One of the best things about movies for kids is they often become a series of movies. While creating a movie franchise for kids has become the norm in recent years, not all are created equal. The How to Train Your Dragon franchise has been arguably one of the best. In addition to the now three movies, there is also an animated series on Netflix. The third film in the franchise, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World had the biggest opening weekend of 2019, and now toy company Playmobil is releasing a line of toys to coincide with the movie.
For their collaboration with DreamWorks, Playmobil is releasing eight playsets from the new Dragons movie. All of our favorite characters from the films, Hiccup, Astrid, and Toothless are there, as well as the newest characters. This includes the newest dragon, Light Fury and a couple new baby dragons! If you think they're cute on screen, baby dragon toys are just as cute. Maybe cuter because you can put them in the palm of your hand.
This set ($40) includes Hiccup and Toothless with a baby dragon. Toothless even shoots arrows out of his mouth.
This Light Fury set ($40) comes with a baby dragon and two young children. Like Toothless, Light Fury also shoots arrows out of her mouth.
But Light Fury isn't the only new character to get the toy treatment. Every movie has a bad guy, and in How to Train Your Dragon III, that bad guy is Grimmel, who starts trouble in the peaceful world where dragons and Vikings co-exist alongside his dragon Death Gripper.
In their set ($30) Grimmel comes with a weapon and grappling hook.
Also returning are Hiccup's good friends Snotlout, Fishlegs, and Ruffnut and Tuffnut. All of the humans have new tricked out flight suits that aid them in their current battle.
Here are Ruffnut and Tuffnut ($10) in their new flight suits.
You can get the toys directly from the Playmobil website, as well as most major retailers where toys are sold. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is currently playing in theaters, so run, don't walk.
