Toys of the Nineties, Pogs!
Click picture to enlarge
Mid-90's, these were milk caps that kids collected, all sorts of designs, kids sometimes had hundreds. you would stack them up face-down with yours and other kids, then you'd take turns hitting the stack with "slammers" - thicker, hard disks, same size as pogs. whatever pogs fell face up when you slammed the stack, you got to keep.

These things were such an odd fad. I remember digging through huge tubs of them with a bunch of other kids at the local craft store so that I could fill one of those platic tubes with them.

oh man, i remember they had pogs (which i think you could get out of walkers crisps packets?)and silly slammers, i was amazingly bad at this game, but my parents bought me tons of them from when they went on holiday as my present and I lost them all in a game. That was really kinda sad actually!!!!!!

my parents got me the "official pog game" which came with 2 tubes of classic pogs to add onto my 6 tubes of regular pogs. i found the coolest slammer ever on the playground at school! it was an orange sparkly poison slammer

I loved pogs! I had a bright green tube for them, and my mom brought me some every time she went grocery shopping.

I knew a kid at school that wore his pog tub in a necklace around his neck... and we thought he was so cool!. I loved pogs, and I have no idea why. The game was stupid.

We had these in my country too: only they were called "hoppies" by the kids (dunno why... O_o). I myself used to own quite a few of them, including those with designs from Dragonball, Mortal Combat, Disney movies and Casper. I still keep some of them :)).

Hell yeah I remember these. I had a few, but my siblings were the primary collectors. My sister had one of the big green tubes. I also remember wondering why everyone was so gaga about the "poison" slammers.

Were those star wars ones and looney tunes ones from crisp packets classed as pogs? they used to clip together, was mental for the actual pogs too

I remember these were a cool thing for a week or two until they got banned at school. Fifth grade for me. My friend and I actually made our own with glued together paper and sold them under the price of a regular one on the playground.

I remember enjoying Pogs back in the mid-Nineties when I was in middle school, and I was enthusiastic to the point that I got into a fistfight over a slammer that had some dumb cartoon thing (I think it was "Life with Louie" or "Bobby's World", but I can't really remember.) As a matter of fact, I still have all of my Pogs, including some do-it-yourself (punch out and decorate yourself) ones that I made with a serial-killer theme.
James - February 03, 2009 - Report this comment
I loved these back in the day, I still have mine. I am actually trying to track down the Star Wars Slammers from the Canada Games set of 1995 so if any one has any Star Wars Pog collections with slammers they want to get rid of leave a message here if you can.
Carrie - April 20, 2009 - Report this comment
Ugh. I remember these things. The pogs we collected were just thick cardboard disks. I wasn't really that interested in them, honestly, and only collected a few because everyone else was doing it.

Chris Akin - September 08, 2009 - Report this comment
I used to have quite a few pogs. I had an awesome slammer that I never let anyone use. I remember these things were so out of hand at one point when our town was still a small town community the local sporting store sold sets of them. Also I remember getting a few from cereal boxes. Anyone trying to make a few bucks by selling me your pogs?

Me and my brothers had huge collections of these. We had these space ship holders from Hardee's or something when Apollo 13 came out and we collected all the slammers. My brother had the coolest slammer and I wanted it so bad. It was metal and metallic purple with a skull with a pink rose in its mouth.

I have one Pog--it's a metal slammer with a blue and black yin-yang symbol on it. I bought it back when Pogs were the things to "must have". It's been made into a necklace now.

I had (OK fine, have) a couple hundred of the darned things but never actually played with anyone. How sad of a childhood... sitting alone in your bedroom playing pogs by yourself! And I wondered then why I didn't have any friends! :)

andrew - October 13, 2012 - Report this comment
does anyone remember these?? It was a small figure with a base. Possibly a knight or something similar. Almost like a warhammer figure. It had a green round base from what I can remember, and you could open up the base and these tiny green rubber skulls/faces? were inside. You could also put these skulls around the base.
