As an adult who has no children, it's pretty safe to say that I tend to not pay attention to recent development in children's entertainment. This is also out of sanity-preservation, as that despite the fact that I just kicked off my third decade of life on this planet, I have been cursed with the mother of all baby faces, so I avoid stuff that is liable to lead people to believe that I just entered puberty. And since I don't like being mistaken for a minor as much as most people think I should, I avoid the kid stuff to the point of being virtually oblivious to it.
I'm not kidding--the last big thing I heard of that was considered Primo Kiddo Stuff was the Harry Potter series, and I was in still in high school when the first book dropped. Oh, and Finding Nemo. Kids still like Finding Nemo, right?
...Yeah, I have no clue. However, Rufus likes to stay in the kiddie-entertainment loop and has zero problem sharing the latest things with me (even if it does occasionally involve dragging me, kicking and screaming, to the thing in question.) Her latest kid-oriented thing to show me? Universal's Despicable Me.
If you haven't seen it, I would definitely recommend it. The plot is cute, there's a lot of humor in there that would sail over kids' heads but adults would enjoy, but most importantly, there are minions. Adorable, sweet, loyal little minions, and I am not kidding when I say that they are the best. Thing. About the movie. PERIOD.
And I want one. Which I know is totally impossible, seeing as they are fictional animated characters and all, but I still think it would be awesome to have an anthropomorphic Kinder egg creature or two of my own to do my bidding. But since that's not possible, I guess that means I'll have to settle for something else. Like, maybe a minion hat.
And guess what?
And what could be better than one kind of minion hat? A variety of minion hats, obviously.
Although, this post would be rather remiss if it didn't have one of the most notable hats in it represented, now wouldn't it? So it's probably a good thing I found Edith's hat, isn't it?
They even got a blonde kid to wear the darned thing, too. If I were that kid, I would totally make this my Halloween costume, just because it's that simple.
And while it's not a hat, it's only fair that I show a little Agnes love:
Yeah, it's not so FLUFFEH, but you have to admit that this unicorn looks a lot like the one won at the midway game. And as an added bonus, I don't think you'll need a blaster gun to win it, either.
And since it's Friday, I'm going to post the best thing ever: minion cake pops.
Because as I've said before, there are few things in this world that can't be improved upon by putting them on a stick. Especially if they're cake and minion-shaped.
And on that note, that's it for this week. See you Monday!
