We were sent some minion toys for Tilly to review. The Stuart Vehicle Remote Control and Some Despicable Me 3 Splashers. So here is what we thought of them.
The Minion Stuart Remote Control Vehicle
This is almost a remote control car, but it is so simple for even the youngest of kids to use. The remote is chunky and only has a forward and backward button so it's easy to control. You do need a few batteries, 3x AA for the actual vehicle and 3 x AAA for the remote. The Vehicle only goes backward and forwards, but it does go at quite a speed on a flat surface. It won't go on the carpet, but that's to be expected really. The vehicle has a huge back wheel with the Minion Stuart sitting at the front, it is made from tough materials and seems to be hard wearing for even the most heavy handed kids, and it survived a few drops from Tilly. Tilly is 7 now and she found this really fun to use. You do need two different size screwdrivers to open each of the battery compartments on the remote and the vehicle, so I had to have both sizes on hand. There is a simple and easy to use on/off switch on each of the parts of the toy, its easy enough for a child to use.
The remote control vehicle is suitable for children from 3+, because it really is easy enough for them to use. You can own your own remote control Minion vehicle from Selfridges for £24.99.
Despicable Me 3 Splashers
I don't care what age the child is, they all want to play with water! Even my 25-year-old daughter had fun with these Splasher squirty toys. The set comes with three different minions, Bob, Kevin, and Stuart. I didn't know who they were but my 25-year old told me their names - like I said you're never too old to love a minion. In the summer, these make a great alternative to water pistols and are easy to use. They are also tough and safe for the little kids to play with too. You don't need to use them with water and they make great little toys to play minion games with too.
The Splasher have a fair bit of detail on them and have the whole cheeky look about them, and could make bath time a lot less stress full. What Minion toys do your Kids love?
