The twins are minion mad. We have all sorts of minion related items around the house . We have ornaments money boxes even 3D jigsaw puzzles. Asked if we would like to try out Tom and Mel inflatable minions I jumped at the chance. How could I not add them to our collection.
Bladez toyz do a range of remote control inflatables. They have Thomas The Tank Engine, Star Wars and even fluffy the unicorn from Despicable Me 3. They come in varying sizes and degree of difficulty in terms of the controls. The minions we have are super easy to use both Tom and Mel have a one button control. You can go forwards or spin and that’s all you need when your 3. The boys have absolutely loved driving them round the house.
The inflatable minion is really easy to set up. You inflate the minion like a beach ball you can either do it with your own puff or a pump. On the underside of the minion there is an on off button with a mute option as well in case you don’t want sound. Yes the do make minion noises and talk.
Once switched on you hold the remote button down for a few seconds and away you go. You will need 6 AA batteries which are not included so make sure you pick some up when you buy your inflatable minion otherwise you may have a grumpy child on your hands.
The inflatable minions are well made and tough. We have been driving them round for days and we have even had them out on the patio. The boys love chasing each other with them. They act scared but really they love it.
The wheels are quite small but sturdy and they work great on flat surface like laminate and the patio. It has struggled sometimes on our carpet though but we have quite a thick pile carpet, it does move but occasionally gets stuck. They also balance as well so if they tip over they bounce back. I love this as it will help prevent any scrapes and punctures.
You can get your hands on your very own Tom or Mel for around £25 from The Entertainer Toy Store. They are really fun and I can’t wait to get some more characters because the boys have loved them. Think it has to be a Star Wars one next time for Jack so he can get involved too.
