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.

  • Goodness me, do they actually sell any of these I wonder.


  • Maybe the need to actually make more available… nothing’s changed


  • I notice the latest promotions haven’t prompted this kind of behavioyr.


  • it’s so sad to see this. with new sets being released we will see the equivalant items scooped up fast and resold like this. It’s the kids that miss out


  • Cute trucks. there’s always going to be people hawking stuff at inflated prices. I don’t necessarily like the plastic crap being made but I think they do have a returns box where it goes to be recycled – hopefully more successfully than the plastic bag recycling debacle!!


  • The prices on Ebay are only realistic if they are in the Sold section – anyone can put any price on anything on ebay but someone has to be willing to pay that amount. There are no solds anywhere near these prices.


  • I bet they’re only worth a couple of dollars now!


  • That’s insane – I don’t know why there is such a big thing with the collectables. They are popular for a short time and then everyone forgets about them.


  • You and Woolies are inadvertently teaching children to value materialist plastic rubbish
    On a side note Woolies shame on you for manufacturing more plastic crap for marketing purposes which is unnessary not good for our environment
    Don’t buy into any of it…


  • Why pay for something that is free and getting all crazy about that one rare piece ?


  • I, for one, can’t really blame them. Surely food on the table would be better then a toy.


  • Never really got into these as my grand kids never asked me to get them. I did get the tiny products promotions though for them. If people can make money from free stuff then good for them, not something i would purchase but there are people who collect these things and it maybe the only way they can get them.


  • Look lego has always been expensive but for some woolies bricks.. haha no thanks – so silly.


  • I didn’t even hear about this. Crazy to think it was so popular.


  • This was a short lived fad, wasn’t it?
