Doctor Who TARDIS Toy - Perfect Dr Who Gift Idea

Updated on November 14, 2014

The Doctor Who Flight Control TARDIS

It will not have escaped the notice of anyone who knows me that I am a big Doctor Who Fan as is my partner.

So buying them a toy (ooops I mean collectible!) Doctor Who TARDIS was an obvious thing to do when it came to presents for their birthday.

The particular Doctor Who TARDIS Toy I bought, the Doctor Who Flight Control Tardis Vehicle, is manufactured by Underground Toys in the United States, and Character Toys in the UK. It details the TARDIS in all of its wonder.

I think it makes the perfect toy for children of any age, or can be purchased as a collectible.

Doctor Who TARDIS Toy Available In The US and UK!

In case you have a Dr Who Fan or Whovian on your Christmas list and are not quite sure what the TARDIS is let me explain! The TARDIS vehicle, is how The Doctor travels through time and space and stands for Time and Relative Dimension in Space.

This great toy (or collectible depending on the age of the person you are buying for) has opening doors and a telephone door, has the flashing TARDIS lantern, and includes eight different motion-activated sound effects including of course infamous noise of the TARDIS materialising as it lands.

True To The Original TARDIS Appearance

I really was very impressed with the detail of the product. The St. John's Ambulance label, which appeared on the TARDIS under the tenure of the first Doctor, William Hartnell, features on the toy. The label was reintroduced in the TARDIS seen in the seasons of Doctor Who which featured Matt Smith.

Steven Moffat, executive producer of the show, said that he wanted to bring back the label and place it on the door of the TARDIS as it is a powerful reminder of the series' earlier episodes and indeed would have appeared on the original Police Boxes.

Don't forget to order some AAA batteries, which you will need to make your TARDIS work and what could be worse that running out of batteries on Christmas morning!

Once activated, the TARDIS flashes a blue light at the top of the and as I mentioned earlier makes several different sound combinations. Inside the Doctor Who TARDIS toy you can see an image of the interior of the machine's control room. This sticker displays in great detail the complex engineering of the TARDIS.

It really is a beautifully produced item which will make a great toy for young Doctor Who fans or a great collectible for the older fan.

Another Great Doctor Who Gift Idea

Alongside The Doctor Who TARDIS Toy one thing that every Doctor Who fan has to have is their very own Sonic Screwdriver. So take your pick from the selection below and make the Whovian you are buying for truly delighted.
