Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay in blog posts, the holidays definitely got the best of me. I’ve made a promise though to blog weekly and even daily when I can throughout 2019!
With that being said since this is my first blog post of the new year I figured I would pick something cute and fun that most of us probably remember playing with as kids, Briarberry Bears! The Briarberry Bears were a Fisher Price toy that was introduced in 1999 and were designed to stand up, sit and lay down.
These little bears were one of my favorite toys growing up because they were pretty much a cross between dolls and stuffed animals and made a great alternative for kids who didn’t like to play with baby dolls (like me lol)!
Physically these bears were so well made and high in quality that not only did they look adorable but they felt so special and custom. They came with full accessories, clothes and furniture so you could really make it an interactive experience with friends if you wanted. I personally remember playing with these by myself and being fully entertained.
When I was an early teen in the 90’s my fondest memories were roaming the mall on weekends with friends and not having a care or problem in the world. We literally could spend hours there and pretty much close the place down.
One of my favorite stores that was probably at the peak of its popularity at the time was Claire’s. Filled with fun accessories and jewelry it was the ultimate novelty store for girls and still is in my opinion. The first time I ever went inside a Claire’s I remember seeing a fluorescent purple inflatable couch hanging from the ceiling, remember when blow up furniture was all the rage? There was also the limited edition Claire’s diva trinket box pictured below that every 90a girl probably got at some point!
Another classic hot spot for all the “hip and happening” was good old Limited Too. Basically a one stop shop for all the trendiest outfits, pajamas, bathing suits, accessories and even cosmetics! This one speaks for itself I mean who didn’t love this place growing up?!! I pretty much came here anytime I needed a new outfit for an occasion or even just a gift for a friend. They had it all!
Let me know in the comments some of your favorite stomping grounds from back in the day!
Who remembers Polly Pocket toys? My fun throwback toy for any 90’s kid to feel nostalgic
Throwback! Who remembers 90’s Polly Pockets? These were literally my favorite thing when I was a kid, I remember playing with these for hours. Funny how something so small could keep me so busy and fascinated. Not only were they absolutely adorable being so minature but the colors were so vibrant and different it made you wan’t to collect them all. The best part was you could pretty much carry them around anywhere you went.
