Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit £7.46 @ Amazon

Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit £7.46 @ Amazon

The Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit normally sells for around the £14.99 mark. That massive online retailer Amazon have slashed the price of this baby set to just £7.46. With weaning, little sets like this are handy. I always went down the plastic bowls and spoons route because you can bet your bottom dollar that baby will throw everything on the floor. It's bad enough cleaning your kitchen floor three times a day, having to replace all your crockery would be too much.

What's in the Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit? A First Sips Cup, two First Weaning Spoons, a Cool and Mash Bowl with Lid and Spoon and two Pop-up Weaning Pots. Basically everything you need to start off your weaning journey.

Each piece of equipment are dishwasher, microwave and steriliser safe which is a Godsend for time saving and hygiene. The Cup is non spill and has a soft spout for those little mouths with their soft gums.

To get FREE delivery from Amazon you must spend £10 or more. That means that you need to spend another £2.54 on something like these Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers*.

Children's Character Clothing From £1.95 @ LamaLoLi

Never heard of LamaLoli? Neither had I until the start of the year, but I am glad as I would have been skint a long time ago. What do they sell? Adult and children's clothing, mostly character themed items, at teeny tiny prices. Seriously, get all the Minnie and Mickey, Skylanders etc for Sports Direct prices. This site is exactly what all us money-conscious parents have been waiting for.

With clothing starting from just £1.95, you just gotta have look. If like me you have more kids than sense then you will enjoy the fact that you can clothe them for very little in the way of money.  Let's face it they grow out of them so quickly so why not grab the cheap stuff?

Like those Disney Mouses? Check out this Minnie Mouse Nightdress* for just £4.95 or this Mickey Mouse Hoody* for £8.95. Shortie Pyjamas are great for those warm, balmy nights in the Summer, here's some in Spider-Man* for £5.95 or Minnie Mouse* for £4.95.

Spend over £20 and get FREE delivery or if you aren't planning on forking out that much (with I highly doubt when you see all those bargains) then postage is £5.95 (ouch!).

Chad Valley Inflatable Car Ball Pit & Paddling Pool: £9.99 delivered @ Argos ebay

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 30 March, 2015 at 8:48 pm

 Chad Valley Inflatable Car Ball Pit & Paddling Pool: £9.99 delivered @ Argos ebay

This is new to the Argos ebay outlet, and it's a bit of a bargain I think. The Chad Valley Inflatable Car is a ball pit and paddling pool, and it's for sale at £9.99 with free delivery included.

The weather here has turned cold and wet so I'm thinking ball pit might be the first use this one will get, and use it as a pool when we get some sunshine and warmth, not the snow we got this morning. :(

I know for sure that my toddler would love playing in this, whether there were balls in it, water in it, or just himself sat there making beep beep noises and pretending to drive. You can't really go wrong for less than a tenner delivered can you?

FREE Easter Egg Hunt: Saturday 4th April @ Smyths Toys

FREE Easter Egg Hunt: Saturday 4th April @ Smyths Toys

This coming Saturday every Smyths Toys store in the country will be holding a FREE Easter Egg Hunt*!

Here's what they say will be happening:

The Easter Bunny has paid a visit to Smyths Toys Superstores nationwide with a whole bunch of yummy Easter Eggs up for grabs! Children are invited down to our branches nationwide from 10am-4pm* on Easter Saturday (April 4th) to complete the FREE Easter Egg Hunt with a whole bunch of delicious chocolatey treats up for grabs! Better be quick though as it’s only while stocks last and you’ll be hopping mad if you miss out!

Although the Easter Egg Hunt is due to be on between 10am and 4pm, it is while stocks last only, so if they get lots of children taking part there is the chance they may run out of chocolate eggs. It's only one egg per child who takes part though, so fingers crossed they have enough.

Sounds like a nice bit of free fun, as long as the kids are happy to just get the free egg and don't expect you to take home the rest of the shop... although they do have some good deals on at Smyths at the moment. ;)

FREE Disney Easter Activity Printables @ Disney Family

So, it's raining, and the kids are getting bored already (mine's at school still!). How about a spot of egg decorating? No, not just spots and flowers - Disney eggs!

Disney Family have lots of different templates that are free to download so that you can print and cut out the pieces to decorate eggs to look like your favourite Disney characters. You can choose from Buzz Lightyear, Eeyore, Pluto, Mickey, The Cheshire Cat, Goofy, Toy Story Aliens, and lots more. My favourites are Kermit and Piglet - I just think they look the most effective, but they are all really fab for Disney fans.

If egg decorating is not your thing, then there are colouring sheets, egg wrappers, cards, gift boxes, recipes, and lots more ideas of things to make and do. Everything is completely free to download and print, so all it will cost you is the paper and the ink in your printer.

Have fun Disney fans!

Make Your Own Easter Bonnet Kit: was £10, now £2.50 @Mothercare

There's still a few days to go until the Easter celebrations start, and if the weather continues like this we will need lots to keep the children busy indoors!

This Make Your Own Easter Bonnet kit was £10 and is now £2.50 at Mothercare. It includes a straw hat, with ribbon and accessories for decorating. It's a nice easy craft that is just a case of sticking and then wearing the hat, then the kids can have their own Easter parade.

If you think the decorations provided aren't enough then Mothercare also sell a set of Easter Foam Stickers for just 50p, so the hat could be made super sparkly with those.

Exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier: Pre-order @ The Lego Shop

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 30 March, 2015 at 2:57 pm

Exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier: Pre-order @ The Lego Shop

This is not a deal. Not in any way. This Lego set is the full RRP, not reduced at all. BUT for any Lego fans this is just to share how magnificent this new Lego set is, so that you can gaze upon it in awe... then faint at the price tag.

The Lego Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier is available for pre-order exclusively at The Lego Shop online, with an expected due date of 6th April. It has 2996 pieces, and is recommended for ages 16 and above. Yep, not for kids this one.

You get to build the huge Helicarrier with its two runways, microscale jets and ground support vehicles. There are 12 microfigures to display in the decks and the interiors, along with loads of teeny accessories. You also get 5 normal sized minifigures:  Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill.

This is a set that you don't want to let the kids near once you've built it, you'll have to cragle it together and keep in the basement. It's £269.99.

In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy £6.74 @ Tesco / Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 30 March, 2015 at 2:31 pm

In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy £6.74 @ Tesco / Amazon

This In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy toy looks like a great buy for only £6.74, and Tesco reduced it as part of their big toys sale, and Amazon have price matched.

She is 23cm tall, soft and cuddly and says phrases from the TV show when you squeeze her tummy. Seeing as it's really young children who love the show it's good to know that this toy is suitable from birth so it's safe for the toddler fans.

I know there have been no new In The Night Garden episodes for years, but CBeebies still show it at 6.20pm every evening, and the one time they moved it they were flooded with complaints. Lots of parents use the programme to wind down their toddlers before bedtime, and there are always new fans because of this. My youngest is just short a few weeks away from turning two, and he has just started to take a shine to In The Night Garden, but he's sticking to gender stereotypes and liking the Ninky Nonk rather than Upsy Daisy!

Amazon will delivery this for free if your total ordered is over £10, otherwise delivery charges will apply. You can click and collect from Tesco for free, or delivery charges are from £3.

Peppa Pig Shaped Backpack: was £8.99 now £4.49 @ Argos

How cute is this Peppa Pig bag? And it's half price too! This Peppa Pig Shaped Backpack was £8.99, and is now down to £4.49 at Argos, which is a cracking price for such a different character bag like this.

It features Peppa in a yellow spotty dress with a little lacy detail at the bottom. It's a full sized kids backpack, 6 litre capacity, and 32cm high.

Stock seems very widely available, and can be delivered from £3.95 or you can reserve and collect for free.

Various Children's Single Duvet Cover Sets £8 @ Tesco Direct

As the price of everything keeps increasing steeply, we try to find affordable essentials too. Bedding can cost £££'s and I don't know about you but we go through a LOT of it in this house. Kids are sick on it, piddle the bed, drool all over it so it does need washed very, very frequently. I have found that it doesn't matter how much you pay for it, they fade and become worn. That's why I snap up bargains like these Children's Duvet Cover Sets for £8 at Tesco Direct.

There are a total of nine of them at this super price, all of which were reduced from £10.

Here they are:

How Do You Get Baby To Sleep?

by Nada in Misc on 30 March, 2015 at 11:32 am

How Do You Get Baby To Sleep?

As brilliant as my babies were at sleeping, no-one gets a baby that sleeps through the night straight from birth. We all use our own techniques to settle our precious bundles into the Land of Slumber, but we have came across a less conventional method. A Father who pops his baby into a remote controlled Truck! Yes, I am telling you the truth. It's not something we would recommend you do for obvious safety reasons, but it still made us gush lovingly.

I used a variety of methods when my three sons were newborns:

White Noise: You can get FREE apps, toys like Ewan the Dream Sheep*, or even CD's*. We used this when all else failed and boy did it work a treat. We didn't rate Ewan the Dream Sheep though.

Cuddling and Swaddling: When your baby is crying it is your natural reaction to nurture them and rightly so. The thing is when you need your sleep too, as nice as it is, you cannot cuddle them all night. Swaddling* can make a baby feel secure enough to nod off.

Breastfeeding/Bottle Feeding: Maybe baby is hungry? Pop them on the breast or feed them their bottle. Just remember to wind them properly.

Rocking: A rocking motion can be like Kryptonite to babies. I had a rocking crib* and I can tell you that it did do the trick.

Lullabies: Babies love to hear mummy or daddy's voice, although mine never enjoyed my singing.

The list goes on.... what's your tips for getting baby to sleep?

Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox £25 @ Asda George/Amazon

Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox £25 @ Asda George/Amazon

We are always telling our kids that their rooms are a tip so why not give them a Skip to chunk all their junk into? The Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox just has to be one of the coolest Toyboxes I have ever seen.  Just now it is only £25 at both Asda George and Amazon just now. There aren't many left at Amazon at this price so you may need to order it from Asda George.

The Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox would look awesome in a boys or a girls bedroom. If you have a digger fan then they will just go crazy for the fact that this is a JCB Skip.

There's nothing to say what this JCB Skip Toybox is made of, it could be MDF, Plastic or even Wood. All we know is that it comes flat packed and assembly is required. It looks like it all slots together and doesn't look difficult to build.

You can Click and Collect the JCB Skip Toybox for FREE from any Asda store or pay £2.95 for home delivery. Delivery is FREE when ordering from Amazon.

It is SO easy to use especially with the brush that's included. Sprinkle some Mineral Foundation into the lid, swirl your brush in it, hold your brush vertically and tap the tip of the handle, then buff it into the skin. Repeat until desired coverage is achieved.

My very own special tip is, when my skin is dry and flaky, is to mix some powder with a scent-free moisturiser. This is because I don't like the feeling of the powder when my skin is this bad.

Shades available are light, medium beige and medium tan.

Sanway Range Rover Style Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery £84.08 Delivered @ Amazon

Picture this...a nice warm day, you sprawled out soaking up the rays and VROOM your little Dude or Dudette comes round the corner in the coolest ride on you have ever seen. He he! I am a massive fan of battery operated ride ons and I know a lot of you mums and dads are too. That's why when I saw this Range Rover lookalike I just had to share. Get the Sanway Range Rover STYLE Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery for just £84.08 including FREE delivery.

The Sanway Range Rover Style Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery is pretty impressive. This ride on toy can drive forwards and can reverse. It can be steered left or right also. As soon as your child's foot leaves the accelerator it automatically brakes.

It makes realistic car sounds and even has working lights. There is a seatbelt to ensure that your child doesn't fall out and cause injury to themselves. My favourite feature is that there is an MP3 socket, preloaded with music.

This is a very show-offy ride on for those little ones who like to be noticed.

Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt £3.99 @ Argos

Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt £3.99 @ Argos

Elsa is still in high demand and no wonder, a truly positive, modern heroine for young girls. The kids love her and so do us parents, truth be known we have wanted to be a bit like her ourselves. Argos have reduced the price of the Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt from £6.99 to just £3.99. What a bargain! There appears to be plenty of stock availability across the UK, so your chances of bagging yourself one are high.

The Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt is vivid blue in colour, which is in keeping with the icy theme. There is a large motif that reads 'Elsa' and features her face surrounded by snowflakes.

This T-Shirt is made from 100% cotton, so it'll be gentle enough for sensitive skins plus nice and cool for the summer. It can be machine washed at forty degrees and most likely tumble dried too but I would read the label to double check.

Sizes available are 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 years and they are all in stock.

You can reserve and collect the Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt for FREE from your nearest Argos or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Minecraft Lights from £13.99 Delivered @ Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 March, 2015 at 8:42 pm

Minecraft Lights from £13.99 Delivered @ Amazon

Do you think all these cool lights are getting cheaper because we changed the clocks and the days are longer? Actually I don't think I'm that bothered why, but these Minecraft lights are cheaper now than I have ever seen them, and that's good news.

The Minecraft Light-Up Redstone Ore has an RRP of £29.99, has been selling for around £16 previously, and now the Amazon seller London Tykes has them for £13.99. Not bad at all!

My favourite (yes, I'm geeky) is the Minecraft Light Up Torch which is now £15.69 , sold by ThinkGeek (ah..). That's about £5 less than it was selling for recently.

Then there's the Minecraft Light-Up Diamond Ore at £16.79, sold by Tru Inertia.

All these are sold by Amazon sellers, but all are fulfilled by Amazon themselves, so all qualify for free delivery. From reviews it looks like the Torch is the best value as it's so much bigger, but if you are a Minecraft fan whether old or young I think any of these would be a really welcome gift.
