Toys from the 1990s

The ultimate list of toys and games from the 90s!

The super soaker was a "souped-up" water gun that was extremely popular throughout the nineties. If you were equipped with one of these in a water fight, the rest of your opponents were no match (especially if they were using one of those DIY water bottles with the small hole in the cap).



Originally launched in 1993, Beanie Babies were a line of soft toys that included characters such as "Legs the Frog" and "Squealer the Pig". Ty Warner Inc., the company that made them, deliberately made some of the characters scarce in order to increase their value as a collectable.



Celebrities, then and now.

Smart Guy - Disney

I still remember tuning into the Disney Channel, just so I could watch the show "Smart Guy".

Smart Guy cast

Smart Guy was about a gifted youngster called TJ Henderson, who was transferred into High School at the age of 10 because of how intelligent he was. TJ was played by actor Tahj Mowry, who is now 26 years old!

Here's a picture of what TJ (Tahj Mowry) looks like now:



Remember Mo, who was Marcus Henderson's best friend?



Remember Yvette, TJ's older sister, who Mo was always hitting on? (Played by Essence Atkins).



Remember the intro song, which basically repeated the sentence "He's a smart guy!"

RoboCop Versus The Terminator - Sega

"RoboCop Versus The Terminator" was released back in 1993 for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Genesis. This was the same year that saw WWF Monday Night Raw premier for the first time. It was the year that Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" made it to the top of the singles charts. 1993 was also the year that Dr Dre released his classic rap album "The Chronic".

Micky Mania - Sega

This is another game that I have fond memories of. "Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse" is a platformer gamer that was released back in 1994 for the Sega Megadrive and Genesis. The game followed Mickey Mouse as he hopped his way through several levels, all of which were based on certain eras of Disney cartoons.
