Face it: The 90s were a simpler time, when a few butterfly hair clips and an inflatable lounge or two were the height of sophistication.
We’re about to see a new Jurassic Park movie. Scream is being made into a tv show. And a walk into any toy store will tell you that troll dolls are back. All that got us thinking – what other 90s trends and icons do we need to see back in our lives?
If you were a ’90s kid, chances are you were a big fan of all 11 items on this list.
It’s time to bring them back…
1. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
No ’90s-related post is ever complete without a Fresh Prince of Bel Air reference, and with good reason: It is the undisputed best show of all time.
Plus, Will Smith hasn’t aged a day since 1991 so he could effortlessly step back into the role.
And there is definitely an appetite for the Fresh Prince’s return, as this unsuspecting news anchor found out this week when he took a call from someone whose story sounded strangely familiar…
2. Inflatable furniture.
A purple inflatable couch was all I wanted for the Christmas of 1998. And I wouldn’t be against replacing my current Ikea sofa with one of these bad boys right now.
The jams. The attitude. The matching outfits. Need we say more? Plus they just don’t make music like that anymore. Quite literally, they don’t. Salt-N-Pepa have become quite devout Christians and now tone down their lyrics at their live performances. Theses days, they are decidedly PG rated.
Bring back SnP’s dirty beats and even filthier bump and grind.
4. Hypercolour everything.
It was CLOTHING that CHANGED COLOUR. It was like a mood ring, but for your clothes. The novelty never wore off. Let’s bring it back. And not just on clothes. How about hypercolour toilet seats, so you know whether you’re going to sit on one that is going to be…warm.
