Holiday Gift Guide: MindWare a great place for educational toys





Are you looking for a great brain stimulating toy for a child on your holiday gift list this year? I would like to introduce you to this wonderful company Mindware. There are so many items I love from the site, here are a few of my favorites:

 Qwirkle

 The Build-Your-Own Go-Kart Kit


 ReCon Rover with Obstacle Course


 My daughter was very fortunate to be able to review Magnetic Mosaico
 It's a brilliant way to get kids interested in the artistry of mosaics. Select a pattern card for the magnetic board and place the soft, magnetic shapes where they belong. Chunky pieces are easy to handle and come in a vibrant color palette. Want to fly solo? Draw your own pattern on the magnetic white board. Magnetic Mosaico includes 580 pieces, 10 pattern cards, magnetic dry erase board with stand and a travel case. Made in Italy.

Recommended Ages: Ages 5 and up
My daughter loves to build things she’s like a junior architect, designer. She likes to build and design and decorate, so I knew the Magnetic Mosaico from Mindware would be great for her. A leaning toy is always a great thing, to have fun while using and stimulating your brain, that is a plus.


 My little girl just loves to create and have fun. But she can get a bit messy.. she is getting into the bad habit of not putting her toys away. I seem to always be correcting her and telling her to clean up. I was a little scared with her getting the Magnetic Mosaico, all those little pieces! 580? I did not want 580 pieces all over the house. But I am happy say she is bign very grown up with this set, she takes care of it each time she uses it, and makes sure all the prices are there and accounted for an put away correctly. I love that she is taking such good care of this set, it goes to show how much she loves it. The Magnetic Mosaico retails for $39.95.

I would recommend he Magnetic Mosaico for kits boys and girls ages 5 -10 they will love playing with the sets and you will love that they are unplugged for a while, no tv and no video games for a bit is wonderful! With the holidays right around the corner, why not pick up a great toy from MindWare for that special person on your holiday list this year? You will get a quality educational toy that they will love.  There will surely be something from the site that, that special someone on your holiday gift list will love! And you will love that that special someone will be using their imagination and making their own fun!
