Toy Review: The Secret Life of Pets Blind Bag
I simply cannot wait to go and see the new Illumination Entertainment movie, The Secret Life of Pets, with our son! The trailers are so cute! Have you ever wondered what your pets do when you close the front door behind you? Well, apparently your cat snoops through your refrigerator, your parakeet plays a flight simulator and takes an interactive flight in your living room, and, finally, your loyal pup stands by the front door, anxiously waiting for you to return. The main characters are a potpourri of different animals, from a big, scraggy dog named, Duke, to a lovable, indifferent, chubby cat named Chloe. I love Chloe! She is so chubby and cute!
The Minions Movie, also released by Illumination Entertainment, and a prequel to the Despicable Me franchise, was released with a chock full of fabulous toys. The same goes for The Secret Life of Pets. There are plush dolls for each character as well as toy figures. I purchased a bunch of blind bags. The blind bags retail for $2.99 each, and are very easy to find. I opened a few of them and was delighted to get a silver exclusive pet - it was Snowball, the super excited bunny. You can get one of nine figures, and if you're lucky you will find a silver or gold version of a pet. I highly recommend this toy, not only for it's price point, but the overall quality of the toy itself.
The summer is full of great films to see! And with that more toys to review! Which film are you looking forward to this summer - Finding Dory and The Secret Life of Pets are the top on my list. Well, Swiss Army Man definitely on there, too! I can't imagine any toys coming out with that film,
The Secret Life of Pets will be released July 8, 2016.
