Growing up as a 90’s kid, toys were a huge part of our generation. The 90’s could arguably be one of the greatest eras for the toy industry. Almost every 90’s kid has had a toy that was a monumental part of their childhood. Most of these toys being action figures of their favorite characters from their favorite TV shows, movies, books/comics or video games. Toys like Superheroes (Or Villains) from Marvel’s Spiderman and X-Men to DC’s Superman and Batman. Or video game characters from Street Fighter, Zelda, Super Mario or Mortal Kombat. Movie characters like Star War’s Darth Vader, Storm Troopers and Han Solo complete with transportation vehicles like the Millennium Falcon. To a whole line of Dinosaurs from the movie Jurassic Park. These were all characters turned action figures that were available for purchase at your local toy store at the time.
