The Universal Pictures blockbuster Despicable Me, as well as its sequel Despicable Me 2, have created a huge demand for licensed products. As with any other children’s movie with lovable characters there are many opportunities to create toys and games that children of all ages love.
Here are some top selling Despicable Me toys with great reviews on Amazon. Let’s start with a Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure, available on Amazon. This toy is able to speak 55 Minion sayings & special effects.

Next up is another talking toy – the Gru talking action figure. He has 25 sayings/laughs in the original voice. He’s also moveable. Also good for ages 4 and up.
Here’s a whole set of smaller Despicable Me figures, in case you can’t decide on which large figure your child would want:
Next is a highly-rated board game that almost everyone would recognize. Everyone loves to play Operation, so of course they come up with a Despicable Me Operation game.
