Growing up in the early 2000’s might actually be a blessing. There are things we simply never forget. Either a toy, a song or just your favorite pair of shoes. Here we’re going to share a list of those things you probably forgot and possibly miss. Celebrities you thought were the perfect couple, songs you definitely had in your iPod and the little feeling of superiority you had when you were the first person among your friends to get a flip phone with a camera.
1. Your pink “Razr” flip phone.
The Razr was the coolest phone you could own. It was super thin, had a front camera for optimal selfies before selfies were a thing, and you could customize the wallpaper with any picture you wanted which was definitely the new thing! Don't tell me you didn't feel cool opening your phone to get a call and not just having to press a button.
Were you Paris Hilton or Reese Witherspoon in “Legally Blonde” with this? All in pink, thin as you had never seen a phone and kinda square. What could be cooler? Of course, nothing. Remembering it, I have to say that it looked like Barbie's phone. It looks like a toy, I mean, not in a bad way but yes It definitely looks as if it was made of plastic.
2. Silly Bandz.
They were actually made as a regular rubber band. However, they were definitely the best bands to play with. They were never just there around your wrist. You couldn't stop playing with, stretching them.
We were fans of untangling the bands after entangled them. It was awesome how they never lost their shape! If you bought a dinosaur, it would always be that. Colorful, energetic, stretchable bandz they were our addiction!
3. Dance Dance revolution.
When this arcade game came out you couldn’t stop playing with it. It was the greatest excuse to go dancing with friends. You played so many times that you even learned the lyrics of each chinese song as well as its dance steps.
You probably even practiced the dance on the floor while waiting for your turn. You were so enthusiastic and happy waiting, that you couldn't avoid practicing on the floor. When the game came out in this shape like a carpet to put in your own living room everyone gone crazy! Remember? The games were not as cool though...
