26 Things All '90s Kids CollectedGet the Full StoryWhere have all our trolls gone?
Puppy In My Pocket
They each had distinct personalities, and you loved them like they were real dogs.
Was there a game you were meant to play with Pogs? Mainly, you just collected like 500 of them and occasionally scattered them across the floor to show your friends.
Furries were the best, then shinies – but anything you could scratch and sniff was incredible.
Brilliant things, you'd still collect these now tbh.
You kept all the tags on even though it made them scratchy to hold, because one day you knew you they would make you rich.
You'd always check inside phone boxes incase someone had left one on the ground. It was a pretty unhygienic hobby now you come to think of it.
They came inside bags of Walkers crisps and were kind of like Pogs, but with Looney Toons characters and little slits around the edge for some reason.
Garbage Pail Kids
Gloriously gross and fucked up.
Again, you were meant to play a game with these but most people just collected them for the love of collecting things.
They came in plastic packets, so you didn't know which one you were getting. Inevitably you got one you already had and had to find a friend to trade with.
Sometimes the outer layer would wear off and you'd end up slapping your arm with bare metal. Dangerous, but so cool.
Almost as good as owning an actual car.
Posters of your favourite band
You plastered your bedroom with them.
Just the best things ever.
Their rosy cheeks were extremely cute. The coolest kids had matching bedding.
Merlin Football stickers
Completing a whole book was the Holy Grail.
Sometimes they came on the end of pencils, sometimes on a keyring, and sometimes you'd win one in a Tombola.
Glass animal figurines
Why were the kids of the '80s and '90s into these?
Looked great, but they tore the paper and left a black pencil smudge if you actually tried to use them.
You could conduct surprisingly complex life dramas for Polly in those tiny shell apartments.
