Garbage Pail Kids

Garbage Pail Kids

Gross and offensive trading cards for kids that became a big hit in the mid 80's. The cards depicted children that looked like Cabbage Patch Kids and had amusingly rhyming names such as Fartin' Martin and Adam Bomb. The pictures on the trading cards then showed outrageous and downright disturbing images of the children in various disgusting scenarios.

As you can imagine, this became very popular with many children (mainly boys) and every newsagent in the land stocked Garbage Pail Kid stickers. In 2003 a brand new series of the Garbage Pail Kids were released by the Topps company.

    bad childhood memory! I wasn't allowed to buy these and on impulse stole a classmates'. I felt guilty and confessed when they were missed, and was then ostracised for the rest of the day!

    The best fad of the 80s! rediscovered them a few years back and have since managed to put the whole collection together complete series 1 - 6 with sealed packs and full boxes! My work is now done.

    Me & my friend used to collect these until my friend got one called 'Shorned Sean' which was a kid shaving a huge strip of skin from his head, my friends dad saw it and banned him from buying any more. I remember the chewing gum used to taste like antiseptic as well.
