Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Review (Thinkway Toys)

What It Is

Fans of the Despicable Me movies will know just how hilarious the minions are, and they're just as hilarious as toys. Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave is a nine-inch talking action figure that says 55 minion sayings in Dave's original movie voice. Press Dave's pocket to hear Dave talk. Kids can also press the back of Dave's tongue to hear Dave say, "Banana." This puts the toy in Banana Mode, which means that when you press Dave's pocket or move the toy's head, you'll hear a farting sound. The toy also has moving eyes and poseable arms.

Is It Fun?

For kids, or anyone with a 5-year-old's sense of humor, this is going to be a fun collectible and an engaging toy. The sound effects and phrases bring the character to life, allowing fans of the movies to recreate scenes from the movies and imagine all-new minion adventures.

Who It’s For

Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Two AA batteries are included, but these power the in-store try-me features. Thinkway Toys recommends replacing them before you play for best results.

You may have to experiment to find the right spot on the back of Dave's tongue to get him to enter Banana Mode. But it's easy for even the youngest kid to get the hang of quickly.

After a period of inactivity, Minion Dave will automatically turn off. Press Dave's pocket to reactivate the toy.
