Mr Potato Head Meets The Daleks! - Perfect As A Doctor Who Christmas Gift

As anyone who is even an occasional fan of the long running TV Program Doctor Who will be aware the Daleks are the number one enemy! Or there again ..........maybe not!

Here's a chance to laugh in the face of danger and extermination as you encounter.........the Dalek Potato Head!

That's right The Doctor's arch nemesis has now joined the starchy spud-filled world of Mr. Potato Head! This Dalek Mr. Potato Head brought a huge smile to my face and many me literally laugh out loud.

The idea is so clever and this is a fun addition to my Doctor Who collection. There are still holes on the side so you can attach the famous interchangeable parts. Do you want your Dalek to have ears? No problem!

Buy The Dalek Potato Head Now!

The Dalek Potato Head Reviewed

Of course with the clever design of this Mr. Potato Head, there are limitations with using some of the interchangeable parts from your other Mr. Potato Heads. But honestly? This is one of a kind and deserves to be treated as a wonderful unique addition to any toy collection.

Don't tell anyone but............ but I imagine that when it arrives I will find myself grabbing my little Dalek and saying, "Exterminate! Exterminate!" whenever I walk by it. Being a big Doctor Who fan I can't imagine my collection without this little Dalek. It really is a great merging of two wonderful ideas both of which have delighted many generations.

The colors are fantastic and consistent with the gold Dalek that die-hard Doctor Who fans will recognize from the episodes from the seventies as well as the Daleks from series five (or season thirty-one). The body of the Mr. Potato Head is made out of great materials and is not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, and won't easily break. The paint hasn't chipped nor has the body cracked, and no signs of wear and tear. It's very reassuring and makes the purchase worthwhile.

With the holidays fast approaching, this is the perfect gift for any Doctor Who fan young and old. For kids, this will be a great toy to play with, and for adults, this is a great addition to any Whovian collection. The clever design is a lot of fun and pairs great with other Doctor Who themed toys.

If like me you are based in the UK then you will want to get yours from the same place as me at the best price: Dalek Potato Head.

The Doctor Who Potato Head Is The Perfect Companion

What else could you possibly buy the Doctor Who Fan (or yourself!) having bought them a Dalek Potato Head?

There's only one thing I could possibly recommend! The Doctor Who Potato Head as the eleventh Doctor Who becomes a Potato Head. Was that Matt Smith or is it "Mash" Smith now?

The Doctor Who TARDIS Kigurumi Pajamas, you need in your life!

If like me you're an avid Doctor Who fan and are on the hunt for a new pair of pajamas, you can't go wrong opting for a Doctor Who Tardis Kigurumi!

The Doctor Who Police Booth Tardis Hooded Kigurumi One Piece Pajama Costume is a high quality, authentic, Doctor Who licensed product and is crafted out of thick durable polyester instead of cheap polar fleece. So you can be sure that your Tardis kigurumi will keep it's shape even after it's been through the wash countless times.

Just like the Doctor's Tardis, the Doctor Who Tardis is also incredibly roomy, making it possible to layer clothes underneath your Kigurumi without it getting too tight around your arms and legs. As it's available in one size, one size fits most and is labelled as being unisex, you can confidently purchase a Doctor Who Tardis Kigurumi for a friend or family member. All without having to go through the hassle of having to guess their size.

Better yet, while it's relatively light weight, thanks to it's soft cosy polyester lining, you'll be able to wear your Tardis pajamas, all year round. Even on those long, cold, winter nights when all you'll want to do is stay home and watch Doctor Who marathons. On the chilliest of nights, just remember to take advantage of the Tardis Kigurumi's in built hood.

Upon receiving your Doctor Who Tardis pajamas you'll also be surprised at the level of detail that you'll find on your Doctor Who pajamas. Just like the Doctor's Tardis your new Tardis pajamas will boast shiny windows and a phone box sign which features the same style of writing that you'd find on the real Tardis.

However, the Doctor Who Tardis Kigurumi isn't just stylish, it's also surprisingly practical as it features a front zip, sleeve holes for your thumbs, arm and legs cuffs to trap in your body heat and massive pockets which you can store anything from your mobile phone to a remote control. On the subject of zips, the zip on the Doctor Who Tardis Kigurumi runs really smoothly, which was a relief as often zips on kigurumi pajamas get stuck or break after just a few uses.

Lastly, if you're looking a costume to wear on Halloween or to dress up in for a themed party, you can also get away with wearing Doctor Who Tardis pajamas as a costume. If you do, you'll be guaranteed to be the most comfortable, best dressed guest at the party you plan on attending. You'll just have to put up with friends and strangers alike asking you where you brought your Tardis pajamas from!

So what are you waiting for? There's no better way to keep warm whilst your lounging around your home watching your favorite episodes of Doctor Who than be snuggling up on your couch in your very own Doctor Who Tardis Kigurumi. Just a word of warning, don't be surprised if you find it hard to take your Tardis Kigurumi off or seriously consider wearing it to run errands. I'm still wondering whether I can get away with wearing mine to the grocery store.

The Doctor Who TARDIS Cookie Jar Is Out Of This World!

This replica Doctor Who TARDIS cookie jar is the perfect addition to the kitchen of any Dr. Who fan. You can store your sweets in style with this large-capacity light-up cookie jar. When the lid closes or the button on the top is pressed the TARDIS lights up and plays its signature sound. This premium-quality cookie jar has plenty of space to store big batches of cookies, thanks to its use of advanced Time Lord technology throughout.

This Doctor Who TARDIS cookie jar is a cool addition to any Whovian’s counter, with accurately reproduced details and a bright, attractive finish that perfectly matches the TARDIS from TV. It has a spacious interior which is big enough for large cookies, as well as a lid that seals tightly in order to keep your treats fresh. The non-toxic plastic interior and exterior clean up well with just a wipe from a damp rag, making this cookie jar incredibly easy to keep looking like new.

The sound and light effects, which can be disabled by the switch, are identical to the real TARDIS. In contrast to some cheaper products, the sound quality is excellent and the noise is perfectly reproduced. The light is a high-intensity LED which flashes brightly when activated. You can also trigger the TARDIS by pressing a button concealed on the top of the jar if you don’t want to open it up in order to show your friends. The battery life is excellent, and this cookie jar will continue to function perfectly for over a year without fresh batteries, depending on use.

The cookie jar isn’t without its problems, though. While this cookie jar is large enough for a few dozen cookies, it’s exactly as large on the inside as you’d expect it to be and there’s absolutely not enough room for a swimming pool. Much like the real TARDIS, this cookie jar seems to have a broken Chameleon circuit, so don’t count to being able to turn it into anything else in order to better match your decor. Also, and maybe most disappointingly, it doesn’t seem to be able to travel through time and space at all.

If you can look past the few shortcomings and appreciate this cookie jar for what it is, a faithful re-creation of the Doctor’s TARDIS that will keep your cookies fresh, then you’ll be extremely happy with your purchase. The sound and light effects are true to the show, the plastic is durable and easy to clean, and the entire Doctor Who TARDIS cookie jar is built to last with a rugged hinge and high-quality switch. This is the perfect present for any cookie-lover who also appreciates classic and contemporary British sci-fi, and it’s available right now for an affordable price on Amazon.com

Doctor Who - The Stone Rose

The Doctor Who Bookshelf

When not watching Doctor Who what does a true Whovian do? Read about Doctor Who of course! When you shop for Doctor Who gifts keep this important fact in mind. Some good choices follow.

Doctor Who The Stone Rose

Many of us love the quirky, intelligent and sometimes filled with rage Tenth Doctor most of all. Jaqueline Rayner does a magnificent job capturing his spirit and telling a story that's equal parts captivating and exciting in The Stone Rose. Five stars. The audio book version also gets two thumbs up!

Doctor Who Who-Ology

If the intended Doctor Who recipient didn't get a copy of Who-Ology in the 50th Anniversary year then this is one book that every Doctor Who fan will want to own! A complete collection of Dr Who Trivia - whatever you want to know about the TARDIS, things you didn't even imagine you didn't know and of course the reason The Doctor must never visit Trenzalore!

      Paul, is this about 1100 words? I 'm in trouble. There is no way I can bring up that many words about baby toes plant or a garden knife. See you around HubPages, I hope.

      Love your selection of Doctor Who gifts, Paul. I have one young adult son in particular who would love all of these items. I'm not sure if he'd choose the Dr. Who pjs (long-term comfort) or the Dr. Who cookie jar (cookies)
