Whether you’re into collectibles, action figures, or board games there are a ton of D&D toys out there to collect between game sessions.

1. My Little Pony Cuties Marks & Dragons

D&D toys

The fact that I don’t already own this set is a surprise even to myself. Combining D&D and the friendship magic of ponies into one very cute and detail-minded package was a stroke of silly collectible toy genius. The result is a product that is clever and funny while also being undeniably Dungeons and Dragons. Aside from the ponies, this collectible set comes with a useable DM screen and more dice for your eternally growing collection, so there’s a little form and a little function and all magic.

2. Beholder Pop Vinyl

Even if you don’t love Pop Vinyls, there’s always one or two you have to admit are pretty neat. There have been a few sets of these ranging from absolutely adorable, to this almost kind of scary Beholder. Should they be scary? In an encounter, maybe. But as collectible plastic figures to line your computer desk or RPG bookshelf, they’re pretty darn fun.

3. D&D Adventure Begins Board Game

D&D toys

A little different from the D&D toys, Adventure Begins is an accessible and kid-friendly introduction to D&D in the form of a board game. This is a cooperative fantasy adventure game for up to four players at least ten years old. You can customize your hero, use magic, fight monsters, and travel Neverwinter with nothing that doesn’t come in the game box. Whether you’re a fan of D&D already or want to sneakily convince some kids that it’s cool, Adventure Begins is easy, contained, and fun.

2. Die-Cast Metal Figures

D&D toys

Something about these sets are undeniably nostalgic. The adventurer and monster figures look like they stepped out of a classic D&D book and remind me of the milk crates full of random little plastic figures from my childhood. Only now the paint is a little nicer and I wouldn’t drop them in the random figure bin with oh-so-many Power Rangers. Sure to be a blast from the past, this set would look great wherever your RPGs are played. And, if you’re ever in need of an emergency mini, they’ll fit right in.

5. Holga’s (Nerf) Greataxe

D&D toys

No matter how old you are, Nerf weapons are awesome. Nerf guns and blasters? Perfection, no notes. But sometimes you want to live your best Barbarian life and get something a little more close quarters in the mix. For that, a Nerf replica of Holga’s greataxe from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is about to become your new favorite foam weapon.

Do you already own any of these or any other D&D toys? What is your favorite that you’ve collected so far? Will you be adding any of my picks today to your collection in the near future? Let us know in the comments!

Happy adventuring!
