From the very moment that the boys watched the Minion movies they loved them and everything about them. They are funny little yellow characters which act silly and this is what they found so funny. I have lost count the amount of times that we have watched the films but they are still going strong in our house and I can't see a time in the near future when they will be getting old or boring.
When I was asked if we would like to review some Minion products I of course had to say yes, knowing how much the boys would love them. When a big box arrived I didn't have a clue what it was as I had forgotten that I had said we would like to review them. On opening the box I was gobsmacked with how much was in there and couldn't wait for the boys to get home to open them up and start playing.
The toys which we were sent to review were Fireman Lucy, Minion Kevin, Bob, Minion Dave, a teddy Minion and a Dancing Bob.
Dave and Kevin both had a launcher which was so easy to use and because they both had one the boys had a ball firing them at each other. They are such sturdy toys that have been well made so they can take a lot of playing with by a 3 and 5 year old.
Fireman Lucy was also a brilliant hit as you could change her outfits, and it was very simple to do for little hands. You could have her bun on, or you could change it to a head piece that you see some of the minions wearing in the films. As we have watched the films so much all the toys that we received the boys could relate to and were easy to play with.
Bob and the minion cuddly toy have also been played with many a times, even though they don't do anything they get added into the play with other toys. With Bob you can take his royal cloak off and one his arms, the cloak fits on the other Minions so it has been on all the other characters since we received them.
I have to say that the biggest hit had to be the dancing Bob! He interacts with the boys by dancing and talking when they talk to him which when you are 3 & 5, even for myself and my husband, this is brilliant. He then sings and dances around the room when has been great fun to play with from all by all the family. You start him off by pressing a button on his foot and from there he will dance and sing 3 different songs, which he does on the request of the boys as he will respond to their voices.
These toys are firmly in our toy box and are played with on a daily basis and as you can see from the picture above, they bring a lot of happiness to the boys!
