Lots of Fun We Had a Around the Theme of Despicable Me

Since Despicable Me 2 started playing in the theatres July 3rd, it has been about minions and Gru in our home. We enjoy playing Operation and Monopoly Hasbro board games with the Despicable Me theme. We went to Home Depot and my children enjoyed making the cute Lucy's car, while wearing the minion hard hat, a badge/pin and apron.

They also got a pencil and a worksheet to continue the fun at home. Once we came home they painted the car blue and really enjoy playing with it.
My children were excited to win this Dancing Dave, which has become their new friend. See him in action on this video :)  
We also had the pleasure of being invited by Home Depot and Universal Studios to watch Despicable Me 2 in 3D. We really enjoyed watching the exciting, funny storyline. If you haven't already watched Despicable Me 1 and 2 then I totally recommend it, it is a family friendly entertainer.
The Operation Silly Skill Game inspired by Despicable Me 2 is fun for both children and adults to play. We had lots of fun nervously trying to get the "Funatomy" parts from Stuart before the other person does. It was exciting to try and take the polluted parts out without the buzzer sounding. 
I like the four soft minion medics that come with the game, which we can win if we get the 2 favourite funatomy part of each minion medic. We used 2AA batteries to operate the buzzer. This game can be played by our self or with others. I think it is fun to play with at least one other person, so we can laugh when the buzzer goes off and try to get the most parts :)
This Despicable Me 2 Monopoly Mission is a simple version of Monopoly that little ones will be able to follow and enjoy. The mission is to collect as many Banana Bucks, and the person that wins the most wins the game and becomes Gru's favourite minion. 
We setup the game arena and fixed Nom Nom Tom minion with the banana on top of the spinner pod to play. Although the spinning idea is fun, instead of a topper I wish it was a stable spinner; the spinner pod sometimes moves the cardboard game arena when the little ones try to spin. 
To play we spin the pod and move our cute minion token to the number of spaces. This game helps little ones count, take turns, read, and do addition and subtraction. The game finishes when a player runs out of money and can't pay fees or rent to the bank.
