What do you miss that you would add to this list?
OMG!! Nanobaby! (Also called tamagochi’s, etc.) I remember things got so out of hand, my elementary school banned them because we were all focusing on our gadgets (before cell phones were a thing..)
I could never get my nano baby to survive that long fyi…
I also want to add Hey Arnold! to this list. One of the best shows from the 90’s
I used to love how technology was not a big part of my childhood, and that my friends and I would spend countless hours playing baseball outside with a tennis ball until it got dark out. Nowadays, kids don’t experience the rawness of being so dirty and sweaty from playing all day in their yards, for they are focused on the darn internet. I do not know how I would live without my phone now, but I am so thankful to have experienced the innocence of life before the craze of fancy gadgets. Also, I absolutely LOVED Hey Arnold!! I know they played it for a while after midnight but now I am an adult and can never stay up that late so I don’t know what has happened with that. 🙂
This lol… for anyone who owned a VHS (you will remember):
The infamous VHS tapes! I had so many until just recently as a matter of fact. The thing I hated the most about them was that if you went to rent one from a video store like your local Blockbuster or Hollywood Video store, not everyone had the decency of rewinding the tape for the next viewer! It was a waste of time to sit there and have to wait until the movie would go back to the beginning. This brought back many memories, thanks for sharing.
omg yes!! Haha and you always hoped that you got a “good” copy of a vhs. You know how the video and sound would get even more muffled if you got a copy that was watched excessively? You almost wanted to get a few vhs copies of your favorite films to make sure they lasted

I wish that they would give Digimon a come back. The toys and games were awesome and when they remade the series they sort of ruined it…People are so obsessed with Pokemon, I mean come on I would choose a digimon over a pokemon anyday. Let’s just face the facts here… Digimon can talk and secondly… they can evolve and then resort back to their more cute and original state. just sayin…. i have no idea what Pikachu is saying literally the only character that makes sense half the time is Meowth.
