We are right in the middle of school holidays at the moment and we are right in the middle of collecting these Aussie Animals cards from Woolies. Last week the lady in front of us at the check out gave us her 5 packs of cards, retro daddy had 4 packs in his pocket after ducking out to get a few things and then I got 5 packs from my own shopping. That’s a whole lot of packs to sort out.
And I like that. The packs get ripped apart and the cards laid out and homes are found for the cards.
And it’s kind of addictive. I found myself ripping open a few packs…..keira was saying to me ‘Mummy, I’m supposed to be doing the cards, not you’ and I was like ‘oh just wait a second I’ll just get this pack put away in the right place’. The cards are numbered and the albums ($5 each or 2 for $8) have plastic sleeves. The animals are sorted by habitat and each page has some info on that habitat. I found it quite fun matching up the numbers and homes for the cards and had to remind myself that it wasn’t an activity for me but the kids. And yes we have 3 albums in our house to avoid any fights.
And purely for the purpose of this post we bought a few animals which have made themselves right at home. We have no shortage of stuffed toys in this house but I know these will be made welcome in bedrooms and on beds and we’ve done some holiday shows with them.
So ask for your cards when you’re at the check out at Woolworths. It’s one pack of 4 cards for every $20 you spend and start collecting because I can promise you that it’s lots of fun and you might even find yourself slotting the cards in and trying to complete your habitats. And for more fun be sure to visit the Aussie Animals website here.
p.s. To celebrate, Woolworths is inviting everyone to attend Woolworths’ Aussie Animals Trading Days and swap cards with their fellow collectors, with trading days taking place on Saturday 5th October at Woolworths stores nationwide. Head to your local Woolies store for times.
