Some 90s trends are coming back and some have celebrated turning 20. Us 90s kids didn’t grow up with iPads and iPhones, but yet we had the best childhood. Listed below are 90 favorites from the 90s…as if we haven’t felt old enough yet.


“My all-time favorite cartoon was Rugrats when I was growing up, I begged my mom every day until she bought the Rugrats movie for me and my brother. We watched that VHS so much that it broke and mom had to buy us a new one,” Jennifer Susnic said.

TV Shows

”My mom was obsessed with the show Friends. Every week when the new episodes would come out, we would grab a pillow and my sister and me would lay down on the floor and watch it with her. We were too young to understand half of what was going on, but we would laugh along with our mom at the parts she found comical. This is one of the many shows I probably should not have been watching. Friends will forever be a great go-to show,” Morgan Deters said.

“The first album I ever owned was Britney Spears. I was only three years old and I wanted to be just like her. She was my absolute favorite and I even dressed up as her for Halloween one year. My favorite thing was this behind the scenes special about her music video for ‘Stronger,’ where she used a chair in the dance and I would try to copy it with my little plastic chair and fake microphone. It was a performance,” Taylor Heady said.

“One of my most distant memories is when the Yu-Gi-Oh movie came out. All of the AMC theaters handed out some random cards to the people who bought a ticket to see the movie. I was standing in line when they handed me a card I was promised. The card I was handed was a “Blue Eyed White Dragon” and all of my friends were super duper jealous,”  Chris Hoffman said.

“I feel like in almost every photo of me as a child I am wearing overalls of some kind – usually with a slap bracelet or two and platform sandals. The funny thing is that for a while I absolutely hated them, but now they’re back in style and I’m obsessed with them. They’re so comfy. Minus the slap bracelets,” Taylor Heady said.
