Quiz: How well do you remember these iconic Toy Show moments?

Tonight’s the night.

ONE OF THE most important nights of Irish television is upon us: The Late Late Toy Show.

For a couple of hours this evening, our national broadcaster will turn its attention to an eclectic mix of misbehaving toys, live entertainment, off-script children, panic, and disaster, with a sprinkling of moments which are, often, genuinely heartwarming.

Maybe you disagree, but also, you’re likely an adult, and this is a programme about toys at the end of a tough year for children. We might all be able to find a collective ability to park the hot takes for one night.

Whether you can or not, let’s test your knowledge.
