Oooh the excitement!

RTE has just released a trailer for the Late Late Toy Show and it has all the elements to get you in the mood for Christmas.

It has an old-fashioned Christmas vibe with Christmas trees, kids in their winter woolies, fake snow, trumpets, drums, a snow globe and Tubs decked out in his finest as The Nutcracker's toy soldier.

Sure what more could you want?

How about the tinkly jingle of The Shins' version of Wonderful Christmas Time?

The promo will premiere on television tonight in between EastEnders and Fair City and will play in place of the ad break between the two shows.

Fans will also get an insight into how the programme is put together in a three-part documentary series, The Late Late Toy Show Unwrapped, starting on Wednesday, November 29th on RTÉ One at 7pm.

Last year’s Late Late Toy Show was the second most watched programme on Irish television this century. The Jungle Book themed show had an average consolidated audience of 1.57 million viewers as Ryan Tubridy and 320 children entertained the nation. 

The Late Late Toy Show airs December 1 on RTE One.

Here's how you can get your hands on some elusive Late Late Toy Show tickets...
