Free Printable Disney Stickers @ Disney Rewards

by Luschka van Onselen in Freebies on 21 October, 2014 at 8:14 pm

Free Printable Disney Stickers @ Disney RewardsDisney Rewards have these free printables that can be downloaded and printed off as much as you  like. As one clever cookie suggested, you can print it onto sticky paper and have DIY room decor, or stickers for the kids for one of the million things kids like stickers for.

The freebie consists of 2 A4 pages, featuring some of the most loved Disney characters, including Tinkerbell, Simba, Grumpy the Dwarf, and I think Dopey the Dwarf too. There's also the majority of the Mickey Mouse Club House crew and a few others too.

I love the idea of printing these on sticky paper, but regular paper will do fine too. Print them off and stick them on a straw or lollipop stick for stick puppets too. Lots of rainy day fun, and you don't even have to be crafty.

Roadsterz 6v Electric Ride-On Quad HALF PRICE (Was £70) @ Halfords With Free Delivery

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 4:15 pm

Roadsterz 6v Electric Ride-On Quad HALF PRICE (Was £70) @ Halfords With Free Delivery

Hands up who'd like a quad bike for Christmas? Sadly this one is a tad too little for me, but I know a few little people who would love it. The Roadsterz 6v Electric Ride-On Quad has been reduced from £70 to just £35 at Halfords right now. Delivery is free too, since you're spending more than £30.

Also try entering the voucher code B15BK04 at the basket checkout stage and you should get the price down even further to £31.50.

Available in pink or green, this super cool quad comes with a rechargeable battery (the charger is also included) which keeps it powered for 60-90 minutes, and it can reach top speeds of 3km/ph. Prettty nifty.

Suitable for a maximum weight of 30kg, these quad bikes have a foot-operated accelerator, chunky wheels and easy grip handles, and they take 8-10 hours to charge. So pretty much the same as kids, then.

Best of all, this comes with free delivery as standard when you spend £30 or more at Halfords. Or if you prefer, you can order one online using the link above and opt to collect it at your nearest branch of Halfords, also with no additional charge.

Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton Gives Birth At Home In A Birthing Pool

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Celebaby on 21 October, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Atomic Kitten's Natasha Hamilton Gives Birth At Home In A Birthing Pool

It seems that Natasha Hamilton - formerly a singer with girl band Atomic Kitten - is the latest celebrity mum to discover the joys of a water birth.

The singer recently gave birth to a baby girl, a sister to big brothers Harry and Josh. Little Ella Rose was born at home in a birthing pool, according to OK! magazine who ran an exclusive interview with Natasha and her boyfriend, Ritchie Neville, of boy band 5ive.

Ritchie told the magazine that his daughter's birth was the best night of his life and a moment that he will treasure forever. All together now: Ahhh.

Baby Ella was born in an inflatable birthing pool in the couple's living room, and Natasha says both parents shed a few tears when their little girl arrived.

I planned for a water birth with my first baby but he clearly had other ideas and was well on his way into the world before we had time to fill the pool. But I've only ever heard fabulous things about water births and I'll admit to being a teeny bit sad that I never did get to experience one. Still, not sad enough to warrant doing it all over again, I hasten to add.

Did you have a water birth and / or a home birth? We'd love to hear all about your experience if so - you can join the conversation on Twitter or on our Facebook page. Did the water play a part in pain relief, and did your partner take the plunge too, or stick to dry land?

Spend £10 On Amazon And Get £2 Free On Appstore For AndroidThis offer does pretty much what it says on the title: when you spend £10 on Amazon, they'll give you £2 to spend on the Appstore for Android. It may not sound huge, but it's technically a 20% 'freebie'.

Between 20-26 October 2014, spend £10 in a single order on item(s) dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk and receive a £2 promotional code to spend in the Amazon Appstore. When you've placed your order, your credit will be applied to your account automatically and you'll receive a confirmation email.

It's worth noting that Amazon apps can only be used on an Android device. Apps downloaded from the Amazon Appstore are not available on iPhones, iPads, Blackberries, Windows Phones or any other non-Android device.

I normally just go for free apps, unless I know for sure it's something I'll use a lot, but there are a couple I've thought about and this sounds like a good excuse to go or it!

Massive Toy Sale Up To 50% Off @ Smyths

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 11:08 am

Massive Toy Sale Up To 50% Off @ SmythsThere's up to 50% off toys online at Smyths right now, with some great bargains to be had.

There are a lot of toys in the sale, but not all of them have a lot off. A few where the savings are great are:

The Disney Princess Carriage Toddler Bed* is £145, down from £199. Argos have it for £179, so this is definitely the best price I can find it at. Perfect for a little girl's room, this one.

There are also Leapfrog LeapPad Ultra's on sale for £59.99, reduced from over £80, which in itself was a whole lot better than the £119 Boots is selling it for! You can get those in Pink* or Green*.

I know it's an up to 50% off sale, but the majority of stuff seems to have up to 25% off, really.

Do let us know if you manage to grab a bargain though!

My Little Pony Twilight Sparkles Rainbow Kingdom £25.99 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 10:41 am

My Little Pony Twilight Sparkles Rainbow Kingdom £25.99 @ AmazonAmazon are selling My Little Pony Twilight Sparkle's Rainbow Kingdom for £25.99, reduced from £39.99. It's currently selling at that price at Toys R Us, and £29.99 at Argos.

The reviews on this product are pretty divided between adults and children. The children seem to love it - no surprises there - while the adults don't think it's particularly well made, and that it falls apart too easily for their liking. What that says to me is that my kids will love it, and I'll buy some superglue with it!

The castle comes with a special edition Princess Twilight Sparkle figure. Little ones can dress her with shoes, skirt, tiara and a bracelet.

It also comes with secret keys that 'unlock surprises' and the pony can sit in the slide car and go down the castle's slide.

It's definitely one of those things that's for fans, and not their parents, but I know for certain my kids would love it!

Kids Karrimor Sierra Jackets Pink £6.99/£10.98 Delivered @ Sports Direct

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 10:05 am

Kids Karrimor Sierra Jackets Pink £6.99/£10.98 Delivered @ Sports DirectSports Direct are selling kids Karrimor Sierra Jackets in pink for £6.99, reduced from an apparent £34.99. There's a £3.99 delivery fee if you spend under £100, totaling £10.98, which is still a good price.

I have been trying to scale down my kids' wardrobe (because there's enough in there to fill a shop!), but when it came to rain wear, I realise that one just isn't enough. If it's not wet, or somewhere drying, it's on, so I almost feel like they need three winter coats and rain jackets, to have any chance to stay dry!

The Karrimor Sierra Jacket Infants will keep you warm and protected from any harsh weather elements thanks to Weathertite fabric that is breathable, waterproof and windproof. This kids waterproof jacket is also designed with a fold away hood and storm guard collar for added protection from the weather. 

Available in sizes from 2 - 6 years, there doesn't seem to be any limits on stock just now.

There's also a blue jacket available, but it's price changes by size, starting at £8.50 and going up to £11.50.

LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Violet/Scout Book Pal £12.50 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 8:45 am

LeapFrog LeapReader Junior Violet/Scout Book Pal £12.50 @ AmazonAmazon are selling the Leapfrog LeapReader Junior Violet or Scout book pal for £12. 50. Argos currently have it for £24.99 and Boots have it for £20, so £12.50 delivered is great.

My daughter has had the LeapFrog LeapReader since she was little, and I must say that it is hardy, robust, and beautifully designed for little hands to hold.

If you're not familiar with the Junior LeapReader, it is basically a book reader, giving kids audio to the specially printed pages. All they have to do is touch the LeapReader to a page, and the reader will 'read out' the story, as well as the surroundings, and sometimes with sound effects.

The LeapReader has to have the books stored on it, and can store up to five at a time, allowing children to move between them, and giving you the opportunity to give them 'fresh' books from time to time. The LeapReader comes with a book included, but there are over 15 books to choose from.

Each LeapReader Junior book introduces a different preschool skill—such as the alphabet, counting or social play—through 24 playful activities and more than 150 audio responses. Open-ended questions and fun sound effects encourage children to take charge, as they touch any part of any page to bring words, pictures or activities to life!

Each book also has learning themes, like the included sampler book teaches: time & patience, daily routines, and plant life cycles and is appropriate for children aged 1 to 4 years.

Chicco Pocket Snack Booster In Green £19.99 @ Toys R Us

by Nada in Deals on 20 October, 2014 at 9:16 pm

Chicco Pocket Snack Booster In Green £19.99 @ Toys R Us

The Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat has £10 off at the moment, from £29.99 down to £19.99. This is a transportable booster seat, that can be taken ANYWHERE. £19.99 is decent as they are £29.99 in Boots. I have been on the lookout for one of these and this Chicco one stands out. I would be more than happy to pay below twenty quid for this.

What can the Chicco Pocket Snack Booster Seat do? This is one of the handiest bits of baby equipment you can have. A lot of us parents are restricted with room and there is no option to have a full size high chair. This will fit to most chairs, so that your baby can be included in family dinnertimes. I have seen these used at local parks in the summer attached to deckchairs, not sure I would trust a flimsy thing like a deckchair to mount it on.

It folds easily and can be taken along to friends' or families' houses to be used at mealtimes. This is suitable for babies aged six months and over, until approximately three years old. The tray has three different positions and the seat itself is height adjustable.

Click and collect the Chicco Pocket Booster Seat in green from your local Toys R Us store or pay £4.95 to have it delivered to your home.

Up To Half Price On Selected Children's Toiletries Starting at £1 @ Tesco Direct

Tesco Direct have up to half price on selected toiletry gift sets. There's a fair amount for the kids and they would make great stocking fillers. Items start at just £1 and there's lot of different characters available, like Disney Princess, Thomas and Friends and Peppa Pig. My children like to give two school friends a present every year and items like these are just the ticket.

Here's the bargains we have found... The Thomas & Friends Bath Time Clock* is only £1, and would provide lots of fun and learning. I don't know about you but bathtime is the only time I get my children's full attention.

The Disney Princess Fragrance and Hair Gift Set* is now reduced from £5 down to £2.50 and includes 20ml bottle of eau de toilette, a comb and some hair bobbles.

Peppa Pig fans can be catered for with these Mummy and Daddy Pig soaps* at only £1.24 each. They are cute and might just do the trick in encouraging soap dodgers to wash.

You can collect your toiletry items for FREE from your local Tesco store or pay £3 for delivery.

Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Patterns

Free Halloween Pumpkin Carving Patterns

It's that time of year when we bombard the supermarkets for all things orange and black. Last year, we left it a bit late and ended up with some rather scabby, greenish pumpkins to carve. Every year I see Halloween growing in this country, and I LOVE it! It's yet another thing that delights the children. Sitting down to do pumpkin carving with your children is fun, providing they don't ruin your intricate design of a bat fasting on a fair maidens neck.

Get a helping hand and have the best Jack O'Lanterns with these FREE Pumpkin Carving Stencils that we have found for you. There's a few different sites offering them, all with different themes.

Fresh Family Meals are offering the chance to download some really cool children's character ones, here. Over two hundred in fact so you are sure to find one to please.

More spooky ones can be downloaded from Zombie Pumpkins, here and Orange and Black Pumpkins, here. For Disney themed ones, the best places are: Mommy Musings, here and Parentinginkky, here.

Pumpkin stencils are FREE from The Spreadit.com, over here, and UK site Party Delights.

Maternity Jeans £14.99 (Was £29.99) @ H&M

Maternity Jeans £14.99 (Was £29.99) @ H&M

I'm a big fan of the maternity range at H&M and particularly love their skinny fit maternity jeans. And guess what - they're down from £29.99 to just £14.99 right now! For three days only there's up to 50% off on selected items at H&M.

Click here to order your Mama Slim maternity jeans from H&M*

These are a dark denim blue so they'll work for smart looks as well as for a casual vibe. They're skinny fit jeans and have 2% elastane in them, which means a bit of comfy stretch and give. (There's also a light denim blue on sale the same price, though.)

H&M have all sizes from 8-20 in stock right now but I'd imagine these will fly off the virtual shelves at this price, so snap them up quick before your size runs out.

My favourite feature though is the wide over-the-bump panel of soft, stretchy ribbing at the waist. I loved these jeans so much that I was genuinely sad to have to give them up at the end of my pregnancy. In fact I tried to carry on wearing them for way too long, and even considered working on a beer belly just so I wouldn't have to part with them.

Ooh, and I've just noticed that these maternity jeggings are down from £14.99 to £8.99 right now, too.

Delivery is £3.90 from H&M and you should receive your order within 4-6 working days.

But if you're like me and find a large part of your credit card bill features the Disney Store, especially in the run up to Christmas, there's still plenty of choice and well 20% off isn't one to miss if you've had your eye on something or were hoping to find a discount voucher.

Medieval/Princess Wooden Castle £35 @ Wilko

by Nada in Deals on 20 October, 2014 at 1:05 pm

Medieval/Princess Wooden Castle £35 @ Wilko

These Wooden Castles are super for just £35 from Wilko. You can choose from the Princess one or the Medieval one. I saw these and immediately thought of sharing. These sort of wooden play sets are ultra popular with you guys and you have asked to see more, so here they are. They are available in some Wilko stores too.

Both the Medieval and the Princess Wooden Castles are suitable for children aged three years old and above. The Princess castle is aimed at little girls and is very pink. It comes with a play mat and instruction manual, as I think it's self-assembly.

You get a wee bit more with the Medieval castle, as it comes with flags, a fully working drawbridge, a battle ram, ladder, play mat and a trebuchet (with two balls), which I think is a cannon. This one is by far my favourite as I think it is way more detailed than the Princess one.

You can collect the Princess or Medieval Wooden Castle for FREE from your local Wilko store, or pay £3.50 to have it delivered to your front door.

Heads Up! The Sainsbury's Up To Half Price Toy Sale Starts THIS WEEK!

by Nada in Deals on 20 October, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Heads Up! The Sainsbury's Up To Half Price Toy Sale Starts THIS WEEK!

We have it on good authority that the Up to Half Price Toy Sale starts this week. We have nothing concrete about what day it starts but my buddy in Sainsbury's reckons it is Wednesday and that MOST items INSTORE will be half price. Not everything of course will have the full 50% off, and if we go by recent years, you are better off nipping to your biggest nearest Sainsbury's store. When sales like this are online, you are battling with a lot of internet traffic to get that must have item.

Our guess, and it's only a guess, that toys like Barbie, Nerf, Peppa Pig and Mega Bloks will have the full 50% off but more popular items like Disney Frozen will have the bare minimum off. We hope we are wrong, and I know it's hard to believe but sometimes we are.

Sainsbury's Toy Sale normally lasts a week, but all the toys go first so be aware of that. What I am hoping for is that for once they will include a console or at least console games in it. Their sale tends to be a lot better than the other supermarkets and we are looking forward to it. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog, as we will share anything else we find out about this toy event ASAP.

Xbox 360 500GB Special Edition Blue Bundle £179.99 @ Argos

A lot of you may be looking for an Xbox One, however if like me your children aren't very old, then you may wish to buy them the Xbox 360. It is one of the most successful gaming consoles of all time. My boys have one between them but the fighting is unreal, I am on the lookout for a second one and this is just the ticket. It's has 500GB storage and a special edition in the colour blue for just £179.99. This includes two games FREE but please check the age restrictions on these before allowing your children to play them. By the looks of it, it is sixteen years old.

The Xbox 360 may have a brand new brother console but he is in no way as popular yet, and there's still longevity in this one. You get one month FREE of Xbox Live, you will need this as it links your children up with others and they just love to scream and shout with their mates, I can assure you of that. The two games included are Toys Solders and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. You also get one controller and one headset.

Reserve and collect the Xbox 360 500GB Special Edition Blue Bundle from your local Argos for FREE or pay £3.95 for delivery. Argos are giving away a £10 voucher when you spend £100 or more, so you should also get one of those with your purchase.
