Instagram filters were built on a love of the “vintage” aesthetic, where your pictures look as though they belong in your parents’ old photo album; one even used to include a Polaroid-like mask. And now, for a limited time, you can snap these types of photos in an actual Polaroid instant camera that's a blast from the 90s past. The company is re-releasing a special edition of its traditional 600 Polaroid camera.

Called the 96 Cam, it takes the shell of the iconic vintage device and covers it with a delightful 90s nostalgia design. The colorways feature two palettes. One is Fresh Blue, an homage to neon with pink, yellow and aqua hues. The other is called Jazz Red and includes a vibrating combination of the primary colors. Both are adorned with motifs that’ll take you back to the days of dial-up internet and Dunkaroos.

The 96 Cam is only available in “strictly limited quantities,” and it appears as though both Fresh Blue and Jazz Red are sold out on the Polaroid website. For now, there are still some available through Urban Outfitters.

Can't get enough of 90s nostalgia? Check out the Polaroid 96 Cam, which is a redesign of the company's 600 Camera.

They come in two colorways: Fresh Blue (above) and Jazz Red (below).

Look how well the Fresh Blue fits in with a Furby:
