From Hasbro Canada

Well the movie Despicable Me 2 is officially out in theaters.     And when we realized that a 2nd movie has been made, my husband asked me if we ever saw the first one.  Nope, not yet.    So now we have a new titled to watch with the kids.   Well, make that two movies in a way because if we watch the first one we will more than likely watch the second as well.

Watch this trailer of Despicable Me 2.


Hasbro as teamed up with Universal Studios in order to offer some interesting games based on the movie.   I have received two of the product from Hasbro to present to my readers!

My Thoughts

Even though I am not familiar with the minions, I must admit that I find these two game totally adorable.    I like the creativity of the creators behind these games geared toward kids.   I think you have to be very imaginative and full of ideas to adapt well beloved games to a specific movie.   I have seen other games based on movies in the past and to be honest Hasbro as a way to impress me every time.   

Take the Operation game for example – Though it is somewhat similar to the original version when it comes on how to play the game, it’s different at the same time because it contains fun anatomy parts for a minion.  Also you will find included in the package four minion medics to help you with the surgery.

Same goes with the Monopoly game.   Gru is planning to take over the game of Monopoly.   The goal of the came is to collect Banana Bucks as fast as you can and own your favorite Despicable Me properties.    Kids will learn to count money, how to pay for things, and take chances to win.    Also included in this fun game is a special minion that you have to spin in order to move.  You will also find ice cream sundaes and cupcakes tokens for this special version of a classic game.

And the best part for kids (not so much for parents who will have to pay!) is that you can collect up to 50 minions which are sold separately.   Each games contains some of the minions to collect but you will have to purchase the other ones if your child wants to have other ones.

Both the Despicable Me 2 Monopoly and Despicable Me 2 Operation games are available at your favourite toy store, even
