Talking Mel Plush Review (Thinkway Toys)

Talking Mel Plush
What It Is

In the new movie Despicable Me 3, the Minions want Gru to be a villain again. When he won't agree, new Minion Mel leads a rebellion. Follow Mel just like the rest of the Minions with the Despicable Me 3 Talking Mel plush toy. This 5.5-inch soft character plays Minion sounds and phrases when you squeeze him. The packaging doesn't say how many phrases there are supposed to be, but we counted about nine.

Looking just like the character from the new movie, Mel wears the signature Minion outfit of denim overalls, black gloves, black shoes, and goggle. But he's got a facial expression that shows he's unimpressed with Gru.

Is It Fun?
This toy will be a fun way to bring the new character to life. The sounds and phrases offer a fun way for kids to recreate favorite movie scenes or make up their own Minion adventures. Kids will also like the softness of this Minion toy, which means they'll want to give Mel lots of hugs, and when they do, they'll hear him talk. They'll probably want to squeeze this soft Minion over and over and over again. Or just take it with them for play on the go.
Who It’s For
The Despicable Me 3 Talking Mel is for ages 4 and up. This soft little Minion toy will be fun for kids who are fans of the new Despicable Me 3 movie. It's a fun way to bring the new character to life for lots of imaginative play.
