Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 18th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 19, 2009 11 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Children from the Royal Far West Children's Health Scheme and Westmead Children's Hospital make a dash for the newest Easter Show bags (left) or take an interest in the animals (above). See their verdicts: Page 23. Pictures: BRENT McGILVARY ~PP255356 Show fun is all in the bag SHIREEN KHALIL KIDS will argue that the best thing about the Royal Easter Show are the showbags and each year parents hope they will offer value for money. The bottom line is that they do offer some great things for the fraction of the price and there's even something for mum and dad. The Inner-West Weekly went to the showbag launch last Wednesday to uncover some of the best bags among the 100 on offer this year. For the first time, the Hannah Montana showbag has made it to the stands, and there's no doubt this bag will have girls lining up. Originally valued at $51.65, the Hannah bag is going for half the price at $25 and includes a shoulder Bag, lockable Diary, lip gloss, microphone, mirror and keychain. Don't worry boys -- you haven't missed out, one of the most popu- lar Cartoon network shows, Ben 10, is also on offer and for $25 it includes a satchel bag, trucker's cap, wallet, watch, tattoos and a yoyo. If parents are going to be spend- ing on average $50 worth of showbags for each child, the budget is going to be a bit tight, but this doesn't mean parents can't have fun too. To prevent your budget from busting, the Inner-West weekly chose the Mum and Dads showbag which is valued at $6 and comes with a camping mat, oriental flag, hanging rocker and umbrella. But if this isn't good enough there's the Ok! magazine bag for $15 or the Men's Health bag valued at $20. Sydney Royal Easter Show gen- eral manager Michael Collins said the show was the best place to spend time with family and friends.
