    They're awsome. I used to have them stuck all over my bedroom cupboard.

    I've been thinking of buying all of series one and two on ebay, but they are quite expensive though.

    I used to collect them up in a note book, but my Mum banned me from buying them after I got some of the gum on the carpet (& not for the designs).

    There were really big at my school during the summer term of 1986.

    I've still got loads of the backs with the certificates for.

    That summer me & a cousin awared them to friends & family & made a home radio show ceremony. I've still got it on tape & is now very disturbing listening!

    collected the stickers, ironically didnt chew gum. I loved the Cabbage Patch kids, I was one of those guliable morons who thought they were real! LOL Even sent the adoption papers back and got it a birth certificate
    But I couldnt resist the p take on it, even though they were pretty gross. I thought Adam Bomb was hilarious.
    Was a big collector of Care Bear and My Little pOny stickers too

    I used to live & breathe Garbage Pail Kids as a boy! Everything I owned was plastered in them. Cupboards, bed, lunch box, doors, my little brother...etc. Here's a few of the favourites from my collection below all signed by the artist himself John Pound. John's a real top bloke & he knocked up a commission of me in Garbage Pail Kid form last year so check that out too. It's jaw dropping!

    yes i remember garbage pail kids.
    they had slightly more gross names hence the fact theyhave garbage in their names.

    I can remember me and the older brother having them we had loads between us.
    not sure what happened to them got lost or thrown out acidently.

    but they where very well made for sure.

    I collected these, although with the benefit of adult hindsight they seem like such a crude, ugly, money spinning rip off of the Cabbage Patch Kids and they were bad enough!

    I remember the gum was dark pink and talcy and not very nice, although I still chewed it.

    To get us to part with even more pennies, I remember there were actually two stickers for each Garbage Pail Kid. The picture was the same but the name was different. These were all out at the same time, in the same packets. So lazy of the company to do this.

    I had loads and loads of them. I never ever peeled one. I never had a sticker album (or knew if they existed - they certainly weren't in my local shop where I'd buy the cards). I kept mine in stacks in empty flip top Fererro Rocher boxes (we used to use those as pencil cases in school !)
    Anyway, my collection was in mint condition and I kept them up safely for years. I used to hope they'd be worth money one day.
    When my parents were moving house, they had a car boot sale and said that my stickers sold faster than any of their belongings, ''went like hot cakes''. I was a bit miffed as I hadn't put my stickers in the pile of stuff to be sold !

    I still have a load of the stickers stuck up on the wardrobe in my old bedroom at my folk's house.I remember there was some controversy here in Ireland at the time over them.A father bought them for his young kids thinking they were innocent fun and was outraged when he saw the stickers in particular one called "Itchy Mitch" which had a baby tearing the skin off his back with a backscratcher.There was a story in one of the tabloids calling for them to be banned.
