The POGS craze hit when I was in the 4th grade. I was ALL about playing POGS. If you don't remember them or know what they are. Watch this and then we can move on
POGS was huge in my hometown. I'm not sure about the rest of you but I had to beg my parents to get me new POGS every week. I was so into them that I even bet my Grandpa 50 bucks that they'd never go out of style (I still owe him btw). OR DO I?
Target is straight up cashing in on the nostalgia trend and starting to sell POGS. Don't believe me? Look for yourself!
First thing's first. 29.99 is a total ripoff for that set. Back in the day you could get all of that for 15 bucks tops. MAYBE 20 if you get the good slammers. We all know what the good slammers were. 8 Balls, The Ripper, and Double Slammers were all legit. I was such a little weenie though when I played. I NEVER wanted to play for keeps but of course all the cool kids did it. So whenever I played for keeps I would absolutely freak out. Especially if I lost one of my favorite POGS. Not my proudest moments but they're pure 4th grade me / 90's moments.
You can get them at Target or just go to AMAZON HERE. Or if you're like me and still have your old POGS, bust them out and start playing. Now for some real 90's nostalgia....
Shout out to this kid's grandpa who collected them thinking they'd be worth money. Poor guy
