The Late Late Toy Show was an absolute cracker this year, with over 1.4 million people tuning in to watch Ryan Tubridy demonstrate the year's most popular toys with some help from his little pals.
Tickets to the event are highly coveted, and international viewers in 102 countries outside of Ireland streamed the show.

This year saw Ryan don a multitude of jumper and an Baloo the bear suit that was oddly bountiful in the booty for the opening sequence.
Some highlights had to include Edie Rose 's penchant for pizza making and Beibhinn's heart warming diabetes doll.
There were also architectural endeavours, presidential letters from Áras an Uachtaráin and a medley of country tunes that wouldn't have been out of place at a Sunday session in any country.
The new behind the scenes video shows some sneak peeks of the performers warm ups, some backstage jitters, and, naturally, lots of beyond adorable kids.
The spine chilling rehearsal for the award meriting rendition of "Fix you" (who needs tickets for Croke Park) is featured, as well as plenty of bloopers.
However we never got an excuse for that specimen of a Christmas shirt, Ryan.
