(An ongoing writing project in which I catalog and quantify my extensive TARDIS collection.)
Back in 2013, I got a wild hair up my butt to order a bunch of Doctor Who stuff from ThinkGeek.com. Really, what probably happened is that they had a massive sale, the savings for which really kicked in once you ordered multiple items so I went down my wish list and picked out a few. Naturally all of mine were TARDIS-related and will likely be chronicled here one day. But of the two holiday-related TARDIS items among my purchases, the TARDIS Figural Holiday Ornament was one of them.
As far as Christmas ornaments go, this one is fairly standard. It’s a hollow glass TARDIS, lovingly reproduced in the kind of rounded style as many such glass ornaments of other shapes. This means you can’t go deep on the details, like woodgrain or hard corners, but you can do highlights such as a dusting of blue glitter that gives it that ornament feel without resorting to adding bows and snow, which I’ve seen on some other ornaments. And that stuff’s fine, but it’s not what I wanted. I just wanted your basic TARDIS in super fragile ornament glass form and this one’s pretty sweet in those terms.
The same company that made this one, Kurt Adler, made some others, including different Dalek glass ornament designs that Think Geek still has in stock. They no longer have the TARDIS, but Amazon has it for a very reasonable price. They give it a nearly five star rating, too, so how can I give it anything less than five full TARDI.
