10-Bedroom Accessories Only ‘90s Kids Will Remember
Gone are the days of children playing with barbies or building dens – Generation Z children now have technology at their fingertips to keep them entertained, scrolling Instagram or playing a game of FIFA or Fortnight, ‘90s kids entertainment was far less advanced and involved caring for virtual pets or lounging on inflatable furniture.
If you were passing through your child or teen years in the ‘90s and didn’t have these iconic accessories, it’s practically a given that you were envious of your friends who did.
Here, Room to Grow share their top 10-bedroom accessories that will take you on a trip down memory lane:
1. Portable Panasonic Stereo
Wanted to play music in your room? It wasn’t as simple as linking up to a wi-fi enabled sound system and listening to songs on Spotify within seconds. Instead, you relied on your rather chunky portable stereo.
2. Extensive Collection of CD’s
Oh… and you had to trawl through 10’s or 100’s of CD’s to find the track you were after. It’s likely your prized CD collection included singles such as Britney Spears ‘…Baby One More Time’ and Spice Girls ‘Say You’ll Be There’.
3. VIRTUAL PETS
You had to tend to your Tamagotchi around the clock, keeping it happy, feeding it when hungry, disciplining if naughty and cleaning their droppings, or else they may become sick. And if that happens, you risked your beloved pet joining Tamagotchi heaven!
4. Gooey Alien Eggs
And you likely spent hours trying to make your Gooey Alien Eggs have babies by putting them into the fridge together. Much to your annoyance, they never gave birth!
5. Inflatable Chairs
The epitome of cool, after school you’d chill out with friends on your brightly coloured inflatable chair. It may not have been comfortable, but everyone had one, so you did too.
6. Dance Mat
Once you were all chilled out it was over to the dance mat for some friendly dance mat competition.
7. Magic 8 Ball
Reserved for important decisions, like ‘should I have a Sunny D?’, or if you wanted to see what the future held, your 8-ball was your go to. The fortune telling device was a go to for 90s kids wanting an answer to a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question.
8. Glow in the Dark Ceiling Stickers
Why actually sleep under the stars when you can sleep under artificial glow in the dark stars. Shining from your ceiling, glow in the dark stars, moons and planets were the ultimate bedroom addition to help soothe you to sleep come dusk.
9. Groovy Chick Bedding
Bang on the door merch was about as cool as it got. Their most iconic brand was arguably ‘Groovy Chick’, and pretty much every girl’s bedroom featured the design in one way or another. From duvet sets to wall stickers and pencil cases, the more Groovy Chick the better!
10. Lava Lamp
Nothing says mood lighting like a lava lamp. Although lava lamps have been around since the 70’s, were you really a ‘90s kid if you didn’t own one? Bonus points if yours had glitter inside it instead!
A Generation Z child would feel totally out of place in a ‘90s styled bedroom, although the basics remain the same; the bedroom’s main purpose is for sleeping, after all.
