13 Things Kids Want Today Versus What We Wanted In The '90s

1. Kids in the '90s: Pagers! Remember? Those little boxes we used to clip to our pants?
Kids today: An iPhone — but not to actually make calls. Nobody talks on the phone anymore. That's sooooo '90s.

2. Kids in the '90s: You wanted to be the sixth member of the Spice Girls.
Kids today: Some kids want to be Instagram famous. That's a thing, right?

3. Kids in the '90s: Hit Clips. One minute of low-quality music? Sign me up.
Kids today: Anything inappropriate and way beyond their years. Also, Pandora. (Seriously, where was this when we were kids?)

4. Kids in the '90s: Tamagotchi. This was a serious responsibility.
Kids today: The Tamagotchi app for your smartphone.

5. Kids in the '90s: Lunchables, Gushers, Surge, and Cosmic Brownies for dessert. A well-balanced diet! *thumbs up*
Kids today: Whatever it is, it needs to be vegan, organic, locally sourced, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, ethically produced, grass-fed, and cage-free. Or Starbucks.

6. Kids in the '90s: The TV line-up was dope and slumber parties were a weekly happening. It was all sugar rushes, pillow fights, prank calls, and tons of gossips.
Kids today: Netflix. Ben & Jerry's. Boom. Done.

7. Kids in the '90s: We all had those typical '90s jobs — babysitting, mowing lawns, working at the local movie theater... whatever gave you extra spending money for slap bracelets and tattoo chokers.
Kids today: Has this really changed all that much? They're just kids. It's not like they can open a dental practice or defend the innocent in court.

8. Kids in the '90s: You'd go to Claire's and get the BFF necklace where you'd each wear one half. No friendship was legit without the necklace.
Kids today: You better watch each other's Snapchat videos, or there's going to be trouble.

9. Kids in the '90s: Basically, we had to have anything we saw in a commercial.
Kids today: It's probably expensive, and it probably starts with an "i."

10. Kids in the '90s: Jelly shoes, tie-dye shirts, overalls with one side unstrapped, and a Starter jacket for chilly weather.
Kids today: Crop tops, high-waisted jeans, septum rings, and overlined lips.

11. Kids in the '90s: We froze our butts off outside until it was dark, building snowmen and making snow angels, and then came home for a late dinner and hot chocolate.
Kids today: Cold? Snow? But, but, reality TV!

12. Kids in the '90s: Arts and crafts in school involved glueing colorful tissue paper on cardboard and making popsicle stick snowflakes.
Kids today: Now, you can color in coloring books — on your smartphone. (Adults can do this too, right? Guys?...)

13. Kids in the '90s: Our parents said we couldn't date until we were 40, but we were usually able to sneak into the back row of the movie theater for a quick make-out sesh.
Kids today: Today's kids are all about "ship goals," which I only recently learned meant a relationship and not a ship. I'm not sure why kids would be interested in either one, but there you have it.
