1. A Tamagotchi
If you didn’t have a handheld robotic pet in your life, how were you ever going to convince your parents that you were responsible enough to take care of a real animal?
2. A calculator watch
It’s a watch AND a calculator. And you had to have it because you never knew when you’d need to figure out a complicated equation on your wrist.
3. A tape-to-MP3 converter
Finally! A device to transfer all those tapes and CDs you had lying around to your MP3 player. How much did you miss listening to that one Vitamin C song?
4. A PDA
It was like coming out of the dark ages and into the Jetsons era when you got your hands on a PDA. REVOLUTIONARY.
5. A VCR/DVD combo
The ultimate transitioning tool that could do twice the work. You were stuck with half of your movies on VHS and were slowly changing over to DVDs; you needed this puppy in your life.
7. A digital camera of your very own
Knowing you’d be able to take a million MySpace bathroom selfies, without worrying your film would run out, felt like having a magical lamp filled with endless wishes.
8. A universal remote
Sick of having 30 remotes strewn across the living room? This was the solution that merged everything together into one jumbo package.
9. A video game console
You never forget your first love.
