Toys in the 90s

Games and Toys in the 90s basically made a decade of fads and prosperity. Everything from Power Rangers to Pogs to Pokémon. Tickle Me Elmo pulls a Cabbage Patch on holiday-shopping parents, while Beanie Babies raise the collector frenzy to uncharted levels. The digital age keeps its roots in the ever-evolving video game systems from Nintendo, Sega, Sony and others, but Tamagotchi virtual pets and Furby lead the interactive toy parade into the high-tech future.

94 thoughts on “Toys in the 90s

  1. I remember having a stuffed animal that came with a book telling u the story about the stuffed animal. He took away ur bad dreams according to the book! He had the face of a monkey, a turned up trunk like an elephant, cheetah spots, brown fur, he had a tail that had hair on the tip like a lion. My sister and I were just talking about it and were trying to figure out the name of the thing! It was probably around 1993 or so. It was def in the 90′s though. If u happen to know what I’m talking about, could u please help with the name?! Thanx so much!

  2. I know a couple big ones you missed. In the early 90′s. There was the Skippit (it went on one ankle & had a counter how many times you could “skip it”). Also in the late 80′s there was the Roller Racer (you sat on a triangle shaped seat & moved the handles side to side to get moving) & there were also Popples & Cherry Merry Muffins. I’m remembering a bag/stuffed animal from either the 80′s or 90′s called Doofles, but I have only found one site with mention of them.

  3. In 1991 I bought my son a stuffed animal that was orange, had eyes and a trunk for the nose and was in the shape of a “T”. It had Critters on the tag. I’ve tried to find another one but have not had any luck. Ring any bells?

  4. i remember a game for boys that was based on the game of slappsies where each parson had 2 gloves and 1 of the gloves had a sensor/button on it so youd no if u had been hit does any 1 remember what they was called

  5. When I was a child i had a toy . I do not no the name of it and can hardly remember what it looks like. I think it was a light Brown colour. It was fur but its face hands and feet were plasticy . I’m sure it read drifts to you and you could read with it and answer questions it asked by pressing buttons in the book. Im also sure that it had round glasses. I no that it is a bad description but if anyone could help you woupd be amazing and wonderful.

    • Doubt you are still wondering about this, but his name was Yano. I literally spent an hour looking for this because before seeing your comment, I had been looking for him as well.

  6. I had this toy when I was a girl that was small and plastic, maybe about a cubic inch, onthe shape of a cat or something but here were others. It looked condensed like it was sitting or crouching so it was small, and had hiddens wheels do it could move… I think you cranked it. But it’s eyes could light up and it had a button on its head so it could talk. Anyone know what this is?

  7. I used to have a light blue colored plastic pistol that made sounds like a real gun and it hand a silenced you would put on it and then it would sound silenced. It had a removable mag that was the battery pack. When you fired I beloved 16 shots it would make a click noise like it was out. You would pull the mag out and put it back. Does anyone know what this is? Id really like to find one online. Coolest toy gun ive seen.

  8. im just wondering if you guys can help me,, i had a toy when i was younger and it was like a purple monster and i thouht it was called tickle me eddy but i cant seem to remember,,and he had big eyes hat was hard and when you squeezed him he would giggle please help

  9. Looking for a gun from the late 80′s. It was shaped like the gun for the Nintendo, but was black and had plastic, wooden-colored grip that contained the 9volt battery. It made a realistic pistol sound. Any ideas? Brand name? Manufacturer? Picture?

  10. I seem to remember a toy that I’m starting to doubt whether or not it existed, because everyone I’ve described it to has no idea what I’m talking about. It was a doll with long arms, legs and neck, a crash-test-dummy-style head, and funky colored hair. When you grabbed it by the neck and shook it, it would make silly noises. Can anyone enlighten me as to what it was called?

    • I am looking for this toy or name of this toy. My supervisor has one and I accidently broke it’s neck and I wanted to see if I could replace it. I took a picture of the doll but unfortunately I can’t attach it to this comment. If anyone knows the name or where I could find one or a similar one please let me know.

  11. I had this toy when I was about 5/6, so the late 90′s early 2000s, it was about an inch or two big, they were plastic figures, that looked like a dog, it had a heart on its nose and it was hot pink in colour, but it was covered with purple feather like material, similar to the cheap feather bowa’s for little girls material. They were all the same colour but some were moulded in different positions, I had about 4. They looked like little puppies. I also had a back pack in the shape of a lilac dog/lamb looking thing, which was the same brand as the small figures, it was just a lilac colour by had the same type face and heart nose, it had a pouch to put the small figures in. Anyone know what I’m on about?

  12. Nancy, I had the same one. They were 4 puppies and they had a mama who was a backpack almost. They were made in the early 90′s I ot mine in 1992 or 1993. I don’t remember the name but I use to love playing with it. I remember after i moved one year I lost the mama and most of the puppies but one. I still have it. They also came in different types of animals. They had a cat and others.

  13. I got this stuffed animal beagle puppy 95/96…he came in a pink and purple box and had a green collar..i thought he was called puppy so real but i cannot find anything like it…i also had a cat that was the same thing, it was orange with black stripes and purred when you squeezed her…ive been looking for years for that beagle stuffed animal, so if anyone knows anything that sounds somewhat similar to that i would really love to find one again!!

  14. I saw an add just once around the time furbies came out for the first time, for a stuffed dragon toy that was shown worn on the shoulders that had similar electronics to furbies, I don’t remember if it talked but it moved its head wings and tail if I remember correctly, and it responded to voice. I’ve been looking for it ever since. Does anyone remember what it was called?

  15. I have been searching the stupid Internet to find my childhood game I wouldn’t say it was a board game but it was a orange and purple dog had a crazy tongue had a bone and the tongue would roll back into mouth with the bone the ears moved I can’t remember if it made any noise but u had to assumable it. To play and desumable it to put into box and I remember the box was big if anyone can help please email me presti1010@ymail.com thanks name is Prestine :)

  16. I can’t remember what this was called maybe somebody knows but it was purple and you sat in it and it would spin around and go back and forth I thought it was called like crazy tornado or something lol I would love it if anybody remembers it!!!!

  17. i had quite a few toys when i was younger but i never knew what they were called, it looked kinda like a tortoise with long legs and had hair, its “shell” opened up like ladybug wings and was hollow inside so you could put things in.
    it wasnt very big. wpuld love to know if anybody else remembers these as would like to try and get one for my daughter

  18. I have 2 games (not really sure if they are considered games or not). The first one, you could “build” sand underwater. Once you emptied the water out, the sand was dry again.
    The second game (again, not sure if considered a game or not), were very small dominoes that were put into a template that was placed into a rack. Once all the dominoes were up, of course you could knock them down.
    For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of either of them. Can anyone help out?

    • Yep. That’s just called magic sand. If you live in New Zealand I believe you can still buy it at toy world. It was a while ago that I saw it, so unsure if they still sell it or not.

  19. Was wondering if anyone could help me out. I used to have this toy, I think late 80′s or early 90′s, (not too sure) and it was this pony castle which I believe had lights and sounds, and all the ponies that you had for it were small, hard plastic ponies that were kind of on a round base type thing and imprinted on the base underneath was a horseshoe shape. If memory serves me right, the castle also had horseshoe shapes on it and if you sat the pony on one, it did different things (lights went on etc) does anyone have a clue what I’m talking about? I’ve searched everywhere and can’t seem to find it anywhere!

  20. I am looking for a toy I had as a child. I think he was called power pooch or something.. It was a stuffed Dog toy whos lip and eye brow were adjustable to make him look like he was mean.. they also had another one that had a cape i believe that came out of his back more of a super hero version of the one I had.. I really would like to find one but I cannot remember exactly what it was called or who it was made by.

  21. my boyfriend was just telling me about toy he had as a child and I cant find it anywhere. he said it was a football but had a monster’s face??? Please help if you can thank you!!!!

  22. When I was little I grew up on Guatemala, I had these miniature toys that had houses, cars, and swings. I think they were bears but I don’t remember. And they were not Leggos. They came out around the late 80s to the early 90s. Any help will be appreciated!

  23. Hi! I was wondering if anyone remembers the name of a toddler toy from the early 90′s. It was an electronic yellow ball with animals pictures on it. You would roll it and whichever animal picture was face up, it would say what the animal was and it’s sound.

    Thanks!

  24. Hi. This list is brilliant. Although I’m looking for a toy from the middle of the 90s. They are little teddy bears (Possibly other animals too) Made from a hard material with very short fur, they were in bright pink/purple/blue etc colours and they had red plastic hearts that would light up. I think the toy was a couple of inches tall at the most. Anyone remember the name of these?

  25. Love 80′s & 90′s toys!

    Can you help me?

    Two different toys…
    1. Rubber kittens with blankets on their back that when you put your finger on it, the heat revealed a message??

    2. Plastic cute puppy/puppies with a light up habitate…(I had a husky with a ice slide, igloo and frozen lake)??

    I am a Mom now and would love for my babies to enjoy these kind of toys as well.

    Thanks in advance and God bless!

  26. Hiya,
    When I was little I had a purple toy van that opened up and inside was a small town (in a similar style to Polly Pockets). It came with about 6 little dogs in it and you could hide them in various places within the town. I remember one being a rock and when you twisted the top, the rock opened.
    I’ve been trying to find it but nothings coming up. :/

    Thank You!

    • I had a van like this too! I don’t know if it was the same toy or not. Mine had people and when you took the roof off it also had rooms made on it. I remember you could put the people in different places. but cannot for the life of me find a picture of it anywhere!

  27. This toy was either late 80s early 90s. It was a toy truck with machine guns the truck came in pieces and you had to take a black plastic rod to weld the truck together with a little gun that turned the black rod really fast. Then you could crash the truck and then you would have to weld all the pieces back together. I know that Mattel made a version in the 70s that’s all I can find online could really use some help thanks

  28. I have been looking for the star castle collection everywhere….I finally found the old 90′s commercial for it on YouTube but I can’t find anywhere online that sells it. I had ll the castles when I was little and I loved them…..I remember they were also teases. The tops of the castle towers would come off and they were cups! Coolest toy ever!

  29. when I was growing up in the 90s, my grandmother had two dolls in her house which we called Pink Baby and Blue Baby. They were plush dolls, maybe 6 or 7 inches tall, and came with a book (each). I have Pink Baby but Blue Baby and the books were lost. Pink Baby has a tag, reading Tiny Treasures, which is supposedly located in Memphis TN. Unfortunately, Tiny Treasures has seemingly gone out of business. Can anyone confirm these childhood memories of mine and point me towards someone who might have a Blue Baby and the books???????

  30. What toy in the 80s shot a car out of a long plastic type space gun. The car was like a rocket car. The gun you pumped and shot this car out of it. It was red white and blue. I had this when I was a kid and loved it. What toy manufacturer made it as well. Please help.

  31. I am desparately searching the net for an electronic educational toy i had in early 1990s, it was flat like an ipad in shape but slightly bigger, no screen and had these educational cards that sat on top of it and would read you facts and ask you questions when you press it in certain places, im sure it was called compedia or something like that, I was the only one who had one and I never saw one again.
    Also, remember the Phillips CDI?

  32. Hopefully any of the many toy-lovers on this site can give me a hand. I’m looking for a toy my friends and I used to play with when we were younger, which would have been around the late-90s/early-00s. Anyway, it was similar to K’Nex and Legos in that you would take the individual pieces an build stuff. Unlike K’NEX or Legos, the pieces were all the same size and shape. They were plastic and were shaped like little ladders with two rungs. The colors I remember them being in were blue and green. There may have been yellow pieces, but I’m not sure. The reason I’m asking is because I had a dream the other night about playing with them and when I awoke, I felt really nostalgic. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

  33. I would like to know where I could email a photo of what Im pretty sure is a 90s toy that I cant find the name of!! Its so bright and colorful, you can play music with it, record with it..I really want to know what it is!! Ive looked everywhere for it. It was made by Main joy limited and of coarse it doesnt exist anymore since Dec of 2009. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!! Love the site.

  34. Hello everyone, Im driving me crazy, just dont remember the name , but i wanna re-buy a toy in particular, it´s the skull of plastic of Mattel, and I can personalize the eyes and the moth whit the elements that came whit the toy, If anyone can helpme please send me a mail, I just wanna got the last present of Santa. :D

  35. Hi all, I’m trying to remember a toy car I got in the early 1990′s or the late 1980′s (sadly I was too young to remember). It featured a gimmick that allowed you to customize the toy, by flipping the exterior of the car inside-out, like a box and it’s flaps (the flap connecting all of the sides was located at the back of the car. The one I had featured a blue pick up truck and a white/red van. It also had the ability to expand the plastic tires for a more beefed up look. I can’t seem to find anything on the internet. I appreciate any help on the name of the toy series!

  36. Does anyone know the name of something like this?
    It was these medium-sized plastic pieces that you used to build animals with. I know that at least dogs and elephants were two of the animals you could build with it. We had them at the K3 class I went to, and I really want to find pictures of them but can’t do so without the name.

  37. i grew up in the 90s and there was this toy i remember playing with you filled a mold with liquid rubber/plastic and you baked it in an oven similar to the easy bake oven and it made little dolls and there was different molds for different outfits and hairstyles i remember playing with it at a friends house but now i cant remember what it was called

    • I also had one of those! Pretty sure I used my Christmas money and bought it on clearance. Lol. I made little dolls for all my friends. I remember my mom saying it made the house smell bad. Lol I think it was called a dolly maker?

  38. I have a toy here, a stuffed animal that has a scrunchy attatched to it!
    It has an S on it’s “ass” and I have NO idea what it was called! It were to be used in your hair or on your wrist.
    and you could stuff the scrunchy inn to the animal so that you were left with only the stuffed animal!

  39. I remember I had a doll that I used to fall asleep. It was one of my favorites. It was a plush caterpillar with a cute plastic face. It had big blue dreamy eyes and a nighttime hat with moon and stars. It had a voice box and I seem to remember that it’s cheeks had lights that turned on underneath the plastic. The material was silky with baby blue and baby purple colors. I can’t find it anywhere. Does anybody remember these and if you do please let me know.

  40. Does anyone remember the 90s toys that when you opened the vehicle witha plastic key, it would open and a helicopter would come out. Or the motorcycle that when you used the key, guns would come out???

  41. Please help – I’ve been looking for years for the name of a set of toys I had when I was younger. They were ‘Mighty Max’ like, because they were sets of miniature figures each inside of a different organ of the body. These mini-playsets also shot little darts as you used them to ‘attack’ the other figures from other organs. There was a heart, an eye, a liver, and a few others that I don’t remember. I thought they were called ‘Body Warriors’ but I found no mention of this online. Does anyone remember these at all??

  42. Forgetting some:

    Crossfire — that game was awesome.
    Lite Brite — I loved this thing!
    Snap bracelets! (Not necessarily a toy, I know, but a fad nonetheless.)

    Also, not sure if this is the same thing Haze is trying to find, but kinda sounds like it:

    It was a tabletop electronic learning “machine” that I got for Christmas in like the early ’90s, I think. It had a gray frame with a slanted back to it that you slid big plastic cards into, and those cards had numerous pictures on them on both sides. I think the machine would ask questions or give hints and you’d answer by pressing one of several blue buttons. It had stuff like landmarks such as Stonehenge and Sydney Opera House and animals and such. Also, on the slanted back panel where you inserted the cards was an engraving of the world map.

    I for the LIFE of me can’t remember the name of this device. Would anyone out there happen to know?

  43. Hi been looking for this 90s console i had as a kid for years. All i remember is it was a white square block with red, blue, green and yellow square buttons on it. Just those 4. You plugged it to the back of the tv and all i remember was a educational bear, catchy music and you had to push a colour button for the correct answer. It was n educational toy for numbers, letters and matching pictures. Nobody seems to know what it is and it’s driving me crazy haha!!

  44. So there was this toy. It was a furry monkey with a hat and plastic eyes that had flashed green. When you talked to it, it would sort of repeat what you said, but it would be in beeps of different tones. The eyes would flash when it beeped. Ring any bells?

  45. Hi. I got my Teddy Bear late 80′s . He used to record what was said while squeezing his hand & repeat it back. NOT Teddy Ruxpin. Orange heart on chest would light up. Zipper on his back to get to the recorder (took it out in my teens to hide me smokes lol) Floppy dark brown ears & light brown/grey fur. Been my best mate for 25yrs & no idea what he is??? Any ideas?

  46. Hi I’m wondering if anyone can help. When I was at school in the late 90s we used to collect small figures and I can’t remember or find what there called anywhere. They were small figures that came with a card and were often dressed in different armour, all I can remember is there was a skeleton and sabre tooth tiger, if anyone could help would be appreciated,

  47. I am looking for a multicolored plush caterpillar about a foot long that was sold by the Oriental Trading Co. in the 1990′s. It is no longer made but does anyone have a used one??

  48. im looking for a blue double decker bus it came with a little blonde man in blue suit and hat with a red tie and also a monkey in a little compartment it was my ultimate favourite toy i really want to see if i can get one but i dont know the brand or name???????

  49. Does anyone know of this toy i had? I’m not sure exactly when i got it, i was really little so it might have been in the 90′s. I found it in a Goodwill, It kinda looked like a alien monster. I remember it had a compartment and there was a egg inside. Inside the egg was a baby that looked like the mom. I remember the baby more than the mom, it had a antenna and i think it might have talked in a incomprehensible language, it had batteries, oh and the antenna might have glowed. It might have came with 2 eggs, one baby was pink and the other was yellow.

  50. I remember a toy truck when I was a kid. Hope someone can help me remember what it was! It was a monster truck, and it was silver, and I think it had some odd spoiler thingy on the back along with the truck bed, can’t quite remember that. Anyway, it had teeth and you could open its mouth. I looked at the Mattel line Attack Pack and can’t find it so not sure if that’s even right. When the truck had its mouth closed, you could still turn the top side part of it, so it looked like it was baring its teeth on one side. It MIGHT have had a flame design on its sides. The teeth were fairly realistic and so was the tongue. The tongue was hard plastic firmly in the mouth that was curved slightly (so it looked more real). I think a cousin stole it from me because I lost it a long time ago and I loved it.

  51. I wish I knew some of these toys never heard of them well most of them . I had a jane west doll with leather clothes and her own cowgirl town wish I knew what hapoend to it never seen anything like it since that was my favorite toy

  52. Trying to remember the name of a game it had a yellow moterized mouse that moved when you pushed his tail In and If I remember right it had these sticks that looked like cat paws with a hook on it and u would have to catch the mouse it also had pieces of cheese. Hope someone can help and remember what it’s called

  53. When my girls were little we bought this great set of building toys designed for girls and I can not remember the name but the blocks where all rounded and very stylized. There where several different sets one was a safari set and one was an ocean or underwater set. There were people you could build and animals and you could build tree houses and underwater castles. The kids loved it but I can not for the life of me remember the name does any one remember this building set?
