Families were encouraged to play with the toys in-store where they received a free gift with any Trash Pack purchase.
“We are thrilled to announce to kids and collectors nationwide today that Series Three of The Trash Pack is now available at Toys“R”Us stores and online,” said Tamara Stewart, Vice President Marketing & Strategy U.S., Moose Toys. “The brand is a huge success across the world, especially in the United States, so we naturally wanted to celebrate the launch of the much-anticipated third series at The World’s Greatest Toy Store® – Toys“R”Us Times Square!”
Series Three of the immensely popular gross gang from the garbage features bright blue garbage cans, color-changing Trashies, five Limited Edition characters, including Grimy Gold, Trash Cash and Rott Vault, and a new family of ultra rare Wall Crawler Movie Trashies that stick to the wall and are inspired by all the disgusting delights one might find in a movie theater. With the addition of 173 new Series Three Trashies, there are now over 500 Trashies for fans to play with and collect.
The Trash Pack dump truck will visit the Ronald McDonald House® New York on Sunday, October 7 for another special delivery. The Trash Pack crew will unload boxes of donated Moose toys from the truck and provide entertainment for the children and their families. The organization provides temporary housing for children battling cancer and their families while the child receives treatment at one or more of 13 nearby partnering hospitals throughout the city. Ronald McDonald House® New York is the largest facility of its kind out of more than 300 worldwide.
The Trash Pack was named to the Toys“R”Us “Fabulous 15” list for the 2011 holiday season and is predicted to top holiday wish lists again this holiday season with the unveiling of the third series. Moose will continue the Series Three excitement throughout the fourth quarter via social media and retail promotions, including a market wide launch in December.
