My Opinion

My Rating:

Minecraft Ender Dragon  – 96 /100

 

I’ve given the Minecraft Ender Dragon a high rating as I think it is a very good way of starting a child off on a collectable hobby but also a toy that can be played with, as well as an additional character with other Minecraft sets such as the lego sets as this really enhances a child’s imagination.

Benefits of the product

I think as a parent like some of you reading this article are, it is a good idea to start your child of collecting a series, especially in a niche that they have an interest in as this I believe can sow the seeds for a variety of attributes in later life such as:

  • Building confidence.
  • Improving organisational skills.
  • Learn problem-solving.
  • Goal Setting.
  • Gaining attention to detail.
  • patience to let things grow (ideal for saving money when they are older)

I know I’m getting quite deep here but think about it, We have to have the patience to grow and nurture a savings plan for example and the earlier you start the better!

In order to add to their collection a child will normally do chores to earn the reward of a treat so there we have goal setting and problem-solving of how can they get their next toy.

The Minecraft ender dragon is a toy from a collection series you can add to and create that hobby and that mindset in your child or relative or for yourself!

 

 

 

Product Description and Features

Ender DragonThe Minecraft Ender Dragon toy has a 19-inch wingspan and is over 20 inches long making it one of the largest Minecraft action figures to collect.

Ender Dragon also has a mouth that opens and closes along with tail and neck flexibility which enables it to re-create the 4 modes it uses in the game they are:  attack: circling, strafing, charging and perching.

 

 

The wings and legs on the ender dragon are fully articulated which adds to the attributes already on the toy making it agile and versatile for children’s play. This helps to bring that imagination into play. I don’t know about you but I used to love listening to my kids play with there toys and listen to the running commentary, for me it was utter contentment.

Below is a close up of the dragon’s mouth which as mentioned opens and closes without a lot of effort from little fingers.

Who is the Product for?

The ender dragon is ideal for children over 6 years of age. This is the suggested minimum age due having a few smaller parts on it that can cause choking hazards with smaller children as let’s face it, they like to put things in their mouths so this is a sensible age although I would supervise children as old as 7 or 8 on this one personally,

I have discussed the product and why I think it is a good toy to buy your child but also what about adults? There are plenty of adults out there who love Minecraft as well and also plenty who collect toy figures as an investment. If you leave this in the box it will eventually grow in value.

What I like about the Product

Simply I like the versatility of the toy and I think it can be used as an action figure for many different scenarios and toy niches. Can you imagine Lego Ninjago figures battling an Ender Dragon!

The toy is bigger than expected when it is put together so compared to a lot of toys out there, it is value for money and provides entertainment for the children.

In my opinion, the figure itself is highly detailed and very durable for play.

What I don’t like about the Product

One thing I don’t like about the product is sometimes it is difficult to get the Ender Dragon to stand properly because of the length of the tail. You have to get the balance correct. That’s the only thing that annoyed me a little but then it never affected my son when he was playing with it.

Its something to bear in mind it this is going to stand on a shelf or bedroom desk.

Do you want to go larger?

If this toy is not big enough for you then there is a larger version that has glowing purple eyes and fires plastic disks from its snapping jaws.

I will be adding a review on this shortly but in the meantime…..

This is a much larger version and can be bought on Amazon for the best deal. This Imposing Ender Dragon has double-hinged wings that flap and an adjustable tail.

This version is more of an action figure than a collectable and is extremely hardy.

Batteries are required for this version as the eyes glow purple and there are also sound effects and are included.

You can buy this through amazon prime although more expensive it is much larger and has many more features on it.

The product dimensions of this ender dragon are: 13 x 20 x 7.5 inches

  1. Minecraft has been so popular for my daughter and all of her friends for over the past 3 years or so, I’m kind of surprised that it is still a game that they play to be honest. My daughter even watches YouTubers play, which I understand, because sometimes I watch the videos with her, and they are entertaining.

    I might have to drop a few hints to see if she would like this, even though she is 10, she does like to collect figures and dolls. 

    1. Hi James 

      It’s still quite popular to be honest, my 6 year old nephew has just started playing it and my youngest son who is 12 has a  Minecraft club in his school. 

      Some junior schools even have classes involving Minecraft so there maybe a few years left for your daughter yet.

      It’s funny you should mention the you tube videos as my son still watches them although he doesn’t  play anymore.

      Thankfully he still advises me! 

  2. I quite like this angle of collectables, as they offer some kind of education as opposed to the more traditional model figures etc (that end up staying in their packaging to keep their value). 

    Star Wars toys have also gone down this avenue, with click-lock models instead of basic toy models – as you point out, they help children develop and make them think due to problem solving in construction. 

    Really cool toy and a great gift for Christmas! 

    1. Thanks Chris 

      I’m glad you agree with my thinking. As a game Minecraft is educational so I wanted to have this take on this review.

  3. This post is a great review of Minecraft Ender Dragon toy. But this is very expensive comparatively and most of the middle class family will not afford it for their children.

    But this is very good for those family who have a big budget for their children and the most important part is that it is creative like assembling part by part.

    1. I understand this about the pricing but it is very well made compared to other action figures and is highly durable so I think that’s why they have set this price. To make something well these days the businesses have to buy the materials and pay labour costs.

      If you think about it out of that $29 for example a business would also have to payout rent and energy and also the packaging costs.

      When you break it down they are only making about 10% profit after expenses.

      Minecraft tots are very well made compared to other niches so I expect this is why the overall retail price is worked out to what it is. 

  4. I really think that this is a great review Darren! My son is 8 years old and I must say that he enjoy in collecting Minecraft toys. This is great product and now I know what will I buy him for the New Year. Just like you said, this toy is good for developing some other skills instead of just playing.

    1. hi Daniel 

      I’m really pleased you liked it, I thought I’d about the hobby side of the Toy so I researched the benefits of having a hobby when your a child so I simply had to share it!
