Here's how to watch the Late Late Toy Show LIVE from anywhere in the world


It's official-- there's only one more sleep until the most eagerly anticipated TV show in Ireland, and right now we're feeling a bit like this:

That's right-- tomorrow at 9.30pm the annual Late Late Toy Show will hit screens all over Ireland for it's 44th year.

Last year, over one and a half million people in Ireland tuned in to watch Ryan Tubridy wear ridiculous Christmas jumpers, hand out incredible prizes to the lucky audience, and interview hyperactive children about this year's most popular toys.

But if, like us, you're a little further from home-- or if you've never seen it and just want to know what all the fuss is about-- you don't have to miss out, because the Toy Show wil be available to watch live from anywhere in the world.

Whether you're in London or Luxembourg, Shanghai or Sydney, you can watch the festive bonanza kick off on RTÉ Player at 9.30pm Irish time.

The Irish cultural staple can be viewed on both desktop or via the app, so we reckon there'll be more than a few Irish emigrant Toy Show watch-parties in locations all across the globe.

Presenter Ryan Tubridy praised the free, live and global stream of the Toy Show, saying "Irish emigrants get a chance to connect with their home in a way that is absolutely unique to us as a people," adding that "Nobody else would understand what this bonkers show is about!"

He's definitely got a point there-- the utterly unique show is adored by everyone from kids (who the show is actually meant for) to parents, to childless adults trying to relive their own childhood.

(Plus, there's a Toy Show drinking game, so that might have something to do with it).

Whatever way you choose to enjoy the annual event, it's guaranteed to be a big one.

This year's theme has been kept tightly under wraps, but RTÉ have released a sweet teaser trailer which highlights how the show has been passed down for generations now and seems set to continue for many more.
