Curious DragonBonz

Fall 2007 Toys
Ages: 4 - 7 yrs.
Manufacturer: Curious Toys/Pictures
Price: $34.00

Curious DragonBonz is a set of fantastically colored and shaped, plastic "body" parts that can be used (and re-used) to build dragons or any number of bizarre creatures the builder can conjure. Children loved copying the designs on the package, flying them around the house (and hanging them from the doorways), telling their life stories, fighting them as knights, then taking them apart and putting together their own unique designs to do it all over again. And when they weren't looking I made my own dragons, too! Pieces have thin rod or wedge ends that can snap into openings on other pieces, providing a fair amount of flexibility in construction. The pieces are sturdy and have held up to a fair amount of abuse - this is a set to keep.
