Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure Review

Minion Dave Talking FigureMinion Dave is one of the talking minions which are available in the Despicable Me 2 range of toys. He has plenty to say, with dozens of different sayings and noises which you’ll immediately recognise if you know the movies. It’s great to have a toy deliver such a good recording of the real movie voice.

Dave is about 8 inches tall. He does different actions and says different things depending where you activate or touch him.

One of the best things about this Minion Dave talking figure is his “banana mode”. You press his tongue, he responds by saying “Banana!” and then the next time you move his head or push his pocket to get a response from him, he makes a disgusting fart noise. Kids just love this – and a lot of adults will enjoy it too!

There’s also “super banana mode” where you press his tongue twice and he delivers an even louder fart noise. And these are just a couple of his interactive responses – there are more.

For older kids and adults, it is nice that you get a different saying a lot of the time when he talks. Dave doesn’t just recycle the same few phrases over and over. He has 55 of them so he’s not too predictable.

Dave seems pretty durable but he’s not too hard. His “skin” is soft to the touch and rubbery. So he is definitely tactile and cuddleable. He’s flexible with various moving parts including the eyes which can open and close or move to left and right.

The only downside is the price which is higher than it might be simply because the talking Minion Dave can be quite hard to find. But if he fits your budget, he’s a great character to have around the house!
