I was born in 1985, so I am a baby of the 80's and a child of the 90's. I remember 27/44 trends of the 80's. As for the 90's... EVERY SINGLE FAD! No lie. :mrgreen: I loved growing up in the 90's.

Miranda_ 02-15-2010 11:14 AM


Another one I'd add to the list is as follows. I remember when Sonic the Hedgehog was just that; Sonic, by himself, no sidekicks and no friends. XD I had the first ever Sonic game and got freaked out by the drowning music; it still freaks me out, actually. XD

Elanorea 02-15-2010 11:33 AM

Good times, good times... I remember wanting a Tamagotchi so bad, and I think I still have a slinky hidden away in a desk drawer.

Catlover642 02-15-2010 07:34 PM

Cookie_Crumps 02-19-2010 03:25 PM

I couldn't really enjoy the 90's cause I was born 1998 :mrgreen:

belladoggy 02-19-2010 03:42 PM

I am like a half-child of the 90s because I was born in 1993, but I do remember a good majority of those fads. I also wonder what is so special about the 200s....

angel_deceiver 02-19-2010 04:16 PM

you know whats funny? I dont know if anyone watches sponge bob but there is a boy band called "Boys who cry" whom they pretty much based of "New Kids on the Block"
all of the songs Boys who cry sing are spoofs from new kids on the block, its kinda off topic but hillarious none the less.
Stupid New kids on the block
