    What do I miss from my childhood?

    - 10p Freddos
    - Panda pops
    - Tamagotchis
    - Summer holidays

    AND the ultimate..

    - Pokemon cards and Pokemon on the Gameboy.

    What do you miss from your childhood?

    Why didnt you just keep the pokemon cards? Why cant you download a gameboy emulator and the relevant roms? You can still buy freddos. In fact you can get them in choc yogurts.

    I miss not having to work and pay tax just to be alive. Somewhat more recently, I miss not having so many speed cameras.

    Gaelic cartoons on Bbc every week day morning. I grew up in Scotland and we were kinda strapped for cash up until i was about ten and never had more then five to channels growing up. I used to be able to sing the "puff the magic dragon" theme in Gaelic. Even though I'm from the outskirts of Edinburgh and have never met a Gaelic speaker the language still makes me a bit nostalgic.

    Ghibli movies. Still around yes, but for whatever reason they just don't seem the same as they did when I was a kid. I had a load of the videos when I was young and they just seemed so detailed and bizarre and just fascinating compared to Disney movies.

    The field near my house. They built houses on it and I remember running through grass taller than me before they did that.

    Old video cassettes. I've no idea why I miss them but there's something about trying to wind up film again after your baby brother pulled it out that is weirdly satisfying.

    The crazy aliens baby things that people used to say could make a baby together.

    Dungarees. I used to always wear them as a kid but now that I'm a five foot one seventeen year old, I just feel (and look) like a five year old again when I wear them. (Shame, top shop has some great ones)

    The noise of kids playing outside in summer. All the kids in my street were around the same age and so all hit puberty around the same time. There's still a few kids around but near enough every house in my street had at least two kids when I was growing up. My friend was from a family of four. The same families are all still here but it's just so quiet now. Most of the kids have gone to uni or are still in highschool or have just moved out and it doesn't feel right not hearing a dozen kids yelling and screaming as they have water fights or play games in summer.

    Actually having the energy to wake up in the morning to watch the morning cartoons and not caring about anything in the world. Everything was so much simpler, now all I do is just stress about school, homework and exams. But I guess I will miss those things too once I am older.

    I am 30 so older than most, simple answer is to sa I loved the 90s especially the late 90's as by then everything was balanced out games consoles came a good way, dial up internet and chat rooms, basic mobile phones that were fun to use, people talked to each other instead of being buried in phone/tablet

    Pretty much everything apart from the bullying I recieved and pareants so poor we couldnt afford heating, all clothes were second hand (before Primark and Supermarket labels.

    I miss independant shops and busy high streets, seaside holidays (instead of these sex holidays older teenagers have now)

    Sure with technology being so advanced now we can have a pc full of every old game on it, phones that work as mini computers, internet for cheap bargains but people aren't the same now.f

    And it was far easier to find work when I was a teenager
