Gemr users are always uploading collectibles from different decades. And for some users, uploading and scrolling through the site searching for collectibles from their childhood is their favorite thing to do on Gemr. Lately, we’ve noticed a lot of great items from the 90’s popping up all over the site. So for all you 90’s kids, here are 10 collectibles on Gemr that will make you feel nostalgic.
How many school detentions do you think this little gadget is responsible for? The problem with the Tamagotchi was if you left it at home, nobody would take care of it, and it would die. But, if you brought it to school, the teacher would take it away, not take care of it, and it would die. A lose/lose situation! But, this Gemr user still has a few working Tamagotchis that they’re playing and hopefully not getting reprimands at work for!
2. THE ORIGINAL GAMEBOY
The Original Game Boy was a savior for so many ‘90s kids and their parents during long and boring car rides (until the batteries ran out). So many wonderful games to be played…Kirby’s Dream Land, Donkey Kong Land, Pokemon Red and Blue, Super Mario Land, the list goes on. This user’s Game Boy is still in working order.
3. DONKEY KONG 64
Nothing says “nostalgia” like Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64….With Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Lanky Kong, Tiny Kong, and Chunky Kong ‘90s kids spent HOURS trying to win back their bananas and take down King K. Rool. This Gemr user has even more great Nintendo 64 games in their collection. Check them out!
4. AMERICAN GIRL DOLLS
American Girl Dolls were all the rage in the 90’s and are still going strong today. For some of us, it was the doll that we could look at but not touch…due to the price tag and Mom or Dad’s rules. This particular Felicity Merriman doll was archived in 2011. So unlike us ‘90s kids, future generations will never know the struggles this doll faced while living in the colonies in 1774.
Playing your favorite Pog was probably the biggest gamble of your childhood because you only had a 50/50 chance of getting it back. But rare is the 90’s kid who actually knew the rules to this game. This Gemr user must have been pretty good at it though. Look at how many pogs are still in their collection!!
Oh Furby… This is the toy every ‘90s kid wanted and then immediately regretted having after discovering how annoying it was. The worst was when you accidentally set off it’s motion sensor in the middle of the night and woke it up. Then you were forced to spend the next 5 minutes trying to put it back to sleep. Good times though! This Gemr user apparently couldn’t get enough of them. Take a look at their collection!
7. BEANIE BABIES
Who saved their Beanie Babies hoping they will one day make you millions? Who’s still holding on to them and patiently waiting for that day to come? Aww man! Well, it didn’t make us the money we were anticipating, but they did give us hours of enjoyment while organizing, buying, trading, and showcasing our collections. Too bad there isn’t an online platform and app where collectors can do that nowadays….oh wait!
8. POLLY POCKET
There was once a time when our fingers were small enough to play with Polly in her miniature home. But even then, dropping her on the ground sent you on a wild goose chase all over the living room floor. Miraculously, this Gemr user somehow kept all their pieces together and has a great collection on Gemr.
9. POKÉMON CARDS
There are two kinds of ‘90s kid Pokemon Card collectors: The ones that got hustled out of a Charizard card and the ones who hustled you out of a Charizard card. Nevertheless, gone are the days where “catching ‘em all” was somewhat of a realistic goal. But, this Gemr user is pretty close. View their collection!
10. NICKELODEON SLIME BLASTER TELEPHONE
If you were one of the lucky kids whose parents let you have a phone in your room, this was the one to have. The Nickelodeon Slime Blaster Telephone had a “multi-ringer” feature. You could change the settings to either Cow Moo, Horn Honk, Laugh, Nick Noise (Nick, Nick, Nick), or standard ring when someone called…which nobody ever did. Ring!! Ring!! It’s nostalgia calling, they want the 90’s back.
