They’re squishy, charming, have an optimistic outlook on life and say the cutest things ever! Who else could we be talking about besides Dr Gru’s little yellow Minions? The animated characters first took the world by storm in the Despicable Me movie series, before earning their own franchise because they were that loved.
They’re adored so much so that recently during her trip to Korea, our editorial director, Kristen, spotted these familiar faces on a couple of hair styling tools. So naturally, we had to dig up as much info as possible, and here’s all that we discovered – including exactly how you can purchase these products. It’ll make a great payday treat for yourself, or that Minion fanatic you know!
