Why you can trust us

TheToyZone is an independent publication with no ties with companies mentioned on the site. We don’t accept free products in exchange for glowing reviews. Instead, we report our own findings to help you make an informed decision.

From being essentially side characters in a 2010 movie to becoming the massive cultural phenomenon that they are today, Minions have come a long way in 13 years. There’s something about their joyful zest for life, their simple nature and their mischievous giggle that is endlessly endearing. And as these miniature yellow henchmen have essentially taken over the world (perhaps they were the real schemers all along), it’s no wonder that there is so much great merchandise out there to choose from!

Although the Minions are aimed at young children, their fans are not limited to this age group. While little kids like them because they are essentially naughty yellow children, older kids can get a good belly laugh from their ridiculous antics, and even adults are often captivated by their untroubled and carefree existence. So when you’re shopping for gifts for a Minion fan, make sure to choose something that will appeal to their age group. 

Luckily, you’ve got me. I spent a week curating the best gifts available right now for young Minions fans. Not to toot my own horn, I believe I have collected a fantastic assortment of Minions-themed gifts below to appeal to every type of fan – from fart blasters to board games to pajamas.

3. The Game of Life Game Minions Edition

While there is a Junior edition of The Game of Life, this is a way more Minion-tastic way to make the game kid-friendly. Naturally, the tokens are all Minions, the currency is all banana bucks and there’s a lot of madness and mischief built into it. It’s hilariously goofy while also simplified for a younger audience – first Minion to get 5 bunches of bananas wins!

Gameplay is the same as the original, but of course it features hilarious Minions-themed cards with equally hilarious illustrations.

5 Exploding Minions by Exploding Kittens
Recommended age: 7 years and above 

The aim of Exploding Minions is to be the last Minion standing after everyone else has exploded – but there are sneaky ways to diffuse or avoid the bomb cards. It’s super fun and quick to learn and play, so if you love Minions and board games, it’s a no-brainer!

With 20+ different noises, you can play this thing like a trombone to create your own customized sequence (melody if you will) of hilarious fart sounds. It may be childish, but that’s why it’s perfect for a child – and there’s no denying that farts are funny!

6 Minions Fart N Fire Toy Blaster
Recommended age: 4 years and above 

The cherry on top of this Fart ‘n Fire blaster is the bottle of water you can insert to create a misting effect. It really adds that touch of realism that mischievous Minions will love!

If you’re after a slightly more grown-up gift, this Panoramic jigsaw puzzle is a fantastic choice.

This Funko Pop of Kyle, the vicious but ultimately lovable dog from Despicable Me 3, is the perfect way to do so. This figure replicates Kyle’s unlikely combination of cute and grotesque only Funko Pop knows how, and it’s the perfect addition to any Minion collection!

10 Funko POP! Kyle Action Figure

12. LEGO BricksHeadz Minions 40421

LEGOs make awesome gifts for kids of all ages, but the more elaborate sets can be pretty pricey. But these BrickHeadz buildable Minion figures are actually super affordable – especially considering it includes Bob, Kevin and Belle Bottom as well. And it goes without saying that the completed figures are utterly adorable in their square-headed, pixelated form!

12 LEGO BricksHeadz Minions 40421

Frequently Asked Questions About Minions

Why are Minions so popular?

It’s not that hard to figure out why kids love Minions. They are bright and colorful, they look ridiculous (but expressive!) and their humor revolves around farts, mischief-making and nonsense words. But why has their popularity endured as much as it has, among little kids, older kids, and your aunt on Facebook alike? 

The Minions’ popularity is wrapped up in their absurd antics – but not just because they are funny to watch. It’s also because their childlike wonder and joy in the simple things in life is something we all crave. The comedy the Minions provide – one without words but full of slapstick and anarchic joy – is one that transcends boundaries. It’s something people of all ages and nations can understand, which is why it makes us feel more together to watch a Minion falling down in a hundred different ways!

The childlike Minions are also endearing because they wear their emotions on their sleeves. In a media landscape full of knowing irony, their simple childlike emotiveness is a breath of fresh air. On the other hand, even when the Minions make a mistake, it never weighs on them too heavily. Their attitude to life is one of carefree enjoyment, which is something we all wish for. They represent the opposite of everything we want to escape, so it’s no wonder we love them so much.

What is Minionese?

Minionese is the nonsense language the Minions speak. And although it definitely doesn’t correspond to any one language, it’s not quite as nonsensical as you might think. In fact, it’s actually made up of words from a range of real languages including French, English, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Spanish and German. This adds to the Minions’ universal appeal, though interestingly, they are dubbed differently in different countries, despite essentially speaking gibberish. However, it’s important that the Minions’ intonation patterns sound familiar to moviegoers of different languages, so that we often can understand what’s happening despite not understanding any individual words. 

So… What Minion Gift Should I Get?

Hmm, maybe some bananas? Just kidding, you should get the gift from the list above that you think your little Minion fan will love most! For example, if they love doing crafts, this paper craft Otto puzzle is sure to go down a treat, but if board games are more their jam, we’ve got lots of options in that vein too. You could also go for something practical, which doesn’t have to mean boring, as these awesome Minions Crocs prove.

If you ended up picking a Minions gift that wasn’t on our list, pop us a message to let us know what it was. Unless it was bananas, in which case you can keep that to yourself!
