Doctor Who Ride Daleks (Video)

If you didn’t think these looked naff before (is it me, or do they look inflatable?) you certainly will after viewing this video…

Yes, it’s the Doctor Who Ride-in Daleks, also known here at K Towers as the “WTF?Daleks” which are set to take the recession hit British family by storm this Christmas, leading to house repossessions and arguments over whether dad can squeeze behind the controls.

Available for around £200 each these aren’t the kind of toys you can run around the living room either, so get set for all manner of kitchen-related accidents during the Christmas roast.

Are we being overly negative? Or are Doctor Who Ride-in Daleks the carbuncles that we suspect they are?

  1. Are they inflatable… Or some strange form of giant plush toy? Probably the former.

    They need to make a full-sized version for adults that looks (and is) real. Then I might write a check and get one.

    I’ve seen articles elsewhere that confirm they are, indeed, inflatable. WTF?Dalek just about sums it up!

    Well….they’re toys for little kids. Of course they’re inflatable. Safer for them and probably a LOT cheaper than actually buying a 5 foot tall hard plastic shell Dalek.

    The next logical step is bumper-car Daleks, at some kind of an amusement park. Or something.

    In the 1960′s there was this Dalek costume thing that came complete with gun, arm and eye and look pretty neat. These thing are truly WTF

    Are we being overly negative? Too right! These are brilliant! I want one! Except I’m too big to fit inside :-( How can you not love them? Oh, right shiny new Victory of the Daleks sylee. But c’mon! They’re awesome!
