Everyone dreams about stepping into the magical world of The Late Late Toy Show!

This year will see Patrick Kielty host the iconic night for the first time.

And he’s very excited to meet all the little performers as applications for this year’s show are open.

Yes, the hunt for the next Toy Show superstars as they open applications for child performers and toy demonstrators from all corners of the country. They want to meet the best of Ireland’s young singers, dancers, musicians, performers, and toy connoisseurs.


Speaking about the little stars, Patrick said: “Many moons ago in Dundrum, Co Down this cheeky monkey had a Christmas jumper, a John Denver haircut and a dream. But never in his wildest did he think that one day, he’d host The Late Late Toy Show.

“Today we start the search for this year’s dreamers – the next generation of Toy Show superheroes. So, if you think you have what it takes to be part of this year’s Late Late Toy Show, we want to hear from YOU. No matter who you are or where you’re from just tell us why you should be joining me for my very first Late Late Toy Show and, you never know, it might just happen.

“Keep dreaming. And dream big. Because sometimes, dreams come true!”

Applications may be submitted to:  The closing date for applications is October 1st!
