A Gold Cot Fit For A Prince (Or A Princess)

A Gold Cot Fit For A Prince (Or A Princess)

Kate Middleton is soon to birth her second Royal Baby. We don't know the sex of the baby, but one things for sure it'll want for nothing whether it comes out a Prince or a Princess. The Duchess of Cambridge is very down to earth but we can't help but wonder whether they have any extravagances like this Bela Luxury Cot*. Perhaps, they will receive one from a wealthy relative but if we want one it would set us back £34,860.00.

Okay, so I am guessing that 99.9% of us don't have a spare £35k lying about to spend on a cot and those of us that do would we spend it on something so excessive?

I do think it's very regal and cool though with it's gold colour. For those of you who are like me and would quite fancy gold coloured cot then check out this Asda George bargain, here*. Yours for just £69 delivered. Just enter DELFREE at the checkout and get FREE delivery.

Apart from the £34,799 difference in price, how else do the two vary? The Bela Luxury Cot is plated in 18k gold whereas the Asda George one is painted solid pine wood. A Champagne Silk Mattress versus no mattress.

I like the novelty value of the Bela Luxury Cot but for me the Limited Edition Gold Cot by Asda George wins hands down for great value.

 Save Up To A Third On Baby & Toddler Toys @ Tesco Direct

Tesco have their Baby Event on at the same time as the Asda one, meaning that we have great baby and toddler deals popping up all over right now. Tesco Direct have reduced the price of nearly 200 of their Baby and Toddler Toys, and although the promotion says that the prices have been reduced by up to a third there are items that are half price in there too.

Prices start from just £3.33, and the offers include Lego Duplo, Playmobil, Melissa and Doug, Disney, Thomas, Mega Bloks and lots more. Here are a few of the best that I can see:

  • Lego Duplo Number Train - was £12, now £9
  • Plum Hendon Wooden Kitchen - was £70, now £35
  • Wooden Bakery Play Set - was £10, now £6.67
  • Paddington Talking Soft Toy - was £18, now £12
  • VTech Infant Discovery Cube - was £50, now £28
  • Carousel 60 Piece Train Set - was £12, now £9
  • Playmobil Carry Cases - was £10, now £6.67
  • Melissa & Doug Monthly Magnetic Calendar - was £15, now £10
  • The Gruffalo Hand Puppet - was £25, now £12.50

There are loads more really good toy deals, and it's worth a quick look if you have any birthday presents to get, or to pop a few things in the cupboard for party presents.

I'm really impressed with the Plum Hendon Kitchen for only £35, as that's a really good price for a good quality wooden play kitchen. If I hadn't already got one for my youngest I'd be getting one of those, especially as it's not a pink one!

All of these toys can be home delivered from £3, or you can click and collect from any Tesco store.

3-in-1 Walker Ride-On Learning Train: Half Price and Free Delivery @ Very

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 17 April, 2015 at 6:54 pm

3-in-1 Walker Ride-On Learning Train: Half Price and Free Delivery @ Very

This toy looks pretty fantastic, it's half price in the the sale at Very, and this weekend there's free delivery too! This means that instead of the £40 it was originally, it's £20 delivered! The next cheapest I can find is £24.99 and that's before delivery charges, so I think this is a really good price.

Although the picture on the Very website doesn't show it, the toy has loads of learning activities, sounds and music. It can be used as a floor play toy, then as a walker using the engine piece, then the carriage can be added turning it into a ride-on.

It's suitable from 12 months to around 3 years, and needs 3 AA batteries for the lights and sounds. The reviews are all really positive, and this one is my favourite:

He goes around the house saying choo choo and it's driving my daughter mad. The best money I ever spent.

To get the free delivery you need to add the code 6CTCR, and that will give you free standard UK delivery all weekend with no minimum spend. You can find that and other Very Promotional Codes over in our voucher section.

Back Seat Parents: Three Things We Swore We'd Never Do... Until We Had Kids

Back Seat Parents: Three Things We Swore We'd Never Do... Until We Had Kids

Hey, remember back when you thought you had parenthood all sewn up? Cast your mind back to w-a-y before you had kids. Back when - armed with nothing more than your judgemental observations of other parents and a breath-taking degree of naivety - you had views on everything from handling tantrums to tackling toilet training.

My friend Liza has a name for people like that - the kind of people most of us were before our kids came along. ‘Backseat parents,’ she calls them.“I was one,” she says. “I reckon we all were until we actually had kids."

"You know they type; despite never having been parents, they happily dispense their pearls of parental wisdom to unsuspecting friends and family - before skipping home to their immaculately tidy houses where they sleep uninterrupted for at least eight blissful hours. But the moment they have a child of their own, everything changes.”

Yep, I was one of 'those' people. So as an act of an attrition, here is my confession. These are just three of the many stupid things I fervently believed about how to be a brilliant parent. Before I actually met my kids...

Bounce & Ride Musical Thomas £9.60 with code @ The Works

My toddler loves trains, and I know he would adore this Bounce and Ride Musical Thomas toy. It's selling for £12 at The Works, but with the code 20FD you get 20% off making it just £9.60!

It's an inflatable bouncy version of everyone's favourite engine, and when you tap his funnel you get sound effects, engine whistles and the theme tune.

Delivery is £2.99, or you can click and collect free from store. You also get free delivery over £10 with this voucher code though, so I'd be tempted to add something cheap like a 59p Bubble Mix* to get the free delivery.

10% Off When You Spend £30 In The Star Wars Shop @ Zavvi

It seems the whole world has gone a bit Star Wars mad with the release of the trailer for the next movie due out at Christmas. Having a new trilogy of films in the franchise, then one a year after that means that a whole new generation is going to go Star Wars crazy. There are an awful lot of grown up fans out there, and many of them will be needing Fathers Day Gifts soon as well!

Right now Zavvi have an offer of 10% off when you spend £30 on Star Wars, and they have free delivery on everything as well. There are fantastic Pop Vinyl figures from £10.99, T-shirts, Blu-rays, action figures, and even Star Wars Lego is included in the offer!

There's no code to enter, the discount is automatically applied at the checkout. If your house is anything like ours you could grab a few gifts in one and get the 10% off. Hubby would like the retro Star Wars t-shirts, so that would be Fathers Day organised from the kids, and my eldest is Lego crazy so spending £30 shouldn't be too hard!

FREE LEGO: Daily Mail Promotion Due In May

by Lisa Hayes in Freebies on 17 April, 2015 at 1:59 pm

FREE LEGO: Daily Mail Promotion Due In May

This is advance warning for the next Daily Mail Free Lego Promotion, that we know is scheduled to take place in May. Although we have details of the Lego sets that we have been told will be given away, the date is yet to be confirmed. It's normally around the May Half Term, so the best guess in 22nd May at the moment, but it may be earlier to coincide with the Lego Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 launch. When dates are confirmed we will let you know.

For those of you who are new to the madness that is Daily Mail Free Lego, this is how it works. Every day during the promotional period the Daily Mail / Mail On Sunday will print a voucher in the paper that you then take to a WH Smiths or Toys R Us to collect your free toy. That's it, nice and simple.

Here are the sets that are expected to be included:

Mum Wins Right To Delay Daughter's Start To School Without Missing Reception Year

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 17 April, 2015 at 12:49 pm

Mum Wins Right To Delay Daughter's Start To School Without Missing Reception Year

A mother has won a landmark legal ruling, allowing her daughter to start school a year later than usual due to her summer birthday.

Rosie Dutton opted to delay her daughter's start to school because the little girl, whose birthday is in August, turned four years old just a few weeks before she was due to start school.

But the council informed the family that Olivia would have to go straight to Year 1 when she started school, missing out on her Reception year entirely.

The Daily Mail reports:

Now, Olivia has been given a place in Reception at her top choice of school, Heathfields Infants School in Tamworth, after the council accepted Ms Dutton's appeal.

The decision could open the floodgates to a tide of similar cases regarding parents of 'summer babies' who want their child to start Reception class after they turn five. 

According to campaigners, Olivia's case is just one of 250,000 across the country where summer-born children are being compelled to catch up with older classmates after skipping a year of education. 

Schools usually review such requests on a case by case basis, with 'exceptional circumstances' such as a baby being born prematurely being take into account when determining whether to accept an application to delay the start of a child's education.

Alongside the worry of whether your child will be offered a place at the primary school of your choice, many parents feel particularly anxious about the possibility that their child will be held back at school due to being younger than their peers.

Is this something that worries you? Do you welcome this news, on the basis that you would consider delaying your own child's start to school, or do you think parents who delay their child's education aren't thinking far enough ahead, or taking their child's own interests into account?

We'd love to hear your views on this.

Numatic Little Henry Toy Vacuum Cleaner £13.33 @ Amazon/Tesco Direct

by Nada in Deals on 17 April, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Numatic Little Henry Toy Vacuum Cleaner £13.33 @ Amazon/Tesco Direct

My son used to hate the vacuum cleaner, until a friend of mine bought him a little toy hoover. Each time I would vacuum downstairs, you would hear 'thud, thud' as he rushed down the stairs. He would then frantically join in with his little hoover. If you are looking for a toy vacuum cleaner then they don't come cooler than the Numatic Little Henry Toy Vacuum Cleaner. Get it from Tesco Direct or Amazon and it's yours for £13.33.

The Numatic Little Henry Toy Vacuum Cleaner is a scaled down version of that cheeky faced Vacuum. It comes with a dustpan and brush that fit neatly inside.

Just like the full sized one, this Little Henry Cleaner has a hose with a T-bar nozzle. The best bit about the Numatic Little Henry Toy Vacuum is that he can actually pick up little pieces of paper as well as small poly beads. To do this he requires four C type batteries.

You can buy him from Amazon if you wish for FREE home delivery. If you would rather pick your order up at your convenience then buy him from Tesco Direct and opt for Click and Collect.

Batman/Superman/Breaking Bad/Stormtrooper Look-ALite LED Table Lamp £15.99 Delivered @ IWOOT

Batman/Superman/Breaking Bad/Stormtrooper Look-ALite LED Table Lamp £15.99 Delivered @ IWOOT

Needing a lamp for an office, bedroom or man cave? These are the ones that you must have. Head over to IWOOT and you can find the Look-ALite LED Table Lamp range. There's a choice of Batman, Superman, Stormtrooper and Breaking Bad Cook Suit. Each are priced at £19.99 but if you use promo code BIG20 you will get 20% off. Plus you get FREE delivery.

Each of these Look-ALite LED Table Lamps are operated by three AAA batteries or by micro USB. These are moulded to some of our favourite characters and omit an atmospheric glow.

I wouldn't buy these if you need a lamp at your bedside for night-time reading as they won't provide sufficient light. They do look really cool and are really more for ornamental use.

My other half would be very happy if I bought him the Batman one. It's not going to happen though as he would to put it in the living room or somewhere totally inappropriate.

Remember, delivery is FREE on any of these.

Another major plus for those who use the YSL Touche Eclat is that it's self-dispensing. No faffing around with finding your concealer brush, as this is a make-up pen with brush attached. It's ideal for those who need to touch up on the go.

Nicholas Millington Corsage Bridal Dress £38.94 Delivered @ eBay Store: Very Clearance

In case you didn't know, I am getting married in June. My dress was an absolute bargain and that's because I just couldn't bring myself to spend £1000 on a dress that I will wear once. It still cost me hundreds but if your budget is tight then the last thing you want to do is blow it all on that dress. We have found this gorgeous Nicholas Millington Corsage Bridal Dress on eBay Store: Very Clearance. Get this, it was £309 and is now only £34.99.

The Nicholas Millington Corsage Bridal Dress is ever so pretty and if I had clapped eyes on it before I got my dress I would have ordered it to try it on.

It features a gentle sweetheart bust, which means it will flatter a lot of shapes and sizes. The floral, corsage detailing on the bodice is absolutely stunning and the thick waistband again will create a feminine shape. The skirt is tiered and has some volume to it.

There's sizes 8, 10, 12 and 14 available and I think it's a very pretty dress for anyone getting married in the near future.

The delivery charge is £3.95. However, in the dresses description it states that delivery and returns are FREE so I would ask for the FREE delivery!

Disney Frozen Olaf T-Shirt £1.99 @ Marks And Spencer

Disney Frozen Olaf T-Shirt £1.99 @ Marks And Spencer

The Disney Frozen Olaf T-Shirt from Marks and Spencer is now only £1.99. You need to be quick if you want one as they are selling like hot cakes. There's only 18-24 months and 2-3 years left, so if you have a little person that likes Frozen then get clicking the link below.

The Disney Frozen Olaf T-Shirt is grey in colour and has long sleeves. It's aimed at little boys but there's nothing to say a little girl couldn't wear it. It's not mega boyish, well at least I don't think it is.

It's made from 60% cotton 40% polyester and can be washed at thirty degrees. Not sure if you can tumble dry it but that doesn't matter at this time of year as you can hang it out to dry.

On the front is a big Olaf motif which will please any Frozen fan. I just adore Olaf myself. I suggest when ironing this top to turn it inside out or Olaf will literally melt on the front.

You can Click and Collect for FREE from your nearest Marks and Spencer store or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

TP Summer Lodge £149.99 @ Toys R Us

Wooden Playhouse are the new wooden kitchens, EVERYONE seems to want one. This one is pretty amazing and is half price at Toys R Us, making it £149.99, reduced from £299. It's proved so popular at this price that it has sold out for home delivery, so it's a matter of whether your local one has it in stock or not. You can check this using the link below, just hit the "Reserve Now" button.

The TP Summer Lodge Playhouse is made from solid wood, that is untreated. That means that you must put an appropriate wood stain and preservative on it, so it can survive the elements. Why not go all out and paint it in bright colours?

My favourite feature of this grand wooden playhouse is the balcony. It's pretty cool and everyone wants a balcony, right? It's floored too as the floor from inside the house continues to outside.

It also features two pretty perspex windows and a full size door. Imagine those cheeky little faces peeking out at you. The kids would have a ball with this and I think it's worth it's current price.

Hayfever Tablets (Cetirizine) 2 Packs Of 14 79p Delivered @ Amazon Seller: Your247Chemist

Hayfever Tablets (Cetirizine) 2 Packs Of 14 79p Delivered @ Amazon Seller: Your247Chemist

It's getting to that time of year when allergies hit us hard. I was recently in Paris and I was so glad they have a Pharmacy on nearly every street corner as I was constantly needing Allergy Relief in the form of Antihistamines. They don't come cheap and I just stuck with the brands as my French is dreadful normally I would just opt for a generic Cetirizine tablet. These combat my many allergies including Hayfever and cost only 79p from Amazon Seller: Your247Chemist. This is for a total of 28 tablets, with FREE delivery.

We cannot advise you on what medication to take, and you must not take anything without doing your own research or by consulting a Health Professional.

These Hayfever Tablets (Cetirizine) are NOT suitable for children under the age of 6. We urge you to follow the guidelines on the packet for dosage and for any advisories.

These are known to relieve symptoms of Hayfever and pet allergies, and 28 might seem a lot but when you have to take them frequently (again, read the label) , even when sticking to the correct dosage, you can fairly get through them.

In case, I haven't made it clear enough....only take them if you need them, always read the label and consult a Health Professional if you are unsure about whether you need these or not!
