Doctor Who Talking Soft Toy - Red Dalek

The other day, I went on a grand quest for fabric and materials for the Vulcan robes, necklace and headdress that I was going to create for Comic Con. Unfortunately, after hours of searching I found that the materials I would have needed came to more that 600 dollars. I walked home, defeated, drinking orange juice and singing Roses in the Hospital.

But then I decided to stop in at the mall to cool off. I walked in, and saw that the Hallmark shop had the new Star Trek ornaments in - my day got ten times better with that sight. Walking through the mall to get to the bus loop, I also decided to look inside HMV. My day then got 100 times better.


This talking Dalek plush is one of the most adorable things I have ever seen. Not only does it look adorable, but it sounds adorable as well. When pressed upon, it says one of two things: "Exterminate! Exterminate!" or "You would make a good Dalek". There are only three sense globes in each row around the lower casing, but it makes up for this inaccuracy with it's clear sounding phrases and charm.


The next day, I brought the Dalek with me everywhere - to work, across the street for a Monster, and around the city in general. I also took pictures while we were out (see above) and made a video about it, with which I will conclude this post:

  3. T'Laina--another cool link I ran across on the web which has a non spoiler review of the newest ep. A Town Called Mercy from Season 7. There's also a clip of Sylvester McCoy at 2012 Dragon Con, among some other neat stuff and links, so I thought I'd share: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/58338

  4. Greetings T'Laina!

    I've been reading your blog since the beginning of it, but I've never bothered to leave a comment. I would just like to tell you how much I love your blog. Checking out your blog is part of my daily routine. The first thing in the morning is to get myself a nice cup of coffee while I immerse myself in your texts.
    Your knowledge about ST is enthralling enough for me to spend two hours with my eyes glued to the screen.
    What I love the most is the overall quality of your posts. I'm not only talking image quality, but the way you choose your words when you write.
    Keep it up, and never stop creating entertaining and informative posts!

    I'd also like to mention that I've just created a ST blog myself, the cyberspace need more of those. Feel free to check it out.
