Which one is your favourite?

It’s happening! This year’s Late Late Toy Show will air on RTÉ One tonight from 9:35pm.

It’s a must-see for Irish audiences every year and is guaranteed to provide laughs, viral moments and a few tears (of the happy kind).

To get you in the festive mood for tonight, we’ve taken a look back on some of the Toy Show’s most memorable moments.

1. Robbie Keane surprising super fan Domhnall (2013)

Domhnall O’Confhaola was talking about his football icon Robbie Keane on 2013’s Toy Show. The veteran footballer for Ireland was recovering from surgery on his Achilles tendons at the time.

But that didn’t stop him from surprising Domhnall live on air and absolutely making his Christmas!

2 Aimee does a duet with Ed Sheeran (2014)

Not many people can say they’ve duetted with Ed Sheeran.

Lucky for Aimee Keogh, she got the chance to do just that during 2014’s show. She also got free tickets for her and her family to one of his gigs in London.

Not a bad Christmas surprise at all!

3. Any Craic? (2012)

An oldie but a goodie!

Alex from Dundalk gave us a gas response to the question “Any craic?” while showing off his Irish skills. He simply stated “Nil” before cycling away on his tractor.

A bit of a constant mood, if you ask us.

4. John Joe Brennan (2009)

This OG toy show king.

John Joe Brennan stole all of our hearts when he appeared on our screens in 2009 and admitted he wanted to fix clocks for a living.

A few years later, he even came back to the Late Late and admitted he’d changed his mind about working with clocks. He’s now studying law in Paris, but he still loves clocks.


5. The emotional Family Reunion (2017)

Grab the tissues for this one, it may make you cry.

Adam and Kayla Burke were reviewers on the 2017 Toy Show. At the end, they got to review one last special gift. Sergeant Graham Burke decided to surprise his kids live on TV by coming home early for Christmas.

All of the feels!
