Arthur Price And The Minions – A Match Made In Heaven

If you, or your little ones, are fans of those pesky yellow Minions, then you are going to love the latest launch from Arthur Price. The luxury cutlery, silverware and gift brand has created some gorgeous products to tie in with the launch of Despicable Me 3, and these would be perfect as a gift for a new baby, a Christening or a special birthday, or even just a treat for your favourite Minion fan. As ever with Arthur Price, the items are of the most beautiful Quality, and will be something that should be treasured forever.

Arthur Price is a Midlands based family business that was established in 1902 and can be found in most department stores. The Despicable Me collection shows that Arthur Price is a company that is able to move with the times and address modern trends, and also appeal to a younger audience. The Despicable Me collection is made up of two cutlery sets, the ‘Sea of Minions’ and ‘Expressions’, as well as a beautiful bone china dining set made up of a mug, a bowl and a plate.

The cutlery is of the highest standard, made of 18/10 stainless steel and presented in a lovely box which makes it perfect as a gift option. It comes with a 15 year guarantee, and each item of cutlery has a minion decoration on the handle. If you are trying to teach your child how to use a knife and fork properly, these pieces could be the perfect encouragement. The sets cost £24.95 each.

The ‘Sea of Minions’ bone china breakfast pieces are bright and vibrant, and can be purchased as individual pieces as well as being available in a two or three piece breakfast set. Prices start from £8.95 for the mug, and go up to £24.95 for the three piece set. I love the idea that you can buy the pieces separately, the cup may be a little small for an older child who could still love and use the plate and bowl. My boy, who is a major Minions fan as totally fallen in love with this set which certainly brightens up breakfast time.

Lamaloli – Clothes that Kids love

If you are looking for fun and affordable children’s clothes that are perfect for play and everyday wear, then I would definitely suggest you take a look at the Lamaloli Website. is the online-shop selling branded clothing for boys and girls who love Disney, Minions, Star Wars and basically every other super hero or Princess under the sun. The clothes are fantastic quality, come in a great range of sizes, and are totally affordable – so important when kids grow out of clothing so quickly.

I was recently challenged by Lamaloli to see just how much I could get for Joe for £40. I must admit that this was a challenge I relished, but decided not to limit it just to Joe. My niece Renee is Frozen crazy and Lamololi has a great range of products dedicated to this particular Disney favourite, so I chose a couple of pieces for her. Unfortunately Renee is tiny for her age, so they may not fit for a little while, but the pieces were in the sale and far too good to miss. I have detailed them below.

But now onto Joe. His current obsessions are Minions, so I was able to chose him some great pjs and a cool t-shirt from this range. We used loose cotton tea-shirts for when Joe does his karate practice, and these were really useful for this.  The Pyjamas were a great summer buy, short sleeved and with shorts rather than trousers,  making them great for sticky evenings.

We also chose a great Star Wars t-shirt emblazoned with Darth Vader. For some reason Joe loves the Star Wars bad guys far more than the goodies so this was a good choice, and again, this has been something Joe wears to his karate, but would also be perfect with shorts or jeans.

We completed our choices with some Phineas and Ferb long sleeved pyjamas and a pack of Skylanders pants. This made our total just over £40 for three pairs of pyjamas, 2 short sleeved t-shirts, I long sleeved top and 2 pairs of pants. I think this is amazing value for good quality products, especially as you can also get free delivery on all orders over £20.

Lamaloli has products that kids will love, and prices that parents will appreciate. Definitely worth a look.
