Easter Chick Long Sleeved Bib £2.50 Delivered @ Jojo Maman Bebe

Easter Chick Long Sleeved Bib £2.50 Delivered @ Jojo Maman Bebe

If you have a child, you will totally understand my frustration of when you dress your little darling all pretty or smartly and then they coat themselves in bright orange baby food or the likes. Best thing I have ever learnt as a parent is to buy long sleeved bibs! They cover your child much better than regular round the neck numbers. I have found one at Jojo Maman Bebe and it's reduced to just £2.50 from £8. Would I pay eight pound for a bib? I paid ten for one very similar so £2.50 is a great price. Plus you get FREE delivery on orders from Jojo Maman Bebe.

These should be called stress saver bibs, because they do stop you from freaking out every time baby is in the highchair. This particular Easter Chick one from Jojo Maman Bebe is splashproof.

What about crumbs? Kids make lots of crumbs. This Long Sleeved Bib features a crumb pocket, it won't catch all of the crumbs but does catch a LOT.

The design on this Long Sleeved Bib is very spring like and is ideal for Easter as it's covered in chicks. It's pretty unisex too as it's a good mixture of colours.

Children's Nightwear Reductions @ Asda George

Yesterday, we gave you the heads-up that Asda George would have to 50% off selected lines starting today. I have had a look and I must admit it's not an amazing selection. However, there are some great reductions in Children's Nightwear. Many include our kids' favourite characters like Fireman Sam and Disney Princess. There's not so much for boys as there is for girls but it's worth a look.

Here's what I found to be great bargains at Asda George:

You can collect the Children's Nightwear items with Click and Collect, which means you pick up your order for FREE from your local Asda store or pay £2.95 home delivery.

Dairy Free/No Added Sugar Easter Treats Buy One Get One Half Price @ Holland and Barrett

If your little one is dairy free, you'll know how hard it can be when everyone is going for Easter Egg hunts and the world is plastered full of Easter Eggs everywhere. Fortunately, Holland and Barrett have you covered.

As I said, Holland and Barrett have a nice selection of Easter chocolate both instore and online.  What makes it a bargain though is that they're buy one get one half price,

For anyone who is on a dairy-free diet there is a nice little selection of Easter chocolate at Holland and Barrett (also available online) which are currently on their' buy one get one half-price on everything' deal.
I'm told some of this chocolate is quite tasty but I personally remain unconvinced - only bought them as a gift so that allergic child isn't left out of the chocolate-blitz of Easter!

These ones sound the most appealing: Moo Free Orange Egg* just £4.99 contains dairy free chocolate with crunchy orange chips in it. Booja Booja Hazelnut Crunch Truffle Egg* is £9.99 and it's gluten and dairy free. The Moo Free Honeycomb Egg* sounds to die for as it has crunchy honeycomb pieces scattered in the dairy free chocolate shell. It's £4.99.

Spend £20 or more for FREE delivery or pay £1.99 if you are spending less.

Lollypop Man Banned From Giving Children High-Fives

 Lollypop Man Banned From Giving Children High-Fives

When I read in the newspaper that Lollypop Man or Crossing Assistant (yeah, that's what some Councils call them) has been banned from giving 'high-fives' to children I was a bit disappointed. Why oh why do we have to go to such extremes nowadays? Apparently, Nkosana Mdikane was previously commended by the council whom has applied this ban. So, what's the big deal about him giving 'High-Fives'?

West Dumbartonshire Council are said to have stated that:

that lollipop men “must remain static” to maintain “a barrier between pupils and traffic” with one hand on their stick and the other arm stretched outward.

This means that Mr Mdikane must not dance or touch the children's hand whilst he works. I am sure you agree with me that teaching children to cross the road in a sensible manner is very important but I can't help feeling like Mr Mdikane should be able to interact and encourage the kids to actually use him to cross the road.

When I was young we got to know our Lollypop Ladies really well as we saw them on a daily basis. Imagine how sad that would have been if they hardly acknowledge me.

Is this Health and Safety madness or is it perfectly just that the Council have banned the Hi-Fives.

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

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!
