My Forgotten Favorites:
I was totally obsessed with Barbies growing up. I always wanted the latest ones and loved to style them. I had so many barbie clothes and loved going to flea markets to get custom made clothes. Yes, I was that crazy!
I had a girlie side to me that loved Barbies, but I also had a tom-boy side. I LOVED Hotwheels. If I wasn’t asking for Barbies for Christmas, I was asking for Hotwheels. I have two brothers so I was always playing with them. We would build huge tracks and have competitions. It was so much fun.
I am sure many of you 90’s babies know this product! I totally had one (actually 2) and I loved playing with it. I totally loved watching my little guy grow up and loved feeding him. My poor parents would stay up at night taking care of the poop and feeding while I slept. Lucky for them, I stopped playing with them (haha)!
4.) Bananas In Pyjamas
Haha! Do You Remember Banans In Pyjamas?!!! Click To Tweet
Okay, this was my show! The song was so catchy and I just loved everything about the Bananas! My brothers and I would go around the house singing the song in our pajamas. I just loved all the adventures they would go on! I added an episode to jog your memory. If you have never heard of this show, you have now!
5.) Sally Hanson Diamond Lip Treatment
These were my jam as a tween. My friends and I tried to collect them all. You weren’t cool unless you has at least 10 of them in your purse.
6.) Victoria Secret Makeup + Secret Fantasy Products
Another one of my beauty obsessions as a kid. I LOVED VS makeup and body products. I would wait for the semi-annual sales to stock up on all their beauty and body products. I would seriously save all my money for this sale. I went crazy! At least half of my makeup collection was VS makeup.
7.) Gel Pens
I collected these and had over 1,000 gel pens. I was totally obsessed. I had a huge container with every color you could imagine. I loved the swirl pens the best (the ones with 2+ colors swirled around). I used them all the time and even traded them at school.
In elementary school, I was obsessed with yo-yos. I had a few yo-yo books and would practice doing tricks all day long. They were even banned from my school because kids would get hurt trying tricks. They were also very distracting but so much fun!
I was always riding my bike as a kid. I loved riding it up and down the driveway. We lived on a fairly busy road so I wasn’t allowed to ride my bike on the street. Thankfully, we had a long driveway. I totally need to start riding bikes again.
10.) Clue – The Game
I LOVED this game so much! I would play it constantly with my family. I always wanted to be the murderer (I promise I am not crazy) and wanted no one to figure it out. I didn’t win the game very often, but I loved playing it!
11.) Big Comfy Couch
Another one of my favorite shows as a kid. I loved Molly and Loonette! I also loved when the dust bunnies would make their appearance. I totally wished my couch has all the stuff that the Big Comfy Couch had. This show was just so awesome. Youtube has so many episodes. I am totally going to rewatch them (haha)!
12.) Guess Who?
Omgsh, was I obsessed with this game?!! I would play it for hours on end. I was actually pretty good at it too. I usually won!
13.) Hair Mousse + Hair Gel
My go to style as a tween was scrunched hair. I would drown my hair with mousse and gel so that it would last all day. It literally was so hard and crunchy, but I loved it.
14.) Stuffed Animals
I totally collected stuffed animals when I was a kid. I could barely fit on my bed because I would be surrounded by so many. Remember Beanie Babies? I would sleep with all those too!
15.) Makeup Books
My obsession with makeup started at a very young age. I collected makeup books and would read them front to back. I soaked in all the information and would constantly buy more. I dreamed of being a famous makeup artist and a dermatologist at the same time.
