He’s Giving His Sister Christmas Gifts From The 90’s… The Reason Why Is Really Touching.
As children, some of us are called to responsibility much earlier than others. As a result, we might not have the same childhood experience as our peers.
Imgur user 'cheezeburger47' came up with an incredibly thoughtful idea:
My older sister took care of me as a kid while our Dad worked, so for Christmas I want to give her something special: something that'd remind her of her 90's childhood before I became her [responsibility] and hell-raiser of a lil brother :)
I figured there's 5 main parts of what it meant to be a 90s kid: toys, snacks, school supplies, entertainment, and clothing.
Scroll down to see what his older sister has in store! If this were your 90's Treasure Trove, what would you add to the mix? I would have probably added Arthur and Felicity DVDs as well as everything Spice Girls and Hanson.

Clothing & Accessories
All my friends had puka shell necklaces and snap bracelets, but not all were so lucky to have the hip hop Looney Tunes T-shirt, velcro wallet, and neon fanny pack!
The only thing missing in this mix is a roller backpack! Try not to inhale the Mr. Sketch Scented Markets in too deeply. I remember saving for the gelly rol pens and Lisa Frank stickers.

I don't know about you, but this looked like one of my drawers growing up. It wasn't a 90's childhood without Goosebumps and Doug!
Also pictured here: Animaniacs, Brain Quest, Earthworm Jim, Hook DVD, a Magic Eye book, The Muppet Christmas Carol DVD, and Shel Silverstein's Where the Sidewalk Ends
Don't forget the technology.
Now, that's what I'm talkin' about!
These tech items from 80s and 90s will make you laugh.
