All kids love the Minions! Who would have thought that the lovable roguish yellow blobs would be such a hit. Making their own noises outside of Despicable Me 2, they have already invaded Britain starring in their own movie this summer.
So of course, the Minion toys from the movie, that also launched in the summer, are going down a storm with kids this Christmas. Fluxling #2 was thrilled with the animatronic Tumbling Stuart toy he received for his fifth birthday, which is great fun falling forwards and backwards, then somehow always managing to make it back on his feet. The toy Stuart also talks and laughs in his original movie voice and interacts with you with the brand new ‘Talkback Features’ technology.
Thinkaway Toys are behind the Minion toy range, and cleverly there are toys for all price points from the larger Tumbling Stuart at £59 and Banana Eating Minion Kevin at £39, featured alongside lower priced figures. The ‘Spinning’ Minions’ for example come complete with flashing lights, original voices and music. There are also the Wind-Up Action Minions and 13 Collectible Mini Action Figures that make perfect stocking fillers.
