Why You Wished You Were An Adult In The '90s

There were plenty of reasons you wished you were an adult in the '90s. Being a kid was great, sure: you had your Polly Pockets, Legos and POGs as far as the eye could see. You were an irresponsible Tamagotchi owner, but that was fine — no one was blaming you, at ten years old, for forgetting to feed a fake pet.

What It's Like Explaining The '90s To Young People

Sometimes it can be difficult to nail explaining what the '90s were really like to today's young people. It can be hard to connect with a generation of kids floating around on hoverboards when we spent nights laying awake in bed dreaming of floating around on hoverboards. The world has changed so damned much since the '90s that there's a real and deep void between the generation that grew up then and the generation growing up now, and yet we try as hard as we can to capture the true spirit of th…
