Before Japan unleashed Pokémon on the world, we were obsessed with a completely different kind of digital monster that they sent our way. Taking care of these things was practically a full-time job.

Slap Bracelets


All the benefits of a massive, eye-piercingly bright bracelet, but with added noise and pain when you put it on!


They combined shoes and roller skates! We kinda get the feeling these died out when pretty much everybody who used them at school looked absolutely ridiculous.

5 Forgotten Workout Videos We Were All Completely Obsessed With In The 90s

Growing up in the 90s wasn't all just scrunchies and platform shoes. You had to work out a lot because for some reason every 90s designer thought we all wanted to wear crop tops. Hey designers, guess what? We didn't. There was a lot of pressure on being thin, and honestly as a young girl at the time, hearing models like Kate Moss say, "nothing tasted as good as skinny felt" really confused me.
