Ready to start reliving your childhood? Here are 20 of the best and most nostalgia inducing toys from the ’90s.

Tamagotchi Friends

My best friend growing up (just kidding) but these little egg shaped friends were addictive and time-consuming when we didn’t all have smartphones. They haven’t changed too much (surprisingly), just a little bigger and you can now connect and interact with other Tamagotchi Friends.

Hasbro Bop It!

Can you hear that Bop It! commercial in your head now? Hasbro has updated them with a lot more crazy maneuvers but it’s still the same overall game. Your kids will have a blast trying to outlast each other.

Creepy Crawlers

It doesn’t seem like the same brand is producing these anymore but these used to be a lot of fun. You can still find a variation of the creepy crawler idea with fun, gross experiments and bug makers.

Pokémon Trading Cards

If you missed out on the original Pokémon craze I feel sorry for you. You can still fulfill your childhood dream of catching all the Pokémon cards since you can probably afford to buy as many as you want now. Pokémon cards are still incredibly popular these days but there’s 802 to catch now. I miss the old days of the original 151.

Beanie Babies

I kind of regret buying into this fad but everybody thought Beanie Babies were gonna be worth a lot some day. The big winner here was the company producing these collectibles and making bank. You can still buy them today if you’re still into it.

Moon Shoes

Basically mini trampolines that you strap to your feet. With that amazing childhood imagination of yours you could pretend you were walking on the moon. If you try wearing them as an adult you’ll look really cool. /s

Furby

These were so crazily popular that parents would fight over them in stores. They were always a little creepy to me. Nowadays they’re more advanced and can be connected to the Furby Connect app for more phrases and eye animations. If I were to buy one I’d get the Star Was Furbacca which looks pretty awesome.

Koosh Ball

Safe to throw and easy to catch. The bigger your Koosh the more popular you were in school. You probably still have one lying around in an old box somewhere in your attic.

Buy on Amazon

Nerf Guns

Nerfs Guns are actually more popular than ever and way more advanced. There are tons of Nerf Guns to choose from with crazy designs and shooting much more rapidly than the single shooter I had growing up. Heck it would be pretty fun to have an adult Nerf Gun battle with the big guns.

Buy on Amazon

Polly Pocket

The original Polly Pockets were popular and little girls took them everywhere with them. These days kids are into the digital Polly Pocket.

3-Dimensional Pin Art Board Toy

You probably played with one of these in your dentist’s waiting room. A classic novelty toy that is surprisingly fun and entertaining. Great for relaxing with or distracting your kids.

Twister Moves Skip-It

You’ll feel like a ’90s kid again and get some exercise at the same time. These are still fun and you can even add them to your workout routine. Get your kids involved and keep them active with this too.

Buy on Amazon

The Original Big Wheel Tricycle

You won’t be fitting in one of these anymore, but you can still buy your kid the classic Big Wheel Tricyle. Every kid wanted one of these when they were little and you should pass down that same feeling to your kids. They’ll be zipping around in no time and getting some exercise too.

Pogo Stick

Whatever happened to Pogo Sticks? At least I never really hear about them anymore, but they were definitely popular in the ’90s. These days a number of companies produce them and they appear to be pretty high quality now. We suggested the adult one, but if you want a Pogo Stick for kids take a look here.

Buy on Amazon

Devil Sticks

Devil Sticks are still really fun and are great for improving your hand-eye coordination. They’re the same simple sticks as always but there’s a lot of tricks that can be done. Fun for beginners and experts alike.

Fisher-Price Grow with Me Roller Skates

These are the perfect beginner roller skates for teaching your child how to skate safely, so I am quite happy that Fisher-Price is still producing these. They are really fun for kids and help them build confidence and improve as they go. Especially great for timid kids or those afraid to fall. Couldn’t recommend them more!

Buy on Amazon

POGS

Oh Pogs. Whatever happened to you? We used to play you all the time during recess and lunch and trade and collect as many as we could.

Super Soaker

Some of the most childhood fun anybody ever had. Playing with Super Soakers was a great way to cool down during the hot summers and play pranks. They’re still very popular and with improved and crazier designs.

Buy on Amazon

Stretch Armstrong

An absolute ’90s classic. One of my favorite childhood toys. Keep stretching him and he’ll always keep returning to his original shape. They’ve finally re-released him and it’s worth every penny. A nice stress reliever or fidget toy for kids too.

Buy on Amazon

Wild West Metal Cap Gun

Your imagination would run wild when you played with cap guns. I’m not sure about the quality of the current cap guns but they still use the same paper roll caps. Lots of fun playing cops and robbers with these!
