Like most of the country we love Minions in our household. My eldest fell in love with them when she went to see Despicable me at the cinema many years ago, and my toddler fell in love with them last year and became a bit obsessed with them wanting to watch Despicable me 2 every single day for about six months. I must admit myself and my partner are also a bit partial to the cute little yellow creatures too, and I am sure baby Jacob will fall in love with them when he is a bit older. So when I was recently asked if we would like to review some Minion goodies from Asda I knew this would score me some major mummy brownie points with my children.
It took me age's to decide what to order as there is a whole Minion section on the Asda website full of everything from clothing and toys to bedding and beach towels. In the end I enlisted the help of my oldest daughter Chloe who decided that she would really love a Minion beanbag, night light and alarm clock for her bedroom. I then decided to get Sophia a Mischievous Minion t-shirt as she really is mischievous and we actually call her are little minion, as she sounds like a Minion when she babbles away. I also got a Minion cup and a pair of socks for Chloe.
As soon as the products arrived Sophia's little face lit when she discovered everything had Minions on them, she swiftly grabbed the beanbag and claimed it as her own and loves sitting on it to watch TV. I was really impressed with the beanbag as it only costs £20 which is a lot cheaper then similar ones that I have seen. She also loves her pink Mischievous Minion t-shirt priced at £5, which she wants to wear all of the time as I don't normally buy her character clothing. The t-shirt is great quality and has washed well and suits my little Minion perfectly.
The night light is a hit with Chloe as it changes colour and is fairly small and perfect for on a bedside table. It also has no wires as it is battery operated (batteries included) and it is made of soft plastic so it won't break if it is dropped, making it perfect for a child's room and is a bargain at £6. The Alarm clock was something that Chloe really needed as she is a nightmare to wake up in the mornings for school so hopefully this will come in very useful once she starts back in September. This was priced at £8.
Chloe was happy with her socks as she said they are really comfortable and these were amazing value at just £2 , I am tempted to buy myself a pair as they are so cute. My favourite item is this Minion cup which was £4, it is made of plastic and has a lid on and a stripy straw which has a stopper on it preventing it from coming out the cup making it perfect for little ones. I love the design of it and of course we have been enjoying lots of banana milkshakes in it which I am sure the Minions would approve of.
We loved all the products we were sent and I know Chloe already has her eyes on some more items from the range. They would make a great summer treat or dare I say a great Christmas present for those of us who have already started Christmas shopping (guilty as charged). So if you have a little Minion fan on your hands then why not check out the range of products available at Asda and let them know that they are #OneInAMinion and you might just make them go banana's.
