Canada’s largest specialty toy retailer, Mastermind Toys have been busy doing their toy-buying homework to help parents get their kids back to school ready. From Backpacks, Bento Boxes and Boogie Boards, to Snack Packs, Scooters and Flash Cards, Mastermind’s list of cool school tools will prepare us and our children ease into the back to school mode. All items are available at Mastermind’s 31 locations and www.mastermindtoys.com.
Bixbee backpacks, lunch bags and duffle bags for children over 3 years are perfectly sized for our little ones. These backpacks feature a unique horizontal design to keep supplies within easy reach. The cover flap pocket opens to a main compartment with plenty of space for a folder, book or sweater. Two interior slip pockets hold small necessities like pencils and crayons. Even when packed to the brim, this backpack rests comfortably on children's shoulders because of the contoured shoulder straps with cushy padding. I like that the bag has a zip closure for the main compartment, as well as a Velcro closure.
Mastermind also has matching lunch and duffle bags in the same print as the backpack. My son likes the blue shark print design; the Bixbee backpacks, lunch bags and duffle bags are also available in Dino Camo, Sassy Spots Leopard Print and Butterfly Garden designs. With every backpack purchase, Bixbee will donate a schoolbag with supplies to a child in need.
We like the look of these Ninja Pencils that come in a set of 12 No. 2 graphite pencils. The eraser and the inside of the pencil when sharpened are black. Even when pressed the pencil point does not break as fast. My children are excited to start attacking words and drawings with these Ninja Pencils.
My children being LEGO® enthusiasts really like this 4 pack of erasers, which resembles LEGO® Bricks. These erasers are perfect as a loot bag item for LEGO® themed parties or a pleasant surprise for an eraser collector and LEGO® fan. Since the packaging does not mention I am not sure if these erasers are PVC free. Each LEGO® brick eraser measures approximately 1.25" long x 0.75" wide x 0.25" high.
