Bring on the nostalgia!
If you were a kid in the 80’s or 90’s, your Christmas list probably featured some of these, “must have” toys. Perhaps these nostalgic toys belonged to your friends, or you only were able to play with them at the babysitters! It may be that some of these toys, you don’t want to remember at all *COUGH* furbees *Cough, cough*.
Here’s your list of the 16 most sought after toys of the 90’s that you begged the man in the North Pole for.
1. Doodle Bears
Tie-dyed, washable, artistic masterpieces.
2. Beanie Babies
… and who could forget Chip?
3. Puppy Surprise
Puppies and surprises? Surprises about puppies?!
You hoped and hoped that your dog was overly fertile.
You probably sung the commercial more than you played the game because the pieces were always missing.
Why they were awesome: Were they? Or were they little DEVILS. How many times did you have to lock these bad boys up in your closet as they lulled, “Kah/may-may/u-nye” (I love you).
Did all moms hate Furbees or just mine? BONUS points if you had siblings which resulted in 4 Furbees whining in unison.
6. Teksta Dog
A toy dog that can land (debatable) a back flip?! How futuristic for the 90’s.
7. Pocket Locker
To store all of your secrets in an almost cellphone!
I used this as a diary AND to pass notes to friends. It probably contained secrets such as, “My brother smells like farts”.
Bop it! Tap it! Twist it! Throw it! Across the room!
Bop It was the cause of family drama in my house as everyone wanted a turn (strangely enough – the Gilmore Girls used their Bop It to defuse arguments).
9. Barbie Power-Wheels
They see me rollin’, they diaper, patrollin’, tryin’ to catch me ridin’ dirty.
Side note: Apparently now parents can drive their kids around with a remote?! We never had Mercedes Power Wheels in my day…
Mercedes SLS for your toddler comes with parental remote so you can drive them around! only at www.jaygoodys.com #toys #toddler #family #fun #mom #kids #kid #toycar #powerwheels #firstbirthday #oneyearold #2ndbirthday #3rdbirthday #4thbirthday #prek #children #exotic #cars #coolkids #Christmas #holidays #holiday
SANTA CLAUSE IF YOU’RE LISTENING – MOM NEVER CAME THROUGH WITH THIS ONE.
10. Polly Pocket
Why it was awesome: Because who wouldn’t like to live in a house shaped like a star?
Whether you had classic Polly:
Or maybe you were the friend with the entire collection (POLLY MANSIONS GIMME!):
11. Skip It
Maybe you had it in pink, maybe you had it in purple. Maybe you had it in pink and purple because your parents ran over it when you left it in the driveway… twice.
It’s crazy/awesome that kids today are still playing with these!
A futuristic pet for you to take care of? Who responded to the bone you held in front of it’s face? Magic!
Cool Blue Barbie! Back in the good old days….
Number 2- Cool Blue Barbie, I mean- who didn't love this line?!? The whole group fits into my second favorite on the list. I love the overalls, the beanies and baby backpacks- I just love it all! They even had posable bodies!!!! This set of dolls is currently on my 'must buy again' list and I can promise you they'll be in my collection soon! #stormiestudios #dolls #fashiondolls #90s #countdown #dolls #barbiedolls #barbie #barbiefashionistas #coolbliebarbie #purplepanic #nikki #perfectpink #teresa #electricgreen #skipper
Modern Barbie, cynical and funny as people have made her, just isn’t the same:

14. Action Man
Man he was cool…
15. Sally Secrets
That outfit and PERM thoughhhhhhh:
16. MY LITTLE PONY
“MY LITTLE PONY, MY LITTLE PONNNNNY, What is friendship alllllll about?”
Here’s the theme song from the 80’s to now in case you want to sing along:
Did we miss any of your favourites? Write them in the comments.
My parents just sent me this. Every Beanie Baby (347 of them not pictured) that I so devoutly sought after every birthday, Christmas, Easter and McDonald's Happy Meal from 95-99 have bypassed their intended eBay prize winning "Collectors Item" sale price and are headed straight to the local GoodWill. Feeling nostalgic for the 90s. #RIP #BeanieBabies #ninetiestoys #goodwill cc: @myeverydayjoys @jstack18 @colbyjstackhouse
