1. Someone whose childhood was significantly influenced by the 1990's.

2. What has become a meaningless term for anyone who remembers their childhood, thanks to overuse by prematurely nostalgic teenagers and young adults.
1. Billy is a prime 90's kid, being born in 1987. His first memories started in 1990 and he became a teenager in 2000.
2. Person 1: "Only 90's kids will remember playgrounds, rock paper scissors, Samurai Jack and hide and seek."
Person 2: "Dude, playgrounds, rock paper scissors and hide and seek still exist. And Samurai Jack isn't even from the 90's."

1. Predominately a term to describe someone who spent a majority of their pre-adolescent childhood in the 1990's. The sweet spot for this definition is people born between the mid-to-late 80's and early 90's. It is often used as a warm, comforting label. This use of the term is also often exploited as a buzz word in clickbait articles, which are written to appeal to the nostalgia of the reader.

2. The term has also more recently been co-opted by slightly younger individuals, and can more broadly be applied to anyone born in the 1990's. (Though people who follow the first definition often disagree with this use of the term.)
1. Greg was born in 1988, and considered himself a real 90's kid. He still has his original Terminator 2 action figures, and used to eat Dunkaroos while watching new episodes of "Batman: The Animated Series" when he was a kid.

2. Steve considered himself a 90's kid because he was born in 1997. Greg did not agree with this, and thought Steve should be considered a "2000's kid," as that's when Steve spent the majority of his childhood.

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."

People who were born in the 1990s or the very late 1980s who were as a child exposed to 1990s children's culture. Many children of the 90s feel that they lived good childhoods and like to share their memories with each other of things like the Spice Girls and similar 1990s stuff. One unfortunate side-effect of a few 1990s children is that they believe they have the ability to define who is and isn't a 1990s child by basically making up their own rules as they go along, for example people born as early as 1985 or as late as 2006 trying to join in, or people born in 1994 saying that the cut off point for a 90s kid is the day after they were born even though they seem to forget that people born in the late 90s grew up over the turn of the century and immediately New Years Day 2000 things were barely different to the 1990s and that you could have believed it was the 1990s up to about 2003. This is unfortunate but if you can remember any of the 1990s and none of the 1980s then you're most probably a 1990s kid, unless you are engulfed in 2000s kid-isms like Ben 10 and similar stuff.

is the term for a grown man who was born in the late 80's or early-mid 90's who thinks that anything new for kids' programming is not high in quality because they didn't grow up with it or because since they're adults then they have higher standards.
90's Kid: Wow! Adventure Time and T.U.F.F. Puppy suck!
Kid: Why?
90's Kid: Because...because...Because they weren't made in the 90's. That's why!
Kid: You're an idiot.
