Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beware the Dragon’s eye! Very, very cool item. The dragon eye is quite detailed and mesmerizing. The motion detector is quite sensitive so locate it accordingly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks so real...like a monster book. Love it!! Better than expected. Almost like it was taken from the library of Harry Potter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better in Person Great on both concept and execution. Can't wait 'til Halloween to share and scare-- and don't have to! It's been taken over as a Role Play Game prop by the Dungeon Master, Mage, and Druid in my life. Got one for my nephew, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great On or Off A great-looking prop either way, it can be on for a startling surprise or off for an eerie, Harry Potteresque display. If you want the eye to stay open for display but without the green light or sound, the way my family prefers it, you can activate the motion sensor and turn off the power switch on the back before the eye closes again. It will be a beautiful, realistically-detailed blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Love It What a fabulous Dragon Eye. I love the surprise when people see it in action.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! What a gem! Super excited about this prop! It is surprisingly heavy and well made, with beautifully detailed scales, plus it has a stand on the back so that you can prop it up easily. The only cons I guess are the noises - they vary from a fuzzy short scream to a grating loud long godzilla roar and there is no volume control. That said, I am in love with this prop and have decided to do a whole theme with it now, switching from Haunted Library to Monster Menagerie, it is that fun. Oh, and as someone else suggested, if you turn this off when the eye is opened, you can "pause" it in the open position for display, which is a great tip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!! I love this book. It is so awesome. People unsuspectingly, pass, the eye opens and it give them a jolt and a chill. Such an awesome addition to my Halloween decorations. Personally, I would recommend that once you get that tiny screw out of the battery cover, leave it out, and if need be put a piece of tape over the cover. That tiny screw is a pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cool This Dragon book is so cool to look at the eye is almost like the website maybe a little brighter in person. Book is a little loud no volume control. overall nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good dragon item I just received this today. The quality of paint job and details to this is phenomenal. The sound quality is seriously lacking. The audio is very garbled and staticky. It sounds like it is a speaker playing too loudly, but in actuality it is not too loud at all. The eye on my book is sunken in much more than shown. The eye looks amazing when you turn it off while the eye is open. I don’t care for the green bright eye in person. It’s too bright to where you can’t make out that it is an eye very much. In their video online it looks really great. I kind of wish this was an entire dragon’s head rather than just a book. I’m still going to hide it outside in the hedges or something like a dragon is hiding :) I did not buy this full price. I used a reward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Book! This was a really cool piece for our Halloween party. Nice size and creepy without being gross. Kids loved that it looked at you. The only thing that made us really sad was that we loved the dragon roar, but there was no volume control option to turn the sound off or down and it was so loud that we had to cut the wire on the control board for the sound so that it’s eye just opened without being loud because otherwise no one could hear over it. Beautiful quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool but LOUD Very cool but overpriced, even on sale. The sound effects are ridiculously loud - will have to figure out how to disengage the speaker prior to putting it out for Halloween. If I can do that, it will make for a cool addition to my Halloween decor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deluxe Animated Dragon Book Love the dragon book! Love his eye! Just wish the dragon animation sound was longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome look I got this for my kid who loves Harry Potter books. It works well with that theme. Looks amazing and quality is great too. It’s motion activated and the eye opens up when you pass by. Also makes a loud dragon sound which can be turned off. I wish there was an option where the eye would open up and is lit up at the same time without sound. Unfortunately that’s not an option so I’ve kept it off with the eye open but it’s not fully green cause light is off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Look The Dragon book was bought as a gift. The eye feature was simply wonderful, but the roar was a bit loud. Would help if there was a knob to tone it down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love, but could use a volume button I really like this item, but as it is an indoor only decor item it could use a volume button. I am also pretty bummed that I paid full price and it is now on sale for 1/2 off but I'm happy I have it anyway. I highly recommend, especially at half price. You should get it!
Date published: 2020-11-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I love this except for the sound, so I took the back cover off and unhooked the speaker now it’s great! For anyone who wants to do this there are 2 grey wires that connect to the speaker and I just clipped the one on the left and now there is no sound just the eye that opens up. I tried to add a video but it will only let me do it through YouTube and I’m not sure how to do it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredibly Kool!! Just received the Dragon Book. Looks incredible! It is large and great quality. The scales look so good and the eye looks realistic. A bit pricey but such a great prop it outweighs cost. Has a stand in back to prop the book. Only downside - no volume control and it is LOUD! If it had volume control or ability to turn off sound I would've rated 5 stars.
Date published: 2020-09-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deluxe Animated Dragon Book This a great looking piece, however, I’m only giving 4 stars due to it lacking volume control. While I do love the animation of the eye opening and closing, the dragon roar is a bit on the loud side, which I would not want to constantly hear. I turn it off while eye still open and leave it displayed like that. Something to consider I suppose... although the constant noise may not be an issue for some. Still love it though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dragon book Looks good. Eye works good. But for this much money you should be able to set sensitivity and you should be able to shut sound off while eye activation still works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool feature, way too loud It is really loud.....too loud for an indoor setting.
Date published: 2020-11-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love at first sight... but quieter Love this book but it needs a volume control in a bad way... I tried to baffle it with packing pillows and tape on the "speaker" holes but the sound roars through the front.
Date published: 2020-11-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty cool! The facts of this book are that there is no volume control, as one other has stated. The volume is extremely loud, where you will want to turn it off after about to roars. The one reviewer had the best idea and that was to open up the back and cut either of the gray wires as they both control the volume. The eye still opens silently in I feel a creepier way without the obnoxious sound. Keep the speaker attached if you’re displaying this outdoors but inside it’s just too much. Otherwise it’s pretty cool !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Detail is excellent - sound quality poor Nice heavy 'book' detail is excellent and it looks very impressive. But the book doesn't actually open. The blinking eye should roll and blink a little slower for a more realistic effect. But my main issue here is the extremely poor speaker quality. It's very loud and it just sounds like noise. Nothing like the video portrays at all. Disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks good - sound is terrible Dragon book has lots of detail and it is heavy. The eye blinking mechanism is a little cheap looking, but doesn't really take away. What does take away is the sound. It's terrible! They used a really small cheap speaker and it just sounds like noise. It's also really, really loud. Sound quality of the 'dragon roaring' couldn't be worse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very cool looking dragon book but cheap sound The book looks really great In person but the sound is terrible and makes it seem cheaply made plus it doesn’t open up like a book it just sits propped up. It’s an awesome piece but way too over priced, I sent mine back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed Received our Animated Dragon Book, placed batteries in the book and… nothing. Doesn’t work and there is no ability to let Grandinroad no that my order was unsatisfactory. I did leave an email to a generic customer service email 2 weeks ago, but of course, no reply.

Does the book roar when it's motion-activated too?

Asked by: kip9
Thank you for your interest in our Deluxe Animated Dragon Book. This item does not have sound, the eye is motion-triggered to open suddenly and glow a cool, eerie green.
