Being a 90s kid was so awesome in my opinion. I, myself am from 95, and I feel like I grew up in a fantastic decade. When I look at how I grew up, and kids now you can see the difference. Now the kids are much more technological, than I was at that age. When I was young we played outside, and I had no idea how to work a computer, but the kids now a days know.
Well I wasn’t going to talk about that!! I Want to talk about things I remember from my childhood.
Okay, so this was the most awesome shit ever! I mean, I watched so much Pokémon when I was young, and it was so rockingly awesome. I don’t know many people my age, who DOESN’T know the intro song. This was by far one of the best things about being a kid. And there was playing cards. We always sat in circles in school and played… That shit was serious! FYI – My favorite Pokémon was, is and always will be Charmander!

Okay, if I say “The going down stairs feather” everyone always knows what I’m talking about. This is the most pointless playing object ever, since it wasn’t really that fun. First you had to spend time to find the ...read more
Television shows, celebrities and musicians were a huge influence on 90s kid’s clothes. Popular shows such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Beverly Hills 90210,” as well as grunge rockers such as Nirvana, swept through the world of fashion, changing the way that young people dressed. Fashion was often seen as an expression of the child’s personality or preferences. From head to toe, the fashions of the ’90s were innovative to the decade.
In the ’90s, it was common to see youth dressed as if they had just woken up rather than took the time to put the ensemble together before leaving the house. In other words, the disheveled look was in from head to toe. Hair for both girls and boys tended to be long, loose and at times downright greasy. Jeans, rock T-shirts and flannel shirts were the prime staples of children’s closets that were rocking this look.
Beverly Hills Look
On the other side of the spectrum were the children dressing like their favorite teen stars. The preppy look popularized by the hit show “Beverly Hills 90210″ was more tailored and refined than the grunge ...read more
I believe that we all know that 90s is the quite different time, so the children who was born in 90s is also unique, we call them ’90s, and more and more experts are concering about them these years. A ground breaking long-term study started in the 1990s to provide a resource for investigating the health and wellbeing of young people has celebrated its 21st birthday this week.
Fourteen thousand pregnant women from the Bristol area took part in what is known as the “Children of the 90s” study to improve the health of young people by examining various factors affecting them and their children.
The mothers completed questionnaires about the diet, lifestyle, behaviours, wellbeing, and health of both themselves and their young ones. When the children reached the age of seven they were questioned, examined, scanned, measured and weighed; they also gave samples of blood, urine, hair, nail clippings, and baby teeth every year or two up to the present. The parents’ health factors have also been monitored closely.
Professor Jean Golding, who initiated the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) at the University of Bristol in 1991 and was awarded an OBE for her work on the project, has paid tribute to the parents and ...read more
The teenages who born in 1990s are the special teenages. According to industry standards vintage style is anything officially 20 years or older, so only a piece produced between 1990 and 1992 is technically vintage for 2012.
They have very different opinions with us, no matter the fashion or the life. So depending on your personal opinion and vantage point to the era, the 90s is a toss-up for vintage classification. A girl who grew up in the 90s may prefer to avoid the trends of her childhood and prefer wearing ’50s, ’60s and ’70s clothing, while a teenager today may find the styles of the 90s vintage simply because she can’t remember ever having experienced them before.
The older people may think that 90s styles are all inacceptable. Since I grew up in this easy era and can remember most of the trends firsthand, I decided to thrift my favorite 90s styles for a fun trip down memory lane at my hometown Salvation Army in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
To share the history of 90s fashion trends, I combed the racks for the era’s most memorable pieces from cutesy denim overalls, printed shorts and crush-worthy velvet mini dresses to the era’s most quintessential prints like sunflowers, daisies, ditzy floral and preppy plaid.

“The X-Files” was a popular television show that landed on the air in the early 90s and had a large cult following. Fox Mulder, an FBI agent, believes in aliens and extraterrestrial life and is constantly seeking proof for his beliefs and investigating anything paranormal. He often wore a suit and tie and dressed very conservatively. Make or buy an FBI laminated badge to go with the costume. Say things like “The truth is out there,” and “Trust no one” to complete your costume. Carry a flashlight to look in dark places.
Will Smith played the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a rapping teenager who moved to Bel Air from Philadelphia. Smith wore a multitude of ball caps turned sideways, bright neon colors and crazy patterns. A patterned jacket, jeans, a cap and brightly colored high top sneakers would be a good Fresh Prince look, but the options are endless. Don’t forget a couple of gold chain necklaces and some black sunglasses to finish off the look.
The 90s men were all about grunge music. Bands like Nirvana and Alice in Chains dominated the charts and popularized the grunge fashion look. Oversized plaid flannel shirts, combat boots, torn up jeans and messy hair made this look stand out. This is an easy ...read more
