Up To 35% Off Converse @ Poppy & Zach

If the Amazon kid's shoe sale didn't have the sizes you need then this offer from Poppy & Zach is really good for Converse fans. They have up to 35% off children's and baby Converse, and prices start from just £15.57, which is a great price for this brand.

Most of the reductions are 25%, though some are more at 35% off, and others have 20% off, but just about all styles are reduced. This offer even includes the cute Converse 3 Piece Baby Gift Sets, which have around £5 off.

There's a good range of styles from Infant Velcro converse, to regular All Stars and High Tops, and sizes vary from newborns up to adult size 5 in some of the styles!

Stock levels look really good, and you only need to spend £30 to get Free Standard UK Delivery, with charges from £2.95 when you spend less.

There'll Be A Blue Moon Tonight. No, Really. (Except It's Not Blue.)

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 31 July, 2015 at 3:01 pm

There'll Be A Blue Moon Tonight. No, Really. (Except It's Not Blue.)

When I was a kid, one of my mum's most commonly-uttered phrases was 'There'll be a blue moon tonight.'

You know the sort of thing; you ate up all your broccoli without complaint or tidied your room without being asked, and she'd ruffle my hair and mutter 'There'll be a blue moon tonight'.

Except tonight there actually WILL be a blue moon, and no-one has had to eat a plate of greying broccoli or tidy up their toys to make it happen, as far as I am aware.

Here's what the Metro says about this strange phenomenon:

That rare lunar phenomenon that everyone talks about is about to happen.

But newsflash: it’s not going to be blue. And it’s not actually that rare. Oh.

A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in a month, and that happens around every three years.

So it's not actually blue, then. And 'once in a blue moon' actually means every three years.
Hmm.

KidKraft Modern Living Dollhouse & Accessories £76.16 (was £131) @ Amazon

KidKraft Modern Living Dollhouse & Accessories £76.16 (was £131) @ Amazon

This has got to be one of the most impressive dolls houses I have seen. The KidKraft Modern Living Dollhouse has 40% off, taking the price down from £131 to £76.16 with delivery included from Amazon.

It's a large, three story, split level open plan house so that children can play with it from all sides at once and several children can play at the same time. It comes with 20 pieces of furniture, and very posh they are too, as they include a big flat screen TV to fit to the wall, and an outside grill for the pool area. Those dolls are going to love this house!

It says that it can accommodate 12.5cm dolls like this KidKraft Family*, but somehow they don't look like they would live in a house like this, and as long as your child's dolls can fit in the seats and the bed I don't think it will matter too much.

There's no delivery charge to add as this KidKraft Modern Living Dollhouse is over the £20 spend.

What Would Disney Princes Look Like If They Were Real?

What Would Disney Princes Look Like If They Were Real?

You might remember that we featured some amazing pictures last week showing Anna, Elsa and other Disney Princesses re-imagined as real humans. The work was done by artist Jirka Väätäinen, who creates these digital artworks as a project using portraits of actors as a basis for "envisioning what the girls of Disney might look like in real life".

Well since those beautiful images were released he has been very busy, as his website now has a whole new set of pictures with 'Real Disney Princes'. The new images include Hercules, Tarzan, John Smith and Aladdin, as well as Princes Eric, Adam/The Beast, Philip and Charming.

Silver Cross Pop Stroller On Pre-order @ Mothercare for £85 Delivered (Was £140)

by Becky Barratt in Deals on 30 July, 2015 at 8:45 pm

Silver Cross Pop Stroller On Pre-order @ Mothercare for £85 Delivered (Was £140)

When my daughter was younger we invested in a Silver Cross stroller for days out or if we were going away. It was so much easier than taking her big Bugaboo pushchair, it took up less room in the boot, was lighter to carry and was more compact. It still cost a fair bit of money, over the £200 mark but because it was a godsend I was happy to pay it. The good news is that you can now get a Silver Cross Pushchair for just £85 over at Mothercare. The Silver Cross Pop Stroller retails at £140 so there is a massive saving of £55.

The only design and colour at this price is the Blue Bubbles which is still unisex. It is also on a pre-order, with stock due in from the 3rd August. There are many features to this pushchair including, UPF50+ hood and pop-out sun visor, lockable wheels, five point harness-great feature for any little escape artists!

Another great feature is the one handed fold and multi recline seat positions including a lie flat position, which makes it suitable for newborns. Also included is a raincover, shopping basket, shoulder carry strap and a multi position cup holder. This pushchair is extra light, perfect for going on holiday or for travelling on public transport.

Standard delivery is FREE, you are unable to Click and Collect on this item.

Save £12.50 on Disney Doc McStuffins Secret Check Up Diary Now £7.49 @ ELC

Great price on this Disney Doc McStuffins Secret Check up Diary over at Early Learning Centre right now. It's now just £7.49 down from £19.99 in their Summer sale. A great buy for any little Doc McStuffins fans!

The perfect way for your little one's to keep their medical notes in when they are pretending to be Doctor's! As this is a secret diary it comes with an alarm and can only be opened with a special fob. Another feature which I think is really cool is the invisible ink pen, which can only reveal the writing with a UV light on the key fob! There is also a secret compartment within the diary for hiding secret messages and bits and pieces. Just think how much fun your little ones will have with the secret pen, hours of entertainment! :-)

Little Tikes Cape Cottage £64.99 (using code) @ Toys R Us

Last week Toys R Us promised their lowest ever prices on outdoor toys, and they really delivered with some amazing bargains. This week they have added even more to that offer, and one of them is the Little Tikes Cape Cottage.

They have taken £30 off the price, making it £69.99 rather than £99.99, and that's by far the best price I have seen for this playhouse. Then you can also get a further £5 off by entering the voucher code 9908084429995 at the checkout!

I really like this playhouse, and I have been keeping a close eye on it. The lowest price I have seen before is £80, and that was a great offer as it's not normally much under £100.

It's a sturdy and well made playhouse, as you would expect from the Little Tikes brand. It's got modern detailing with the windows, arched door and brick detailing. It's got lots of lovely details like the opening door, shutters on the windows, a mail slot and even a place to hang a flag.

There's no delivery charges to add either, as it qualifies for free delivery, so you can get this to your home for just £64.99.

You can check out the other items in the Outdoor Toys offer here*, and you can find this Toys R Us voucher code here in our voucher section.

Kid's Plastic Bench Set With Parasol £30 (was £40) @ Tesco Direct

Kid's Plastic Bench Set With Parasol £30 (was £40) @ Tesco Direct

The sun is coming out, and there are predictions of an August heatwave on the way, so there will be a lot of us out in the garden this summer. If you have children who want to do everything outside then this furniture set could come in  very handy, and it's a great price too. The Kid's Plastic Bench Set With Parasol has £10 off at Tesco Direct, making it only £30 for the set.

I had this bench set without the parasol a few years ago, and it was so handy for my then toddler. He would eat his meals outside in the summer, use the table for drawing and sticker books, and play with his cars on it as well. I had to keep moving it into the shade as the one I had didn't come with a parasol, so this version is so much better coming with that extra.

You can click and collect from Tesco stores for free, or home delivery will add a further £3 to your order.

Legoland FLASH SALE: Kids Go Free In August @ Legoland Holidays

Legoland FLASH SALE: Kids Go Free In August @ Legoland Holidays

If you were thinking of going to a trip to Legoland Windsor this summer then take a look at the prices the are offering right now! They have a 72 hour Flash Sale on, with a Kids Go Free offer this August, and short breaks with 2 days in the park from £142 per family!

The Kids Go Free gives Legoland breaks at their cheapest August prices ever (or that's what their website says!) and £142 for a family of four does sound pretty fantastic.

Short breaks at those sorts of prices are for a family of four staying in a nearby hotel (the Legoland one is much more pricey), breakfast included, and your second day in the park is free.

This Flash Sale ends at 9am on 3rd August so you have a little while to take advantage of this offer, but some of the dates are being snapped up very quickly, as are the cheapest deals, so there are much more around £180 and upwards now.

SEGA Megadrive Portable Games Console £17.99 (was £39.99) @ Argos

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 30 July, 2015 at 3:52 pm

SEGA Megadrive Portable Games Console £17.99 (was £39.99) @ Argos

This SEGA Megadrive Portable Games Console is less than half price at Argos, down from just short of £40 to only £17.99. It comes loaded with more than 20 classic games like Sonic The Hedgehog, and it's a compact console great for travelling.

Although you might think that this won't interest children it's aimed at over 5s and at retro gamers who want to play the games they grew up with, plus most of these games will new to children, and from my experience they enjoy playing these classic games as much as the latest ones. My eldest is just a happy playing Sonic as Mario Kart 8!

If you were thinking of taking a tablet or console with you on holiday, or to keep the children occupied on the journey, then this is a cheaper alternative, and much less of a worry if it gets lost or broken. Heidi recently wrote about the cost of all the gadgets we take on holiday, and I'd much rather risk an £18 console than the tablet that cost many times that.

There's plenty of stock around for the free reserve and collect from Argos stores, or you can get the SEGA Megadrive Console delivered for £3.95.

Design You Own Star Wars Shoes @ adidas

Design You Own Star Wars Shoes @ adidas

Adidas have just launched the most amazing thing to happen to shoes... well I think so, and if you're reading this with Star Wars in the title I guess you're a fan too.  You can now personalise your own adidias shoes with Star Wars images, designed and printed just for you!

In the UK you can choose from a big library of star wars images, and select your characters, scenes, illustrations, sketches or Star Wars patterns. You can then crop, rotate, and change your image until it's exactly how you want it and the place your order.

These shoes are not going to come cheap, and as soon as the app you need finishes installing I will be able to tell you exactly how expensive they are. But they are amazing. ;)

It doesn't say what sizes these mi ZX Flux Star Wars come in, and until my naff phone decides it will download the app I can't check either, sorry. Isn't technology grand?

There is still a Star Wars Adidas Kid's Range* already for sale on the website, and I suspect that these standard designs are going to be way cheaper than the personalised ones.

I am a bit miffed that the UK ones aren't as cool as the US version though. Take a look at the photo below and you'll see what I mean. Which ones would you rather have?

Half Price Paddling Pools from £2.50 @ ELC

Half Price Paddling Pools from £2.50 @ ELC

ELC have slashed the prices of their paddling pools, and with only one exception they are all half price! Prices start at just £2.50, and there are some great play pools, baby pools, water play mates and more.

The only pool that isn't reduced is the Thomas the Tank Engine one, which is over priced at £12.99, but all the others have the full 50% discount.

For £2.50 you can get My First Pool which is a shallow baby splash pool, the Frog Baby Shade Pool is now £8, three ring pools start at £6 too.

I think the best value are the Racer Pools in red or pink, as they look so much fun, are an unusual design, and would work really well as a ball pool as well as they are quite deep. At £12.50 each these are great value for a novelty pool.

Any of these ELC pools can be collected for free from stores, delivery is free over £50, otherwise charges will apply.

Kub Wooden Moses Basket Stand £4.99/£7.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 30 July, 2015 at 11:55 am

Kub Wooden Moses Basket Stand £4.99/£7.99 @ Argos

Moses Baskets don't tend to come with stands when you buy them, and that can really bump the price up if you want a good quality one. Argos have reduced two Kub Wooden Moses Basket Stands and they are super cheap. The Kub Wooden Folding Moses Basket Stand was £14.99 now £4.99 and the Kub Wooden Rocking Moses Basket Stand was £19.99 now £7.99. Both are a great buy.

The Kub Folding Moses Basket Stand is most like your regular type of stand. It's a steal at £4.99 as it is wooden. Like it's name suggests it does fold which makes it easy to store or transport to Granny's house or wherever you wish to take it.

The difference with Kub Rocking Moses Basket Stand is that the stand will move gently back and forth. This is great for those babies that need a little help drifting off to sleep.

You can Reserve and Collect the Kub Wooden Moses Basket Stand from Argos for FREE or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your front door.
