Nostalgia has a place in everyone's hearts, but no one floods the internet with their sentiments about the past as much as 90s kids. The 90s, after all, were a magical time when playing silly games outside all day met the development of modern technologies that have shaped and molded us into who we are now. And proud about it we are. However, since no age group spends online as much time as we do, cut us some slack, why don't you?

Many things made our childhood special — the CD player that wouldn't fit into any pocket, the legendary Tamagotchi, and hilarious 90s fashion that seem to have re-born nowadays quite seriously and not in the form of hilarious memes (much to our dismay). Most of these 90s nostalgia relicts are hardly available now, so we have to keep their memories alive. And what better way to do so than creating funny memes? Scroll down to check out the nostalgic selection of 90s trend that will instantly send every kid of the decade down the memory lane and upvote your favorites.
