Late Late Toy Show review: The kids are always great – but as a production run, it’s repetitive, it’s time for a reboot

Isn’t the Toy Show already huge? Years ago, it was just a little thing, a small part of the much larger Late Late Show. Over the past 14 years, headed by Ryan Tubridy, the Toy Show has evolved into a kind of country party.

You don’t have to watch it, of course, but the tsunami of pre-promotion, synopsis of musical performances from past shows (which are good, in fact) and Toy Show TV commercials for themselves. it has become inevitable. It exploded, pushing Christmas before it. We are still in November; just said.

On Friday morning, the theme of this year’s show was revealed to be The Wizard of Oz. But on The Afternoon that same day, Maura and Daithi said they wouldn’t even ask Ryan what the subject was. Ryan put his finger on his slip in a conspiratorial fashion. He must have given so many pre-match interviews that he forgot what he said in it – and you can’t blame him.

The kids are always great. Lucy Hoban from Galway, pretty much wants to be a singing vet when she grows up and is expecting a new baby brother for Christmas. Billy Brady, Denise barber cut his hair into a “Business in the front, party in the back” style, and his favorite shop in KIlcullen, Kildare County, is Centra. When he grows up, Billy wants to become a member of An Garda Siochana and arrest “anyone”. And the moment of the show for me was Cealan calmly tidying up a discarded lid during his Liverpool football game. That was before he was taken aback by the arrival of Liverpool goalkeeper Caomhin Kelleher, who charmed and suggested Cealan to Anfield. “I’m buzzing,” Cealan said.

It’s great to see real hugs on television and how spontaneously they are suggested. It is amazing to see the generosity of the Irish public come to the fore again, with 3.1 million euros donated to good causes.

There are other moments as well. For example, when Ryan asked Saoibh from Tramore in Waterford County how she formed the friendship in the hospital. “Which hospital?” Saoibh replied that the search for clarity indicates a very successful future. She deserves it. When her friends Ellie Mae and Jack, who had shared a room with her in St Gabriel’s hospital on Temple Street, arrived, Saoibh was delighted to see her. All three were rewarded with a five-day trip to Disneyland in Paris.

Between the children’s awards and the ongoing audience awards, the show is full of goodies. Sometimes the surprises, at least, are overwhelming. Caitriona, a Harry Potter fan meeting with actress Emma Watson who plays Hermione almost ended with the child exploding.

It’s okay. As Caitriona put it, “It’s the Toy Show, Ryan.”

As a product, however, Toy Show repeats itself. There are only so many lovely children that you can take. And there’s plenty of Ryan Tubridy, who changes into his sweater – and at least his shoes – after each ad break, as if he were Shirley Bassey at home.

It’s weird to talk about a show ostensibly just for kids, but as we’re reeling from the toy shows – and no one asking the price of any of the toys – to the musical performances. old-fashioned music to the awards and the audience cheering tirelessly, as if the kids were more of an accessory to the show than the center of it. It is Ryan who is at the heart of it.

That’s understandable: he’s a reliable performer. But the Toy Show needs a reboot, and it’s nearly impossible for any show to run for two and a half hours and still look fresh.

And now the Toy Show is a musical, opening in two weeks. How much Christmas happiness can a country get?

Ryan Tubridy has told at least two publications how exhausting he finds The Toy Show and how he’s made mistakes in the past by not taking enough time off afterward. There are those of us who will heed his advice and take a few days to recover. Late Late Toy Show review: The kids are always great – but as a production run, it’s repetitive, it’s time for a reboot
