Saturday, we look forward to hearing from you on The DMS Wants to Know!

Today, we wanted to tell you about two of our favorite magical creatures!

This week's top of the heap: Best magical creatures : )


Fairday: Quick and easy for me, I love Toothless. I have always leaned towards horses- pegasus or unicorn, but when I watched How to Train Your Dragon, all of that changed. Toothless is absolutely my favorite, having all of the perfect magical attributes. Not to mention, he's adorable and looks just like my cat : ) ~ F







Lizzy: I think I would have to go with Hedwig, Harry Potter's owl. How cool is it that she brings the mail! Plus she's smart and loyal, and makes a great pet. Hedwig pretty much does her own thing, but always keeps a watchful eye on Harry, making sure that he gets his messages- perfect for me! ~ L

  2. I've always been partial to Pegasus, but then my dad had a Mobile gas station and we had images of flying red horses... that might have SOMEthing to do with it! :)

  4. I love both of these characters, I was so sad when Hedwig died. That was a bummer. Toothless is just adorable. I will be stopping by to check out the drawing contest that sounds like so much fun!

  5. I think all animals have a little magic in them so picking a favorite is difficult. I have always loved Jiminy Cricket.

  6. I love your magical creature picks.
    Toothless stole my heart forever and I find howls to be pretty cool and creepy at the same time.

  7. Awesome choices. Being partial to owls, I like Hedwig, but dragons are cool, too. I think my alltime favorite, though is Tumnus the fawn from The Chronicles of Narnia. He was just so nice and sweet, and basically decent.
