Do you know that budol-prone TikTok sound? It’s the one that goes, “I now have access to adult money, which means I can buy whatever I want, which means I end up buying sh*t like this.” This trend falls under the #AdultMoney TikTok hashtag, where users come on and showcase years-in-the-making purchases that are probably just as fun as they are impractical. With over 4 billion views under the hashtag, it proves that everyone doesn’t want to stop having fun at 18. 

In fact, life may be even more amusing for our inner child with a little extra purchasing power. Just take it from the BrandRap team – we ended up talking about our own purchases, and we went from long-time passions like Marj’s books and art materials, to nostalgic fan memorabilia like Julian’s Pokemon plushies, to childhood gaming goals like my remastered God of War game or Saab’s special edition Nintendo Switch.

Whether we’re five or 50, there’s always those things in our wishlist that never get old. So, In the name of nostalgia, we asked the adults of the internet about one memorable item they’ve bought for their inner child.

Yakult (a lot of it)

5 packs ng Yakult. ✨ Dati nagpapabili lang ako sa parents ko, ngayon hindi na. Kaya ko nang makabili dahil may work na ‘ko. 💖 (“5 packs of Yakult. Before, I used to ask my parents to buy them for me, but not anymore. I can buy them myself because I now have work.”)

Family Computer

Instagram user @itsamadzworld09 shared that her purchase was the retro classic plug-and-play, Family Computer. With any gaming console, it always felt like our parent-designated screen time was never enough when we were kids, right?

Gundam models

Along with Tamiya figurines and airsoft blasters, Facebook user Joselito T. Jacinto shared that he now buys some Gundam models, which remain ever iconic. Nothing feels more like a childhood in the 70s and 80s than mecha anime.
