‘We were lucky to get ours before this selfish person nabbed them all. Literally all of them.’
Shelby went on to add: ‘I'd just rather collectable things like this that are intended for the enjoyment of children not be exploited as a dodgy cash grab.
‘Families can't afford the inflated online cost by scalpers, these boxes are sold cheap for a reason, and this really betrays the whole concept and fun of it all.’
While some social media users questioned whether the shopper was in fact a staff member moving the stock to a different Woolworths store, Shelby disagreed.
She adds that the ‘guy didn't really look like an employee nor did it seem like that was the case. the staff member at the tills looked really uncomfortable.’
As a result of the scandal, Woolworths tell New Idea Food that they've introduced a limit on the sale of the collector cases per customer.
'We know from experience that special collectable cases can be incredibly popular, and sometimes limits are required to make sure everyone can enjoy participating,' the Woolworths spokesperson said.
'For that reason, there is a limit of 3 Woolworths Lion King Ooshies Collector Cases per transaction. We have reiterated this limit to our store team members.
'We would like to reassure customers that there is plenty of stock still available and we hope this will ensure everyone can take part and house their beloved Lion King Ooshie characters in the cases.'
