Top 5 Toys You Probably Had If You Were A 90s/00s Kid
The ‘90s and early 2000s were a simpler time and honestly some of the best times. We didn’t have as much technology, and life was simpler. We had some awesome toys that we wish were still as popular today.
If you were a kid during this time, you probably had at least one of these 5 toys.
#5 – HitClips
These digital audio players had one-minute snippets of your favorite pop song. First distributed by McDonalds, Radio Disney, and Lunchables, HitClips released music by Britney Spears and *NSYNC. Honestly, they were useless, but we thought we were cool if we had one.
#4 – Bop it!
BOP IT, TWIST IT, PULL IT! Bop It is an audio game that gave out commands on what to do next. There are numerous versions of this game to where they incorporated flick it at one point. You could play alone or with others. I always tried to beat the high score and never did, but I sure annoyed my whole family by playing it constantly.
#3 – Furby
If you were around for the Christmas of 1998, you probably had one of these on your list. Furbies were an electronic robotic toy that resembles an owl or hamster-like creature. Its speaking capabilities were translated into 24 languages.
#2 – Nintendo Gameboy Original
Before there were PSPs and Nintendo DS, there was the original Game Boy. It was a chunky device with a small green screen and five control buttons. It was not in color and the pixels were bad, but we survived.
#1 – Polly Pocket
Pocket-sized dolls same with rubber clothes and shoes and numerous accessories and playsets. They were like mini Barbie dolls, but you lost their pieces easier. Originally created in 1989, many 90s babies had these mini dolls in their toy collection. Did anyone else lose their shoes or was that just me?
