#HGG Review: DreamWorks Dragons Double Pack: Gift of the Night Fury / Book of Dragons (Two-Disc DVD Pack + Online Video Game)

PhotobucketI am a huge fan of How To Train Your Dragon.  It's such a cute movie and I love the message that it sends.  Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I found out about the DreamWorks Dragons Double Pack: Gift of the Night Fury / Book of Dragons (Two-Disc DVD Pack + Online Video Game).

I watched "Gift of the Night Fury" first and was instantly sucked in to the story because it picks up where How To Train Your Dragon ended.  Together, Hiccup and Toothless discover an island filled with new dragons.  Next, I put in the "Book of Dragons" and learned about seven new dragons.  I really enjoyed the adventure these films provided and they were a hit with my nephew.   The Dragons Online Video Game was fabulous!  We had a blast creating our avatars and training our dragons.  My favorite part is the dragon battles.

Disc 1:
• DreamWorks Dragons: Gift of the Night Fury

PhotobucketI was lucky enough to score the items shown on the right and was so happy to be able to give them to my nephew.  When I showed up at his house with The Art of DreamWorks How To Train Your Dragon book, he lit up.  I think he loves books almost as much as I do.  The pictures are unbelievable!  I meant to get a picture of him in the viking helmet.  I'll have to add that later.  We enjoyed popcorn and smores and watched Damien play with his new belongings.  It made my day!

  3. How To Train Your Dragon is one of those animated movies that you just love! No matter how old you may be, I mean like 65+, you will probably enjoy it!

    My grandad came over to our home, he's really really old and doesn't usually like animated films and it just so happened that we were watching the movie, he just absolutely loved it!

    I guess I know what I'll be buying for someone this holiday!

  4. cute items to review! i haven't read the books or seen the movie but after reading your review i thinkthis would make a great family night movie!
