It was almost like having a real pet.

If you're feeling nostalgic for Furby, you're in luck! The little guy's back. He's new and improved, and he has a mind of his own.

4. Super Soakers

If your summers weren't filled with crazy water gun fights, then I'm sorry! Even Johnny Depp thought they were cool.

If you didn't have one, you at least had the jingle stuck in your head.

6. Virtual Pets

Be it a GigaPet, NanoBaby, or Tamagotchi, your teachers in school confiscated them all during the school day. How are you supposed to clean its poop when it's sitting in their desks?

7. Pogs

Literally everyone collected pogs in the '90s. (And yet most people had no idea how to actually play with them.)

Talkboy was originally just a prop in Home Alone 2, but kids loved it so much, they made it into the real deal.

Skip-It was originally made in the '80s, but they didn't get popular until their '90s revival. They were the hit of the playground!

In an age before Mp3 players, HitClips were the hottest way to play portable music. They didn't even play entire songs, but we still loved them anyway.
