This review is from: Doctor Who - Radio Control 10" K9 (Toy)
If your young or old then you'll know his name, it's K-9 the dog from Doctor Who in 1 / 4 form.
He's radio controlled and comes complete with eight realistic sound effects (from the modern Doctor Who saga,) and a retractable blaster in his nose. All are controlled via the remote control. K-9 isn't the fastest tin dog on carpeted floors but on vinyl and wooden surfaces he's fast, manenvouable and scares the family cat. The remote control despite being `slightly' cheap in appearance is long range and easy to use, with the left lever controlling the left wheel and the right level controlling the right wheel. K-9 requires 4x AA batteries and 1x PP3 (smoke alarm) battery. I made the mistake of buying cheap Panasonic batteries which didn't last ten minutes. Duracell's or other alkalines are great but usually expensive. If like me, you feel that K-9 will be in use often and by a variety of people then I suggest investing in some high capacity rechargeable as they last almost as longs as alkalines and will save you a small fortune in the long term. The only thing better than this would be a life size replica of K-9, which is not the easiest thing to come across...or afford. This collectable toy is reasonably cheap, realistic, looks good and most importantly is fun and despite being constructed of plastic the toy can take a fair beating. So in summery K-9 would make the perfect pet this Christmas for any Doctor Who Fan... young or old.
