Top 10 Things Gen Alpha Would Most Likely Be Nostalgic About

The Top Ten
1 Baby Shark - Pinkfong

It's no surprise since it's the most viewed video on YouTube, even surpassing the world's population. It's a kids song released in 2016 but climbed up in relevance a few years later after its release. Not only kids but adults would join the trend imitating the dance moves.

2 Minecraft

Minecraft is one of the most mentioned video games when it comes to Gen Z nostalgia. Due to its continuous release dates and spin-offs it would probably sum a huge part of Gen Alpha's childhood and possibly future generations later on.

3 YouTube Kids

Not only the kids videos in general, but due to the amount of Elsagate videos flooding the platform, this is definitely one of the apps that would stick into Gen Alpha's memories because of its obscene content potentially traumatizing some of the children using this app.

4 ROBLOX Roblox Corporation is an American video game developer based in San Mateo, California. Founded in 2004 by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel, the company is the developer of Roblox, which was released in 2006. As of June 30, 2021, Roblox Corporation employed 1,234 people.

Most of Gen Z are familiar with the platform and is even considered nostalgic by a few late millennials due to it being released in the mid 2000s. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ROBLOX peaked in its activity in 2020 and may continue to stay relevant today alongside with minecraft.

Well still, Gen Alpha is still very young (people who are younger than 9.5 years old), so they don't have an image, or much feelings for nostalgia as Gen Z does yet.

5 TikTok

TikTok especially peaked during the COVID-19 pandemic and would possibly continue to be relevant until another social media platform replaces its popularity. With the amount of kids and teens being on TikTok it's no doubt that it would be talked about in the future, especially challenges originating from the platform.

6 Cocomelon

Currently it's the most subscribed kid's YouTube channel. So long if continues to be relevant it can sum a large part of future generations' childhood memories.

7 Dream (YouTuber)

Despite his personality outside YouTube, most people root for his content along with his associates, it's pretty predictable that dream could be mentioned a few years later even when the limelight starts to fade off from him.

8 Among Us

It peaked in the mid-late year of 2020 and is still a bit relevant today. Who knows it could be much more relevant if Among Us 2 was to be released?

9 Friday Night Funkin'

It became prevalent right when Adobe Flash Player died out in 2020 which continued to be relevant until mid-2021. Although its relevance has stooped recently, we might see a resurgence from more people talking about it years later.

10 Fortnite: Battle Royale

Not a surprising fact due to its popularity as a battle royale game. A lot of kids still do play this game to this day.

The Contenders
11 Zoom

Totally forgot to add this one (thank you to whoever included this here). Pretty much every gen alpha person used zoom during the pandemic, which is unfortunately daunting for some. If anything, zoom would definitely leave a bad memory on some, or otherwise depending on their experience.

12 Fidget Spinners

Fidget Spinners pretty much peaked back in may 2017, but died quickly in the next month so it would probably be a vague memory for some. Nevertheless a fair portion of Gen Alpha would remember these addictive toys.

13 Rick and Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Gen Alpha ain't even old enough to watch this yet!

14 Gacha Life

It got pretty relevant starting in mid-2019 and 2020 so it's pretty popular among gen alpha right now.

15 Five Nights at Freddy's
16 Overwatch
17 The Owl House The Owl House is an American animated fantasy television series created by Dana Terrace that premiered on Disney Channel on January 10, 2020. The series stars the voices of Sarah-Nicole Robles, Wendie Malick, Alex Hirsch, Tati Gabrielle, Issac Ryan Brown, Mae Whitman, Cissy Jones, Matthew Rhys, Zeno Robinson, and Fryda Wolff.
