The 90s Tag

This is my 100th blog post - woooohooo yippee yay!
Ever since watching  Zoella & Tanya Burr do this tag in a video a few weeks ago I've wanted to join in and do it in post form on here!
I am the same age as Zoe as was born a month before her on 8th February 1990 - making me a hardcore 90s child, 1990 all the way baby!
So here we go .... The 90s Tag, with some hilarious photos for you all the enjoy....


1. Favourite Disney Film?
If we are talking about when I was younger I think I'm going to have to say The Lion King or Toy Story. I still remember standing in the huge line at my local cinema to go and see Toy Story for the first time when it came out in 1995 - it was so exciting because it was Pixar's first big movie! I remember always wanting the Buzz & Woody toys, I sound like a right tomboy! I'm still such a huge Disney fan, I always will be obsessed! (and yes that is my Disney DVD collection)


2. Favourite Music Artist?
Well clearly top of the list has to be the Spice Girls, I remember being 6 and going up to one of my friends in the playground and saying "Have you heard that song Wannabe?" - they were amazing and I even owned the Spice Girl trainers (yes they were a thing!)
I also LOVED Steps, my first ever concert was going to see Steps for my 9th birthday, my Mum even took me out of school early so we could go, haha like anyone could get away with doing that now! And yes I went to the reunion tour last year - it was awesome! I was a HUGE fan of pop music (and I still am) and loved all girls and boy bands going... S club 7, 5ive, A1 (the best boyband in my opinion), Aqua oh and I can't forget Britney Spears - check out my incredible CD selection!

3. Favourite Candy/Sweeties?
This list is endless! When I was younger I loved "Opal fruits" and I remember when they changed to Starburst! Do any of you remember that?
 Obviously all the 1p sweets you could get were just amazing, going to the corner shop and filling up a bag, when did this stop?!! I LOVED Wispa Gold's and am still extremely excited that they have bought them back! (ooo and I loved having Echo's in my lunchbox too :)
4. Favourite Game (Board Game, School Game etc)
Board Games... I loved Frustration and Kerplunk! Monopoly was fun but it always takes so long! My brother and I also had a Mega Drive which we were obsessed with - Sonic The Hedgehog and The Lion King were our favourites, we spent days and days on that machine!

5. Favourite McDonalds Happy Meal Toy?
Anything Disney!


6. Favourite Book?

Like all young girls in the 90s I was obsessed with Jacqueline Wilson books, I think I nearly read them all and I even met her at a book signing once (check out that photo!) When I was a little bit older aswell I LOVED Louise Renninson's books (The Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal snogging series.) - the movie was nowhere near as good as the books, I'd still read them now!


7. Favourite Clothing Store?

It has got to be Tammy Girl - I bloomin' well loved that store! My favourite items being a top which had a massive smiley face on it and was covered in badges and some super (and I mean huge) flare black jeans with a pink chain... oh I was such a skater girl!

8. Favourite NickJnr Show?

Well I didn't have NickJnr channel but there was alot of it on CBBC & CITV, I liked Rugrats and Alvin & the chipmunks! 
But when I was younger  my FAVOURITE show was without a doubt - Maid Marion and Her Merry Men - if you didn't watch this.. you missed out, it was amazing!

9. What would you watch when you got home from school?
What wouldn't I watch? Here's just a short list of shows I loved as a kid.... Playdays, Short Change, Byker Grove, Aquila, Madhouse, Jeopardy, Round The Twist, Rugrats, The Fresh Prince, The Simpsons, Buffy (which you all know if my fav show of all time), Clarissa Explain It All, Sabrina, Dinosaurs, Recess, Saved By The Bell, Hangtime, Stingray, Captain Scarlet, The Racoons, Kenan & Kel, The Secret World Of Alex Mac, Eerie Indiana, Arthur, Animorphs, Albert the fifth musketeer, Oscar's Orchestra  Dawson's Creek, Sister Sister, The Animals Of Farthing Wood, Alvin & The Chipmunks, Brum, Come Outside, Through The Dragons Eye, Live & Kicking, SMTV Live..... crickey the list is endless!

I wish there was more questions in this tag it's been so fun thinking back to my childhood!
Were you a 90s child?

  1. !!! I also love the The Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging series! I have the entire collection, and I'm currently reading the5/6th(?) one! I've actually yet to find someone who has actually read them, so yay! I love the movie though, Aaron Johnson was so gorgey in that one!

    Even though I was a 90's kid, I went all ~hipster~ and didn't really listen to the pop music of the time + watch the tv shows, haha ._.'' I remember BSB, N'Sync, Spice Girls, and Britney Spears being sung all over the school yard. Oh good days

  8. Love this post! You've got me reminiscing about the good old days! I loved The Rescuers Disney film and recently got it on DVD! I used to be so obsessed with Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Saved by the Bell, I must confess to occasionally watching old Sabrina re-runs on PopGirl these days (cringe) they just really cheer me up and remind me of childhood!
