    first of all, pogs are coming back why were those ever even cool? It literally was the lamest game ever!!

    I seriously owned probably 18 of the 20 items on that list at one point.

    what did they leave out that was huge for those of us that grew up in the 90's?
    -I think super nintendo was way bigger then dreamcast
    -remember koala yummies?
    -chia pets?

    Funny--I can remember all of those things and feel like I had all of them, but when I think about it I think I only ever actually had about three of them. I guess that shows the power of advertising even after 10 to 20 years.

    This was more late 80's than 90's, but does anyone remember Captain Power?

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVhO4hmCj60]YouTube - 1988 Captain Power Video Game[/ame]

    If I remember right, the idea was to shoot your gun/plane at the targets that popped up while watching the show on video or in syndication. It sounded unbelievably cool for the time. Then I played it once at a cousin's house, and it turned out to be unbelievably lame.

    I had the Starter Jacket and of course the playstation. Loved all of these and if I didn't have them I really wanted them.

    Oh Sega Genesis, how I've missed you. Was so mad at my mom the day she gave it away because she thought we were too old for it. Now she herself has a Wii in her home, and we play games all the time when we're there.

    Pogs--what was the purpose again? Pretty sure I still have several canisters of them in some closet back home though.

    Between me and my brothers we had several Starter jackets--Dolphins, Cowboys, Mighty Ducks, Hornets, Bulls, probably some other I'm forgetting. Those rocked.

    I have an old Iowa State starter jacket that was a gift. Someone found it at a garage sale in the last 10 years. Back in the early 1990s those could get you shot some places around here.

    Funny! There was a thread earlier that asked about your favorite Christmas gift ever. I told Mrs. SLCyclone that mine would have to be "Creepy Crawlers" from about 1965! I didn't know they brought it back in the 90's. And by the way, my parents were far from rich.
