Take us back to the 90's: Tag!


We have loved chatting about all things 90's lately. Our favourite movies, shows, people and how much growing up in that era was incredibly fun! So when Danielle from Underland to Wonderland did a 90's tag and tagged us in it, we were super excited! Thank you Danielle! :) Click on the link above to read her tag! Without further a do, let's take a trip down memory lane....

1. Favourite Disney Film?
Lucy: Hmm before Tangled came into my life, I'd have to say my favourite Disney film was Aladdin, I used to love that one growing up. Ooh and Beauty and the Beast.
Kelly: I would say Beauty and the Beast although I think that's more as I got older. Ahh no actually it was 'Man of the House" starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Chevy Chase. We LOVED that movie and would search for it in every video rental place, even when we went to New York for the first time, we looked everywhere! It was funny and of course we had massive crushes on JTT!! :)

2. Favourite Music Artist?
Lucy: S Club 7, Spice Girls, Gareth Gates.
Kelly: Spice Girls, S Club 7, Gareth Gates!!

3. Favourite Sweets?
Lucy: Drumstick lollies, Jelly Tots, Fruit Pastilles, red licorice with the sherbet inside.
Kelly: Refreshers, Jelly Tots. Ice Cream man pick a mixes!!

 
4. Favourite Game? (Board game / school game)
Lucy: Tamagotchi and basically making everything from 'Art Attack' or playing 'Power Rangers' or witches in the garden.
Kelly: Tamagotchi board game. Anyone else remember that? We used to play it in our loft. Honestly though we didn't play a whole lot of board games, we just played with everything. We loved playing teachers and being outside.

5. Favourite McDonalds 'Happy Meal' Toy?
Lucy: Ooh the little Beanie Babies.
Kelly: Can't really remember many so I'm going to say the tiny little beanie babies.

6. Favourite Book?
Lucy: I loved any book that had bears in it when I was growing up and even into my teens I loved childrens books. I had a Noddy annual that I still have and adore, I had a big Paddington Bear book my Dad got me, ooh and one book called 'The Bear father Christmas forgot' which was the cutest, I also still have that. Ooh and we loved the 'Lucy and Tom' stories and anything from Shirley Hughes. 
Kelly: Harry Potter, my Twinkle annuals and The Magic Faraway Tree books.
 
 
7. Favourite Clothing Store?
Lucy: Tammy Girl. Oh my goodness, those were the days. We loved all the cute tees and platform shoes. I swear I had this exact same cat top as shown above! :p And don't get me started on the puffy waistcoats, I'm certain I had one in light blue that I adored.
Kelly: I'm going to have to agree with Danielle and say Tammy! I mean really what else would it be? Our Mum had to rush us into Stockport to go there once before a school trip away. Needless to say we left very happy with our puppy shirts and little baby pink and baby blue bubble waistcoats!

8. Favourite TV Show?
Lucy: TV was THE BEST back in the 90's. There were so many great kids shows. Superman with Dean Cane was always on in our house, as well as Thunderbirds and Stingray and of course the Power Rangers. Home Improvement was a family event and we adore Two of a Kind, Sister Sister, Sabrina and Lizzie McGuire.
Kelly: Oh my goodness, there are so many. We watched quite a bit of TV. We loved Brum (the little car) Noddy, Power Rangers, Sabrina The Teenage Witch, Beetleborgs, Sister Sister, Two of a Kind, Miami 7, LA 7, SM:TV Live, Lizzie Mguire, Art Attack! I'd have to say my favourite was probably Sabrina, ooh and Home Improvement!

9. What Show Would You Watch After School?
Lucy: I remember we went through phases with TV. We first loved Cartoon Network, then the Disney Chanel when they had Nigel and a bunch of other presenters, then as we got a little older we switched to Nickelodeon. I guess it would have been anything that was on. Ooh but I do remember days of racing home to watch Sabrina.
Kelly: Most likely we would be at Nanna and Grandad's after school and they didn't have all the channels we had, so that's when we would watch Zzzzap and Art Attack. If at home then Sabrina!

 
10. What Was Your Favourite 90s Game Show?
Lucy: Fun House and SMTV:Live if that kind of counts as a game show? They had it all, so i'm going to say it counts! :p SMTV: Live was seriously the best kids shows ever!
Kelly: Not sure if this really counts but I remember we used to watch Blind Date together as a family when that was on and Wheel of Fortune. I can't believe I would have forgotten Fun House if Luc hadn't of said it. We watched that over Christmas while at home this year! :p

11. Did You Own A Virtual Pet? (Cyberpet, Tamagotchi etc)
Lucy: Oh yes! I still have my yellow and orange Tamagotchi and I adored that thing. Just thinking about it makes me want to bring it back to life and look after it! :p
Kelly: Yes I had a Tamgotchi. I always liked the cute ones, come to think of it, I think I still have it somewhere at home!

12. Favourite Video Game and System To Play On?
Lucy: When Kelly and Chris got their Game Boy colours, I took to Chris's original Game Boy and loved that thing. I would play Tetris for hours. Our Nintendo 64 was also awesome, we loved playing against each other on Mario Kart.
Kelly: We grew up with a Nintendo 64 and my favourite game was either Mario Kart or Tony Hawks skateboarding. We definitely went through a skateboarding phase both virtually and in real life. I did get a game boy colour one Christmas and I loved it. My favourite game was a Wrestlemania one!

13. Weirdest Fashion Trend?
Lucy: Aww I can't call it weird because at the time it was perfect. I feel like 90's fashion especially for kids was awesome and so kid friendly. All the puffy jackets, denim skirts, flared jeans and little tshirts with cats on them, uh, bring it all back! :p I do remember owning platform shoes once, a la Baby Spice, I think they should make a comeback, they were amazing! :p
Kelly: I can't really think of anything "weird" although if you show me pictures I would probably go OK, that is a bit out there. I do remember having to buy platform shoes for a school dance once because of the Spice Girls, they were cool though, right? 

14. Favourite Toy?
Lucy: We loved everything as kids. We got into every phase and were passionate about each one! :p Beanie Babies were huge for us and we loved collecting them, along with the Beanie Baby cards. But my favourite toy forever and always will be Nobby. He's my ride or die! :p
Kelly: We went through a lot of phases as kids, Beanie Babies, pogs, stickers, Polly Pocket, Pokemon toys etc but I will also say that you could give us paint and a cardboard box and we would be happy. My most treasured possession though is my teddy bear, even though she's a dog to me, Mandy. I have had her since my Christening and even to this day I have her on my bed. If we are going away for a night she has to come. I love her to pieces, she's my comfort and my "safety blanket" and I would be lost without her.
 
15. Favourite Nickelodeon Show?
Lucy: Ooh Two of a Kind! We were huge on anything and everything with Mary Kate and Ashley. We LOVE them!
Kelly: That's a tricky one. My TV channels get jumbled up and I forget what show was on which channel. We loved watching The Amanda Show and Clarissa Explains It All is up there. Was Two of a Kind on Nickelodeon? If so I'm going to say that one. I love Mary Kate and Ashley!! :) 

We really hope you enjoyed reading the answers to our tag! We encourage you all to take part and do it yourselves, or feel free to answer one or two questions in the comments below! :)

Have an awesome Friday!
Love Lucy and Kelly xx
