Late Late Toy Show 2008


After the success of Wish Upon a Star in 2008, the children were invited to audition for the Toyshow.
10 years on, the show is taking place in Draiocht on 19th and 20th February. It's lovely to look back and see familiar faces. Many thanks to RTE for supplying the clip to us. Enjoy
