Stockings. They are the bane of Christmas for some. They seem to be related to the TARDIS with their bigger-on-the-inside technology. Sometimes those things just seem to be impossible to fill. Fear not, Padawan! GeekMom has suggestions for your stockings, too.

Mixel Max

Lego Mixels. These are small Lego monster kits. From the Lego site: “Torts has bulky feet and is the slowest moving of the Glorp Corp tribe from the swamps. A slob who enjoys playing for thrills, Torts shoots gloopy, green slime from its hands. Everything sticks to this turtle-like creature—which is great fun when goofing around and perfect for catching a Nixel or two!” $4.99

Doctor Who Mini-Kits and Booklets. Running Press’ Doctor Who figure kits have nifty little collectible figures for any Whovian or collector, including a light-up TARDIS, a rolling Dalek, a stately Cyberman Bust, and a mini light-up replica of the Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. The latest addition hearkens back to the Fourth Doctor’s reign with a K-9 figure who lights-up and utters his cute little catchphrase, “Affirmative, Master.” These little boxed sets include a small booklet on the history of the included item. They are small and inexpensive enough for stocking stuffers or gift exchanges.  $9.59-$12.95
