It’s official the Minions have taken over. Their cute minion talk, glowing sunshiny disposition and lovable characteristics make me smile every time we see them. As a family we have enjoyed their singing as well as their first foray on film. Even though my kids haven’t seen Despicable Me 2 they are as enamored with the minions as the rest of the country seems to be.
Hasbro sent us two of their newest themed board games to check out and to say the kids are excited would be understatement. Since the games have arrived the kids have brought them out on a regular basis, especially Monopoly.
Despicable Me 2 Monopoly is a fun twist on the original.
It’s the classic fast-dealing property trading game of Monopoly, now with multitudes of minions! Gru is back with another evil plan and it’s up to you to collect Banana Bucks and own all of your favorite properties before he succeeds. Spin the Minion Spinner to move your minion around the board and wheel and deal to win the most mischievous Monopoly game ever!
This Despicable Me 2 version of Monopoly is mischievous property-trading fun! Buy and sell properties! Collect Banana Bucks! Includes exclusive minions! 50 minions to collect! (Each sold separately).
Despicable Me 2 Operation “it’s just so fluffy I’m gonna die!”
It’s the classic skill game of Operation, now with multitudes of minions! Stuart’s having a bad day and it’s up to you to fix him. Operate on Stuart to remove the unicorn fluff or fix his nutty noggin and his toxic tongue! Collect all of Stuart’s Funatomy parts to win and earn extra points with Minion Medics, but don’t set off the buzzer! Are your hands steady enough to win the Despicable Me 2 version of Operation?

Pick up these and other Hasbro Despicable me games and toys at your favourite online toy store or in stores. I know it seems early, but I am already planning for Christmas. Don’t tell the kids, but there will be minions afoot.
