Minions on Wheels Giveaway: Dynacraft Folding Scooter

I’ve had Minions on the brain lately. Last week I shared my Tipsy Minion cocktail recipe, and now I’ve got a giveaway for y’all for one of Levi’s favorite outdoor toys: the Dynacraft foldable scooter.

Levi Dynacraft Minion Scooter

Dynacraft is a US company that’s been making bikes pretty much as long as I’ve been alive (we’ll call it 30+ years). They’ve got a new line of Minions bikes and scooters designed specifically for 5-8 year olds, featuring their classic well-made designs and bright, eye-catching colors. 

They sent Levi their The Minion Folding Scooter, which is perfect since he just turned 5 last month. It has an easily adjustable handlebar with soft cushion grips that adapts to your child’s height, and it folds for easy transport to the park or vacation spots.

When the box arrived at our doorstep, he couldn’t wait to get his hands on it.


He might have been *just* a little bit happy to find out what was in the box 🙂

The scooter was delivered partially assembled – all we needed to do was pop the handle bars in place and adjust the height once we unfolded it.

Happy Face Scooter

The Dynacraft scooter is one of the lightest I’ve come across. While the folding feature is nice, it’s not something I’ve used much. Since the scooter is so light, it’s easy to just pop in the trunk without folding down, but if you did need to tuck it into a small space, it’s nice to have that ability.

Available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 at Toys”R”Us, I think the Minion Folding Scooter makes a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season.

Win It

  1. Amanda Munoz says:

    This is awesome!! My lil girl lives to watch brother on his scooter and a minions one would make her lose it!

  2. Elizabeth Wisniewski says:

    My youngest is one of the biggest minion fans out there. I can not tell you how many times we have had “Happy” Mr Gru themed family dance parties. He would LOVE a minion scooter!

  3. I like the scooter because it looks like the perfect size for my little grandson. He loves the Minions too!

  4. Melanie Morin says:

    What I like about it is that it is lightweight so my daughter could carry it herself, and it has minions on it (who doesn’t like minions?). My little girl is a daredevil and I feel she would have a lot of fun learning to ride that scooter!

  5. My daughter loves riding her brother’s scooter and she would love to have one of her own to race him on

  6. melissa Resnick says:

    this would be great for christmas for my grandson

  7. Shannon Baas says:

    My nephew is a huge Minions fan and has been wanting a scooter.

  8. beth shepherd says:

    My daughter is a huge minion fan and would absolutely love this. Thank you

  9. We’re HUGE minion fans. When Mcdonalds had their minion toys, we had to collect them all. We ate so much McDonalds, which I HATE, just to get them. My youngest is definitely a purple minion.

  10. Brittney House says:

    It looks like a fun way for my son to get some exercise.

  11. My Grandson loves The Minions! This would be an awesome gift for him, I’m sure he would love it because he loves all things Minions.

  12. My daughter referred to the movies as “Pickle Me” for the longest time. Now she has it right, but it was so cute it made it hard to correct her. She loved seeing the new movie in the theater.

  13. I visited the site and I like that you can browse their products by age or size.

  14. I would love to win this scooter since it will cut down on Christmas shopping, because let’s face it, who wants to be out at the stores between Thanksgiving and Christmas?? (My kids are also getting Minion duvet covers so it would really be a Minion Christmas!)

  15. Heather Forseth Grant says:

    My kids are all too old for this cutie scooter, but I would LOVE to win it so I can give it to a child/family in need at Christmas! Who doesn’t love minions, right?!!

  16. Megan Hofbauer says:

    Sometimes I think my 4 year old son is a minion. We have the despicable me fart gun. It’s funny for 5 minutes but after the 100th fart I want to turn into Gru.

  17. Why did the Minion cross the road? BANANA
    (My son says that all the time and I really wanted to annoy someone else with it!)

  18. It’s so cute! My preschooler loves the Minions and cracks up whenever they come on! Especially when they say “banana!” Then my toddler gets it on it too and my living room is turned into a jungle full of monkeys! Lol
    Plus it’s good exercise since she outgrew her bike!

  19. We are pretty obsessed with Minions around here! We went to Disney 2 years ago and spent the whole time talking about Minions. We probably should have gone to Universal instead!

  20. Oh my gosh – their My Little Pony 24v scooter would be my daughters dream ride! Hehe
    It’s so cute!
    I had never heard of Dynacraft before but they have some really nice looking products! 🙂

  21. I just visited their website. My son just started loving to ride his bike, and I think we definitely need to invest in the bike with the fart gun blaster – because farts are probably his favorite thing.

  22. Kristen Whitney says:

    My daughter loves anything with minions, except for the despicable me movies for some reason. She would love this scooter!

  23. Kristen Whitney says:

    Did you hear about the new minion pirate movie they are making?….
    It’s rated, Arrrrrrrrrrrgh…

  24. tara darity says:

    This is awesome! It would be hard to pick which of the 3 kids to give it to! I know they all would love it!!

  25. We love Minions in our household. Last week we saw the latest Minion movie, it was hilarious!!

  26. I learned Dynacraft has been recognized as the leader in the wheeled goods category for 30 years!!

  27. What is a minions favorite fruit? Banana

  28. Cassandra mccane says:

    My son would love this 🙂 While visiting my dad over the summer he said I was a horrible mother and now had two main goals for our trip. 1. To teach my 3 year old what the musical truck was that kids flocked to (“why isn’t he BEGGING for ice cream right now? Wait, he doesn’t know what the ice cream truck is?! What is wrong with you? That’s just not right.”) and 2. “Has he seen despicable me? The minions movie just came out.. are you serious…WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?”. Let’s just say my dad usually gets his way and my 3 year old is well versed in minion speak and our local ice cream man’s name is Steven.

  29. I am not sure who is a bigger minion fan – me or my stepdaughter. Who doesn’t want a couple of minions of their own?? This scooter would make a great surprise for my stepdaughter. Thanks for the chance!

  30. My stepdaughter would love the Zombie Princess scooter. Thanks!

  31. I have 9 (!) nieces and nephews, and I know several of them would love to have this scooter. My fingers are crossed that I can win it for them.

  32. Our granddaughter would love one of these

  33. My 5 year old son would be tickled to own a minons scooter. My son is a big fan of te minons.

  34. I learned they have a HOT WHEELS 3-WHEEL SCOOTER W/LIGHTS & SOUNDS

  35. What do we want Banana! When do we want it? Banana

  36. I found that DynaCraft makes a really cool 6V Avengers Car.

  37. james doyle says:

    6V Avengers Car is sweet. Do you know what is as sweet? A minion banana lol.

  38. my grand son loves minions this would be perfect

  39. Oh Carter loves the Minions! He wants to be a Minion for Halloween this fall. This would be perfect for him to scoot along when we go trick or treating!

  40. I learned that they have a Register Your Ride! Not only do they have the information if your bike is stolen, but also will help if you need parts down the road. And..they have a weekly giveaway too for those who register their ride!

  41. Sharon Kaminski says:

    I learned about the different bikes and scooters that dynacraft has, interesting.

  42. I would love to get this scooter for my grandson. He loves both Minions and scooters.

  43. I visited the website and learned it was important to conduct a helmet check for safety.

  44. we like the minions but my dd would love the hello kitty scooter!

  45. Kimberly M. says:

    I like this Dynacraft because my grandsons all are big Minion junkies. If it’s minions they have to have it is what they say. They also love scooters. Of course I love the Minions too. They just make adults and children smile. They might not talk the same language but they sure communicate fun.

  46. Kimberly M. says:

    I didn’t realize Dynacraft make scooters, bike, dirt bikes, and quads. That is amazing. They have some really great products.

  47. Kimberly M. says:

    My grandson told me this joke.
    What is yellow and brown and has one eye? Stuart dipped in chocolate.

  48. This scooter is very cool. My youngest has been begging for a scooter like his big brother has, and with his obsession with minions this would be perfect!

  49. This scooter would be great to have kids be active and would be good for my daughter during walks.

  50. Joke:
    Silas Ramsbottom: My name’s Silas, Silas Ramsbottom.
    Kevin the Minion: He said bottom.

  51. I like that it is light weight and easy to fold up and take along anywhere. My grandson has a scooter on his wish list!

  52. I would love this for my nephews. They just had a Minion themed party, and they would be estatic over this. My sister even made them a minion birthday cake! I was impressed!

  53. After visiting the website, I learned that the company assists as many non-profit organizations in the northern San Francisco Bay Area as they can! Cool! love when companies give back!

  54. A minion and his banana, stil a better love story than twilight. 🙂

  55. Shauntea Crutcher says:

    My four year old son loves to watch the Despicable Me movies and he would really enjoy this scooter.

  56. Patricia Delgado says:

    Dynacraft is a trusted brand for me, it means sturdy reliable and safe.

  57. Patricia Delgado says:

    I like that you can register your ride at and if a recall should happen you will be notified, you can also purchase replacement parts there.

  67. my lil nephew is obsessed with minions, i would love to win this for his Christmas present

  68. WELL. My kids are 5 and 7, and both boys.. so as you can imagine they’re a bit destructive. The beat up old formerly decorated in spiderman scooter we had for years finally took its last breath and my older boy came walking home with the scooter in one hand and the wheels in the other. OH NO!! So as you can imagine, we are in need of a new scooter 😉

  69. tina reynolds says:

    Because my five year old son is minion crazy I think after the movie he said the word banana at least a million times lol
