Minions are a species of tiny yellow henchmen earnestly driven by the desire to serve an evil boss. They often make mistakes because they are selfish, easily distracted, and generally inept. They vary in height, but it’s safe to say they’re between 2 and 3 feet tall. They communicate using a gibberish language that’s understandable to them and a few people who have longstanding relationships with them. They’re also resilient. Minions have been turned into evil purple versions of themselves, transformed into giants, crushed, tortured, and buried without being worse for wear (this may be the reason they’ve survived so long). Though it is often hard for the layperson to distinguish one Minion from another, they all have unique personalities and names; which their masters quickly learn!
Star of the Despicable Me and Minions movies; Bob is child-like minion often accompanied by his teddy bear. In an equally lovable detail, Bob is heterochromic (he has different coloured eyes).
Steiff’s interpretation of Bob is made from bright yellow coloured mohair. He has embroidered features and wears his trademark cotton denim dungarees featuring his master Gru’s logo on the front pocket, his goggles and black gloves and boots. He has a gold plated ‘Button in Ear’.
Bob is limited to 1,500 pieces and comes with his numbered certificate in a Steiff gift box with its original protective cardboard outer sleeve.
