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.
photo above reminds me of the Perv Woody haha!

there is a hole in the left side which you can use to try the toy features first

A closer look at the box details
there are actually 3 minions to choose from… TIM, DAVE and STUART
skin is made of a soft rubber material
made in China of course! haha
the toy is held together by some pieces at the back and on the feet
you will need to do a twist action to release the toy
he is about 8.5 inches high
arms are attached to the rubber skin and can rotate freely — has elbow joints
eye lids will close only if the head is pulled backwards or if the user press the stomach and back simultaneously
the screws are mostly on the lower body. battery section is cover by the legs
would have been nice to have hair on top and not some embossed rubber
not much pose you can do

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.
lets us try that rolling eyes on the side feature
