Woolworths Aussie Animals Collector Cards – $100 Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Woolworths

I am sure by now you will have heard about the new initiative from Woolworths, and the launch of the Aussie Animals collector cards, which hit Woolworths supermarkets last week. In conjunction with the Taronga Conservation Society, Woolworths is now offering over 108 Aussie Animals collector cards for kids to collect, featuring all sorts of creatures great and small, including endangered leatherback turtles, saltwater crocs and cuddly koalas.

I remember collecting cards as a child, and I LOVED it! So I knew, long before my children knew, that we were going to have fun collecting the Aussie Animal cards, and building up our album. (Albums are available for purchase for just $5.)

Now the beauty is that you really don’t have to do anything special to start collecting the cards – there are no particular products to buy, and the cards are FREE (you get a pack of 4 cards for every $20 you spend). So no matter whether you collect LOTS in your regular weekly shop, or you just buy bits and pieces here and there, the cards are easily collected over time. Lucy had her own shopping list (complete with takeaway hot chocolate of course!)

When Lucy saw the collection of Aussie soft toys, she fell a little bit in love with the koala… and the turtle… and the emu.

But it was the Koala who stole her heart, and she convinced me that he needed to come home with us because he would be lonely if we left him there (oh she’s good!).

The Koala has now been adopted by Lucy.

The cards that you get are a surprise, so the fun part was opening them up to see what we had collected.

Each pack contains four collector cards.

The album is SUPER easy to use – you just slip the card into the corresponding numbered plastic pocket. There is lots of information about the animals on each card, and the album also has extra fun facts, games, puzzles and illustrations.

The album features plastic sleeves to protect the cards.

For more interactive games, children can jump onto the Aussie Animals Fun website (with Mum or Dad’s OK) to access games, craft ideas, colouring in sheets, fun facts and more.

I am on a mission to make sure our album is completed, so if you are a tad obsessive like me, then you’ll be pleased to know that Woolworths have a number of ways that you can trade your cards so that you can collect every single one of the Aussie Animals cards in the collection.

Once you’ve collected all 108 cards, you can then present the completed album at Sydney Taronga Zoo or Taronga Western Plain Zoo and you’ll be given one free pass to the park! (View Terms and Conditions.)

It’s so lovely to see the kids take so much interest in learning more about these beautiful (and sometimes a little scary!) Australian animals, and I am certain that we will be packing this album into the caravan for our own Australian adventure next year. How cool would it be for them to actually be able to identify the animals in their natural habitat after reading about them in the album?!

I would love to help you get your collection started by offering all Mummy Smiles readers the chance to win a $100 Gift Card from Woolworths. To enter, simply follow the Rafflecopter details below, including leaving a comment telling me your child’s favourite Australian animal and why?
