Woolworths shopper's 'warning' about collectable range

One shopper has shared a 'warning' about Woolworths' much anticipated Bricks collectables, so that people avoid disappointment down the track.

"If I can give everyone a warning, it's to buy all the accessories you need in the first day or two to avoid being disappointed and missing out," she wrote on Facebook.

"Obviously only buy what you need but every promo I see so many mums desperate to get their hands on cases that have already sold out.

"We know these things sell out quickly, so if you think your kids are going to love it then grab what you need. I've been left short before and it wasn't fun."
