Sure Despicable Me and its sequel may have been about Gru and his misadventures, but I think in our hearts (and sure our kids hearts too), it was really the Minions who stole the show.
So appropriately, the funny army of little yellow fellas are getting their own big screen animated spin-off set for theaters on July 10th aptly named Minions. There will be no shortage of goodies to keep all your Minions needs in check starting May 1st.
With licenses out and about among numerous partners, you can be sure whatever you think of will be on store shelves to bring a smile to your face as only the Minions can. Everything from action figures, interactive plush dolls, board games, Play Doh, sneakers, hats, safety helmets, towels, construction sets, headphones and so much more.
The invasion began early at last month’s Toy Fair. I had the opportunity to take a tour of the Universal Showroom featuring the awesome tie-ins for both Minions and Jurassic World. Check out what there is to look forward to from Hasbro, Mega Bloks, Funko, Thinkway Toys and many many more!
