I saw this 90’s themed tag on A Geeky Gal’s blog the other day and I immediately wanted to write in my answers. I was born in July 1994 so I’m very much a 90’s baby. Anyone who wants to participate in the 90’s tag absolutely can! Here are my answers:
Favorite TV Show
My immediate first thought in my head was Rugrats. This is the show my mom even started to watch and adored. I remember all the Rugrats movies including the one in Paris with a huge Reptar dinosaur. I also remember watching the episode where bugs crawl into Tommy’s grandfather’s mouth while he sleeps; I was disgusted.
Favorite 90’s Song
Bye Bye Bye – NSYNC.
NSYNC or Backstreet Boys
Should be obvious because of my answer above, but NSYNC!
Favorite Music Artist
Britney Spears reminds me a lot of the 90’s. I was feeling for her in 2007 when she was unraveling, but now she has picked up the pieces and has made a successful career since.
Did you Collect Anything?
McDonalds Happy Meal Toys. We would go to McDonalds probably once or twice a week and we would collect the toys in the set. My dad would drive us to all of these different McDonalds looking for the toys. My mom has the whole set of the Toy Story Happy Meal Toys in a shelf in our basement. I don’t go to McDonalds at all anymore, but if I’m on a road trip I will get a kids meal just for the toy.
Favorite Breakfast Cereal
I love Breakfast cereal. I have to stop buying it as an adult because if I come home from work after a long day, I would pour myself a bowl of cereal instead of making dinner. I think my favorite cereal was Mini Swirlz Cinnamon Bun cereal. It was delicious.
Favorite Cereal Toy
Remember when cereal boxes would give out great prizes. In General Mills cereal you could get Carmen Sandiego CD games. How cool is that? Getting a new video game to play. I still have the games and they work on my older laptop, but I think they are too old now and probably won’t work if that laptop dies.
90’s Crush Growing Up
Honestly, I can’t think of anyone I had a huge crush on in the 90’s. I’m sure I had one, I just can’t recall who that is. My first crush ever was Sean Connery from the James Bond movies, but that’s not in the 90’s.
Favorite Disney Channel Movie
I didn’t watch Disney Channel movies in the 90’s.
Favorite Cartoon Show
I really liked Digimon, Rugrats, Blues Clues, Ozzie & Drix and more.
Weirdest Fashion Trend?
I always think of those slap bracelets. The ones where you hit yourself on the wrist really hard and the band wraps around your wrist. You would grab some and smack your friend with it on the playground; good times.
I’m going to list a couple of great toys in my closet growing up regardless if they came out in the 90’s or not.
- Easy Bake Oven
- Disneyland Play Set < I still have this because of how many memories were attached to it.
- Build a Bear
- My Little Ponies
There were probably more toys I loved, but these were my favorites.
Disney, Nicklodeon or Cartoon Network?
- Cartoon Network
What Early Morning Cartoon Would you Watch?
SO MANY. I used to wake up in the summers early and before my dad would take us to this day care place we used to go to, I would watch Scooby Doo. I also would watch Woody the Woodpecker, Digimon and more.
Favorite McDonald’s Happy Meal Toy?
I had this black puppy I got as a Happy Meal Toy that was my favorite thing to carry around growing up. It used to be this running joke with my mom and dad where if my mom didn’t know where Black Puppy was, she knew I wouldn’t go to sleep that night. She always had to make sure she knew where Black Puppy was so I would go to sleep.
Favorite Book Growing Up?
Harry Potter series of course. I also read Franklin the Turtle, Junie B. Jones, Magic Tree House, the young Nancy Drew book series and more.
The 90’s and even the early 2000’s was a fun time. I wouldn’t relieve the years 2005 – 2009 again, but I would for sure go back to the 90’s. This was fun relieving some of my early childhood memories. If you decide to do the 90’s tag, leave a comment below with your tag URL. I would love to read it.
