4. Having a massive Pog collection that you were incredibly proud of.


8. Watching Maid Marian on CBBC – it was honestly one of the best TV shows of all time.


You had a weird crush on that soppy guy with long hair that you would never admit to.

Here, enjoy some intense flashbacks...

10. Having neon pink sweat patches on your Global Hypercolour top – but still being the envy of all your friends.


13. Glugging Sunny Delight and waiting for your skin to turn yellow.

15. Singing along to Salt 'n' Pepa, and feeling naughty.

"Let's talk about sex, baby / let's talk about you and me / let's talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be / let's talk abaaaaaout sex."


17. Wearing a floppy hat.


27. Wanting Buffalo boots just like the Spice Girls.

You had no idea how you'd walk in them, and you couldn't afford a pair anyway, but you still lusted after them.

29. Saving up for a teen magazine so you could learn about sex and periods.

31. The sound of connecting to the internet via a dial-up modem on your family's desktop computer.

All those whirrs and bleeps, and no guarantee it would actually connect. But if you did get online, you headed straight into a chat room to talk to strangers and probable sex predators.

32. Being petrified of Mr Blobby.


You were scared that one day you'd be surprised on an episode of Noel's House Party, and Mr Blobby would grab you, shouting "Blobby wobby wobby."

33. Playing Minesweeper or Solitaire on your computer when you were bored.

34. Chilling out on a piece of disappointing inflatable furniture like this.

Expectations of inflatable furniture = a rigid bouncy castle for your bum. Reality = a sad, wrinkled, floppy breath sack.

35. Spending hours carefully colouring in your Velvet Art.

And then giving the finished products to your parents as a present. They never framed them, because they didn't live in a 1970s caravan.

39. Being emotionally scarred for life by The Animals of Farthing Wood.


It made Watership Down look tame in comparison. Please let's not talk about the hedgehogs either. Thx.

44. Spending all your pocket money on Boglins.

46. The incomparable feeling of elation when you completed Super Mario on your Game Boy (which took approximately six solid hours of playing).

And the heartbreaking feeling of desolation when you got defeated on the last level – there was no option to save, so you just had to start again.
