Something For Everyone: A Royal Adelaide Showbag Rundown

With over 400 showbags to choose from at this year’s show, there is literally a bag for everyone!


Along with 70 very excited children we attended the Royal Adelaide Showbag Launch. The Royal Adelaide Show is back from 1st of September for 10 fun filled days. With over 400 showbags to choose from at this year’s show, there is literally a bag for everyone. The showbag pavilion can be a manic, overwhelming place so we’ve broken it down into smaller (more manageable) chunks which might help you pre-plan and avoid the stress of it all.

New showbags for the kids:

Dr Seuss, which includes his very famous hat from the Cat in the hat book. Keep your eyes out for those red and white hats around the showgrounds. Captain Underpants which includes a hard cover book for your kids to read. The Emoji showbag which comes with the poo emoji slippers, and an Emjoi hat! The ever popular Peppa Pig has had an upgrade, including a pink tutu skirt for your young princesses to wear around the showgrounds. The Paw Patrol showbag has also had an upgrade as well as the Hot Wheels showbag.

For teenage girls:

The teenage girl market has been taken care of this year with some exciting current new showbags. Tried and tested by my teenage daughter, of course. Including; Miss Coco, LeTan, the Paris Hilton Fragrance showbag that includes some of Paris’s famous products. This one is sure to be very popular and is full of value, Dolly Magazine and Roxy has joined forces to create their very first showbag! For only $25 this is sure to sell out!

Adults certainly haven’t been forgotten this year with the Higher Living Indulge your senses Tea Bag, the upgraded Better Homes and Gardens showbag and the very popular Mix 102.3 showbag that is full of South Australian samples to taste as you walk around the showbag hall.
