One of my sonâ€™s most recent fascinations is the Trash Pack Collection. We recently received a sample of the Trash Pack Collection to review and theyâ€™ve become his favorite new toy.
The Trash Pack Collection is a collection of five tiny little monster figures called Trashies. The figures come in tiny sealed trash cans, so you donâ€™t know what youâ€™re getting until you open the package.
Each of the Trashies is about one inch tall and made of a squishy rubber material. They have holes on the bottom and will fit on the end of a pencil. They do actually work as pencil erasers, although that is not what they are advertised to do. My son and I figured this out while we were playing with them in my office.
Each of the Trashies figures has its own name and there is a collectorâ€™s guide that shows all of the different figures in the entire series, plus how rare they are. The monsters are kind of â€œgrossâ€ looking, but not offensive, violent, or disgusting in any way.
There are a bunch of different games that the company suggests you can play with your Trashies, but my son likes to use them to make up little stories. He has a kidâ€™s camera and a video camera, so the figures often make an appearance in his photos and movies.
They are about the same size as GoGoâ€™s Crazy Bones, but the fact that we can apparently use the Trashies as erasers for doing homework when he gets sick of playing with them as figures makes these more appealing to me.
The Trash Pack Collection would be a great choice for when you need a small filler item for an Easter basket, Christmas stocking, or birthday party goody bag. They would also be neat to use as an incentive for good behavior if you have your child â€œearnâ€ treats with a chore chart.
