THE ANNUAL FESTIVE tradition that is The Late Late Toy Show is on this Friday.

So, just to get people even more in the mood, RTÉ has been running a competition for people to win two tickets to the recording of the show. All you have to do is share a picture of your most loved childhood toy.

And the responses from people have been lovely

So many have been tagging their favourite possession with the hashtag #LateLateToyShow

It’s revealed some great stories

Great commitment to the bike there, Enda.

It’s a nostalgic hit of what Christmas is all about

Tapping into people’s childhood memories across Ireland

It’s a cuteness overload

All of them are hoping to be picked to win the precious tickets

They all deserve to win though

From pictures of the toys today to absolute throwbacks

These people have nailed it

We had Star Wars

So much Star Wars

There were dolls that had seen better days
