The Smurf Micro Village Starter Set & The Smurfs 4 Figure Pack Assortment £1.49 @ Argos

The Smurf Micro Village Starter Set & The Smurfs 4 Figure Pack Assortment £1.49 @ Argos

Both reduced from £9.99 to the current selling price of £1.49. There looks like plenty of stock for the 4 pack of Smurfs, while the Micro Village is half and half around the postcodes I’ve tried.

You can reserve both by clicking the link below, just be aware Internet Explorer may have some issues with Argos links right now but they will work on Safari or alternative browsers. Just if anyone has issues.

Doesn’t seem that long ago I was frantically trying to complete the set from the McDonalds Happy Meal Smurfs but their appeal is longer lasting I think. Both of these sets have been steadily reduced but this is the lowest price we’ve had for both so far.

The figure sets include Sets include Clumsy, Chef, Papa and Smurfette and they have 5 points of articulation, measuring 2.75 inches in height.

The Micro Village, that one includes 4 play pack pieces and includes a figure too. Each piece interlocks to scale city outwards.

I think these are a cracking buy for £1.49. Whether it’s for the gift drawer, your own fan or simply to put away until the next movie is released (we all know it will be!) and to avoid paying the inevitable price hike, reserve these now if you can.

The figures are available for home delivery, (starter set isn’t) but as always that will cost an extra £3.95.

Loom Bands, Where Will It All End?

by Karen McGinn in Misc on 11 July, 2014 at 1:29 pm

Loom Bands, Where Will It All End?

This time last year I hadn’t heard of loom bands and now, well now, I can do fishtails, bracelets and have even tackled some of the projects we have here on the blog like the Loom Band Summer Projects with my 7 year old.

I’m a fan for a few reasons, firstly they’re cheap and as a parent you’ll know it’s not often (ever?) kids are into something that is, plus it’s creative and lets them use their imaginations.

So yeah I like them. The initial board and coloured bands in this house were soon replaced by neon, glow in the dark and even scented bands, as the creations became even more weird and wonderful (my daughter not me honest) and we’re always on the lookout for new projects to tackle.

And then we stumbled on the Loom Band Dress. Yeah, you read it correctly, the loom band DRESS. Currently in news feeds and being tweeted across the nation, it’s sitting at £153, 921 on eBay right now with 4 days left of bidding to go. Now suddenly my home made multi coloured bracket doesn’t look quite as impressive as it did yesterday (Still have the marks on my fingers from making it too) NOTHING I show my daughter is ever going to compete now she’s been exposed to this.

And to be quite honest making that kind of cash, I’m not going to discourage her,  now where did I put that board?!

 

5 Things No-One Tells You About Giving Birth

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Features on 11 July, 2014 at 12:00 pm

5 Things No-One Tells You About Giving Birth

There’s really only one thing you need to know about preparing yourself for giving birth, and it’s that nothing on earth can ever truly prepare you for it.

You can arm yourself with a host of breathing techniques to help you cope with labour or practise Hypnobirthing until you’ve mastered the art of astral projection but the truth is that most of your birth prep will utterly dessert you in your hour (or hours and hours and hours…) of need.

No amount of mantras, panting or visualisation can overthrow the overwhelming urge to dig your nails into the palm of your partner’s hand and threaten to maim his manhood if he ever so much as ever looks at you with those come-to-bed eyes again.

Still, they say fore-warned is fore-armed, so here are five things no-one told us about giving birth, which might mean they come as less of a shock to you if you’ve yet to do the deed, or at least give you a laugh as you look back (eyes watering and knees-a-trembling) on your own first birth experience…

You WILL poo
It’s a simple fact of the mechanics of expelling a sizeable human from a small (albeit stretchy) orifice that your bowel has no option but to get dragged along to that particular party. As you’ll know if you’ve ever inadvertently peed your pants whilst laughing / sneezing / coughing, it is nigh-on impossible to push with all your might from your, um, ‘punany’ without also, alas, activating certain other muscles usually reserved for straining of a different kind. Never mind pooing myself during delivery, I was surprised I didn’t lose an eyeball in the process.

Indecorous as it might seem to take a dump on the delivery table against your will, poo is really the least of your worries at that point but the good news is that most midwives are adept at dealing with this issue delicately, and thus will have deftly whipped away the offending article before you so much as get a whiff of it.

The downside to that, however, is that when the post-birth high has finally worn off and you’re debriefing with your birthing partner over every detail of your delivery, you may not cope well with the dawning realisation that watching a face emerge from your lady bits isn’t the only strange new thing your other half will have witnessed that day. But if pooing during delivery is a cloud of sorts, then its silver lining is that having someone watch you crap yourself and still claim to find you beautiful afterwards is pretty damned marvellous.

Your baby might be ugly
At Playpennies Towers we’re all agreed that the whole swept-away-in-an-instant-bond-of-unbreakable-love thing is a total myth when you become a mother. You might be one of the lucky ones who feels overwhelmed with the warm fuzzies the moment she claps eyes on her progeny, but for most of us the sentiment that best sums that moment up is more like ‘Eeeeeuuuurrrrgggghhhhhh,’ swiftly followed by a compulsion to hand the baby to someone else while you have a nice cup of tea and cry silent tears of thankfulness that you survived the whole ordeal.

And aside from the fact that most newborns wear a startled facial expression that resembles a really angry bulldog chewing a wasp, the whole covered in blood and weird-smelling sticky stuff thing is pretty off-putting too.

Plus if the pushing part takes a while or requires certain kinds of intervention, your baby might well arrive sporting a cone-head, which can come as something of a shock. Of course none of this really matters in the great scheme of things, but I’m just saying that it’s totally normal to feel a tad squeamish by the sight of your brand new baby. You certainly don’t see *that* in the movies.

Afterpains hurt like hell
Sweet mercy, nothing upon God’s green earth could have prepared me for the soul-sapping, mind-bending agony of the afterpains that followed the delivery of my third baby, who popped out within minutes of our arrival at hospital. I wondered if my midwife had been making a cuppa shortly before delivering my baby and had inadvertently left her knitting, a teaspoon and a packet of chocolate Hob Nobs behind after my last internal exam, because I couldn’t believe anything could hurt THAT much and yet be so unproductive. Never mind pain relief in labour, it was afterwards that I needed the good drugs, and plenty of ‘em. Fortuately by that stage in the proceedings it’s totally acceptable to down several glasses of champagne in a bid to numb the blistering pain. I mean celebrate the joy of new life.

There’s a lot of blood
When I was expecting my first baby, a male friend commented that his wife’s delivery room looked as if someone had been beheaded following the birth of their first child. Suffice it to say that giving birth to a baby involves a lot more blood than you might expect, and it doesn’t really stop flowing for a good while after you give birth. I’m talking days and weeks, not hours, so no matter how many packets of maternity pads (otherwise known as unmentionables in my house) you’ve stashed up on, add another half dozen and you might just have the first few nights covered.

You might be too tired to care about the baby
After months of excitedly waiting to discover whether she was having a boy or a girl, one of our team admits to being so exhausted and overwhelmed after giving birth that she couldn’t really care less which it was. “I was too tired to ask, and had to be told,” she recalls.

So there you have it; the truth about labour. I hope it doesn’t give you nightmares or burst any bubbles but in a funny sort of way, accepting that nothing can truly prepare you for labour might be just about the best form of preparation there is.

Make Your Own Alien and Robot Masks £1.00 @ Early Learning Centre

by Nada in Deals on 11 July, 2014 at 10:25 am

Make Your Own Alien and Robot Masks £1.00 @ Early Learning Centre

Needing something to do with the kids that’s fun, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Early Learning Centre have these make your own mask sets for only £1. They were originally £5.

I love kits like this. The kids thoroughly enjoy them and so do I. They come with everything you need and this one doesn’t even require glue. All the pieces that need to stick are self-adhesive. Hurrah, no sticky mitts everywhere.

The set comes with pre-cut pieces of foam so everything is all prepped for getting straight to the mask making.  On the Early Learning Centre site they suggest it as an activity for a children’s party. I think that’s a super idea due to the price and non-messy nature of the set.

You can make robot and alien masks from the pieces included. Think of the fun the kids can have after they have customised their masks. I fancy picking up a few to put away as little extras to add to birthday presents.

Suitable from 3 years and above. Collect free from store or pay £2.95 to have them delivered to your home.

Disney Planes Tilt and Fly Remote Controlled Plane £11.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 11 July, 2014 at 10:06 am

Disney Planes Tilt and Fly Remote Controlled Plane £11.99 @ Argos

If your kids love Disney’s Planes then, head over to Argos now.  They have this remote controlled plane that was £39.99 for an amazing £11.99. That is a huge saving of £28!

First they were into Disney’s Cars in my house, now it’s Planes. I don’t mind though as I quite like it myself.  Dusty is a firm favourite with my son Ben. I think he would be over the moon if he got the chance to play with a remote controlled one.

Dusty the remote controlled Plane accelerates using a button and this is the best bit, you get to steer with your arms. As you press the button his propellers spin for added effect. This smart plane will sound out well known phrases from the popular Disney film. Now he doesn’t fly but, I do think that’s probably safer.

You will require batteries for this flying beauty, 2 x AAA and 4 x AA. This is suitable for 3 years and over.

Stock levels are good as I write this but, I wouldn’t hang around as I foresee this to fly out of Argos’ doors. See what I did there. Reserve and collect in store or have it delivered for £3.95.

It’s also worth mentioning that when you buy this you can get a Disney height chart for a tiny 49p.

A special thanks to Anna on Facebook.

Hedstrom Junior Trampoline £16.76 Delivered @ Amazon

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 11 July, 2014 at 9:12 am

Hedstrom Junior Trampoline £16.76 Delivered @ Amazon

The RRP on this one is £34.99 so at today’s selling price of £16.76, you’re saving 52%.

One for the younger kids this one. The guide on Amazon says from age three but my daughter had this model from a much younger age, around two I think and as long as tots are properly supervised, there’s no reason they can’t get bouncing earlier as far as I’m concerned.

And reviewers seems to think so too :

I don't usually write reviews but had to on this occasion. Purchased the product and was worried about the ease of assembly according to previous reviews where people had difficulty assembling the product, getting blisters etc!!! I built the trampoline one evening whilst my husband was at work, attached elastic cord and my two year old was happy bouncing away. This is a good value for money product. I am also 8 months pregnant and was able to easily assemble the trampoline. Don't understand the difficulty with assembly in previous reviews.

That seems to be the only issue here with the reviews, some found it difficult to assemble, not Louise at 8 months pregnant though! Judge for yourself if you think that would be a problem.

This one is still £32.99 at Argos online, so looks a great price from Amazon today if you’re looking for some outdoor toys for tots this summer.

Sparkle & Glitz 12" Kids' Bike £40 @ Tesco

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 10 July, 2014 at 10:04 pm

Sparkle & Glitz 12" Kids' Bike £40 @ TescoTesco have a Sparkle & Glitz 12" Kids' Bike on offer for £40. It's reduced from £60 and standard delivery is £3, or you can pick it up for free.

This Sparkle 'n' Glitz girls' bike is an eye catching, pretty pink bike covered in glitzy stickers with pink tassels on the handlebars.

While I'm normally the first to groan when things are labelled 'for girls' or 'for boys', this very pink bike will probably be more favoured by girls wishing to explore their surroundings.

The Sparkle 'n' Glitz bike comes with an ergonomically designed 12" steel frame and fork. The frame rests on 12" Mag wheels, and the bike is brought to a stop by font and rear caliper brakes.

This bike comes with mudguards to keep spray off the back, and a pretty chain guard keeps chain oil away from clothes. A white wicker basket at the front of the bike can be used to carry toys. A cushioned saddle makes this bike a comfortable ride for your child.

Stabilisers provide stability as your child is learning to master how to ride her bike. Other safety features include crash pads, brake wire end caps and the removal of sharp edges. This bike requires a little self-assembly.

Annabel Karmel Ice Lolly Moulds £2.69 @ Amazon *Back In Stock*

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 10 July, 2014 at 9:22 pm

Annabel Karmel Ice Lolly Moulds £2.69 @ Amazon *Back In Stock*These four-pack ice lolly moulds from Annabel Karmel went out of stock really quickly last time we told you about them, and they are back in stock now. Like last time, they are £2.69 on Amazon, but you have to spend more than £10 for free delivery. If you buy 4 sets of these, you'll have 16 ice lollies for £10.76. I have 20 of these in my freezer/drawer/washer, and they are absolutely the best lolly moulds for kids ever, in my opinion!

I reviewed these a few years ago and have since bought an extra four sets - last year when Amazon had this offer, actually - because they are perfectly toddler, baby or child sized. They make basically two large tablespoons worth of anything - yoghurt, smoothie, juice, water, coffee! into a lolly, which means less wastage if little ones don't want to eat the whole thing, or if bigger ones want more than one, it's totally okay.

With 16 - 20 moulds, I normally fill them up once a week and that works out well for us.

These are brilliant for soothing teething gums, or for treats. They are BPA free and dishwasher safe. I highly recommend them!

Celebaby: Eva Mendes Pregnant With Ryan Gosling's Baby

Celebaby: Eva Mendes Pregnant With Ryan Gosling's Baby

Image credit: Twitter/EvaMendes

So apparently Eva Mendes is seven months pregnant with Ran Gosling's baby.

We haven't yet been able to verify this as Ryan's not returning our calls right now (pfft!) but OK! magazine reports:

'Women of the world who dream of having Ryan Gosling‘s baby: Eva Mendes has beat you to the punch! The actress is seven months pregnant with Ryan, and she couldn’t be happier. “She’s been ready for motherhood for a while now,” an insider tells OK!, “and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her!"'

Er, I'm not sure it's grammatically correct to say that Eva is pregnant 'with Ryan' but... moving swiftly on...

The couple reportedly became an item 2011 after meeting on the set of The Place Beyond the Pines.

Something pretty weird seems to be going on, though, because it was only a few weeks ago that a fake Facebook account was set up to hoax his fans with a story about him becoming a Dad.

US Weekly reported at the time:

"As if the women of the world needed another reason to swoon over Ryan Gosling! On Saturday, June 14, a fake Facebook page, claiming to be the Only God Forgives actor’s official site posted a tall tale that accompanied a picture of him holding a baby. “This father's day, I've decided to tell the story of how I became a father,” the post began. “This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I'd always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything. 1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love.”

Hmm.

Anyway, if you need a right good chuckle to cheer you up after the news that Ryan may no longer be available, check out the world's reactions on Twitter. If you thought the Brazillian football fans were a little upset the other night, then let's just say you ain't seen nothin' yet...

Chad Valley Family Swim Centre Inflatable Paddling Pool £14.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 10 July, 2014 at 1:01 pm

Chad Valley Family Swim Centre Inflatable Paddling Pool £14.99 @ Argos

The sun is out so that means it’s that time to get the paddling pool out. If you haven’t got one yet then Argos have this beauty for £14.99.

This one is huge and meant for all of the family. Playpennies Karen has just snapped one up so she can bask in it on this lovely day. I will be opting out until they invent one that is heated and when I lose 5 stone.

I would highly recommend a pump of some variety as you would need a lot of air to fill this large pool. It has special valves that make this deflate with ease.  On the Argos site it lists approximate times of 13 minutes to inflate and 23 minutes to fill.

The extra wide side walls make it not only comfortable to sit in for an adult but prevents your garden getting flooded every two minutes as the kids splash about. It takes a mammoth 982 litres of water.

It includes a repair kit for any punctures that may occur.  It states two age advisories on the Argos website for this item but they are both different. As always with leisure items of this nature, children of all ages would require supervision. Argos suggest this is not for use under 3 and for ages 6 and above.

Reserve and collect for free from your local Argos or get it delivered for £3.95.

Pink Lining Yummy Mummy Changing Bag £50 Delivered @ Amazon

Pink Lining Yummy Mummy Changing Bag £50 Delivered @ Amazon

I am not going to lie to you, I must have one of these. Do I need one? No, but I most certainly lust after one. I will of course be sensible, and use the boring one that came with my travel system. You know, the one that doesn’t tell the whole world that I am in that elite group of yummy mummies.

We all know that these are normally a pricey £79. Well, what if I told you Amazon are selling these for £50 delivered? A cool saving of £19. These pop up from time to time on selling pages on FB and they go for not much less than the Amazon price.

These have been very popular for as long as I can remember. I see them a lot at baby/toddler groups and I must admit I am jealous. I want one, I want one, I WANT ONE!

It has a wide adjustable and detachable strap, two elasticated side pockets (where you will stuff receipts and the like in), a front pocket, padded changing mat, a wet bag, a pocket for your mobile, mirror and pen holder and two insulated bottle pockets.

The most important bit of course is the fact it has the words yummy mummy embroidered over the front. It’s made of 100% canvas which gives it a cool, trendy kind of look.

Chad Valley Plastic Fantasy Castle Playset £7.99 @ Argos

Chad Valley Plastic Fantasy Castle Playset £7.99 @ Argos

Be quick! I reckon this is going to sell out at some speed. Argos have the Chad Valley Plastic Fantasy castle playset for £7.99. With an original selling price of £19.99 this really is a good deal.

Once little girls get to the age where they are obsessed with princesses, unicorns and all things pink, it’s hard not to nurture that. When I was young I loved fairy tales, and possessed lots of Princessy things. Of course you hit 21 and realise that Prince Charming is actually nothing more than wishful thinking.

This castle is big and bright with its girly colours. Suitable for age three years and above. This castle could provide fun for many years. Providing it lasts that long, and your daughter doesn’t mutilate everything with felt tip like my wee ones do.

It comes with lots of accessories to play with inside the castle. A horse and carriage, a Prince and a Princess and it includes a rather grand four poster bed.

This is available to reserve and collect in store. You may be able to get it delivered for £3.95 depending on your postcode.

Transformers Prime Voyager Beast Hunter Predaking Figure £11.49 Was £22.99 @ Argos

Transformers Prime Voyager Beast Hunter Predaking Figure £11.49 Was £22.99 @ Argos

I loathe Transformers, but my kids, alas, never seem to tire of them. If that sounds like your house too, then check out the Transformers Prime Voyager Beast Hunter Predaking figure because it's half price at Argos right now, reduced from £22.99 to just £11.49.

It pains me to say that I've just spent considerably more on this toy - it's currently £17.99 at Amazon which is still more than the Argos price with delivery included, and the next best price I could find was £23.00. So you should definitely snap it up from Argos if you're tempted by this badass Beast Hunter.

It does require two AA batteries though, so don't forget to pop those in your basket, too.

Delivery from Argos is £3.95 or you can use the free Click & Collect service and just pick it up from your nearest branch of Argos.

Apparently Predaking is the leader of the Predakons and the first ever Cybertronian who can change from robot mode into a full-size dragon. Bet that comes in handy.

The market is W50 x D36 x H61 cm so won't take up too much room, and it will require 2x AA batteries, so pick those up in the meantime, as they don't come included. Oh, and it requires a little assembly too.

Little ones that love role play are sure to love this set.
