The ’90s was a wonderful decade to be alive. There were all types of gadgets and other creations that were all the rage back then but are not so popular now. Take for example Hit Clips, why were people scrambling to get a hold of keychain music that only lasted one minute? That was just one of the items that are synonymous with the ’90s, wait until you see the rest because you’re going to lose your mind once you see item number nine!
Everyone Had A Discman
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t own a Sony Discman in the ’90s. 1991 was the first year that more CDs than cassettes were sold and the electronic industry needed to keep up. The Discman (Sony later changed the name to CD-Walkman) first hit the market in 1984 as the first portable CD player and was the next generation from the Walkman, Sony’s portable cassette player introduced in 1979. 200 million Walkmans were sold, and Sony continued to revolutionize how people listened to music. The CD-Walkman was so popular, it gave the music industry a huge boost, as artists saw CD sales rapidly increase.
