Overview

If you can tell the difference between the Petes in Pete&Pete, know every step to the Macarena by heart, and remember when The Real World was about more than just drunken hookups, The Totally Sweet ’90s will be a welcome trip down memory lane.

With this hella cool guide, you’ll reminisce about that glorious decade when Beanie Babies seemed like a smart economic investment and Kris Kross had you wearing your pants backward. Whether you contracted dysentery on the Oregon Trail or longed to attend Janet Reno’s Dance Party, you’ll get a kick out of seeing which toys, treats, and trends stayed around, and which flopped.

So throw your ponytail into a scrunchie, take a swig from your can of Surge, and join us on this ride through the unforgettable (and sometimes unforgivable) trends of the ’90s.

Editorial Reviews

Yes, it's already time to become nostalgic about the nineties. For all those who yearn for the magic days of yesteryears when Braveheart and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective ruled the screen, and Blind Date and Supermarket Sweep kept you mentally occupied, this is the book for you. Ideally read with Totino's Deluxe Frozen Pizza. Editor's recommendation.
