Dragon plushie characteristics
Since they are mythological creatures, dragon plushies come in all shapes and sizes. There are many depictions of dragons around the world. From Europe to China and Australia, local folklore tells of giant reptilian monsters living in the water, soaring through the skies, or slumbering in caves. This diversity makes stuffed animal dragons extremely versatile.
While classic European-style dragons are often green, and Asian dragons red, dragon plushies are made in almost every color imaginable. There are blue dragons with red wings, brown dragons with black claws, rainbow-colored dragons with white horns, and many more. Dragon plushies can have large or small wings, long tails, or no tail at all, massive horns, or small stubs – anything is possible. Since they are lizards, dragon plushies resemble dinosaur plushies.
Famous Dragons (available as stuffed animals)
Dragon plushies grew in popularity during the original run of Game of Thrones, which featured three dragons: Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal. Throughout the years, viewers witnessed how the dragons grew from hatchlings resting on their ‘mother’ Daenerys Targaryen’s shoulder, into giant monsters, soaring through the sky. Each of the three dragons became available as a plushie.
Other famous dragons who were turned into cuddly stuffed animals are the playful Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon (2010), videogame star Spyro, ‘pocket monsters’ Dragonite and Charizard from Pokémon (1997-), and Walt Disney’s two most famous dragons, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty (1959) and Elliott from Pete’s Dragon (1977).
