A ‘rare’ Woolworths Bricks collectable has emerged for the first time after a mum find it
A ‘rare’ Woolworths Bricks collectable has emerged for the first time – as a shopper attempts to sell the toy on eBay in the hope of making extra cash.
There are currently 500 rare golden Woolworths customer figurines with shopping trolleys circulating around Australia.
One lucky mum has tracked down the gold find after she purchased an additional figurine for just $3.
‘Bit sad we missed out on the truck. However we got something extra special instead,’ she wrote in a Facebook group, along with a picture showing a gold shopper with a shopping trolley.
She also received a note that read: ‘Congratulations. You’ve collected number 462 of 500 rare golden Woolworths customers.’
Meanwhile, a gold figurine has been listed for sale on eBay, so far fetching $242.50 following 27 consecutive bids.

The supermarket’s collectables made headlines news last year after a shopper tried to sell the ‘world’s first’ complete Disney+ Ooshies set on social media for $25,000.
In 2019, customers attempted to cash in on the rare ‘furry Simba’ from the Lion King Ooshies set on eBay, with bids fetching up to $100,000.
The rare collectables come just a week after the sold-out $10 trucks appeared on eBay selling for as much as eight times the price.
Customers are struggling to get their hands on the sought-after trucks – as shoppers looking to make a quick profit attempt to resell the toys for up to $90 each.
The add-on collectables – including the $10 ‘delivery’ trucks and $15 ‘large’ trucks – are now in high demand – as many revealed they are unable to complete their set after the toys sold out within days of launching.

There are now more than 600 listings for Woolworths Bricks on eBay, ranging from a single $3 Bricks pack to a $300 full set of 40 collectables
‘My Woolies sold out of the trucks and everything else on the first day. I can’t find them anywhere,’ one woman wrote.
Another claimed: ‘My mum saw a sign not long ago at a Woolworths store saying they are sold out of the small trucks statewide.’
One mum added: ‘The delivery trucks are sold out on the day of launch. I was getting my car serviced and they were sold out by the time I got there.’
While another said: ‘Sold out in two days, that’s ridiculous. I know it’s my own fault because I should’ve gone on the day it launched, but I can’t believe they went so quickly. My kids are so disappointed.’
It’s understood the trucks were sold out after customers purchased the entire allotment within a few days around the country – excluding NSW and ACT who have a separate allotment.
‘We apologise for any disappointment caused if customers find that any of the Woolworths Bricks delivery trucks has already sold out in their store or online,’ a Woolworths spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia.
‘Stock of the Woolworths Bricks and the starter kits that help support the build of the replica sustainable supermarket remains strong in all states and territories where the program is currently launched and will continue to flow to stores.’
The supermarket has launched the promotion across Australia and there’s 40 packs to collect
In addition, customers can purchase the delivery trucks for $10 each and a larger replica of a Woolworths electric delivery truck for $15
Shoppers will be able to collect Woolworths Bricks no matter how they choose to shop – via Pick Up, Direct to Boot, online home delivery or in store

‘Woolworths Bricks is a fun and interactive way of learning at home that can spark conversations within families about sustainability; whether that’s how materials like plastic or refrigerators can be given a second life, or how solar panels and electric car chargers are making a positive impact on the environment,’ Mr Hicks said.
Customers will have the option to drop pre-loved Bricks collectables to any Woolworths store to be recycled.
The partnership with TerraCycle helps create a circular economy by aiding the creation of new items from the Woolworths Bricks, including park benches and garden beds.
