Here's how the rest of the world can watch tonight's Late Late Toy Show

Today’s the day! It’s Late Late Toy Show day!

Blanket? Check.

Spice box? Check.

Glass of vino? Check.

You don’t even have to spare a thought for the people abroad as they can tune in too.

The Toy Show will be streamed on the RTÉ International Player for free around the world via desktop, iOS app and Android.

How adorable is it that Irish families living abroad can introduce the much-loved tradition to the next generation and of course for all those who just long for a little piece of home during the festive season.

For the folks in Abu Dhabi, the time is 1:35am on Saturday morning, South Korea, the time is 6:35am, while it’s 5:35am in Perth and 8:35am in Sydney.

Although if you’re living ‘down unda’ and don’t feel like waking up at that ridiculous hour, it is available on demand for up to three weeks afterwards.

Lying on the beach watching the Toy Show on your iPad, sounds like the perfect Christmas Day to us.

For those on the other side of the Atlantic, you still have time to take that ‘personal day’ as according to EST the time will be 4:35pm Friday Afternoon and PST it will be Friday lunchtime, 1:35pm.
