Starter pack to growing up 90s in South Africa
We take a look back at what made the last great decade so epic.

Ah the 90s, when the Days of our Lives title song was practically the soundtrack of our weekdays, and the only devices tweens and teens were addicted to was the Tamagotchi.

Growing up in the 'last great decade' meant adapting to ever changing everything – but a few things just have the 90s written all over them.

From the pop music we unashamedly listened to (and now sometimes listen to when no one's around), to the baggy jeans and the platforms, prepare for a heavy wave of nostalgia with our ode to the throwback era. 

Here's our starter pack to the 90s, save and share if you like:
