Never in your life again will you experience excitement quite like Christmas morning as a kid. Trying to get to sleep was almost impossible since your imagination would run absolutely wild with the thought of Santa coming down your chimney with tonnes of presents.
Although writing your Christmas list was just like copying the Argos catalogue, it didn’t really matter as you’d been eyeing up your main present for the last six months. So, let’s reminisce and remind ourselves what we all had on our Christmas lists back in the 90s.
Jelly Alien Egg
Anyone remember these bad boys? Well, there was always a rumour flying around that if you put two in your fridge then by the time you got home from school to watch Bodger and Badger they’d have given birth.
Velco Food Play Set
Spending a Saturday afternoon down at your local Early Learning Centre was time well spent as a kid. If you were lucky, you would’ve come anyway with a Chad Valley Velco Food Play Set. Life would never be the same again.
Getting a Scalextric for Christmas was like a dream come true. Well, that was until you went back to school in January only to find that a friend of a friend who went to another school had been given a slightly better Scalextric complete with trees, people and a grandstand. Your dream had now turned into a Christmas nightmare!
The great thing about this game was that it was typically for boys. Thankfully, it’s bulkiness rarely made girls want to join in whatsoever. A little peace and quiet used to go a long way, especially if you had an annoying little sister.
Do your family still get you bad Christmas presents, thinking you’re about thirteen? Sort them out and request one of our handy gift cards. With one swipe on this card, you can get whatever food and drink you like, so hopefully Auntie Julie will put in a little more than a fiver this year.
