Pogs, didn't play them though, just collect.

Lisa Frank stickers. Someone got me into them. I still love them no matter how old I am yet no longer buy them. ^_~

Playing classic Sonic games for the Sega Genesis.

I actually made a point of avoiding fads when I was a kid.  A bunch of people doing anything because a bunch of other people were doing it made that one of the few times in my young life I intentionally didn't "do what I was told".  XD

I had a Giga Pet once, it was a Christmas present and the pet was a Dalmation. I took care of that thing like it was an actual pet. Then one day I went to some airport in Ogden with my parents for boy scouts since they were pack leaders and I let some lady borrow it so their kid would calm down. I never got it back. I'm still pissed about it to this day.

Ah Pogs, loved playing with those things. Well our kind of playing wasn't the right way I don't think, my bro just really liked collecting them. In fact a few years back my bro came back from Guatemala and gave me some Spongebob pogs he bought there cuz apparently they're really popular there for kids.

I was also into Yu-Gi-Oh and collecting Pokemon cards.

Oh gosh what wasn't I into.

I love card games. I still have my original Pokemon card collection, although my Yugioh and Magic cards were lost to time.
...Also in general I have a big Pokemon collection.

Tamogatchis. Heck yeah. I had a thing about stuff that was miniaturized.

BOP IT. TWIST IT. PULL IT do do do do do
And those weird Skip things that you put on your ankles? Yeah.

Lisa Frank was my thing, but I also outgrew it WAY quick.

Stickers and bedazzling things. Shrug.

Did anyone actually know how to play with Pogs? I kinda just assumed they were just to collect.

I did the Pokemon thing a little, but not to the extent of some people. I watched the show and I had some cards but that was like it. My brothers and I had two Game Boy Advance SPs when those were the thing to have. These things. I almost laughed looking at that picture because, wow, that takes me back. My only handheld ~gaming~ experience to date.

I think I was into Lisa Frank too, and ohhh man, I had a Bratz Doll phase when those were A Thing. I remembered thinking their clothes were cooler than most Barbies were, so :P

To be fair, Bratz Dolls did have better clothes back then than Barbies. They just didn't have the cool car. XD

y0u 2tack up the p0g2 up2ide d0wn [the tube2 helped with thi2], then y0u take turn2 hitting the 2tack with the 2lammer. whatever 0ne2 land face up, y0u get t0 keep.

Yeah, we would have definitely gotten bored quickly of that. XD
