Here’s a great idea! We have been talking a lot about missing the Adelaide Show and we have published a cute little feature where you can buy some of our ‘Faves of The Royal Adelaide Show’ BUT how about this idea…….

Buy a few showbags now that you can pop away for Christmas! Nothing perishable here…… and no sugar – these are novelty bags, not the confectionery type.

Here are SIX from that we think would be fantastic for kids on Christmas morning. You could even wrap ALL of the things if you are that way inclinde (aka not as lazy as me, Jacki)


I mean c’mon, even I want this show bag. It’s worth the dollar bucks and the contents are probably some of the best quality I have seen – especially the backpack. The tote bag is currently our high rotation lunch box in our house.

The brand NEW Bluey showbag includes an Activity Set, Backpack, Bucket Hat, Cooler Bag, Dress-up Eyebrows, Headband, Masks (4pk), Stickers, Sunglasses, Pencil Case and a handy Tote Bag. $30.00 Buy here


This is so cute. What a classic for little ones. Again good qualitiy backpack and the sippy cup is pretty adorable.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Showbag contains a Backpack, Bib, Bucket Hat, Plate, Sipper, Non Woven Bag & Cardboard Stacking Blocks. $30.00 Buy here


Despite your opinion on the matter – kids freakin’ LOVE slime, making this the perfect gift for someonelse’s kid! Probably suits over 5yo market and we are loving the make your own slime bucket. This is such an easy way to allow the kids a few slime experiences with out having to buy all of the things to make your own slime from scratch. The 10 yo ‘Slime Master’ in our house is delighted with this bag.

The Nickelodeon Slime Showbag has Glow Slime, Neon Slime (Purple), Neon Slime (Blue), Neon Slime (Orange), Neon Slime (Pink), Mesh Ball, Slime Splatter Ball, Slime Bucket of Do-It-Yourself Slime & all packed in a Non Woven Tote Bag. $20.00 Buy here


This one is a cute bag packed with practical items that you will actually use. We didn’t love the backpack that it is packed in being clear or the feel of the plastic that it is made out of – but hey #waterproof, might be a good swimming bag? The contents still represented good value even if we dismissed the bag a bit.

The new Sesame Street showbag contains a backpack, drink bottle, bucket hat, toothbrush, activity set, masks (set of 3), ball, cutlery set, plate & straws (set of 3). Contents is packed inside the backpack. $30.00 Buy here


A delight for the Harry Potter fans and another fun showbag. We think the iron on transfers are a pretty cool idea.

The Harry Potter Classic Showbag contains a backpack, iron on transfers, drink bottle, letter writing set, non woven bag, socks, wristbands, keyring, pen set, pennant and a wand! $30.00 Buy here
