We laughed, we cried, we sang along to Let it Go, and then we cried some more. The 2019 Late Late Toy Show was a wonder to behold and, as always, the country was on Twitter to share their thoughts on the Christmas extravaganza.
From funny to heartfelt, below are some of the best #ToyShow tweets.
Do you ever just think about how BIZARRE our tradition of watching the Toy Show is? You only realise it when you're explaining it to people in other countries #toyshow— allie ❄️ (@turquxise) November 30, 2019
A strong song choice
Watching the late late toy show and this is the ONLY country where we can all sit around watching a young child sing a song about having a last moment with their lover because they've been sentenced to death and no one blinks #LateLateToyShow— crisis haircut countdown (@crocfan1996) November 29, 2019
The Toy Show is just fab— Will Leahy (@willleahy) November 29, 2019
Uniquely Irish tradition that you just can't get on Netflix
This one is flawless and Tubs gets better every year
Only 51 more weeks to next year ..#LateLateToyShow
A show with children of all abilities, ethnicities & identities, boys who knit & girls who box, that addressed bullying & illness, how Nanas rock & how being yourself & the best thing in the end. A few hours showing us how diversity is something to treasure. ♥️#LateLateToyShow— 🎄 Fiona Kenny 🎄 (@FionaKenny1) November 30, 2019
The number of important issues affecting kids carefully covered on in the #LateLateToyShow amidst all the fun and eejitery was pretty impressive. Irish telly at its best. 👍🏻— Maïa Dunphy (@MaiaDunphy) November 30, 2019
Bring on the knitters
I love when they bring out the annual tiny child with the eclectic interests! Horolgists, Davy Fitz superfans and now this adorable tiny knitter #LateLateToyShow— Ellen Coyne (@ellenmcoyne) November 29, 2019
What's an outfit without glitter?
It's a look?
ISL lady is a boss
Sophia started loads of conversations tonight. Her hair is cool. She is cool. The #LateLateToyShow is cool for letting her tell her story and sharing her anti-Bullying message. You'd love this girl @MonicaLewinsky #TeamSophia https://t.co/sbNl9cfCkh— Roisin Ingle (@roisiningle) November 29, 2019
Ireland loves Tom
I would DIE for this Mr Rogers-looking child Tom. I want to steal him. #LateLateToyShow— Fionnuala (@FionnualaJay) November 29, 2019
Tom is amazing. He could have been born at any time in the last two hundred years and have exactly the same life #LateLateToyShow— November Alan (@alan_maguire) November 29, 2019
Tom - who has a suitcase full of knitwear he made himself, can do an aul jig and had his own Granny 'Nanny Pat' on as his special guest - is my favourite person in the history of Irish television #LateLateToyShow pic.twitter.com/Itgic73X08— Laura (@ElleEmSee) November 29, 2019
