AND OUR FAVORITE

Goddess and Handsome were certain they didn't want to watch but 10 minutes in they both made their way over to sit in the living room with me during my review workout. I even had to move the mat for them to sit.

  • The Terrible Twos
  • In Dragons We Trust
  • Alvin and The Outcasts
  • How to Pick Your Dragon

  • We Are Family Part 1

  •  

Dragons Riders of Berk is a great show for teaching tolerance, differences and community. There are all kinds of personalities here and even some characters who have limbs missing, those Viking times I gather. The community couldn't function unless they all worked together as a unit.

Great time with my kids today. Can't wait to see more Dragons!

I think your kids will love this DVD Set and before you enter this review, check out this Kids Guide to Vikings:

  • Vikings at Sea – Not all Vikings travel by dragon like they do in Berk! Vikings built great, big boats called longships for war. Each one could carry at least 60 men! Even though they were so large, Viking longships were designed to be speedy and could move through the water much faster than other boats.
  • Viking Clothes – Vikings from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden dress a lot like Vikings from Berk, but with more layers. To stay warm in the cold winters, Vikings wore clothes made of wool, animal skin, or linen and shoes made of thick leather or goatskin. In battle, they wore helmets made of leather or iron.
  • Viking Homes – Vikings really knew how to make the most of their surroundings! Houses were built of stone, mud, and blocks of turf. They made thatched roofs from woven sticks covered in mud. Vikings probably wouldn’t let dragons sleep in their houses the way Toothless does!
  • Viking Children – The Vikings in Berk get to go to the Dragon Academy to learn about how to become better dragon trainers. Instead of going to school, real Viking kids stayed home to help their parents work. Even without school and books, children could learn about history through songs and stories passed down from the older members of the town.
  • Viking Food – The dragons in Berk eat fish, veggies, and bread given to them by their riders. Vikings ate similar foods, but also enjoyed meat from farm animals or wild animals that they would hunt. They drank out of wooden cups or drinking horns. Sometimes they had feasts for festivals that would last over a week!
