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:
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!
SWEET LINKS BRACELET MAKER ($24.99, Ages 8+)
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.
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!
