FAVOURITE TV SHOWS
This is so hard. Because I had loads of favourites! But here’s a few!
MOVE IT FOOTBALL HEAD! Haha. Hey Arnold was one of the classics. I love how she hated him but secretly weirdly loved him and had a Arnold Shrine room. CREEEEPPPY!!!
Is it still sad that I know the tune that Tommy played on his Dragon Dagger’s flute to call forth his mighty zord?! Wait let me just copy and paste this video. I’m actually crying with laughter. Their zords seemed so big and real…they just look like toys and someone’s playing with them to make them move.
Come on say the Morphin Time Sequence with me….I know that you still know it!
I loved Recess, Arthur, Rugrats, Pokemon, Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girl, Fresh Prince of Bell Air, Sister Sister, Saved By the Bell, X-men, Hulk, Sabrina the Teenage Witch (loved salem the cat), The Moomins, Barbar, Art Attack, The Demon Headmaster (freaked me out when he said “look into my eyes”!), Are you Afraid of the dark, The Queen’s nose (where your 50p at?), Bernards Watch (I used to imagine me having the watch), Kissyfur, Goosebumps and so many more! Is it sad that I still know most of the character names?
FAVOURITE TV COMMERCIAL
Um Bongo how I miss you so. You made me get in touch with my animal side and I felt like I was back home in the jungle.
HOW MANY TAMAGOTCHI’S DID YOU GO THROUGH?
I mean forget about real life pets, lets just focus solely on feeding our virtual pets and cleaning their poop. I think some therapy session was seriously needed when my pets died. It was traumatising. I had a blue tamagotchi and he was such a loving dog, God Rest His Soul. My brother had a pale blue one…I think he had a dinosaur.
FAVOURITE GAME CONSOLE
OK so on Gameboy it must have been Tetris. But me and my brother first got Nintendo and we played Super Mario Brothers so many times! SO FREAKIN AWESOME!
Whoever thought of creating Pokemon Cards was obviously a genius. I think I gave mine away when I was 16. I had loads! I wanted to catch them all!! Pogs! I had all the looney tunes and I think they used to sell them in crisp packets too! Man good times.
The alien in the goo in the egg. It’s so funny we thought they were actually alive and they grew. I remember as if it was yesterday, it was in the evening in our garden and my brother being stupid chucked my alien in the air and held his hands to catch it. We waited. And Waited. The alien never came down again.
As kids we took our Yo-yo Battles down to the playground. Kid’s had different moves and techniques and some even had the yo-yo’s that lighted up. Totally Gangsta.
Remember this? My dad got me one of these and I was like wow an electronic calender, diary, calculator, dictionary. It can’t get better than this.
FAVOURITE DISNEY MOVIES
My dad used to buy me all the Disney movies on video (of course). It has to be Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Beauty & the Beast. We watched Mary Poppins a lot as a family so that’s got to be my favourite too.
FAVOURITE MUSIC ARTISTS
Backstreet boys, Steps, S Club 7, Five, Spice Girls. I remember in primary school me and two friends wanted to share a song “Every night in my dreams” in front of our class in Year 5 maybe? Hilarious, thinking about it now. I just wanted to be a pop star. I remember we practised so many times during play time. For our Year 6 leaving play we performed “Tragedy” by Steps and totally did all all the moves. It was the coolest moment ever.
My friend bought me Polly Pocket and roller skating Barbie for my birthday. It was the best moment of my life. I brushed and washed Barbies hair more than my own. I loved furby and my spring toy that I would find amusing playing with it down the stairs-again and again.
I used to love when my parents bought me Kinder Surprise! I just wanted the toy inside, I didn’t care too much for the chocolate. Sherbets were a huge thing ages ago too. They were 2p and the yummiest sugar candy ever. Here are some other sweets that you might remember:
