We love a little bit of nostalgia here at Kidadl!
Although the 80s and the 90s were home to some of the most memorable moments in our history, the 2000s (or the noughties) really revolutionized the world as we know it today. While the iconic scene of the '90s has merited many '90s trivia quizzes and the glamour of the '80s has similarly birthed lots of '80s trivia, we have decided to take a walk down memory lane with these '00s questions and answers.
Read on and let nostalgia overcome you!
