Does your child dream day and night about dragons? Do they love letting their imagination run wild and playing make-believe or snuggling down to watch their favourite dragon film? If you answered ‘yes’, then maybe it’s time to treat your tot to a magical new dragon toy.

Dragons have dominated childhoods for decades, from mythical stories with damsals in distress to toy figures and popular films, like How to Train Your Dragon. They’re great for sparking imaginative play and there’s plenty of options out there, from cute cuddly toys to fearsome realistic figures.

If you simply want to treat your tot to a new dragon toy or you’re looking for inspiration for an upcoming birthday then look no further, as we’ve rounded up our favourite dragon toys, from dress up items to board games and action figures; we’ve got a toy for whatever their play style.

Now your tot can create their own adventures with Raya, Sitsu and Boun from Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon or reenact their favourite scenes from the film. Suitable for 3 years +, the figure set also comes with five accessories, including a sword, a satchel, a jacket, a flute and a hat for non-stop hours of fun.

Verified customer review: “Looks just like movie characters, bit small but really cute, my daughter loved em.”

Does your little one love a challenge? Then why not treat them to this knight and dragon jigsaw puzzle. This 12 piece wooden puzzle is an absolute steal and suitable for tots aged 3 years and over. You can even personalise it with your child’s name too, making it a perfect present for special occasions.

Verified customer review: “I ordered this little Puzzle for my Great Nephew as an extra little gift for him. He was so excited to see his name. Since he's learning to spell his name and loves puzzles.”

Another brilliant buy for dragon and unicorn fans. Your tot will have plenty of magical fun with this classic game of snake and ladders, brought to life with sweet illustrations of dragons and unicorns. Suitable for 3 to 6 years, the game can be played with four people and includes a double sided board with two different difficulty levels, so your tot can continue playing even once they get a little older.

This book is brilliant for crafty kids, especially if they’re a fan of dragons, mermaids and Peppa Pig. Your tot will be able to decorate 16 pages with a whole host of Peppa Pig themed stickers as she goes on an adventure with lots of mythical and magical creatures.

Playmobil DreamWorks Dragons
Price: $119.99

If your tot is a fan of DreamWorks’ ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ then they’ll love this Playmobile set, which includes the dragon Light Fury, the adorable baby dragon, Night Light and two viking children. The set is suitable for 4 year olds+ as it contains some smaller bow and arrow pieces, so it’s something for your tot to look forward to when they’re a little bit older.

Verified customer review: "Nice toy, the wing mounting system is a bit complicated and tends to fall out for younger kids particularly if they wish to run around with the toy. Otherwise hours of fun!"

If your toddler loves bathtime, then they’ll love creating their own stories beneath the bubbles with this toy knight and cute dragon, which magically lights up when it touches the water. If they don’t enjoy bath time, maybe this is the perfect persuasion tactic - get ready for hours of bath time fun.

Watch your tot fall in love with this sweet-looking blue dragon called Saffire. Suitable for 3 years+, Sapphire is super soft with shiny rainbow wings and adorable big eyes that your little one will instantly fall in love with. It’s the perfect cuddly toy for dragon fans.

Let your little one run wild as they pretend to be a magical dragon themself in this incredible set of eye-catching wings. The red shiny scales look super cool and the wings can be easily attached to your tots back with the elasticated arm straps. Not suitable for children under 3 years.

Verified customer review: "Gorgeous fancy dress with a real scale-like sparkle. Such a shame the arms are held on by velcro as this just isn't suitable for a child's item when they're running round all the time! I'll be sewing ours firm so that we'll still get lots of use out of these."

If your tot is just below 3 years and they still want to take part in some dress up dragon fun, then their imagination can run wild in this adorable baby blue dragon costume. Suitable for 12 months to 2 years, this dragon jumpsuit comes with wings, a dragon face hoodie and even a stick on tail. There’s snap closures on the legs too for easy nappy changes and skid-resistant bottoms on the dragon feet to prevent any accidents.

Verified customer review: “My little boy looked so cute and was very good material.”
