You know you're a 90's kid if...

You can finish this [Ice Ice _ _ _ _ ]

You remember watching:
- The Bugs Bunny Show
- Ren & Stimpy
- Pinky and the Brain

You just cant resist finishing this . . . "Iiiiiiin West Philidelphia,
born and raised . . ."

You remember:
- Playschool with Monica
- Step by Step
- Family Matters
- Dinosaurs
- Boy Meets World

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons. (Saturday Disney, anyone?)

Paul Jennings and Andy Griffiths were the funniest authors of all time.

You watched Round the Twist!

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

You said "NOT" after (almost) every sentence . . . not

When everything was settled by:
- Rock, Scissors, Paper.. ROOCK OFF!!!... some of us 90's kids still do it :P
- Dip dip...
- There's a party by the pool, would you like to come?
- Eeny, meeny, miny, mo!

When we played Tiggy, Safe, 40/40 and Hide & Seek until our legs grew numb.

You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record your FAVORITE
song of ALL time.

Tazos owned chip packets.

The Spice Girls had serious girl power...

...and the Backstreet Boys simply ruled.

Captain Planet. He's a Hero.

You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.

You remember watching Home Alone 1, 2 , and 3 . . . and tried to pull the
pranks on "intruders"

You remember watching:
- Agro's Cartoon Connection
- Sale of the Century with Glen Ridge & Nicky Buckley (hopefully only
with your parents).

You remember when Yo-Yos were cool.

You remember those Where's Wally books.

You remember eating Warheads.

You remember watching:
- Ninja Turtles *first and the best!!!*
- Jurassic Park
- 3 Ninjas movies

You remember Push Pops and Lucky Dips.

And YoGo gorilla... and the original Cocoa Pops monkey: "It's just like a
chocolate milkshake - only crunchy!"

Tamagotchis had to be banned in school because of their popularity.

Furby.

Basketball cards and the arguments as to whether fleer or upperdeck were
the best ones.

FastFoward was the greatest sketch show on TV.

You haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.

"Emo" didn't exist.

You watched the original shows of Rugrats, Power Rangers, and Ninja
Turtles. None of that modern manga crap.

You knew Michael Jordan was the best all-time basketballer who played for
the Chicago Bulls, even though we don't follow NBL basketball.

World 4 Kids, before Toys R Us.

The original five dollar notes.

You understand when I say "Cheez TV".

You collected all the Troll dolls.

If you even know what a walkman is.

You know the Macarena off by heart.

"Talk to the hand" . . . enough said

Before the MySpace frenzy . . .

Before the Internet & text messaging . . .

Before iPods . . .

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX . . .

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When petrol was $0.65 a litre & Caller ID was a new thing.

When you had to be one lucky kid to get a mobile phone before you were 16.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off of our walkman.

You had slap bands!

Way back.....
When you could fly on Ansett to Melbourne and get the kangaroo creek gang
fun packs with your meal!!
When roller blading was more popular than skateboarding.
Sega mega drive was awesome as well as master system.


Korn and limp bizkit were hard core and when there was a good balance of
music genres between rap and rock.


When drinking red eye energy drinks were as legally close as you could
get to being pissed.

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90s so much!!!!!

Wow, I remember about 80% of all this stuff very fondly. But I was born in 1989. What does that make me? Can I really call myself a 90's kid? I don't know.
