      geez this thread got lost in the mix...I've posted before but I feel like re-living my childhood today

      I don't know if Cootie's was from the 90's or if they were older, but I loved those things




      Doodle Bear, went everywhere I went



      Trolls were more of a collection than playing with them..but I'd change their outfits

      Highlights from my 90s:









      Getting home from school and taping Simpsons episodes, meticulously pausing the recording during commercials so I could watch them straight through in posterity.

      The first car I owned, in 1999 - a 94 XLT Explorer just like this one.

      Man I wish mine had been dark blue. I took so much crap for the stupid electric blue color. The auto 4x4 didn't work but I could still peel out in reverse.

      Any robin that laid an egg that color you would definitely want to screen for radiation exposure. It was definitely 90s though.

      holy crap i LOVED Funco so much better than gamestop they used to give you more if the game was in good condition and had the box and everything not to mention the WALL of New games and you could play any game you wanted and never once did they rape you on a trade in

      i sold them my ps1 like a month after it came out (my dads friend was the largest sony importer in the us at the time so i had it a good month before it hit stores) i got MORE than i paid for it, i became friends with a few guys that worked there and they would let me hang out for hours just playing games and shooting the ****
