Ahhhh, the good ol' 90s. Full of surprise events and crazy products that had us scratching our heads. Now it's time to pass on the wisdom.

You'll have to explain everything to your kids, but here are 12 things they're going to be really confused about. As a parent, it's your job to clear things up.

1. This monstrosity:

There's no denying that these were comfortable, but how was this fashionable? Looking like I'm wearing my older brother's jeans is by no means attractive.

2. The floppy disk.

3. Comb headbands.

The real question here is, why did guys wear them? To be fair, David Beckham could pull off any hairstyle, wearing any kind of hair accessory.

4. *NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys

We all know which one was better! Let's be serious, can anyone compete with the boy band who sang "Everybody" and "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely?"

5. Heinz's colorful ketchup.

To our kids this looks gross, but it was super cool for us back in the '90s. These were our Tide Pods, but at least they were certified edible!

6. This sound:

Kids nowadays will freak out if they hear this sound, thinking that aliens are invading the world. It's dial-up, and we're so glad right now that it does sound alien. High-speed internet is a blessing.

Keeping reading, they just get better from here!
