The 90s were an absolute goldmine for wacky, weird, and just flat out insane board games, with equally insane commercials. I'll bet you any amount of money that you've played some of these, but probably couldn't remember the name if you tried!
Fireball Island, or as we called it, "that game with all the awesome traps"
Splat, the game all about squishing your friends' insects
Don't Wake Daddy, where you had to sneak your way around a spring-loaded dad
Pizza Party, which makes me hungry just looking at it

The show was extremely popular, and was one of the weekly must-watch shows that families would gather around the TV to enjoy together. Patricia Richardson starred as Jill Taylor, Tim's wife and mother to the rest of the Taylor crew. While she admitted that she loved working on the show, the actress declined the network's offer for the ninth season. Reports suggest
When you think back to your childhood, what toy do you remember spending most of your time with? There's probably one that stands out, whether it was a particular stuffed animal, a special Barbie, or even a video game, that you remember going absolutely bananas over. Have you ever wondered if you were the only one to be completely obsessed with it, or if kids from other states also loved the same thing? Well, AT&T has decided to dig into the world of 90s nostalgia, and they hope to answer the question we've all had, "What is the most
Chances are that when you were growing up there were a few dolls that you always wanted. There were some Barbie dolls that were absolutely coveted, there were of course the iconic Cabbage Patch Dolls that everyone needed, but there was one brand that seemed to take the cake when it came to the most desirable doll on the market. American Girl dolls were probably the fanciest things our tiny brains could dream of owning.
