Can ask when mnhq will be doing the draw to win the goody bag? And will we be informed via email or pm? Only my email isn't working too well, or will the winner be named on this thread?

Just to add, ds (age 5) has worn his minion mask to school every day since the O2 and took his colouring sheet in as well. Ds1 has refrained from spilling the ending and ds2 is keen to see a film all about the origin of the minions.

5madthings Sun 23-Jun-13 22:11:17

Ds4 jasa worn his mask to school and my boys have managed not to spill the beans on the ending as well, I am most I pressed!

It really was a fab day out grin

Nerfmother Sun 23-Jun-13 22:28:12

How cute, iirc both ds 4s had a little bonding moment in the foyer grin

5madthings Sun 23-Jun-13 22:35:19

Nerfmother Sun 23-Jun-13 22:36:41

We'll have to road test something else so they can catch up! Shame they are too small for Facebook!

5madthings Sun 23-Jun-13 22:46:12

Def! It was really lovely actually how the kids all made friends with each other. As adults we could all learn a lot about how friendly and accepting they are. All the children were very welk behaved smile

Nerfmother Sun 23-Jun-13 22:55:28

Oooh, notmeactualname; we all thought your DS was gorgeous dressed as a minion grin

I wish I had chatted to more people now. Everyone, me especially, seemed very reserved, though there were lots of knowing smiles exchanged grin

Fabulous family fun. A great film suitable for all the family and very, very funny!

5 out of 5 from us all

They loved the daughter with the pink hat. "Eeeew..." has now been added to favourite phrases for them to use! My favourite character was Lucy.

- What did your DCs love best about the day?
The life size characters were, without doubt the most terrifying part of the day for my 3 year old! The activities in the foyer beforehand and sweeties on teh seats definitely made for an excitable trip for them both. They both very much the film, the smallest DC wanted to watch it again yesterday!

Very positive. We all very much enjoyed the film and the other experiences really added to our visit.
