15 Things You'll Only Remember If You Were A Kid In The Early 2000s

This brings back ALL the memories and makes me want to be a kid again.

973

If you didn't experience at least 10 of these things, I would guarantee that you weren't born in the early 2000s. These 15 items were all a vital part of my childhood. They are what shaped and created my memories.

I had forgotten about these items until I did a little bit of digging on the internet, and once I reminisced about the past, I was so happy. Oh, what I would give to go back and experience everything I did as a small child.

I went through this list with my 10-year-old sister and she only knew 3 out of the 15. She definitely missed out.

Keep reading to see some of my favorite childhood memories.

1. DragonTales

Sony

I so wish I had their colorful dragon scale. I can still hear their chant... "I wish, I wish, with all my heart, to fly with dragons in a land apart." I loved this fun show.

2. Kid Cuisine

Okay, yeah, these were gross, but you have to admit the pudding and sprinkles were worth it. I can still taste the chicken nugs.

3. Polly Pockets

Flickr

THESE WERE THE BEST! I remember I had about 50 little dolls and about a thousand rubber outfits for them. I would spend hours on end styling them.

4. Nintendogs

This seriously brings back so many memories that I forgot I had. The only thing I clearly remember is taking the dogs for walks whenever I could, just to pick up presents. This game will always have a piece of my heart.

5. Silly Bandz

Flickr

Pretty sure we all sold or traded these on the bus. If you didn't have your whole arm covered, you weren't cool. I remember very clearly in fourth grade when I had all my Silly Bandz on two carabiners and I thought I was alllll that.

6. Blockbuster

Oh man, I miss this store. Blockbuster was literally a part of my family. Going in and picking out movies was such a treat for me, and I will never forget it.

7. Lip Smackers

Flickr

Ohhhh girl, you best have had these at some point in your life. I know I had all the soda Lip Smackers. Oh, and fun fact, one time in second grade, I was in gym class and I ate the whole freaking Lip Smacker. Not kidding. My friend joined in too.

8. Lite Brites

My Lite Brite was all fun and games until I lost all the little pegs :( It's okay though -- none of my pictures looked good anyways.

9. DSi

Wikimedia

Oh. My. God. Pictochat. The OG camera filters. Playing until 10 pm when bedtime was 8 pm. I never parted with my DSi. Until I lost it at a local amusement park in fourth grade. Along with all my games (INCLUDING NINTENDOGS and my Super Mario game that had ALL the levels completed). I was mortified. I still am honestly.

10. Gimp

I used to make these until my fingers bled. I was the gimp master. Kinda want to try it again sometime ngl.

11. Easy Bake Ovens

Flickr

Okay I hated these but I thought I was cool for having one because I could "bake on my own".

12. Maya & Miguel

Scholastic

THIS SHOW. Oh my goodness. I don't really remember much, but I do know that I love it.

13. BrainPOP

Flickr

Gosh when this came on in the classroom, we knew it was going to be a good day. BrainPOP saved me in school many times.

14. Mr. Sketch Scented Markers

Flickr

No, I didn't smell them 24/7. Well? Maybe. I won't reveal my secrets.

15. Floam

Amazon

I remember getting in trouble for covering my Christmas presents in floam after I opened them. I put some in my new Cabbage Patch kid's hair and ruined it. Sorry grandma and grandpa.

16. WordArt

The younger me is so happy right now. I would get so creative with these. I feel bad for all the kids who didn't get to use WordArt. It was truly a gem.

17. The Magic Treehouse

Amazon

I read every single book about 5 times each. I am not ashamed either. Jack and Annie have all my love.

18. Lisa Frank

Amazon

I am embarrassed to say that I loved Lisa Frank. I kind of remember the felt coloring pages where like the outlines of the picture were felt. I may be wrong but I feel like that's somewhere in my memories.

19. Trix Yogurt

YouTube

Way better than Gogurt. Way better than Yoplait. Way better than Activia. TRIX ARE FOR KIDS.

20. Flying Fairies

Amazon

Oh my baby. I loved this little toy. It would occupy me for hours so I bet my parents loved it too. :)

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.

NBC

I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
