Being a 90's baby and being a 90's kid are two very different things, amirite?

Top Comment

I was born in 1996 and have noticed, when I grew up in the 2000's that a lot of the stuff in the 90's was still going on during that time period. The emphasis of it wasn't as big or exaggerated, but it was still there. I may have not lived through it, but I know some of the stuff that the 90's contained and a lot of that was still there in the 2000's. It isn't even that big of a deal, people freak out over it for nothing.

Most people I know consider 4-year-olds to be officaly "kids". So if you were 4 in 1999, I guess you would be a 90's kid AND a 90's baby.

No, because being a child for ONE year in the 90's and being a child for EIGHT years in the 2000s is not even close. 95ers are 2000s kids.

The early 2000s and the late 90s are distinctively different, no matter how much 90s born teenagers would like to think otherwise. You know, the people who think Lizzie McGuire is the 90s.

There was still late 80s influence in the 1990-1992, but that doesn't mean it was 'still like the 80s'.

My theory is if you don't remember most of the 90's then you don't belong to that decade. So basically late 80's and about 90-92 are pretty much the only "90's" kids. I know the ones that were born after are all like "I remember those shows!" but reruns don't count.

No you are not a 90's kid! Here is your 90's story. With 1990, 1991, 1992, and 1993 gone, you were born in 1994 as a BABY! You were an infant in 1995. You were a toddler in 1996 and 1997. You can't just wave the 1998 and 1999 flag, because TWO years as a child in the 90's is not good enough. You were 6 in 2000, 7 in 2001, 8 in 2002, 9 in 2003, 10 in 2004, 11 in 2005, and 12 in 2006. That's SEVEN years against TWO. You are a 2000s kid, not a 90s kid at all.

You are a 2000's kid. You didn't exist from 90-93, you were a born in 94,
you were an infant in 95, and you were a toddler from 96-97. Sorry, but just being a kid from 98-99 isn't even close. You were still a kid from 00-06. Seven 2000s years against two 90s years, you are a 2000s kid.

Being 4 is being a kid. I guess having been born in '95 could make you count as a '90s kid. Only tangentially, though (you probably wouldn't have any memories from before '97 or '98). If you're 3, though, you're more of a toddler than a kid.

No, it's if you were born after March 31, 1993, you are not a 90's kid. 94ers spent 2 years in the 90s and 7 years in the 00s as kids, and 95ers spent 1 year in the 90s and 8 years in the 00s as kids. You need to be born from April 1, 1983 to March 31, 1993 to be a 90's kid.

Oh my god, how stupid are you? I was born in September '93, so that means that i'm not a 90's child because of a few months? So my cousin who was born in January '93 and, in YOUR logic, he's a 90's kid and i'm not. Really? I remember a lot of those years, the cartoons, the movies, the songs, the boy bands, the toys, ... My brother was born in '89 and I grew up playing with him, with HIS 90's toys (because according to you, I don't belong to the 90's), watched to the same movies and the lived in the same decade. I was 7 in the 00's and I clearly remember of those years, not so much as my brother, of course, but I do. If you have a golden fish memory and can't remember anything, that's your problem buddy, but don't say that I CAN'T REMEMBER OF MY LIFE. I'm also really proud to be a child until 2004, those days had the same 90's vibe, but i was born in the f** 90's! So, again, i was born in 1993 and according to the normal people understanding, that means i'm a 90's kid. BTW - your behavior here shows that you didn't learn anything from the 90's!! You are a shame to the real 90's kid, who don't discriminate.

I think everyone should shut up about it. Who cares? If someone appreciated 90's culture, and watched the shows, and was at least born sometime during the 90's, they're a 90's kid. No one wants to say they're a 00's kid.

The reason why people born from 1993-1999 are so ashamed of being 2000s kids is because of real 90s kids (1983-1992) being smug towards 2000s kids.

If YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, and Amirite started in 1995, and the present year was 2002, we would have 80s kids (1973-1982) being smug towards 90s kids, and people born from 1983-1989 would be ashamed of being 90s kids, and would call themselves 80s kids.

Just wait. In 2022, we will have 2000s kids (1993-2002) being smug towards 10s kids, and people born from 2003-2009 will be ashamed of being 10s kids, and will call themselves 2000s kids.

You are right 93 should count. When we were born most bands like BackStreet Boys and Nsync, and others like them, started their band and as we grew up they became popular. The kids before 93, they count, but most the bands they grew up to, before 93, were bands before the 90s. It should be like 95+ shouldnt count as a 90s kid, they should be counted as a 90s baby.

My theory is that you'd really want to be born in the first quarter to count. If you were born in June 1992 you can be a 90s kid because you actually were alive in all four quarters of the 90s, you MIGHT have a memory or two from the second quarter (ie. late 94) and then have lots of memories from the third quarter and then definitley remember the entire fourth quarter crystal clearly.

As the OP, here's what I think. Anyone from January 1st, 1990 to December 31st, 1999 is a 90's baby, but not a 90's kid. A true 90's kid was alive and creating memories throughout the entire decade. That means that they would have to be at least 5 or 6 when the 90's started. That is why I think I'm a 2000's kid even though I was born in 1994. I turned 6 in 2000 and I have a fairly good memory from that point onwards. What I think of as my childhood was during the 2000's. Now in 2010, I'm clearly not a kid anymore. I have a job, I'm an upperclassman, and I can drive. Even though I have a few vague memories of the 90's, that's not when I grew up.

I don't know about kids now, maybe they dont play outside or talk to people or watch real TV shows, but they're 10s kids. 00s kids, we lived our childhood JUST like you did, with some newer tech stuff and different, not BETTER, music. and we know about 90s stuff. Hey Arnold! went on until I was 7! I watched it and Rockos Modern Life, and Pepper Ann and Recess (although Recess went to reruns about 3 months after I started watching it). I murdered Furbys and Tamagotchis, and I was in LOVE with my Pokemon, and the PokeDex (anybody remember that?). Pogs, i dont remember, but is that bad?

'93 or '94 is a '90s kid. '95 is pushing it; it depends on the person. Yeah, the MAIN '90s kids were born around '87-'92, but the generation isn't limited to them. If you have a good number of memories from the '90s, you count as a '90s kid (not just '99, though, the meat of the decade). I was born in '94 and my earliest memories are from '96 and '97. A lot of my memories from the decade just relate to my family, my preschool life, and my pets, and I'll spare you of those. Culturally, though, I remember hearing '90s music on the radio and on CDs in the car (Sister Hazel, Blues Traveler, Counting Crows, the Gin Blossoms, Uncle Kracker), watching "Pokemon" at my friend's house (I thought it was kind of stupid and a "big kids'" show, though, not one for me), begging my parents for a Furby, playing with Hot Wheels, asking my parents to buy me an original PlayStation after seeing ads for it, etc.

I'm a '90s kid.

The figure I see most commonly cited on the Internet is that "true" '90s kids are ones born from '85 to '94. However, in my opinion you can be culturally '90s without being a '90s kid (this'd be if your childhood was built on reruns of '90s shows and listening to '90s music).

I was born in 1999 and i remeber LOTS of things from the 90s, 80s, and even a little from the 70s. Yes im a 90s BABY but i dont have an Iphone and things like this generation.

When I was little i had a nintendo 64.
Pokemon, courage the cowardly dog, the rugrats, all that, and ed, edd, and eddy, were a few of my favorite shows not to mention the powerpuff girls and scooby doo where are you
I played the orginal mortal kombat and street figther.
My older brother "who was born in 1986" had bull everything.
And yes rememeber the controversy over "ebonics"
I loved the power rangers and toy story.
I ate gushers and fruit buy the foot and lunchables which was pretty much my diet!
I STILL watch VHS movies.
Just because I didnt get to see things live in the 90s doesnt mean I don't remember. I am a 90s baby not a 90s kid but not THAT much changed between the 90s and the early 2000s.

Not much has changed from the 90s and early 2000s? LMAO! If you were born in 1999, you were still an infant in 2000, and were a toddler in 2001 and 2002, and didn't become a child until 2003! So how could you remember the early 00's if you were only an infant in 2000, and a toddler in 2001-2002? LMAO

You are not a 90's kid if you were born in the late 90's, enough said. In my opinion, you have to have been born from '87-92'. I myself was born in 1991, and I remember so much. Slap bracelets, when yo-yos were popular, finishing every sentence with PSYCHE or NOT! Talk to the hand, Surge, the Nickelodeon that was around before Spongebob, when country music became mega popular and crossed into the mainstream, the shootings of Tupac and Biggie. I fully remember nano pets, Furbies and the annoying advertisements for them, when childhood did not revolve around technology or trying to be more mature then what you really are. I remember Fresh Prince, the Power Rangers, and Oregon Trail. By the way, we have a reason to be arrogant. This generation absolutely sucks, and I feel no shame in saying that. We are the last generation that actually had real childhoods, because we knew how to be kids. Do you know how many kids today dress retardedly, all becaue they want to "fit in"? The 90's were relaxed with fashion and music, you dressed how you wanted. Plaid shirts, torn jeans, light up sneakers were all considered to be the cool thing. Plus no Justin Beiber. Long live the 90's!

I've been feeling really nostalgic lately, so I might as well share. :) I was born early 1990 and remember most of the decade. All the neighbourhood kids would go outside and it was easy making friends, we'd play for hours until it got dark. We played games like grounders, four square, nikky nikky nine doors, rode bikes, climbed trees, flied kites, and played video games of course, like N64, Snes, Sega Genesis, Gameboy color & the original game boy, and Playstation 1. Roller blading was popular, skateboarding, grunge music, Nirvana, Spice Girls, flannel, overalls, comfy clothes, and no one cared what you wore. We'd play with super soakers, tamagochis, pogs, pokemon cards, sky dancers, legos, bop-it, skip-it, yo yo's, (etc). I won't even mention the cartoons since everyone else does anyways. :P

The 90s were fun and early 2000s were good too. I'm not saying one decade is better than the other, it's just very different now. I'm sure in 10-15 years todays kids will be looking back on the 2000s with the same rose coloured glasses as the 90s kids have on now.

If cutt off dates are really that important i would say 96+ isn't a 90s kid cuz at least 95ers were little kids in the 90s but old enough to know about toys,clothes,tv&music ,atleast in my case, depends on that person really but personally my "earliest" memories were about 1 1/2-2 yrs old pluss i had older siblings but bottom line in my case my fondest memories are my 90s memories & im verry nastalgic i have a nephew born in 200 so by that i know if i was remebering 90s or 200s reruns i luv the 90s and consider myself a child of that decade and not just cuz i was born in the 90s

95'ers as 90's kids?! LMAO Here is your 90's story. With 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994 gone, you were born in 1995 as a BABY. You were an infant in 1996. You were a toddler in 1997 and 1998. You can't just wave the 1999 flag as if ONE year of childhood in the 90's amounts to something. Then look at you being 5 in 2000, 6 in 2001, 7 in 2002, 8 in 2003, 9 in 2004, 10 in 2005, 11 in 2006, and 12 in 2007. 95'ers are 2000's kids, not 90's kids at all.

I say if we all shared the same 90s culture then there should be no fight about it. The whole thing still carried 'till at the most the late '04. If anything we all pretty much experienced the same old things. Whether it'll be in music, shows, games, toys, movies and so on so forth. Even if the shows were re-runs it doesn't matter cause it was like new to you and watch what those watch who were born in the 90s. Personally I'm friends with people who were born before 1995 in which that's the year I was born in and we all did what can be considered part of the 90s and I'm grateful my childhood was great. There are kids out there who have never watch Rugrats, Recess, Cat and Dog, or owned a N64, or heard of most artists that we know of or had VHS, etc. All I'm saying is don't be down if you were born in the late years of the decade because if you shared as with others who were born in whatever year in the 90s then don't be upset. Hopefully people will understand.

I was born in late '97, and I remember 90's culture in the early 00's. I remember when 90's songs were still popular. My first console was the N64, and my cousin had the PS1. I remember 90's shows like "Fresh Prince of Bel Air". I remember when CD players were still being used.
I remember VHS, and used to love 101 Dalmatians when I was 6 years old. Sure, people born in the early 90's will say that people born from 1994-1999 aren't 90's kids, and they are 75% right, but just because we aren't 90's kids doesn't mean we don't remember 90's stuff. After all, I'm pretty sure people born from 1984-1988 remember some 80's stuff in the early 90's. =)

Also, the 00's years from 2000-2006 were great. 2007 and 2008 were okay. 2009 was the worst year ever. But the first 6 years of the 00's were great, except for Hurricane Katrina and 9 11, but the 90's had it's own issues. (OJ Simpson and Columbine)

You watched re runs of Fresh Prince, and just watched VHS because you were too poor to get DVD. And CDs are still being used today. You didn't exist from 1990-1996, you were born a BABY in 1997, you were an infant in 1998, and a toddler in 1999! LMAO

If you were born after March 31, 1993, you are not a 90's kid.

The cut off date for 90's kids was 1992, and 1993 is sometimes considered a 90's kid. But because Justin Bieber was born in 1994, that is the ultimate cut off year. Sorry, but if you were born in 1994, you're apart of the 2000s ** Bieber generation. I don't care how much you scream, tell me to go ** myself or๏ปฟ whatever...

Nice try, but the things a '94 baby and a '99 baby grew up with are almost a generation apart. The only way I could be counted as a "Justin Bieber kid" is if I grew up hearing his music on Radio Disney, which I stopped listening to by the time I was 11. So I guess by your logic if I were to be born in '88 then I must be a Taylor Swift kid because we were born the same year.

Also the epic troll fest against Bieber is long over, because most have grown up and realised he's just another teen idol that will go away within a couple of years.

In order to be a 90's kid, you need to be born in the 80's.
I was born in 1984, and I'm certainly not an 80's kid, since I could only remember the last 2 years of the 80's, and I don't consider them that memorable.
70's Babies are 80's Kids.
80's Babies are 90's Kids.
90's Babies are 2000's Kids.

1980-1982 are the first group of the 90's Kids, considering that they were legal adults in 2000.

1983-1987 are the core group of the 90's Kids, considering that they were the 13-17 age group in 2000.

1988-1989 are the last group of the 90's Kids, considering that they were preteens in 2000.

Honestly, I agree with you. 1994 is just lumped with 1993 and 1995, not grouped like 1985-1994 or 1994-2003. 1999 is just lumped with 1998 and 2000, not grouped like 1990-1999 or 1999-2008. 1998 is lumped with 1997 and 1999, 1997 is lumped with 1996 and 1998, and so on.

Not really, the things 6 year olds watch vs what 11 year olds watch are very different. In other words, someone born in '99 would still be watching Barney in '05, whereas someone born in '94 would be grown out of that by then.

Yeah, I was born in 99, I'm DEFINITELY a 00s kid. I can't remember any 90s culture, except Disney movies. And I'd just like to say, on behalf of all 00s kids out there....

PLEASE STOP BRAGGING ABOUT HOW GOOD THE 90s WERE?

I mean, yeah, I know you had the Disney renaissance, and there was a load of cool stuff that happened in that decade, but seriously, we get it, you're nostalgic for it. And that's cool! But please, please, don't tell us about it! We don't care! It just makes us feel bad!

Actually, the most annoying thing is when you won't let us be nostalgic over our stuff, because we're 'too young'. That's not really fair. I mean, I don't know about anybody else, but whenever I hear the opening seconds of Bob the Builder: A Christmas to Remember, I immediately cry with nostalgia. And, I don't know if this is a British thing, but there is a wonderful sense of unity whenever somebody shouts 'BOGIES!' in the middle of a library, and you repeat it back to them, louder. And hey, we have Phineas and Ferb!

Fiddie Diddie acts like a douche, not like a 90's kid. I say we vote him in as a late 00's kid, pretty much as bad as you can get. Also, I think the 90's carried over culturally into the 00's a bit, maybe 03ish, so 90's kids aren't much different than early 00's kids. Something went horribly wrong in the middle of the last decade, so there's the gap.

There's a distinctive difference between the late 90s and the early 00s. Example, I would never mistake Lizzie McGuire (2001) for the 90s. The idea that things from 2003 could be considered 90s is a huge stretch.

I was born in '94 and I consider myself a '90s/2000s kid hybrid. I remember my first computer I had when I was 3 and it had windows 95 (of course, we were wealthy enough that we could afford my own computer). I lived in the Northwest and I was around grunge culture all the time, even after Kurt Cobain died it still lived on and still does today to an extent. I seem to remember and grew up with all the same things a kid born in '88 or '89 would remember, so how the hell do I not count AT LEAST somewhat as a 90s kid. Besides the first half of the 2000s weren't that different from the 90s anyway, just more technology. I played outside when I was a kid and still got dirty just as much as I loved my video and computer games. But then again kids still go play outside in Oregon. Portlandia wasn't lying when they said the 90s are still alive in Portland.
I love 90s culture and would give anything to go back. Maybe I'm not a true 90s kid, but I know that I am a product of 90s culture (and even 80s culture due to hand-downs from my cousins) and no one's going to tell me otherwise. And besides, 80s kids are defined as those born between '72 and '84, so why can't I count as a 90s kid?

Ok here's my opinion on this s*. 90s kids are kids who grew up from 90-99 and 00s kids are kids who grew up from 00-09. I say this cause if you think deeply about this, real 90s kids were the kids who actually grew up in the 90s and real 00s kids were kids who actually grew up in the 00s. I was born in 92(deffinatly a 90s baby) and I would say I'm a 00s kid cause that's the decade I fully grew up in . Yeah I remember watching Rocko's modern life and renting VHS and owned a N64 from 96-99, but I don't remember Nirvana or the start of Bill Clinton's term. I like to say I'm a 00s kid cause in that decade I remember 9/11, Bush years, playing outside, starting middle school and high school, getting my first cell phone, the end of real cartoons, getting my drivers license, having a myspace, emo/scene was really popular, rise of smartphones, advancements in technology, that's my f**** decade and I'm proud to have grown up in it. so all you 96ers claiming 90s as your decade just stop and except the 00s. I can't wait until 2023 when 03ers claim they grew up in the 00s, I'm gonna look down on them and say, "No you didn't, I grew up in that decade I'm a real 00s kid and your a 10s kid."

I agree. I was born in 81 but don't really consider myself an 80's kid. I remember the 80's well but the 90's were much more significant for me. If you're born in the 90's, you really aren't a 90's kid. You're a millennium kid. Even if you were born in 90 you were still in single digits by the end of that decade. Not even human yet.

The 90s culture lasted until about 2002 or so; the core of the '90s, the years unquestionably free of 80s or 00s influence, were 1995-1998. I think to be a 90s kid you have to have some good memory of the 1995-1998 period. Therefore, I think that the last true 90s kids were born about 1993, with 1994 and maybe early 1995 being either/or years.

I would call, with some degree of person-to-person variation (these are averages)

Born 1983-1985 - Early group '90s kid (predominantly '90s kid, but some '80s influence)
Born 1986-1989 - Full '90s kid
Born 1990-1993 - Late group '90s kid (predominantly '90s kid, but childhood carried on into the 2000s)

I was born December 25, 1992.

I was born in late '97 so sure yeah I'm not a '90s kid just a '90s baby/toddler or whatever. But what does that mean I'm NOT ALLOWED to embrace '90s culture? Listen to all the '90s bands like blur and oasis? I can definitely listen to the Blur album "13" because at least I was alive for that one (it came out in March '99). Allowed to wear flannel shirts and wear my hair curtained? Of course I bloody am. My older brother was born in mid '91 and he gets all arrogant and protective about the '90s thinking it's his decade when I was born in it as well. Yeah sure I'm a noughties kid (2000s kid) but that doesn't mean I can't look at old '90s photos of me in like '98 or listen to old '90s bands as a '10s teen. So Fiddie Diddie and all those other bellends get a life and move on. Do I wish I could have experienced more of the '90s? Course I do! In fact I wish I could have been born in 1978 so I could have been a '90s teenager/adult. And finally let me just get something straight, you early '90s pricks ARE NOT the judges of what passes to be a '90s kid so stop thinking you are. So yes, the '90s were great but they're over so let's just move on and get ready for the 2020s or something.

Personally I was born in 1994 and here's my opinion on the subject. I had several older cousins who were born in the 80s that I was very close with as a child. I also grew up in a town where trends were 2-5 years behind places like New York or LA. Maybe I am more of an 00s kid, who knows? Does it matter? Most of my childhood was in the first half of the 2000s, which were not a bad time to live in. I would consider 2001-2005 to be the 90s hangover era, where people were still trying to catch up after all the hype and blind optimism built around the new millennium went away with Bush and 9/11. I should also note that I grew up with culture of both eras. And I very explitically remember listening to Limp Bizkit and Rage Against The Machine with my 13 year old cousin in 2000.
Even if I'm not a true 90s kid, that doesn't take away the fact that most of my favourite music, TV programmes, films, etc. are from the 90s and do bring back a nostalgic feel for me. I'm also not a 60s kid, but I enjoy the music from that era a lot, probably because the 60s and 70s were the inspiration for most of the 90s counter-culture. My favourite bands are grunge, which I did hear a lot growing up, but of course what 4 year old would understand why Nirvana is so great?
People born around 92-95 to me would be considered Millennium era kids, which is special in it's own way. 1997-2005 was a great time to grow up.

Why do you guys keep saying that the "90s culture lasted until 2005"? No it did not! 90s culture ended with 911. That distinctive, laid-back feel was uniquely 90s and early 00s. When the terrorists hit us, we lost that. And that was that!

I love how people exaggerate 9/11, as if everything changed overnight. Or as if that's the only terrorist attack to ever occur in the US. What about Oklahoma City 1995? Or Waco '93? Terrorism was there in the 90s, albeit it was not focused on as much as it was in the 2000s. Trends don't change overnight either. In my town it was still very common for people to listen to Matchbox 20 and the Goo Goo Dolls as late as 2005. Changes like these are gradual, they don't just happened at the snap of a finger. And to me 2004 seemed a lot more laid back than life today in 2013. That's why I say 2002-2004 was like 90s-lite.

I think on this matter, where you live has a lot to do with your experience. Maybe in the Northwest 9/11 didn't change much, but here on the East Coast, are you kidding me? It was like the world was flipped upside down, and yes, the change was overnight. Unlike those other attacks you mentioned, 9/11 was the first time since Pearl Harbor that a foreign power hit us on our own soil. That really shook the US to its core and made us fear that our nation wasn't as powerful as we thought it was. The 90s had a distinctive laid back feel because we had a great pres (Clinton) that kept us out of war and kept our economy strong. In 2000, GB was elected, and with that, all of those things went out the window. For me personally, the period from 9/11 up until around 2004 or so after the Iraq war was going strong, felt like a very hostile time in the US, with people distrusting and fearing Muslims and others who were not like them, and adopting an "us vs. them" mentality. This just wasn't the case in the 90s. The 90s had more of an "everybody get together" vibe, while this period had a "stick with your own kind" mentality. At least where I'm from anyway.

To me the whole post-9/11 vibe didn't show up THAT quickly; tv and films are made well in advance, so the change isn't as noticeable until late 2002/early 2003.
Remember, Rome wasn't built in day.

Let me explain cause most of you guys don't have it right. I was born in 84, so that makes me a 80s baby. I grew up on late 80s and 90s (90-99) tv, toys music, style etc. That makes me a 90s kid, not a 90s baby. I don't remember any songs in the early 80s, I don't remember their toys or styles. Just because you were born in the 90s, that does not mean you grew up on 90s style, you grew up on 2000 and up style and music. Most of y'all who claims y'all grew up in the 90s just because y'all were born in the 90s don't remember the Rodney king beating, L.A riots, walco burning, Oklahoma City bombing, Versace, Diana, OJ Simpson trial etc. so that does not make u a 90s kid. I was born in 84 and don't remember bob marley or Marvin Gaye's death, so I'm not a 80s baby. Stop trying to be old young kids and let life takes its course. Yes the 70s, 80s and 90s were the best, but don't claim you grew up in the 90s just cause you were born in the 90s

I was born 94, I can remember remember everything 90's because I had two older siblings, one born 89 and one born 90.....sothe environment I grew up in was very 90's I can recall every show, such as "cooper", "living single", "kablam", "rockos modern life", "family matters" "nicks version of doug to disneys version of doug" "beetle borgs" "nick@nite".......etc so to me I will always consider myself a 90's kid

This is what drives me crazy. Why do care if others label you? If you wanna be a 90s kid be a 90s kid. If you feel like an 00s kid then be that.

Hell- if you were born in 94 but love surf music and the rat pack call yourself a 60s kid!!!

NO ONE HERE CARES!!!! Those who do care are trolls trying to start a fight about it.

Thing is no one of my generation would give two shakes if called myself a 70s kid or an 80s kid (I was born in '77) because being defined as either does not pay the rent or put food on my table.

There is nothing to debate here just go be what you want to be and stop trying to fit in a specific box and stop seeking approval from others.

Own the label of your choice!

Here's my position on the issue. As a person who was born in 1992, I consider myself to be a 90s kid, but JUST BARELY. The prime of my childhood I consider to have taken place from 1997 to 2004. That's about equally 90s and 2000s. Many of the best things culturally in the 90s I was too young to appreciate, but what stands out most to me was the great kids television programming of the era. Nickelodeon, Disney, and Cartoon Network were all great back them, and this was special, because prior to these networks, children didn't have much of an outlet for entertainment. These networks brought relatable characters that could help kids going through tough times feel like they were not so alone. The 90s were really the last decade before the Internet moved from just being used for business to being used for entertainment, and thus, we were the last group to have a pre-Internet childhood. No offense to anyone born later on, but the difference between having that simple childhood experience and a childhood greatly influenced by technology is quite pronounced. Everything is now available at these kids' fingertips, and they just don't appreciate the simple things as much.

Otherwise, I remember the overall laid-back vibe of the decade, and some of the kid-friendly music toward the end of the decade (boy bands, girl groups, etc), but that's about it. The best years of my childhood were definitely in the early 00s (the aforementioned things were still going strong during this time)

Now, to all of you saying that the 90s really went on until 2005 or so, NO THEY DID NOT. The 90s ended, culturally, with the election of GB and 9-11. These events were culturally 2000s and what really began the security-crazed feel of that decade. The terror attacks, the wars, the sharp political divisions, gay activism, craze with everything being big (think, Hummers, McMansions) are all uniquely 2000s.

Here's how I'll divide up the decades

Last gasp: 1963

Last gasp: 2011
2010's
First signs: 2007

Last gasp: TBD

First signs - The year in which the first cultural trends that would define the new decade appeared.

Full swing - The first year in which the culture had changed enough to have its own identity independent of the old decade.

Quintessential year - The year that seemed to be the most representative of the culture of its decade.

Beginning of the end - The first year in which the culture of the decade didn't seem as authentic as it used to.

Last gasp - The year in which the last cultural holdouts of the old decade disappeared.

That's interesting. Why do you have the 90s influence lasting so long after it ended, but have the 2000s ending just one year after it "officially" ended? What criteria do you have for determining when and what cultural trends defined the decade and when they began or ended? This is a highly subjective matter.

A lot of fashion trends from the late 90s lasted as long as 2003/2004 in most cases. Urban pop, pop punk, and nu metal that were common in the first half of the 2000s were all carry overs from the late 90s, the only difference is that it wasn't until later on that most of those genres became more commercial. As I said before, there was still a lot of new music, tv shows, and films made before 9/11 that were released throughout 2002 and early 2003. The 2000s were a very 'mashup' type decade anyway, so it's hard to say what is and isn't 2000s culture, because most of it is just blatant copies of stuff that came before. The 90s to the 2000s are like the 60s to the 70s.

I think most of that is a matter of opinion. I could argue that urban pop, or mainstream white artists performing music with black influences, began as early as the 50s with Elvis singing the blues. Many of the things we associate with the 90s are actually rehashed trends from earlier decades. But I will agree that the 2000s was a decade with mixed influence in its trends

Fair enough, the 90s did sort of start the whole mashup feel that lasted into the 2000s and even today. To me, the reason I would put 2011 as the end of the 2000s is that by then everyone has smartphones (their popularitystarted around 2007-08, with the release of the first iPhone) and things like LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem, My Little Pony 'brony' fad, Adventure Time, Regular Show, Netflix on tablets and phones, and the revival of TV dramas (e.g. Breaking Bad, Walking Dead), are all very much part of early 2010s culture. Electropop fads started in the late 2000s but is still going strong today, and will probably be more associated with the 2010s rather than the 2000s. The whole urban pop/hip hop type music with slower temps and dirty south influence is mostly gone and not as popular as it was in 2005.

Why is it that if someone born in the early 90s says this, they get thumbed down? Everyone knows it's true, but I guess they don't want to hear it from certain people.

I think it's funny that a lot of these kids think they're 90s kids because they were born in the mid-late 90s and they claim to have many memories about that decade. A 90s kid is someone who spent his/her childhood in the 90s. You'd have to be born the 80s or early 90s to be a 90s kid ie 1990, 1991, or 1992. 1993 is pushing it barely making the cut but 1994-1999 means that you are a 2000s kid because all your childhood memories took place in the 2000s and are still happening today because you were babies and toddlers at the time. Not kids. To be a kid you have to be at least five years old because five year olds are old enough to be in school. By the end of the 90s beginning of 2000s you were starting school. If you were born in the mid-late 90s your memories from the 90s are watching reruns of 90s tv shows or knowing somebody that was around at the time who was old enough to remember things

I was born in 1994, but I don't really like to call myself a 2000s kid. The early 2000s yes, but by the time 2005 rolled around I was in middle school, and by 2008 high school, so I feel more like a teenager of the 2000s and early 10s. To me kids who grew up in the early 2000s are different from those who grew up later in the decade, mostly because the early 2000s were very different from the latter half of the decade, and still had a vaguely 90s vibe up until 2002/2003, and a lot of late 90s fashion stayed fairly popular until 2004/05.
I guess I'm technically late 90s/early 2000s kid, but what does it matter? The 90s are still my favourite decade, even if I wasn't old enough to fully experience them.
I know some people who were born the same year as me that don't remember anything before 2000, or even 9/11. I have somewhat clear memories from as early as 1997.
The whole 90s kid label is just stupid, if you were born in '98 but like 90s better than today, call yourself a 90s kid. Why does it make you any better or worse of a person? My mum was born in the late 50s, but I don't hear her discussing how she's a 50s or 60s kid with others her age.

The last year of the early 2000s was 2002. 2003-2007 were the mid-2000s. You were still under age 13 throughout almost ALL of this time. So how on Earth is it that you don't identify as a 2000s kid?

What's more, the teenage years, while not technically part of your "childhood", is still a period of growth and development. So even if you are a 90s "kid", if your teens were in the 2000s, you typically still identify with, if not even more so, the era in which you were a teen. It's funny that in this debate, the people arguing were all very young in the 90s. Most people identify with the era when they came of age.

That's true. But most teens nowadays are into the whole 'retro' fad, which makes them not want to identify with the era they live in. I kind of feel the same way however, I really should've been born in the 70s, that way I could be a teen in the grunge era.
The reason I don't identify as a 2000s kid is because I feel different compared to those who spent ALL of their childhood in the 2000s (i.e. those born between 1996-2000). The core years of childhood are ages 6-10, which for me were 2000-2004. I don't really identify with those who experienced those ages later in the decade. As I said before, I'm a late 90s/early 2000s kid, and 2003 could be considered the early 2000s.

I would say if you're born between 1982 and 1991, you are a true 90s kid. My reasoning behind this is that childhood is from ages 4 to 12, with 8 being the median age. Basically, whatever decade you were 8 years old in, you're a child of that decade. 1992-1995 births are early 2000s kids, which could be sort of counted as '90s kids' because the early 2000s were part of the millennium era, which began in 1998 and lasted until 2003, and still felt pretty 90s-esque.
There's nothing wrong with being a 2000s kid either, I enjoyed a lot of stuff in the 2000s up until 2006, then suddenly things got crappy for me, but that's just my opinion.

What's the big deal if ur a 90's kid?
My opinion (and i don't care if u disagree)
If u were born in the 90-99 ur a 90 teen/kid/toddler/baby and/or fetus. If u were born in the 90s, then ur a 90's whatever, whatever u r. I mean who cares if they grew up in the 2000. I conseder them a 90's whatever they r born in the 90's.that counts. Thats y it's called the 90's.

I was born in late 1992 and consider myself a 90s baby and a 90s kid. I grew up in the late 90s and early 00s. Also, many of the things 90s kids experienced were similar to what 90s kids experienced. For example, I have an older brother who was born in late 1985. He is an 80s baby b/c he could only remember at most 1989, and that was the year the 1990s wanted to come out of its shell. I did not start to develop until 1996-1997, when I was about 3 or 4 years old. Now the 90s were a pretty cool decade. It was the decade when TGIF & SNICK were dominant. My brother started watching this in 96, when he was 10. I did not start watching this until the following year. TGIF ended in the late 90s, but SNICK stayed until early 00s, the time when I was still growing up. So I consider myself a 90s baby and 90s kid, as I was still 6 in 1999, but I also consider myself a 00s kid as well as I was still growing up in the first half of the decade. But I still remember watching pre-1990s show in the late 90s and early 00s, such as The Cosby Show, Three's Company and Three's a Crowd, Growing Pains, Family Ties, Different Strokes, The Brady Bunch, Get Smart, Happy Days, All in the Family, The Jeffersons, etc. Even though those weren't 90s shows, I still watched it and it made me feel like I was being raised in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, even though it was the early 00s. I know that the today is not as good as the good ole days of the late 20th century, but 00s babies and kids are not to blame for this. They just sort of got wrapped up due to so much going on at one time. So that's my opinion, and does not have to be anybody else's opinion.
