List Rules Vote up the toys that you remember being cool, but actually... they were pretty dumb.
There will never again be toys as simultaneously amazing and awful as '90s toys — especially '90s girl toys! The greatest playthings of the decade were true originals, just weird enough to resonate with baby millennials. Wonderfully dumb '90s toys included things like My Size Barbie (what we would now call a sex doll), Bumble Ball (basically a vibrator), and Dream Phone (a patriarchal game designed to keep women in their place). By now, you hopefully realize that most of your prized possessions were total bullsh*t. Here are the toys all '90s girls had, loved, and eventually got over.
