Cool Crayola Color Alive Minions Edition Coloring Book

Just in time for the 2015 release of the latest Minions movie, comes the edition animated coloring book. It is available for pre-order until its release on July 15, 2015.

Color Alive, brings the characters your child colors, with special crayons, to life in 3D and 4D with the use of the included Color Alive App.

This creative coloring collection includes 16 pages of Minion characters and 7 different color Crayola crayons. One of the 7 crayons is a special color, “Banana Banana” yellow that adds unique effects when scanned by the App.

The coloring pages in the book are of good quality paper and will not tear at the crayon stroke of any overzealous artists!

How Minions Color Alive Works

  1. The magic happens when you download the Color Alive app to your iPad, iPhone or Android device. When your child uses the included “special” crayons to color the pictures, the character images take on a 3D and 4D effects appearing to rise out of the device surface — wearing the shades, lines and designs your child has artfully applied.
  2. The app also allows the characters to move and turn and each has a special trick or feature unique to them.
  3. When you hook up your device to Bluetooth compatible speakers, they also make interesting sounds.
  4. The 7 Color Alive crayons included with this Minions Edition will also work with the other Color Alive books for Skylanders, Barbie, Mythical Creatures, Enchanted Forest and Monster High.

Minions 2015Where to Download the App

The app for this edition is available for download from Windows Store, the Apple app store and Google Play.

It is compatible with iOS Android Windows smartphones, tablets and iPod touch devices only. Devices are not included.

For Glitch-Free Operation Keep Reading

The other editions of Color Alive have not been without their hiccups, leaving a few little artists frustrated along with their parents or gift givers. With the release of the Minions Edition coloring book, we hope any bugs have been worked out. That said, here is a workaround for any “crashing” apps…

Where many initially make a mistake is having your child color a page first and then scanning it into the app when just the opposite should be done — this thanks to the folks at Crayola’s customer service department.

  1. When your child chooses a color for the first time and it is scanned, it becomes automatically saved. This saved color can be located on the app’s main page called “My Saved Stuff”.
  2. The second step in the process is to scan an UNCOLORED page. The page will then have two options — 4D and “Sparkly” crayon. In this edition, the “Sparkly” crayon is the Banana Banana yellow.
  3. Choosing the 4D option lets your child name and save the Minion.
  4. Clicking the “Sparkly” crayon adds a sparkle effect to your child’s artwork.
  5. Saved characters can be found in the “My Saved Stuff” location.

Ordering Information

  1. This is officially licensed Universal Studios Minions merchandise recommended for ages 4 and older.
  2. The Color Alive Minions coloring book has been made outside the US and is imported. The Crayola crayons have been made in the USA.
  3. The app is free to download and will only work with compatible devices as noted above.

Funny Despicable Me Talking Laughing Stuart Minion

Fans of the short one-eyed Stuart Minion from Despicable Me will love this talking, laughing little Minion with the warm brown eye and neatly combed hair.

This adorable little action figure brings to life the playful nature of one of the most innocent in the Minion clan.

Familiarly outfitted in the iconic denim looking blue overalls, this Stuart action figure is sure to keep you in stitches with his fits of giggles when activating his LOL (laugh out loud) mode.

This is just one of the features that make the 8-inch Minion a cute toy for Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 fans and merchandise collectors.

Minion Stuart is one of the shorter Minions and made his debut in Despicable Me when asked by Gru to keep Agnes, Edith and Margo away from him. Stuart gets into some serious mischief with the girls by throwing toilet paper all over the living room.

In Despicable Me 2 Stuart, along with Minion Dave, are undercover with Gru, in the cupcake shop at the Paradise Mall. He is also the Minion pushing the accelerator pedal on Lucy’s car when he and Minion Dave rescue Gru and Lucy before Eduardo catches them at his restaurant.

With his authentic movie voice, this quirky little action figure is sure to delight Minion lovers of all ages.

Laughing Minion Stuart Action Figure Features

At an impressive 8-inches tall, this Stuart Minion action figure is large enough to get noticed but also at a comfortable size for smaller hands to take full advantage of Stuart’s features.

From his soft rubber-like skin to his posable arms and legs, Stuart can assume any number of different positions while delivering familiar sounds and phrases.

Here are the features of Despicable Me Stuart we think are worth noting:

 

  1. Minion Stuart looks just like his character from Despicable Me. He has a sincere, warm brown eye, the iconic denim look overalls worn by all the Minions with black shiny shoes and black gloves. His hair is neatly combed (painted on) and parted in the middle. He also has the authentic sounding voice of his movie character. The “Gru” emblem is featured on a center overalls pocket.
  2. Stuart’s hard plastic arms are posable. His shoulders have ball joints, his elbows have hinged joints and hands swivel for any number of poses and gestures.
  3. His feet can be turned for a number of different stances and he is self-supporting meaning that although he appears top heavy, he easily stands on his own.
  4. Pressing the “Gru” emblem on his overalls pocket will get him talking.
  5. Move his head from side to side and you will see his eye move in the direction of your tilt. When you tilt his head back his eye lid will close.
  6. He says “BeDo” just like Minion Carl during the Despicable Me 2 scene when Gru sets fire to the telephone on his desk. Fireman Stuart is the Minion hosing Carl down with a fire extinguisher during that scene.
  7. This Stuart Minion action figure has a unique LOL (laugh out loud) mode that the other Despicable Me action figures do not have. You can put Minion Stuart in LOL mode by pressing his overalls pocket in succession 6 times — any way you move him then sends him into fits of giggles that will get you laughing right along with him.
  8. With over 45 sayings and giggles this playful and funny, video game-loving Despicable Me Minion seemingly comes to life.
  9. Stuart runs on two (2) AA-Alkaline batteries that are installed at his base. Batteries ARE included with purchase, however, these batteries are for in-store “Try Me” purposes only. For all the features to fully function, fresh AA-batteries should be installed as the demo batteries are not full strength.

Conclusion

Stuart needs a little love in return for plenty of laughs. As one of the most sincere, yet innocent of the Minion clan, Stuart is often bullied and teased by other Minions in the Despicable Me films.

He can certainly hold his own as an action figure with his adorable, infectious laugh and is the ONLY Despicable Me action figure with the LOL (laugh out loud) mode of play.

At 8-inches tall with over 45 sayings and sounds, he is a good value as an action figure, conversation piece, collectors item or just a fun little yellow buddy to have around when you need a smile.

Despicable Me Stuart is officially licensed merchandise that has been made outside the US and is imported. Pricing for Stuart has been determined by the supplier and not this website. Pricing WILL change based on product availability and popularity.

Despicable Me 2 Stuart Minion with Fart Gun

Stuart, this crazy almost 5-inch little one-eyed Minion from Despicable Me, looks like he’s ready for action equipped with his own Fart Dart Launcher Gun.

Any fan of the Universal Pictures Despicable Me film franchise, who loves Minions and laughs or giggles at the word “fart”, will enjoy fart blasting from Stuart’s launcher.

Fans will remember that Gru’s order to Dr. Nefario for a DART GUN in Despicable Me 2 was misinterpreted and instead he was presented a FART Gun — not a bad weapon after all because this weapon’s fart gas knocks out its target when inhaled.

Minion Stuart has so much fun with this weapon himself, that his gray goggled eye and his mouth (with perfectly aligned teeth) move when you press the pocket on his denim-colored overalls.

  • The Fart Dart Gun upsets his balance when it is attached and he may fall over
  • Stuart’s Fart Launcher Gun is included and comes with two (2) green gassy-looking darts that can be fired when the trigger is squeezed
  • The fart gun makes a “Pffft” firing sound rather than an actual fart sound as in the Despicable Me movies
  • Because there are small parts, the manufacturer recommends this Despicable Me Stuart for ages 4 and older
  • Fart Dart Stuart is officially licensed Universal Despicable Me merchandise that is made in China and imported
  • He is distributed by Thinkway Toys and arrives in original packaging for collectors
  • There are no batteries needed and the only assembly is inserting the gas darts into the fart launcher
  • Prices for this Despicable Me Stuart Action Figure are set by the supplier and not this website
