There’s just something so lovable about the Minions. I’m not sure if it’s the bright yellow color, their child like mischief or their babbling-type talk. But they’re absolutely some of the cutest characters and you know exactly why they took off with kids and adults alike. So whenever there is a new Minion or Despicable Me movie coming to theaters, you know that it’s going to be adorable and something the whole family can love.
Minions: The Rise of Gru hits theaters this week, and we have some fantastic new toys and gifts that your kids are going to love (if they can get them away from you).
From the very first Despicable Me movie there wasn’t anything funnier than the Fart Gun, and now… you can have your very own. Check out the Fart ‘n Fire toy gun you can get right now. Not only does it have the techie appearance like it came right out of the lab, but it can extend to change the size of the gun. It also comes with 20 different sound effects and a mister you can attach so it can leave a “fog” just like in the movie.
This has been making the rounds in our home – the only warning we have is to make sure that no one is on a conference call when you pull the trigger! It is for ages 4 and up, but let’s be real… the kids will never get this one!
Do you absolutely love the Minion babble? Then you need to grab the Babble Otto Large Interactive Toy, he comes with a golden coin that helps activate him (and lights him up!). He also comes with over 20 different phrases and sounds to keep kids entertained! He’s not super cuddly but he is absolutely adorable and will react if you motion in his direction. He is the perfect buddy to take to see the new movie when it hits theaters!
Minions: The Rise of Gru is hitting theaters this weekend! Be sure you’re ready with your snacks and favorite Minions to check it out!
