AIBU. Post Brexit you guys need to insist on a Toy Show. It’s the best.

Its a real sentimental thing every year. I remember looking forward to it as a child and getting to stay up late to watch it. Now it's my own kids turn. Although there's fancy Late Late PJs now and all sorts of goodies that we didn't have. Wonder will it be still running when it's my grandchildrens turn

Watching with my DC like every year. Is it my age or is it just too much Billie Barry kids and too few toys these days versus when I was a child (ie when Gaybo did it)?

myduckiscooked · 29/11/2019 22:34

Actually Anna you’re right there are very few toys.

myduckiscooked · 29/11/2019 23:58

Adore Katie, without her that little girl would not box, it is as simple as that.

I saw some people talking about this on Twitter... what is it?

Iblinkedandiamold · 30/11/2019 00:22

Not enough toys and not enough toys not working. How ever I think I cried from start to finish. I love Ryan but I am exhausted watching him. What is he taking in the green room. 😂😂

MomOfTwoGirls2 · 30/11/2019 00:36

I have older teenagers, so not tracking the toys too closely. But I know my 2 would have adored that large dolls house on wheels when they were younger. Also the Polaroid camera that Sophie used for her photo book.

bubblesforlife · 30/11/2019 00:46

Cried my eyes out.
Ryan did a fantastic job tonight. It was a really well balanced show this year where there was a lot of important topics addressed.

@MakeLemonade it’s a one-night-per-year episode of an Irish chat show (the Late Late show) which ostensibly had children review toys in time for the Christmas season. It’s an Irish institution. They used to do a repeat on Channel 4 for the U.K. Irish audience. Tonight’s episode was glorious. As someone on Twitter said ‘ a show about toys with some kids became a show about kids with some toys’
