Though many people can either take or leave the films of Disney Pixar, there are some that manage to bridge the gap between animation lover and animation sceptic. One such film is Despicable Me, as well as its successor titles, which all have some wonderful humour and intriguing storylines to offer both the young, older, and old among us all. For the children that enjoyed the films there are a number of different Despicable Me toys available that will keep them entertained for hours on end. The pick of the best of these wickedly good toys can be found below.
Despicable Me Fart Blaster
There's no getting around the fact that farts are funny, at least to children of a certain age anyhow. This Despicable Me Fart Blaster is therefore the ideal choice of gift for younger children that wish to indulge in the childish fart-humour they enjoy in a distinctly Despicable Me fashion.
The Fart Blaster's design looks much like your typical megaphone though a little more colourful and comical-looking with a bell that's shaped much like that of a trumpet. It even has a power gauge on it to tell you the force of the "farts" that are being fired. This fart gun has two different play modes that involve a variety of different fart sounds as well as accompanying lights.
This is a great toy for children as there are no small parts to choke on, simply a single-piece fart gun that has the ability to provide your child (or the childish adult) with hours of hilarious (if a little crude) fun.
You'll find the Despicable Me Fart Blaster at Toys R Us.
Hot Despicable Me Gru's Pet Dog "Kyle" Plush Doll Toy Figure
From the incredibly silly to the relatively sensible now, in the form of this Plush Doll figure in the shape of Gru's pet dog. Anyone that has seen the film will recognise this figure straight away. This being a Plush Doll figure it is a much narrower source of entertainment than the relatively broad fun of the Fart Blaster, though this figure definitely has its place in the collection of a child that enjoys this kind of thing.
This plush doll figure is more of a collector's item than a toy, featuring the comically large teeth , hilariously small legs, and funny-looking googly eyes of Gru's pet dog. This plush doll figure can be found at www.amazon.co.uk
Hasbro Despicable Me 2 Operation Board Game
Here's a toy that's much more interactive than most of the other examples in this list.The Despicable Me 2 Operation Board game is after all an official Hasbro board game that integrates the fun of Despicable Me 2 into its rules and regulations. In this version, the person on the operating table is Stuart! He needs fixing and it's up to you to do the honours.
There are a number of unusual objects to be removed from Stuart if he is to survive: unicorn fluff is just one example, as well as other tasks like fixing his broken head and other body parts. This is a wonderful game for children as they get to operate on a Minion, and a million times better for younger ones than any kind of operation game online.
Toys R Us stock this Despicable Me Board Game where it’s received a lot of happy customer reviews.
Despicable Me 2 Plush Backpack
Perhaps the only thing more exciting than operating on a Minion is carrying one around with you all day every day. This can be made possible with this Despicable Me 2 Plush Backpack. Though perhaps not as entertaining as some of the other toys on this page, this back pack will allow your child to express their love for all things Minion whilst storing any items they may need to take with them on a day out or simply to school on a daily basis!
Fireox Despicable Me 2 Evil One Eyed Purple Minion Plush Toy
This plush toy is a perfect companion to the Gru's Pet Dog plush toy mentioned above. With no moving parts to worry about, this toy is yet another example of an item for a collector rather than something that can be played with on a daily basis in an interactive fashion.
This one-eyed purple minion makes a nice change to the usual two-eyed yellow Minions that are so common among Despicable Me toys these day. Amazon stocks this toy at a great price - just visit the following link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fireox-Despicable-Me-Purple-Minion/dp/B00IQ8K20Q/
