The Trash Pack: Squish Them, Stretch Them and Collect Them

SQUISH THEM, STRETCH THEM AND COLLECT THEM!

The Trash Pack™, a Line of Icky Collectibles Filled with Faux Fungus, Filth and Fun, Launching in the U.S. Exclusively at Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us Stores and Online this Fall

NEW YORK (Fall 2011) – Meet the gross gang from the garbage! Moose Toys introduces The Trash Pack™, a new toy line of icky characters named after all the delights one might find in their trash can. Available exclusively in the U.S. at Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com/TrashPack starting in September, these miniature, collectible figures and playsets range in price from $5.99 to $19.99 (MSRP), and are disgusting additions sure to top kids’ wish lists this holiday season. Customers eager to start collecting can place pre-orders now at Toysrus.com/TrashPack.

With more than 100 Trash Pack characters – aka Trashies™ – to choose from, kids can collect and swap a host of Bin Monsters, Bin-Sects, Hard Rubbish, Grubz, Bin Critters and Bin-Fections with names like Putrid Pizza, Garbage Gull, Germ-Worm, and Mucky Maggot. Each Trashie figure comes in three different colors and is awarded a special status – common, rare, ultra rare, special edition or exclusive – depending on its collectability and how easy it is to find. There are even glow-in-the-dark Trashies, who stand out among their less desirable trash-mates in dark and dingy bins. Children can play games with their Trashies like ‘Take out the Trash,’ ‘Stack the Trash,’ and more.

“Kids love to share and swap collectible toys with their friends, and we knew as soon as we saw The Trash Pack assortment that this gross gang would capture kids’ imaginations,” said Richard Barry, Vice President, General Merchandise Manager, Toys“R”Us, U.S. “We’re thrilled to be the only retailer in the U.S. to offer this exciting, new line to our customers, just in time for the holiday season.”

What makes The Trash Pack even more appealing is the Limited Edition Trashies – King Rat, Trash Cat and Soggy Tomato. A limited amount of these grimy guys can only be found in a selection of packs worldwide!
