How much would you be prepared to pay for adding a “rare” Ooshie to the collection?
They have appeared on eBay for up to tens of thousands of dollars after Woolworth’s launched four rare glitter Ooshies – Elsa, Woody, Captain Marvel and the Mandalorian –
A rare Elsa Ooshie glitter on eBay goes for as much as $15,000, another for $12,500, and one for $5500 has 35 watching. But a bid on those is yet to be made.
It’s not the first time they’ve sold Ooshie for big bucks. One bidder bid $100,000 for the ultra-rare furry Simba on eBay during last year’s Woolworths’ Lion King Ooshie promotion although the deal did not go through.
The reason Elsa, Woody, Captain Marvel and the Mandalorian are so rare is because these original Ooshies glitter versions are add-ons beyond the 36 character set.
Ooshies’ new line is a series of collectibles produced with Disney+, featuring characters including Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Minnie Mouse, Lady (from Lady and the Tramp) and Frozen’s Elsa.
“We’ve partnered with our friends at Disney+ to bring some excitement and magic to our customers’ shop,” a Woolworths spokesperson said. “We’ve been pleased to see so many of them enjoying beginning their collections this week. We’re always looking at new ways to make our collections unique and we’ll have more to reveal in the coming weeks.”
