Looking for a bit of fun in your summer camping adventures? You might want to get the Vango Starwalker Dragon kids sleeping bag.
Only the other week we reviewed the Easy Camp Image Kids Sleeping Bags, which are bright and fun for summer camping.
Well, Vango has taken it a little step further.
They sent us over their Vango Starwalker Kids Dragon Sleeping Bag for us to have a closer look.
Starwalker Dragon Kids Sleeping Bag
We’ve reviewed the Vango Starwalker sleeping bags before. These are great sleeping bags that you can walk in, or just have your arms free if you need to.
Well, someone has clearly been having fun in the Vango Design Department and has taken the Vango Starwalker concept and turned into in a dragon outfit.
The Vango Starwalker Dragon is green (of course), with some wings printed on the back. OK, well, that’s not the only feature of course.
The sleeping bag is mummy shaped, and the hood has been turned into the dragon’s head, complete with teeth around the hood, which makes it looks like your kid has been eaten alive! 😐
But they didn’t stop there. On the back of the sleeping bag is a detachable tail!
Of course, as a Vango Starwalker sleeping bag, the bottom section of the bag can be unzipped, making it easier to walk around in.
So, as it is a Starwalker sleeping bag, your little dragon can run around the tent terrorising everyone. Or even, go off to the toilet block to clean all its teeth 😉
However, once the bottom part of the bag is detached, it can be a bit fiddly to re-attach to the sleeping bag.
The bag that the sleeping bag comes in has shoulder straps, so your little dragon can carry their own sleeping bag into the tent.
Vango Starwalker Specs
Technically this sleeping bag is a 2-season bag, meaning it is designed for typical camping weather from late Spring to early Autumn. However, we have found that the Vango Starwalkers are more like a 2+ season, as their insulation fill appears to perform a little bit better.
Certainly, the Vango Starwalker Dragon feels quite thick for a 2 season sleeping bag.
Using the Dragon Sleeping Bag
We’ve used this sleeping bag on several camps this year already.
In practice, it works just like any other sleeping bag, but with a bit more fun.
The tail is simply attached with velcro so it is easy to remove before bed, enabling your child to lay on their back.
Here’s a fun photo that Shell snapped earlier this year, where we were all piled onto the Outwell Heated Carpet. It shows little dragons like the heat too 😉
We love this sleeping bag. It’s both practical and incredibly fun.
It gets the GOWTK Thumbs Up award.

- Re-attaching the bottom section can be a bit fiddly. Summer use only.
