Usually Doctor Who tie-ins don’t get too much farther past the cheap cash-in stage, but it has to be said that this Doctor Who TARDIS Mini Fridge is actually worthy of attention, even outside of being a piece of Doctor Who merchandise.
The mini fridge isn’t too big – it holds roughly a six-pack of 12 ounce soda cans – but that’s not the impressive part. What is pretty cool is that with the flick of a switch, you can make the fridge heat up food and drinks instead of cooling them, making it sort of like a portable all-in-one refrigerator-microwave hybrid. Convenience fit for a Time Lord. You also get sweet TARDIS sound effects when you open the door, but you can turn them off once they get annoying after the first few times you use it.
The Doctor Who TARDIS Mini Fridge is selling now on Think Geek for about $80.
