Hapy Meal Toys 2017 ~ Despicable Me 3!

I just love the Despicable Me bunch! Gru is cool, the girls are all cute, + the minions are awesome! That is why I enjoy watching their films over again and playing with my old Happy Meal minion toys. I was also lucky to complete the set of Minions Happy Meal toys from a few years ago. It is also the reason why I am excited about the new Despicable Me 3 film + the Happy Meal toys!

Just before I went back to school, we were able to get a complete set of the new Happy Meal Despicable Me 3 toys. The set includes the following toys:

  1. Agnes Rockin’ Unicorn {Agnes rocks back + forth if you move her unicorn ride}
  2. Despicable Duo {a cool car that has a surprise inside, a photo of Gru + Dru}
  3. Minion Antics {this minion’s arm rotates when you push the button at its back}
  4. Crab Bite Minion {his hat flies off when you push the red button on his backpack}
  5. Banana Launcher MinionĀ {the purple anchor launches when you push the purple end of the Banana Launcher}
  6. Playful Minion {his tongue sticks out when you push at the “G” icon on his over-alls
  7. Groovin’ Minion {press it to the floor to see its arms alternately move up + down}
  8. Rocket Launcher Minion {push his wheels forward to see him zoom backwards}
  9. Pumping Iron Minion {move the lever on its back from left to write to see him pump his iron up + down}
  10. Minion Hydrocycle Surprise {the back of his ride pops + reveal a minion inside when the front wheel bumps into something}

I am happy to add these toys to my minion collections.Ā They are all my favorites but I think the Despicable Duo is my most favorite because it has Gru and his twin brother, Dru. The minions in prison uniform are also cool because they remind me of Scofield + Lincoln from mum’s favorite tv series. ^_^

Are you also collecting the Despicable Me 3 Happy Meal toys? Which one is your favorite? šŸ™‚

off the shelf: doc hudson from cars

I absolutely love Cars! Mum + dad has been buying me diecast CarsĀ ever since I was a little tot in hopes of completing each and every character from the film and its sequel. So far, I already have a handful of them, including Lightning McQueen, his mate, Mater, Sarge, Fillmore, Luigi + Guido, Red, Sheriff, Finn McMissile, Holly Shiftwell, + Italian racer Francesco Bernoulli.

For last Christmas, my parents got me another Cars diecast to add to my collection ~ Doc Hudson.

Here’s a short background about Doc Hudson from Wikipedia:

Doc Hudson {voiced by Paul Newman in his last non-documentary film role} is Radiator Springs’ local physician. His license plate read 51HHMD, which is a reference to his year and track number (51), model {Hudson Hornet} and profession {medical doctor}. A racer-turned-mechanic, the character has Newman’s blue eyes.

Did you know that Doc Hudson is based on theĀ real-life Fabulous Hudson Hornet in NASCAR competition? It was introduced in 1951 and manufactured until 1954.
