Looking for Woolworths Bricks Trucks? Join the queue … and clean out your bank account!

Shoppers who snapped up accessories for the Woolworth’s latest collectables are now looking to cash in.

In August the retailer announced it was releasing a range of Woolworths Bricks, so kids could create their own mini Woolies store. And keen shoppers wasted no time snapping up the coveted accessories – including two trucks. But within days, stores had been stripped of the Woolworths Large Truck and Woolworths Delivery Truck.

Keen-eyed shoppers then discovered the Woolworths brick trucks for re-sale on eBay, venting their frustrations on the Woolworths Facebook page. “How can ‘those sellers’ in eBay have so many hundreds of stocks for sale, whereas the customers like us have to shop around in Woolworths supermarkets to get just small amount of the bricks?” one shopper wrote.

Even the ultra-rare golden figure and shopping trolley have popped up for resale, for as much as $750.

“Now, I’m all for making money,” another shopper added. “BUT when it comes to profiteering from a toy designed to be collected and enjoyed by Australian children … that just makes these people’s actions a whole new level of low in my (and many other parent’s) opinion.”

Woolworths replied to the concerns, saying it’s looking into the issue. “Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we are aware of the unauthorised sale of Woolworths Bricks on third party websites and we are making every effort to investigate this. Thank you.

Did you manage to get your hands on a Woolworths Bricks truck?

  • I’ve been happy to save up the free bricks for my grandkids but I wouldn’t get sucked in to buying anything that expensive ever!

  • I’m not collecting them for us but if offerred with my shop I accept and give them to people I know who want them. For us it’s too much to collect the set.

  • I didn’t collect any of Woolworths bricks this time.

  • The best thing to do is to not engage in buying anything at such an overinflated and ridiculous price. Just imagine how that large amount of money could be better spent!

  • Why do people insist on trying to profiteer over something aimed at children … so wrong!

  • I would have loved to get one of the trucks for my neighbours boy. I can only get to Woolworths on a monthly basis as we live 200kms away from the nearest one. I was able to give him a few packs of the bricks but that was all. There is no way in the world I’d pay for one of the trucks though. I hate people who profit off of things that are more or less free

  • I dont understand why woolworths do this, why not make enough so that everyone can get one of each toy, the blind bag idea is such a waste. So many people getting multiples of the same thing and they will probably end up in land fill.

  • I don’t know why Woolworths didn’t have more of the trucks available?

  • I didn’t manage to get one originally but have family IN NSW so they were able to get one early when their stock was released after everywhere else.

  • I couldn’t get my hands on one but I wouldn’t pay that much for one either.

  • There is always terrible people out there who wreck it for everyone. Selfish profiteering
