I never bothered my hole with this, but everyone i knew loved this muck in the early 90's





Ha! I remember plenty of mornings with multi-coloured vomit thanks to that stuff.

I loved getting hold of these wee bitchin' reflectors out of Frosties. I loved collecting cereal toys




I remember getting shark water squirters in Shreddies. Also there were toys based on some NES games in Sugar Puffs once. I fucking hate Sugar Puffs but used to force myself to eat them so my dad would buy them again, just so I could get the toys. I used to hate it when the toy was in the cereal rather than on the inside of the box. I used to stuff my hand in rummaging around, usually getting cereal everywhere in the process.

The crap cereal toy I really remember is those things where if you move them it looks like the picture is moving slightly, so you would have Colin Hendry stood next to someone and he would make a diving tackle when you moved it, which seemed amazing at the time, but clearly was quite rubbish. I notice Blu/DVD boxes (like Sherlock Holmes) have started using the same "technology" a bit.

When I was at work the other night, I was shocked to discover a box of cereal which had 'a toy' inside! Well, I say toy, it was a cereal bag clip but it was in the shape of a crocodile.

I got wasted on this and Thunderbird on my 13th birthday. I spewed up all over the driveway only to discover next day that where the vomit had landed it had actually intensively cleaned the path. And I wonder why I had a stomach ulcer by 19?

Playing a Play-by-mail football management game


I did that too! Me and my mates were all in a division together so it was extra competitive. I 'managed' Caen, and had John Fashanu who for some reason was fucking awesome and was the league's top scorer. I'll never forget the transfer coup I pulled off when I captured Colin Hendry for 1.5million as well.



Wouldn't have been with Necom games would it? I was Ajax manager and managed to get Hristo Stoichkov for 3m from another manager that was broke!


Yes! That was it, I was trying to remember the name. I used to piss my mum right off with phone calls from people trying to haggle over transfers So geeky, it was quality.


I used to do one of these as well - remember buying (90s) Ronaldo when he was amazing for basically all my money, and he won me a cup and I got a small medal through the post. Still have it somewhere. Now there's something the internet has presumably killed off.


I reckon we should find a decent (free) online one and have an Empire league. Bragging rights FTW.

Those were both great - collected loads of them. Weren't they more an '80s toy than '90s, though?

M.U.S.C.L.E Men were 80s, but Monster in my Pocket were launched in 1990.

I remember M.U.S.C.L.E Men also came in multi-colours, but weren't as good. The weird flesh-tinted ones were the best by far.

I'm a child of the 80s too. However, for me the 90s was GCSEs, A-Levels, UEA and Manchester University, and so this decade holds more significance and is seared upon my memories more than any other time.


Ah, I see. I hated the 90s, the best thing to happen to me was my sister being born in '92 when I was 15. I had a horrible time in and out of school during that decade, they were the worst years of my life. The 00's, though, that's a different story





I went to university with him. He was a cock then too.

I remember trying to play Hero Quest with my old man, and I might as well have asked him to build an internal combustion engine. Apparently a game that had a rulebook 'like a fucking bible' was too much for him
