Let the Doctor help you get all of your home and office repairs done with this Electronic Sonic Screwdriver! The Doctor's handy-dandy sonic screwdriver is the epitome of multifunctional gizmos. Whether it's driving a screw, picking a lock, or disabling an opponent, this amazing implement seems to exhibit the precise capability required by its owner at the time. Now this marvelous gadget can be yours! The sonic screwdriver measures 8-inches tall x 1-inch wide. This Doctor Who Electronic Sonic Screwdriver Replica features button-activated light and sound effects. It includes a hidden ultraviolet pen and UV light that reveals your secret writing, as well as a spare standard ink nib. Look who's Doctor Who now! Requires 3x "AG13" button-cell batteries, included. The sonic screwdriver is a fictional tool in the British sci-fi television series Doctor Who. Its most common function is to operate virtually any lock, mechanical or electronic, and thus open doors for escape or exploration. It has also been used for repairing equipment, as an offensive weapon, and occasionally even to drive screws. Like the TARDIS, it has become one of the icons of the program and is closely associated with the Doctor.

There are pen nibs that can be added on to the screwdriver. I actually withheld those from my nephew due to wanting to avoid the risk of him drawing on everything (regardless if the ink is "invisible"). He is not even aware that it came with pen add-ons, so I would recommend to any parents who are concerned to just remove them. I actually plan to order a second one for myself, and keep it in my purse. I WILL use the pen nibs, because not only does it give me a fun functional purpose to use it for..... BUT.... I also get giggles over the thought of whipping this out when people have technical malfunctions with things. :) Overall, this is a great replica. I will provide some videos and photos of it in use by the Tenth Doctor Mini-Me.
I've had this thing for about a year now, I use the regular pen nib quite often and it's currently not showing signs of running out of ink. The nib with the UV ink, unfortunately was lost.
That is the biggest issue I have with the item. The instruction pamphlet that comes with it says that you can order replacement nibs from customer service. You can not currently just order replacement nibs from Amazon, nor are they currently listed in the "Spare Parts" section of the Character-Online customer service website. (Though there are spare Dalek parts which is kind of awesome.) You have to call the company's customer service department which is in the UK. So unless you want to call long distance and pay shipping from the UK for pen nibs? Do not loose them. (This may change, I hope it does.)
Onto the good stuff!
I really love owning this thing. A few days ago I had a blackout at night and (due to a recent move) I couldn't find my flashlight, but I was using this thing to make some notes. So I used it to find my keys and my wallet to go out and buy a proper flashlight and some candles. Doing that was more fun then I should probably admit in a public forum. Secondly, the UV ink is tangentially educational. Your child likes Doctor Who, you get them this pen, they write secret messages on the psychic paper and say "Cool! How does that work?" They then become interested in what UV light is, learn all sorts interesting stuff about wavelengths and "Yay! Science is fun!"
If you're a cosplayer through, that's not really your concern. From close up and far away it looks good, it has the right moving parts, lights up and makes the noise. It comes with batteries. I don't know what more you could ask for.
Just don't misplace the pen nibs.
People also need to keep in mind that - THIS IS A TOY. Why they would expect such high quality in the first place baffles me. Go to a local store and look at toys price in the 20-30 dollar range, Their quality is far from the best (not to say that this sonic isn't good quality because I'd certainly say it's a step up from the norm). It's a toy so why expect the best when common sense tells you not to. If you wanted something better then that generally means you have to spend a lot more. Just accept it as a toy and move on.
Note - The 11th Doctor's sonic is a big step up. Doesn't have the pen part that the 10th Doctor's has and has a lot more features.
