We had a lot of really interesting toys in the 90s. Things that weren't really that interesting...but with a little imagination they went a long way.
We always remember the big one: Tamagotchis, Furbies, Pokemon cards, Hot Wheels, etc.
But what about the forgotten toys? The ones that were a huge hit for about 3 months and then just...well they fell victim to our ever-changing childhood.
Here's a list of thing that almost everyone had, but almost everyone has forgotten.
1. That bird toy that would balance on your finger.
Did it have a name?
2. The Deluxe Art Kit
Don't break the plastic case...it'll slice your finger open for the rest of time.
3. Magic Math Machine
4+7 = *squints really hard* maybe 11? maybe a house?
4. Hot Shot Basketball
Look out, Michael Jordan.
5. Waterful Ring-Toss
The only reason I looked forward to going to the doctor's office.
Were they for Bingo? Were they for art? Depends on the day.
7. Retractable Pens
"Watch me try and click them all down at once!"
8. BrainQuest trivia cards
They were only fun until your parents started taking them on road trips to quiz you.
9. Water Wiggles
Everyone had one...but no one really knows where it came from?
10. Flying Gliders
For when paper airplanes were too "amateur" for you.
11. THIS. BOOK.
The true prize of any school book fair.
12. Rubber Poppers
"Wait are you sure this actually works? OH WOW LOOK HOW HIGH IT WENT"
13. Straw Bowls
To drink that sweet, sweet nectar known as post-cereal sugar milk.
14. Let's Go Fishin'
Those grubby little fish looked so smug when your magnet didn't fully connect.
15. Sticky Hands
Good for about 3 days...then it just got gross.
The stones were so smoooooth!
17. Pin Art
"WATCH ME STICK MY FACE IN THIS"
18. Crazy Bones
Give me a glittery one or give me death.
