Three-year-old Sam Hope waddled in front of a dozen children, and a camera crew, to pick up a showbag for his little sister, and then one for himself.
The Newcastle Regional Show made its annual delivery of goody bags to Ronald McDonald House on Tuesday in the lead up to the event's opening on Friday.
"My understanding is your families can't get to the show," Peter Evans, president of the event's board, said. "So we’re bringing a bit of the show to you."
Ronald McDonald House serves as a home-away-from-home for families of children receiving treatment at John Hunter Children's Hospital.
Sam and his family have been staying at the complex for the past seven months while he receives treatment for Leukemia. They are originally from Guyra.
Sam's mother, Natalie Hope, said the toddler was very happy with his Paw Patrol goody bag.
"It's just really surprising and really helpful," she said.
Siblings Ashton Butcher, 8, Jarla Haines, 14, and Seth Haines, 12, all received showbags within one hour of arriving at Ronald McDonald House from Tamworth.
Their mother Becca Butcher said the family expected to stay for two days while Ashton received treatment for food allergies.
"It's amazing here. It's got that welcoming feeling," Ms Butcher said.
Isha Doyle, Ronald McDonald House's community engagement officer, said the delivery was "lovely".
"The kids get pretty bored here, they don’t get to do much else than go back and forth to the hospital because their immunity is low or suppressed.
"It’s wonderful for all of the families," she said.
