    Time to time, I miss the 1990's. As a kid growing up I enjoyed watching shows like Home Improvement.:D Unfortunately, they don't make shows these days like they used to. Well, there is a place called youtube if I ever want to watch old shows from the 1990's.:D

    I think it's adorable that you consider the 1990s "the good old days". :p

    :D I almost forgot, it's not just the tv shows. I also reminisce the games and toys I used to play with, like the following for example :D

    Since I grew up in the days of hula hoops, slinkies, and Etch-a-Sketch, I don't even know what those are, in that picture.

    The picture I posted are "pogs," a game that was really popular back in the 90's.

    Rules may vary among players, but the game variants generally have common gameplay features. Each player has their own collection of Pogs and a slammer (a heavier game piece). Before the game, players decide whether to play 'for keeps', or not. 'For keeps' implies that the players keep the POGs that they win and forfeit those that have been won by other players. The game can then begin as follows:

    1) The players each contribute an equal number of pogs to build a stack with the pieces facing down, which will be used during the game.
    2) The players take turns throwing their slammer down onto the top of the stack, causing it to spring up and the pogs to scatter. Each player keeps any pogs that land 'face up' after their throw.
    3) After each throw, the pogs which have landed 'face down' are then re-stacked for the next player.
    4) When no pogs remain in the stack, the player with the most pogs is the 'winner'.

    OK. So it's just an updated version of tiddlywinks.

    Oh yeah. I forgot about these little critters.:D

    Tamagotchi: a handheld digital pet. Just like a real pet, owner has to discipline it, feed it, clean up their bathroom mess, give medicine when it's sick, and play with it.

    Pogs? Digital Pets? Dude, you are now offically the biggest dork on this board.

    When it comes to TV shows, for a while there NBC had it all. Cosby Show, Cheers, Seinfeld, Friends, Frasier. I still watch Cheers when I can(WGN only station that I see carrying it). But I grew up in the 70's and those days were better by far. Toys back then were created to get and keep you outside. Big Wheels(as a real little kid), Frisbee, Nerf, Whiffle Ball, Tonka...all toys meant to be played with outside. Not to mention that we used to play street football, sandlot baseball, street hockey, kick the can, etc. We spent literally all day outside. Especially on Saturdays. Once the cartoons were over, it was outside until dark.
