Where To Buy Showbags Online
You don’t need to go to the Brisbane Ekka to buy a showbag
If you’re avoiding the crowds of the Ekka, or just can’t find the time or money to go, your Brisbane Kids can still be part of the fun by purchasing a show bag online, or by making your own.
Here’s our pick of the best online providers; the good news is that most of the old favourites are available… Did someone say Bertie Beetle?
Online showbags from Showbags.com.au
Showbags.com.au have the biggest variety to choose from, with bags retailing from as little as $4 each (remember to factor in postage costs). Some of the showbags that are available from this online store include:
- Hello Kitty
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Sesame Street
- Mister Maker
- Peppa Pig
- Giggle and Hoot
- State of Origin
- Hubba Bubba
Novelty bags from Showbag Warehouse
The Showbag Warehouse only sells confectionery bags in bulk, however, you can purchase novelty bags (including the ones listed below) in small quantities for varying prices. Again, you need to add postage to work out your final costs. Some of the big name show bags include:
- The Simpsons
- Disney Fairies
- Dorothy the Dinosaur
Confectionery and fun sample bags with Mr Showbags
Mr Showbags has a range of show bags available for the public to purchase online, starting at just $3.99, plus postage.
- Beanie Kids
- Bertie Beetle
- Kit Kat
- Glowbag showbag
- Pirates show bag
You can also compare prices and content with Ekka show bags.
Now you can have show bags delivered to your door all year round – there are even Christmas show bags and birthday party bags available. They also make a great fundraiser for schools and community groups to sell.
DIY Show Bag
If there’s nothing above that appeals to you or your Brisbane Kid, it is easy to create your own show bag, based on your child’s interests.
By creating your own show bag, you can also avoid unhealthy treats and cheap products that don’t last, and instead, fill it with quality products that you know your child will love.
Begin with a gift bag, available cheaply from all discount stores, and fill with themed trinkets, crafts, stationery, toys, treats, magazines and books.
