Little Alex Nicholas from Bundoran was the star of this year’s Late Late Toy Show!
Alex told Ryan Tubridy all about his fairy friends; Sunflower, Sam, and Robin – and how they write to him.
Sam and Robin live in Alex’s bedroom, whereas Sunflower opted to live in the piano!
Alex explains to Ryan how he gets rid of his worries using a special talisman that contacts the fairies and eases his worries.
He explains; “If I think of a worry – I’d be worried if I had a nightmare – I put my hand down. If it goes red, the fairies hear it, if it goes green my worry is gone.”

With his charisma perhaps Alex might take over from Ryan some day?
Well done Alex, everyone in Donegal is very proud of our little ambassador!
The little worry eraser is the sweetest toy! My eyes were welling up at little Alex saying it helps his nightmares!! #LateLateToyShow

That child is why Donegal came top of that National Geographic list of places to go #LateLateToyShow
