Toothless first appeared in the movie How To Train A Dragon in 2010. He is rescued by Hiccup as his tail was injured, preventing it from flying normally. Hiccup earns the dragon’s trust and begins to care for it. He names the Night Fury dragon “Toothless”, for its retractable teeth. Defenders of Berk Giant Firebreathing Toothless is an action Figure who is able to breath out steam. He also glows blue fire and fires glow in the dark projectiles from his mouth! This is suitable for ages 4 and above. It requires 3 AAA batteries for operation (not included). It comes with 2 glow in the dark projectiles, water bottle, spare foam container, instructions and figure with tail.
I found it hard to push the tail into the body. I had to fully disassemble the top of the toy (all four screws found on the bottom) to get the tail on. The instructions show that the tail pushes right into the body. However, the gaps were way too small to fit into the tail. Once the top is off, I slid the tail into the body and closed the top back. I then took a bowl of water to fill up the water bottle and squirted it into the back of the dragon’s water tank. The foam will soaked up the water.
Then it’s just a case of inserting the batteries and turning on. Pressing the right ear will shoot out the projectile, steam and the blue light will glow. Pressing the left ear, the dragon will just breathe out steam and the blue light will glow. There are three posable human dragon figures that can ride the dragon. The wings are easy to slide out and measures over 55 cm in width.

My children were fascinated with the steam and they forgot that there is a projectile when pressing the right ear. So I had to remind them not to place their face in front of the dragon’s mouth to see the steam as the projectile will shoot at them.
Both of my children love it and wishes that Hiccup is included in the set. They would love to let Hiccup fly with toothless. The figure is very well made with nice attention to detail. The ears are soft to press unlike other toys with hard buttons when launching projectiles. This is a unique toy and would make a great Christmas gift to any fans of How To Train A Dragon.
