This is going to sound like a sponsored post, but it’s not. I work for free, people! I just love Mastermind Toys.
I’ve shopped on their website for a few years, so I was really excited when Mastermind opened a store in Calgary last year. This is a great place to buy birthday gifts, obviously, but it’s also an awesome place to shop for loot bag stuff.
I brought my camera so I could show you what I’m talking about.
Check it out – near the tills, they have shelves and shelves of little toys! I love this kind of thing for loot bags – the play value is WAY higher than stuff from the dollar store.
It doesn’t matter what your party theme is – every kid will be happy about a Whoopee cushion in their loot bag.
This sign is accurate – stickers ARE fun.
Directly beside the tills, there is even MORE stuff that would be perfect for loot bags. My daughter loves the wands on the bottom right – they are filled with sparkles that float around as you move them. These are awesome for almost any girl party. Also, astronaut ice cream!
The staff members at this store are also really nice. Case in point: a manager caught me taking these photos of their stuff. Stores are often touchy about this, so I now sneak around like a criminal taking photos on the sly. I do it all for YOU, Readers. Anyhow, a manager spotted me with my camera, and like any good spy, I instantly looked super guilty. But he just smiled and said, “Hey – good idea!” Whew!
Full Disclosure: As usual, I wrote this out of the goodness of my heart, and was not compensated in any way.
