There wasn't an official "Oregon Trail Day"...it just that most schools in America set aside time to play the game Oregon Trail...I remember playing it in 5th grade during our computer class

Arbor Day is the day they plant trees and talk about conservation...the blue jean pencils were made from recycled denim

You guys didn't have Trappers?? Those were like a staple of elementary school back in 3rd & 4th grade, and even up through middle school :P

Gak was the gooey stuff from Nickelodeon that came in a container, they have a commercial of it on RetroJunk.com

The whole acid washed jeans and flourescent shirt thing was just an early 90s trend

Last year I had a friend who was taking an American History class. He had to write a paper on something, I suggested he play Oregon Trail and write his paper on it. He decided to go ahead and do it, playing a newer version of the game than the one we all know and love (crappy graphics, those damned rabbits that you can never shoot whilst hunting). As a way to thank me for giving him the idea, he named one of the characters David, and he died about a month into the trip. He got an A on the paper, which was pretty much just a 13 page, play-by-play of the game. It took him a while to write it because he kept having everyone die in the game.

I always ended up with some numbskull on the party that would always get snakebites or get lost...I always wondered why they never made a "drop" feature members of your party, since you could dump everything else!

I used to shoot like 3000 pounds of buffalo but only be able to carry 300 back. :P

I was always the cheapskate. I never took the toll road or hired an Indian guide...so half the time I would end up hitting rocks or having my raft overturn.

I remember when it was WORTH IT to wake up for Saturday morning cartoons.

Al the great stuff like Transformers, animated Batman, etc.

Then came that Pokemon show and then came Digimon and then Yu-Gi-Oh and everything went straight to hell.

oh man I dont even want to go into details on how i had to get stitches from a slip n slide. I really showed those kids how its done.

Alot of this stuff i havent even heard of since when i was around in the 90's i never payed attention to pop culture.

Lawn Darts anyone? I wonder if my set is worth anything. What i great concept. Get hammered then try to throw metal spikes into a ring. So many people had to be rushed to the hospital because of those.

Haha I remember most of those. My mom has a pair of old LA Gear sneakers. I never knew they were big or popular. They look like crap. I never had a pair of rollerblades though and I have tried them. Lets just say that there is a reason I never had them lol. I remember boom-boxes. I never had one though, the first one I got was a CD player in 2000 lol. I missed a whole decade of music. BTW, you know you were a 90s kid if you listened to the boy bands or the Hamsterdance haha.

SOme of the styling and phrases do date back into the 80's, even earlier like Hudson said. Stonewashed jeans 70's, what did you call them acid washed? that began in 80's, LA Gear, Dude is actually kind of old, Awsome, Sick, Twisted, boom boxes I had one of the early ones in 76 Panasonic, it was small.

The cartoons and games. I watched most of them with my daughter though. The shows, seen them all too.

Its kinda cool really, there was less generation gap between us 70's brats and our 80/90's children than we had with our parents. Now today its getting bad again, worse really.

I remember the Samurai Pizza Cats!! And Beetle Borgs too! No clue on VR Troopers...

Who here remembers Mr. Wizard? Count Duckula? Maya The Bee? The Noozles? Adventures of the Little Koala? The Littl' Bits?

Those are some early 90s Nick shows I remember as a small child...
