When Bored Panda reached out to Danny, the creator of the Facebook page “Flashback 90s,” they were kind enough to answer our questions about what inspired the project and what they thought about nostalgia. Read on for the full, exclusive interview about “simpler but unforgettable” times when technology wasn’t as advanced but we were all much more connected.
Danny told us that they started “Flashback 90s” in 2016, which is a long time ago. All of it was done to make people laugh. I thought to myself, “I’d like to share memories from my childhood in the ’90s.” I wonder if other people online can relate to the same things. “And that’s how the page got started and kept going over the years,” they said, explaining what made the great social media project come about.


The person who made the Facebook page thinks that the 1990s were the last memorable time when technology changed quickly but didn’t take over our lives. Unlike now. Tech used to have a lot to do with how people worked together

“Waking up every Saturday morning to eat a bowl of cereal and watch your favorite cartoons is something I’ll never forget.” Getting a new toy at Toys R Us was always an exciting adventure. Those were much simpler times, but they will never be forgotten. We might have cameras on our phones now and be able to record whatever we want, but I can promise you that our old memories are much more valuable. They were honest about how they felt about their childhood. “I think that’s why we like to think about the ’90s and all those fun times in life,” they said.

Bored Panda wanted to know what Danny thought about comparing the 1990s to 2022. “Let’s just say that if I could go back in time, I would go to the 1990s.” Yes, by 2022, technology will have improved and more people will be aware of certain issues, but the ’90s will always be better! “When I think of the ’90s, I think of the Good Times!”


The “Flashback 90s” social media project keeps track of the coolest and most interesting things that happened in the 1990s. From tech to food to fashion to toys, it’s all a big throwback to our childhoods and teen years.

It’s easy to see why the Facebook page has over 279,900 likes. It’s comforting to look back at our old lives and the things we used to like. And it can be a great way to forget about the problems we have right now. even if it’s only for a short while.


A while ago, Bored Panda did a couple of interviews with Kemi Omijeh, a child and teen therapist in London who is a member of the BACP. They talked about nostalgia and how it affects our lives.

“Every night, people watched the same shows at the same time because it was something they could talk about with their classmates or coworkers the next day. When people rented movies, they did more than just choose a movie to watch. It was also a way for friends and family to spend a Friday night together. They said, “Playing video games on the Nintendo was new and fun.” You could go to your friends’ or family’s houses and play the console for hours!”

She said that our memories of the past can help us feel good about ourselves and be healthy. Not always, though.
“The times we often look back on with fondness were marked by important events.” “Perhaps it was when we felt the happiest or safest, or maybe it was when our lives changed,” she said.

It doesn’t really matter what decade or shorter time period we’re missing. What matters is what the time period means to us. The therapist said, “Our memories of the past can change over time depending on how often we think about them and what’s going on in our lives now.”
“Yes, the ’90s were better! But then again, I might be very biased here,” Kemi told Bored Panda, explaining that who we were at a certain time affects how we see it later on.

“In general, the better decade is linked to youth and independence.” We often see things through rose-colored glasses when we think about the past. “How we think about the past ten years can affect how we act in the present ten years.”
A psychologist thinks that our childhoods shape us into the people we are now. We often think about our childhoods, and they shape our lives now. But we usually only look back on our childhood with fondness if we had a good one and felt loved and cared for.

The therapist told Bored Panda, “If we had a hard childhood, it can be hard to feel nostalgic about it.” Instead, it will feel like something we need to get over in order to move on.
“Nostalgia can also be a good way to deal with hard times and bad moods,” said the expert. She did warn that it could be a problem if it got in the way of our daily lives and kept us from being in the moment.
She told Bored Panda earlier, “If we end up comparing it to our experiences today and feeling like nothing is as good as it was, this will inevitably affect our mood and our ability to do what we need to do.”

“We can get stuck in our memories, in which case it might be best to talk to a professional counselor who can help you deal with the past so you can enjoy the present.”

If you find yourself daydreaming too much, you should first try to figure out what makes you do it. “Think about when you usually daydream.” “Is there something about that situation or those times that tells you you’re daydreaming?” If that’s the case, you should do something about it. “Set a time limit, or if you need to, use a timer to make sure you stop,” she said.


“Turn your daydream into a way to think about your goals or visualize them.” Your daydreams could be a way for you to talk about what you really want. “Could you start making plans for how to reach those goals?”
