Ever wonder what it would cost to fill your home with all the toys featured on the Late Late Toy Show?

We've added up the prices of every item featured on last night's show from the cheapest €5 doll's house to the Medium Rifton Trike at a whopping €1500.

The entire list would probably take several months to write by hand (better get started on next year's now) and it would set Santa back the price of a very decent family car - a cool €20,110.

That's not including the not-for-sale but donated by the Disney Store life size Stormtrooper you might have had your eye on.  Or the friendly Transformer Bumblebee for that matter.

However, it's a very recession-friendly list - the vast majority of toys featured on the show were under €50 with 208 of the 346 toys featured costing just €30 or less.

Chrstopher's The Good Dinosaur merchandise was all priced around €20 as was Lara's My Little Pony collection and many of Joe and Bobby's Star Wars items from the Disney store were priced under €30.

The most expensive items, those over €300 (of which there were only 9 in total), were unsurprisingly the electronic items for older children and adults ranging from the XBox One console at €349.99 to the 50" 4K ULtra HD TV at €819.99.

Pushing the affordabiility factor considerably were the electric balance board with bluetooth which came in at €499.99 and the Meccano Tech Maker System Mecchanoid G15 KS personal robot wasn't far behind at €429.99.
