Fear not! You can watch the Toy show in Canada!! 

It’s a time honoured tradition and the start of the Christmas festivities for most of us, and just because your not at home with your family doesn’t mean you have to miss out! 

Which is where the RTÉ Player comes in. Bosses behind the show have informed the public that it is available through various platforms, saying: ‘The Late Late Toy Show is coming to RTÉ One and on RTÉ Player, live and on-demand, this Friday from 9:35pm (Irish Time).

On demand….so no need to skip out of work early to catch it on Irish time (ahem Kate!!)

“With viewers in over 100 countries around the world primed to watch the show, tell your friends and family abroad they need not miss out as The Late Late Toy Show 

This is the links you need – https://www.rte.ie/player/ie/live/8/


Host Ryan Tubridy is hugely excited about this year’s show! 

He said: ‘One of the many great things about The Late Late Toy Show is that it is still one of those rare TV events where practically the entire country sits down to collectively enjoy it.’
Even better,’ he continued, ‘Irish people – and their friends – around the world get to watch along at the same time. People watched in 103 countries around the world last year.

‘For that couple of hours on a Friday night we are all connected by the madness that is this utterly unique show.
‘We have something very special planned this year and I think it is going to make a lot of people smile, no matter where they are in the world.’

Enjoy the show folks, we have the snacks in and the tree waiting to go up on time for Friday S xx

The Eaton Centre

This place can get crazy busy and not to mention hot on the weekends so pop in midweek if you can. Try H&M, Old Navy or Bluenotes for Christmas t-shirts and jumpers – cheap and does the job.
