It's a scientific fact that toy technology and advertising peaked in the 90s, and the generations that've come since have never realized what they're missing out on. In particular, these 15 toys can definitively prove that toys these days are just nowhere near as cool.
Sure this toy dates back to the 1940s, but we definitely fell in love with the thing all over again thanks to all the commercials that made it look like a total blast. If you wanna recapture the thrill of making it walk down the stairs, you can buy it here.
Velcro Toss & Catch
What's better than playing catch with a plain ol' baseball and gloves? How about if the gloves were actually velcro pads and the ball was fuzzy? NOW you're talking! Grab one of these bad boys here and start throwing!
Again, this teeeeeeeechnically wasn't a 90s toy, but I'll be damned if every kid in my elementary school classes weren't trying to do tricks with these things in the middle of class. You can relive the glory of these things here.
Forget plain ol' regular markers, stamp markers were a cornerstone of every artsy 90s kid's portfolio. They came in cool shapes that you could used to make all sorts of creative designs, and I'm personally livid they never caught on more. Stock up on them here while you can!
We all got mesmerized by staring through these things at our ceiling lights, and if you ever wanted to experience that again, you can grab one right here.
If you're anything like me, you loved staring at and playing with these things whenever you saw one in the store, but your parents never actually got you one. Remedy this injustice by grabbing one here!
