The Trash Pack Garbage Truck is one of the hottest toys for the 2011 holiday season. This Garbage Truck, manufactured by Moose Toys, is a mobile storage device for Trashies and their garbage cans. Trashies are repulsive figures that come with a garbage can that pops open. The Trash Pack is a bunch of grimy, gross figurines that obviously have a garbage theme. They are very highly collectible and are so cool with disgusting names.
The Trash Pack Garbage Truck holds up to 10 tiny garbage cans and the tires of the Trash Pack Garbage Truck even has roadkill on them. Your child can take out the trash with the flipper device on the back to dump trash or they can use the wheelie bin launcher to shoot their Trashies flying. That’s where the fun is. It’s great for kids to flick the Trashies off the dumpster and dump them. With the Trash Pack Garbage Truck, you can put Trashies like Sludge Can and Dead Tyre into their garbage cans so they can ride in the truck.
The Trash Pack Garbage Truck comes with two Trashies, Sludge Can and Dead Tyre, but there are hundreds of other little Trashies characters (some glow in the dark) and games to play with them. Trashies are a members of the Trash Pack and are “The Gross Gang in your garbage.” Trashies all have gross names like Germ-Worm and Mucky Maggot. Some of the Trashies are rare and collectible and others are even limited edition characters.
Other items in the Trash Pack line includes accessories such as a Trashies Collectors Tin, a collector’s carrying case, and numerous packages of collectible figures. (A 12-pack of Trashie figures costs around $8).
The Trash Pack Garbage Truck is recommended for children ages 5 years and up by the manufacturer but it is targeted for boys ages 5 to 8 years old. One warning is that it the Trash Pack Garbage Truck as well as the Trashies collectibles are hazardous for children under three years old due to choking dangers because of the small pieces.
The Trash Pack Garbage Truck product ranges in price anywhere from $15 to $20. This toy is fun, easy to control and is durable. It is great for young kids and the Trashies are fun to collect. If you are looking for a toy that can provide hours of fun and can get them interested in starting to collect things, the Trash Pack Garbage Truck and the Trashies are great or your child. Plus, it is very affordable.
However, if you are looking for a toy or game that is learning based, the Trash Pack Garbage Truck is not really what you are looking for. It does, however, seem to keep children entertained and laughing, having a good time for hours, and sometimes even every day.
