Tom Babbler the Minion from Despicable Me 2
Despicable Me 2 is currently on circuit here in South Africa and while the kids are perhaps a little too young to attempt going to see this at the cinema, we did manage to dust off the first movie from the Mede8er.
This was the first time Arnan has seen Despicable Me and boy, has this suddenly turned into his favourite movie – dethroning Cars, Finding nemo, Up, Flushed away, Planet 51, Winnie the Pooh, Wall-E and Bee movie for a change.
I use the word “dethroned” loosely, since we’ve watched Cars over 300 times over the last year. Never the less, Despicable Me is his current favourite, and that’s fine by us – something else for the parents to get used to.
Much to Arnan’s delight was of-course the McDonalds Happy Meal – Despicable Me 2 movie tie-in. He could get his very own minion. Arnan calls it “Man!”. So every time he points at the Mede8er and says “Man!” he wants to see this movie.
While not the healthiest food, I may need to go back to McDonalds just for another minion or two. They are quite adorable.
Speaking of adorable, the internet is a buzz with the banana song. See link below. It is kinda like an earworm. It really gets stuck in your head.
