*~CLOSED~* Want $100 to Spend at Mastermind Toys?


You know we love us some Mastermind Toys, right? We love that it’s Canadian owned and operated, and that it’s been around for more than 30 years. With 45 stores across Canada (plus you can shop online), it’s easy to find and is our go-to place for toys for our kids, gifts for friends, and ok, maybe games for us, too. They’ve always got the coolest stuff, and they offer free gift wrapping in store, which, let me tell you, always saves my butt when shopping 5 minutes before a birthday party.

Their staff is always great, too. Recently, we were in their Oshawa store picking up a gift to take to a birthday party, when one of the staff struck up a conversation with our son. He took the time to ask what our (very shy) son was into, and then mentioned some related toys he might like. As it turned out, our son ended up working extra chores in order to save up for the toy he recommended — a board game using Hexbugs. Gotta love those toy experts!

Whether you’re looking for the perfect scooter for your child, the best toys for long weekends, or the newest fun things on the market, Mastermind’s got it all. Plus Lego. Omg so much Lego. And Calico Critters! Beanie Boos! All the very coolest science kits! Books! Dolls! Ahhhhh! Sorry, I just seriously love it there.

Anyhow, our friends at Mastermind Toys sent our kids some games to play on those rainy days when it’s just too crummy to go outside to play. We played Wet Head ($26.99, 4+), the Maze Racers Game ($49.99, 8+) and the Codenames Game ($34.99, 14+) with them. Wet Head is HILARIOUS, and so, so fun to play with the whole family. Maze Racers was great for our kids (ages 9 and 6) but Codenames was over the six-year-old’s head, so is better for us to play with just our daughter at the moment.

Wet Head Water Roulette game review -- IDontBlog.ca



Play this one outside, unless you’re a-ok with water all over the place. (You could fill the little reservoir with less water, but then it’s less fun seeing someone get drenched!) Take a look at the video to see how this game works.



Codenames is a great game for the over-12 crowd. Find out more at Mastermind Toys. -- IDontBlog.caI love that this game is designed for an older crowd. It’s important to have fun family game nights with older kids, too! Our daughter picked up on it (she’s 9), but typically I’d say this is good for 12+. Teams compete to see who can find all their agents first, through one-word clues. We adjusted the playing to include our son but we’ll have to wait a couple years to truly love this one.



The Maze Racers Game at Mastermind Toys is a fun challenge for kids -- find out more at IDontBlog.ca

The idea here is to use the little magnet-backed foam pieces to build your own marble maze. There are two game boards, so each player builds their own maze, then passes it to the opposing player to roll their marble through the maze. Players tilt the boards to move the marble through the maze, and the first to get to the end wins! The only real con to this game are the magnetic pieces — not safe for animals or young kids, so be sure to keep the pieces all together up on the table.
