13 things only a 90’s kid can relate to

If you are a 90’s kid, we welcome you to this short trip down the memory lane. Reclaiming that our childhood was indeed the best of all and nothing can replace that!

 

SNAKE XENIA

With nokia being the most widely used cell phone, the snake game was the most popular  game played in it! How many of you remember making high scores?

THE ULTIMATE VIDEO GAME

All 90’s kids must be able to recall this video game, it used to  come with multiple games of falling blocks that we used to love!

THE RING SMASHER

The ring smasher was perhaps the coolest game ever, pressing those buttons like crazy and when you finally had all the rings in the hoop, your sibling would quarrel for their turn resulting in unlooped rings!

THE SIM SIM/PING PONG BALLS

These colorful, rubbery and extra bouncy balls were the ultimate dream of all kids. However, I still haven’t figured out why it got the name sim sim ball.

 THE PATACKHE WALI GUN!

How many of you remember the patakhe wali gun? It’s one of the nastiest memory of all!

THE FISHING GAME

I remember the box saying it was a family game, but I never remember my family sitting up in a circle to play it properly! The best part was filling up the bath tub and fishing there!!

THE TAPE GUM!

The tape gum has to be the most miseristic memory ever! Always eating up a small bite to save it for latter and never sharing it with anyone because other’s tape gum was male muft dil e bereham!

THE BUTTERFLY CATCHERS!

No matter how many u buy, these catchers always disappeared. Maybe the boggie man came for them!

 THE MOUSE BALL

This is the part where we all felt like huge technicians! Cursor not moving ? Invert the mouse, uncover the back, take out the tracker ball, a few blows into the empty space and put it back in, VOILA!

I won’t lie, I used to take it out for no reason to play with!

THE BUNTY GOGGLES

Nothing, not even real shades were once as cool as the bunty glasses!

THE ULTIMATE SURVIVAL ART KIT

This art kit was every child’s dream, I remember working hard in exams because my parents promised to buy me a new one every year!

THE SLAP WRIST BAND

Don’t you remember this cool wrist band that we used to straighten out and slap on our wrists and it would cling perfectly according to our size!

THE GREATEST EVENING SNACKS

I miss that time when chips and all junk was well affordable under Rs 10, our daily allowance. Can’t forget how desperately I used to wait for the thailey wale uncle to show up every evening and run upto him for the daily quota!
