Back in August I reviewed some disgusting toys from The Trash Pack. OK, they're really not disgusting, and in fact, Rylie and Bryce think they are pretty awesome. To this day, they are still playing with the little collectible Trashies, and they love squishing them in the trash compactor and grinding them up in the trash bin.
Shortly after my review I was asked if I would like to hand out The Trash Pack toys for trick-or-treaters on Halloween, and I thought it was a great idea! After all, kids can only eat so much candy before they start feeling as gross as these guys look, so non-candy treats are always great additions to trick-or-treat sacks.
We don't pass out candy on Halloween because we don't get trick-or-treaters on our street, but I always make up treat bags for the kids' classes. I received a box full of The Trash Pack foil packs, and luckily I had just enough to give a Trashie to each child in both classes. My kids have a lot of kids in their classes!
Each foil pack contains one Trashie inside a little garbage can, and there are over 100 different Trashies to collect and swap. Even though the recommended age on the packs was 5+, I knew that even the three year olds in Bryce's class would love them as much as he did, so I decided to give them to his friends, along with Rylie's.
Of course no Halloween treat bag is complete without candy, so I picked up a variety of candy to put inside the bags along with the Trash Pack toys.
I asked Rylie if she wanted to help me make the bags, and she was so excited! She had a great time filling them up with the toys and candy, and was so methodical about the process. She had quite the assembly line with the Trash Pack toys going in first, followed by the different candies. We then tied off the bags with a twist tie and they were ready to go to school with the kids on Halloween.
Yes, Rylie is wearing Christmas jammies while stuffing Halloween treat bags. That's just how we roll around here.
Rylie and Bryce were so excited to pass out their treat bags with the Trash Pack toys inside of them! When they arrived home from school, I quickly peeked into their sacks and after I got over the sheer amount of candy they had already received before we went out trick-or-treating, I noticed that there were not very many non-candy items. Our Trash Pack toys were definitely the coolest things in the bags!
We headed out for a night of trick-or-treating and as soon as we got home, the kids were more interested in their bags from school than they were the bags full of candy from the mall. Bryce immediately went right for his "garbage guy" and couldn't wait to open it. They were both so excited to find out which Trashie they would be adding to their collection.
All of the Trashies have gross names to go along with their personalities. I believe one of our new ones is "Gross Gargoyle" and the other is "Unlady Bug". They are cute little creatures, don't you think?
These foil packs from The Trash Pack were a big hit with my kids and their friends! And now that the candy is gone (well, going pretty quickly), the kids still have something to play with. They would also make great party favors and stocking stuffers too. You can find these fun, collectible toys at Toys"R"Us, along with playsets and storage cases.
