Minions, the movie has just released in 18th June 2015 and everything is about them. If you are a fan. I hope you not missing any of those Minion waves. But first, let’s look back on how it all started……….
Minions was introduced to the world in 2010 when Despicable Me was released. But Minion wasn't such a big hit back then. Around 1 to 2 years after the release of Despicable Me, the second series was set to release. Universal Pictures began releasing short clips of Minion to promote Despicable Me 2. That’s when the Minion wave had hit and everybody fell in love with this little yellow adorable friends!

2013 was definitely the biggest wave of Minions when the Despicable Me 2 was released in cinemas and McDonald’s were giving out Minions in their Happy Meals. That’s when it really hit me that MINIONS ARE NO LONGER SMALL YELLOW ADORABLE FRIENDS! THEY WERE BIG! The que outside McDonalds in 2013 was unbelievably LOONGGGGGG. And obviously Happy Meals are not for kids anymore. The ques are full of adults. On the initial release of Minion toys in McDonalds, many fans were disappointed by the quality of the product, but the demand was getting higher and higher by the week and the ques are getting longer. Nobody is getting enough of MINIONS!
