20 Unforgettable Things That Prove 00's Babies Had The Best Childhood

Can I hear "throwback?"

20 Unforgettable Things That Prove 00's Babies Had The Best Childhood
Lauren Swanson

As I soothe myself from eating my feelings, developing a coffee addiction the other day, I began regressing back into childhood and started listing items in my head that I remembered...

My generation, the “Millennials,” spent the late '90s and early 2000’s living off bagel bites and drinking Sunny D.

Here are some of the things I remember deeply...

1. Tamagotchis

They’re $34 on Amazon guys, so hop on that deal. (Or 99 cents in the app store!)

2. Trix cereal used be shaped like this...

From Fruit to Balls.... What happened?!?!?!

Does anyone remember the yogurt as well?!?!?!

3. "Aqua-Pods" Water Bottle

I live in Texas so the water bottle brand that had these were Ozarka...



Let’s be honest, we still watch this… Well, we did until Netflix took it off.

But if you were Christian going up... You knew Sunday school was gonna be great if they had VeggieTales on...

And they expect us to pay $9.99 now.

Alas, Larry Boy is still goals.

5. The Video Store

Pre-DVD and Pro-Blockbuster, Friday nights were spent scouring the section for that one VHS you had already seen 300 times while your parents picked out yet another Cameron Diaz romantic comedy.

6. Ferbies

Our first best friends.

7. Mighty Beanz

"What are they suppose to do?!?!"- Five year old me

8. "Gripz"


9. Juicy Juice and Apple & Eve

Mmm...that artificial sugar.

10. "Trudy's Time and Place House"

Also featuring "Millie's Math House" and "Sammy's Science House!" These virtual friends gifted me with so much of the general knowledge that I have today.

11. Gym Scooters

12. Parachutes

Whether you were the cat, the mouse or one of the kids vigorously shaking the parachute, gym class and / or story hour was always bangin’ when your teacher brought this out of his / her office.

13. Neopets

Literally the only reason to have gone to McDonald's was to get that plush with that code... Yes. I remember webkinz.... But only many webkinz my parents could buy while still stuff was free and less regulated.

14. Looking up to Amanda Bynes as a powerful female role model.

15. Scholastic Book Fairs

Get the catalog in school, experience an adrenaline rush as you browse every product, take it home, circle all of the "Mercer Mayer Little Critter" books, beg your parents for money and come home the next day with a Spongebob poster, a long-ass pencil and an eraser shaped like a crayon.

16. Special Announcements

They came after lunch announcements (thank God for Pizza Fridays!) and before the Pledge of Allegiance. You better hope that your name isn’t called down to the office...unless it's your birthday!

17. Wonder Balls

No words needed.

18. Red Rover

Red rover, red rover, send money right over.

19. Bobby Jack and Happy Bunny Shirt

I was that annoying 9-year-old girl that constantly wore these...

These shirts are probably why my generation is so "vain..."

20. Go-gurts

"Good to the last drop."

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
