6. …curtains…

9. Sleepover at your BFF’s? Don’t forget your NKOTB sleeping bag.

Extra points if you used this to camp out at the Today show reunion in 2008.

10. And the NKOTB board game.

The best part? Setting up those way-cool cardboard picture frames.

11. Only total superfans snagged the NKOTB telephone.

12. You sent fan mail ALL THE TIME.

ID: 1041801

13. You wrote so much that you even got a response (luckily it wasn’t a restraining order).

ID: 1041803

14. You HATED Tiffany because she was dating Jonathan Knight. Step aside, Tiffany. Just step aside!

He later confirmed he is gay, but you would still totally marry him.

ID: 1043275

15. You called the Official NKOTB Hotline, 1-900-909-5KIDS — hanging on to a glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, a real, live New Kid would be on the other end — much to your parents’ phone bill’s dismay.

ID: 1041771

16. Bubbilicious? Pshaw. No time for that when you could be CHEWING NKOTB BUBBLE GUM.

And saving all the faux-cassette packaging because it would definitely be “worth something” one day. Or you just wanted to stare into Joey’s ocean-blue eyes forever and ever.

17. You brought a New Kids towel to the beach.

ID: 1041843

18. And packed your stuff in an NKOTB backpack/duffel bag.

ID: 1041844

19. You spent your weekends watching their VHS tapes and special concerts taped off of Pay-per-view over & over.

ID: 1041879

20. And you caught every episode of their short-lived cartoon series on ABC’s Saturday morning cartoons.

21. You taped this Coke comercial.

ID: 1041784

22. You busted this baby out to dance around the house to every Christmas:

OK, let’s be honest: You listened to this album even when it wasn’t Christmas.

ID: 1041539

23. You know the group was originally named — ew! — Nynuk (an unknown planet? a funky disease?) and initially included Mark Wahlberg and some other dude named Jamie Kelly.

ID: 1041858

24. You totally bought their first album (which initially had terrible sales), featuring the New Kids as sort-of-creepily fresh-faced babies, only after you listened to Hangin’ Tough three or four years later.

ID: 1041862

25. Admit it, you bought this album as well.

Lookin’ good, guys.

ID: 1041909

26. On your way to school? Bring the New Kids along to class with notebooks…

27. …a lunch box…

ID: 1041872

28. …a stylin’ tee…

(Perfect to pair with your Guess acid-washed jeans.)

ID: 1043572

29. …some sweet jewelry…

ID: 1041923

30. …and buttons to accessorize your outfit.

ID: 1043221

32. You drank from this McDonald’s “collector’s” cup until the paint started to peel off and your mom tossed it out behind your back. It was a COLLECTOR’S item.

ID: 1043529

33. You owned every one of the dolls.

Also, you might have been a little too old to still be playing with dolls.

ID: 1041870

34. Of course you needed the stage to pose them on.

ID: 1041868

35. You read every authorized and non-authorized biography, magazine special, and mag with their picture on the cover…

ID: 1041887

36. …and comic book.

ID: 1041891

37. You collected NKOTB trading cards…

ID: 1041897

38. …and stickers.

ID: 1043433

39. You cried from happiness when you heard Jordan Knight had a hit solo single with “Give It to You”…

ID: 1043496
