During our growing up days we always thought that we would never be like our previous generations but end up copying them in our subconscious mind. What about the grandpa tales that kick off with the ubiquitous “back in my day”? Maybe you have never figured out that would be you but guess what? You are growing old (beg pardon, you’re “maturing”). Kids these days live in a different world. They don’t battle over Pogs or get up on Saturday morning to watch Thundercats. Hey, have you done so? Check out these 20 best things about growing up in the 90s.
Here Are The 20 Best Things About Growing Up In The 90s
1. You basically learned to read because of Goosebumps
It may seem unbelievable but children read books before Harry Potter.
2. You can sing and/or dance to “Ice, Ice, Baby” and “Macarena”
If you missed any of those the best things about growing up then I must say you have missed something and you missed a great decade.
3. You forgot to feed your Tamagotchi
Have you experienced the emotional hardship of losing a false pet after forgetting to feed it false food? Then I can say that you grew up in the 90s.
4. You fought people for Pogs and Beanie Babies
In the 90s the girls were occupied in gathering overpriced stuffed animals and the boys were engaged in storing thousands of cardboard disks. Can you remember?
5. You had a pager
It can be astonishing that some people still use the pager. Some of them still go to the post office too. Obliteration just takes some time.
6. You had to have a Trapper Keeper
Remember big inessential pockets, lousy colors, bizarre cartoons…. obviously the 90s.
7. You know how to place a collect call
Maybe you haven’t seen it but once upon a time phones were fixed with wires and the wires were fixed to the wall in big boxes that needed coins to run. As we know, these kinds of best things about growing up, even you probably see some of them strewn about the streets of big cities. If you didn’t get it yet then you aren’t a 90’s kid.
8. You know what it means to get slimed
Though Nickelodeon was permanently linked with green slime, the 90’s made them almost synonymous.
9. You know what these are
Have you ever seen the save icon in almost every software program? Then definitely you grew in the ’90s.
10. You owned scrunchies
In the ’90s the girls used this….. not one, but dozens.
11. You spent a significant amount of time locating Carmen Sandiego
you must have known the thrill of locating Carmen Sandiego, a globe-trotting red-coated villain who haunts your dreams at night. Then you are a kid of the 90s.
12. You spent hours rewinding one of these
Have you tried a #2 pencil to rewind the tape to find a particular part of a song? No doubt, you’re a 90’s kid.
13. You thought dial-up was super fast
If you’re a 90’s kid then you must have the experience of downloading 1 movie in 2 days. It was a matter of the best things about growing up that you found out without subtitles.
14. You’ve got the 90s look
Still, now you wear dresses like the above picture. You’re awesome and surely you’re a 90’s kid.
15. You understand the Dewey Decimal System
If you can’t differentiate a library from a computer lab then obviously you aren’t a kid of 90.
16. You watched movies on one of these
With below an average image quality, without any menu and extra features, the VHS was ordinary….. and obviously from the 90.
17. You wonder what happened to all the good cartoons
If you are a 90’s kid then you must have watched Looney Tunes, Speedy Gonzales, Thundercats, and many more. How wonderful those best things about growing up today!
18. You wore slap bracelets
Each 90’s child knows the real meaning of impossible – not continuously smacking your bracelet onto your wrist.
19. You’ve seen a standalone fax machine
Now only corporates and third wold bureaucracies used this fax machine but in the ’90s this was pretty normal.
20. TGIF = TV
Keep in mind.
