How many of you have kids who are excited to see the brand new Despicable Me 3 movie?! I know my guys are eager! It hits theaters June 30th!
Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, the animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud.
Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date. The film will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.
While we await the release of this fun summer movie, the kids and I are enjoying two awesome Despicable Me 3 games from Hasbro: BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME and OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME!
OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME
Ages 6+ Retail Price: $19.99
After a long vacation, Dave needs some help! In the OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game, help the MINIONS fix Dave’s wacky ailments by using tweezers to pick silly “Funatomy” pieces out of the game tray. Keep a steady hand and move cautiously, because the second you bump Dave, the buzzer will sound! The player who removes the most “Funatomy” pieces wins the game! The OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game includes a game board, tweezers, and “Funatomy” pieces. Two “AA” batteries required, not included.
BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME

Get ready to pull it, twist it, and bop it with the BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game! Just like the classic BOP IT! game, players must quickly perform the silly actions called out by Agnes in order to beat the game! Pull down on Minion Stuart’s legs, twist his eyeglass lens, and bop the top of his head in this fun and fast-paced memory game. The BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game features the voice of the adorable Agnes and sounds of Minion Stuart. Requires 2 ‘AAA’ batteries, demo batteries included.
My kids were so thrilled to have these new games to play with! We usually play games together every Friday night, so they were excited to have 2 new games to try out this past weekend. Although the kids enjoyed both games, they all agreed that BOP IT! was their favorite. It’s small enough they can even take it along in the car for road trips!
