What Is It?
This big goofy dragon with a pink smile is really a wrap-around costume for hot tots. Kids who?re ready to breathe fire can just slip into the adjustable shoulder straps and wrap the dragon?s soft blue and green plush body around their waists, sealing it closed with a Velcro strip. A tab on the dragon?s head lets kids pull him upright, make him look left and right for marauding knights, and gallop around, long green tail trailing behind, just as a tail should.
What We Thought
While we were all a bit too oversized to slip comfortably into the shoulder straps, this wrap-around-costume brought out the Little Kid in the TDmonthly staff members. One tester quickly located the elastic strips that attach the wings to the wrists and started flapping away. Most appreciated the vinyl paw pads and talons, which give this silly toy just the slightest air of realism. But nothing can beat having a tail for the day, especially when it?s lined with purple scales.
Why They?ll Want It
Kids who love dressing up and kids who love plush will want to wrap themselves up in these soft, cuddly costume/toys. Do you play with it, or be it? A little of both. And when play day is done, this Dragon and his companions, such as Flamingo and Duck, easily slip back off again and into bed for some serious nighttime snuggling. ? Alison Marek, 8/17/06
