As an out and proud fan of The Babysitters Club, when I heard there was a reboot in the works I squealed with excitement. Finally, a legitimate reason to get my nineties back on - and watch some of my favourite childhood literary characters come back to life.
Despite Netflix's new adaption of thebeloved Ann M. Martin series being set in the present day, it is exactly (I’m talking exactly) like the original books.
With small details for true fans to pick up on, plus a heap of sly nineties pop culture nods for any millennial to revel in, the show is a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Watch: 90s kids, remember these? Post continues below.
1. The fashion.
Paying homage to the 90s, the characters' fashion embraces trends from generations ago that are back in style today, from hair scrunchies to bold graphic prints. There's even some yellow plaid, which Claudia wears in a pair of trousers in an early episode - a subtle nod to the iconic ensemble worn by Cher in cult 1995 film Clueless. Alicia Silverstone plays Kristy’s mother in the reboot.
Kristy’s iconic red baseball cap also makes a regular reappearance; definitely her trademark accessory.
