The first thing that you notice about this item is the size,It's huge.It was quite hard to put it together and it was a little bit pricey but it was worth it in the end.i was using it for hours pressing all the buttons and watching the column wizz up and down.I especially like the flip up console pannel (as seen in the boom town and parting of the ways episode.)Overall i think this is a great item and well worth the money.

I was amost put off buying this toy after reading the reviews but so glad I wasn't. My son got this for his seventh birthday and he was overjoyed. It has the buttons , lights and everything a mad doctor who fan would want. Agreed, it won't stand up to a lot of bashing and I'm not sure I'd pay the £40 that it's priced at in most places, but for under £27 it has to be the ultimate dr who gift!!

The Tardis Electronic playset is scaled to fit the 5" Doctor Who figures (available separately). Press a button on the console and lights flash and you hear authentic Tardis sounds. There are lots of bits to play with: the doors open, panels on the floor lift up, etc. and as long as you have a couple of figures to go with it, play value is quite good.
Be warned that this is not pre-assembled. It took us about an hour to put all the bits together. The pieces are a mixture of plastic and card. You need to follow the instructions for building it quite carefully, and it's a job for adults rather than younger children. Once we'd worked out which bit was which, it wasn't that difficult to build, just fiddly, as one piece would pop out of place as you pushed the next bit in. If you're buying this as a Christmas present, it might be necessary to put aside some time on Christmas morning to build it! And then rebuild it when the doors fall off.
Once built, this takes up a lot of space - it's about 60cm (24") across at the widest point, and needs to be stored somewhere it won't get kicked or trodden on, otherwise the card bits will tear. Most of it can be taken apart and reassembled, but it's fiddly and the card pieces will bend or rip if you're not careful. It's difficult to move once assembled without bits falling off.
The set is normallly sold in demo mode, where only one of the buttons works to make a noise. There is a well-concealed switch just under the control panel, near the demo button, which slides to activate play mode. This gives a constant background noise and allows you to press a number of other buttons on the control panel to make different noises and effects. Slide the switch to off to silence the background noise and save batteries.
Overall, a good toy for Doctor Who fans, as long as you have time and space for it!

I bought this toy for my son's birthday. It didn't take particularly long to set up, looks more daunting to set up than it is. He loves it. However, I know the cardboard on top of the tardis is not going to last long.. the effects are good and the detail great.
There is a huge let down on this toy, it says from 5 years upwards. My son was playing with it today, his birthday. It fell apart at least 9 times. Ive suggested to my husband perhaps we can superglue it in places to try and make it more robust and stay together. So we are looking into this how we can do it and still make sure we can access the batteries at the same time.
If this can't be done then this toy is really going to be a total pain in the neck. I can't understand why they made it so flimsy that things fall off it if played with too much , afterall he has the figures to go with it, and tries to play with it with the figures and things fall off.
I didn't pay the full £40 for it, and Im glad I didn't. the price I paid , I still feel, it is a bit of a let down. Great idea, great detail, but structurally, unless left as an ornament, bit of a let down.

Well, if you can avoid sending £40 on this toy - I got it for £10 as part of a multibuy - it's excellent value. Once assembled - and set aside an hour to do this - it's a far larger structure than you'd guess from the box. This is so different from most Dr Who toys which look better and more substantial in the box.

The toy is an excellent backdrop for kids to play with the various Dr Who characters. It's a bit like a stage. Paying heed to other reviewers, it's not particularly robust but sets the context for Dr Who-themed play. I'd recommend it and wouldn't mind one myself!!

For £12.99 this is a bargain! I agree that it can be a bit flimsy in it's construction but at such a cheap price and the smiles it generated on Christmas morning i'm more than happy!

I feel that this toy has several problems. Putting it together - (as long as you follow the instructions and dont think you know how it goes!) is not bad but I found it to be incredibly fragile. Lifting it once you have put it together is not a good idea. It is also very big - bigger than you may imagine so you need space to store it.(dismantling it everytime is not a good option)It needs a space akin to a large coffee table -a shelf will not do! Because of its fragility playing with it is annoying - panels pop out, the tardis door kept popping out, the rails kept popping out you have to be really careful - unless you secure it all yourself. The construction of it is ill concieved so it is quite difficult to play with,with your dr who figures. Don't even think about have a fight or throwing a figure around (like kids do) it is not up to it. The good thing is the light up sound making middle which in fact my son plays with on its own. It is vastly overpriced and i think it needs to be for an older person (round about 10) who is very careful, almost fastidious with their toys. It is not for a young boy who wants something to play with that is more robust. I think that it is a real shame that this is not more robust - and maybe a bit smaller in order to house it. My son would have loved it (he is 5). It is impressive to look at but the cardboard panels on the floor and the cardboard panels around the tardis door as well as the way it is put together make it just that - good to look at!
