Top 10 Novelty and Unusual Minions Gift Ideas

For those of you that have not seen any of the “Despicable Me” films I suggest you watch at least one. Both my little one and I loved it! But unlike most films the hero and main character are not the things most people remember, because the characters that are much more notable are the Minions! These very funny small and yellow cylinder-shaped creatures that have one or two eyes are the true stars of the film and thus get their very own merchandise…

Sadly these are only available in kids shoe sizes, which is a real shame because the moment I saw them I was screaming, “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!” But unless I buy some smaller feet it is never going to happen.

  1. I have the Minions operation board game, it is a right laugh much like the original game.

  2. Please delete this post if my little boy sees it he will want all of them, he loves anything to do with the Despicable me films.

  3. Hey! First of all thanks for the “follow”. I will now scroll up and “click” on something. 🙂 God bless and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. You are most welcome. okay now I DO sound creepy….haha…….

    Have a good day and don’t stop what you are doing.

  5. Hey Russell, the pet costume is just funny. I started loving them when i translated their language. It’s so funny that they have their own language.

    I have an item which I created as well, a hand stitched minion greeting card.
    Check it out at my etsy shop:

    It’s great to have the slippers at home.

    Once again, you had done well. It’s just so nice to check out your blog the FIRST thing in the morning. It makes my day a great one. Gosh! I sound like a stalker now.

  6. Ahhh!!! I am a despicable me addict! I got given one of the cinema posters of Dave (one of the minions) and it takes prime place on my living room wall! Such a cool blog post!

  7. I’ve yet to see the second one, maybe we could do a Despicable mini marathon one night – I’ve forgotten the first one.
    Love all of these, so cute!

  8. *LOL* Thanks once again Robert! Loved the comment about number 4, that did make me smile. And I just want to say thank you for taking the time to read my tat, and stick with it, no matter how strange it gets.

  9. Russell! You’ve done it again my friend!

    All of your hard work for today’s presentation has inspired me to do one of my 10 item countdowns.

    #10: Wow! Who would *not* want some of this groovy ‘Duck Tape’? Fun to look at and useful as well!

    #9: These are inspired! I would put these up in the loo so I would never feel alone! (HA)

    #8: I don’t use a backpack, but if I did, it would definitely be this one!

    #7: If I didn’t live across the pond from you, I’d have these in minute!

    #6: Oh Man! Kid’s size only! What a rip! I want some!

    #5: Ha ha ha! I laughed when I saw this update on the classic “Operation” game! That game used to drive me nuts; I could never hold the darn tweezers well enough to get the piece out without causing the buzzer to go off!

    #4: “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!!” Okay… this is something I am willing to pay the exchange rate and International Shipping Rates on! I would be the envy of everyone who saw me wearing it. Really, really a cool shirt!

    #3: Heh… I’d get a pair of the one-eyed and a pair of the two-eyed, because I want to have a pair of slippers with a one-eyed slipper and a two-eyed one. And I’d have a spare pair to give to someone!

    #2: Well, I don’t have a dog, but if I did! Yow!

    #1: These are the greatest and certainly deserve the top slot today! I looked for them on Amazon.ca and they are really expensive, $52.00 (CDN). More than I can spare at the moment. But… If I had the cash, they’d be mine, mine, MINE! (Insert manically evil laugh here)

    Great job Russell! And thanks for taking the time and effort needed to create the lists you publish!

  10. Dear Santa Claus, I’ve been a good girl this year ( so far) may I have the following Minion slippers, cushions, Operation, t shirt er and cuddly toy, CUDDLY TOY!

  11. Mr. T and I love the minions!!! And, we aren’t little!! I was so ready to buy those shoes until I saw your note that they only come in kids sizes – bummer!! I do love the backpack though – I think it has to go on my Christmas list! 😉
