I love, love, love Mastermind Toys. Canadian owned and operated, Mastermind Toys stocks more than 10,000 educational and fun toys, books, games, crafts, puzzles and science kits. Don’t worry about feeling overwhelmed because the stores are always neat and organized. The friendly staff is always ready to help you find what you are looking for. Having sold toys for over 30 years has made them experts! Currently there are 39 stores and growing.
I have raved on twitter and Instagram about how fun and easy Mastermind Toys makes toy buying. There was the Christmas that I did 90% of my shopping on the Mastermind website, including stocking stuffers! How stress free it was to open boxes filled with already wrapped and labeled presents from “Santa”. Or how I dashed in to a Mastermind store, on my way to drop my daughter off at a party, and left less that 20 minutes later with the perfect gift expertly wrapped… more than once.
Mastermind Toys has released their TOP 25 TOYS FOR SUMMER 2015 and it includes Cool Bikes, Funky Kites, Self-Sealing Water Balloons, High Powered Baseball Bat, Glow-In-The Dark Sand, Groovy Swim Goggles and a Bubble-Blowing Robot! You can see the complete list on the Mastermind Toys website HERE. Here are a few I liked:
“BUMP ‘N’ BUBBLES” ROBOT BUBBLE MACHINE ($21.99), Ages 3+
This cute robot is a motorized, moving, continuous bubble-blower! As it travels across the ground and bumps into objects, it will spin and redirect as it blows bubbles everywhere!
CRUSH-IT BASEBALL BAT ($19.99), Ages 6+
The adjustable high-powered bat for high-powered hits! It’s the only baseball bat that offers the lightweight power of a tennis racquet. High-tension strings provide a spring-action barrel with a power-boost sweet spot for grand slam power! An adjustable Power Knob allows you to adjust the string tension for playing in a large field or small backyard! It’s easy to swing and provides a “Whoosh” sound. A high-performance foam ball included.
SLACKERS SLIDE & SURF ($69.99), Ages 5+
Catch a backyard wave! Three times the length, three times the fun, this giant 30-foot water slide is triple the size of other slides on the market. Made with twice the strength and durability, Slide & Surf is built to last for endless water fun. Riders can slide or skimboard on Slide & Surf’s slick sliding surface! New padded start, misting side walls and splash pool will make the summer fun memorable for years to come. Skim Board available separately for $39.99.
CHRONOBOMB ($49.99), Ages 7+
Set up your own laser field using the clamps and string. Then, pretend you’re a spy on a super secret mission to defuse a bomb before your agency’s intel is destroyed. Crawl and climb through the laser field, but be careful…if you touch the strings, time will speed up and then you’ll really have to hurry!
HYDRO ROCKET SPLASH BLASTER ($24.99), Ages 5+
Stomp! Splash! Soar! A garden hose powered rocket: fun streaks through the air leaving an explosion of water behind. Blasting up to 30 feet, this hydro powered rocket is backyard water excitement. Screw the stomp pad onto the garden hose. Turn on the water, stomp the pad and whoosh, the rocket blasts into the air!
So many great choices to add to your summer fun. I have some news… the good people at Mastermind Toys want to help you find the perfect summer toy by offering one of my readers a $50 gift card. The giveaway is open to Canadian residents who have reached the age of majority. The giveaway will end at 12:00 PM EST on Friday. June 12th 2015. Good luck!
