[Giveaway] Mastermind Toys Opens Third Ottawa Location


My go-to store for all occasions is Mastermind Toys. I have a $25/child limit when my kiddos are invited to birthday parties. My $25 goes a long way at Mastermind Toys. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen a tweet (or two) my appreciation for how easy gift buying is. The free gift wrap is a bonus that I truly appreciate. Many a gift has been purchased on the way to the party!

The new Barrhaven store features the same bright, warm and colourful atmosphere as our sister stores in Kanata (145 Roland Michener Dr.) and at 1091 St. Laurent Blvd and is stocked to the rafters with our a distinct collection of over 10,000 educational and fun toys, books, games, arts and crafts, puzzles and science kits.

Mastermind Toys has a brand new location opening in the Ottawa Area. The third location will be at 71 Marketplace Avenue in Barrhaven. The Grand Opening is July 10-13, 2014 and promises to be a blast. The people at Mastermind Toys know how to have fun and it shows! The opening celebrations include free loot bags for kids, cupcakes (Saturday only), giveaways and even a great offer for shoppers.

When you visit the Grand Opening make sure to take a peek at my favorite toys that made the list of:

Mastermind Toys Summer Must Haves


SMAK-A-BALL ($22.99, Ages 6+)

It’s Smakable fun for everyone! Catch and smack the large beach ball with your paddle made of pool noodles. Smack the ball back and forth or take your play to the next level with Monkey in the Middle or any of your other favourite catch games.

This one is coming to the cottage! In the lake of on the dock, my kids will have hours of fun with this game!



Using this unique tool, weave mini-barbell beads into one-of-a kind bracelets! Perfect to bring with you on the road or to camp to make and exchange with your friends!

I will be storing this one at the cottage for a rainy day.  The bracelet maker will be a nice surprise for all the cousins when they are trapped indoors.

You can see all of the toys in action on Mastermind Toys YouTube Channel and you can shop online HERE.  Enjoy!


The generous people of Mastermind Toys are giving one of my readers a $50 gift card to spend in store! The giveaway is open to Canada. Help us celebrate the grand opening!

    I would be most interested in buying rainbow loom stuff. My whole family enjoys making bracelets and characters and we are in need of more looms and elastics!

  2. Debra R says

    I think I would like non-battery operated mind games to keep kids mentally active. Makes for fun weekend gatherings, for the adults, too.

  3. Susan Hanley says

    I, too, love the Mastermind Store in my town. I would like to pick up the Lazer Pitch Baseball set. All of my young grandkids are in baseball for the first time this year. This would help with their swing.

  4. Angela Mitchell says

    I’d like to get a kite or two. We have great kite flying spots here on the west coast of BC.

  5. jen s. says

    The Jr. Mask, Snork & Fins Super Set is great and I also think the Pustefix Multi Bubbler would be lots of fun in the summer.

  6. Monique L.S. says

    I’ve always wanted a Zoku, and summer is a perfect excuse. I would get the Zoku Original Quick Pop Maker.

  7. Susan says

    Wow, my 2 grandsons, who are getting a new baby sister today (!!!) would continue to feel so special if I could give them this gift!

  8. Edmond says
