AOL IM: Don’t act like you don’t miss screen names. (Mine was xxprncsscutiexx. Don’t judge.)

[source]

Beanie Babies: These little guys were all I wanted for birthday presents!

[source]

The Berenstain Bears: One of the best kid’s books ever, no question.

[source]

Old School Britney Spears: Remember when Brit was “innocent”?

[source]

Carmen Sandiego: Everyone played this game at least once. And the show? Awesome.

[source]

Giant Cell Phones: They were big… but at least they didn’t get lost in your bag!

[source]

’90s Disney Shows: So much better than Hannah Montana.

[source]

Stick-On Earrings: As in, literally stickers. Keeping it classy.

[source]

Fruit Stripe Gum: Tattoos included. WHY IS THIS NOT SOLD ANYMORE?!

[source]

Furby: They had their own language . . . and were really kind of freaky.

[source]

Game Boys: They might not be as hi-tec as an iPad, but who cares? These things were awesome.

[source]

Goosebumps: I’ll admit it – these books gave me nightmares.

[source]

Anything to do with Titanic: In Legos? Pure genius.

[source]

Lisa Frank: These too-cute designs were all over my notebooks, my lockers, my folders…

[source]

Old School My Little Pony: The new show is cute and all, but they were cuter then!

[source]

Minesweeper: Who else remembers playing this for hours on end?!

[source]

Mix Tape Cassettes: Remember taping all your fave songs off the radio (before Napster, that is!)

[source]

Old School MK and Ashley: They made me wish I was a twin.

[source]

Pogs: They had no purpose and I freaking loved them.

[source]

Pokemon: Way too many hours were spent trading these and praying to get a rare card…

[source]

Polly Pocket: A tiny little world for a tiny little doll? These never stopped being fun.

[source]

Skip It: Only one of the best outdoor toys ever.

[source]

Sky Dancers: So, they didn’t do much, but they were soooo pretty

[source]

Tamagotchi: Don’t act like you didn’t wake up in the middle of the night to feed this little guy.

[source]

Old School Will Smith: We love Will now, but his Fresh Prince and “Miami” days were definitely his best look.

[source]

I'm a cashier at Walmart. I've never seen them. I haven't seen them anywhere in a loong time! What state do you live in?
