Mastermind Toys Giveaway!

I haven't really started Christmas shopping for my children yet, (or for anyone else, for that matter!) but there are a few stores I know I'll be hitting to get all that I need—like Mastermind Toys. I'm a pretty efficient shopper, and I'm one of those people who actually enjoys shopping even on December 24th. 'Tis the season, after all!

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.




Mastermind Toys has done a great job putting together an awesome Holiday Gift Guide  designed to make your job easier. It is packed with amazing gift ideas for girls and boys of all ages, and you'll have fun checking things off your list thanks to the handy guide. The kids will love it, too.

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?

To enter, leave me a comment below telling me one item that is on your child's wish list this holiday season.

I was just there today!! The staff was so great and very helpful. We were actually looking at that very globe too.

My daughter loves, loves Calico Critters and they have a great selection. My son loves all things Lego...again, great selection.
My youngest would love one of their giant stuffed animals - she's sure they are meant to ride. LOL

My kids both love Lego so I am going to get them each a set or two this year. Thanks for the giveaway!

I am now shopping for a granddaughter! I had four children and they all loved Mastermind. She just had a baby sister so I want to buy her a nice baby doll with accessories so she can imitate her mom and do some mothering herself. We all have December birthdays, including my daughter, so it is an expensive month!! :)

My daughter is hoping for an American Girl and my son is all about castles this year - we will have to see what Santa can do!

Christy said...

That's a favourite store in our household. My 6 year old is all Lego all the time this year and my 4 year old loves the piano that you walk on to make noise that was set up there - it's already wrapped :)

That globe is amazing! My daughter always has a remote control 'something' on her list (be it a car, truck, or helicopter!) and a build a bear... every year!

On my sons list are speed stacking cups!

Amber Hurtubise said...

My 3 year old daughter has asked for games (for her age) and books this Christmas. I'm sure Mastermind would be a great place to get her some. She also is very excited to get her new baby sister a special toy from herself. We will definitely be looking there as they always have great baby stuff too.
Thank you for the info on the science toys. My nephew has asked for a science kit. I'll add that to my list of things to check out.
