App DescriptionHave you ever tasted trash?
Thought so, but for some, your old shoe box or your empty tin can, is yummie-yum! Meet our groovy recycling bins and feed them everyday garbage. But who likes what? Try out and see for yourself - their reactions will surely help you figure out each character’s favorites.
But where does all the trash go? Find out and make new products out of the garbage you’ve sorted by playing with the funky recycling machines. Pull the levers, click the buttons, spin the cog wheels and play along with the music. Whatever you produce - a bottle of lemonade, a jar of jam or a can of pinapple rings - it will come in handy. Banja the rabbit throws a picnic for her friends, and you’re invited!
Leftovers and garbage from the picnic is yummie for the hungry recycling bins. Let’s visit them again and do it all over!
