Or the horror of waiting for it to pop.
@BowlingAlleyCat, When you try to be cool and hold it in your hand.
@BowlingAlleyCat, The original jumpscare!
@BowlingAlleyCat, I put them over my belly button. Don't try it
@BowlingAlleyCat, Hey, can I be an honorary 90s kid if I was born in 2000 but understand all of the things people say only 90s kids get?
@Saphire, I was born in 1997. Am I a 90's kid? I remember a lot of this stuff.
@BowlingAlleyCat, or the hickies that you put all over your body...
@Jedi 97, well if you remember it and don't just know about it, then ya, but technically you were a "00" because it usually refers to the biggest part of your growing up years, usually I would say like 5ish into your early teens. So whatever decade took up most of that time, then that's what kid you are.
@CynicalSir, I guess so. I always say you have to remember the 90's to call yourself a 90's kid. I'm not talking about watching rugrats reruns in 2001 when you were 5. I'm talking watching new episodes of Captain planet.
@Jedi 97, Well, you were born in that time frame. I grew up with all kinds of things from the 90s, but it makes me sad that people say I don't understand them just because I was born a single year too late.
Literally the only good part about visiting the dentist
@gettinitfosho, uhh, the high after getting laughing gas
@D0N RAM0N, I used to get another gas whenever I had cavities filled. Not sure if that was supposed to get you high, but it didn't work on me. Makes me wonder what I would be like if I was high...
@gettinitfosho, maybe you didn't know you were high? I think most of those "after the dentist" videos had people who were high, but weren't aware of it
@gettinitfosho, or winning them at the roller rink
@gettinitfosho, wait...the dentist had those?? I had to steal one at recess
@D0N RAM0N, :)
@ToolOGT92, Or ChuckECheese's...
"Hey, you should put it on your forehead!"
@WelcomeToCanada, I used to do that. My mom would always get mad at me because she hated looking at the big red mark it left
(Secret these still exist and are used)
@Eric T Cartman, I work at a pool during the summer. My boss found two of these and told me to throw them away. I couldn't just waste the innocent little things. So I threw them in my shorts instead. They have served me many a time
@Eric T Cartman, I work at a toy store and yea we still sell them.
@Geodude, thank you. My cousin was born in 2004 and he loves these things when he gets them.
Nope. It's been 17 years and I still don't know how the hell they work.
But I was born in 2000, and I remember these very much.
You can still buy these today
They still fvcking have these!!
They still have those
I played with these...soooooo
Man, I'm 15, these things were the bomb when I was younger
Shut the fúck up with all this '90's kids' bullshít
@thebluecrab, it is all nostalgic. People like thinking about their childhoods, and it's nice to see the toys we played with before everyone had computers. :)
@Amniphast, These poppers are not exclusive to people born in the 90's
@thebluecrab, yes, but they were a big thing then. Now, most kids don't enjoy these things as much as their video games. I was a 90s kid, and while I don't post about it, I remember when one of these was my favorite toy. I only mean that telling people to shut the f up about it is more than a little unecessary. This is just another meme.
@Amniphast, The '90's kids' is just another way for people to feel better about themselves for no reason other than playing with fúcking toys as a kid. It is an irrelevant reason to raise your self esteem for something as lowly and inconsiderable thing like this
@thebluecrab, if it makes people feel better, then go for it! :) I mean look at you... you are doing the same thing by being overly self righteous about pictures made to inspire happiness on the internet.
@Amniphast, It isn't used to make people feel better. It is used to exile those who do not remember it. No one is happy about a picture of a popper
@thebluecrab, I am. Maybe that is the real purpose. If you take offense to a picture of a popper and some 90s kid claiming as a symbol of their childhoods, I have bad news for you... the internet only gets worse from here...
@Amniphast, there's a difference between 'offense' and 'pissed off'. Also, breaking news! The Internet is mostly anti-90's kids posts
@thebluecrab,why would you let something so trivial pass you off? It is just meant to be fun. This app is to make people happy, not for people to lash out and be upset. Just take it with a grain of salt. :) I am very tired of a couple of memes, but others enjoy it, so I just hit the little next button and find something else to make me happy :)
@Amniphast, because it has no purpose in a place called 'Funny Pics'
@thebluecrab, it is funny to some of us. Just not to you.
@Amniphast, How is this funny?
@thebluecrab, some people relate to it. The same way I don't necessarily understand the anise references, but it makes some people happy.
@Amniphast, Yeah but those normally have some sort of related punch line or a literal punch. This is a statement that isn't even exclusive to 90's kids
@thebluecrab, ok. So do like so many others and relate to it along with everyone else. I still see no reason to shoot people's good times down.
@Amniphast, because it isn't funny
@thebluecrab, it isn't funny to you. That is what the little button on the right labeled next is for. :) that is what the rest of us seem to do...
@thebluecrab, Someone's jealous they weren't born in last 'good' generation. 90's FTW
@Click to toggle, actually, i was born in the 80s and it started in early 90s, so unless you were born in 1990-1994 ish, you probably dont remember these in the 90s but in the 2000s...
@Click to toggle, This post gave me cancer. No generation is worse or better than another because of how they entertain themselves
@thebluecrab, Says the non-90's kid.
@Click to toggle, annnnd now you have no argument so you have receded to insults. I was born in 1999. I had these toys as a kid, too
@thebluecrab, Ahahaa insults? I have not even said anything close to an insult. Man you're delicate as a flower aren't you. And 1999 is still young as hell. 1990 - 95 is the golden age. Before the humanity decomposed
@Click to toggle, You are a cynical, narcissistic prick. I'm the special flower? You're trying to act better than me by saying I'm not a '90's kid.' 1990-95 WAS NOT A GODDAMN GOLDEN AGE. Do you know why people like the 90's so much? Because it was their childhood. That is it. Nothing has changed other than your age. Stop acting like your childhood was better than others for no reason
@thebluecrab, why does this guy keep getting downvoted?
@MasterEmerald, because he's acting like a mental jackass over something he doesn't like. Pretty much the same thing as people lashing out at other little memes they don't like
Or anyone who has been to a chucky cheese or a peter pipers, is 2000’s kids grew up with 90’s hammy downs
I FORGOT THESE EXISTED
Actually, I'm from 1998 so not a 90s kid per se, and it's just elasticity and spring potential energy.
My kid came home from school with one of these, and I had flashbacks. Needless to say I stole it once she fell asleep....
Ok I am honestly kid of annoyed by this I was not born in the 90s and I loved these I watched ed edd and eddy I am not I 90s kid BUT I fvcking no half the stuff these things say oh only the 90s kids understand this or remember this sry about the rant
I used to put them on my skin and they would leave little red hickey marks.
I remember arcades would sell these and I would play with them till I lost em.
I remeber these being pipe bombs and one of us would have to poke it in order to explode.......nobody would do it
It's the worst when they pop in your hand while you're trying to set them down.
@Kirigaya Kazuto, ya
@thebluecrab, Sounds like you're a angry tormented child. Please go on
I would sneaky place one by my dad and just wait for the horror to ensue
They still give these out at my doctor's office and dentist
I used to pop these off my boner😝
Speaking of miniature land mines, if you guys have any pop-its left over from the Fourth of July, a fun thing to do is put one under each bumper on the bottom of the toilet seat, and wait for someone to sit down. *rubs hands maniacally*
Does 1997 count?
I used to use these to play war. Me and my friends got them ready and put them on our finger or a stick and aimed them at each other. Better than Nerf wars if you have enough. By far.
I was born in 2000 and I love these to death...please don't turn me into stuckpixel
Did anyone else put it on there arm to see if it would hurt?
I was actually born in 2001 and I enjoyed waiting for it to pop when I was younger.
I still do
Or the pain of having one go off in the palm of your hands

Alright time for an educated guess. From the glossy but dull look of the material, I would say it's some type of rubber. Seeing as how they're all different colors, I assume you don't put two halves together to make a ball. Knowing about how a rubber cup can easily become a suction cup, and the comment about it leaving a red mark, I'm assuming you pushed it down on your skin until it created a suction lock. Then you waited until the force of suction wasn't strong enough to hold it to your skin and it "popped" off. Thats probably wrong but it's my best guess
@BunnyGruff, you're actually pretty close but you would just do it on your skin I always did it on the table because I hated the red mark it left
@BunnyGruff, You turn it inside out, set it down on a flat surface, and wait for it to turn back and pop up into the air.
Wow I'm literally the only one here who has never heard of these things (born in 95 btw) but from the comments it seems like it has something to do with popping these on your foreskin while at the dentist in Walmart...
Great cat you
There was never an understanding of the magic... It is still a mystery.
I know the magic of that you and I'm not a 90s kid!
Am I the only one who thought it was magic that made these puppies fly?
Anyone remember the "challenges" you were put through because of these toys? I remember having to wait forever for it to pop on my forehead....those were the good/scary times.
These existed well into the 2000's...
As a millennial I can argue against this
Or anyone that has gone to Walmart or the dentist
I hated those things, when I was little I could never figure out how they worked
False. Was born in 2000, still had one of those
@ArnoldSchwarzenegrer, I don't like the idea of millennials being teenagers, so I'm going to ignore you're existence
@Tobirama Senju , millennials were born in 82-90 I think
@Tobirama Senju , turn 14 here soon
@ArnoldSchwarzenegrer, so was I hi
You're not a 90's kid unless you jammed a pinky popping one of those off it.
