‘whatever happened to…’ wednesday!Posted: May 25, 2011
Welcome to my brand new feature on the blog… ‘Whatever Happened To…” Wednesdays. As soon as the thought came in my head, I knew I had to do it.
Now, as a foodie, you’d probably expect most of my WHT’s to be about food, but let’s face it, there’s way too many other ‘special’ things out there to ignore. Food will be on here, but I had to start the first one off with this gem.
Now, I was born in 1986, so my childhood years were spent in the 90’s. I hope most others can appreciate some of the fads that I’ve been through, and can sadly admit that they went through them as well (and feel free to email me WHT items that you want to see on here that may differ).
This one featured tonight was a big one for me…and actually talking about old fads kinda makes me sad that this one had to leave, or I had to grow up (who knows which one came first). I’d totally still rock it today if they were around…and wouldn’t be ashamed. At all.
Don’t pretend like you never had/wanted one.
I started off with a dog nano (only because they were sold out of the baby one at Toys ‘R Us at the time) and upgraded to the baby not long after. This was the shiznit for me. Does any of this ring a bell to you?
If your baby pooped, you cleaned it up. Thank you for making me a caretaker so young in life, nano.
Also, very similar, yet not as cool (in my books)…
Sorry for the tamagotchi lovers, but I had friends with them, and even my dog nano kicked a tamagotchi’s butt…and don’t even get me started on how much more awesome the baby nano was than this thing!
And there you have it. The nano. The tamagotchi. Both legends of a pre-teen’s life.
Don’t lie – you liked it a little and also made you wonder where these guys did go.
Now, please excuse while I go dig through old boxes to find my purple baby nano and lime green dog nano (that’s right, I remember their colours). I’m just kidding, because that would be weird and honestly, a little creepy. Plus, like any good kid, I broke my nanos way before their peak.
Rest in peace dear nanos, rest in peace.
*Remember: if you have any (any, any, any!!) old fads/items/etc that you just thought of, email them my way, so I can feature them!
Happy WHT Wednesday!
