The theme of this year’s Late Late Toy Show has been revealed.

Viewers will be brought on a journey from the North Pole to New York City with the Christmas classic ‘Elf’.

It airs tonight at 9.35 on RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player.

It’s the first year Patrick Kielty takes the reigns, and the new host will be joined by 170 kids from across the country tonight.

Ahead of his debut Late Late Toy Show, host Patrick Kielty said:

“I am so excited for my very first Toy Show and I am delighted to reveal that the theme for this year is an absolute Christmas classic – Elf, The Movie.

“Sitting down to watch it with all the family has become a big Christmas tradition in our house and I can’t wait to let Buddy and the elves loose in the Toy Show Workshop tonight.”

A list of the toys featured will be available on the show’s website www.rte.ie/latelate following the broadcast.

All toys featured on the night will be donated to charities.
