- Page 1

Back in the 90s, Nickelodeon was all the rage. When networks like Disney were presenting us with programming that focused on offering us moral lessons, Nick was busy glorifying being a kid through their original cartoons and live-action shows.

In addition to filling our childhood with endless entertainment, Nickelodeon also decided to save some of those precious memories so we can all take a nostalgic trip together down memory lane some time in the future.

In 1992, the network had an idea to put together a time capsule. To help decide on the important items to include in the capsule, Nickelodeon enlisted the help of the "Kids World Council."

Together they came up with a list of items that young people of the early 90s cherished and would enjoy seeing again after 50 years. They even held a ceremony hosted by Mike O'Malley, and 90s teen heartthrob Joey Lawrence to mark the burial of the giant orange time capsule.

Here's everything that was important to kids of 1992:

1. Joey Lawrence "Whoa! '92" hat

3. Piece of The Berlin Wall
