The 90s, what an era that was, something that smartphone and tablet cultured millennials won’t understand. A time when we actually had to wait for hours to watch our favorite cartoons; online streaming didn’t exist back then.


So, it actually gave us time to play with lots of other stuff. Thought they may seem irrelevant and boring to today’s children, they meant the world to us. If you grew up in Saudi, then you have definitely come across these things that we’re about to show you.
