Oh, we surely loved the '90s! From Saved by the Bell to Polly Pocket, these things make us seriously nostalgic:
1. Saved by the Bell
Saved by the Bell had us wishing we went to Bayside High and had part-time jobs at the Malibu Sands Beach Club. And don't even get us started on the emotional rollercoaster Zack and Kelly had us on for a good part of the early 90's.
2. Are You Afraid of the Dark?
We were huge fans of Nickelodeon's Are You Afraid of the Dark? The classic horror show, which ran as part of the SNICK lineup (along with a ton of our other favorite shows, such as Clarissa Explains It All), had us sleeping with the light on each Saturday night but it was so worth it.
3. Full House
"Everywhere you look..." Who remembers Full House's theme song? We do! The ABC sitcom followed a widowed father raising his three young daughters, and it was heartwarming and so funny. Michelle Tanner, we miss you!
One of the most beloved comedies of all time, Clueless was released in 1995 and is truly a cult classic. We still can't pinpoint a favorite scene because we just love all of it!
5. Dawson's Creek
Dawson's Creek, we miss you so! The teen drama premiered on The WB in 1998 and became part of a new craze for teen-themed movies and TV shows in America.
6. Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, & The Lion King
In the early 1990's, Disney released three of our most beloved films: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, & The Lion King. We dressed up like Belle for Halloween after Beauty and the Beast was released, sang like Princess Jasmine, and cried along with Simba after losing Mufasa.
7. Beverly Hills 90210
Beverly Hills 90210 was a defining point of the generation. It touched on so many serious subjects, while never alienating its teen audience. And that Brenda/Dylan/Kelly love triangle? Let's just say it's still talked about to this very day. The drama series was so popular that years later The CW launched a remake with the title 90210.
8. Dream Phone
"Who, who, who's got a crush on you?!" Our slumber parties were all about Dream Phone and Electronic Mall Madness! We could go on for hours playing these board games.
We were obsessed with Muppet Babies in the late 80's/early 90's, so when Nickelodeon premiered Rugrats in 1991, we were immediately hooked! Six cute little babies going on daily adventures...who wouldn't love it?
10. Spice Girls
Let's admit it, the Spice Girls are one of the biggest girl bands of all time! We owned every CD, the movie, collected the stickers found inside their lollipops, and couldn't stop singing the lyrics to "Wannabe."
11. Polly Pocket
Road trips with la familia? Polly Pocket always came along! It was the one toy that was compact, but had a ton of fun features. We couldn't put it down!
We all remember when Nintendo got upgraded to Super Nintendo. The new video game console took us from an 8-bit Mario Bros. world to an 16-bit one. You could catch us sitting in front of our TV screens for hours trying to beat the game.
From Lip Smackers to hair ties, we kept everything stored in our handy dandy Caboodles!
14. American Girl Dolls
There was nothing quite like an American Girl doll, especially Samantha, who sadly was discontinued. Sure, all you kids may still be shopping for American Girl dolls, but you'll never have the best one. Ha! Just kidding. We know, they're ALL great!
15. Backstreet Boys
Backstreet Boys wouldn't quit playing games with our hearts, and we couldn't stop buying each and every album.
Skip it, skip it! Despite banging our ankles a few times, we had a blast playing with Skip-It as kids.
17. Lisa Frank
For us, a new school year meant new Lisa Frank binders, notebooks, stickers, and lots more. We couldn't get enough!
18. Easy Bake Oven
Whipping up cookies and brownies was a cinch with the Easy Bake Oven. You know it was the best!
19. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
We use to run home after school to catch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers on Fox's afternoon lineup. Anyone else make believe to be the pink ranger? Oh, just us? Okay.
*NSYNC, it was always so hard to really make the choice between you five and the Backstreet Boys. "(Hey, hey) Bye, bye bye!"
21. Britney Spears & Christina Aguilera
We can't forget the 90's battle of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. But what we still don't get is — why did people think they had to choose? We loved them both equally!
