Since the Minions first burst onto our screens in the hit animated film Despicable Me the world has gone bananas’ for these small, yellow bundles of joy – and who can blame them.

As the rambunctious henchmen of criminal mastermind Gru, Minions love causing mischief and mayhem, and we love watching them. The Minions were the true stars of Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 and now they are to star in their very own feature film.

Here are 5 reasons why Minions absolutely rule.

2. Minions appreciate the little things in life

Minions approach the world and everything in it with the wide-eyed wonder and innocence of children. They appreciate the little things in life, like ‘bananas’ and ‘bapples’, and take joy in everything they do, finding the fun positive side to every task. In fact, Minions love just about everything and doesn’t need a little more joy in their lives?!

5. Minions like to laugh!

Minions have a great, infectious sense of humour. There are very few things that Minions do not find funny.  Some may find their humour childish but… they should just lighten up and join the mayhem! And let’s face it, they have the cutest laugh. Ever.
