Anybody else have this when they were little? Lol. I remember when I got it from KB Toys and I was wondering when the cycle would show up in an episode as a child.
Still would've been a cool concept.
The spice girls movie, dance stage euromix and dance mats, I'm blue by Eiffel 65, MyScene dolls and movies, all rugrats episodes and movies, the wild thornberrys, the Dinosaurs tv show, barney, pink wafer biscuits, pink cookie perfume, strawberry lipgloss, nelly furtado, blink 182, nesquik chocolate powder, the Corbett soft serve machines that did bomb ass ice cream cones, betty spaghetti, lunchables, ps1 games, watching Tokyo Mew Mew and the Jackie Chan cartoon on Jetix, playing Beehive Bedlam on the Sky box, old Tom and Jerry, disposable cameras, bubblegum tape, sparklers, every don bluth movie ever, series of unfortunate events books, frubes, babybels, Kylie minogue, the hi5 tv show, harvest moon, stardoll, temporary tattoos. Better times
Sometimes I use a hair spray from Tesco or something and the smell of it will legit carry me straight back to my scene days, it's wildly intense memories from that smell lmao. Scene nostalgia: the millionaires, jeffree star music not makeup, Audrey kitching, hair spray, monster drinks, 00s era digital cameras, Claire's accessories, retarded YouTube videos like 1800-im a unicorn and llamas with hats, watching onision during the Shiloh times, essence dream matte mouse foundation, clip in extensions, shagbandz, bebo, watching the jurikoloveshim hair tutorial, stargazer makeup, the ^_^ emoji, having an edgy username with alliteration, gloomy bear, wanting a 2dimensional diamond tattoo

had it on the PS2 when I was little, used to play it all the time.
Recently bought it on Steam and have already clocked 100 hours.
This was one of the games that came with my Sony Vaio desktop from 2004. Every day I'd come home from middle school and spend hours playing that game…against the AI. I think because it was technically supposed to be a demo it couldn't hook up to the internet. And tbh that didn't matter as my parents hated me being on the internet because they could never use the phone.
Sometimes my best friend would come over and we'd voice record ourselves messing around and trying to beat impossible situations against the computer. Like 1v7 on the hardest setting.
If I didn't have such a rundown macbook I'd play the shit out of that game.
baguette fag here.
Prove It ! was badly subbed in French and was aired almost everyday on the kids channel Gulli and I loved it. But even when looking for it in English, I can't find anything ? It's apparently british, has anyone watched it in their own country ? https://youtu.be/ufA2iaboAxA
the French show opening
samefag but holy shit the Pingu VHS !
ngl I laugh a lot while watching Pingu even now bc of all the weird ass sound design and noises by the characters like, so much effort was put into the noises, also when pingu gets stupidly deformed and his expressions change it always makes me smile even if I watched the episodes 100 times
also kinda ot but is anyone else confused at all the sound changes ? I remember finding episodes on YT and the sounds were totally different from the VHS audio, found it kinda weird
shit this one op always takes me back, i didn't even like bleach after like the first 40 episodes haha
also in a similarly embarrassing vein, all of the naruto ops get me so pumped lol
Damn anon are you me lmao
My dad had this old computer and this was one of the only games that ran on it.
I remember installing a bunch of demo games off burnt CDs too. Among them was Arcade america which seriously strikes up nostalgia into me big time.

My fucking god. I for whatever reason recently went back to listening to a few of the more funny/silly songs that were made then and it brought me back to being a brand new weeb in high school. I use to be one of THOSE otakus and watching on nico douga for superiority points.

Honest to God, I wish there was a friend-making app based solely on weebshit. As an adult everything else seems so bland now, but clinging to my old hobbies is what keeps me from wanting to kill myself these days. I miss going to cons, buying weeby merch and hanging out with my friends and binge watching anime.

Same, anon. Why is it so hard to make friends when you're an "adult"?
Thats great, anon! I don't go to 4chon anymore though, and I'd really rather not. I was never a cosplayer, just a congoing weeb, and I feel like I just don't fit in there anymore. Hence the desire for an app, or hell, even an anime cluv type pf thread here on /ot/. >>32119
Because after school and college you run into less people organically, and those you do meet usually aren't around for long unless they're coworkers.
I work in a restaurant aimed at a younger demographic and my coworkers all like anime to a degree, but none of them are really weebs like me. Not that I'm a screeching Pocky addict or anything, but I like to get a little more into my animes and Japan aesthetic than I know they would. Like, they'll chat with me about what series they're watching, but they also mostly have kids and other hobbies they like more, so it's not like I could get a group together to go shopping for merch or to throw anime watching pizza parties with. Y'know, stuff I dreamed of doing as a kid/teen with the friends I never had.
Sage for childish but idc, I didn't enjoy my childhood and now that my time and money are mine I crave that sort of friendship and belonging.

Being optimistic, looking forward to my future, not being constantly worried about things I have to do as an adult, not feeling lonely and hating people at same time, the feeling of taking a warm shower and going to bed and falling asleep easily, waking up refreshed and enjoying my day without feeling tired all the time, receiving gifts from people who care about me, calling a friend just to chat about anything, renting a movie with said friend and making a bucket of popcorn, sleepovers, not caring about several flaws on my body and face and knowing very well any single flaw I have makes my value decrease to society, reading a new book or game and being excited to try it, many other things that go away after you grow up and realize life is bleak and you will die at some point so very few things matter if none.

I'm desperate to get back what little time I spent with my weeb friend (just the one) as a kid, playing PS1 JRPGs and watching anime rented from the local mom & pop video store. All while ignoring the fact that she eventually dumped me, ghosted me, and I never knew what I did wrong.
File: 1530687274723.gif (42.74 KB, 294x200, 1466979224055.gif)
The things that make me feel nostalgic the most are anime, manga and video games I played when I was younger. Until the 2010s, then it's not really nostalgia anymore and I feel like I'm not really enjoying watching weebshit now compared to before, except for a few stuff like JJBA, Gintama and things aimed at fujoshi. So these days I'm trying to watch things I wanted to watch but couldn't like Code Geass, Gurren Lagann or anime I couldn't fully watch because I missed half the episodes on TV and other things. There's also Harry Potter from before the series of volumes was completed, Polly Pockets, Tamagochi, flash dressing games online on the family computer, visual kei, sitcoms like the Nanny, Malcolm in the middle, my wife and kids, and the silly ads that were trying to be "radical". And for Frenchfags here there's also Mobiclic and Adibou from when I was in primary school.
Actually I missed on a bunch of things I wanted to play, watch or read as a teenager or a kid so I'm thinking about catching up. I never had a PS1 or a PS2 and I wanted to play Tomb Raider and Resident Evil and the PS1 FF games as a kid because my cousin did, so I think I'll try to play them on my PSVita someday.>>32091>mfw I read Nana in middle school because I borrowed all the volumes from the library, wanted to move out and have a bff who could be my flatmate. >mfw now I'm older than the protagonists and the manga is still not over because of Yazawa's shitty health>>32094
Same, I loved Gwen Stefani and my favorite was Wind it Up. I also remember the Beyoncé songs that came out before and soon after that and I used to watch the MVs all the time on TV. Same with Fall Out Boy, Christina Aguillera, Missy Elliot, Avril Lavigne, Britney Spears, etc. So basically a bunch of pop songs. Everytime I went abroad to visit my family I couldn't watch anything else anyway because I couldn't understand the language.

Yes I remember my mom giving me 4 euros every week to by Witch Mag on my way back from school. Now that I think about it most characters were annoying as fuck, I only liked Elyon because she was the mean one, kek.
Fucking loved witch. All issues are translated on the net. Google mooncloud witch if you feel like it.
The series went seriously downhill in the last 100 or so issues and was quietly put to rest.
Oh fuck, I loved Witch when it came out in Minnie Mag. But I remember thinking it was lame that Minnie Mag became Witch Mag, although I still loved Witch when it happened. Then either the series became boring after a while, or I grew up too much for it.
And yeah, the characters were annoying, especially Cornelia IMO, but she was my friends' favorite because she was blonde kek.
My favorites of the main crew were Irma and Hay Lin, but I didn't like Will because I thought she was too much of a boring Miss Perfect. Taranee was just…there.

winx >> witch
they were actually pretty much the same show but i will fight to deaht over this because i collected winx dolls when i was growing up and wanted to be Stacy Stella. my stella dolls made my barbies looked FAT.>>32148
>did anyone else used to get into fights with friends over witch vs winx
omg yes it was so controversial! i watched both tbh. witch had better story but winx had skinny dolls so i was torn.
No one i knew was into witch and most kids made fun of me cuz of it but it got me really into drawing >>32151
Did it ever get a proper ending? I remeber seeing it somewhere online it was still going but that was years ago
>>32143>the characters were annoying, especially Cornelia>My favorites of the main crew were Irma and Hay Lin, etc.
We have the exact same opinions on that.>>32148
I didn't have these fights because my sisters and I agreed that Witch was better was Winx. I really didn't like the artstyle for Winx and the French dub was an abomination. I actually didn't really watch Witch, I only read it, hoping there would be a cartoon someday and when it happened I just didn't watch it for no reason in particular.
Speaking of cartoons, I really liked Totally Spies and Martin Mystère (whatever the name is in other languages). Also fun fact, the character designer of both shows made a "french manga" titled Pink Diary when I was in middle school and everyone was expecting something similar because they advertised it as "by that one girl who worked on Totally Spies and Martin Mystère" and it turned out to be a really depressing and melodramatic shojo manga.

Winx came into my country a few years after the initial W.I.T.C.H. hype went down and it seemed to be popular with younger kids anyway, so we never even compared the two. I never liked witch myself because it seemed too basic/boring in a way, but winx was definitely my guilty pleasure. The flashy costumes introduced in the 3rd season caught my eye and I started to become invested in the show as the overall production quality went up and the art style/character designs improved. Bloom was a bland as fuck main character but to be fair she wasn't a complete mary sue, just not really leaving an impression. I wish the villains made more sense than just "I'm taking over the world" but then again it's a show for kids so you can't expect too much complexity. The characters were mostly enjoyable and Flora was my favourite. And she chose the best boy
But when it comes down to shallow things, I always thought witch costumes were ugly as shit. As for winx, their first costumes were also fashion disasters but they got a lot better as the time went on whereas witch just kept those ridiculous clown stockings on.

holy shit thank you anon
I always wanted to read the Japanese manga version of WITCH. I've looked for yeaaarssss
hah if you're talking about the comics it was the opposite to me. WINX (both tv and comic version) always looked shitty whereas the WITCH comic wasn't great
but at least it wasn't as ugly and anorexic as WINX.
Never enjoyed the WITCH TV cartoons though. I was so hyped up when it came out but I lost all interest after the first episode since the art the ugly and the plot was all messed up.
Agree, though I enjoyed the Nerissa saga. Don't get me started about the terrible episodes in the middle of them, with shitty art and the Auramer monster, evil Luba and Cornelia being more bitchy than ever. >>32152>>32153
Yes, there is an ending, it just sucks. The last comic is a recap of some of the past adventures. Only good thing is that it ends with the first page of the first issue.
Before it there are a few sucky one-shot episodes about girls. >>32158
What, winx had a terrible art style. Witch the comic was great till the original artists got the boot. Later on it was mostly good. Winx looks so trashy (though I enjoyed it). I hated how there occasionally were scenes that seemed inspired by hentais (girls tied by tentacles). The Winx comic had even worse style. The most exceptional thing about it is that it had A Very Special Date Rape Drug episode with Bloom almost falling victim

With the exception of some twitter spergs I kind of like that anime is becoming passe because I’m encountering less batshit people into it compared to the last decade. I was surprised a few days ago at work because someone came in with an anime shirt and we had a completely level-headed conversation about the series and gave each other show recommendations. Or maybe it was just because we were both older fans instead of awkward teenagers>>32148
Yesss, one of my friends adored Winx but I was more into Witch and Totally Spies. I thought Winx looked kind of funny with the animation effects

Your ship is wrong
Oh man I was subscribed to Minnie/Witch mag.
I remember once they gave away the Kandrakar heart as a freebie and I was so stoked.
I'm sad I lost it because it was only hanging on a simple thread, I wish I could find it somewhere just for memory sake.
I also really liked when they'd publish short comics by amateurs, it was honestly really cool and some of them had a super neat style.
I regret giving it all away when I entered middle school because I thought it was then too childish for me. I'm an idiot. >>32146
Same, the quality went to shit so fast after a while. I remember after one issue they even published a fan letter saying the last issue was plain horrendeous, it looked like a scratcher did it.
I vaguely remember that another comic artist went to their HQ in Italy and said there were a bunch of comic artists and they'd swap sketching/inking/coloring because they had to produce so many issues in a short amount of time.
Fuuuuck I was just scrolling the page and nostalgia got triggered
hard. I had completely forgotten about this game, but as soon as I saw the picture I knew what it was. I want to look it up and try playing it again but I know the magic will be gone.

I fucking miss 90's shoujo manga. I have plans of binging all the CLAMP stuff (not a fan of their new work like Tsubasa, XXXholic and the like) as well as Angel Sanctuary and Sailor Moon.
I'm especially excited for X/1999, which is one of my faves. I plan to finally buy all the volumes. I've wanted to have the whole series for years and reading on computer is not very comfortable.

Morbegs, Zig and Zag, Socky the sock monster, Yummee, Sattitude, Disney Club with Mary, Digby Chix, Creature Feature, Dustin's Daily News and Martin Duck, Cruinneas
Some more stuff that really gets the nostalgia rolling for me:
Rosie and Jim, The Magic Roundabout, Mike Lu & Og, Recess, those home chemist/scientist sets, collecting film merchandise when your parents went to texaco garages (I remember getting lilo and stitch stuff), Looney Tunes figures in cereal, fur real friends and other robot pets, those huge artist set boxes with markers and pencils and erasers etc, Sabrina's Secrets (local shops stopped selling it after issue 12 and I was so sad), pogs, B*Witched, Impulse and So… body sprays, Kiss and Mizz magazine (mam hated them so I used buy them on the sly), Groovy Chick merch, I could be here all day.

The Fox Kids Digimon website. I can clearly remember hearing the sound effects scrolling through the side bar like it was yesterday.

i know what you mean about vividly remembering sound effects. i still remember how every single one of the buttons on kid pix sounded (and the words to the intro screen theme song).
I talked about some of the music I used to listen back in primary school and middle school and now I'm listening to Sean Paul, Missy Elliot, the Pussycat Dolls and Alliyah non-stop.>>32177
I never got the freebies because I got all the magazines I had second-hand, I was always so salty that I never got anything.>>32168>>32171
I used to watch these shows after school but I don't remember anything about them, except for Charmed when at some point one of the sisters left or died and got replaced by another character.>>32183
If you find good scans for Angel Sanctuary send us a link please, I wanted to read it but I couldn't find them back them except in comics shop. And I also always wanted to read X1999 but I was waiting for the series to be completed back then before getting the volumes. I still don't own any volumes to this day because they're not printed anymore. A really obscure one is Mirai no Utena, I loved it, it's by the author of Please Save my Earth which is a bit more well-known.

I feel shitty because I destroyed the fuck out of my Sailor Moon dolls, and I had the main five plus tuxedo mask. For some reason I cut Mercury's hair down to the nubs and then melted her on a lamp.
I think the only one that was spared was Sailor Jupiter because she was my favorite. But either way, I'm sure they're all rotting in a landfill someplace. Feels bad.

When I was a kid I had the 12inch dolls of Sailor Moon, Jupiter, and Mercury (a Japanese one), and the 6inch dolls of Sailor Moon, Princess Serenity, Chibi Moon, Mars, and Neptune.
But when my mom and I moved when I turned ten and 11, she made me throw them all in the dumpster… Along with some other Sailor Moon stuff and dolls and toys from that era. She told me if I really cared about them I would have taken care of them (??), but with the exception of accidentally detaching Jupiter's leg, they were still in good condition.
I wish she had kept them for me, or at least sold or donated them. It sucks knowing all those precious memories went to waste. Plus these dolls are expensive now!
Last year I found a Sailor Moon and Mars doll sold together in their boxes for $36 on Ebay and bought them right away. They are currently sitting on my display shelf. I'm glad they're back, but it's not the same :(

Seeing Tokio Hotel mentioned in the Cute boys thread gave me a huge burst of nostalgia.
A short while ago I showed my little sister my yearbook and then she asked why all of us wore "wide" pants, had bangs and did peace signs. She's just 9 years younger, but already lives in a completely different world.
I feel like todays beauty standards are taking a huge toll on girls and young womens confidence. Simply being slim was easier to achieve then having a tiny waist paired with a giant ass. I can't say for sure whether Myspace was a thing in Europe, but most people here certainly didn't dress as exteme as Pars Hilton and co. Just bootlegged jeans, converse and some tight fitting shirt, nothing cropped or high waisted.(Imo the standards for men also changed to the negative, beards just aren't attractive at all…) Not knowing shit about what's heathy and or not, not worrying about skin care and premature aging was so nice.
Back then the only thing I did on my dads computer was preparing things for school or playing The Sims. Nowadays I spend every single minute on the internet. Music was also harder to come by, buying CDs felt like you appreciated it more. Since I didn't have internet access and only a shitty phone I spent so much more time outside. My brother and I stayed out all day, sitting in our snow "castle" until it was dark and our mum called us to come inside. I can't even remember the last time I went sledging or ice skating…
For anybody who's German as well, I remember reading Bravo magazine made us feel 'so cool' lol
I also miss when MTV actually broadcast music by bands and some nice tv shows; only weird shit and pop/rap are shown nowdays.
As a kid getting sweets, snacks, fast food or coke was so rare and now that I can get it whenever I want it no longer feels special at all.
Writing emojis as "XD" instead of being able to choose between an eggplant and whatnot…
I miss simply being much more carefree not anxious and depressed>>32141
Omg, I completely forgot about this lol The brown haired one was my fave.
This reminds me of how much I loved Barbie and her movies. My little borther always played with me. We also had a playmobil castle and dressed up as knights ourselves and "fought" with wooden swords. >>32202
Sad thing is, back then I still had friends and we did sleepovers (just not as nicely as in this series), but now they're all gone.
Watching TV in general felt so much more special to me, since the time I was allowed to do so was very limited and the shows back then seemed to be so much more wholesome than the newer ones, always only about friendship instead of love.
The thing I regret the most is that I didn't enjoy or appreciate my childhood and early teenage years more. I should have tried harder to keep my friends, to be popular, then I wouldn't have been seen as weird and wouldn't have been so lonely in my last years of high schol and now. But I also should have stood up more for myself and shouldn't have allowed others to treat my like a doormat.
I'm not German but where I grew up Greece
I got Bravo from some relatives from another Balkan country, and we also had the Viva channel on cable. I used to scan the TV guide thing for any mention of Tokio Hotel and other "cool" bands, I remember my friend really liked Killerpilze. I even wanted to go see them live so I started studying German, though I never went far because the weird genders fucked me up.
I remember sitting outside in 42 degree heat reading Bravo and waiting for my friend to wake up so we could go to the beach and read it together (since she couldn't read it on her own, and I had to translate).
I'm German and I loved MTV and VIVA! Lol I remember that I was a fan of US 5 and read everything about them in Bravo.
Also the Dr Sommer stuff and the naked girls and boys were really interesting for me. I wanted to have my period so bad.
I would make stories up that I already had a boyfriend and that we kissed with tongue lmao.
Do you remember the super bleached jeans with 'juicy' on the ass? Or the fake blonde hair with black underneath? Ratty extensions were also hot shit back in the days.
I will never ever wear a bootleg jeans again.
Sorry I'm high lol
>>32216> I can't say for sure whether Myspace was a thing in Europe
In France we had skyblog but it's not the same. Mention this to young adults and if they get embarrassed they most likely had a blog on this platform.
>ince I didn't have internet access and only a shitty phone I spent so much more time outside.
Actually I'm glad the internet became a thing when I was a kid because I wasn't allowed to go out and play with friends as a kid and as a teenager so it helped me not being bored to death at home, since there wasn't much to do. All of my good memories from back then are related to the internet, weeb shit or tv because of that.
Damn you guys are giving me nostalgia flashbacks. Vid related is for the German anons that remember it too. I can't believe the original video is still on youtube. >>32216
I was on the Anti-Tokio Hotel train. There was a flamboyant gay guy in my school that was a huge fan and (succesfully) tried to look like Bill Kaulitz. Me and my friends hated him because he was a little shit stirrer, so I just hated Tokio Hotel too.
Any German farmers remember that leave Tokio Hotel alone
video by that teenage girl? It went viral and she got a ton of shit from people. I think her name was Angie. Poor girl even followed up with a video where she renounced her Tokio Hotel fan status and looked like she was being held at gunpoint. >>32218>>32219
Lmao I felt so rebellious
as a preteen when I watched viva and mtv and read my Bravo. I really thought the fotostories were an accurate depiction of teenage life and I couldn't wait.
And wow, Killerpilze. That's a name I haven't heard in a long time. Was anyone here into LaFee? She seemed so badass and I wanted a friend like her.
I know, but it's difficult…>>32221
I was also an anti lol Didn't know that video, lord…
There was this one girl at school who always drew LaFee's signature sign onto her face, every single day!

DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THIS SHOW.
Honestly growing up in a dysfunctional family that was struggling financially was something I dealt with and it was so uplifting to see how it was portrayed in MitM. They yelled and they argued and sometimes they were jerks but they loved each other because they were family and even though they had their issues with money, they were in it together.
i was literally just about to post malcolm in the middle, wtf?
love this show so much, always loved it as a kid too. i had the BIGGEST crush on francis lmao

mitm was so overrated. get on my level
i don't know why this show wasn't more popular. it was and still is easily the best family comedy around, tbh. the writing was excellent and they tackled issues controversial issues pretty liberally and with tact, esp for the time. i still watch it all of the time bc it's just so cozy

are there any other eurofags here who read these books? these were my favourite when i was about 7-11. theyre about this girl called penny, her dad is a vet and she really loved animals. each book was an unconnected different story.
i remember some wild shit happening, e.g. penny going to the arctic to visit her grandparents and getting kidnapped by a seal murdering (?) gang, there was also one where she got hit by a car, became paralysed and someone kidnapped her dogs at the same time, lets not forget the one where she stole a pig from a farm, and her boyfriend was introduced in one of the early books and the plot was that he was trying to steal a dolphin.

I miss Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side! This game was way ahead of its time and is the best otome I've ever played out of hundreds. The combination of strategy, touch feature, the guys voice your name (almost all otome still don't have this feature), dressing up, and classic visual novel response options. I freaking love this. And besides, the early 2000s japanese aesthetic is just comfy. This game is so lighthearted and always cheered me up.>>32233

It's literally just an archive of the music/commercials played on the radio in k-marts back in the 90's. There's even "don't smoke in the store" adverts. Instant 90's kid flashbacks to eating a hot n ready from little sneezers with a giant blue icee, then going back to school shopping. Ah, memories…

Keeping my fingers crossed so that you will find her for a good price someday!>>32261
Not everybody is from USA. It's true you can buy HP chocolate frogs nowadays too tho the design is slightly different.
I am so curious about the Spice Girls chocolate tho…
They had a bubblegum inside, didn't they? I still remember the taste.
I never got the Baby Spice one, she was my favorite.

I had this magazine! These types of magazines that centered around one franchise or character were always kept on the top shelf and cost an arm and a leg. I'd only ever be able to buy the first issues because they were discounted and it was all I could afford with my meager pocket money. I remember this one really well because it was probably the last one i ever bought. I think I was about 11 or 12. I loved the free nail art pen and box. Had them for years. I used the nail art pen in a bunch of diys as a teen.
I read mizz and kiss as well (and bliss, sugar, shout, j17, cosmo girl, sneak, and probably tons more)

I had this one. I still remember how badly I wanted a Barbie mermaid with baby twins but my dad got me this one, despite wanting Barbie herself (this one is her friend).
Even though I had a collection of Barbies, she became my favorite and I remember her “being with me” during some hard times of my childhood.
I regret giving her away so much, along with veterinary Barbie my late grandparents were saving a lot to buy for me during war times when we barey had anything.

This shit, bitches
I played Jumpstart Spanish when I was a kid and hid every time the introduction played because the Spanish song sung at the beginning scared me.
Played a bunch of Jumpstart 3rd grade, really liked it, but I never tried any other of the games.

holy fuck yes. I had petz dogz. I was too afraid of the haunted mansion (when the game music would start I would cry and run away) so I’d make my dad play it
thanks for posting this anon I completely forgot how many hours I wasted playing this crap
I had the pink hair one!!! I loved that damn doll…
My fav was the pregnant Midge, Barbie's redhead friend who has this nice tan skin.
I also had the swan lake one, a very old Rapunzel one with a weird mechanical crown that could tie her long hair up.
And omg there was a dancer themed Barbie with lamé clothing with weird rubber "skin" with wire under the limbs like a rig. You could bend her all grossly.

YES BITCH I had almost every Edmark educational game. Love these games. I had a sandbox set up to be able to run these old games on my win7 a few years ago. Was so worth going back to play the games bc my old memories were fully refreshed. It's nice to have them less fuzzy in my mind.
JazzJackrabbit 2 was also mentioned, love it.
I loved KidPix and A to Zap as well, the latter is an alphabet-based mini game situation similar to your pic related.
There was also Thinking Things series. I remember one of them had you making international sales to random animals and stuff, things got complicated as you moved up lol.
There was also Living Books which was a point and click style storybook game. Very fun and played almost all of those as well.
My obscure contribution is… POLDY, motherfuckers. This was a massive set of books on all sorts of early learning topics complete with fully voice acted cassette tapes and other materials like a cool memory game.
Also there are a few educational games I have never managed to find the names of, from my childhood:
>One of them had a watercolor-like color scheme and had a minigame about putting frames of a butterfly going through metamorphosis in order. It also had a minigame about dressing for the weather. Maybe classical music in the background. That's all I've got on that one.
>Point and Click style game with a shot of a barn and I think another shot of… an airplane? Fuck. So fuzzy.

I got so much mileage out of this game. It was a dancing game that accompanied that hipster series of Barbies. You could put this song in your cd player and listen to the songs, too…my 9 year old self they were the pinnacle of pop music.

this was so British but I played those games to death

It was like a subscription thing, that we never signed up for but you could keep the copies they sent you. I read them back to front dozens of times because we didn't really have much books at home.
anon maybe you can help me. i've been trying for years to remember a game i played, my memories of it are so fuzzy but i really am dying to remember it.
from what i remember: it's set in a cave like area, there's some ~crazy scientist~ main dude, you basically play mini games, there's something about keys. i think it was science related but it could've been math or a combo of both. this is literally all i remember lol but i can't stop thinking about it.

Me and my group of 4 friends were obsessed with the movie/books. We were all going to be on vacation for most of the summer so we decided to do a "sisterhood of the traveling notebook" since this was before texting was widespread and not all of us had cellphones to communicate. So we sent a composition journal (pic related lol) around and would write entries and notes and draw pictures and whatnot and send it to the next girl. It was very wholesome. I remember I ended up with it at the end, I wonder if my mom still has in a memory box somewhere.

I fucking love this woman's books (even if Love lessons was fucked up and should never been written).
I see she wrote a book about adult Tracy Beaker as a mum and I am lowkey interested, even though she was never my fave. I fucking love Illustrated Mom, Vicky Angel, Lola Rose, etc. The Sapphire Battersea series is also great.
File: 1554356773158.jpg (75.86 KB, 800x450, NTI0MjVjNTRmZSMvZXA5em1nNGNtcU…)
Oh I loved those books, iirc my fav was Illustrated Mum. Or at least that's the one I remember most clearly. What was Love Lessons about? I don't think I read that one.
These were my favourite books as a… tween I think I must have been? I re-read some of the books recently and they're still funny and I'm still jealous of the friendships in it.
I will borrow the description from a 'Most distressing Jacqueline Wilson books" listicle:
"Now we come to think of it, Love Lessons was extremely problematic
. (But it was also great).
The book centres on a 14-year-old girl called Prudence, who is home-schooled because of her horrid father's distrust of mainstream education.
But after he has a stroke, she's sent to the local public school. Here, she starts up a very worrying relationship with a pervy art teacher called Mr Raxberrry (or 'Rax').
To cut a long story short, they end up snogging in a car, she tells him he loves him, someone from the school overhears, and Prue gets packed off for another school while weirdo Rax LITERALLY GETS TO KEEP HIS JOB".
So I guess you can say the topic of the book is child grooming, but it's written from the perspective of the enamored protagonist and it never feels like the art teacher is condemned for 'falling in love' with his student. The book is great as always, but also really problematic
for that reason. Even if it was not meant to portray the predatory relationship in a positive light, a young girl reading this will probably not get this and relate to the protagonist and feel angry at the world tearing her and her groomer apart.

Since we're posting books, I still have my original collection of The Clique series and I've actually been rereading them for the dozenth time lately and they make me realize more and more how much I turned into a Massie. The movie wasn't even bad either but it was only based on the first book, which is really far from being the best one. I could rant all day about these.

Pizza Hut used to have some cool kids' products in 90s. I had Beauty and the Beast hand puppets from there and actually unearthed some unopened Aladdin game from there. I think I remember they had Casper puppets too, that glowed in the dark.
Burger King had gold pokemon cards.
McDonald's had Hercules plates and miniature Barbies (I had several). I collected a lot of their Lion King toys too. I think McDonald's also had mini beanie babies for a while and I LOVED that set.
Why don't the fast food chains have any good toys anymore?
File: 1554360787143.jpg (112.72 KB, 516x500, download.jpg)
I still have these at my parents' house! I want to read them again now that I can look at them from a different perspective. I remember rooting for Prue and wanting her to be with the teacher and wishing I was a ghost who could change their appearance at will, yikes (though the ghost thing still sounds appealing)
MY BITCHES!! God I used to abuse those animals with the "love perfume" and skip time and play ridiculous music from the music box for hours on end to try to get them to make kittens or puppies. Also I realised you could cheat the rock paper scissors mini game by continuously clicking an icon then clicking whatever he shower at the last minute. Remember when you put the gift box away and left the lid out and it would be there forever? Ffs
Adding to this, Theme Park World, Theme Hospital and Zoo Tycoon
I genuinely learned so much from zoo tycoon, that game was full of information on animals and plants

This is the very first Rainbow Fairy book I read as a kid, and I’m pretty sure the woman is still writing these
Do middle grade fiction authors ever actually retire lmao
I loved these so much! Kids still seem to love them now.
Those books are written by a team of ghost writers that follow a formula and "Daisy Meadows" isn't a real person, sadly. I wrote to her as a kid and they sent me a bunch of free gifts and a letter. When I got older and found out she wasn't real I was both salty and endeared that they still wrote back lol
Yes! It's so wonderfully 90's and heartwarming and I love it. You can probably torrent it, or it's on Amazon Prime and Hulu.
Apparently, Netflix is making an Original series so prepare to have that shit fucking decimated by forceful insertion of modern memes.

Is the Vocaloid community still a thing? I also remember the time when I was 12 years old and got into anime and manga through One Piece and Vocaloid. I was a true weeaboo too, with the dirt, sweat and awkwardness included. I was disgusting smh.
However, I think the Vocaloid community is not as huge as before?? I know we have a Vocaloid producer thread, but it seems the fandom has been dying since 2015 maybe?? Ha, I miss the old summer days, downloading shitty quality japanese songs on my old MP3 and browsing internet forums lol.
I feel that so much lol. Honestly I still go back and listen to those shitty vocaloid songs that were tuned very poorly, but I think back in the day it was way harder to tune them, idk. I could just be talking out of my ass.
The thing that really got me recently was hearing that Wowaka died. I loved listening to world's end dancehall and rolling girl as a kid, and recently I found out he had a band so I was looking forward to more of his music.

I remember the TV adverts for this and being so desperate for those trading cards
Sugar really was all about sex. I remember once my dad confiscated it to screen it and nearly didn't give it back because of all the sex advice and a scandalous photo of Scary Spice's nipslip. But then I'm sure the same issue also had a childish collage of celebrities caught in motion alleging they were "caught parping", or some other weird madeup word for farting, with cartoon sound effect bubbles. Reading this back just sounds like a DeviantArt fetish art deep dive though, so maybe that was just a fever dream induced by chicken pox and Calpol.
Another issue I remember had a double page article about a girl whose guy friend assaulted her at a sleepover, she had pretended to be asleep out of shock but later confronted him and cut him out of her life. Interestingly I don't remember there being any victim
blaming for her reaction or choice to share a bed with a guy which was probably a very modern way to write that in the 90s, I hope the message got through to at least one girl somewhere. >>32134>>32410

Legend of the Seeker is VERY nostalgic to me.
It came on the air when I was 14 and sadly cancelled after 2 seasons but gives me so many feels. I love that cheesy fantasy type show and would kill to have this show revived.. I don't want to read the books it's based on because I feel like it would ruin my feelings about the show.
I also literally watched the entire series as well. Always felt weird for watching it in my mid to late 20s though. Was looking forward to a new season but things just ended.>>42432
