Our bedrooms were amazing in the 90s, weren’t they? Glow-in-the-dark stars, beaded curtains and bean bags. You know you were a child of the 90s when these were in your bedroom...

1. Dream Phone

Guess who’s got a crush on you… This was the essential addition to any good sleepover. Remember how fun it was to play?

 

2. Beaded curtains

Not exactly the most practical of room accessories, but they were colourful and totally cool. Not so great when they got tangled, but definitely worth it.

 

3. Computer consoles

In the 90s we had a huge choice of computer consoles, we didn’t know where to start! Should we beg our parents for a Dreamcast, a PSOne or a Nintendo 64? How did we ever choose?

 

4. Dance mat

Our parents probably didn’t appreciate the constant jumping up and down, but we would play this for hours trying to beat the high score and become a dancing expert.

 

5. Bubble backpacks

6. Slinky

These made a massive comeback in the 90s, we were all taking over the stairs and getting in the way of our parents. It was a devastating moment when they got tangled.

 

7. Glow in the dark stars

Covering our walls in posters wasn’t enough for us, we all wanted glow in the dark stars all over the ceiling too. These were the real reason to get excited for bedtime.

 

8. Hama beads

We all went crazy for these little beads, creating all sorts of patterns and characters. It was a nightmare if you knocked over a packet, trying to pick up every bead.

 

9. TV VHS combo

TV and video together….amazing technology! It meant you didn’t have to miss your fave shows while untangling your slinky or beaded curtains.

 

10. Mini Hifi

We thought HiFis were good until these bad boys came out. They were a tape deck, radio and CD all rolled into one compact system and it blew our minds!

 

11. Bean bag

Sinking into one of these was just the best. Chilling out reading a magazine or playing computer games, you wouldn’t be getting out of this for a while.

 

12. Fibre optic lamps

No 90s bedroom was complete without one of these! So pretty, changing through the colours of the rainbow, but they collected all of the dust in the world.

 

13. Yo-yo’s

We were all flashing our moves with these light-up yo-yos. Mastering tricks like walk the dog and cats cradle was a must.

 

14. Posters

If there was space on your wall then it would be covered in posters! From the faces of your fave band, films and tv stars, they were plastered everywhere.

 

15. Makeup set

We all thought they were truly amazing, all the makeup we could possibly ever want and need in one complete set.

 

16. Bunk beds

Even if you didn’t have to share your bedroom with your brother or sister, we still wanted bunk beds. That way all of your friends could to come over for sleepovers.

 

17. Lava lamps

Another 70s comeback, but this time they came in a mind-boggling variety of colours and shapes.

 

18. Magazines

We loved going to the local corner shop and buying our favourite magazines. Where else would the posters come from?

 

19. Transparent telephones

So that’s what an inside of the phone looks like! If we were allowed a phone in our room this was the one we all wanted!

 

20. Fluffy photo frames

Where better to put that pic of you and your besties or your fave band than in your pink fluffy photo frame? You know you had one…

 

21. Inflatable chair

If the inflatable bubble backpack wasn’t enough we could also get our hands on an inflatable chair for our rooms. In the words of Aqua, ‘Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!’

 

22. Spice Girls Impulse

They were the biggest girl band in the UK, and anything they did we wanted!

 

How many of these did you have in your 90s bedroom?
