to put it. No decade can claim that they were free from the crazy flash fads that seemed to come and go before anyone could really understand what was going on, but the 90s sure did have some weird ones. How many do you remember? 1. Chain WalletsYou couldn't trust anyone back in the 90s. You had to make sure those things were secured properly into your pocket,
