Enjoy a bit of the Royal Melbourne Show at home

Kids can still enjoy some of the thrills of this year’s Melbourne show, even though the event has been called off.

You can have showbags delivered straight to your door and there’s also the chance to win 1000 Bertie Beetles.

The full range of showbags normally available at the Royal Melbourne Show can be purchased online for delivery.

Emily Williams of Showbag Shop online says there are some excellent options to keep the kids entertained.

“My personal favourites are the Kids Creation Station and Kids Kitchen showbags. The BIG Nestle Family Deal and some of our Value Bundles provide something for the whole family,” she said.

Others include the famous Bertie Beetle Showbag and showbag brands such as Roxy, Nude by Nature, Stella Athletic, Nerf, Home and Away, ACDC and The Beatles.

You can discover the full range of more than 65 showbags at www.showbagshop.com.au
