21 Toys You Had If You Were A True '90s Girl

You know you asked Santa for ALL of them.

1. Polly Pockets

From the big ones with the the castles to the little Pollies living in rings. The downside was always losing those little pieces, because once they were gone, they were IMPOSSIBLE to find.

2. Skydancers

How could you forget these little fairies? You'd put them on a base and send them spinning into the air by pulling a string. They could also be weaponized by aiming them at your little brother.

4. Furbies

You must have asked Santa for one when they came out. Flash forward a couple of months: you put your Furby away because its voice and its huge, devilish eyes would keep you from getting to sleep each night.


8. And that Barbie head you could style and put make-up on

It was just a huge bust whose hair you could braid, tie in pony-tails or do whatever you wanted with. Depending on how old you were when you had her, she might have even ended up totally bald.


10. The Tamagotchi

Having one of these back then was like having the latest iPhone now. In hindsight, it taught us a lot about responsibility and what happens when you don't feed your pet (or clean up its poop). Our parents tricked us.


16. Glitter Tubes

Sometimes you could blow bubbles from them, sometimes you couldn't. It was always a toss-up, and you never knew which kind you had until you got it. But they were always sold outside concerts and events.


20. Cabbage Patch Kids

You were either a Cabbage Patch girl or you were into...

21. My Little Baby Born
