Seriously, the ’90s had some iconic toys.
After learning yesterday that Hasbro will bring back the Mall Madness board game, the toy manufacturer hit us with more nostalgia-fueling news. New retro-inspired Super Soaker blasters and LCD-screen handheld gaming consoles will launch this year, and it’s such a throwback!
Hasbro will reinvent Tiger Electronics’ LCD handhelds, according to The Verge. Four new versions of the devices will be available this fall and, just like the original versions, each handheld will hold a single game. These handhelds are based on The Little Mermaid, Transformers: Generation 2, X-Men Project X, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Each device features familiar controls and monochromatic graphics on the colorful backdrop.
Additionally, three new Super Soakers — NERF Super Soaker XP20, NERF Super Soaker XP30, and NERF Super Soaker XP100 — bring back the iconic look and feel of the original air-pressurized water blaster. (Elementary-school water fights, remember me?) The styling and bright colors strongly resemble the original blasters. Players can fill up the removable tank, pump the handle, and pull the trigger for plenty of nostalgic, water-blasting fun.
