Everyone in the nineties wanted one of these. You could also connect with friends to play. You had games like Mario and Pokemon. The Game Boy also came out with a new colorful style in the late 90s called the Game Boy Color. This toy then evolved into many other devices, like the DS and Switch.

     Another toy that was popular were Polly Pockets. In the nineties, you would want to collect as many as possible. They were a smaller version of  Barbie. Polly Pockets came with houses and clothes. Then, you could get cars and many other accessories. Polly Pocket came out with mini versions of everything. You had mini houses, people, and cars.

     Another fun toy were Slinkies. Slinkies were very flexible and fun to play with. Although, you  would not want to get it twisted! You could buy these toys at the store or at your local arcade. You could get them multicolored or just a plain silver. These entertaining toys are still available in stores. Slinkies are fun for every age group!

     Troll Dolls were very fun to collect and share. These dolls had multi-colored hair and naked bodies. They also had bedazzled belly buttons. Troll dolls were even featured in some movies. These dolls can be found today, as well. The more of these trolls you had, the cooler you were.

     Pokemon cards was another collective toy. You would find a friend and play each other. You would place the next card in your card stack on the table. Whoever had the higher HP would win that round. There are hundreds of cards that you could have gotten. At the local store, you would beg your mom to pick you up one of the mystery packs.

    In conclusion, the 90s toys were very fun and highly entertaining. Instead of web surfing, you could play with your friends. These toys were collectibles and are rare to find in original form. Some people could argue that these toys are better than the toys that are around today.
