Moose Toys Introduces The Ugglys

The UgglysAustralian toy company Moose Toys has launched The Ugglys, a new line of farting, burping, and trouble-making electronic pets. Each interactive Ugglys pet makes more than 30 rude and hilarious sounds that kids can warp using the tuning feature on the pet’s collar. Available exclusively at Toys “R” Us, each Ugglys is available in three Pug styles and is suitable for kids ages 5 and up.

Additionally, Moose Toys will be expanding its Trash Pack, a disgustingly fun line of garbage-inspired collectibles, Micro Chargers, and Blingles lines. Moose’s other new brands include the Zelfs—a line of quirky, collectible dolls—and Glitzi Globes, a do-it-yourself snow globe range.

The Trash Pack Launches at LaRonde, a Six Flags Amusement Park

trashpack_5Moose Toys’ Canadian distributor Imports Dragon has announced the opening of The Trash Pack Play House at LaRonde, a Six Flags amusement park located in Montreal, Canada. The play house opened last weekend and plans to remain on-site for a two year period. Inside the play house, children can play games to win various Trash Pack collectible figurines, vehicles, and other related products and meet The Trash Pack’s mascot characters.

LaRonde is Eastern Canada’s largest amusement park. The facility, which opened as part of Expo ’67, today offers 40 rides and attractions, including the Goliath, one of North America’s highest and fastest roller coasters, and Le Pays de Ribambelle, an exciting and enchanting family area. More than 25,000 guests visit the park daily, amounting to more than 1 million visitors each year.

Limited Edition Trashie Windfall Illustrates Worldwide Demand for Trash Pack Merchandise

trashpackIf anyone was unsure of just how much demand exists for Trash Pack merchandise, they shouldn’t be now. Lewis Eeles, a 10-year-old boy from the UK, recently made a 155-percent profit by selling his limited edition Trash Pack figure.

Eeles found the limited edition Trash Pack figure and certificate when opening up a new series 3 Trash Pack bin. After doing some research, Eeles placed the character, called Grimy Gold, on eBay. In the last seconds of the auction, the character was sold for about $1964.

“It’s incredible how much this limited edition figure sold for, but it shows just how loved and collectable The Trash Pack is,” says Francesca Lisle, from Lisle International. “The hit of the toy line across many continents is truly remarkable, but our other licensees are also having success.”
