Blast To The Past: 12 Wonderful Online Childhood Computer Games

Remember when we had a rainy day at school during the elementary years? The recess bell meant a surge of children running to the computers to compete at some awesome games, from websites like and The lucky kids who nabbed a computer were surrounded by their classmates who egged them on but secretly wished the computer kids would hurry up and lose so they, too, could have a turn. Now that we all have our own laptops, take a trip down memory lane and give another go to just a few of the many wonderful games that made up our childhood (with the exception of poor Club Penguin).

Tipton Trouble

Tipton Trouble is a classic game from The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, in which you must put up all the posters for their mom's concert and avoid getting caught by characters like Maddie or Mr. Moseby. Goin' up! Don't' forget about the epic Pizza Party Pickup game! Play Tipton Trouble here:

Moshi Monsters

Create your own Moshi Monster and tickle it or take it on an adventure as an ice cream scooper. You can customize your house and interact with friends. My Moshi Monster's name is TickleFairy438! Bet you can't come up with a weirder name. Make your own monster here:


Ah, the wonderful world of Poptropica: so many games and so many choices. You can make your own character (and it can be up to 15 years old, but we all know the site has a bunch 20 year olds reliving their childhoods) and go on adventures, and your ultimate goal to complete the games on each island. The link is short and sweet:


This game is tricky because the player must manipulate the block so that it goes into the slot -- without letting the block fall off the edges and before accumulating too many moves. Bloxorz can be frustrating but it's really rewarding when you figure out all the tricks involved...sometimes you have to hit the hammer on the head to get it to work...(hint, hint). Try it out here:


If you owned a Webkinz in the flesh, then you knew. This virtual world allows you to make an entire home for your pet(s) and you can buy whatever you desire -- a game room, 5 kitchens, 2 bedrooms, a garden. And, of course, don't forget to check out the arcade and rack up some Smoothie Moves! If you remember your information, you might have some luck but otherwise you might need to buy a webkinz to access the site:

Line Rider

A game of creativity and problem-solving, Line Rider provides you with a blank slate in which you can draw a race track for your sledder -- no rules and unlimited tries. Be careful, though. One wrong twist or jump and your sledder could fall off of his sled into a white abyss or be decapitated. I challenge you to make a track with at least 3 loops! Take the challenge here:

Club Penguin (R.I.P.)

When Club Penguin died, it was like the end of an era. No more chat room and saying dorky things to anyone who would reply or returning to your igloo at the end of a long day. No more Music Jam or Adventure Party. Club Penguin, you are missed and your successor, Club Penguin Island, is just not the same.

Bouncing Balls

Can't you just feel the anticipation of that weight dropping on you because you didn't clear all the balls in time?? A classic rainy day game, Bouncing Balls requires you to hit the ball under the weight with a ball from the gun (the arrow-looking thing at the bottom) of the same color. Beat the clock or you're screwed, man. Check the game out here:

Check out Cool Math Games for other hits like Ninja Painter, Gluey, Parking Mania, and Bloons!

Acne Popper Game

Okay, I admit, this was probably not your go-to game as a child, and there's a good chance you've never heard of it until now. I couldn't resist putting this game in here because I got (and get) a kick out of it since it's so satisfying! Try and pop all this poor sap's pimples before time runs out! Use the Mega Splat button if you're in a crunch. Play here:


A mass field of cubes. Two controls, the left and right arrows. One battleship. Who will be the victor, your battleship or the mighty cubes? Just don't hit the cubes or you're done for. I have to warn you, this game is extremely addictive. Play at your own risk here:

625 Sandwich Stacker

WATCH OUT! Don't let the moldy cheese or the fish skeleton hit your sandwich! Or the old shoe. Or the old sauce. But do be sure to rack up those delicious, fresh ingredients as high as you can before finishing off your sandwich with a nice, toasty slice of bread. Also highly addictive. Enjoy:

American Girl Pet Grooming Studio

A classic associated with the beloved American Girl Doll store, the mission of this game is to clean as many pets as possible before the timer is up. Tasks include bath time, brushing teeth, and clipping nails. The animation is adorable and the challenging yourself is quite fun. Get to cleaning here:

I hope you enjoy these games; don't get sucked into the internet for too long!

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
