Ducktor Who is a must-have for Doctor Who fans
everywhere. Perfect for time travelling adventures in the
bath. Place the Glow in the Duck in water and watch
the water-activated LED bulbs light up and change colour inside
the duck. The light goes out when the duck is removed from
you know a Doctor Who fan who insists on buying everything
from the planet Gallifrey, then this could be the ultimate
gift for them. It won't break the bank and is sure to brighten
up bath times - and could even be used to entice young children
into the bath more regularly. When
you place this in the water it glows, with the colour changing
as it bobs around.
Who consist of a sealed unit containing batteries and
LED bulbs. According to the blurb on the back of the box the
battery lifetime of the duck is about 45 hours use - this
is the equivalent of 180, fifteen minute baths. The
only problem I had with this is that the unit is sealed (with
what appears to be glue) and the instructions claim that the
battery is none replaceable. The odd thing is that the bottom
looks like it would come off, if someone hadn't glued it shut.
I've bought items like this before where it is claimed that
it is not possible to replace the battery, but after dismantling
them I've discovered that this was obviously just a ploy to
get you to go back and buy another one once the battery has
be perfectly honest though, you should own a dozen or more
of these and sit in the bath with the lights off. About the
best fun you can have in the bath... alone... possibly.
Ducktor Who toy is better or worse than the Duck
version - depending on what you want from it. On the negative
side this is just a normal rubber duck, but with a scarf painted
on it - the Duck Fadar model at least has a Darth Vader
style helmet that actually makes it look like a Star Wars
the plus side, Ducktor Who does light up fully (the
Duck Fadar duck's light could only be seen through
its body and eyes because of the aforementioned helmet).
is still one of the best pocket money priced items I've seen
in a long time. And one that is sure to brings hours of fun
to its owner.
