Build A Minion

(Disclosure: My family received free products but all thoughts are my own.)

Minions have arrived at Build-A-Bear Workshop! In anticipation of the upcoming Minions movie, my family and I headed to our local Build-A-Bear workshop to make our own little yellow friends. We love the Minions here at my home so the boys were so excited.

The exclusive, customizable collection features three of our favorite Minions characters- Kevin, Stuart and Bob. The Minions character collection, available now online and in stores, lets kids customize their Minion with a variety of signature Minions clothing items and sounds.

We discovered that our local workshop had a unique computer that let the boys add personality to their stuffed friends. The boys put the Minion’s heart on the screen and chose the personality that they wanted to add. Choices ranged from playful to brave to cute.

The next step was to add sound to their Minion. They had the option to add a variety of sounds, including the voice of the Minion or a sound they created themselves.

 The next step was to stuff the Minions with the fluff. The boys got to decide how squishy their little friends would be.

After their Minions were created they got to pick outfits, bathe them (in pretend water) and dress them. The last step was to name them.

Jake chose to stick with the real names of the Minions but Lucas enjoyed pushing every single button to create his own names for his two.

The boys loved hugging their new Minions. At the very end, each stuffed friend was given their own little box that they could be taken home in.

If you have a Minions fan, this will be something fun that you can do with them on the next rainy day. They can even bring their Minion with to watch the movie when it comes out in July!
