Dalek vs Teletubbies

The must-have Christmas gift of 2009 is likely to be a dust up between two BBC shared licence products who are experiencing a second wind – the Daleks and the Teletubbies.


And with the Dalek Voice Changer Helmet set to add to the success of previous voice changers Dalek Sec and the Cyberman, the stakes are high…

Toy store Hamleys has unveiled its hot picks for 2008, and warns parents to buy early to avoid disappointment.

Top of the list is the £39 Doctor Who Dalek mask, which changes a child’s voice. The Daleks were in the climax of the recent BBC1 series, attracting 10million viewers.

And a surprise inclusion is the Dance With Me Teletubbies. The giggling, dancing toys, which cost £39.99, first caused a sensation 10 years ago.

Charlotte Chisnall at the Central London store said: "All the signs are they’ll be a huge hit."

And with "Series 4" figures and classic series figure ranges courtesy of master toy licensee Character, it looks like a very Whoey Christmas… there’s more on the Dalek Helmet at The Gadget Monkey!
