It's time for another tag post, this time, courtesy of the beautiful Jess from Cake Crumbs and Pages. I may have been born in 1990 and, therefore, a young child during the decade, but it was a great time to grow up. The 90s produced many amazing...everything! Things to watch, games to play, food to eat and clothes to wear. I hope you enjoy this tag and because I am not 100% sure how old you all are I've just tagged the odd person at the end, though obviously I tag anyone that wants to do it.
1. Favourite Disney Film?
Stop it. Seriously. I'll choose one live action and one animated if I really must but it's not 100% set in stone. Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey and The Lion King.
2. Favourite Music Artist?
3. Favourite Sweets?
Is it strange that for someone so into sweets, I can't think of any particularly 90s sweets?!
4. Favourite Game? (Board game / school game)
Board game wise I've only ever played Payday and Monopoly, I think. So probably either of them. School game? Dang it this is hard because I can barely remember last year let alone school. I think we liked to do those cats cradle things and hand games/songs. I'm sure you know what I mean!
5. Favourite McDonalds 'Happy Meal' Toy?
Not to sound like a brag, but my parents cooked me food ;) haha
6. Favourite Book?
Urm..Harry Potter obviously. But for early the 90s, I'd better say the Puppy Patrol books by Jenny Dale. I had the full set and it's one of the earliest series of books I can remember reading by myself apart from the ever famous Chip and Kipper ones. I remember in one class something being asked about books or something and my teacher thought I'd said 'Jelly Deel'...not Jenny Dale. A random memory but one of very few that I have of being a kid haha.
7. Favourite Clothing Store?
I guess Tammy? I had huge wide leg 'skate' trousers with chains and stuff from there.
8. Favourite TV Show?
Too many! I'm not gonna mention the ones you already know of and Nickelodeon or Disney channel shows but on normal tv after school I remember liking Art Attack, How2, Arthur, ZZZap!. Earlier 90s I liked Barney, Bananas in Pajamas, Bear in the Big Blue House, The Animals of Farthing Wood, Come Outside. There is no way to pick a fave and there are so many more. 90s TV was the best child's tv ever and today's shows haven't got a patch on them.
9. What Show Would You Watch After School?
Oops, I mentioned those above haha. Usually, it was whatever was on Nickelodeon though.
10. What Was Your Favourite 90s Game Show?
I've never been a big game show fan.
11. Did You Own A Virtual Pet? (Cyberpet, Tamagotchi etc)
I had a Teddy Ruxpin, Tamagotchi, Poochie and Furby.
12. Favourite Video Game and System To Play On?
Game Boy colour. It's the only one I really had. We had an Atari but didn't use it much and never cared for PlayStation. (We have Xboxes now)
13. Weirdest Fashion Trend?
Well, of course, looking back on it, everything seemed weird! I'm sure at the time we thought it all perfectly normal. Something I never had (thankfully) but never understood and wasn't a fan of was 'poppers'. Do you know what I mean? Those jogging pants that had press studs right up the legs...urgh! haha
14. Favourite Toy?
I've actually got a blog post on my Top 5 90s Childrens Toys, so you can check that out, but I've always been a lover of soft toys/teddies and I think other than that my main love as a kid were Puppy in my Pockets.
15. Favourite Nickelodeon Show?
Yet again, it's not one I can limit down to one haha. Clarissa Explains it All, The Amanda Show, Kenan and Kel, Doug, Hey Arnold. I would have listed Sabrina the Teenage Witch first, but technically it was an ABC show :P
Kerri of Life as Unusuals
Lily of Tiny Grey Cat
And any other cool dudes.
