Every '90s Girls Christmas Wish List

An ultimate list of the toys that stole our hearts in the '90s.

Every '90s Girls Christmas Wish List

1. Water Snakes

My siblings and I called these "Jiggers", but apparently the official name for this beloved (and totally pointless) '90s toy is Water Snakes. I do not know if it was the colorful, glitter-filled liquid or the fascination of squeezing your wrist into them, but somehow this toy stole the hearts of everyone during the '90s.

2. Skip It

The Skip It was really a fascinating invention. This toy allowed you to practice your jump rope skills, while also having the potential to shatter your ankle each time you missed the rope. Besides the pain this toy caused me, I would still give it at 10/10 for entertainment.

3. The Original Furby + The Furby CD-ROM Computer Game

Still just as frightening as the new furies.

4. Doodle Bear

Shortly after Mom and Dad banned you from writing on the walls, the Doodle Bear was released. These bears encouraged us to write on our toys and managed to earn a spot in every '90s girls toy box.


5. Polly Pockets

Tiny dolls, tiny clothes, and tiny houses to keep them in. What's not to love?

6. Kitty Surprise

My Kitty Surprise came with five kittens, which was quite impressive. I loved opening the velcro pouch to reveal the five kittens. Apparently the original Kitty Surprise can sell for anywhere between $2,000 and $5,00, if you know someone who wants one badly enough. Unfortunately, I trusted my Beanie Babies to earn me some extra money one day instead my Kitty Surprise.


7. Beanie Babies

Not only did all '90s girls love Beanie Babies, but the majority of us still have them. Beanie Babies are probably the most iconic toys of our generation.

8. Trolls

With their brightly colored hair and matching belly jewel, the original Troll dolls quickly became popular with my generation. '90s girls have different perspectives on Trolls. My sister is still terrified of these.

9. Fashion Plates

No complaints about these plastic pieces that helped you draw masterpieces.

10. Easy Bake Ovens


This toy has survived through generations.

11. Lite-Brite

This toy kept my brother, sister, and I occupied for hours. I'm sure stepping on the tiny glass pegs was an annoyance for our parents. Completing a masterpiece and lighting it up was the coolest thing. (Mom, do you have any idea where this is?)

12. Pokemon Stuffed Animals.

These may still be on many '90s girls current Christmas lists.

13. Barbie Karaoke

Anything Barbie was classified as a need for '90s girls at some point in their lives.


14. Magic Nursery Doll

Their eyes "open" when you rub ice cubes over them, and you don't know what gender your doll is until you open the box. They have soft bodies and hard, slightly orange heads. Mine came from a free box at a yard sale and entered my life when I was two, instantly becoming my favorite toy. I named mine Lucy and took her everywhere. I still have Lucy sitting on my bed. I am 22.

15. Pound Puppies

What's not to love about cuddly dogs with giant, sad eyes? My childhood experiences with Pound Puppies may have been a precursor to my love for volunteering at the animal shelter.


16. The Ice Skating Barbie Doll (That Didn't Work)

The commercial displayed her as the most beautiful, talented, and fascinating Barbie doll of our generation. I remember how excited I was when I realized that my grandparents had bought me one, and how disappointed I was when it didn't work. Even though this doll could not actually ice skate on the plastic pond that came with her like the commercials promised, she was still a staple to the '90s Girls Christmas List.

17. Tamagotchi

I'm not lying when I say everyone had a Tamagotchi. These virtual pets remained popular with some '90s girls until high school. The shared fascination for feeding, playing with, and raising a virtual pet is universal. Excuse me, Hatchimals, but Tamagotchi's were here first.


18. Dream Phone

In a world before all teenagers had their own cellphone, Dream Phone was one of the best gifts you could receive. The Dream Phone was the first game brought out at sleepovers.

19. Poo-Chi

Again, and I can't stress enough, the '90s had the best virtual pets. These robotic dogs have been replaced by something called Fur Real Friends, which I promise are no where near as exciting as the Poo-Chi.

20. American Girl Dolls

American Girl Dolls have stood the test of time with their beautiful dresses and overly priced accessories.

21. Lisa Frank Everything

Animals, neon colors, and glitter. What could be better?


22. Walkie Talkie's.

It's unfortunate that future generations will not get to experience the wonders of Walkie Talkie's. Since cellphones are no longer a luxury for adults only, this beloved '90s toy is over and out.

23. Crayola Crayon Maker

Like anything Barbie, anything made by Crayola was also a necessity. There is nothing like the smell of melting crayons.

24. Bop-It

I accredit the Bop-It for my ability to multitask as an adult. Being able to write articles for the Odyssey while binge watching SVU, drinking Dr. Pepper, and studying at the same is a very transferable skill.


25. Art Supplies Kit

While most of these were cheaply made with off brand markers that dried out within days of opening them, you just had to have one.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
