9 Things From the ’90s That You Totally Forgot About

The ’90s were a very interesting decade that churned out some popular products, shows and icons (think All That, Judy Blume, Friends and scrunchies)! Along with those infamous MP3 players and Kid Pix, here are nine things from the ’90s that you might have forgotten about:

1. Slap Bracelets

These were the big thing in grade school, though we now realize they were pretty much just pieces of metal covered in fuzzy fabric.

2. Skip-Its

Was this a toy or an exercise tool? Either way, Skip-Its were super popular in the early ’90s!

3. Paper Fortune Tellers

How else would you know what your future holds?

4. Milky Pens

If you had a piece of black paper and one of these pens, you knew what you were going to be doing all class…

5. Mary-Kate and Ashley Movies

Passport to Paris, It Takes Two, Switching Goals… the list goes on and on! Also, can we just acknowledge the fact that it says “videocassette” in this movie poster?

6. “Summer Girls” by LFO

“New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits, Chinese food makes me sick, and I think it’s fly when girls stop by for the summer, for the summer…”

7. Aaron Carter

Does “I Want Candy” ring a bell?

8. The Baby-sitters Club

Did anyone else want to be a member of this Stoneybrook-based club?

9. Dunkaroos

Graham crackers and pure sugar? Yum! These were in pretty much every student’s lunchbox.
