I was born at the end of the eighties, so I spent a lot of the nineties as a kid and growing up – this means that whilst I have memories of this time they are probably not as strong as the noughties. So in this brand new feature I thought each week we will look at a different toy, trend, or object that was big in the nineties to take a walk down memory lane. Everything these days is all about technology and computers – so I want to explore the stuff that was around that wasn’t all reliant on the technology. So welcome to a new weekly feature where Saturdays just got Nostalgic! Since its the brand new weekly feature we thought we would give you a double bill this week!
Again researching for this article I sort of burst my memory bubble and came across a toy i completely forgot i had and the toy looking at it now i only remembered because I remembered the smaller versions (I cannot remember anything else about it). The nineties were a big time for things related to babies and one of those things that was a popular toy was Puppy Surprise – a cuddly Toy Dog that would “surprise you” with the amount of puppies it would give birth to. It would give “birth” by you pulling the dogs out of the stomach of the big dog. The surprise was that each of the toys came with either 3,4 or 5 puppies that all looked the same but had a few differences in their facial expressions. I don’t really remember a lot about it but I do remember putting toy puppies into a toy and thats really about it – here is the commercial below.
