Fire-Breathing Puppets

A human fighting a dragon would likely be toast, but dragon-on-dragon battles are an entirely different animal. By sticking your hands in the 42-inch-long monster, you can make the two fanged heads bicker or just be buddies (one child can manage it alone, or pals can share puppetry duties). With the dragons' slightly goofy expressions, they can play mean without being menacing to younger tykes. Chill in the air? Drape the duo around your shoulders for a striking shawl certain to enchant Eragon fanatics.
