I remember being a little girl and every time my grandma went shopping, she would always get Zoo Pals. Zoo Pals are plates that have animal faces on them. As the theme song goes, “They make eating fun.”

Yeah, that’s right, I was a cool kid.  Bobby Jack is a clothing brand featuring a monkey character of the same name. Bobby Jack was created by the illustrator, Han Lim Lee in 2001. The clothing brand was sold by clothing retailers such as JCPenneySears, and Macy’s.  The clothing and character became popular among children and teenagers because of its “snarky messages.”

Do you remember every girl being obsessed with lip smackers? Literally, everyone had one. The first three flavors released were Strawberry, Green Apple, and Orange Chocolate and let’s be real here, we all had a Strawberry one at some point. In 1972 Bonne Bell introduced a flavored lip pomade called ‘Lip Smackers’ and since that first one was launched, the brand has created over 800 flavors.

4. Kim Impossible:

Kim is aided by her best friend and clumsy sidekick Ron Stoppable, his pet naked mole rat Rufus, and 10-year-old computer genius Wade.
