The '90s were the best. We didn't have a care in the world, besides racing home after school to get the last Fruit By The Foot and remembering to feed our Tamagotchi — or Nano Pet, if that's what you were into. We're often saddened by the fact that today's children are missing out on the best toys from the days of yore. But, now the nostalgia has gotten so intense that toymakers are reprising some of the classics. Tamagotchi will be coming back as "Tamagotchi Friends," and they'll even be able to interact with each other. The little guys will run for $20, but they won't be available in the U.S. until next year — just enough time for you to brush up on your parenting skills.
And, if that's not enough for you, there's another major '90s craze coming back for more. The Furby Boom is set to be the hottest thing this Christmas, and it's so much more than the original stuffed animal. This version is interactive, responds to music and motion, and can even learn English. And, since we're living in the connected age, it also comes with an accompanying app. We're a wee bit out of the age bracket for these toys, but we're still tempted to pick some up for a walk down memory lane.
