Arthur Price Despicable Me children’s collection – Review

Ever since they first saw Despicable Me Rhys and Nerys have been big fans of the minions.

We’ve had some plastic plates with minions on for about a year now that still get used all the time, and they make us all smile every time we see the happy little minion faces on them!

So when I was asked if we would like to review a proper china dinner set from Arthur Price, featuring the minions, along with a themed set of children’s cutlery, I jumped at the chance knowing the children would love them.


The ‘sea of minions‘ children’s set contains a china bowl, plate and mug.

As soon as I opened the box I was impressed with the quality.  These are a pretty big jump up from the plastic plates we’ve been using up till now to get our minion fix!

The designs on the bowl, plate and mug are vibrant and colourful and perfect for any Despicable me fans out there.  All the items are microwave and dishwasher safe too which makes life easier for us parents.

Nerys couldn’t wait to test out the set and kept looking round the kitchen to see what she could ask for that involved using the different items!


The bowl is perfect for cereal in the mornings, and the mug is the perfect size for little hands.

I was a bit concerned at first about giving a bone china mug to my three year old, but actually it feels nice and sturdy and she absolutely loves drinking her apple juice from it!

After checking out the crockery we moved on to the children’s cutlery set.


The set contains a knife and fork and a big and little spoon.

The cutlery is a lovely size for little hands, and is chunky with a good weight to it so it feels really nice to eat with.

Each item has a picture of a minion on it and a little catchphrase too, which really adds to the fun factor of the set.


I really love the idea of the children having their own set of cutlery to use, that’s a step up from the more babyish bits and pieces we still have in the kitchen drawer.

Being from Arthur Price I get the feeling that these bits will stand the test of time and will hopefully end up in either Rhys or Nerys’ kitchen when they’re older, in the same way that we have the cutlery Steve used as a child in our kitchen now.

Arthur Price have been around since 1902 and have supplied Royal families and Heads of State, so you can trust that they are all about quality!  The cutlery set is made of the finest stainless steel and even comes with a 15 year guarantee, that’s how confident they are in the longevity of their products.


The only issue I can see us having is that the children might fight over who gets to use these Despicable Me things at meal times.  I may well end up having to buy a second set to keep the peace!

If you have a little Minions fan in your life then either of these sets would make a lovely gift for them.
