The Doctor is back! Let's celebrate with Doctor Who-themed home goods #Pop Culture#Shopping#Doctor Who#geeky#home goods#tv August 31 2012 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin I bet NONE of you will be surprised to find out that I just purchased this Doctor Who travel mug — or this travel-mug shaped TARDIS, which is how I like to think of it — from Think Geek. I'm going to fill it with fucking champagne (I've been saving a bottle for such an occasion) while I watch the premier of Doctor Who on Saturday September 1st! This reminds me, do we have any Whovians in the house? Where my nerds at? This home goods post is for YOU: The Doctor Who-themed housewares roundup. All things TARDIS blue, timey wimey, wibbly wobbly, bigger-y on the inside-y, and perfect for your Whovian habitat. If you've been looking for a reason to buy something cool (you know, like a bow tie), do as I did and use the big premier as the perfect excuse to do a little clicking… Every living room needs a TARDIS vinyl wall decal, am I right? This combines two of my favorite things — the TARDIS and the iPhone — to create a smart safe. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play, set your secret combination, and you're ready to store your valuables in the TARDIS, just like The Doctor himself. To unlock your TARDIS, slide your smartphone into the slot up top until it activates the pressure switch inside. Launch the app and enter your secret code. The light will blink, the TARDIS will make materializing sounds, and the door will pop open. Or you can go lower-tech with THIS TARDIS safe and key. Related Post Let's celebrate the return of Game of Thrones with themed home goods! I know we have a lot of TV-loving Homies. Last time I geeked out about the return of Doctor Who, I did a Doctor Who-themed... Read more If you always wanted your own Van Gogh-does-the-TARDIS print, you can get one now. Or maybe you prefer the Dalek propaganda poster, or the other two promo prints. Check 'em out. Amazon also has a great collection of Doctor Who posters, my favorite being the Dalek Blueprint. Speaking of Daleks, I've been thinking about getting a new alarm clock, and I think the Dalek Projection Clock just might be my next purchase. Then again, I am going to Maui soon, so maybe I should snatch up the coolest damn beach towel in this world, and all of the others. Perhaps you don't need a towel, but you are in the market for a bathrobe. I can't believe I'm saying this but, there are TWO kinds of Doctor Who bathrobes — would you prefer TARDIS or Time Lord? Ermahgerd! TARDIS salt and pepper shakers. I'm dying, they're so cute. Will you guys laugh at me when I tell you that I have the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver flashlight in my bedside table in case of an emergency? Can you see me after the earthquake hits, running around my apartment waving the sonic screwdriver in full-on panic mode? Of course, you can also get a sonic screwdriver that's also a pen, or one that's actually a screwdriver! The TARDIS cookie jar makes authentic TARDIS noises when you open the lid. The ONLY thing keeping me from purchasing this TARDIS lunch box is the fact that I already have THREE Star Wars lunch boxes, and no place go have lunch, or… you know… store things. But, if someone else buys this for me… you know… I wouldn't throw it out. When (and I mean "when") I buy this TARDIS USB hub, I can totally write this off. It's for work! The light and sound effects are triggered when you plug into the port — how cool is that!? Haven't you always wanted to squeeze an Adipose? Now you can with the Adipose stress toy! I love the disappearing/re-appearing TARDIS on this coffee mug. Make mornings a little better with this bad boy. For cold beverages, you gotta get this TARDIS water bottle! Trust the doctor to keep your coffee table ring-free with this funky coaster set. I'm KICKING myself for not re-covering my vintage love seat in this Doctor Who toile pattern. I just re-covered it in regular, non-nerdy toile. Sad. Ermagerd, I really want this Cyberman bottle stopper! Wine + Doctor Who = perfection. Ooh, it also comes in Dalek. Speaking of drinking… who's gonna grab a drink and virtually watch the premier of Doctor Who with me? Follow me on Twitter and we can tweet about it together! I'm so excited, Homies.

My mom asked for gift recommendations, so I sent her a bunch of ThinkGeek links. He is now the proud owner of an exploding Van Gogh TARDIS t-shirt, and another that says "You never forget your first doctor." (And that Japanese Dark Side one, because we met while living over there, and one that says "I have a cunning plan" because we've cunningly gotten my mom addicted to Blackadder.) This from the girl who had the mini Tardis in her wedding bouquet. SO EXCITED FOR TOMORROW NIGHT! Editing to add: that cookie jar is JUST what my kitchen is lacking. 1 agrees Reply Yeah, this right here, TOTALLY works as a great birthday idea roundup for me. 😉 Reply I have that cookie jar. It is awesome. You should absolutely get one! 1 agrees Reply We have the Dalek blueprint poster in our computer/craft room. My husband's an engineer and loves it so much. The TARDIS cookie jar held cards at our wedding and now sits in our living room. Husband just bought the 10in Adipose plushie which should be arriving todaaaaay! 1 agrees Reply You're killing me, Smalls! I want ALL OF THIS STUFF! I can't wait to watch this weekend, Labor Day, Shmabor Day, it's Doctor Who Time! 4 agree Reply AMEN, SISTA'! Reply Omg, I'm loving this entire post! Also, I had no idea how much Dr. Who stuff Amazon has for sale! Reply I have the Dalek Victory poster in my office; it was the first personal thing I put up after years here, I just couldn't resist. 😉 I've discovered a few fellow office Whovians as a result. I just wish more of the cool posters and iphone covers and the like were *tenth* doctor; Matt Smith is cool, but Tennant is *my* Doctor. Folks may also get a kick out of these "police box" chocolate bars, as guilty as I feel about posting a link to my own stuff: http://blog.chocolatesbyariel.com/?p=23 (That's just a photo for inspiration, not a sales link.) They look *really* awesome when painted, which photo and tutorial I really do need to get posted one of these days. Because really, who *doesn't* want a chocolate Tardis? Sadly, they're a little hard to make at home just because of the master (we had ours 3d printed by a friend), but I'll bet you could make one out of balsa wood… 3 agree Reply I know what u mean with the tenth doctor. I think its funny, though. The actor is david TENnent, who plays the TENth doctor! David is sexy. Reply David Tennant is a fox. Reply I have the disappearing TARDIS mug – and I have been very cautious in using/washing it, but the decal still started peeling just over a month after I bought it. SAD FACE. Reply I just got back from a trip to London and the highlight was seeing the REAL POLICE BOX at Earl's Court! I hugged it. I dressed up as the TARDIS last year for Halloween and again to go to the renaissance festival this summer. (Because if you think about it, there is no setting that is inappropriate for Doctor Who costumery.) 4 agree Reply OK, that is totally awesome. Did you do a boxy tardis, or one of the interesting interpretations? (I saw someone with a corset-and-skirt dalek costume once that just rocked.) 1 agrees Reply Yeah, seriously, we demand pictures of this costume! 1 agrees Reply Both costumes were last-minute, but one day I'd like to sew a TARDIS dress costume. 🙂 http://alissadale.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/doctor-who-costumes/ 3 agree Reply That. is. AWESOME. 1 agrees Reply Wow! Just wow!! Reply I saw a pic of a tardis dress once and part of it overlapped another and when you opened it it looked like the inside of elleven's tardis Reply Oh, do you mean THIS dress?: http://offbeathome.com/2013/01/tardis-dress Reply might have to work a side job so I can stealthy buy the salt and pepper shakers. already got the cookie jar, exploding tardis, the lunch tine, mug and coasters (comic con exclusives) and the 11th doctor's sonic screwdriver. Still looking for the perfect River Song journal. And will get the adipose toy when I have a kid and it will secretly be mine whilst immersing future generations in awesome…….. also WTB a close friend with BBC… Slowly getting ALL THE DOCTOR THINGS! 1 agrees Reply FYI: the USB hub is NOT reliable. it still looks neat, however, and i keep it to look pretty on my desk, but the sucker died within 2 weeks of plugging it into my computer. Reply Aw man! Really? That bums me out like you wouldn't believe. Reply oh, trust me, i do believe it. i was just as bummed. i EARNED that sucker after saving and hoarding my geek points FOREVER, and to have it break so quickly was a huge downer. i never contacted TG to get a replacement, because i didn't want to risk having another one break. this one still makes noise and flashes, so i'm happy enough. just can't use it for its intended purpose. Reply Mine works just fine, and I've had it a few months now… Odd, and very sad 🙁 Reply I've had mine for about a year (also saved up Think Geek points)and although the stickers came off(easily fixed with glue), it works great! Reply Mine still works well. We have used it daily for over a year and we have a 12 month old grabbing everything. I will leave a review on their site if/when it breaks. Reply For a couple of days when I was away doing research, a Tardis turned up outside King's College, Cambridge. All my friends have their picture with it. Sad face. I genuinely don't know if that's a spoiler or not… perhaps they were filming in Cambridge…?!? 3 agree Reply ermagerd!!! Dude and I just bought a TARDIS BLUE PT Cruiser (eek!) and we wanna fully deck it out in DW glory. Any idea where to get awesome window decals? Seat covers? Floor mats? This is getting serious, folks http://www.flickr.com/photos/36452119@N08/7901986408/ 1 agrees Reply Yes! Car stuff: I saw a car with this decal on it yesterday. Made my heart sing. My other car is a TARDIS license plate! I think I'm gonna get this. Or this, more subtle, "My other ride is a TARDIS" license plate. Whovian bumper sticker! HA! This decal sticker is hilarious. And comes in different colors. Liiiike TARDIS blue to match your car! 3 agree Reply thank you! Reply I have that first decal on a rear window of my car! Woohoo! Wait…you weren't in Maine, where you? Reply No, I wish! I want to go to Maine. I was in West Hollywood, where I RARELY see nerd references on cars. Reply Bummer, it would have been a fantastic coincidence if you had seen MY car. You should visit Maine anyway, I'll tell you all the best ice cream places. I bought this in white. It lives on the rear window of my car. And it is beautiful. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/76986185 Reply link doesn't work! What is the seller's name?? Reply Ahh, jealous! If I ever have the option, I'd LOVE to have a blue car and deck it out with Doctor Who stuff. 1 agrees Reply This entire post is so relevant to my life, I can't even tell you. 2 agree Reply I already own a bunch of this stuff, but now I want to go and buy the rest of it as well! I plan to watch the premiere while wearing my TARDIS damask print dress, drinking tea from one (or both?) of my TARDIS mugs and eating cookies from my TARDIS cookie jar. It shall be a good day. Reply This is my favorite: http://www.etsy.com/listing/82548864/tardis-teapot-made-to-order-handmade She also has other items. Reply Why am I such a poor graduate student? In other news, I reccomend ravelry for awesome knitting patterns. I made doctor who dish cloths for a friend abroad, and myself a tardis iPhone cozy(because it is infinitely bigger on the inside). Excellent for crafty ways to say "I am a GIANT geek, because Geeks are cool!" Reply I have so many of the things listed here — both in the article itself and in the comments. The TARDIS cookie jar will make your entire cookie eating experience ten times better. Also, insofar as the dematerializing TARDIS mug goes, DO NOT put it in the dish washer. I had to replace mine because I foolishly didn't think before putting it in with my other mugs. My parents also just bought me a vanity plate for my birthday that says "DCTORWHO" to go with the plate frame. I HAVE NO REGRETS. 1 agrees Reply I heart all the Doctor Who stuff! I have the Tardis cookie jar, and the only thing is that the entire house can hear you when you grab a cookie. So not good for the stealth snacking, but cool looking anyway. Reply Must. Control. Myself to not go buy all this Doctor Whogoodness. But I want TO BUY ALL THE WHOVIAN THINGS!….okay….I must learn to control myself better… It doesn't help that Doctor Who time is family time on my husband's side. They all LOVE Doctor Who too. His mom has a remote control Dalek and its killing me not to buy one too. Reply Love this! I sell Dr. Who coasters in my etsy shop too and they are one of my most viewed items! Reply At the risk of sounding stupid. Where are my friends in America watching the new episodes? We don't have cable… What website can I see it on the soonest? I'm dying! Reply I want to know this too! Reply I have the Tardis lunchbox (Only one of my coworkers "gets it", the rest think I have it cuz I work for a police department…*sigh*), the Van Gogh poster (for when we have a house to put it in), and a Tardis decal on my car. Also…HELP! I do not have a TV at my house, and for the summer I also do not have internet access at home. I'm going to stay late at work to watch the Doctor Who episodes late on the internet. What's the best website to watch the new episodes? Anyone know? Reply Oh, I really hope someone responds to this – I really want to figure out how to watch them too! Reply You know, I tried to get a good answer for this, but I got nothing. I'm watching them all on cable. But yeah, I hope SOMEONE can drop some knowledge! Reply We have a PS3, and my husband just downloaded the new episode on the PS3 network. Hope that helps some people! Reply K sorry I was wrong….we watched it through Amazon Prime (an alternative to Netflix). New episodes of certain shows can be downloaded the day after they air. Reply I ended up watching it with Amazon Prime too. I quit Netflix after their price increase fiasco, and swapped to Amazon Prime. Less options for watching instantly…but I order a lot of stuff online and I like the free shipping. Anyway, you can watch Doctor Who on Amazon the day after, but it costs $2.99 an episode. I'll suck it up and just pay until we move to our winter apartment, which has cable. Reply It's also available on Zune through the XBox 360. Price is about the same as Amazon, I believe. (It's all in points, and I never know what the point to money conversion is.) Reply I actually have some of these items on my Amazon wedding registry… >.> lol I am SO happy I chose to make the Amazon registry… so much cool stuff!!! Reply I celebrated my birthday this weekend and since the theme was Blue, I acquired a large amount of Doctor Who swag thanks to all my friends who know me so well. I got the travel mug and adapose, as well as many other fun items! They will go perfect in my Doctor Who themed guest room which I will share in the future. <3 Reply Doctor Who themed guest room!??? Jesus where has this been all my life? 😉 4 agree Reply Is it a dead giveaway that the color scheme in my new living room is TARDIS blue and one of the only knicknacks sitting on shelves are two TARDIS mugs with tops? And next in line is a TARDIS print for the wall? The toile fabric would be just the thing for the chairs… hmmm Reply My mother not so subtly pointed out that recovering some of her furniture in that toile for, say, an anniversary present, would not be unappreciated. Reply Your mother is all kinds of awesome. 1 agrees Reply Yup, old school Tom Baker fan. They have some awesome vintage Who swag. Reply This would be the perfect accessory for a TARDIS car: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79545959/tardis-custom-car-emblem 1 agrees Reply By boyfriend's truck is Tardis blue. We want to turn it into a Tardis. I want to find the "Police public call Box" sign as a window decal for the rear windshield, but can only find stickers of the Tardis. Reply We keep our Sonic Screwdrivers (Doctors 10/11) in a decorative pitcher next to the couch in the living room. This makes for easy access in case someone tries to break in the front door. We bought the Victory and Dalek Blueprint posters recently and I can't wait to put them up! Reply …I actually *did* use my Ten's sonic screwdriver during the earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand. IT'S REALLY HELPFUL. also once we finish setting up our lounge, you are so on for a game of spot-the-nerd-stuff. Reply Dies anyone know where i can get doctor who seat covers for my car??????? 1 agrees Reply We had my oldest daughters "Birthday dinner" tonight. … a month late. She has been ill so when she is able she is thowing a "Timey whimey " party .. "Travel back in time to my birthday! " Anyway I gave her the BEST pendant. It is a.emerald-cut deep blue sapphire with two smaller baguette cubic.zirconias in top…. ITS THE TARDIS! 🙂 Ihave no idea how to post a pic here 🙁 Every other Dr Who fan loves it. Its a.secret way of showing your Whovian pride with only those in the know knowing. Reply Wish they made bad wolf Tardis car seat covers for my car. Would love to get my hands on that. lol Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
