The little dolls that made heart and star paper cut outs, and the flying fairies were all my favorite! Oh and My Girl made me cry each time to! Hehe thanks for bringing back old memories!

    Oh my goodness, this really brought me back. I am a little older than you, but I had most of those things too! NKOTB was definitely my favorite group. I also loved Whitney Houston, Debbie Gibson, and Paula Abdul. I’m so glad you included the show dinosaurs, my husband never saw it and doesn’t believe it existed! 🙂

    I was IN love with JTT. I saw a recent picture of him on TMZ the other day and he looks the exact same! Me and my best friend would watch My Girl all the time…and we cried every time too. I think I would still cry if I watched it today. Thanks for the flashbacks!

    Soooo funny. We LOVED outfits like those MC Hammer pants – Kelly Kapowski wore all those kinds of crazy hairdos and colours on Saved by the Bell and we idolized her! (I was born in 85 so just a year younger!). And those electronic pets! Haha.

    BUT does anyone remember Pogs?? Slammer and playing Pogs at lunchtime…no? OMG they were so huge in Cayman (I’m from the Cayman Islands) but I don’t know if they were in the States. So funny!

    I know this is SUPER old, but I ran across this post while looking at other oldy-but-goody toys. I’m the same age as you so I hope you remember these… Cupcake dolls! I was obsessed with smelling the rubber skirt/cupcake. I tried to convince my mom and friends it was vanilla scented! 🙂
