The Trash Pack Extravaganza

We
were sent a fabulous selection of ALL things The Trash Pack related. A t-shirt to wear, a bag to store treasures,
games to play, a magazine to read, a colouring book to get creative with and
Trash Pack characters to squish and admire in their little dustbins…


My
boys were beyond excited!!! The Trash
Pack seems to be growing in popularity and the increase in related merchandise
goes to show just how much. If your
children are fans of the figures its nice to know you can develop the theme and
include all the other bits too.

Dash
for Trash (RRP £14.99) was an entertaining game from IDEAL; it was simple
enough for both boys to play but quite good fun. You can play with any of your own Trash Pack collectables but it
does come with four figures anyway. I
love how it brings another dimension to your collection, if you have a
favourite already, they can be the piece you move around the board. They are playing it nicely together now, its
quite refreshing seeing them doing this. Gives mummy and daddy a chance to actually talk and unwind a
little without constant refereeing…


Eldest
and daddy made their own game with the Trashie Families Card Game called
“digging in the trash”, I am not quite sure of the in’s and out’s of it, but suffice
to say it kept them out of mischief for awhile. But you can play it following the instructions too. It is a handy pack size to take away on
holiday, so if it rains you have something to keep them engaged.

The
Gross Gang Colouring Book by Parragon with an RRP of £2.99 is good value to
keep fans occupied. With sixty gross
characters to colour, they can hopefully get their grot fix doing that, rather
than spend their time happily informing you they have picked their own nose…

The
trading cards by Giromax were met with enthusiasm, they like seeing the filth
factor scores each of the characters had. 
They used them to play a top trumps type of game, winning the card if
their character was the most stinky, rotten, gross or pukey! Charming I know but boys will be boys!

The
Trashies themselves by Flair are quite individual and cool to own. I like squishing them myself, but the boys
enjoy that they are to do with rubbish and like storing them away in their
dustbins at the end of a play session! 
They have funny names and the boys make up lots of stories about
them. Over 2 million have been sold, so
Trashies are slowly integrating themselves into society, you have been warned…
with 200 to collect it could become an expensive hobbie!

My
son was keen to get wearing the t-shirt straight away, even though it was for
children aged 7 and swamped him a little! 
He thought the design was awesome. 
It felt like a good quality t-shirt and one fans would want to get their
hands on!


The
rucksack by Trademark Collections was snapped up by my youngest. It is on the small side but perfect for him
(aged 4). Just the right size for him
to carry his precious things but not quite big enough for a full time school
bag (with the PE kit, packed lunch and other random stuff they like to stash in
there).


The
selection I was sent has something to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets. Some great pocket money buys with the
trading cards and foil bag trashies. If
your child has not yet been initiated into the world of The Trash Pack, am sure
it won’t be long. Whilst they play you
can explain more about recycling, waste and decaying items – making it an
educational experience too!
