Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $29.99
As soon as the box was opened, the building began. Working non-stop for about two hours, our young tester's finished dragon was proudly displayed to the family. Again and again, our mythical creature creator, has rebuilt sections, changing the design in a variety of ways. The play changes everyday. After our 8-year-old son built his dragon, he began to read The Dragonslayer Academy chapter book series. It was fun to watch how each book's themes were acted out with his Lego dragon. The book-play connections are wonderful.

The product is well-made and the pieces fit together properly. The set includes instructions for eight different creatures, one of which has a wing span of more than two feet.
