Character Options Doctor Who Review

Youngest was very excited we had some Doctor Who figures to review, am not sure where his interest was coming from as he has yet to watch an episode – maybe it is just inbuilt into children!  

To be honest I do not think he knows a thing about the show bless him!  Eldest is slightly more clued up, he is six and has some Doctor Who pyjama’s he enjoys wearing

It’s crazy to think we are celebrating the 50th year of Doctor Who!  It just goes to show the popularity of the concept.  Eldest was at school whilst we got to grips with the items we were sent.  I quite liked the figures but the Cold War Time Zone Playset drove me slightly potty, it’s a 3D card set, so takes a fair bit of building.  Youngest bless him did try his best to help me...

I guess in a way this is good for children as they get the “enjoyment” (I use this word very loosely as the bits kept pinging off as I tried to lodge them into place!) of constructing it and then the fun of moving their figures around the scene.  A redeeming feature is the price as its only £9.99 a fan of the show would probably love to add it to their collection, they might be quite happy to persevere with building it!  I gave up eventually after coming close to completing it and waited for hubbie to come home, I do not like admitting defeat but it does happen quite regularly on building projects!!!

Both boys liked the detailing of the figures and the fact you can move their little arms and legs around.  I was quite partial to the red handbag Clara Oswald was modelling, shame I cannot upscale that to my size!  The figures came with a little stand so you could display them proudly, especially if you are more into collecting and admiring than playing.  Youngest used the stand as a shield for the characters and was quite adamant when daddy told him different!

You can see more information and make a purchase on the Character Options website.
