Remember the *cough* olden days? OK, I kid, it’s not the olden days, but I’m sure our kids think it is! Wasn’t the 90s great. Life was care-free, all we cared about was music, Supre and who was having the next party.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane for a moment…

1. This is where you kept all your important dates. Like homework. More homework. Parties. And those boys you had crushes on.

2. You remember the good old days when $2 bought you a sh*tload of mixed lollies or hot chips.

3. This is the only weather guy you knew, and the only one that mattered. All hail Tim Bailey.

4. This song was YOUR song.

5. And you wound down the windows and screamed at the top of your lungs, “I ALONE LOVE YOU!”

6. Your hair was not OK without these butterfly clips.

7. And you lived for the zig zag.

8. You killed your Tamagotchi, more than once.

9. Stone the flamin’ crows! Your evenings were spent watching your faves, Neighbours and Home and Away.

10. You spent your recess playing elastics, marbles or handball.

11. Your pocket money got dropped on BINS. Itty Bitty Bins.

12. You learned how your body works from a giraffe in a van.

Loved taking a little walk back through the 90s? Now you can dance your way back too. Your 90s faves are coming back, and touring Australia. LIVE, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots are coming in 2020.
