The Trash Pack Series 6 Are Rotten Eggs - Review and Giveaway

Rotten Eggs 5 Pack
The Trash Pack Series 6 (Can You Believe It) is here.  They are “Rotten Eggs” and you can win a five pack in the giveaway right here.  Giveaway details are at the end of the post.
The Trash Pack collectibles are small squishy rubber figures which feature various forms of trash. Each comes in its own container and the containers have varied by series.  For this series they each come in a purple egg.   I have given out single packs of Trashies at Halloween for the last 3 years and kids –  seek out our house to get a Trash Pack for their Trick or Treat.  The Trashies are cute and gross at the same time – that’s why kids love them.  Oh and by the way, they were as popular with the girls as with the boys.



Although some people (like my husband for example) think my office is a chaotic mess, there actually is a very organized order.  My 4 ½ year old grandson, Zach, understands it.  When something is waiting to be reviewed soon, it is on my desk.  It is usually something newly arrived.  If it has made its way to the plastic container or bag under my desk it has “present potential.”  Sometimes there is something on the desk though that is just too attractive to wait....


The other day I received a review sample of the new Trash Pack Series 6 – Rotten Eggs.  Each trashie is in a purple egg.  They are pretty cool.  Anyway, Zach visited and came up to my office.  He went to look over my desk and was immediately taken with the trashies.  He picked up the package and came over to me. Here is our dialogue:




“What's this?” 
“They are the new Trashies and since they are in eggs I thought you would get them for Easter.”
“No – not for Easter.” 
“Well when then maybe for your birthday or the next time Pop gives you a haircut.” 
“I want then now.” 
“Well Zach you can have them if I can take your picture with them.”
“Deal.”


Zach knows there are things in Grandma’s pile of goodies for his next haircut or some other event but he wasn’t willing to wait for the Trashies.  We both couldn’t wait to see what was in those cute purple plastic eggs. 
He quickly figured out how to open the eggs by squeezing them and as he opened each one we would look at the collectors sheet and find the Trashie and learn its name.  There are 6 categories of “Rotten Eggs.  They are:


Categories:                                   Zach’s pack had:
Ancient Eggs-Hibits:                   Bogey Bonfire, Scum Scorcher
Scrambled Animals:                   Doo Doo Bird
Puke Eggs:                                Rubbish Reptile
Hard Boiled Eggs:                       
Limited Edition:
Eggs-Cavated Trash:                  Runny Roach
Eggstinct Trash:                          

Guess which each one is.
