The 90s were a truly interesting time. We were experiencing technological changes like we had never seen before, our our music was taking a new turn, and we all looked like hyper-color blobs of spandex.
One thing that was definitely changing a lot was our toys. Each year one toy would take over and kids would be begging their parents for it every day. Every year one or two new toys that would take over as the most popular, leaving us kids asking for more and more.
If you grew up in the 90s, chances are you wanted at least half of these things.
1990 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figures
Anything and everything related to the Ninja Turtles was HUGE in 1990. There were hundreds of options to choose between so everyone could find something they wanted.
1991 - Nintendo Game Boy
The idea of bringing your video games on the go with you was unheard of, so obviously the second this came out we all had to have one.
1992 - Super Soakers
These were such a hit! Everyone NEEDED one, or at least that's what we told our parents.
1993 - Talkboy
Kevin McCallister had one, so we needed one too. How else would we protect ourselves if we got lost on a family vacation?
1994 - Power Rangers Action Figures
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers were the absolute coolest thing around. We all had our favorite ranger and would play as them at recess time.
1995 - POGS
With nearly endless design options, there was a way for everyone to collect the POGS they wanted!
