Oh the ‘90s. A time when all you had to worry about was whether your hair mascara was looking fly, if the Spice Girls would still be number one on a Sunday and which Dream Phone stud was admiring you from afar.

Yep, that clunky pink cordless was the controller of your destiny. You’d spend the whole game praying for your crush to be Matt, only to find out that he doesn’t like pizza. FAIL.

One thing’s for sure, they don’t make games like these '90s gems anymore...

1. Polly Pocket

You spent way more time looking for Polly Pocket than actually playing with her, but her heart-shaped house was the dream.

And the perfect hiding place for the TV remote when your brother was being annoying.

2. Baby Born

Quite gross when you think about it, Baby Born ate food and then pooped it out again like a real baby.  

But, even the creepy jingle didn't put us off owning one.

3. Craft Kits

Crystals, jewellery, candles, badges – no '90s sleepover  was complete without your Groovy Chick pillow, a PG movie and a make from one of these craft kits.

4. Hair-Styling Doll

There was only one way to master that new hairstyle from Just Seventeen – your hair-styling doll.

Crimping, pig tails, spikes held in place with gel, butterfly clips and a ponytail with two strands left down at the front – this poor lady was subjected to them all.

5. Furby

This fluffy guy talked, moved and did tricks. No wonder he was the ultimate Christmas present in 1998.

Except, you had to settle with playing with your friend's Furby because your mum and dad refused to shell out £60.

6. Tamagotchi

Before the Nokia 3310 made an appearance, you didn't go anywhere without your pink Tamagotchi.

Sadly, no matter how much you fed your little electronic pet under the table during double maths, he was always hungry/unhappy/dead by home time.

7. Skip-It

The skipping rope of the future – Skip-It  had a counter that kept track of your skips. Yep, it was THAT high-tech.

Your non Skip-It owning friend could even jump over the ball while you skipped if you were feeling really generous.

8. Pogs

Got, got, need...these circular pieces of cardboard (and your all-important slammer) were playground currency for any '90s teen.

There was always one cool kid who had an unrivalled Pog collection and would never play for 'keeps'.
