Dragon Ball is one of the most popular anime franchises of all time. Even if you don’t watch anime, you’ve probably heard of Dragon Ball. Akira Toriyama created it as a manga back in 1984, and its popularity exploded soon after its release.
Whether you’re looking for gifts for your kids who have recently gotten addicted to the Dragon Ball franchise or you’re purchasing for someone who has been a fan for many years, we have all of the best options below.
Super Saiyan 3 Goku Statue (Dragon Fist)
This fantastic combination of Goku punching out enemies and a golden dragon is sure to spice up any collector’s shelf. At just over eight inches tall, Bandai sculpted this epic figure from head to toe with energy. Appropriately named Dragon Fist Explosion, Goku demonstrates this move in one of the many Dragon Ball movies after transforming to his blonde alter-ego.
This adorable popcorn maker is perfect for any kid or adult who is a big fan of the Dragon Ball franchise. Instead of pursuing a long journey to collect the dragon balls, why not keep one conveniently located in the kitchen? It’s easy to assemble, and the top functions as a bowl, too, once the kernels have popped. It uses the hot-air method so the whole family can enjoy healthier snacks minus all of the extra oil. Plus, you can add whatever types of seasoning you want for something special.
This statue is perfect for collectors or kids who want someone a bit more friendly-looking than the majority of Dragon Ball’s characters in the heat of battle. Bandai’s figure has moveable joints and can be posed in a variety of ways. It comes with changeable parts, including two left hands, four right hands, and three facial expressions so that you can customize Goku for whatever situation he has to deal with on his way to collect the dragon balls.
Piccolo may begin as an enemy, but he quickly develops into an integral friend to Goku and the other characters on the show. He is a Namekian, one of the aliens who created the dragon balls in the first place, and he has crucial information about how they work. One of the most competent characters in the franchise, Piccolo brings a sense of sophistication to the admittedly simplistic show. This pin lets your family member or friend show how much they love Piccolo with style.
Created by S.H. Figuarts, this five-inch tall Bulma statue perfectly encapsulates this badass woman from the Dragon Ball franchise. Her sense of style is somewhat bizarre for people who don’t frequently watch anime, but this highly detailed statue shows how weapons-savvy Bulma is. The figurine is moveable and includes attachments like a dragon ball, a gun, a tracker, her signature goggles, and two facial expressions. Whatever Bulma is up to, she’s going about it with a smile and a wink.
King Piccolo never looked cooler than this S.H. Figuarts figurine. At just over seven inches tall, Piccolo comes with multiple accessories and is a completely articulated statue that can be positioned for any kind of display. The accessories include two left hands, four right hands, three facial expressions, a projectile egg, the one-star dragon ball, and a rice cooker for a domestic look. Whether Piccolo is calmly making a meal or in the midst of battle, you can pose this figure however you like.
We can all unanimously agree that Trunks may be the coolest Dragon Ball character in the series. He deserves a top 5 spot, at the very least. Regardless, this is a must-have for die-hard Trunks fans out there. And while not pose-able—like some other figures we’ve written about—it stands at close to a foot tall, with plenty of detail to make up for it. With the most unique Super Saiyan haircut in the game, Trunks is always a worthy addition to a Dragon Ball collection.
In our humble opinion, Master Roshi is one of the most underrated characters in the entire Dragon Ball franchise. If nothing else, his relaxed beachy grandfather outfit looks the most comfortable of anyone’s outfits. If you know someone who also appreciates his casual clothes, this cosplay includes everything you need to get your Roshi on. It comes with the top and pants, although you’ll have to provide your own rocking sunglasses and black flats. The bald cap is also not included.
With a few notable exceptions, almost everyone in Dragon Ball has ridiculously luxurious hair that frequently defies the laws of physics. While that undoubtedly looks cool on TV, it makes cosplaying as these memorable characters very tricky. Trying to make your natural hair stand on end for the long hours of a convention is a serious challenge. Luckily, there are plenty of wigs available that come pre-colored and styled. We’re guessing that entire bottles of hair spray went into their firm grip, but at least you don’t have to worry about damaging your own locks.
Though Trunks is frequently depicted as a child, we definitely don’t recommend giving a child this sword! It’s made of PVC and is still fairly sharp at the tip. It’s much lighter than a metal sword which means it’s great for long hours spent walking around a convention center in full cosplay, but you will need to be careful taking it out of the sheath. This sword also comes with Trunk’s distinctive orange sheath that he wears on his back.
If you know any kids who are big fans of the show and want to dress up for Halloween or costumed birthday parties, this high-end costume is perfect. This costume includes the bright blue jumpsuit, the white covering armor, white gloves, and white boots. It comes in a wide variety of sizes, so you can be sure that this cosplay will fit kids of all ages. Just warn them that the shoulder pads extend almost a foot on either side; they might have trouble squeezing through doorways.
This hilarious play on words makes this ice cube silicone tray featuring the silhouette of King Frieza all the more alluring. It’s bright pink and can easily be filled with water, juice, or anything you want to make delicious ice pops. Alternatively, you can use this versatile tray for baking fun cupcakes or other yummy treats. It’s perfect for making snacks for a themed birthday party or just for kids who want something to munch on while they watch their favorite episodes of Dragon Ball.
This mug set is excellent for people who enjoy small shots of espresso. Each little mug holds about five ounces of liquid and is easy to clean afterward.

This stainless steel water bottle is the perfect eco-friendly bottle to take for people who are constantly on the move. It can hold up to 500ml of liquid so that you can stay hydrated throughout the day.

This mouse pad is great for people who spend a lot of time on their computers, either playing games or working. The surface keeps the tension with the mouse, so you don’t have to worry about slipping off when you need to click around the screen rapidly and shut things down when it’s time for that important Zoom call. Plus, the non-skid underneath adheres the mouse pad to your desk so that everything stays in its place. It’s flexible enough to roll away when you want to move it or clear off your workspace, too.
Instead of spending years journeying through strange lands in search of the mysterious dragon balls that will grant the owner a wish when all seven are assembled, give the gift that any true fan would want and hand over this collector’s set of crystal dragon balls. You can choose the size, and they start at keychain-sized and go all the way up to 76mm diameter, almost as large as they are in the show. Each ball is inscribed with stars to measure which number it is, and they’re all made of hardy resin to avoid shattering.

It also comes with a polishing cloth so that your four-star dragon ball will always keep its beautiful shine.
Monopoly has a long-standing tradition of making themed editions in conjunction with some of the most popular franchises. They have made all different kinds of Monopoly, but the Dragon Ball version really stands out. Instead of buying properties, you build your team by purchasing fighters to stand on your side and help you defend yourself from the opposing forces. It gets a little harder to understand when you power up Goku by building houses on top of him, but Monopoly requires a certain suspension of disbelief anyway.
Everyone who owns a car has undoubtedly dealt with situations when they hop in their car, late for a meeting, or needing to get somewhere fast, and the steering wheel is too hot to touch.
