Description

THE GARBAGE TRUCKS
ARE HERE TODAY!


Smashing, mashing,
lights a-flashing,
gobblin' garbage,

GULPITY-GULP.

From castaway furniture to last night's leftovers, no job is too big or too small for this rugged team. With an upbeat, rhythmic text, Smash! Mash! Crash! There Goes the Trash! follows two garbage trucks on their route. What results is a stinky, roaring, rumbling mess -- and LOADS OF FUN!
