In 2018, kids eat Tide Pods. In the 90s, we really knew how to have fun without seriously damaging our organs. Here's a list of our favorite 90s activities you almost forgot:
1. Mad Libs
When we were young we used these to practice how to use nouns, verbs and adjectives. When we got a little older we learned which dirty words were nouns, verbs and adjectives. We thought we were hilarious and prayed our moms never found it and read it.
The Skip-It was a close second to the ultimate ankle destroyer, after the Razor Scooter of course. This toy was also nearly impossible to use because you had to get the exact timing and rhythm to not trip and fall on your face. This was basically an Olympic sport.
3. Game Boy
The Game Boy was one of the best toys we had, and in our eyes a huge success for technology. Being able to play during long car rides was everything, and we would play until our thumbs cramped.
Basically our first pet. They were supposed to be a small alien-like species that deposited an egg on Earth to see what life was like, and it was up to the player to raise the egg into an adult creature. The creature goes through several stages of growth, and developed differently depending on the care the player provided, with better care resulting in an adult creature that is smarter, happier, and requires less attention. There things were incredibly needy and I loved every minute of it.
