We would be lost without our trusty iphones nowadays. However, do you remember the gadgets we had as kids? Let’s have a look at throwback devices that were a pivotal part of my childhood and many other teens too.

If yours is still alive you’re truly gifted! These little digital creatures taught me everything about responsibility. Looking back on it now it’s like taking care of a child. Plot twist: Tamagotchis have raised us all for parenthood. I remember, I used to check the health meter constantly, the things that made us worry as kids and lure in our attention was questionable looking back!



Aka the grey box, that lays in my room that people look at and question. I had every game under the sun. I used to be in school thinking about all these missions ‘I had to get a finish.’ My favourites were Crash Bandicoot, Rugrats and Formula 1! Classics!


Nintendo DS

I remember getting one for Christmas when I was around 11. I honestly loved it, one thing that I loved about this was the chat feature. Pictochat was honestly my life. Can we forget about Facebook Messenger and bring back Pictochat? My inner Pablo Picasso came out on that thing and of course, me and my friends used to think we were so cool using it. I also did not own a dog at the time, so I obviously treated my Nintendog with complete love and affection, even though it was a virtual game. It definitely guided me to be the huge doggo lover that I am today!

Paris Hilton’s flip phone is now all bedazzled. Soon this would be a Jam. (march, 2003)

Motorola – Razr flip phone

The iconic Razr flip phone was a big part of my teen years. I think the Bluetooth feature exchanging songs with all of my friends was honestly so fun and at the time seemed amazing how this could even be possible. Another thing, I loved was how it would always look so dramatic being able to slam the phone shut whenever I had to hang up. This will truly be an iconic phone as well as my blokia that still comes in handy today for festivals and trips. This phone will forever be my favourite!
