baratijas de plástico
Explanation:
It's usually written "gee-gaw" or "gew-gaw" or even without the hyphens... I've never seen your spelling, but I imagine that's what it is.

gew·gaw (gy gô , g -) also gee·gaw (j -, g -)
n.
A decorative trinket; a bauble.

Collins gives "baratija" for gewgaw.

Hope it helps.
