5 Things Your Future Grandkids Won’t Believe Were Real

There are some things from the recent past that are so ridiculous that we almost don't believe they really existed. In 25 years, though, they'll seem even more unbelievable. Here's our list of 5 things we'd like to put in a time capsule, so we have proof that they were, in fact, real.


The Laser Disc


The size of a vinyl LP, and only capable of holding one hour of a movie on each side, these things were gigantic, inconvenient, and easily ruined with the tiniest scratch.




"Wait, so it was like a cell phone, but you couldn't actually talk to anyone?" Beepers were essentially useless, unless you were a doctor, but they were also like, $1.99/month, which was pretty great.


Cardboard Car Sun Visors


What happened to these? Are car windows made with UV protection now? Seems like only yesterday that the mall parking lot was a sea of Garfield, Alf and Ninja Turtles. Remember how ratty and faded they always were?


Pacifier Necklaces


With roots in raver culture, the pacifier necklace trend spread like wildfire in the 90's, and elementary school students wore their entire collections around their necks, like warrior medals. What the hell was that about?


Tiger Handheld Games


Never, ever fun to play, but we bought them anyway? Once the batteries died, they usually went to the bottom of a drawer for the rest of eternity. Seriously, check the bottom of your mom's junk drawer next time you're home and you'll find the Batman one.
