15 Toys and Games That Every 90s Girl Remembers

Being a girl in the 90s meant playing with some of the best toys that Little Tikes and Mattel could put out.

With endless commercials playing on YTV you couldn't help but get excited and find new techniques to beg your parents for the next hottest gift.

Whether you loved being outside or getting creative indoors, or couldn't get enough dolls and stuffed toys, there was a memorable 90s toy for everyone.

Polly Pocket

Sure Polly and her friends aren't extinct after their premiere in the 90s but they just aren't the same. These compact playsets were a staple for every 90s girl! It seemed like our parents were always getting mad at us for leaving these little choking hazards around the house.

Doodle Bear

"Put it in the washing machine and it comes out nice and clean..."

The jingle still rings in my head more than 20 years later. Now that's great advertising of the 90s. We all loved to doodle on this fluffy friend and mom loved how easy he was to clean!

Who remembers the commercial?

Puppy Surprise

We all loved surprises in the 90s! There is an entire generation of kids that believed babies came out of Velcro stomachs into their teens. How many puppies did you get in your Puppy Surprise?

My Little Pony

What 90s girl doesn't remember My Little Pony? Brushing the tangles out of your My Little Pony's tail was a past time we all fondly remember. What color was your My Little Pony doll?

The Babysitter's Club Mystery Game

After you finished reading all the books, it was only natural to want to play the game! Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia, Stacey, Dawn, Jessi and Mallory are back and ready for another adventure.

Remember how we stored our secrets and one of the hottest dolls of the 90s on the next page.

The world changed when electronic toys were introduced to us in the 90s.

Not only could we read our horoscope and use a calendar, but we should share our innermost thoughts under a password thanks to Tiger's hot toy.

Being a 90s girl also meant so many cool dolls.

While they may look weird (and possibly a bit creepy) now, these were new and top of the line then.

Dear Diary

My best kept secrets were always in my Dear Diary. When you didn't trust your locked journal you turned to this trusty friend. With a password lock, you could comfortably write your secret crushes name a dozen times and never worry about someone ratting you out!

Baby All Gone

I definitely had a nostalgia attack when I remembered my Baby All Gone doll! Like a real baby, this doll ate cherries form a jar and drank formula from her bottle. How she did it, still perplexes me. I used to feed my baby when my mom took care of my little sister. Fond memories for this toy!

Do you remember the magic?

Fashion Plates

Did you go through a fashion designer stage? I think most of us did. For those of us who weren't blessed with the ability to draw freehand, there were Fashion Plates. Mix and match your favorite outfits, changing colors as you color them in!

Beanie Babies

I think every 90s girl compared their collections of TY Beanie Babies. With rumors that some of them may be worth money, we made sure to leave those little heart shaped tags attached to their ears. Mine even had protective plastic cases for them. Now, they're in a bin for my 2 year old to play with!

Water Babies

I remember carrying my water baby every where I went. She was cuddly and needed my attention. Did you have one too?

Don't forget this Little Tikes toy every 90s girl had and a playground toy that got us on our feet.

Do you remember your grandmother walking through the door of your 5th birthday party with the biggest box you have ever seen? I sure do.

That was the year the Little Tikes Dollhouse made an appearance, and it's been around ever since.

Let's not forget the Barbie craze and all the cool McDonald's toys that had us praying our parents would take us out for a happy meal.

The 90s toys and games are still relevant today!

Little Tikes Dollhouse

This gives me all the 90s nostalgia I need for the day. Believe it or not I still have this dollhouse at home in my basement. I even pull the deck out for the family to go for a little swim when it's warm out.

Barbie Happy Meal Toys

Even the McDonald's toys were better in the 90s. I definitely had the bulk of this collection and I remember it occupying me for hours!

Easy Bake Oven

All the dreams of the 90s were baked in a miniature oven with the use of a little light bulb.I still don't know how a lot of these treats were food-grade, but they were undeniably delicious!  

Skip It

This was a staple playground toy, and I got so good at it! This smart contraption attached to your ankle as your rotated it around skipping over it. So many skinned knees because of this toy, but it was well worth it to beat the high score!

Bathtime Fun Barbie

What better way to make bathtime fun than with Barbie. I remembering needing to collect them all! This one definitely topped my Christmas list and bathtimes were never the same again.

Who remembers the commercial from 1991? I feel like it was yesterday that I was begging my parents for one!
