When I moved back in with my parents during the pandemic, one of the many things I did during quarantine was roam around their house and collect ancient artifacts from my childhood — and boy, did I come across some millennial gems.
Here are some that brought me all kinds of nostalgia, and maybe they'll do the same for you, too!
