24 Photos That Prove We Grew Up in a Very Different Time

If you were a child in the ’90s, you definitely can’t look at your family album and not shed a nostalgic tear: the crazy fashion, the first video games, cassettes, floppy disks, and other things modern kids don’t know about.

Bright Side decided to remember the golden years and collected some photographs for you from the happy people who grew up in the ’90s.

Can you remember the smell?

“What should I watch tonight?”

“Elementary school kids have iPhones, but this is what I did in elementary.”

The loudest noise of childhood

What do you know about choice?

“Guys, I think I’m in trouble I forgot to return this... You think they’ll be mad?”

In childhood, even board games were like a party.

This photo describes what it was like to grow up with 2 brothers in the ’90s.

Are there things that make you remember your childhood when you see them?
