Christmas is almost here and shopping for boys can be a challenge!  Well, this year, The Trash Packs are at the top of their list.  They love them and have been collecting them for a while now!  So, what is The Trash Pack you ask?

The Trash Pack is back this spring with barrels of disgusting fun for kids of all ages!  Featuring brand new orange bins, 168 new collectible Trashies, a new family of metallic Trashies (Astro Trash), and the new special edition Moldy Trashies to collect and trade, Series 2 of The Gross Gang in your Garbage will disgust and entertain new fans and old.  There will also be three new limited edition characters to collect (Grott Rocket, Trash Craft and Trashelite).  Plus, fans will be excited to learn that The Trash Pack products are now available at mass retailers nationwide (unless otherwise noted).  Named to the 2011 Toys “R” Us Fabulous 15 list, The Trash Pack was one of the hottest toy ranges during the 2011 holiday season; more than 15 million Trashies were sold globally as of December 2011.  For more information about The Trash Pack and availability, visit

Disgustingly bright new orange trash cans help kids discover the new Trash Pack Collection.  The Five Pack Collection makes it easy for kids to grow their revolting gang of Trashies.  Containing five small bins, five Trashies, and a collector’s guide for easy reference of all Trashies (including the new characters!), this putrid pack will surely engross kids’ imaginations.  Including a selection of Trashies, kids may even be lucky enough to find a Special Edition furry friend such as Junk Jumper or Sore Berry lurking inside this Trash Pack collection.

New and gross adventures await the Trashies  in two brand new Trash Pack Mini Playsets.  From the outside, these playsets seem like ordinary trash cans, but when kids open them up they will reveal an Atomic Drum Ooze Chamber or a Wheelie Bin Ooze Slide.  Each includes one mini playset and two exclusive Trashies.  Kids can store their Trashie gang, including Atomic Ant or Molecular Mouse, in the Ooze Chamber, or squish Ear Wax Ball, Gutter Grub and their putrid pals through the Slime Chute.  These Mini Playsets will surely not get stale!  Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us.
