Curled up in your blow-up chair, reading The Illustrated Mum by the light of your lime green lava lamp, your bedroom was your haven.

Before you could even think of planning that birthday sleepover, your Cherished Teddies collection had to be complete, your Beanie Babies in height order and the latest A1 (Ben's fringe, swooooon) poster tacked firmly above your bed. Every girl's bedroom was full of this stuff in the 90's - and we won't lie, ours don't look much different now...

  1. 1 Hama beads

    The wait for mum to iron them was agonising.

  2. 2 Fluffy photo frames

    Full of pictures of your BFFs, your celebrity crush and your pets.

    Collecting enough to fill every window pane in your room was a real achievement.

  4. 4 Spice Girls The Movie - in a limited edition tin

    Which Spice Girl you chose said a LOT about you (it had to be Geri if you were ginger), but if you couldn't decide, the one with all 5 was cool too.

  5. 5 Dear Diary... or a diary with an actual lock and key

    Anyone else stamp so hard the light fixture fell out of the ceiling in the room below?

  10. 10 The entire Jacqueline Wilson book range
    the lottie project

    The Illustrated Mum, Dustbin Baby, Tracy Beaker, Bad Girls, The Suitcase Kid, The Lottie Project... Jacqueline's latest novel was always on your birthday list - she taught you everything you know.

  11. 11 Craploads of smelly gel pens

    Stationery was BIG business at school - so big, we wrote a whole article about it. Berol handwriting pens, Tipp-Ex mice, pen erasers and fluffy pencil toppers were essential purchases.

    Watching them grow was the most exciting thing ever, until your little brother knocked them off the windowsill. Your babies!

    Girl Talk, Sugar, Bliss and Shout were other top choices for quizzes, real life stories, embarrassing confessions and pics of dreamy boys - Peter Andre, sigh.

Oh, and future love rat Ronan Keating's When You Say Nothing At All. Clearly a great year for music.
