In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, a Woolworths spokesman declined to comment on the ultra rare Ooshies, but said: ‘We’ve partnered with our friends at Disney+ to bring some excitement and magic to our customers’ shop.
‘We’ve been pleased to see so many of them enjoying beginning their collections this week. We’re always looking at new ways to make our collections unique and we’ll have more to reveal in the coming weeks.’
The rare collectables could make you a fortune after some customers attempted to cash in on the rare furry Simba from the Lion King Ooshies set on eBay last year, with eBay bids fetching up to $100,000.
The supermarket confirmed at the time the rarest Ooshies character to look out for was the ‘Furry Simba’, with only 100 of them circulating around the country.

Unfortunately there will be a delay on the launch for customers in Victoria until lockdown restrictions ease to focus on store operations and safety of team members and customers.
To keep Victorian fans entertained until then, Disney+ is offering eligible Everyday Rewards members in Victoria a 14 day free trial of Disney+, giving them access to thousands of hours of films and series.
‘We know some customers in Victoria will be disappointed by the delayed roll out, but the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members, and community remains our number one priority,’ Mr Hicks said.
‘The delay will allow our team to focus on operations and supplying customers with their everyday essentials during this challenging period.
‘Once restrictions ease and we can safely roll out the program, we look forward to sharing the Disney magic with our Victorian customers.’
