26 gifts every nineties kid NEEDED to get their hands on!

Getting gifts was so much more fun back in the nineties. Hours spent circling your favs in the Argos catalogue, none of this shopping online business. And while most kids would probably frown to the ground if there wasn’t at least one electronic gadget amid their present selection, we would have been just as content with a Mr Frosty Maker as we were an XBOX. God we sound like our parents.

Take a trip down memory lane with this lot. Walking the journey in light up trainers is optional.
