Dalek Doctor Who Gifts

The Daleks strike fear into the hearts of most Doctor Who fans. We've featured some of the coolest Doctor Who Dalek Gifts we could find below.

If I was a fan of Doctor Who as a child I would have made this the one and only request on my Christmas list. This ride on Dalek toy is insanely cool. It does inflate but don't let that worry you. This is not the same quality of a beach ball or those cheap pool toys you are familiar with. This Doctor Who gift is made of a very durable vinyl material. What kind of vinyl you ask? Well it is constructed of ballistic nylon and laminated rubberized polyvinyl, which is soft to the touch but extremely durable and tear resistant.

I know what you are thinking. This thing is much more than an inflatable bouncy toy. It has a 6 Volt motor that provides 360 degree steering and propels it around at speeds of up to 2 mph! It also has lights and sound effects! Simply press the buttons on the steering wheel to activate one of the 10 authentic Dalek phrases.

Don't worry because the soft bumper around the vehicles will protect any furniture and walls in the Dalek's path from being damaged.

There is so much good with this Doctor Who gift there has to be a downside right? You got me! Unfortunately there is some bad news.

1. There is a 65 pound weight limit and NO adult version.

2. This Doctor Who gift isn't so affordable. This much Doctor Who Dalek awesomeness will set you back about $300.00

3. While the site I link to above is in the United States they have to import this awesome Doctor Who gift from the UK. Therefore it is designed for those wonky UK wall outlets and can't be charged without an adapter. You'll need to purchase an adapter to convert the plug to the U.S. style. The site selling these Dalek ride on toys also has adapters available for about $20.

This guide to the the Doctor Who universe is an incredible Doctor Who gift idea. It contains 144 pages packed with tons of great information about devices, monsters, gadgets and more! It's loaded with tons of great photos and cut-aways. (Our favorite is the sonic screwdriver).

It even includes a fold out TARDIS highlighting the interior features and all sorts of little details you may have missed on TV. SWEET!

Currently priced at about $24.99, the Doctor Who Visual Dictionary is a great affordable Doctor Who gift. Click the image above for more information or to order your copy today.
