If you're a 1990s kid...

Then you'll know the struggles we went through...

This one isn't on here; I came up with this one
When you seen everyone with light up gymshoes and then you got light up gymshoes. You thought you were hot stuff. Until those lights starting going out, one by one

Coloring the "Spacemaker" logo in the center of your pen box with markers and covering it with glue. Waiting for 2-3 days and making your own colored bookmarks. I'm definitely guilty as charged of this!

1. When you underestimated the ratio of graham crackers to frosting when eating Dunkaroos. You ended up with no frosting and all graham crackers

2. Having this catastrophe when inserting your Capri-Sun straw
3. When you hoped to go to the barber and get a "cool" haircut and instead walk out with a bowl cut
4. Watching your Tamgotchi die because the buttons were stuck

5. Being that one kid who still had a cassette Walkman instead of a CD Walkman
6. When you finally did get a CD player, you discovered the horror-it didn't fit in your pockets
7. The sad moment when reality hits-your Lion King color-changing spoon stops changing color

8. Having to open a million folders just to find the games on Windows 95
9.  The frustration that arises when you rent a movie from Blockbuster and come to find out the last person who rented it forgot to rewind!

10. Losing the feeling in your fingers from the weight of the candy in the McDonald's buckets
11. Running out of AOL minutes because you didn't have an extra free CD
12. The 3rd degree burns you sustain on the roof of your mouth because you couldn't wait for your Pizza Bagels to cool off

13. Your parents refusing to buy you CD's because of this label (This is like reverse psychology to kids. This label makes them want to listen to those CD's more because their parents don't want them to listen to it!)
14. When you got a new CD and were excited to listen to it, only to need everything but the kitchen sink to get it out of the plastic
15. You sank in your own sweat after sitting in one of these on a warm day
16. Being woken up in the middle of the night because your Furby decides to start talking...

17. This happens and sometimes for no good reason
18. When the VCR eats your favorite tape

19. Having eight valuable seconds of play time before your Nintendo game self destructs

20. Accidentally pulling the home phone off the receiver because the cord was tangled

21. When you programmed the VCR to record an episode of a show you like, it does not come out like you expect

22. When you run a light colored marker over a dark color
23. When the fabric of your slap bracelets rips and the sharp plastic underneath pokes you
24. Playing with your Skip-It and not wearing socks or long pants and having red rings around your ankles, making it look like you were wearing handcuffs on your ankles like a prisoner

25. Despite all the care and love behind your Beanie Baby tags, they still bent
26. Losing the eraser tip to your mechanical pencil. Two words: YOU'RE SCREWED!

27. Receiving temporary blindness from the sun reflecting off the metal slide, third degree burns as you went down them and temporary deafness from those kids who feel the need to scream like they're being murdered
