Despicable Me Prize Pack Giveaway & Minion Madness




Want to know what the most frequented blog post is here at Brimful Curiosities? My review of the Despicable Me: Sleepy Kittens Book has received numerous hits every single day since it was posted in July. Everyone seems to want to learn more about those kittens!

I secretly think the sleepy kittens might be more popular than the Minions that star in the film! Well, then again, maybe not. The Minions have been making appearances all over as of late. Did you see them in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the Statue of Liberty float last week? Some hardworking Minions also helped ring in opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange last Wednesday.



To help fuel the "Minion Madness" while looking forward to the Despicable Me DVD/Blu-ray release in a few weeks on December 14th, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is sponsoring a points-based sweepstakes program through January 2011. Fans can become “Masterminds” and participate in various activities and games and earn minions and the chance to win prizes. For more about the promotion and prizes, visit http://www.minionmadness.com




If you didn't win a copy of Sleepy Kittens in my last giveaway, here's another chance! Thanks to Universal Studios, Brimful Curiosities' readers can enter to win a Despicable Me Prize Pack.

One (1) Winner will receive:

* Despicable Me Nintendo DS game

We wanted to go and see the movie this summer, but never made it. Can not wait to see it on DVD. Thanks for the fun.

I thought I had left a comment before my retweet post... Anyway, we saw the movie on Monday and loved it!

sablelexi said...

We wanted to see the movie this summer, but somehow never made it there. Something we are reminded of every time we go to the movie, with the pre-movie clip they've been showing lately of the character from Despicable Me cleaning the screen.

I have not seen the movie yet. I think they had the strangest way of promoting this movie. I saw so many ads run across my favorite shows that by the time the movie came out I was sooo over it already. Now that it has been awhile I am ready to see it.

I posted a comment answering the question before my extra entries so posting it again (please discregard if it shows up twice).

The week we were supposed to go see it, my son got sick. We never got to reschedule another time to go. It looks like a great family movie and on the list to pick up for the holidays.
