Things I Miss

Super soakers. I remember when these first came out, you just had to get one. Then, as soon as you bought one, they came out with a bigger one. It got to the point that they actually built one with a tank you strapped to your back. They might still make these, I dunno.

M.U.S.C.L.E. Men. What a sweet toy these were. There were tons and tons of different guys to collect. I don't know why, but I've always loved collecting things.

MC Hammer pants. My Mom made some of these for me when I was little. They were bright neon green. Stretchy waist? You bet. Awesome.

Color changing t-shirts. I couldn't find a better picture of this. But these shirts would change color when you blew on them, or pressed your hand against them. They were usually bright, neon colors.

Crystal Pepsi. Mmm mmm, delicious. The best part? You had to go pee about 10 seconds after drinking it.

Pogs. Sweet, just plain sweet. I loved collecting these things, not to mention slammers. Did I know how to actually play the game? No. Did anyone? I doubt it. Oh well.

Slap on bracelets. So cool that even boys wore them. Then there started to be rumors about kids dying from these, cause the metal they were made from was slitting wrists. Doubt it.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Turtle Pies." Bright green, and full of vanilla pudding. Need I say more? They tasted just like they sound, delicious.
