Thank you to Build-A-Bear for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own as informed and instructed by our 8-year-old!
Seriously, as parents how overworked are we? Wouldn’t it be nice to have another set of (bright yellow) hands to help around the house with chores or world domination? We still can’t clone people to help, but we can take the kids to Build-A-Bear and Make-A-Minion. In fact, you and your kids can go now and make your own customizable Minions to support your journeys this summer and throughout the year!
During this Summer Season, Build-A-Bear has introduced three of the cutest, most lovable, and completely despicable beings to ever help geniuses wreak havoc and promote smiles! Stuart, Kevin, and Bob are on the big screen right now, and they can be in your child’s room as soon as you get to your nearest Build-A-Bear and customize your own.
You can see that our resident Director of Minion Minding has already begun wreaking havoc in our house. Apparently the path to world domination begins by taking over my recliner – I knew it was the seat of power! I don’t mind Bob so much, but those other two Minions are definitely plotting something.
Bob is the picture of timeless Minion fashion in his denim overalls, shiny black rubber boots, and nice clean glasses. With no hair to slow him down, he can get out in front of the pack – even if he isn’t exactly sure where to go!
Build-A-Bear’s new Minions collection includes:
- Minions Kevin, Stuart and Bob. Pricing starts at $25.
- Outfits and accessories sold separately, including era costume sets: Pirate, Gone Batty (Vampire) and Peace Brother Minion.
There are also three era costumes that match the ones featured in the film. When you make your Minion, you can choose from a selection of pre-recorded sounds based on each character’s own popular sayings, or even add your own personal message on a Build-A-Sound recordable chip. To truly make your Minion your own, make sure you participate in the Build-A-Bear signature heart ceremony!
And just like all of our plush friends from Build-A-Bear, your Minion comes home in its own little house with a convenient carry handle so your Minion maker can carry their own!
The Minion line is available online and in stores today! Get yours and send us a picture of the outfits you selected for your new friends. Watch out though, once you let them out of the box, they may try to steal your chair too.
