Hello!

It’s been blessed relief having a break from the frenzied collections at the two supermarket giants. But it looks like the pause was short-lived as news has hit that the popular Stikeez collectables are making a return to Coles later this month.

The first version of Stikeez collectables was launched in February last year and came in the form of cute mini plastic fruit and veggies with tiny suction bases – designed in partnership with Healthy Kids Association in an effort to make healthy eating fun.

And now, mum-in-the-know Foodie Mumma Ren has shared on her social media page that Stikeez Part 2 is coming soon.

She revealed that she has “a very reliable contact high up in Coles” who has whispered the news in her ear.

Creatures Of The Deep

Last year, we reported that the Stikeez 2 collectables would have an under-the-sea theme.

Creatures of the Deep would feature figurines of a variety of sea creatures, such as whales, sharks, fish, squids and crabs, and some glow in the dark.

The Stikeez collectables campaign was helped Coles’ growth to rocket 2.4 per cent growth for the first quarter of last year so we can only presume they are keen to repeat this success.

Last year customers received one free Stikeez for every $30 spent in store or online. There were 24 minis to collect, with some being named after real-life Coles producers – such as Ava the Apple and Carlo the Cucumber. There were even rare Stikeez that fetched thousands of dollars on eBay.

Customers In A Tizz

However, not all shoppers are pleased with the prospect of the Stikeez collectables comeback.

One vexed consumer shared:
“Woolies it is then! Still finding the little choking hazards in odd places. Still trying to bin them!”

Another one voiced an environmental concern:
“I find these everywhere, I even found one down at the river. Bad news!!”

“No!No! I can’t afford these again. Bloody drives me crazy trying to fill all the sets,” said another disgruntled mum.

The new Stikeez are expected to return on 12 February and we suspect collector cases will also be available for around $4, together with a range of drink bottles, plush toys and a variety of other branded paraphernalia.

Coles has been coy about confirming the Stikeez collectables comeback but we’ve got a gut feeling that it’s green for go!

  • I won’t be collecting them. I am still finding hidden Ooshies from the hell of the WW promo

  • I never got them last time either – didn’t even know they existed! Don’t shop much at coles.

  • I don’t shop at Coles so it won’t be an issue for me. If Woolworths bring something like this back, I’ll probably collect them and send them on to my friends

  • I’m not a fan of the Stikeez simply because my kids didn’t like them.

  • We might get them when shopping.

  • Noooooo. I don’t want them!

  • I’m done with these now. It was so nice to have a break from them, but I think I now have collectibles fatigue.


    • Yeah me too, although I did like the herb & vegetables seeds from Woolies

  • I don’t think I’ll collect them for my kids

  • Not again. It’s so expensive to collect a set for each kid. You need a village to help you get them all.
    Coles are making a fortune

  • Oh no. More coming? Oh well.. I will get them for my neighbour! :-)

  • I didn’t collect a single stickeez. I collected a couple of little shops for my daughter and happily collected all the vacuum seal containers. I have a few points for the glasses, but they took me so long to amass, the glasses I wanted have gone. So I don’t know if I’ll bother getting any now

  • I am so glad I don’t do it. However my small grandsons drive their mothers crazy wanting them! It’s time Coles and Woolworths gave these a miss!

  • I am really fed up with all these little plastic toys. My kids nag me about wanting to go shopping just so they can collect these toys, only to find them discarded a few months later.
    I remember also that you only had to spend $20 to get these type of toys. I am a single mum and so can not afford to go to Coles when they have these promo’s.
    All i can say is Coles – Stop being so money hungry and for once think of your customers.

    I will be shopping at Woolies

  • Here we go again. Don’t know if it’s just me but Coles use to be my go to supermarket but since they have started with all this collectables stuff. I’ve lost interest in going there all together haven’t been back there sincr. So Goodluck Coles because no one is going to end up shopping there anymore. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

  • I boycotted Coles with their last lot of mini shops and haven’t been back since. As a marine ecologist, I know first hand the damage unnecessary plastic is doing to our oceans. People are also so brainwashed by consumerism… it’s crazy!
