I wrote about The Trash Pack a few weeks ago, a new toy craze that has taken the U.S by storm. Named after all the delights you might toss in a trash can – Smelly Sock, Germ Worm, Scum Gum, Stale Bread, Sour Snail, Putrid Pizza, etc. – this garbage-themed line of toys for kids was created by Moose Toys, an Australian toy company.
We recently added the Trash Pack Garbage Truck to our growing Trashie collection. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to store the Trashies and trash cans when the girls aren’t playing with them. There’s room for up to 10 of the small trash cans, or a few of the bigger ones. The trash cans are a big selling point when it comes to The Trash Pack, so it’s great that you can incorporate them.
The truck is mobile, so kids can roll it along the floor like any other toy car, but it also has some cool features! Like a real garbage truck, this one has tip ‘n flip action that allows you to dump your Trashies into the back of the truck. You can even set your Trashies on the top of the wheelie bin and launch them off. The doors of the truck open up and have little points to display the Trashies. Maya has this open on her desk when she’s not playing with it. There are seats in the cabin for a driver and passenger… and the truck comes with two exclusive Trashies, Sludge Can and Dead Tyre.
One important thing to keep in mind is that this garbage truck is for kids ages 5 and up. Ours has been thrown around a few times by the girls and their friends, and the doors have popped off here and there. While it’s easy to stick them back in, it’s not made to withstand the rough treatment which toddlers are known for. Trashies can pose a choking hazard to children under 3, anyway, so they shouldn’t play with this line of toys at all!
That said, with the Trash Pack Garbage Truck, your kids can have some seriously gross fun taking out the trash! Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us, this is one of the hot toys this holiday season, and well-priced at under $20, so don’t be surprised if you have a hard time finding it in stores! Santa can always leave an IOU, no?
Giveaway has ended.
There are hundreds of Trashies to collect and trade, each with a level of rarity: common, rare, ultra rare, and limited edition. For example, there are only 500 of the limited edition Soggy Tomato Trashies in the entire United States… so odds are slim that you’d find one, right? Think again. A lucky TDB reader is going to win one! What would your kids think if you won them one of the rarest Trashies there is?
To enter to win, please share in a comment below the best soggy tomato dish you can think of. Get creative! I make a pretty good soggy tomato pie, I must say.
A winner, chosen at random, will win the sought-after Soggy Tomato Trashie, along with a Trash Pack two-pack, which includes one large can, two Trash Pack characters, and one collector’s guide for easy reference of all the Trashies.
