As children get older (my boys are eight and almost six years old) their likes and wants change, making it a bit more challenging to shop for them. However, I love challenges, and I love finding perfect gifts for the two most deserving people in my life—my children.
My eight year old loves Minecraft. A lot. He also loves science and chemistry, and anything to do with the Elements. He's also reading "real" books now—novels—which makes me incredibly happy, so checking things off his list is not too hard.
My almost six year old loves music and movies. He's a character, this child of mine! His new interest is geography—he has a collection of globes and maps in his room, and he knows all the continents and major cities.
I knew that I wanted to give him something special this Christmas that would completely impress him. He always wants to know what time it is in other parts of the world, so when I came across the Night and Day Globe that Mastermind Toys sells, I knew it would be the perfect gift for him.
This is no ordinary globe, you guys—it's a clock and calendar, too. As it rotates, it shows the time of day and the date for any location on earth. It also shows where people on earth are experiencing sunrise, sunset, and twilight. Isn't that amazing? It'll even teach me a thing or two about different time zones around the world, as well.
From Rainbow Loom to Lego Mindstorms, there's something at Mastermind Toys for every child.
Since it is the season of giving, Mastermind Toys is giving away a $75 gift card to one of my awesome readers! How awesome is that?
