Enter the Despicable Me 3 and Thinkway Toys Giveaway! {EXPIRED}

8:11 PM

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures.

Ever since my 3-year-old saw his first movie featuring the Minions, he calls the lovable, yellow creatures "banana!" He adores them, as does our whole family. With the new Despicable Me 3 movie coming to theaters, we'll have a lot to look forward to this summer!

The film, which hits theaters on June 30th, looks amazing from this preview:

Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.

After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis.  But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

Doesn't it look fantastic?

We also had the chance to try out a super cute new toy. The Mini Music-Mates feature cute Minion characters that talk, sing, and dance along to music with the press of a button.

These small toys are great for taking along wherever kids go. I think that they are a must-have for Minion collectors! The assortment includes Dave, Stuart, Tim, Carl and Mel, Gru, and Agnes.


Buy more than one and connect them together. Then, they will dance along in unison! Each character comes with a fun removable backdrop, too. (Snag these and the Jail Time versions of each where Thinkway Toys are sold.) These cute toys are priced at $19.99.
