A Manchester school boy was excluded from his school's World Book Day event today because of his costume choice: he came as Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey.

The school told Liam Scholes, 11, that his outfit was 'offensive' and asked him to change.

£2.99 Specials On Children's Clothing @ H&M

H&M have brought out those special £2.99 items again. Be quick though as these tend to sell out very quickly.  There are items for both boys and girls to choose from and there are a variety of designs to pick from too. Normally you are limited to two £2.99 special purchases, but you can buy say a dress and a t-shirt, times two.

The Long Sleeved T-Shirt* comes in a choice of four designs and are for boys. They are made of 60% Cotton 40% Polyester and can be machine washed. These are ideal for everyday wear. These ones* are also included.

T-Shirt with Print* comes in a choice of four colours and is available in sizes 1 and a half to 10 years. The green one reads "Master of Mischief" which is certainly apt for my boys.

For the girls, the Jersey Top with Print* and the very pretty Jersey Dress* which comes in four different colours. The dresses are an absolute steal and these will sell out. With the warmer weather on it's way you can save £££'s by buying them now.

Delivery costs £3.90 and there's currently no option to collect from H&M stores.

Parents Create Bucket List For Terminally Ill Son

Parents Create Bucket List For Terminally Ill Son

Don't read this if you don't want to end up sobbing. Actually, forget that. Read this, sob anyway, and then donate some cash.

According to the Telegraph, the parents of a terminally ill boy, who is just 20 months old, have created a 'bucket list' of 16 things for their son to experience before he dies.

The paper reports:

Zach Parnaby, aged 20 months, appeared to have been born a healthy baby, but was diagnosed with the illness that had been unwittingly carried by his parents just after Christmas. 

Now the medical condition known as Krabbe Luekodystrophy, a terminal disease which affects one in 100,000 people, will cause Zach to gradually lose the ability to walk, talk, see or hear. His doctors say he might not live beyond his fourth birthday. 

On Zach's bucket list are: swim in the sea, ride a bike and meet Mickey Mouse. Top of the list?  Find a cure for Krabbes disease.

Zach's parents, Lindsey and Ben, have set up a Go Fund Me page in their son's name to help finance his bucket list.

What else is there to say except, if you wish, you can lend your support here.

Save Up To Half Price On Mini Club Clothing @ Boots

Boots have an offer on at the moment on their Mini Club baby and children's clothing range, where they have reduced many lines by to to half price. With clothing starting from as little as £1.87 there are some great bargains.

The cheapest item is a Girl's Long Sleeved T-Shirt* for £1.87, and it;s available in all sizes from 6 months to 6 years. There are some beautiful girl's tunics for £3 each, boys long sleeved printed tees for £3, and packs of 2 baby tees for £4.

Although there are only 80 different styles in this promotion, availability of sizes looks really good on all that I have looked at, so it's not a case of this being the lingering sale bits (that's in the clearance section*!).

Boots seem to have tweaked their delivery prices again, and now it will cost you from £3.50 for home delivery, it's free when you spend over £45, and these Mini Club clothing items can be collected from stores for FREE.

25% Off Fragrance Of The Month @ Yankee Candles

25% Off Fragrance Of The Month @ Yankee Candles

We know Yankee Candles are a firm favourite with PlayPennies readers, and although the sale has finished there is still the 25% off the Fragrance Of The Month offer.

The fragrances with 25% off for March are Lovely Kiku and White Gardenia, both sweet floral fragrances that would make lovely Mother's Day gifts.

With these discounts the prices work out at £14.99 for the Large Jar, £12.75 for the Medium Jar, and £5.99 for the Small Jar Candle. The tea lights, wax melts and votives also have 25% off both of these fragrances. Postage and packing starts from just 99p.

Incidentally, the Fragrance Of The Month seems to be different in stores from online, and I had assumed it would be the same everywhere. In Beales today it was Strawberry Buttercream and Black Coconut, and I thought it was those I would be writing about this afternoon! (The Black Coconut is absolutely wonderful, whilst the Strawberry Buttercream is too sweet even for me!)

CODE STACK: 25% Off Habitat PLUS Extra 20% Off When You Spend Over £25 in The Habitat Shop @ Argos

Yesterday Nada wrote about the 25% off Habitat offer that is on today. What we've just been told is that if the habitat furniture you want is sold by Argos in their own Habitat Shop online, then the code HOME20 gives you a further 20% off when you spend £25, and that's on top of the other reductions.

Argos sell 700 items from Habitat, and the 25% off those is for today only, with the discount already applied to the prices. The voucher code working on top of that offer is going to give some amazing discounts on some gorgeous furniture and accessories. We've been told that if you are collecting in store then you can quote the code at the till for the discount too.

You need to be quick with this one though, as although the HOME20 code has a while to run, the Habitat offer finishes at midnight.

20% Off Everything, Including Existing Offers (with code) @ Thorntons online

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 5 March, 2015 at 1:59 pm

20% Off Everything, Including Existing Offers (with code) @ Thorntons online

If you haven't sorted out Mother's Day gifts yet (neither have I) then this discount code from Thorntons could work out really handy. You get 20% off everything at Thorntons online when you enter the code MDAY20 at the basket, and it works on items that are already reduced as well! 

This means that if you were to order one of the Mother's Day Gift Collections, like The World's Best Mum* gift, it is reduced from £30, down to £20, and the code takes off a further 20% meaning it's only £16! That's just about half price! And it even comes gift wrapped for free as well! There are several Mother's day Gifts that are reduced in this way, and getting those works out at the best value, but the code should work on everything.

Click here to shop @ Thorntons and use the code MDAY20*

  • Discount: 20% off everything
  • Expires: 08/03/15
  • Code: MDAY20*

Delivery charges will add another £3.95 if you are spending less than £30, but will cost only £1 when you spend over £30. If you're like me you'll be in charge of buying for both Mums (and probably for myself as well), so it would be really easy to hit that £30 for the cheap delivery.

The code also works on personalised gifts, so if you want to get any of those then you're getting an extra special chocolatey pressie to brighten Mum's day.

Constructive Eating Fairy Garden Set £5.99 Delivered @ eBay/ideadealshop

by karenm in Deals on 5 March, 2015 at 11:57 am

Constructive Eating Fairy Garden Set £5.99 Delivered @ eBay/ideadealshop

I love the Constructive Eating Sets for kids and this Fairy Garden Set is a bit of a bargain I think at £5.99 with free delivery. (You can also click and collect free at your local Argos if you’d prefer that but I’d opt for the home delivery personally)

Remember we posted the Digger Constructive Eating Set over at Amazon?* Well, this is the version aimed at girls I guess. Personally though if I had a son who wanted this or a daughter who wanted the digger, it wouldn’t be an issue. At £5.99 delivered though, this is around a third of the price.

While some people may not believe in children “playing” with their food, how many of us can honestly say we’ve never made Choo-Choo noises? Personally I think anything that works and encourages little ones to feed themselves and make mealtimes an enjoyable experience is to be encouraged.

Each utensil in this set is based on a tool used in the garden and perched on each handle is a garden fairy. Each fairy has been given a name and personality. The garden rake fork, garden shovel spoon and garden hoe pusher “are designed with function and play in mind.”

At £5.99 with free delivery I think little ones would love these, what do you think?

Special Mother's Day Biscuits With FREE Delivery (Code Req) @ Biscuiteers

Special Mother's Day Biscuits With FREE Delivery (Code Req) @ Biscuiteers

Chocolates are great as a gift for Mother's Day but they are a bit predictable. I am sure when I say that biscuits are a fab alternative that I speak for a lot of mothers. Biscuiteers make biscuits with a difference. Just look at the picture above, from a biscuit Mother's Day card to a box of biscuit Make-up, they do some really fun designs. Prices start at £6 delivered when you use the promo code UNWRAPLOVE at the checkout.

I would be over the moon if I received a present from Biscuiteers for Mother's Day. They are quirky, edible and very, very different.

Here's my favourite's from the Mother's Day selection: The I LOVE MUM Biscuit Card* is just £9 delivered with code, Mother's Day Flowers Biscuit Tin* just £30 delivered, the Wonderwoman Biscuit* would be apt for most of us at £9.95 delivered.

For just £6 you can get the No1 Mum Jolly Ginger* delivered. I am make-up daft to the point that it's ridiculous so I am hoping and praying that I get the Make-up Case Giant Biscuit Card*. It's just £20 delivered although I am not sure I could eat it as it's just too darn pretty.

Habitat Tam Tam Plastic Stool £11.25 Delivered @ eBay/Argos Outlet

Habitat Tam Tam Plastic Stool £11.25 Delivered @ eBay/Argos Outlet

We have these in our home.... the Habitat Tam Tam Plastic Stool. It's lightweight but not flimsy and the kids use them as bongos. Get yours from Argos Outlet at eBay. They are just £11.25 with FREE delivery and are a fun piece of furniture for any room in the house but especially children's bedrooms.

There are other colours available are Red*, Pink*, Yellow* and White*.

I am not the only one to have these, my friend bought these for at her breakfast bar. We use ours, or rather our boys do for playing on their XBox. They are just ideal for that purpose. Another way of using them is for sitting outside one the better weather is here.

These are full size stools and are really not suitable for little children. Mine are aged six and nine years old, they use them fine. They like that they can store Lego inside them too. These can be used as stackable storage when taken apart.

Remember delivery is completely FREE or you can collect from your local Argos should this be more convenient.

HUGE Savings On Selected Children's Clothes: Items From £1.05 @ Monsoon

For me Monsoon is one of my favourite places to get clothes for the kids. The quality is super but I will never pay full price. If you didn't already know, Monsoon have an outlet section on their site containing 35 pages of Children's Clothing that is reduced to clear. Sizes are limited on certain styles but there are so many bargains to choose from and they start from just £1.05.

So what can you get for just £1.05? The Baby Embroidered Owl Bando* was £3.50 and is now £1.05. There's lots of nice accessories for little girls reduced and are a nice addition to a big present.

I won't lie to you, the boys selection is pretty pants, but it's still worth a swift look as you may get lucky. I like this Grandad Collar Checked Shirt* reduced from £14 to just £4.20. If you have a wedding this year then there's a couple of formal wear items in there too.

The girls' selection is amazing with it's glitzy dresses and pretty outfits. This Baby Roseberry Bloom Woven Set* is a bargain at only £11. It has been £22 originally.

Collect your order from a Monsoon store for FREE or pay £3.95 for delivery.

Plum Camden Court Wooden Dolls House with Accessories £25.67 @ Tesco Direct

Wow, wow and WOW! This Plum Camden Court Wooden Dolls House WITH Accessories is reduced from £60 to just £25.67 at Tesco Direct. Look at the size of it.... it's HUGE! Wooden dolls houses are highly sought after at the right price, so I can see this one selling out fairly quickly. Plus as always when buying from Tesco Direct you will accrue points for your Clubcard.

The Plum Camden Court Wooden Dolls House with Accessories stands 61cm tall. With two storeys and seven accessories it's easy to see the where the original £60 price tag came from.

This is what you get: a Reception Desk and Table, Vet figurine, Wooden animal, Studio flat furniture, a Wooden bed, a Sofa and a Wardrobe with working doors.

It does require some assembly but I can't imagine it being to complex. You should be able to pass this down the siblings as it's made from responsibly sourced timber and looks to be sturdy.

You can reserve and collect the Plum Camden Court Wooden Dolls House with Accessories for FREE or pay £3 to have it delivered.

Dora the Explorer Dive & Swim Mermaid Doll £10 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 5 March, 2015 at 8:56 am

Dora the Explorer Dive & Swim Mermaid Doll £10 Delivered @ Amazon

The Dora the Explorer Dive and Swim Mermaid Doll is more than just a figure, plop her in the bath and she can swim. She will cost you £19.99 when bought from Argos or get her for just £10 from Amazon. Plus FREE delivery as she hits that ten pound mark. This would make a great birthday present for a little one or give it at a party and make yourself look very generous indeed.

The Dora the Explorer Dive and Swim Mermaid Doll is can dive from the side of the bath into the water. She then flips onto her back and starts swimming the back stroke. Dolls never did this when I was a nipper. Push her tail against the bath and she will kick start her swim.

That's quite a nifty feature for a doll that costs £10. My boys were Dora daft as tots but I was never too keen on her, however, Swiper was funny. This Dora doll also comes with a brush. She is suitable for children aged three years old or above.

I am sure whoever you have in mind for this doll will love it, as you will the price.

Summer Infant Grow With Me Bed Rail £17.99 @ Amazon/Argos

The Summer Infant Grow with Me Bed Rail is reduced at Argos from £24.99 to just £17.99. It seems to be £24.99 everywhere else that I have seen, for example Argos. Amazon have kindly price matched Argos' £17.99 price and have thrown in FREE delivery too, as it's over £10.

The stock levels for the Summer Infant Grow with Me Bed Rail at Argos aren't the best due to this great price, so if there are none in stock near you then just buy it from Amazon where you will get it delivered for FREE.

This bed rail will fit on most kinds of beds, including slatted base ones and divan. It can be used for a cot bed or a full size single bed. We have these for our two cabin beds to prevent any nasty accidents of rolling out of bed at that height.

It folds down when attached to the bed meaning it's easy to get your child out of bed and to change bedding/make the bed.

You can either reserve and collect the Summer Infant Bed Rail for FREE from Argos or get it delivered for FREE from Amazon.

25% Off Everything Until Midnight Thursday 5th March (With Code)@ Habitat

Bored of your house? Well now is the time for a bit of a revamp. Trendy homeware retailer Habitat have 25% off EVERYTHING on their site (apart from Gift Cards). You have until tomorrow night (midnight) to grab your goodies. Even items with reductions already are included so grab those bargains whilst you can. To get the discount, choose you items, add them to basket, head to checkout and enter promo code HAB25 and a 25% discount will be applied.

Cushions, I am a tad obsessed with them. They can really make a room, my other half would disagree with this statement. Put them on your bed for that hotel look or pop some on your sofa to make your living room look more homely. Use the promo code and you can get a cushion for as little as £3.75. For example this Amure Taupe one* was £10 use code and it's only £3.75.

There's something quite therapeutic about accessorising your home, you might as well treat yourself to that new vase or tealight holder with 25% off. It's the perfect excuse. You will find Accessories, here*.

One thing I will say is that their range of children's bedroom items is poor but who says the kids need new stuff all the time?

Delivery costs £4.95 on orders under £50, those over are delivered FREE.

Your new, discounted price will automatically be applied.

Amazon will be adding new vouchers regularly, they say, so it's worth keeping an eye out for products you regularly buy anyway.

The vouchers available right now include discounts on laundry, washing up and condoms - useful things every family needs ;)
