You know your from the 90’s when….

You remember when “Pocket Pets” were in

When you still get the urge to say “NOT” after (almost) every sentence…Not…

You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.

“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”

You remember when super Nintendo’s became popular.

You ever got injured on a Slip ‘n’ Slide

You played and or collected “Pogs”

All your school supplies were “Lisa Frank” brand. (pencils, notebooks, binders, etc.)

You remember when the new Beanie Babies were always sold out.

You used to wear those stick on earrings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.

Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys were the best mystery books.

You know the Macarena by heart.

Before the MySpace frenzy.

Before the Internet & text messaging.

Before Sidekicks & iPods.

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX.

Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs & paid $3.50 for a movie.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

Way back….

To tag.

Hide-n-Go Seek at dusk.

Red Light, Green Light.

Tree Houses.

Hula Hoops.

“Power of Love” By Celine Deon …only couples could skate to this.

Hello….HOT WHEELS!!!!

The annoying Nano Pets & Furbies.

Running through the sprinklers.

That “Little Mermaid”

Crying when Mufasa died in the Lion King. Every time you watched it.

Happy Meals where you chose a Barbie or a Hot Wheels car.

Getting the privilege to sit in the front seat of the car.

Drinking Squeeze It “Squeeze The Fun Out Of It”


Watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in your PJ’s still wrapped up in your TMNT, Power Rangers, Barbie, Fairy Princess comforter.

Mr Rodgers!!!!

Little Bear

Pee-Wee Herman!!!

Kool-Aid was the drink of choice.

When Christmas was the most exciting time of year.

When $5 seemed like a million, & another dollar a miracle.

When you begged to go to McDonalds for dinner everyday.

Decisions were made by going ‘eeny-meeny-miney-moe’.

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming ‘do over!’

‘Race issue’ meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was banker in ‘Monopoly’.

Act like you didn’t watch afro-king BOB ROSS paint trees on T.V.

It wasn’t odd to have two or three ‘best’ friends.

Being old referred to anyone over 20.

It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the ‘big people’ rides at the fair.

When playing Nintendo was the hardest thing ever.

When Ninja Turtles ruled the world.


Boy meets world

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear


You remember boom boxes vs. CD players

You always said, “Then why don’t you marry it!”

You remember when everyone went slinky crazy.

You remember when razor scooters were cool.

Your a 90’s kid when you read this and smiled and laughed at least 5 of these.

Whats your favorite 90’s memory??
