A kids’ movie just isn’t produced any more without all sorts of tie-ins. For a movie that we really enjoyed (as we did this one), I think of a tie-in as something to help us remember the movie — a sort of souvenir. As part of my press junket goodie bag, I received a few neat tie-ins that I wanted to share.
There is not a little brush that comes out of the book, like in the movie, but it’s still a lot of fun. The little kitties are finger puppets like in the movie.
And even though it’s supposed to be the epitome of an awful bedtime story, in truth, kids often like the simple stories that we adults find to be drivel, and I was surprised to agree that it makes a fairly good bedtime story that my son enjoyed.
We are fairly new to the DS (having received one from Nintendo for review purposes of 100 Classics Books). My kids were excited, and we bought a few games for it. My kids are used to playing games on the ipod Touch, and at first, I was not at all impressed with the graphics and functions of the games we bought.
Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem is the newest, most recently designed and released game that they’ve played on it, and to me it’s a world of difference.
The levels are fun, and a little challenging without being frustrated. The game plot line goes along with the plot of the movie too.

Disclosure: Universal Studios paid my expenses to attend the press junket for Despicable Me, but my opinions are my own. I truly love this movie, and who wouldn’t love meeting Steve Carell and Julie Andrews?
