The Minions Are Taking Over Your House For Christmas


The minions are these cute yellow creatures from Despicable Me. After making their first appearance in the original Despicable Me movie, they appeared again in ‘Despicable Me 2’ and recently had their very own feature movie simply titled Minions.

Even if you haven’t seen the cartoons yet, you probably have seen the Minions. They are on every cereal and cookie box and chances are, a live minion came knocking at your door on Halloween.

Minions are everywhere because children love them! They are funny, silly and adorable. So why not make your children happy this Christmas with some inflatable Minions decorations?

Inflatable decorations are a perfect way to make your house stand out if you are into Christmas decorations. They are very easy to install and do not take much space once it is time to take them down. You can get creative and install several airblown decorations around your home besides creating a light show or decide to keep things simple and install just a couple. Your children will absolutely love having some air-blown minions in their yard!

Even though Despicable Me and the Minions movie were not about Christmas, there are holiday-themed decorations available. These inflatable minions are wearing red hats which create the right feel for the season. And since the holiday is all about making your children happy, why not decorate your lawn with their favorite cartoon characters?

All the minions might look the same to you, but they actually have names and your children probably have a favorite. You can find Gemmy outdoor inflatables that feature Bob, Dave, Carl, Stuart or Kevin just to name a few. You can tell them apart by the shape of their heads, the number of eyes they have and what their hair looks like.

You also need to know about the way the minions talk. You can skip this section if you have watched the cartoons, but you should keep reading if you missed Despicable Me and the Minions movie. The minions have their very own language that is actually a mix of French, Spanish and Italian. They say wacky sentences that do not mean anything but the children love to repeat them. Do not be surprised if you hear a lot of ‘minion-talk’ from your children once you install these cuties!

There are different ways of buying inflatable decorations for Christmas. You can visit a local retailer to see what they have in stock and ask about Minions decorations. It is very likely that large stores in your area will carry them given how popular the minions are. However, the selection might be limited and you might have to drive to a further location to find the decorations you want.

Several online stores, as well as sellers on eBay and Amazon, are currently offering them. You don’t have to wait for these decorations to appear in local stores and won’t have to stand in line! However, it is best to order soon so that you receive your decorations in time for the Holiday season.

There are a few things to look for when ordering inflatable Minion decorations online. First of all, do some background research on the seller or the online store. Make sure they have a great reputation, value their customers and make it easy to return your purchase in case you are not satisfied. You should also look for sellers who offer a guaranteed delivery date.

Pay attention to the size of the outdoor inflatables you order. Pictures can make it difficult to assess how large a decoration really is. A good seller should clearly list the dimensions of the items they offer. Do not hesitate to contact a seller if you need more details about a decoration and do not order an item if you cannot find information about its dimensions.

You should also make sure you get blow-up minion decorations that are officially licensed. There are a lot of copies and knock-offs that are usually cheaper and feature images from the cartoons on the box, which makes it difficult to tell them apart from the real thing. However, the inflated minions will not look like the real thing. You will find that licensed products are a little more expensive, but the quality is definitely worth it.

Inflatable Minions are a great way to decorate your home for the holiday season. You will have unique decorations that your children and every child in the neighborhood will love. Take the time to shop around online to find the best inflatable decorations and start planning your display to get in the Christmas spirit!
