    Well it’s that magical time of year as Ryan Tubridy shows off his easy rapport with the “theatre kids” of Ireland.

    What’s everyone looking forward to the most this Friday? I’m hoping for a Dustin The Turkey appearance and Ryan blasting the audience with his supersoaker (ooh err!)

    I know kids enjoy it and there is usually lots of fun to be had so I wish them all the best.

    Break a leg RT, it's the biggest night of the year.

    As for me, I don't even believe in Santa anymore but I might watch a bit of it.

    Some toys between all the charity appeals, "special" musical guests and frenetic hoofing youngsters would be nice.

    ( I already posted this on the other LLS Toy Show Thread. Two threads, where will it all end ?🙂 )

    I saw it mentioned on Today(I think) and there isn't going to many toys and nothing expensive due to the cost of living.

    One thing I am surprised about tough the tickets haven't sold out for the musical yet.

    I know my kids are really looking forward to more actual toys on the Toy Show.

    The last 2 shows they found disappointing.

    Here's hoping we might get a return to an old style toy show this Friday night?

    I'd have to put that down to the cost, the facebook mammies were up in arms about it. If you bring three or four kids along, especially if you're bussing it in or whatever, it gets pretty pricey.

    You'd love to be starting a thread/OP each week to have it subsumed into a half baked effort for the Toy Show, wouldn't you?

    And from one of the biggest critics of the LLS opening post too...

    Expect less toys this year, ratings for the past two years hitting record highs and showing less and less toys. Times change, shows evolve it'll never be like it was before, it's all about the stories, music and celebs now.

    I do think The Toy Show has changed a lot because a lot of adults watch it now and want to watch it.

    That’s a big part of it. 20-30 years ago the only people watching the toy show were children and their parents, then as those children grew up they kept watching it.

    Combine that with how kids in the smart phone era don’t seem to be enthralled with gadgety toys as kids used to be and Uncle Gaybo’s Toy Show wouldn’t fly any more.

    How is it unfair on the children at home exactly?

    I’m concerned about your remarks on “unfortunate children.” Do you think “unfortunate children” should be hidden away from view or something?
