They just don't make them like they used to

I mean, how awesome were the 90's? I kind of wish I was a year or two older so that I could have really been able to take in all of the goodness that it was. I was almost too young to really be able to appreciate such great music, fabulous tv shows, and let us not forget the amazing toys we used to have back in the day..

I could never keep him alive. He was digital, yet he still pooped everywhere. A friend of mine let me borrow hers for the night. I took it home and Salem died. I freaked out, and so did my parents, because I didn't know you could bring him back to life by hitting the reset button on the back. My parents were so upset, because they thought I had ruined this poor girl's toy and they were going to have to buy her another one to replace it. 

I don't think I ever actually played a real whole game of mouse trap. I just set up  the plastic pieces and let it fly. 

I'm not sure why we actually liked these stupid things. I mean, it's not like they did anything.. 

What I would giiiiiive to have this delicious nectar of the gods back!

I think every girl either had, or wanted, one of these. I never actually got mine to work as well as it did for the chicks on the commercial, but I still thought I was cool.

I actually had this exact Polly Pocket. All of the pieces in the bottom popped out and were stamps! Those toy makers were just absolutely brilliant in the glory days.

This game was so much fun. It was great for road trips.

I remember asking for a yo-yo. my parents bought me and old school one. I had to save my allowance and go by the cool motorized light up ones like these. These were so dumb, but we all wanted one.
