Join Us In Search Of New Dragons! #StreamTeam @Netflix #Partner



    This past week, I finally had the chance to sit down and watch Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed watching it along with my nine year-old son.  The two main characters, Hiccup and Toothless risk leaving the safety of their home, on the island of Berk, to search for new dragons.

    My boys had a ball using their imaginations to create their own adventures where they set out to find mystical dragons.  They were so excited about possibly finding dragons with some of the abilities of the dragons on the show including sending shock waves, cannon balls and fire blasts.  Who knew that modern dragons had such amazing abilities?


    In Dragons: Race to the Edge, Hiccup finds the magical Dragon Eye artifact aboard and abandoned ship.  This discovery leads him to learn that there is much more to find outside the Berk limits and he allows his curiosity to get the best of him.  Hiccup’s own words, “this changes everything,” shows us that he is determined to find out as much as he can.

    As you can see, we tapped into our own inner Dragon Rider and used some amazing props to explore the world around us.  It was so much fun to use the ancient map to track our adventures and to dress us like Hiccup and Toothless in our own living room.  All it took was having a little imagination and a whole lot of fun to enjoy our own quest in search of dragons in New York City.

    Make sure you check out the all-new Netflix original series Dragons: Race to the Edge so you could embark on your own dragon ride with your family.  Invite your kids to harness their inner Dragon Rider and explore the world around them!

Let’s Discuss:  What are some of the ways that you engage in pretend play and have exciting journeys with your children?

    My kids are a bit older now but, I remember watching kids movies with them and having a blast reliving my childhood through their eyes. I love the way it creates opportunities for pretend play, fun, and bonding… I can relate. 🙂

  3. The kids my daughter babysit love this show. They always want to watch it when they come over.

  4. What cute dragon names! Oh goodness… when Frozen came out.. we did a lot of pretend play. My 3 year old insisted I call her Anna or Elsa while out shopping. She was in full character!

  5. I saw the movie, and it sure is a great movie. Such a great message of embracing who we are.

  6. My friends and I used to play all kinds of imaginary games when their children were younger-it was fun!! I think the cutest is when my friend’s then 3 year old dressed my two dogs up and we had a marriage ceremony (one was male and the other female and they had to be married to live together according to said girl!)

  7. I really liked the movies so the show sounds great! Learning about the characters and the new dragons will be fun.

  8. My daughter absolutely LOVES this show. It is a cute one!

  9. I am a big fan of this movie and the TV series. I have never seen it on Netflix. I signed up but haven’t had time to watch much of it

  10. I love Netflix! They have the best shows on TV now.

  11. Yay! I love that little dragon in How to Train Your Dragon. I cannot wait to see this on Netflix.

  12. We are big fans of Hiccup and his friends. We sure will watch this!

  13. We are huge lovers of the Dragons movies and series! We still need to watch Race to the Edge, though!

  14. What a fun game you have created. My kids love the series.

  15. I’m not too up on the kid shows out there. Seems like a series the kids would really love.

  16. I love all the shows I’ve found on Netflix. It looks like my son would love this show.

  17. How to train your dragon and the Race to the Edge movies are two great films that children would enjoy for a long long time. My kids are older now, but when they were younger, our pretend play was always superheroes, villains and the hapless princess.

  18. We watch Netflix every day and love all the educational shows for toddlers. My youngest two son’s share a profile filled with Thomas, Chuggington, scholastic books, LeapFrog, etc. My older two each have their own profiles which I hope to encourage them in some documentaries for Homeschooling.

  19. My son actually loves this show and we’ve been watching the episodes. He’s a huge How to Train Your Dragon fan.

  20. This is much fun. I used to remember me and my niece had fun with the film as well.
