Atari Lynx Portable Color Entertainment System

If you don’t have a Lynx, are you even a gamer? You guys, this thing put high powered LCD full color gaming in the PALM OF YOUR HAND. Suck it dad, no more road trip games for me. I’m playing with POWER. …Atari power.

I still don’t understand what this thing did or why people loved it but holy shit people loved it. It was basically the early 90’s Minions.

New Kids On The Block Figures

Each of these came with an interview with that New Kid on cassette and these in no way helped preteens across the country learn about themselves, or their likes or dislikes. Puberty is weird.

Nerf Fencing

If you didn’t have two of these to pair with your NERF bow and arrow, why were you even alive?

NOTE: No kids could afford that and if they said that did, they were the same liar that claimed to own the GI Joe aircraft carrier. It’s just, you know, at my grandparents’ house. Yeah, I know you were full of shit, Curt.

Beetlejuice Creepy Cruiser

This is totally where they got the Joker mobile from the Suicide Squad movie. Can not unsee.
