The 1994 Holiday Gift Guide!


There are times when I both envy and feel sorry for this current generation of kids. Its only natural for everyone to feel at least a little nostalgic when looking back at there childhood, all the while thinking that there generation was the best. So maybe I'm a little once sided here but I really do believe that growing up in the 1990s was simply hands down the best time to be a kid.

In the 90s we got to experience the very beginning of the “technology age” without being completely ran over by it. Some of the best video game systems of all time where released in the 1990s, I'm talking about heavy hitters like the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Sony Playstation, and technically the Sega Dreamcast belongs to us as well. But unlike the following generations of kids, nobody used words like “obese” to describe us. 

 Like our 80s counterparts we were just as inclined to go outside and scrape our knees, jump on trampolines, and run around the block like idiots until our parents called us inside. We had more motivation from shows like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Power Rangers to generally want to go outside and kick the shit out of one another. Not to mention that we did it all without safety gear.
