Every kid loves hanging out at the mall. It's the perfect excuse to see your friends, snack on some greasy food, and best of all, run amok in stores that were awesome to just browse.

When you needed the best new music, this was the place to go.

Warner Bros. Studio Store


Back when Warner Bros. was still an animation juggernaut competing with Disney, we all loved checking out Space Jam toys in here. Pretty sure I still have one somewhere.

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips!

If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking.
