Following up on the last blog post, I have decided to write up on Dragons too!
Dragons are awesome. I don’t think you need me to tell you that. But, as I said in my last blog (click here to read it if you haven’t already), unicorns are stereotyped for girls, and it seems a lot of dragons are stereotyped for boys. Well, that doesn’t have to be the case at MiniZoo. From a female point of view, I think dragons are pretty cool. Dragons are also my mum’s favourite, and she even has a little collection of dragon figurines in her bedroom (sorry mum 😜).
For boys AND girls, younger or older, dragons can be for everyone. So here are my top picks for dragons. Simply click any of the images to view the product.
The Classic Dragon
Mojo Steel Dragon
To me, a ‘classic’ dragon would be a fire-breathing dragon. It would have one head, a fully scaled body, no armour and painted in a dark colour.
Papo Articulated Dragon
has two great ‘classic’ dragons, however they are not shown breathing fire. For classic Fire-Breathing Dragons, I would recommend those of the Papo range
The Not so Classic Dragon
Looking for something extra unique? Many of the toy figurine brands have very creative minds that work for them, and this is clearly shown through their mythological range. Schleich has a Ram-headed dragon, Papo has a Dragon Mutant, Cyber Dragon and Dragon Man, and Safari Ltd has a Desert Dragon which looks like a mythological Scorpion. These ‘other’ dragons are truly something special and make for a unique piece in your collection.
The Safari Ltd Dragon
Safari Ltd has produced a great range of Dragon figures. They really think about their fans and mix their collection up, so there is something for everyone. This year, they released ten brand new dragons. See them all here.
A pleasant surprise was that a lot of the new dragons were made suitable for both genders! The Princess Dragon, the Flower Dragon and the Love Dragon are just a few that are perfectly suited for little (or big) girls who want to add something extra special to their collection. I personally recommend the Princess Dragon, she is stunning!
The Multi-Headed Dragon
Why have one head, when you can have two? Or three?! Multi-headed dragons are popular for mythological playtime when you need to fight more than one opponent. Some great multi-headed dragons include Safari Ltd’s three headed fire dragon, the Bullyland three headed orange dragon, and, of course, Papo’s great range of two-headed dragons.
The Dragon Rider
Thanks to the ‘How to Train Your Dragon‘ movie series, dragon riders have become very popular in the world of imaginative play. Little boys and girls love the thought of having a mythological creature of such power as their own pet. Thanks to some great brands, this dream has become a reality! Find Dragons with riders from Schleich, Bullyland and Safari Ltd. Although suitable for both genders, none of these have female riders, unfortunately. We hope to see these brands produce a female dragon rider in the near future.
The Translucent Dragon
Papo have some great translucent dragon toys. Featuring amazing colours like pink, emerald, glow-in-the-dark, rainbow, and more, these fire-breathing dragons are great for girls too. Shine a light through the other side of them, and watch them glow!
The Dragon Knight
There is a large range of Dragon Knights at MiniZoo. These awesome knights ride horses with a dragon as their emblem. Papo and Schleich are the best brands for these figures. Add to your collection with some medieval Dragon knights!
It was so hard to pick only a few dragons to showcase here, as there really is a great variety of dragon figurine online. If you want to see many, many more that are now available, just click here to take you there.
