You know your a 90’s Party Child when…

I was a 90’s party child and if I could have chosen any princess to go to my party when I was five it would have been Cinderella, mainly due to the fact that this was the only Disney VHS we had – aside from the jungle book. However, growing up in the 90’s (which I always think was just ten years ago – nope), princess visits, much to my dismay, did not exist – instead we had a variety of other party ideas…here are a few of my favourites below

My 90’s party memories:

  • All of your party songs were on tape! My mum had a whole party series on tape – Pirates, princesses everything (if you missed your favouite you couldn’t replay it for fear of rewinding back too far)!
  • You had a Spice girls themed party.  The guest list was always tricky for this one – I of course was Baby Spice!
  • Everyone had their party “frock” – not a dress a “frock” – big difference (mine was tartan – yes tartan).
  • Every party and birthday your friends bought you “Groovy Chick’ gifts!


  • You had a “Charlie Chalks” or a McDonalds party!
  • You had the ORIGINAL Trolls party.
  • Everyone couldn’t wait for Steps “5,6,7,8” to be played so they could do all of the “official” dance routine. (Likewise with “Saturday night!”)
  • A friend had a sleepover party and you got to watch “American” pie but you couldn’t tell your mum because it had swear words and rude bits (maybe this was just us me?)


  • One friend would buy you a BFF necklace but man was it a big descision who to give the other half too (and then of course after falling out with them you would ask for it back one week later).
  • You had Jelly and BLANCMONGE! I have not see Blancmange in years (thank goodness!).


  • The only people to dress up as characters were family members or guests!
  • Your mum hosted your whole party. Pass the parcel was life (I don’t think I even knew playcentres or entertainment companies exisited).
  • If a friend has a disco party they were really cool – only the cool kids had disco parties.
  • Party pictures would take forever because you had to wind the camera on (and no one knew what a selfie was!). Then you had to wait for them to be developed – yes kids – you had to wait to see what a picture looked like!
  • If a friend bought you gel pens they were BFF – gel pens were expenisve. If they were scented Gel pens – well that is friendship for life.
  • Popping candy and pixie sticks were key elements to creating a successful party bag!
  • For the first five years of your life it was mainly cousins, siblings and then random children your parents friends have that you now have as Facebook friends- even though you are pretty sure you haven’t spoken to them since your fifth birthday.
  • There was a lot of partying around a dining table – again maybe this was just me…

There are definitely a few more out there too! Let me know what you remember if you too were a 90’s party child or any decade for that matter! What were your best childhood party memories?

    I’m sorry for off-topic, I am considering about making an instructive internet site for pupils. Will possibly start with submitting interesting information just like”Giraffes and rats can last longer without water than camels.”Please let me know if you know where I can find some related info like right here
