- A mother has received a hundred death threats about a Woolworths Ooshie

A woman was confronted with hundreds of offensive messages after she tried to sell a rare Simba Ooshie for $ 5,000.
The mother of Queensland, only known as Monique, posted the Woolworths-collectable Monday online hoping to raise enough money to buy a laptop for her son.
& # 39; I have received so many messages about hatred and death threats just because I have found the rare hairy Simba & # 39 ;, she said 9 news.

People seemed disgusted with her asking price, and the mother claimed that she started receiving death threats after just a few hours.
& # 39; (They said things like) I'm a waste of space, I don't deserve to breathe air, I'm just looking forward to get money, & # 39; said Monique.
The mother said she couldn't sleep since she placed the ad.
Only 100 of the Fluffy Simba types from Ooshie are available and many despite the seemingly high asking price others demand a whopping $ 9,500 on Ebay for the plastic collectable – with two bids already registered.

Monique already has a buyer for the rare Ooshie with a woman offering $ 4,000 for the toy.
& # 39; If I have accumulated savings, I buy something that I like in appearance, & # 39; said Mrs. Hay.
& # 39; I bought it to add to my small Sylvanian collection, they are small hairy collections made from the same material as this Ooshie. & # 39;
The asking price of Monique of $ 5,000 is the cheapest available on eBay, while others are available for $ 9,500, while several bids are already registered
High prizes are not unheard of for the Woolworths collectibles where one man recently asked $ 750,000 for a & # 39; hyper rare & # 39; Ooshie.
The person who mentioned the item said he was also considering exchanging the Ooshie for an airplane or for land & # 39; in the right area & # 39 ;.
The seller also seemed to have experienced some recoil and noted on the offer: & # 39; For the haters there I understand the jealousy you have against me because I know it is impossible for someone to spend $ 30 on Woolies and get their own & # 39 ;.
