Someone stuck in the 90s, a few of them not being from the 90s but into 90s shows and culture. Most 90s kids did grow up in the 90s but don't realize half the stuff they 'remember' is stuff kids from the 2000s also remember. They're stuck in a decade and won't let go of it, for better or worst. Most 90s Kids say everything in the 2000s suck because it wasn't from their generation, and most of the time they haven't even watched said shows that 'suck' without giving any backup to why except it not being from their decade.
Regular Kid: God I really like Regular Show and Penguins of Madagascar.

90s Kid: Those shows suck!

Regular Kid: Have you ever seen them?

90s Kid: No, I haven't, they won't be as good as anything from the 90s.

Regular Kid: Then how do you know they suck?

90s Kid: ....

The 90s kids are probably one of the most annoying people on the internet. They constantly do nothing but talk down to other generations and talk about how the how great the 90s were. They tend react aggressively towards anybody claiming to have watched shows such as Rugrats, Rockos Modern life, or Johnny Bravo. However what they don't realise is that all these cartoons as well as things like Vhs tapes carried on into the 2000s therefore children born in 1997,1998, or 1999 were most likely exposed to these things.
Oliver: Dude I haven't seen Rockos Modern Life since I was 4

Mike: Shut up you're not one of then 90s kids So you never watched that show

Oliver: Dumbass it carried over into the 2000s

A self-administered term which implies that the person thinks the their age group is superior to children of the other decades. Also implies that children of the following decades were not exposed to things such as 90s cartoons and video casettes.
"I just watch an old Disney movie... I'm such a 90s kid."

"You shouldn't have a phone at your age. You should have grown up in the nineties. 90s kids were raised better."

5.
A person born between January 1, 1982 and December 31, 1991 who lived more than half of their childhood (years aged 3-12) in the glorious decade of the 1990s. Some people born slightly before or after that range might consider themselves 90s kids too as long as they can remember part of their childhood in the 90s. This demographic would have enjoyed the golden age of Nickelodeon shows, the Disney Renaissance, Goosebumps books, tamagotchi, beanie babies, and Sega Genesis/SNES and later PlayStation/N64. Kids born in the late 90s are under the mistaken impression that they're 90s kids because they were simply born in the decade even though they have no real memory of living in it.
Ryan was born on January 1, 1987. He's the ultimate 90s kid!
Mike was born December 6, 1997. He thinks he's a 90s kid, but he's not.

Someone stuck in the 90s. They have boyband hair and play pokemon on their gameboy and wear those combat trousers with tassly bits hanging off them, or perhaps a pink camo vest top.
They go on about No Doubt and the Spice Girls. They are quite lame and say things like "radical" and "wicked" in a non-scene kid way, with the occassional "for the win".
Person 1: "I'm really getting into No Doubt, they're so cool, I wish I had hair like Gwen Stefani used to have."
Person 2: "Woah dude you're such a 90s kid."

Anyone who's age was 15 at any time between 1990 -1999. The idea being that the person was, at some time, old enough to take part in the cultural experiences presented by this decade.
At 5 years old in 1995, this person is highly unlikely to have experienced much, if any, of the impact within the decade. Although technically born in the 90's, any personal expression is more than likely not attributed to the culture, and by the end of the decade (1999) would still be merely 10.

With 1995 - 1996 being a median time frame of the decade, a +/- 5 rule to the age of 10 can be attributed to the person.. Any older or younger, and the person falls outside the scope of influence of the decade.

It is the term "kid" that creates confusion. Some people seem to be using it interchangeably with "adolescent". While adolescent is more closely related (in terms) to adulthood, the term "kid" can properly be used to represent anyone under the age of 18 years of age. The use of the word "kid" is by consequence however, as "90s adolescent" just doesn't have the same appeal.

By that conclusion, technically a child born on Dec. 31, 1999 is a "90s Kid", as would the person be born Jan. 2, 1972, each person having lived at least 1 day under the age of 18 within 1990- 1999.

A "90s Kid" was aware and old enough to take part in the culture and influence around them.
