Explore the classics from this era and their spin-offs with Gabrielle Moss, an author of books like GLOP: Nontoxic and Expensive Ideas That Will Make You Look Ridiculous, and the features editor for Bustle, as she brings you on a trip down memory lane, where you can explore your old favorites or learn about some hidden gems.
