Classic 90s Toys
1. Furby (1998): Ferbies were programmed to learn especially English. The Ferbies get more and more advanced with time. These are cute little guys. There have been many improvements made to the Furby over the years such as a larger sized Furby with a vast English vocabulary and they come in several different colors. I remember Wal-Mart in Birmingham, Alabama having two fights over Furby's during the Black Friday sales day.
2. Tickle Me Elmo (1996): Tickle Me Elmo, that cute little laugh. After the one hundred thousandth time you hear it laugh when you tickle it, it shakes uncontrollably. The Tickle Me Elmo doll only came in red He makes a slight giggle when you poke him in the ribs. This toy was one of the most popular toys for years around Christmas time. The entire United States went wild with Elmo fever when these characters came out on the market. Original dolls still in the box are worth a pretty penny. Something to think about.
3. Beanie Baby (1993): Beanie Babies always felt good no matter what it was that was located inside. As people began to collect Beanie Babies, the company started to come out with many different characters. Many people hung nets in the corner of the bedroom to hold all of the entire collection of the Beanie Babies. Some of the original ones are worth quite a bit of money and they all have different names or identities if you will.
4. PlayStation (1994): The PS 1, had 32 bits graphics and it was Sony's first entry into the video game market. The PlayStation was highly successful and they have had three more gaming systems come out since the first one. It is CD-ROM based and the controllers had long cords. The console released over a thousand video games before upgrading again. This system made other companies have to work twice as hard in order to compete in the video game market. Sony, in general, stays the number one selling console with Xbox usually coming in at a close number 2.
5. Pokémon (1996): These trading cards were very popular among pre-teen children. Beside playing cards, Pokémon had a cartoon and several video games based on the characters from Pokémon. Some of the cards are collector cards and some of them are holographic. Clothing such as shirts, hats and pajama's were also a hit with the kids. A few of these cards are actually worth a few thousands bucks!
6. Power Rangers (1993): The power rangers had a cartoon, several feature films and action figures on the market. There were four Power Rangers and they each had their own specific gifts/powers. Power Rangers also pilot machines called zords. The action figures moved and twisted easily especially the arms and legs which turned every which way but loose.
7. Game Boy (1986): The Game Boy was a hand held video gaming system that played different cartridges. This game was cool because you could take it wherever you went. No more being restricted by cords. The Game Boy came out with almost 500 games before it was discontinued for an upgrade. The only negative about this device was instead of color or black and white the color was a greenish tint. Having said that, Gameboys always run the show when it comes to handheld gaming.
8. Roller Blades (1991): These inline skates had four wheels. Most inline skates have brakes on the heels of the skates. Growing up it was fun to watch people on inline skates but for me it was hard to learn and I kept falling. If you do partake in this activity wear a helmet and knee pads. Roller blades are great fun whether you are watching someone on some skates or if you are the skater.
9. Skip-It (1990): A small plastic band is place around the leg you will be jumping on. Attached to the band is a plastic ball that you jump over as it swings around. It's a fun game to play solo or with a partner. It's a cheap priced toy and ine that can entertain children for hours on end.
10. Sega Genesis (1990): This 16 bit gaming console was the main competition for Nintendo. The Sega Genesis had superior graphics over the other systems and it was the first to successfully come out with a CD platform. The console came packed with two controllers and a game called Altered Beast when it was released originally.
