10% Off ALL Furniture This Weekend in store @ B&M

10% Off ALL Furniture This Weekend in store @ B&M

If you are lucky enough to have a B&M store near to you, especially one of the B&M Home stores, then it might be worth a visit this weekend. On top of their already super cheap prices they have a further 10% off all furniture from today until Sunday 1st March.

Looking at the kids furniture and storage items that they have I'm very tempted myself! It includes things like Kids Ready Beds which start at £9.99 before the discount, wooden storage benches for £14.99, toddler beds for £59.99 and there's even a single bed frame for £29! That works out at £26.10 this weekend! As their special offers marketing team say, "WOW!"

By the way that Toddler bed that works out at £54? It's a Frozen* one. And they have a Frozen Ready Bed too.

The bad news (sorry) is that B&M still don't offer online shopping, even for large bulky furniture items, so it's a case of looking online, and ringing your local store to check if they have what you want in stock.

You don't have to stick with kids furniture, and there's a surprisingly large range online, but what they stock in your local store will vary according to the size of the branch. I'm hoping they have some of those storage shelves in our branch, as I missed the lidl ones a few weeks ago.

Disney Princess Night Dress £3.99 @ Argos

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 27 February, 2015 at 7:57 pm

Disney Princess Night Dress £3.99 @ ArgosLast summer, these Disney Princess dresses from Argos were huge. They'd fly out of stock as soon as they were reduced and they were so popular we wrote about them regularly. It's been ages since they were last reduced though, and now Argos has the Disney Princess Girls' Pink Nightdress down from £9.99 to £3.99.

I'm pretty confident that if I give this to my little girl it will soon end up in the fancy dress box rather than the pyjama box, and will become a favourite play thing, but at the price, who can argue!

These Disney Princess Girls' Pink Nightdresses are a must have for Disney fans - my girls have a few different Disney princess dresses and they love them.

These dresses are 100% Polyester and are obviously machine washable at 40C so whether they are used for play or sleep, they can be kept nice and clean and royal-like. They last really well too - my girls are still in the ones we bought them last year. They keep their shape and they wash well. 

Kids Go Free To Attractions Across Scotland With Kids Go Free @ Scotrail

Kids Go Free To Attractions Across Scotland With Kids Go Free @ Scotrail

As the Easter holidays approach and you're saving hard for that summer holiday while still trying to pay off Christmas, days out can seem like an extravagance you can't afford. While this may not make them free, it may make them more affordable for families.

You may or may not know that Scotrail have been running a promo for some time where up to two kids can go free with a paying adult off peak. BUT did you also know that those kids train tickets can be used to get kids into a whole load of attractions across Scotland for FREE? No? Then read on.

But I drive I here you say. Yeah so many people do nowadays but using this sneaky tip, you can still save pounds this summer on family days out. Just let's deal with the actual train travellers first.

So “Kids Go Free” from Scotrail is designed for kids aged 5-15 to travel for free off peak (generally after 9.15 am and evenings and all weekend including school holidays) and up to two kids can travel with one fare paying adult.

If you use this to travel to your chosen attraction, one child will get in for free per paying adult. So if there’s you and your partner, both buy one "Kids Go Free" ticket at the station and enter the attraction with one child each. So you’ve paid for two adults but both kids have got in for free.

If you drive, this can still benefit you and your family. As above buy a “Kids Go Free” ticket at the train station but if you’re not travelling by train, you’re not wanting to shell out any more than you have to. The cheapest fare I can see online is from Glasgow Queen Street to Glasgow High Street. This costs £1.10 and your child will get into your chosen attraction for free. You may know of a cheaper route, this is just an example of a "Kids Go Free" ticket you could buy at your local station before setting off.

Edinburgh Zoo for example costs £12 per child, while Deep Sea World Costs £9.50, so if you can get each child in for just £1.10 using the Scotrail trick above, there’s tidy savings to be made.

Under 3’s get into most of these attractions for free but double check that with your chosen venue.

So there you have it, what do you think?

Disney Mickey Mouse Sleep Bag £5 @ George

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 27 February, 2015 at 7:41 pm

Disney Mickey Mouse Sleep Bag £5 @ George Asda's George has a great bargain offer for parents of little ones right now - this Disney Mickey Mouse Sleeping Bag is reduced to £5 instead of £11, which is a £6 saving. There's free click and collect in store, or you can have it delivered for £2.95.

These baby sleeping bags are so convenient when you have a child who kicks the covers off at night! It's a great way to keep little ones warm during the night, and especially useful if you're planning any camping this year. They were a godsend for us camping with babies.

This is apparently a beautifully soft piece, so your little one will be cosy and snug. It's ideal for room temperatures between 10 - 20C they say. The main body is breathable cotton, 100%'s worth, and the wadding is 100% Polyester.

Tip: When you use a baby sleeping bag, test to see whether baby's head can pass through without it being unbuttoned. If it can, your baby is too small for the sleeping bag, and is not safe. 

1000 Extra Clubcard Points When You Spend £60 On Lego @ Tesco

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 27 February, 2015 at 7:28 pm

1000 Extra Clubcard Points When You Spend £60 On Lego @ Tesco

We all love Lego. I mean our kids all love Lego, so this is a little incentive to get a few things to put away for any upcoming birthdays, parties, or gifts at Tesco while this offer is on.  When you spend £60 or more on Lego at Tesco you get an extra 1000 Tesco Clubcard points. That's worth £10 off your shopping, or up to £40 in Tesco Clubcard Boost vouchers!

There's no code to enter, the extra points are automatically applied at the checkout. It includes Lego that is reduced in price or on another promotion, and the only exclusion is Lego that is sold by Tesco Partners (ie by The Entertainer and so on rather than sold by Tesco themselves).

The offer is on until the 2nd of March, and your extra 1000 points will appear on the next statement your receive after that. Then all you have to do is decide how to spend them! When we get 1000 points they go on a family trip to Blackpool Zoo, which saves us £40! Not bad if you were going to buy Lego anyway... :)

School-Gate Parking And Leaving Kids In Cars: What's Your View?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 27 February, 2015 at 6:51 pm

School-Gate Parking And Leaving Kids In Cars: What's Your View?

The school run is a stress-fest at the best of times, but factor in a baby falling asleep in the car just as you’re collecting older siblings, and it swiftly turns into a moral minefield.

Because what do you do if you drive your little ones to school and have a young baby whose nap time coincides with pick-up? A - Leave the sleeping child in the car even if it means they’re out of sight, albeit momentarily? B - Park on double yellow lines or in the way of other traffic / pedestrians in order to let your napper grab forty winks whilst still within your line of sight, albeit endangering the lives of other road users at the same time? Or - C - prioritise the safety of all the other parents and children by parking safely and waking your baby to take them with you to the school gates - even if that means spending the rest of the day paying for it with an over-tired, nap-resistant baby?

Cuddleuppets: Now from £3.99 @ Bargain Max

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 27 February, 2015 at 3:06 pm

Cuddleuppets: Now from £3.99 @ Bargain Max

The last time we told you about Cuddleuppets at Bargain Max they were selling them for £5.99, which was a bit of a bargain. Well the good news is that they have now dropped the price even further, and now they are from as little as £3.99 each! Even adding on the £1.49 delivery charge this is by far the cheapest I can find.

If you don't know what they are, Cuddleuppets are cuddly blankets for kids that are also puppets. They are big, fluffy blankets in different animal designs that your child can use as a puppet with their hand to make their Cuddluppet talk, dance and play. Whether us grown ups can 'get' the appeal of these or not, it seems that kids love them!

The three designs available at Bargain Max are the Pink Poodle and Yellow Dog both at £3.99 each, or the Unicorn which is £4.99. All were originally selling for between £9.99 and £14.99, and are still around that price in most stores. Even Amazon is charging more (which is fairly unusual!).

I was wondering whether they were selling these off with the spring on it's way... then I shivered and wondered whether to put the heating on instead. I think a blanket will still get a lot of use!

Odeon & Vue: 2 for 1 Wednesdays in March

Odeon & Vue: 2 for 1 Wednesdays in March

If you were an Orange/EE customer you would probably have taken advantage of the 2 For 1 Cinema Ticket offer. Unfortunately Orange/EE pulled out when their sponsorship deal ended, and last Wednesday 25th February was the last Orange Wednesday.

The good news is that whilst a new sponsor is being looked for two of the biggest cinema chains are continuing the 2 for 1 Wednesdays with their own offer throughout March.

Vue announced their offer a few days ago, and Odeon announced theirs last night, so if either of these are your local cinema then you're in luck!

For the Vue 2 for 1 Orange Wednesday offer you need to sign up on their website and they send you a unique membership number which you quote at the box office or online to get your 2 for 1 on Wednesdays throughout March.

The Odeon offer works in a similar way - you sign up and they send you a code, but it looks like you have to request a different one each time you want to take them up on the offer.

All the details and how to claim the offers are on the links above. Now we're just waiting for Cineworld and Showcase and most of us will be sorted!

Helping your child handle anything that marks them out as different from their peers is a challenge for any parent.

But one couple have taken that a step further by getting a tattoo of their little girl's birthmark on their own legs. We're not talking a small tattoo either - these stretch from thigh to ankle.

Easter: Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud - Bunny £3.33 @ Tesco Direct

Who said Easter is all about the chocolate? Okay so I did, but it's also about the cute bunnies, right? For those of you who don't wish to give to chocolate at Easter this Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny is just ideal. Plus it has money off just now making it just £3.33. For the price of an Easter egg you can give this lovely little bunny wabbit.

The Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny is suitable for children aged twelve months old and above. Maybe it's baby's first Easter or first birthday? It's a nice little touch for a little one. I just think this is such a nice alternative to chocolate.

This little cute bunny is completely machine washable, which is a Godsend for cuddly toys as kids drool all over them. It has a lovely knitted finish to it and I like how that makes this look a bit home-made and traditional looking.

You can Click and Collect the Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny for FREE from you local Tesco store or pay £3 to have it delivered to your door.

Up To 50% Off Children's Shoes @ Start-Rite

Up To 50% Off Children's Shoes @ Start-Rite

Start-Rite are right up there with the other great children's shoemakers Clarks. We LOVE them and even more so when we get them cheap. Let's face it, Start-Rite shoes aren't cheap unless you get them in the sale. It just so happens that they have Up to 50% off selected Children's Shoes just now. Yippee! As the seasons change it's sometimes a good time to buy lighter footwear. Having said that, don't turf away those winter boots yet, as it wouldn't be the first time we have seen snow in March.

I think the girls' selection is much better than the boys in the Start-Rite sale. However, there's a reasonable choice for the boys, and I have my beady eyes on a pair.

Here's my pick of the Girls' Sale Shoes: Flexy Soft Flower Girls Purple Leather First Walking Shoes* was £40 now £22, Scilla Black Patent Girls First Walking Shoes* was £38 now £19 and Super Soft Amy Stone Walking Shoes* was £36 now £15.

For the boys: Incy Spider Brown Leather Shoes* was £40 now £20 and Start-Rite Super Soft Sam First Walking Shoes* was £36 now £18.

Delivery is £2.99.

Girls' Clothing Sale: Everything 50%, 60% Or 70% Off @ Mango

Girls' Clothing Sale: Everything 50%, 60% Or 70% Off @ Mango

Wow! The sale at Mango is absolutely amazing. The Girls' Clothing Sale selection is full to the brim with bargains that have 50%, 60% or 70% off. Not seen the childrenswear at Mango? Think Zara, think that laid back, uber cool styling. With items starting below £3, you just have to check it out or show it to someone with a little girl. I'd say Mango's original pricing is more expensive but their sale pricing blows them out of the water. It's cheap, folks...so don't hang about.

There's so much I want to tell you about but there are so many bargains that I can't list them all. This Bead Animal T-Shirt* is a nice find. It comes in a choice of two colours: Pastel Pink or Yellow. It was £12.99 and is now only £4.99.

Tartan Skirts* are ever so cute on little ones, get this one for just £9.99 reduced from £19.99. Also on trend are these Skinny Zip Trousers* for only £6.99 reduced from £22.99. What a bargain!

Mango have certainly managed to inject their trademark look into their childrenswear, without making it look too grown up. I have to admit if I had a daughter my debit card would be melting right now.

Delivery is FREE when you spend over £30, as are returns, spend less and it'll cost you £2.95. Collect in store is FREE and is generally a good option.

Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie The Frog £12.49 Delivered @ Amazon/Argos

Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie The Frog £12.49 Delivered @ Amazon/Argos

Two out of my three boys absolutely detest sleeping in darkness so they need a night light. My youngest has about ten different Cloud B toys but the Summer Infant Slumber Buddies toys are much cheaper and do the same thing really. The Frankie the Frog Slumber Buddy is just £12.49 at Amazon just now, including FREE Super Saver Delivery. It seems Amazon have price matched Argos as they have reduced this Frog Night Light to just £12.49. The very same Slumber Buddy would cost you £24.99 from Toys R Us.

The Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie the Frog is a nice soft green colour and is suitable for a boy or a girl. It is suitable to buy for any age as you don't need to give it directly to the child. If your child is over three then you could put it in bed with them as a comfort, but I can't imagine the plastic bit being too comfortable to cuddle.

Basically the Slumber Buddy projects moons and stars onto your child's ceiling in three different colours and can play three lullabies, two nature sounds, a heartbeat. There's a 15 minute auto shut-off too which means the batteries aren't getting drained all night.

You can reserve and collect Frankie the Frog for FREE from your local Argos but if you want delivery it's £3 so you'd be better off buying it from Amazon in that case.

VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set £15 @ Tesco Direct

VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set £15 @ Tesco Direct

The Toot Toot collection is a bestseller for VTech, and I am definitely a fan. I have found a right good play set from Tesco Direct selling much, much less than elsewhere. The VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set is reduced from £30 down to just £15. It is £43 at Very, £39.99 at Argos and £32 at Debenhams. Once the word is out that Tesco are selling this popular Toot Toot set, I expect it to sell out very quickly.

The VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set is suitable for children aged one years old to five years old. This particular Toot Toot set would be a great Firth Birthday present for a little nipper.

It features seven SmartPoint™ locations that play phrases and tunes and has two different modes of play, as well as three different interactive animal buttons. You get the Toot Toot Rhino included and you can buy other animals to add to it.

You can Click and Collect the VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set for FREE from your local Tesco Direct or pay £3 to have it delivered to your front door.
