The 90s Toys & Games

Hit Clips

HitClips is a small, palm-sized digital audio player created by Tiger Electronics in 1999. It wasn’t known for its advanced quality. HitClips played low-fi, one minute clips of popular 90s songs. It was promoted by McDonalds, Disney Radio, and Lunchables. Because of its access to songs by artists like *N SYNC and Britney Spears, HitClips was a massive economic success, making Tiger Electronics approximately $80 million in 1999.

Despite its economic success, HitClips was met with mixed and poor reviews. Many saw it as a waste of money given that you could only listen to a minute of music that was exceptionally difficult to hear. Still, many kids owned HitClip, and there was a time when you couldn’t step into someone’s room without stepping on a misplaced clip.
