A frightened mum rushed her daughter to Hospital this week, after she noticed an odd shaped bruise or rash on her chin.

Medical experts at Mackay Base Hospital ED examined the child’s chin and quickly diagnosed her with Ooshie-itis and Simba the Oosie was the culprit.

Simba had been suctioned to her daughter’s chin, causing the suspicious looking mark.

The bruise later disappeared and the little girl is expected to make a full recovery.

Not the first case either!

ED nurses at the Hospital admitted the Woolies collectables have been responsible for a few nasty bruises recently.

  • Glad it was only a mark and nothing too serious. Kids always find ways to do some silly things.

  • This does occur with toys that can cause suction – so care always needs to be taken with toys.

  • We don’t collect these but apart from the fright of Mum not knowing what it was it seems fairly harmless.

  • My youngest daughter likes to collect them with her boyfriend. But I can see how this can happen so easily with younger children.


    • Indeed, they’re just not suitable for younger children like a lot of other toys aren’t.

  • Obviously not serious, but you can’t take any chances with suspicious bruises on children!
