If You Are A 90’s Kid Then These Things Will Surely Make You Miss The Time Badly…Part-1

90's kids

If you are a 90’s kid, you probably feel pity to see today’s kids. It is said 90’s are the best decade ever. They didn’t have the coolest gadgets like today but they knew how to enjoy. Every time we look around our surroundings and wish to have a time machine to back to our childhood and escape from this smart gadget full world.

In 90’s there were no smartphones, internet, facebook, whatsapp, twitter, tablets, e-books, selfies but there was real enjoyment. Well, the time will never come back but we can remember some 90’s stuff which was the reason for our real enjoyment.

So, it’s time to be nostalgic

The old entertainment gadget

Remember the Sony Walkman! It was our companion whenever we travelled in the train or went outstation. We put cassettes and enjoyed our favourite music. Those 90’s memorable songs and this walkman were just perfect. Now in the era of mobile phones, it is a history now.



The 90’s kids loved to collect as many of those audio cassettes and you were the expert to fix the tapes whenever it got tangled.

Those paper boats

Film camera

The simple, old film cameras where there was no complex, no mode options. You just had to say cheese and click the button. No family outing was complete without the camera. And the excitement to see the printed photo! After clicking the photo you had to wait till the film was developed and pictures printed. Probably, 90’s was the last generation that got their pictures clicked on film.

The old telephone

slam books

Almost every school kids had this possessed treasure. This book had all the details you wanted to know about your friends; from the date of birth to what they want to be. This was actually a memory book. After school, you may have no contacts with your friends but this book reminded you about them. Now, there is Facebook for that but the cordiality is missing.

Floppy disks

floppy discs

Now it is an ancient thing no? It was a massive capacity of 1.44 MB. In that time, that capacity was enough for us. With the development of higher capacity CDs, DVDs, Pen Drives the floppy disc was nowhere to be found.

Your favourite chewing gums

Big Babol and Big Fun, we loved to chew it and competed with our friends to blow the largest bubble gum.

Eclairs, Mango Bite, Kismi


How could we forget those candies! No birthday party was complete without Eclairs. Mango Bite and Kismi were the treats for our taste.

Fountain Pen

You loved to write with these pens. You even loved the smell of the ink.

That list is not ending here…apart from this stuff there were many things which we really miss nowadays.

Pen is mightier than swords - these words make me passionate about writing. Except writing I love to travel , love to explore the unknown places, love photography and love listening to music. Also I am an avid reader of books. I'm a simple girl but I am what I am.
