    Let's all reminisce and define what it means to be a 90s kid shall we? :cool:

    Basically, post things you remember from growing up in the 90s (I'm assuming most of us grew up in the 90s, but if not, post something if you remember anyway :p)

    You're a 90s kid if you knew that Kimberly (the pink ranger), and Tommy (the green ranger) were meant to be together.

    Point of clarification, what age is considered a 90's kid. Are we talking teenager or younger.

    Doesn't that make you an '80s kid and a '90s tween/teenager?

    That was all 90s too! :p

    90s...let's see

    I remember Goosebumps, Monica (you know which one), supersoakers (the kinds with fancy spouts and multiple tanks :p), those yo-yos that were tricked out so you could walk the dog for days, the iMac coming out, everything being ".com-ed," and of course the Pogs!

    Oh yeah, and Power Rangers had nothing on Beast Wars. :cool:

    Nickelodeon in general (the good stuff), Beige Computers (haha), Cartridge game systems, PokéMon cards AND GameBoy Game, Smurfs, ridiculous toys like Moon Shoes and bop-it, Having your favorite cartoons on VHS tape, Taping things with your VCR so you wouldn't miss them, Not knowing OJ Simpson for anything good, BILL CLINTON, cheesy group pop bands like Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys, hair styles like the "duck-cut", probably the last generation to actually choose going outside over electronics because they kinda still sucked (B&W Gameboys, Dial-up internet, terrible load times on PS1, PC gaming was limited to a few classic games like Doom and Wolfenstein), SURGE the soda, the old department stores like Ames, Bradlees and Caldors, Capri Sun juice and GIGA PETS!!!

    Yep. It was the good life.

    Nope. Those, plus the Smurfs, Gummi Bears, and The Real Ghostbusters are all from the 80's.


    Lethal

    EDIT: Batman: The animated series, the X-men cartoon, and Animaniacs are 90's though.
