Mastermind Toys Opens in Abbotsford + Giveaway

I have been wishing upon a star, begging the Gods of love and praying night and day for years on end for someone to bring a proper toy store to Abbotsford. I hate driving to Langley to where another big toy store (shall remain nameless) is located because I frankly don’t really care for them since they carry pretty much everything the other stores do. So when I heard Mastermind Toys was coming to Abbotsford and now has already opened their doors. I cannot tell you how glad I am the God’s above listened!

The moment I stepped foot inside the new store located on South Fraser Way right next door to Starbucks in the strip mall where Safeway and Apple Betty’s is located. It was like imagination came to life. Colors everywhere, staff super friendly. The store is at 32470 South Fraser Way and is the 3rd store to open in British Columbia. Boy am I glad they picked my hometown!

They even have a staff member who greets you at the door when you walk in. I absolutely love that. I mean there is nothing cooler than someone saying: Hello welcome to Mastermind Toys is this your first visit? That’s Pretty cool and bound to make everyone’s day!

Mastermind started in 1984 by two brothers, Andy and Jonathan Levy in North Toronto, offering educational computer games to parents in the PC marketplace. Shortly after the Levy brothers discovered a need for speciality toys and they traveled the world to find the very best in toys and books to bring to their customers. 26 years later they have evolved, launching new stores but remaining true to their roots. Today they are one of Canada’s largest specialty toy and book retailers operating in three major provinces: Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

I could spend hours walking around Mastermind Toys. They have everything you could ever want. Playmobil, Lego, Dinosaurs, VTech, Fisher Price, Minecraft, Board Games and the list goes on and on. Everything is so easy to find as well. Each of the aisles is in collections, with specialty stuff in bins and buckets along the sides.

I shopped around and found some things for my son for Christmas. I found a plush animal dinosaur that makes noise for my nephew Kylan, he’s only two and is going to love it!  I found some Playmobil stuff which is priced excellently. In fact most of the Mastermind Toys stuff is priced within budget. I also managed to find some stuff for my son’s girlfriend.

Customers to the far right were visiting for the first time and super happy!

The girls in the upper right-hand picture were first-time customers. They were happily waiting for their purchases to get wrapped as I was. I asked them why they picked Mastermind Toys and they said they came to the store looking for kinetic sand, something that is unique and hard to find. She was so thrilled to be able to find it at Mastermind and get it wrapped up for Christmas!

If you spend more than $100 right now you get a gift card with your purchase. I am giving mine to my son for the holiday’s so he can go to the store later and buy something he really wants. Gift wrapping is also offered at Mastermind Toys (FREE OF CHARGE!) I don’t many stores doing that right now. And the girls are super fast at wrapping everything up for you.

WIN IT!
