It's almost impossible to avoid a certain bunch of little yellow critters this month and, although we have yet to see the film, the girls are definitely minion-crazy!  The film follows the miniion tribe through history as they journey from serving the ferocious T-Rex and the Egyptian Pharoahs to attempted domination by Napoleon's armies.  Throughout history, through tragedy and triumph, three courageous minions stand out: Kevin, Bob and Stuart.  Their courageous exploits are the focus of the new movie.  Oh and one slightly ominous-looking one called Steve!!

I think the mask might suit Tatiana better!

And she loved the inflatable banana that came with it!

To celebrate the film, we have minion emblazoned malt loaf, sweets and more, and a host of other excitements.  many have come to our door, so here's a quick rundown of all things minion:

but she does love colouring the minions in!
