Don’t look now, but those fun little Minions are back! And they are bringing all of their scheming, hilarious characters back to the big screen in Despicable Me 3, in theaters everywhere, June 30th.
Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date.
In celebration of this fun release, Hasbro has a few new games out for families to enjoy. To kick off our Despicable Me 3 week with our nine year old granddaughter we tried out BOP IT! and Operation. It’s been a blast. We have spent the last two evenings re-watching the previous movies and playing games. Tonight we head to our local advance screening for part three. I’m not sure who is more excited, the girls, or myself. I had forgotten how much I enjoy these characters.
BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME
Ages 8 + Retail Price: $14.99
Get ready to pull it, twist it, and bop it with the BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game! Just like the classic BOP IT! game, players must quickly perform the silly actions called out by Agnes in order to beat the game! Pull down on Minion Stuart’s legs, twist his eyeglass lens, and bop the top of his head in this fun and fast-paced memory game. The BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game features the voice of the adorable Agnes and sounds of Minion Stuart. Requires 2 ‘AAA’ batteries, demo batteries included.
OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME
Ages 6+ Retail Price: $19.99
After a long vacation, Dave needs some help! In the OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game, help the MINIONS fix Dave’s wacky ailments by using tweezers to pick silly “Funatomy” pieces out of the game tray. Keep a steady hand and move cautiously, because the second you bump Dave, the buzzer will sound! The player who removes the most “Funatomy” pieces wins the game! The OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game includes a game board, tweezers, and “Funatomy” pieces. Two “AA” batteries required, not included.
Both of these games are fun to play, and have added a lot of laughs to our evenings. Becca loves to hear me lose at Operation, but she has so far not beaten my high score at BOP IT!
Both of these games are available at most major toy retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.
