Woolworths has announced it is teaming up with Disney to launch its limited edition Lion King collectables called “Ooshies”.

Just hours after Coles announced the second round of Little Shop Collectables, Woolworths have released details for their own cool collection.

The collection will feature 24 Ooshies, featuring 9 favourite characters from The Lion King, including Simba, Nala and Mufasa in original colours and gold versions.

Managing director of The Walt Disney Company Australia Kylie Watson-Wheeler said: ‘We are beyond excited to welcome the all-new The Lion King to the big screen, with iconic characters that audiences have long treasured.

‘Our partnership with Woolworths will delight fans as they get to collect these long-treasured characters and introduce the beloved story to a new generation.’

Shoppers receive an Ooshie for every $30 they spend from July 17.

Woolworths has partnered with TerraCycle to recycle any unwanted Ooshies.

Which one will you collect? Coles or Woolworths?

  • I will collect both but most likely have more Woolies ones as that is where I do most of the grocery shopping.

  • I will probably collect these as I shop at Woolworths. I don’t need them for my family but I will collect them for my nephew. I love that they can be put on the end of pencils. Also pleased to see that they are recyclable

  • Obviously Woolworths have released theirs on the day that The Lion King is released in cinemas. I don’t shop at Woolworths so won’t be collecting them. It’s a shame both supermarkets released at the same time. I understand they’re competitive, but isn’t there a time and place for both? Interesting the outrage for Coles ‘plastic’ collectables, but not the same outage for these.

  • I like that they fit on pencils but I do foresee them ending up on the floor through my whole house.

  • Here we go again, So will kids be deciding where to shop or is it the parents. I think though Woolworths is better than Coles promotions because Coles are teaming up with many manufactures who want to advertise their brand.

  • I really want both coles minis and these! I’m not a collector as such. Most of the minis are just fantastic for barbies. But I’m a huge lion king fan so can hopefully swap some minis for some of those.

  • i love that woolies has partnered up with another company to recycle any unloved ooshies into something more practical – that is very clever and a great winning point for them!

  • Will be going for Woolies for sure. How awesome! I reckon the kids will be more interested in collecting the Lion King figures than miniature shopping products. I know I am!

  • My kids are going to want both!
