Back to the 90's - 12 things you love to remember

Posted on 3 Jul, 2014


The 90's are an era that we all love to reminisce about. From Kenan and Kel (who loves orange soda?) to Recess - most 90's kids will agree the TV was better, the videogames grainier, the internet MUCH slower, the fashion was questionable, the food contained more 5 E-Numbers than 5-a-day - but all in all, life was just better.

Here at GoGroopie we've put together tweleve of the very best in nostalgia-filled nuggets for you to enjoy - so from the Spice Girls to Super Nintendo, let's jump back a century and enjoy all thing's 90's.
 
1. Tv adverts
 
You've completely forgotten about them, but you still know every word.
 

Wassup?
 
2. Teletext 
 
Perfect for everything; weather, news, sports - even holidays, that was until the darned internet came along.
 
 
3. Loom Bracelets

4. Bernards Watch
 
At some point in your childhood - the ultimate goal was to have Bernard’s Watch. The kid didn't even use it to it's full potential.
 
 
5. Pogs 
 
Fights over games or trading could lead to an outright ban for everyone. But some teachers were never big on the idea of tossing heavy metal slammers around in the classroom.
 
 
6. Pokemon
 
Whether we're talking cards, games, playground fights over "shiny cards", the cartoon, the MOVIE (Remember the mewtwo card you got with your ticket?) Pokemon and the 90's go hand in hand
 
 
7. Videogames
 
Sonic, Mariokart, Sega, Atari - whatever your credence we were all fans of the videogames of the 90's - just remember to blow on your cartridges to get them working again!

8. Stationary
 
At school all you needed was a wetsuit-material pencil case, some smelly gel pens and everyone would be jealous.
 
 
9. Hair Chalk
 
Normally enough to get you sent home from School - hair chalk was the ultimate form of expression during the 90's (and you looked super cool at the school disco)
