Okay 20 and 30-somethings, think back on your childhood and tell me: What do you see?
If I took a wild guess, I think I’d be safe right if I said you see a lot of Disney movies. The classic ones like Beauty and The Beast, The Lion King, Hercules, Tarzan, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, Aladdin, and Cinderella to just name a few.
And I may be biased here, seeing as these movies literally were my childhood, but they’re much better than any recent Disney movie nowadays. I mean, I have nothing against them, but there’s just something about the nostalgia you get after thinking about something you used to watch as a kid.
And now, for all of us “90s kids”, Disney has launched a new collection of Disney merchandise called the Oh My Disney ’90s Flashback Collection, where you’ll find things like T-shirts, notebooks, pens, lunchboxes, cups, records, and mugs among many other things. And they’re all emblazoned with classic Disney movie characters.
This is a collaboration between Oh My Disney and Shop Disney, and even though the items in this collection look like they’re targeted at a younger audience, guess who’s drinking coffee out of a Hercules mug and taking her lunch to work in a Goofy lunch box any day now.
It’s not gonna be the kids.
So scroll down to see some of the items from this collection, and get ready to ooh and aah, because nostalgia’s about to hit you like a brick.
1. Hercules Mugs
There’s this 2-Piece Mug Set, one showing Hades and the other Hercules and Meg, depending on how you feel that day: done with the world, or wide-eyed idealist.
2. Beauty & The Beast Cups
These drinking glasses are the perfect item for a movie which featured sentient kitchen utensils and furniture, wouldn’t you say?
3. Rainbow Pens
Why not mix a 90s staple with another 90s staple to create the biggest nostalgia blow of all time. This Lion King ballpoint pen has eight different colors for all your moods.
4. VHS Journals
Journals shaped like a VHS tape. I seriously need one of these, and I need it now. Preferably with Beauty and The Beast.
5. Vinyl Records
Why not get real fancy and listen to all your Disney soundtracks in vinyl?
These key chains come in several different movies and if you open them up, they reveal a little tiny VHS tape. I want ten!
A desk clock to let you know just how quickly time is passing you by…
8. Enamel Pins
I would stick these in all my clothes and bags, and I’m not even kidding!
Just watch me pull out this bad boy at the office. Any day now, and I’m not even ashamed. And no I didn’t accidentally take my kid’s lunchbox, Susan, I don’t even have a kid.
So, is there something out of these items that you need? Which one was your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
