The nineties were a great time to be a kid. As we age, we begin to miss what seems to be so recent in your mind. There is so much to choose from, so the following list is not the best of the 90’s, but my most missed. Items that were once a highly demanded product, turned to a slight memory.
1. Koala Yummies
One thing I miss most about my time as a child in the 1990’s was Koala Yummies. The little cookies with a koala printed on each one, filled with chocolate, and so deliscious. A once booming product can now nearly only be found at F.Y.I. stores.
One thing I loved back then, but can’t remember why, was Furbies. Creepy little creatures that were a must-have toy amongst children. Originally released at $35, the price quickly raised with demand, and were $100 each, and were even sold for up to $300, and $400. Furby had it’s own language as welll; which was pointless, because no one knew Furby. Some of the things Furby said included, “u-nye-way-loh-nee-way,” which meant, “Go to sleep now.” Another was, “yoo?,” or, “Why will you not play with me today?” During a twelve month period, 27 million Furby toys were sold, according to Tiger Electronics, the maker of the Furby.
3. Nintendo 64
Something I actually do miss from the nineties was N64, or Nintendo 64, named for its 64-bit CPU, released in 1996. With a total of 387 games, like Super Mario 64, NFL Blitz, and GoldenEye 007, Nintendo 64 was one of my favorite gaming systems yet. As a person who doesn’t care about graphics or details, I was only concerned about fun, and that’s what N64 was.
Fourth on my list is 1990’s Nickelodeon. Created on April 1, 1979, the channel has a long history. But my favorite decade of the Nick, was the 90’s. Holding a long list of great shows for kids, I was a Nickelodeon fanatic, as many others were, but will not confess. I loved shows like the gnarly group of extreme kids, known as RocketPower, the goofy antics of Kenan & Kel, competativeness CatDog, and the child’s Saturday Night Live, All That. I have a family of six, four children, so these shows entertained us as a family for hours and hours. The company shows no signs of slowing down, with top rated shows, and childhood superstars like Spongebob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer, Blue’s Clues, iCarly, and much more.
5. Oregon Trail Day
The final thing I miss about the 1990’s was a class in school. The one day all kid’s couldn’t wait for, Oregon Trail day, in computer lab. A game that tests knowledge, judgement, and ability, turned out to be the best part of school. I loved the nineties, and being a kid in such a fun decade.
I had a huge list of things that I miss about the time, so here are a few other things that I miss, but not enough to make the list; Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Goosebumps, snap bracelets, Power Rangers, Saved by the Bell, Pogs, GigaPets, Ninja Turtles, TheWB, Are You Afraid of the Dark, Pinky and the Brain, Angry Beavers, Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan, and saying, “Psyche!,” and, “Not!” I hope you got the daydream flashback you were hoping for, I know I did.
