Before when I use to ask my child or my niece or nephew what they wanted for their Birthday or for Christmas and they would reply with some sort of toy, my response would usually be less than absorbed.
Yes, I sadly caught the BA (Boring Adult) Syndrome.
I forgot how much toys not only brought joy and elation to a child on Christmas morning, but the many adventures and education it actually brought as well.
I learned to count as a toddler using toys. I learned to walk using toys. I grasped math and science growing up with toys.
We grow up and we forget the value of play.
What I admire about Mastermind Toys is that they carry only the best quality selection of toys that get your brain and body going along with art of play. There’s nothing wasted nor humdrum about them.

My daughter, son, husband, brother, sister, mom, dad, nephew, neighbour, friend… LOVED building with the Tegu Magnetic Wooden Building Blocks. Age on the box says 0-99 for a reason — it’s so much fun!
Because of their amazing quality and structure, this is one toy that is sure to last many, many years. Possibly even a hand-me-down to my future grand-kids!
My daughter loves underwater life. She is begging me for a big aquarium filled with fish, turtles, starfish, sharks, manta rays, octopus and more.
I guess for now we will settle with these cool “robo-fish” as my husband likes to call them.
The Hexbug Aquabot is the first water-born Hexbug micro robotic creature with smart fish technology! Powered by electro-magnetic propulsion, this swimming fish propels itself to explore its environment. The colourful Hexbug Aquabot offers kids the fun experience of having a pet fish, without all the messy clean-up. The Aquabots are equipped with an automatic on and off sensor that activates when submerged in water, a design element meant to get kids thinking about the science behind the robot.
ARV $8.99/each,
This is one stocking stuffer of small gift idea that will please any child! No matter how picky they can be!

  1. Through play, children learn so many life skills such as organization, logical thinking, teamwork, cooperation… Also – once they get to be adults, there isn’t always a lot of time for play – so it’s best to encourage them to enjoy it as much as they can now!
