Kevin is packaged in a large box with two holes in it for testing him out before you bring him home. He is secured in the package with a few rubber bands and plastic clips but I had him out of the package and playing in just a few minutes. He doesn’t need any batteries to start as he is packaged with demo batteries already installed.
The Playtime Experience
Kevin has 35 minion sayings and reactions. He has a soft, rubberized upper body and articulating arms. When you turn his head left, right, front or back he reacts with a number of his sayings and noises. He has a banana in one of his articulating arms which you can move to put into his mouth. When you do, he pretends to eat the banana and says “banana” in his very minion way.
Things I Liked
I like that there is so much variety in the sayings and reactions with Minion Kevin which keeps play time fresh and engaging.
Things I Didn't Like
The soft body is rather strange feeling, being that it is rubberized, I sort of expect it to attract lint, dirt and other unwanted items. However, it will also be easy enough to clean.
This Despicable Me friend is recommended for players at least 4 years of age.
While Minions Kevin Banana Eating Action Figure is a simple toy, I think he does exactly what any true Minion lover would want. He has multiple interaction points and sayings so he keeps play time engaging and really adds to his play value. He was also inexpensive so it is a great gift for any Minion fan.
