For those Despicable Me fans of that tall, bald ex-super villain Gru, he is now available in a 14-inch interactive talking toy that not only has 40 film quotes but responds to your voice.
Change the tone of your voice and he responds to that too with corresponding head, eye AND mouth movement.
Stepping straight out of Universal Pictures Despicable Me, this talking Gru is impeccably dressed in his trademark tailored, form-fitting charcoal-colored fabric jacket with a shining silver zipper.
Look closely and you will recognize the iconic Gru Minion Logo on the zipper pull.
Wrapped around his neck is his familiar knitted gray and black striped scarf accenting his zippered jacket, black pants and shiny black boots.
Interactive Toy Gru Despicable Me Quotes
The voice of Gru in Despicable Me is actor Steve Carell. He is the movie voice of Gru in Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem 3D, and upcoming “The Minions” movie set for release on July 10, 2015.

- “I’m joking”
- “No you didn’t”
- “Hello everybody”
- “How you doing?”

- “I have a lot of work to do”
- “Whoa whoa whoa whoa”
- “What was that?”
He also responds to your voice with an appropriate comeback when you have a conversation with him. Adding to his voice responses are coordinated eye, head and mouth movements so it looks like he’s taken on a life of his own.
