It’s easy to wax nostalgic about the the '90s, but some things about that decade were pretty wack. Just check out the goods that were for sale in the toy aisle. There are loads of toys every '90s kid should force their kids to play with, because few things are funnier than watching an iPad baby react to an old Game Boy. Back in the ‘90s, kids had to walk uphill in the snow to get enough batteries for five minutes of play time.
There are three great reasons to bust out the old ‘90s toys from your parents’ house. First, it will give your kids a sense of how much things have changed in the past decades, especially as far as technology is concerned. An original Tamagotchi will probably seem like an ancient artifact to kids who grew up on apps. Next, sharing old playthings is a sweet way to bond with your kid. If you child gets attached to your favorite Beanie Baby from yesteryear, you will have still more things in common. Lastly, it’s good for your own amusement as a parent. Hand your kid a container of Pogs and see if he can guess their purpose. Chances are, most of these old-school playthings will leave your kids totally baffled.
