The first Despicable Me movie stole my heart from the first moment I saw its trailer. The trailer was funny, cute, sweet and adorable!
The first movie's main focus was on Gru, his ludicrous ambitions, adopting three orphans to help him fulfill said ludicrous ambitions, and acceptance. With the added giant yellow walking tictacs with goggled eyes, the animated film became even more adorable. So well-received it became that it even spawned a sequel. The popularity of minions increased even more when we got a standalone prequel Minions movie released this year!
One of my great friends celebrates her birthday today - and she absolutely loves minions - so much that she collects all available Minion (and Despicable Me) merch that she could buy. Anything Despicable Me or Minions will absolutely make her happy. She also might take it as a personal offense if anyone bad-mouths these twinkies within earshot.
There are a loooot of other people who absolutely love these yellow Minions, and here are some DIY ideas para tu and for the Minion lovers in your life. Perfect for party ideas, costumes, decor, and everyday fun!
