9 Mid-2000s Toys You Saw Ads For On Disney Channel That Went Straight To Your Christmas List

When I was a kid I pretty much had my Christmas list ready to go half-way through the year, complete with a million items. I knew what I wanted Santa to bring me and kept adding and adding items up until Christmas Eve. Lucky for me there were plenty of toys to want growing up in the 2000s. Every day while watching Disney Channel commercial after commercial of toys were on my screen, so yeah I pretty much wanted everything.

Now that I'm in college, my Christmas list pretty much consists of toiletries and fancy pens that I like to take notes with, and I am perfectly okay with that. It must be a sign that I have officially grown up.

While this year I am expecting some deodorant and toothpaste in my stocking, here are nine things that I and many others had been hoping for in the early-to-mid 2000s.

1. An American Girl Doll and accessories 

I'm not going to lie, I was very fortunate and lucky for me my grandparents got me an American Girl doll for Christmas for about seven years. Yes, I was that crazy that I wanted that many. Between my sister and I, we had about 14 of them.

So, yes, I do know more about American Girl dolls than you do.

2. Nintendo DS

There truly was nothing greater than Pictochatting your sibling from across the room and annoying your family while playing Nintendogs.

3. Silly Bandz

Silly bandz will always have a special little place in my heart. I'll never forget slingshotting them across the classroom at my friends, covering my entire forearms with them and forcing my mom to buy a pack of them every time we went to the store.

4. Easy-Bake Oven 

During my time with my Easy-Bake Oven, I probably only made one edible brownie and definitely melted all of my plastic utensils.

5. Webkinz

Ganz

I remember when Webkinz were in their prime cost $20 a piece. Now you can find them in your local Pat Catan's for $2.99. What a time to be alive.

6. Polly Pockets

Half of the time I just wanted Polly Pockets because I liked to chew on her squishy clothes and shoes. I'm pretty sure my mom feared for my life every day because she thought I was going to choke on a Polly Pocket shoe.

7. Bratz

First off, is the girl on the far right wearing cheeseburger heels? Also, the Bratz movies had the best bops. Bratz are 100% better than Barbies. They just had a passion for fashion that I never knew I needed when I was eight.

8. Littlest Pet Shop

Hasbro / Amazon

There was something so cool about the fact that these little figurines had a magnet on the bottom of one of their feet. I used to put them all over my fridge.

9. Nintendo Wii

Nintendo Wiis were all the rage when they first came out. I remember my parents searched high and low for a Wii the year they came out. When we finally got it I became the master of "Guitar Hero" on the easy level.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
