BEHOLD: The 12 best Easter showbags you can buy from Woolworths or get delivered to your door.

Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, the Sydney Royal Easter Show has (understandably) been cancelled.

While this means you won’t be able to watch the axe-throwing competition, go to the petting zoo or eat your annual corn dog, we do have some good news. You can still get your showbag fix this year because Woolworths are now selling 12 of the best bags in store.

From April 8, Bakugan, Barbie, Friends, Hatchimals, Harry Potter, Hot Wheels, LOL, Paw Patrol, Peter Rabbit, PJ Masks, Pokemon and Stranger Things bags are available from stores all across New South Wales.

Each bag will cost $30 and be available across 210 stores in the state.

And if those bags aren’t on your wishlist, you can also order a bunch more online from showbag.com.au and have them delivered to your door.

Afterpay payment plans are available as well, although the shipping costs will be dependent on the weight of your order

Sure, it’s a great way to entertain restless kids but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t equally as excited too. After all, what better way to replenish your dwindling snack stash, than with a lolly or chocolate themed show bag?

Here are our top 11 show bags we’d like in our cart, ASAP.

This is what the star signs are like in isolation. Post continues below.
