No matter where you are in the world, you can watch this year's Late Late Toy Show - here's how. 

The biggest TV event of the year is almost upon us and to say we are excited is an understatement! 

The Late Late Toy Show will be broadcast live on RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player, this Friday at 9:35pm (Irish Time) - so book your spot on the sofa now!

But whether you live in Donegal or Dubrovnik, Cork or Chicago, Mayo or Madrid, you will be able to watch the Toy Show as it will be available to watch worldwide for free, live and on-demand on RTÉ Player, across Desktop, iOS and Android apps. 

Speaking ahead of all the fun and madness host Ryan Tubridy 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, 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."

To get in the festive spirit we took to the streets of Dublin to find out your Toy Show traditions and what your favourite toys of all time are.
