These 31 Memes for 90s Kids Are All That and a Bag of Chips

The 90s were a magical time filled with glitter, neon, spandex, and blow-up furniture. Growing up in the 90s meant that we were the last to know a time before the internet, iTunes and YouTube, text messaging, and social media.

We D.A.R.E.d to spice up our lives with girl power, Lip Smackers, and platform shoes, and also to dabble in witchcraft after watching The Craft, but we did so in fuzzy sweaters and plaid skirts while reeking of CK One and sucking on our pacifier necklaces (don’t ask).

Now, we’re knee deep in pacifier clips for actual pacifiers, our own Rugrats, and crippling student loan debt.

Do the electric slide (boogie woogie, woogie) into a heavy dose of nostalgia with this notoriously B.I.G. list of 90s memes from funny parents on the non-dial-up internet.
