It's already October, and that means Santa and his elves are already hard and work on this year's Christmas presents. But if you want to give them a hand, there's a sale you should probably see at Mastermind Toys.
For a limited time, things they consider "imaginative play" items are 20% off! Basically, this refers to toys and games that spark kids' creativity and let them role-play in different worlds – and it means select items from Playmobil, Calico Critters and the BRIO Railway collection are marked down.
The included Playmobil and Calico Critters sets are on sale until Oct. 13, while the different BRIO kits are 20% off until Oct. 27. However, if you've shopped at Mastermind Toys before, you know that things tend to sell out well before their sales end – so I'd try to act as quickly as you can!
One of the newest Playmobil sets, the Space Mission Rocket with Launch Site, is included and now priced at $71.99 from $89.99. Honestly, this is one of the coolest things I've seen from Playmobil in a while, and I'm betting this will be on a lot of wish lists this year. Maybe try to scoop one up before they sell out!
For your younger kids, this BRIO My First Railway Beginner Pack is a great introduction to model trains. It's now $51.99 – and when they're ready, they can graduate to something like the SmartTech Engine Railway Set. And if you really want to step up your train game, you need a BRIO Play Table (for $239.99 from $299.99).
And don't forget about those Calico Critters! We've seen them on sale just about everywhere lately, but I'll never complain about another store marking them down. At Mastermind Toys, you can pick up everything from individual figures to entire sets, like this Calico Critters Adventure Tree House.
But if you're just looking for one or two new characters, there are a few you should absolutely check out. One of my favourites comes in the Calico Critters Town Grand Piano Concert Set. Look at that little tux! And whatever you buy, remember that shipping is free when you spend at least $49.
