Tonight marks the unofficial start of the festive season, with the Late Late Toy Show to hit our screens.
The theme of this year's show has been announced as The Lion King and will revolve around all things 'Hakuna Matata'.
This year will see the return of an in-studio audience capped at just 50 people.
Host Ryan Tubridy will be upping his game this year by performing not one, but two musical numbers.
He says tonight, belongs to the kids.
"The opening number is nearly the hardest thing of the entire night - it’s the great expectations of people at home on their couches.
"It’s probably one of the last events in the television world where families sit down together and watch together. I think it’s going to be gorgeous."
"Last year was kind of dark and difficult for people - they needed the big, shiny joyful thing that the toy show is. This year I thought it was going to be a lot more free with less restrictions, that’s changed now.
"The toy show becomes a little bit more important - I think people’s nerves are a bit gone and frayed at the edges.
"I think a night like tonight will bring a little shot of joy in the arm - that’s what they need."
A tribe of young performers and toy testers from across the country are ready to go wild.
14 year old Orla McDermott from Drogheda Co. Louth has been auditioning to perform on the Toy Show for 6 years.
It's just a dream come true - even being here rehearsing is magical.
The Late Late Toy Show will be on our screens from 9:35pm.
