Say ‘bello’ to the new Despicable Me “Minions” fashion collection

If you ever thought the Minions were just another cartoon character, you’re hugely mistaken. The cuddly, loveable yellow creatures of the Despicable Me fame, will soon be featured in retail stores in a minion-inspired fashion line, called the “Minions Bello Yellow Collection” – bello meaning “hello” in Minion language.
