To Whom it concerns, welcome to the Break it Down Toy Show Special! Yes, you read it correctly. On this episode, Hilary and Holly break down Ireland’s Christmas extravaganza, The Late Late Toy Show. They chat about the women that made the toy show possible and reminisce on the show’s most iconic moments throughout the years. They are also joined by a former toy show star, Eva Mitchell, who reflects on her time on the show in 2003. 

As this year’s toy show will inevitably be a bit different, we wanted to make this episode extra special and involve our amazing Break it Down community. We asked our listeners to send us in voice notes about their favourite toy show memories and what the toy show means to them, so grab a pack of tissues! 

This episode is dedicated to our amazing guests:

Eva Mitchell

Adam Gilroy
