90’s Kids- Here’s your throwback.
Slinky Spring Toy
Remember the time when you had to call your friends to show them your new tricks? Or when you placed this on top of the staircase and let it tumble until it hits the floor. The good days!
This one of the most popular 90’s toys was actually invented in 1943 by Naval Engineer, Richard James. It was when he was looking for ways to stabilize sensitive instruments on rough seas that this was discovered. Soon after, he demonstrated this as a toy in Gimbel’s Department store in Philadelphia where the first 400 units were sold in minutes!

Thanks to Akihiro Yokoi And Aki Maita Kids in the 90s were able to experience how it is to be a responsible owners to this virtual pet.
Released in 1997 in Japan, Tamagochi comes from the word ‘Tamago’’ which translates to egg in Japan. The ‘chi’ comes from the last few letters of the English word ‘Watch’.
The name ‘tamagotchi’ is just fitting to how this toy works. Once the toy is activated, an egg appears and the owner can start taking care of his pet. As to how it mirrors taking care of a real pet – this has meters which will determine if the pet is hungry, happy and behave.
But sadly, if not properly taken care of, this virtual pet can die too.
In 2017 – Bandai announced the toy’s comeback as the company launches 6 new versions of the classic playground version.
A Great throwback indeed!

Okay, 90s kids, can you still recall how many pogs you were able to collect as kids?
Well, some can still absolutely remember! For the 90s Kids, these were probably more valuable than money.
The name Pogs originated from POG, a brand name of Juice made out of Passion fruit, Orange and Guava. The bottle caps were commercialized and used later on for the game.
