90s Born and Bred
Posted on 01 April 2016
Oh, the nineties- a time of super soakers, slip and slides, and of course the amazing easy bake oven, we had the dopest time didn’t we?”
One of my personal favorite things about the 90s was the amazingly delicious but not nutritious Dunkaroos. If you brought lunch to school in a typical brown paper bag then you would always bring a Dunkaroo. This was the sweet snack of all 90s kids. It was a cookie that you could dunk into some delicious icing and just about every kids’ favorite part of the day.
The nineties wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t talk about the notorious Beanie Babies. Every kid had their fair share of Beanie Babies, we would name them all and you were never a true Beanie Baby owner if you tore the label off. What is crazy about these little stuffed animals is how rare and expensive the originals have become. Yes, I know I shouldn’t have given my Beanie Babies away when I got older. If you want to check out some of the most expensive Bennie Babies go to http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Media/Slideshow/2015/02/27/15-Most-Valuable-Beanie-Babies, here you will find the Employee Bear is valued at $2,000-$3,000!
Moving on to something more technical we have the i-pod of the 90s, which was called the Walkman. Everyone who was born in this decade will forever remember the day they got their first Walkman. It was the pinnacle of being a cool kid when you could walk around and listen to the Backstreet Boys or N’Sync as many times as you wanted.
Another technical novelty was the beautiful Nintendo 64! Back when you could see every pixel that went into the game and Super Smash Bros was number one on your Christmas List. What makes the Nintendo 64 so amazing is how people are reverting back to this ultimate game even though the technology of the XBOX has far surpassed the Nintendo 64. People just love the originals and that is exactly what the Nintendo is.
Now this next category can go two ways. The 90s was a great time for our favorite movie classics like Jurassic Park, Sixth Sense, Men in Black, Mission: Impossible, and Silence of the lambs to name a few. However, the 90s were also the Disney Renaissance age. It started a year before the 90s however a lot of the movies were released in the late 90s, including Tarzan, Hercules, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and many more. No one can doubt that this decade was filled with some amazing classics that are still popular in today’s generation of kids.
