Here's a little something I saw in a video on youtube, I thought it was something that could work in a blog post aswell as a vlog. If you were a 90's kid like me hopefully you'll enjoy this little blast from the past...
Favourite tv show?
I loved a lot of tv shows when I was younger but I'd have to say my overall favourite was Pokémon. I remember being really sick once when I was a kid and rushing home from the hospital to see the newest episode of Pokémon, clearly I had my priorities straight! I also loved the Rugrats and show called mopatops shop, which to me was pure magical. Some other favourites were Barney, Animal's of farthing wood, Noah's Island, Tots tv, the Morbegs and postman pat!
This is so difficult! well I was a big barbie fan so I liked the little collection my sisters and I had going. I loved betty spaghetti dolls and my diva starz doll which I begged my parents for. Oh and my sisters furby although that was kinda creepy thinking back. I also loved my play kitchen. Anything kept me amused as a kiddo.
Favourite tv commercial?
♪Them bones them bones need calcium ♫ couldn't actually find the version I used to watch on youtube. Another one I liked was the one for those BN biscuits with the faces ♪BN BN doo doo di doo doo♫ anything with a catchy song really had me sold really.
Nsync or backstreet boys?Is it bad to say neither? I don't ever recall being a fan of either of these boy bands. I think I'd be more familiar with backstreet boys if I had to choose one. I remember loving Westlife though. If you don't recognize the name it might be because they were a lot bigger Europe.
Weirdest fashion trend?
Jelly shoes, choker necklaces, scrunchies, butterfly hair clips and bubble bags, part of me still wishes bubble bags were still cool.
Pokemon cards! I remember me and my brothers and sisters would nag my mam in the morning while she was driving us to school to buy us pokemon cards. My older sister and I would always split a pack and she'd give me all the crap ones thinking I wouldn't notice :P
Favourite beany baby?
Chocolate the moose! I recently learnt that if it was kept in pristine condition it would be worth $600 for collectors, although I'm not sure how true that is. I kinda hope it's not haha. I liked that beany babies had names and birthdays, I'd always try and celebrate them and always forget. I also never saw the point in keeping the tag on them, although I do now!
How many tamagotchi's did you go through?
Well because I grew up in a big family and all us children were very close in age, when it came to toys there was never really any great sense of ownership so I could guess I went through about 3 but I'm not even sure they would have been mine. They were such a money scam, they'd alway die!
Favourite gaming system and game?
I was a playstation kid through and through. I loved the second crash bandicoot game (cortex strikes back!) and the best game ever crash team racing, which we downloaded a few years ago and I still play on our ps3 ( I know!). I also really liked spiro the dragon and a game called medieval. My brothers loved final fantasy but I was never any good at it.
Favourite Disney channel show or original movie?
I only got Disney channel when I was about 8 so I'm not sure if they're considered 90's but I loved Lizzie McGuire and that's so Raven, I think I'd still watch that's so Raven if it was on. She was so sassy.
Favourite music artist?
Britney spears. Thought she was the bees knees. I have better music taste now, I swear!
Favourite Nickelodeon show?
Keenan and Kel. I PUT THE SCREW IN THE TUNA!
Favourite candy (sweets)?
I really liked the hubba bubba with the strawberry liquid stuff inside I don't think they sell them anymore :( I liked jelly tots, flying saucers with the sherbet, push pops! penny sweets back when they were actually cheap, and starburst. Anything really, I wasn't too fussy when it came to sweets. That said I did not really like gobstoppers, they were just painful and unhygienic haha
Favourite game? (board game, school game, etc.)
I went to an all girls primary school so we had a lot of games involving skipping ropes which I loved. I also loved a school game we had called 'My grandfathers shop' it was guessing game and you'd have to run up and down til you guessed what was in the shop. As for board games I liked the usual games like guess who, connect four and one named shopping list that I loved when I was about 5 or 6.
Favourite McDonald's Happy Meal toy?
My sister and I still talk about the time we got Lumiere, the candlestick from beauty and the beast. When you pressed a button at the bottom he lit up which I found amazing at the time! I also liked the Mr. Men toys they had at some point, I remember wanting them all.
Don't put mustard in the custard! I still think it's genius. Owl Babies. Anything by roald dahl. Oh and a the four seasons of bramley hedge!!
Favourite clothing store?
I didn't really have one at that age, my mam would buy all my clothes which usually came from Dunnes stores or Marks and spencers, I remember wearing Benetton clothes a lot too.
What would you watch when you'd get home from school?
Most likely the Rugrats, Pokemon or anything on cartoon network, Dexter's lab anyone?! :D
WOW. I'm feeling incredibly nostalgic now. I had so much fun writing this and remembering all the things I loved as a kid.
