Fearsome Dragon Friend
Tame enough to ride on your shoulder, but fierce enough to guard your bedroom, Bloco's Combat Dragon is every child's ideal roommate. Made with Bloco's durable high-density foam and unique connectors, the Combat Dragon comes with complete instructions and a handful of accessories, and is fully compatible with all Bloco sets.



About Bloco Construction Sets:
It's not just me; research concludes that children learn a lot by designing and building things. Many skills are rooted in the act of construction: creation, examination, and problem solving are but a few. Construction will encourage your child to separate complicated tasks into manageable bites. The nature of building complex models encourages children to think about multiple steps of assembly at the same time, particularly when working with gears or fussy pieces.

Construction Should Be a Required Curriculum
Based on my own engineering background/bias, I believe that construction is one of the most valuable educational processes available, and that both learning to build and learning by what has been built should be a part of every family's curriculum.

Creation-Based Construction
It may seem as though some children have zero interest in building and creating. Possibly it is because most construction kits emphasize vehicles, machines, and other man-made innovations. If your child’s inclinations are more creation-based, if he would rather build a realistic animal or a life-like fish, consider Bloco with its uniquely-shaped, high-density foam and specialized plastic connectors that both link and rotate pieces.

Flat Models and Extraordinary 3-D Animals
This one-of-a-kind construction kit allows your child to build simple, flat models and extraordinary, three-dimensional animals. Each set comes with detailed illustrated designs, and sets can be combined to allow the creation of even more interesting creatures.

Challenging and Educational
Colorful and appealing when completed, these are not simple slap-together kits. Our experience is that younger children, unless highly motivated, are initially going to find some of the more complex models "impossible." Instead of becoming irritated, rejoice; it means that by the time your child completes the projects he will have learned something and you will have gotten your money’s worth.

Combine Sets to Create Even More
Many Bloco sets make an assortment of creatures, from sharks to eagles to zebras, each one worthy of display. All sets are fully compatible. Suitable for ages four to twelve.

    Reviews from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team:

    BLOCO’S COMBAT DRAGON! IS HE FIERCE OR IS HE FRIENDLY?
    "...This is the first Bloco toy we've bought, and we can't wait to buy some more! I was impressed with how durable it is--it's not like any other foam toy we've used. The foam is very heavy duty, the connectors are plastic and work very well to hold it together so that you can play with it without it falling apart. The Bloco Dragon is listed as the hardest of the sets to build, and it did take my little guy awhile, but he's very good at following directions and built it on his own. He did need encouragement from me, but I knew that he'd be so proud when he finished it all by himself. And he was!..."
