An eagle-eyed shopper at Woolworths has noticed that some new Lion King Ooshie collectables have been released by Woolworths in the form of an advent calendar.

Posting about her find on a Facebook page dedicated to buying, swapping and selling Ooshies, she said: ‘This isn’t for sale or trade I just wanted to share my lucky find. 

‘Woolworths was very sneaky it seems and has released series two of the Lion King Ooshies today.  

‘The minis are available to purchase as a complete set for $40 and the big Ooshies are $10 each, but stock is very limited.’
