Woolworths has relaunched its most popular product of all time: a range of adorable meerkats in the garden.

The retail giant estimates that around 150,000 meerkat images will fly off the shelves in the spring, with 45 designs to choose from.

The new characters are priced at $10 each and include meerkats dressed as surf rescuer, pilot, wizard, beach dancer, singer, and more.

Last year, Woolworths revealed that as many as 60,000 meerkats had been sold in less than a month.

On social media, customers show off their impressive collections after purchasing almost the entire range.

The supermarket also sells an assortment of over 48 native wildlife, with 50 cents from each sale set helping native Australian wildlife through the Woolworths and WIRES Food for Wildlife programme.

2021 included Olympians, fairies, brides and grooms and solar-lit meerkats for $20 and $5 DIY meerkat painting sets.

The store had doubled its order in 2020 but still managed to sell the equivalent of 2019’s stock in the first week as shoppers bought meerkats in record numbers.

James Hepworth, chief executive of Woolworths, previously said the supermarket was “excited” about the resupply after the statues enjoyed such huge popularity last time.

“Customers exceeded our expectations for demand last year with these meerkats, and this year they will find a range of new and quirky designs and personalities as a way to get families out of the house and into the yard,” he said.

Demand for garden and DIY products has skyrocketed since the pandemic began in early 2020 as people spend more and more time at home.
