When you were growing up, either things had a distinct name or they were a thingamajig.

Not everything had a simple, memorable, or straight forward name like LEGO, Beanie Babies, or Barbie.

Here are 10 things you clearly recall to have seen or played with when you were a kid, but you never knew had a proper name.

1. Pins...? Needles...? That thing...?

It's called the pin screen. We weren't that far off.

2. We were all obsessed with drawing this cool "S" in our notebooks. Can you believe that it has a name?

It's called the Super S Stussy, the Super S, or Stussy.

Seriously, where did "Stussy" come from? People are still calling it the "Cool S," so let's just go with that...  

3. We know the chocolate is called Hershey's Kisses, but that little strip of paper also has a name.

It's called Niggly Wiggly.

4. What was this toy called other than that thing you find at the doctor's office?

It's called Bead Table or Wooden Bead Roller Coaster.

5. Seriously, what were these?

Apparently, Water Wigglies. I feel wiggly just looking at it.

I bet you had absolutely no clue about the names of these next ones!

If you take a look at your most recently played songs, what shows up? Is there anything that has been released in the past 10 years? Unlikely. Most of us tend to listen to a lot of nostalgia-inducing music which comes from our childhood and teen years. If you thought you might be along on this, you'd be wrong. In a recent article from the New York Times, it was uncovered that most people base their tastes, music or otherwise, on their formative years. “The most important period for men in forming their adult tastes were ages 13 to 16,


10 Awful Truths Kids From The '90s Are Only Just Realizing Now

Growing up in the 90s, we had a lot of lies told to us. For example, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." Didn't you though, Bill?However, there are some more subtle things from our childhoods that we're just starting to come around to, and some of them have me SHOOK (did I used that right? I can never tell). 1. That "farm" wasn't a real place. When I was young, my caregiver had a litter of bunnies. I wasn't allowed to take one home (because my parents were smarter than that) but I got to choose
