The rare furry Simba Ooshie is once again for sale after the owner of the item explained the bidder failed to pay almost $100,000 for the item after winning the auction on eBay.

On Thursday, the first ‘super rare’ furry Simba Ooshie went for auction on the website starting at an eye-watering $10,000. Five days later it officially sold for almost 10 times the amount.

The ‘Furry Simba’ sold for a ridiculous $99,900 with 108 bids made over the length of the auction. But the seller said the item is back on eBay after the winning bidder failed to cough up the cash.

“(The bidder) said his daughter just bid on it for fun, so we have to cancel his order and relist it again,” they told 7NEWS.com.au.

The seller said they were annoyed some users were taking the sale as a joke.

“I do have some buyers (that) are serious and willing to pay a good price for it, but a couple of buyers (sic) are just doing it for fun.”

The seller is now considering offers from previous bidders.

  • The whole Ooshie and Little Shopper trend is just out of control. Who in their right mind would pay for these bits of plastic?! Especially these prices?! They should be banned from eBay because kids (who shouldn’t have access to eBay anyway!) will be sorely tempted ….

  • That still means that people were willing to spend over 10k for it.

  • These are fun to collect for the kids, but personally I’d never spend that kind of money even if it is rare.

  • Had a feeling it was a kid to have bid so high! Parents really need to keep watch on these types of sites as it seems to be happening more and more often that kids are making huge purchases

  • Ridiculous prices! :-)
    Well, maybe the parents should do something to avoid their kids bidding!


    • It is ridiculous and I am staggered that people have that sort of money to possibly buy an ooshie!



      • Yes. It looks like they are coming from a completely different world from ours! :-)

    • I did the same, i thought there might have been an extra zero or two added accidently.
