TARDIS style birdhouse inspired by the famous blue police telephone boxes which also inspired the popular TARDIS. A pop culture icon, the blue police call boxes were common in London between 1929 and 1969 and used as a means of direct communication between the public, or the officer on the beat, and the police station. In 1963 the British Broadcasting Corporation modeled the TARDIS after the blue police box for the Doctor Who television series as the home and vehicle in which the Doctor travels thru Time and Relative Dimension in Space.

The police call boxes had a small door panel in the front with instructions to pull open and use the phone for immediate advice and assistance. Inside the concrete structure itself was a desk used as a temporary office by the police. Like telephone poles here in the states, it wasn’t uncommon to find advertisements and postings placed on the blue box.

In one of the panels on the side of the Tardis you may choose to have a personalized "notice/proclamation" for a birthday, anniversary, new heir to the universe, or a personal thought, favorite quote, or a few words of a favorite song.

Whether dangling in space or materialized on a shelf, desk, or fireplace mantle, the London Blue Box Tardis birdhouse is a spectacle. Constructed to appropriate dimensions to be functional for a variety of nesting backyard birds, with proper drainage and ventilation as part of the design. The front opens for cleaning and an eye hook is attached for hanging. Clear coated exterior finish adds U.V. and weather resistance.

Makes an excellent decorative addition to any home. Hanging in a kitchen, family room, sun room, or screened porch, perched on a fireplace mantle, sitting on a shelf or side table, or on a desk at home or in the office, this iconic London Blue Box Tardis birdhouse will complement any decorating style. You may even be asked if it’s bigger inside than it appears. It’s also a wonderful house warming gift for family, friends, and neighbors moving into a new home – especially Doctor Who fans.

All of my birdhouses are my own design and because each is individually hand-crafted no two will be exactly alike. Allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery.
