The Torch, My Blazin’ Dragon toy from FurReal Friends was a fun toy but he is a bit redundant in his noises and movements. I think that though he offers a lot of entertainment value, I have some concerns about the water tank and steam feature. Right off the bat, Torch My Blazin’ Dragon comes with a lot of instructions and steps to get him started. He also comes with warnings about using anything but distilled water and the filters inside the water tank. My immediate concern as a parent is if you don’t happen to have distilled water laying around, you either cannot allow your child to play with that feature of the toy or you have to fill it with an alternative like tap water. Tap water can be full of corrosive mineral that if used often, or left to sit in the water tank, could cause the toy to malfunction.
Additionally, when you press the badge on Torch’s chest, it is supposed to make him use his flame colored mist feature. I found that although it did cause him to use his steam feature, he doesn’t stay still long enough to effectively “brown” his reactive marshmallow.
Entertaining but slightly pricey
The FurReal Friends Torch dragon is very cute and has some really neat features including the flame colored mist. I like Torch but I found him to be a bit expensive and I am concerned about the distilled water and water tank becoming an issue down the line. He’s entertaining though and I do like that he is reactive to his many touch points
