Fisher Price Stroll Along Baby Walker £12.49 @ Argos

Fisher Price Stroll Along Baby Walker £12.49 @ Argos

The Fisher Price Stroll Along Baby Walker is one of the most adorable walkers on the market. Argos have reduced this from £24.99 to just £12.49. I like the fact that this is two toys rolled into one - a toy stroller and a baby walker. It's a great way of encouraging your little one to move those feet, but with the security of holding onto something.

The Fisher Price Stroll Along doesn't come with a doll but that means you can use the one you have in the house or buy a cheap one. It stands on four chunky wheels that should provide balance and stability and prevent any nasty tipping. They will also glide along to help your little one move.

On the handle is a wriggly bear that will play music when pressed. There are also spinners, a roller bar and a flipbook for baby to play with. It just looks like great fun and I love the way Fisher Price has turned a boring walker into such a cool toy.

Reserve and Collect the Fisher Price Stroll Along Baby Walker from an Argos near you for FREE or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Minnie Mouse Wagon £4.49 @ Argos

Minnie Mouse Wagon £4.49 @ Argos

If you have followed PlayPennies for a good while, then you might have seen these Toy Wagons featured before. We haven't seen this Minnie Mouse one reduced this low for about a year, so imagine our glee when we found it for just £4.49.  Argos were selling it for £9.99, so it's now less than half price. These can prove very popular, especially at this time of year.

The Minnie Mouse Wagon is ideal for the beach. Seriously, when you have to walk a fair distance from the car to the sand, you need one of these wagons. Your little one will actually enjoy pulling their belongings and you won't have to carry a million and one things.

They are also great for in the house. My kids like to bring ALL of their toys into the living room to play and that's fine but I make them tidy them up again or else my house would resemble Steptoe's Yard. Again, they don't mind doing it if it means piling it all into the wagon and pulling it along to their rooms.

You can reserve and collect the Minnie Mouse Wagon for FREE from an Argos near you, but it looks like it's unavailable for home delivery.

Fisher Price Link-A-Doos Kick & Play Piano £12.49 @ Smyths

Not wanting to buy clothes for a New Baby gift? Why not pick something that will last little one a good while? This Fisher Price Link-A-Doos Kick and Play Piano fits the bill. Plus it's very affordable at the moment, reduced from £24.99 to just £12.49 at Smyths Toy Store.

We had one of these Fisher Price Link-A-Doo Kick and Play Pianos or something very similar with my eldest son and he played with as soon as his legs were kicking about.

You can choose to tie it to baby's cot, or put of the floor. It depends what age they are I guess and the beauty of this interactive toy is that the three modes of play enable it to be used even as baby grows.

Mode number one is for newborns: Fun with animal music and twinkling lights. Number two is for infants: When baby kicks animal sounds and lights are activated. Number three is best for toddlers: Put it on the floor and your little one can press the keys to hear piano.

You can Collect from a Smyths store for FREE or pay £2.99 for home delivery.

 2 Free Legoland Tickets With Tokens From 'The Sun' From May 30th

If you are thinking of a family trip to Legoland Windsor this summer then you are probably already aware of how expensive it can be. To help out with the costs of the entrance fees you can grab two free tickets with The Sun starting on May 30th.

If you are a Sun Perks member then you don't have to buy any papers or collect tokens at all, you just book online from 7th May and pay only a £1.50 P&P fee for your tickets.

If you aren't a Sun Perks member then you will need to collect tokens from the paper starting next week on May 30th until June 7th. You need 10 tokens in all, and then you need to pay your £1.50 postage for the tickets on top of the price of the papers. Even including the papers and postage this is a massive saving on Legoland tickets - even as much as £96 for the two!

The tickets are first come first served, and will be for one specific date only, and are non transferable. All the details about the free tickets and how to claim then is on the link above.

When you get your tickets check out our guide "How To Survive A Family Day Trip" for handy tips. Have fun!

Highgate Mums On Twitter Just Spared Me Bathtime Duty

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 24 May, 2015 at 8:15 pm

Highgate Mums On Twitter Just Spared Me Bathtime Duty

Need a giggle? Then head straight over to Twitter and check out @HighgateMums - be warned, though, I've just lost an hour. Time well spent though - husband thought I was 'working' so it got me out of managing bath-time.

The premise is preposterously simple. (I'm trying to get down the with Highgate massive, here, so forgive the long words, darlings.) Basically 'normal' mums share things they've overheard North London mums actually say. It's nearly as good as when Waitrose asked customers to tweet their reasons for shopping at Waitrose, and people shared things like this:

"I shop at Waitrose because, darling, Harrods is just too much of a trek mid-week."

We discovered this thanks to The Poke - so I have them to thank for narrowly escaping bath-time, and one of my fave tweets mentioned is:

"Mum, can you not put so much algae in my smoothie? It tastes of Japan."

Can't. Stop. Laughing.

It's like first world problems AND THEN SOME. I practically used to be one myself, soI feel I'm allowed to laugh. (Ok, I was more an impoverished Kentish Town mum but never mind. Details, people, details.)

So - share your favourite overheard Mum-ism over on our Facebook page...

Disney Movie Collection Books £3 each with Free Delivery (and in the Clubcard Boost) @ Tesco Direct

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 8:10 pm

Disney Movie Collection Books £3 each with Free Delivery (and in the Clubcard Boost) @ Tesco Direct

The new Disney Movie Collection books are a big hit, and there are a few stores that have them on a 2 for £10 offer so that the children can build up their collection... BUT we have been waiting and watching and Tesco have trumped all the other stores with this offer! They have the Disney Movie Collection Books at £3 each with free delivery! That can't be beaten right now.

If you have any Clubcard Points to double up with the Clubcard Boost then each book will cost you just £1.50 worth of points!

Online at Tesco Direct they are currently listing 14 of the Disney Movie Collection titles, and all are at the £3 price. It doesn't matter how many or how few you order, the free delivery applies to all books, although you can always use the free click and collect if that is more convenient for you than waiting in for a parcel.

If you are looking to collect all of the books, or Tesco doesn't have the ones that you want, then the next cheapest way is to get the remaining ones at 2 for £10 from Amazon*, as they do free delivery with a £10 spend on books.

It seems that a lot of children are starting to collect these story books, mostly young girls it has to be said, but at £3 each it's a cheap gift for a birthday if you can find out which ones to get. If in doubt start off with Frozen probably!

The Tesco special offer price of £3 doesn't have an end date specified online, but the Amazon 2 for £10 ends on 30th May.

Out Shopping Tomorrow? Check Your Local Stores For These Bargains!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 7:26 pm

 Out Shopping Tomorrow? Check Your Local Stores For These Bargains!

There have been some amazing bargains found in stores this week that we thought you really ought to know about. They are in store only, so you can't get these online, but it's definitely worth keeping an eye out for them when you're shopping.

The Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo seems to be getting sold off in some Tesco stores, and it has been found for £25! Yes, really! There have been some found in several stores including Burnley and Ayrshire, so if your local store is rejigging the baby department you might just get lucky!

Passing an Aldi? As the new Baby Event is starting next week it looks like the old baby stock is being sold off mega cheap. Someone managed to find a Philips Avent 2-in-1 Electric Steam Sterliser for just £6.49!

If you need a pick up after searching through Tesco and Aldi for those then see if you can find this in store offer at Lidl - 16 Piece Ferrero Rocher Boxes at £3.49 and BOGOF! You stand a better chance of finding this deal as it's been spotted in quite a few Lidl stores - let's hope they have some left near you.

We don't often tell you about in store only deals unless we know you stand a good chance of being able to get them, but if this means some if you manage to grab a Jumperoo for £25 then it's worth it. Good Luck everyone!

12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership £19.94 @ CDKeys with Facebook Like

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 5:51 pm

 12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership £19.94 @ CDKeys with Facebook Like

It's gone down again and now it's less than £20 for the first time! The XBox Gold Live Membership is always a good price at cdkeys, but this is now the lowest ever. They are selling a 12 Month XBox Live Gold Membership for £20.99, but when you 'Like' their Facebook page you will get an individual code generated that will give you an extra 5% off, taking the price down to only £19.94!  You just click at the top of their page where it says "Click here to get 5% off!", enter your email, and you get your discount code!

The membership is a digital download, so you get sent a code by email rather than a physical card in the post, and it's just about instant once you have purchased. When you enter the code on your XBox 360 or XBox One the 12 months subscription will add on top of whatever you have left of your old one, so you don't need to wait for your current subscription to expire to use this.

It really is a big saving, as if you bought this direct from XBox the 12 months membership should cost you £39.99, so this is half that price!

If you've read this far then I imagine you already know what the subscription gets you, but you can find all the information on the cdkeys link above.

 20% Off Selected Items PLUS £15 Off Your Next Purchase When You Spend £30 @ Mamas & Papas

Mamas & Papas have their 'Bank Holiday Treats' event on at the moment with 20% off selected items across many departments of the store.

There are big reductions of up to 60% off furniture sets this weekend if you are getting a nursery ready, and there are some lovely accessories as well to finish off the room.

There are some beautiful items of children's and baby-wear reduced, including lots for Christening and Occasion Wear*, as well as the super sweet Fifi Lapin* baby range.

You can click and collect for free from Mamas & Papas stores, except for large furniture items. Home delivery is a bit pricey at £4.95, but when you spend over £50 it's free.

These offers are just for the Bank Holiday Weekend, so they finish tomorrow night.

 Extra 10% Off Everything Including Sale @ Millets

If you like a bit of the outdoors life, or are planning some camping trips with the kids then this Bank Holiday Weekend you might want to take a look at Millets. They already have some great offers on, as well as a massive sale, but you can also get an extra 10% off everything with the voucher code SALE10.

Click here to shop @ Millets*

  • Discount: 10% off everything, including sale
  • Expires: Monday 25th May 2015
  • Code: SALE10

As usual I checked out the Sale first, and looking at the kids sale there are some fab prices. There are decent waterproof jackets from Peter Storm that were already half price, and now work out at just £9 each with this voucher code! I'm off to check I hadn't already bought summer waterproofs in earlier sales. There are accessories that work out at just 90p, tops from £2.25, t-shirts from £3.15, fleeces from £3.60, and waterproof jackets start at £6.75!

You don't have to use the 10% off code on the sale items, as it will work on anything at all on the site until the end of Bank Holiday Monday. You can click and collect for free of you have a Millets store nearby, or home delivery charges are from £2.99.

(EXPIRED) Lego Minifigures Series 13 (Add-On Item) 41p each @ Amazon!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 2:55 pm

(EXPIRED) Lego Minifigures Series 13 (Add-On Item) 41p each @ Amazon!

If you have anything sitting in your shopping basket at Amazon then you might want to add some of these quickly! The Lego Minifigures Series 13 are down to just 41p at Amazon!

The only thing is that the figures are being sold as an Add-On Item, meaning that they can only be sent with orders that total over £20. There is also a limit to 5 per order, but that's fairer if it stops people from stockpiling to sell them on I suppose.

The £20 total order you need for the Add-On Items to be sent included the price of the add-ons themselves, so if you're grabbing 5 of them (and why wouldn't you?) then that's £2.05, meaning you need to have other goods totalling £17.96 in your order. As you're spending over £20 delivery is free as well.

I had been faffing about not replacing our old carbon monoxide detector (I know, sorry) but now it's on the way, along with 5 Lego Minifigures for the price of 1!

Big thanks to MapleLeafs @ HUKD.
