12 '90s Toys You Can Still Buy on Amazon

Editors' pick: Originally published Dec. 12.

Whether you were a parent or a kid in the the 1990s, it's hard to forget the nostalgic toys that became playground status symbols. After all, if it was on Nickelodeon commercials, it was worth its weight in gold.

Though slightly modernized in some cases because nothing is sacred, anything from a Bop It to an Easy Bake Oven can still be bought from a variety of sellers on Amazon. Give the next generation (or yourself) the gift of the '90s this holiday season. 

1. Tamagotchi

Nothing quite matches the stress and responsibility of caring for and playing with a digital pet. This wasn't a game; it was a lifestyle.  

2. Nintendo Game Boy - Original

What was life like before the app store? If you didn't have a Game Boy to play with on the bus, you were nothing. What started in 1989 became the ultimate mobile gaming experience of 1990s, spawning multiple remakes, eventually in precious color. 

3. Bop It

Pull it, twist it or bop it. What '90s kid's birthday party was complete with it Bop It and the arguments it ultimately caused. 

4. Nickelodeon Gak

It was the incredible and squeezable bane of every '90s mom's existence. Within approximately two seconds of taking it out of the package, it was covered in dirt and hair; kids loved every minute of it. 

5. Furby

It's still around and just as annoying and simultaneously terrifying as ever. Now Furby can connect to the world with its own app...because that's what everyone needed. At least you can put it to sleep with a blessed sleep mask. 

6. Beanie Babies

Without the iconic heart tag, it's just the same old raggedy stuffed animal. Stuff a stocking with a revamped or more old school version of the iconic toy. 

7. Super Soaker 

The brand is no longer made by Larami, but Nerf has taken the torch and continued to arm children with portable water hoses. What's a summer picnic without water to the face? 

8. Tickle Me Elmo

The nauseatingly cute giggle that launched many a '90s Walmart fight laughs on. 

9. Easy Bake Oven

Once controversial for gendering cooking with its pink and purple exterior (never stopped me), Easy Bake is now available in more gender neutral designs. No child should be denied the joy of baking brownies with a lightbulb.  

10. PlayStation 

Long before wireless controllers and WiFi connected gaming, the mother of all PlayStations frustrated gamers everywhere. Imagine the delight (horror) when the kid who asked for the PlayStation 4 opens up this piece of history. They'll probably settle down when you introduce them to Final Fantasy....maybe. 

11. Nintendo NES Classic Edition

Yes, it was originally released in 1985, but that's what made it a living room staple by the 1990s. Just imagine the glory of having The Legend of Zelda pre-installed. 

12. Nintendo 64

Forget the Wii, the Wii U and even the NES, the cult of the Nintendo 64 remains just as strong as ever. Yes, there was Mario Kart before the wheel.
