Often times countries would release Garbage Pail Kid-themed merchandise with their sticker sets. These products varied greatly in terms of quality, but they are typically some of the most sought-after pieces to collect.
An obscure part of the French Les Crados release was a set of seven pins. These pins featured various characters from the first few original series on the front...and were secured by the standard pin-back fastener on the back.
From a design perspective, these were highly glorified versions of the images, complete with lots of added gold accents, etc.
