It was another great Late Late Toy Show and John Byrne looks back on the best moments of the Wizard of Oz themed television enjoyment that was the 2022 Toy Show.

The opening of the Toy Show is always spectacular – and 2022 was as good as it gets.

Beginning with Tubs driving a Dublin bus down Yellow Brick Road, it erupted into a black-and-white retelling of Dorothy’s arrival – not in a land called Oz, but at the Toy Show!

After the opener, Tubs reappeared on stage in his usual Christmas shirt and off we went… but not before Ryan explained the message of this year’s show: “There’s no place like home!”

Billy Mullet

Billy Brady, 5, from Kildare was out testing toys but Ryan first asked him about his haircut. “It’s a mullet,” he explained, describing it as “business in the front and party in the back.”

Although his dream is to be a footballer and play for Liverpool and Ireland, 8-year-old Cealan Green, from Dublin’s East Wall, told Ryan he would also like to be a teacher.

As Caelan took a blindfolded shot against Ryan in goal, Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher snuck onto the stage and gave Cealan a big surprise.

After Caoimhin presented him with his goalkeeper gloves, Caelan was blown away when he was presented with a Liverpool shirt signed by the first team.

Then came the ultimate gift: Caoimhin invited Caelan and his family to a Liverpool game at Anfield!

Aaron Airlines

Aron Gibbons (6) from Westport loves flying and all things airplane related. He wants to be a pilot, so Ryan took him on an imaginary trip with Toy Show Airlines.

“Are you the chief pilot?” asked Ryan as they settled into their cockpit. “His name is Captain,” corrected Aron.

Ryan then told him that he would be taken to Dublin Airport on a special tour and that he would become “a pilot for the day”.

A very happy Aron hugged Ryan and then, uh, flew away.

Saoibh’s song

Saoibh Lonergan, 8, from Wexford, told Ryan about the friends she made at the hospital and then did a comic routine before singing a song she had written herself.

The best moment came last The Late Late Toy Show. Oh how we enjoy these late surprises!

It was a very happy 12th birthday for Dublin native Emmie O’Neill who told Ryan of her admiration for the Ireland women’s football team. Adding that she “loved doing comedy,” she performed a short stand-up set for the audience.

But Emmie got the surprise of her life — “Oh my god!” she said — when Brendan O’Carroll, aka Mrs Brown, popped up in a video greeting especially for her.

“You’re a fabulous comedian,” Mrs. Brown said to Emmie. “Happy Birthday Chicken!”

As if that wasn’t enough, Irish footballer Katie McCabe – who is heading to Australia for the World Cup next summer – came onto the show with some of her Irish team-mates to give Emmie a birthday hug.

And if the wasn’t enough, Ryan turned the treat volume up to eleven as he told Emmie she was going to Australia too – and with her family!

The icing on the cake? Katie McCabe then told Emmie she was taking her to a training session in Ireland during the World Cup!

The Toy Fair never fails to deliver.
