The overwhelming obsession we had with literal rubber (Silly) bands Richard Lautens/Toronto Star via Getty Images Remember back in elementary/middle school when having the most Silly Bandz on your wrist made you the “cool kid”? Welp, that still hasn't changed. 2. The OG group chat Nintendo I would consider this the OG iMessage, Skype, Discord, etc. This is where the early grade school tea was spilled. 3. V-Tech gaming V-Tech The OG gaming console of the 2000s. Today, VTech's core businesses remains exclusively with cordless telephones and electronic learning products. 4. Mr. Sketch Scented Markers Newell Brands An image that I can still smell to this day. We talking Green apple, Blue Raspberry, Lemon, Orange, and even Coffee. Back in the day, you would have your assignments smelling good for that A in no time. 5. The gym scooters Getty Images I can still feel the pain rolling over my fingers. People could never get the balance for these. 6. Pencil grips Amazon We would always play with these in the classroom and then somehow lose them the next day. 7. The Wonder Pets Nickelodeon The feeling of waking up at 7 a.m. just to watch this show on the weekends on NOGGIN is unmatched. 8. Counting bears Learning Resources Math wasn't math class without these little bears. You were all set if you collected all four of them and held onto them for a week! 9. Math linking cubes Learning Resources These were hands-on use of cubes that can assist with understanding mathematical concepts. But they were especially helpful in creating play swords. 10. The dreaded multiplication test TSL Books Not gonna lie, after a time of pressure from your parents, you start to know these answers like it was second nature. 11. The infamous Heelys Heely's Having to take the wheels out at school was the biggest pain. But when it was out, you can ride them all over the parking lot. Too bad I had to take mine back, because I could never use them. 12. Blockbuster Justin Sullivan / Getty Images Kid's nowadays will never know the excitement of going to a Blockbuster store to rent a movie. Do people still do Redbox? 13. TruMoo (school milk) Dean Foods School lunch wasn't school lunch without the TruMoo chocolate milk. If you had strawberry or just regular milk itself, then you were a different breed. 14. Dragon Tales PBS No need for the intro, we just know this show is top tier against all the other shows. No show can top this one. Point. Blank. Period. 15. Stick-on earrings Amazon Sure, they were small and usually simple earrings that didn't hang past the ear lobe, but they could've been rocked for any occasion. Or be used just to flex, because why not? 16. Webkinz Ganz The pet toy that can come to life online? Yeah, my mind was blown too. 17. i-Dogs Hasbro I really thought this was the future. It only cost about $40 and in the long run, it was a good investment for just one of its cute dances alone. 18. Lip Smacker Bonne Bell 'Ight, if your "girlfriend" in school wore this for you, she was a keeper. HANDS DOWN!! 19. Doodle Bears Mattel I had my greatest art creations on this bear as a kid. All of us were a bunch of young Picassos. Too bad they were all washed away by the washing machine. 20. The last day of school shirts Big Machine Records Ahhh yes, the greatest day in school history. Breaking out these bad boys on the last day before any holiday break was the best because you can finally relax, eat food, watch movies, and talk to your friends without any repercussions. 21. Whatever these were called... Amazon Could never figure out this name for it, but I could never keep them in my hands. 22. And Littlest Pet Shop Digital Pets Hasbro I could not get this off my TV screen. Every five minutes on a commercial break, they would play this. The company must've made a killing on them! What's something from the 2000s that, no matter what year it is or how old you are, always makes you nostalgic? Let me know in the comments below!
