Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Action Figure Review

The Minion Dave talking action figure is based on the adorable character in the movie Despicable Me 2 from Universal Studios. The hilarious character also appeared in the original Despicable Me movie, and is very popular with pretty much anybody who has seen either of the movies. Which one is he? Um...BANANA!
Dave is about 8 inches tall, soft, interactive, and (of course) battery operated. (Oh, and funny- did I mention funny?) Really though, when my older 2 kiddos and I saw these @ Walmart the other day, we probably stood there for a good 15 minutes playing with them. WANT!

Here's the Lowdown:

* Press or touch interactive parts for specific actions and responses (the top of his chest pocket, the back of his tongue, etc.)
* Original movie voice is accurate, clear, and *ahem* easy to understand. (As easy as a minion can be anyway).
* Includes 55 Minion sayings taken directly from the movie- no fake crud here!
* Requires two AA batteries (included- which is good b/c I don't want to figure out how to put more in!)
* Recommended for ages 4 and up, but I'd give this to a toddler...I mean, I'd supervise of course, but I can't see anything falling off and choking the kid.
What Makes the Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure such a cool toy?
One of the three talking minions, which are available in the Despicable Me 2 toy lineup, Minion Dave has a "banana mode" that your little ones will absolutely love. (We did!) You might even laugh to when you press on Dave's tongue, and he responds by saying "Banana!" and then greets you with a disgusting fart when you move his head or push his pocket. Definitely not high-brow entertainment, but just as cute as hearing "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!" thirteen times in a row from our 8 yr old.
Dave has a "super banana mode" when you press his tongue twice. Yes, as expected, another even louder fart is delivered here. There are also dozens of different sayings and noises which your child will remember from the 3-D movies starring Dave, and it is really nice to have a toy deliver a movie voice accurately.
Also, as a parent, it is nice when you hear a different, unique saying every time. Dave does not just recycle a few sayings over and over. The audio recordings are really high quality, and though the toy is durable, it is made with a soft touch rubber skin that is kind of cool in a flexi-squishy way.
Dave is flexible when you move him around, and his eyes move left and right, open and close, so your child feels like Dave is a playmate, and not just a toy. Not just for children, this would make a great addition to anyone with an officially licensed movie memorabilia collection.
If your child is a big fan of the Despicable Me movies, then the Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure is a great toy selection at a mid-level price.
