Idea: Toddler TARDIS Console

About a month ago my son learned to pull himself up to stand on his own. Now that he can stand, he really enjoys his LeapFrog Learning Table. It’s about waist high and has all sorts of knobs and dials and levers and switches that trigger sound effects, lights and music. As he makes his away around the table fiddling with knobs and switches I noticed that he looks a lot like Doctor Who doing the same thing in the TARDIS.

Then it hit me: someone should really make a TARDIS console for babies.

Kids will love the bright flashing lights, the numerous knobs to turn and levers to flip, the central piston, the signature TARDIS groan, and other sound effects and clips featuring characters from the show. One button would play the theme song, and another button would trigger a Dalek voice reciting the alphabet. That’s sure to be a favorite feature of parents and kids alike.

There’s no better way to teach your baby Time Lord about wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.


Not quite TARDIS but my son has a “mission control” that was made with surplus electronics parts by brother-in-law had in his shop.

The question is, how do we get Moffat et al to notice this idea and run with it! I want it in time for my youngest to play with it!

Love it! Better hurry before someone steals that idea.

That is brilliant.

For that matter, I’d love to see a TARDIS play house. (I’m not sure how you could get it to be bigger on the inside, though.)

Wish it can be gotten for his first birthday! Love the graphics!

Love it!! I recently became an Uncle and would love to get one for my nephew.
You could make a Sonic Screwdriver rattle to go with it…
