12 Things From Our Past That Deserve A Second Chance

Hindsight is 20/20. We may have grown up and moved on, but some things from our past deserve a second chance, like the browser you loved to hate.

1. Tear Away Pants

Why they deserve a second chance: What these lacked in fashion, they more than made up for in convenience. Also, you can just do some cool things with them.

2. Gel Pens

Why they deserve a second chance: There was no better way to convey a message than multi-colored smoothness on a folded up note in class. Definitely cooler than texting.

3. Goosebumps

Why it deserves a second chance: Have you seen the kinds of horror movies kids are watching these days?! No thanks. Just give me a Goosebumps book and keep your slasher flicks.

4. Pokémon

Why they deserve a second chance: Even though we’ve moved on to more sophisticated games like “Magic: The Gathering,” nothing can really match up to how awesome these little guys were.

5. Scrunchies

Why they deserve a second chance: They’re playful, they’re colorful, and you can use them to complement your outfit. Why they went out of style is still a mystery.

6. Chokers

Why they deserve a second chance: They looked cool then, they’ll look cool now. Besides, going retro is generally a good move.

7. Arcades

Why they deserve a second chance: Sure, you can do all this stuff on computers, but there is just something to be said about going to a place with some quarters and a vengeance to wreak upon aliens.

8. PEZ

Why it deserves a second chance: It’s time for us to just get over ourselves and revert back to an assembly-line method of consuming sugary treats.

9. Tamagotchi

Why it deserves a second chance: Whenever you get lonely and no one is responding to your texts, you can always count on this little guy to be there.

10. Cassette Tapes

Why they deserve a second chance: Cassettes look cool. MP3 files don’t look like anything.

11. BN Biscuits

Why they deserve a second chance: Sure, there are tons of other tasty snacks to munch on, but how can you refuse this happy smiling delicacy?

12. Marbles

Why they deserve a second chance: Playing “marbles” is a great way to resolve minor conflict. Hey, it worked on the playground, didn’t it?
