Despicable Me 2 Minion Mobile Review (Thinkway Toys)

What It Is

Kids can drive around the yellow minions from Despicable Me 2 with the Despicable Me 2 Minion Mobile. This remote-control vehicle features a light-up headlight, sounds, and more than 10 minion phrases. It comes with a Minion Tim driver figure that cannot be removed and a bopping back seat that seats one additional minion figure, sold separately. The remote control has two buttons and a joystick. One button activates original movie minion voices. The second button activates pre-programmed special actions. Press and hold the joystick up to move the vehicle forward, or press and hold the joystick down to turn the vehicle in reverse. There is also a button on the side of the Minion Mobile that activates more minion phrases.

Is It Fun?

This is an easy-to-use R/C vehicle that fans of the Despicable Me movies will love driving around. The lights, sounds, and movie phrases help bring the fun to life as kids recreate scenes from the movies or imagine all-new adventures for the minions.

Who It’s For

The Minion Mobile is for Despicable Me 2 fans ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Five AA batteries are required: three for the Minion Mobile and two for the remote control. The batteries for the Minion Mobile are included, but they power the in-store try-me features. Thinkway Toys recommends replacing them before you play for best results. No batteries are included for the remote.

For best results, aim the remote control's infrared transmitter at the infrared receiver on the front or back of the vehicle.
