21 toys all Irish girls who grew up in the 90s dreamed of getting

Oh those were the days.

WITH THE TOY show excitement in full blast, take a look back on the days when all you wanted was a deadly toy.

1. Like sky dancers

2. The Best Friends Club secret diary

Only your best friend could have the key and see all your top secret scandal.

3. Polly pockets

Polly Pocket was all the rage. She could live in your pocket! You’d love her until that faithful day when the ink on her face faded off and she was just a tiny ball marble with clothes on.

4. Sylvanian families

Every year. Every damn year. You’d ask your mam for Sylvanian families, even the baby ones, but no. Nothing. More shite off-brand dolls. Thanks a lot, mam.

5. Furby

They were brilliant, until you became inexplicably terrified by them and their constant wailing.

6. Magic mitt

Remember bringing this into school and being queen for the day, until the teacher confiscated it? Those were the days.

7. Dream phone

It was so glam, the kinda thing you found in your best friend’s older sister’s room and dreamed you could one day play with.

8. Mr Frosty

PLEASE CAN WE HAVE A MR FROSTY MAM. HE MAKES SLUSH PUPPIES.

- You, consistently, through the year.

You first learned the harsh reality that everything will eventually let you down when you realised Mr Frosty was a pile of shite and did NOT make drinks slushy at all.

9. Pogs

What did they do? Who knows? But they looked pretty.

SHE ATE THE FECKING CHERRIES LADS. No explanation needed.

11. Baby born

No 90s girl could ever get the theme song out of her head.

Baaaaby, born baby BORN!

Can we ever recreate the pure elation of coming down the stairs on Christmas morning to be met with this? Never.

12. This Fischer Price Doll House

The actual dream. A lil toy house because you are growing up in an era that will never let you buy a real one.

13. Talkboy or talkgirl

One hundred percent of kids used this to make their own radio show.

14. Puppy in my Pocket

OK, these were great. Our only issue was with the ones who were sitting down. You cannot make a sitting down dog run.

15. Poo-chi, in pink of course

OK, they didn’t do a lot, but it was the height of technology back in the day.

16. Cupcake dolls

They turned into cupcakes! No 90s girl could possibly ever forget how they smelled. A mix between vanilla and plastic. Luscious.

17. Boyzone dolls

DON’T LOVE ME FOR FUN, GIRL. LET ME BE THE ONE GIRL.

* Hugs Ronan doll tight*

18. Easy bake oven

Trying to make cakes with a light bulb was just child cruelty.

19. Fashion wheel

You needed this to foster your dreams of becoming a high profile fashion designer. Pity NCAD didn’t except crayon shadings in your portfolio.

20. Doll’s head

To try your fab hairdressing on, of course.

21. An art studio set

This was an absolute must-have so you could be the most popular girl in school. Will cute Sean ask for a loan of your blue and bring it back all dried out? Hopefully.
