Talking Minion Dave Review | ThinkWay Toys

It is the latest craze in the Philippines! These so-called MINIONS of the movie Despicable Me 2 is actually a big hit all over Facebook. Fans both young and old are into collecting them. Well who would not like them Minions, they are funny and cute! Of course, we ourselves are victims of their cuteness. Our review for today will be of Talking Minion Dave made by ThinkWay Toys.  I think this one falls under their ThinkToy line. So the first time we heard about this talking figure, we immediately bought one.  The price on Toys R Us is 2599 pesos, but I heard the lowest is 2300 php.

So what do you think?  A toy initially meant for children is now being collected by a large number of teens and adults. If this toy was given to a baby, I guess it will survive since generally the composition and structure of the materials are solid enough to withstand being thrown or bounced at the wall. However, the 2500 php price tag will make you think twice about giving this toy to your baby, unless that was the initial plan all along.

    1. @jhe – it costs between 2300 to 2600 pesos. You might find some stores in Greenhills selling this or some private sellers in FB or Sulit. I got mine from Toys R Us, but stocks are hard to find nowadays since it (minion) was very popular and easily sold.
