We’re throwin’ it back with some early ’00s nostalgia when paying bills wasn’t a concern and the worst kind of transmitted disease you could get was cooties. Back when Doodle Jump was the main reason for getting a phone and the only kind of hangover you got was from one too many Slush Puppies.
If you’re in the mood for a little nostalgia then feast your eyes and get ready to reminisce with these 15 trends from the early ’00s that every Gen Z kid can relate to.
If not, then you must’ve had one mediocre childhood …
When you’d risk giving your computer AIDS for some good tunes.
Every kid’s first experience with being a parent, and failing miserably.
3. Littlest Pet Shops
There was always that one chick in class who collected Littlest Pet Shops and weirdly bragged about it …
4. Scoobie strings
When you’d have to go searching around the whole school to find that one person who knew how to get the scoobie started.
The ultimate white girl starter pack and you’d be lying if you didn’t have at least one of them.
When you’d get bored of playing so you’d get your Sim to go swimming, remove the ladder and watch them die …
7. Peter Pan
Everyone’s first crush who set high standards for boys worldwide. Only to be left pretty disappointed when realising Kyle was as good as it was going to get.
8. iPod nano
Uploading the new Lil Wayne album onto this bad boy and walking around with it on repeat because you owned the school.
There was always that one ratbag who would give one of these a spray as soon as they got on the bus and sit back waiting for the bus driver to lose his sh*t.
When you’d lose one of these baddies in the washing at least once a week.
The unintentional gateway to popping pills in your 20’s.
Thinking you were being slick without anyone noticing.
13. Butterfly clips
If you think stepping on LEGO is bad, you’ve never stepped on a butterfly clip and had it break into a million pieces under the soft part of your foot.
14. LG Webslider
The girls who owned these all peaked in high school.
When you were convinced you could actually sing so you recorded yourself only to be sadly disappointed by the outcome.
