A Look-back in 90s and the Christmas Gifts ideas at that time

I was a kid back in 90’s and hence I totally relate to these gift ideas, its fun to watch how christmas ideas change from time to time.

Mall Madness

It’s a regular board game, but get this…IT TALKS!

Gak

You probably paid one of your friends to eat Gak in middle school. Then he got really sick and had to call his mom to take him to the doctor. Or was that just me?

My Little Pony

You didn’t realize you were a Brony as a child, did you?

LEGOs

No one built the thing on the front of the box. You ended up dumping them all in a plastic bin and then just tried to see how big of a tower you could build before your dog knocked it over.

Crossfire

The commercial for Crossfire was more exciting and intense than all three Expendables movies combined.

Dear Diary

Now there’s no chance your brother could find out who you have a crush on. Not because of the security, but because that screen was so hard to read even you couldn’t tell what you wrote.

Easy Bake Oven

Who doesn’t love a good brownie cooked with a lightbulb?

Lazer Tag

If you covered up your sensor with one hand so you couldn’t get tagged you’re a monster and I don’t want to be friends anymore.

Wrestling Buddies

I was always troubled by the width of the shoulders on Wrestling Buddies. Is that scoliosis?

My Pet Monster

I used to let my Wrestling Buddies and My Pet Monster wrestle against me for the WWF championship on my trampoline. Somehow I never lost.

Skip-It

Who thought it was a good idea to make a toy that was designed to make you trip and fall on the sidewalk?

Tiger Handheld Games

The screen was so bad on these things that you could play for 20 minutes before realizing the batteries had died.

Pokemon

If you didn’t have Red and Blue, get out of my face right now.

Gameboy Color

The regular Gameboy became a giant piece of trash when these amazing, new Gameboy Colors came out. I mean, it’s in color!

Moon Shoes

If you had Moon Shoes, you went to the hospital as a result of your Moon Shoes.

Furby

People were stabbed while trying to purchase a Furby for their kid. Now you can buy them at CVS for $6.99.

Tamagotchi

I still have panic attacks thinking about the time I forgot my Tamagotchi at home when we went on vacation. I hope he didn’t suffer.

My Buddy/Kid Sister

How has no rapper sampled the My Buddy and Kid Sister theme song yet?

Dream Phone

You could stay home on the weekend and play a board game about calling guys to see if they like you, oooor you could just pick up your phone and try it in real life?

Care Bears

Did anyone else paint one of their logos on your stomach and try to fire out a rainbow like the Care Bears did? No? Anyone?

Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles

One time my mom took my friend Jay and I to the store and we found six Ninja Turtles he didn’t have and one that I didn’t have. He grabbed the one and refused to let me buy it. I didn’t speak to him for three years after that.

Talkboy

Of course it was just a tape recorder, but Kevin McCallister used it to book a hotel room and fight criminals! I NEED it!

Super Mario Bros 3

No other game made me think I could get closer to a girl by playing a flute.

Super Soaker

Let’s be honest, the biggest status symbol of a kid in the 90s was the size of your Super Soaker. If you had one of the massive models with a water tank on your back, you basically owned that town.

Discman

Throw those tapes in the trash! This is a compact disc house now!

Cabbage Patch Kids

Sure they were popular, but weren’t you just a little terrified of farmers when you found out these babies were grown out of a cabbage patch? What was he doing with all of those children?

Teddy Ruxpin

There was nothing that made you feel cooler than taking out the regular Teddy Ruxpin tape and putting in MC Hammer so it looked like Teddy was rapping.

Super Nintendo

What a fantastic name to make kids want a video game system. “Oh you have a Nintendo? That’s cute. I have a SUPER Nintendo.”

Power Wheels

If there was a girl in your neighborhood that you had a crush on, but your friend Timothy also liked her and he had a Power Wheels, you’d might as well just admit defeat and move on.

Nintendo 64

If you don’t think the Nintendo 64 is the top gift, ask yourself how many house you spent riding around on a jet ski in Wave Race. You weren’t even racing. You were just cruising around doing flips off of ramps.
