Run to the attic and grab your favourite toy because it is Late Late Toy Show competition time

A competition to scoop a ticket to the greatest Christmas jumper showcase on earth has kicked off with the Late Late Toy Show offering two lucky people ringside seats for Friday’s show.

To claim one of the coveted spots, all people have to do is share a picture of themselves with their old toys using the hashtag #LateLateToyShow on Twitter or on RTÉ One’s Facebook page.

A staggering 200,000 people applied last year  for the notoriously difficult to get tickets, so a quick trip to the attic might be a better investment for those hoping to go to the hottest show in town.

“We have been receiving a lot of entries and it is generating plenty of nostalgia for people in advance of Friday night’s show,” said a RTÉ spokesperson.

“One pair of siblings even rooted out all their toys from the attic for their entry.”

The competition was launched last Thursday with the following video:

And has already received hundreds of entries from those hoping to bag themselves a ticket.

The Late Late Toy Show airs this Friday at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
