My oldest son loves the movie How to Train Your Dragon and was hoping that a second movie would be made. He was in luck because released this week is a DREAMWORKS Dragons Double DVD and Online Video Game Pack. We were very excited to have the opportunity to review this latest release. My boys couldn't wait until the package arrived. Here is the synopsis of both DVDs as well as the online video game.
Dragons: Gift of the Night Fury-The dragons are back in the exciting next chapter to the Academy Award nominated film, How to Train Your Dragon. The epic story of Hiccup and Toothless continues as they take flight in a thrilling, all-new adventure to discover an island of never-before-seen dragons. Explosive action and fire-breathing excitement collide in this exhilarating Dreamworks Dragons story.
Book Of Dragons-Prepare yourself for adventure, excitement and training as Hiccup, Astrid, Toothless and Gobber tell the legend behind the Book of Dragons and reveal secrets about new, never-before-seen dragons.
Dragons Online Video Game- Test your skills in DRAGONS ONLINE VIDEO GAME where you create your own avatar then go on to battle and train new dragons, win badges and become the ultimate dragon trainer.
Our thoughts: Not only were we sent the Double DVD Pack and Video Game, but we were also sent a gift pack to help us prepare for the movies. We were sent the book "The Art of DREAMWORKS How to Train Your Dragon", 2 Viking helmets, microwave popcorn, and a Smores Kit. With two young boys, this gift pack was a hit. They loved everything-especially the Viking helmets. We enjoyed the movies as well with our favorite being the Gift of the Night Fury. In this movie, the Vikings are preparing to celebrate a holiday similar to our Christmas, when all of their dragons fly off somewhere. Well, almost all of the dragons. Two dragons stay behind-one because his owner has him chained up and of course, Toothless does not fly off since he can not fly without Hiccup. While Hiccup is glad that his dragon is still around, he feels that it is unfair that Toothless can not fly on his own and this encourages him to invent a device to help Toothless fly alone. When Toothless disappears as well, Hiccup goes in search of all of the missing dragons. Where do all of the dragons go? Well I will let you watch the movie yourself. This is a cute movie with a touching ending. I just wish it could have been longer.
If your children love How to Train Your Dragon, this new double DVD pack would make a great holiday gift.
Disclosure: I received a gift pack, as well as a copy of the DVDs to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and my honest opinion of the products.
