Leap Frog My Own Leaptop £9.38 With Code (£12.33 Delivered) @ Asda Direct

This is a pretty nice price for the Leapfrog 'My Own Leaptop' if you're thinking of treating a special little someone to one of these for Christmas. It's £14.00 at Asda right now which is already a few quid cheaper than elsewhere online right now, but when you add the voucher code LEAP33 at the basket checkout stage you'll get the price down to just £9.38.

Leapfrog toys always seem to be super popular with parents and kids alike, and this one is suitable for tots aged two years and older.

This has four different learning modes including letter sounds and names of animals plus games and singing, and it's billed as an age-appropriate way to help your tot get to grips with basic computer literacy skills. There's even an option to have the Leaptop spell you child's name.

I know my daughter would absolutely love having her own keypad to bash away on when she's watching me on mine, and something like this might even buy me a few extra minutes to catch up on emails before she starts trying to get her mitts on my laptop!

Delivery is £2.95 or you can order it online using the link above, but opt to pick it up from your nearest branch of Asda without paying any delivery charges.

My Little Pony Pinkie Pie Cutie Mark £12.50 (Was £25) @ Tesco Direct

It's bargains galore on toys over at Tesco right now, but how do you like the sound of 50% off the My Little Pony Pinkie Pie light-up cuddly toy? Pop over to Tesco Direct, then, where you can grab one of these cuddly characters for just £12.50 instead of £25.

Apparently these sell out of stock quicker than you can sing the My Little Pony theme tune so you'll want to gallop (sorry) on over to Tesco now if you want to nab one.

These My Little Pony soft toys are pink, cute and cuddly and they sing and light up when you squeeze their tummy. What else is there to say?! They're not suitable for children under three years of age, however.

Standard delivery costs £3.00 or you can order one online by clicking the link above, but opt to use the free click and collect service to pick yours up from your nearest branch of Tesco. Simples!

Avengers Assemble Back Pack Gift Set £3.50 @ Tesco Direct

Avengers Assemble Back Pack Gift Set £3.50 @ Tesco Direct

The Avengers Assemble Back Pack Gift Set is now only £3.50, from Tesco Direct. It had previously been £7 and even at that it's reasonable. I can't say I have seen this anywhere else. An ideal gift for any Marvel fan.

With this Marvel Avengers Assemble Back Pack Gift Set you get a back pack style wash bag to hold your toiletries in. No kidding my other half would love this for himself! You also get a huge 400ml bottle of Avengers Bath & Shower Gel and a 200ml bottle of 2 in 1 Avengers Shampoo and Conditioner.

This is certainly one way to get the kids to clean themselves. My eldest son is a right soap-dodger at times, and trust me if it wasn't for toiletry sets like this, he'd be a right smelly toe rag. I am not sure what superheroes smell like so I am unsure of the scent, however, I am sure it will be completely inoffensive.

You can click and collect the Marvel Avengers Assemble Back Pack Toiletry Gift Set from your local Tesco store for FREE or pay £3 for delivery.

Christmas Duvets For Kids £10 @ ASDA

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 October, 2014 at 9:30 am

Christmas Duvets For Kids £10 @ ASDAASDA have a range of Christmas Duvets available for kids, and they're just £10, so stocks on these go fast, fast, fast! Store collection is free, or you can have them home delivered for £2.95.

There's a Christmas Pug duvet, and a gorgeous Christmas Pin Up, which is also available in double and king for a little bit more (£12/£14).  The Snow Scene Duvet* for a cot is just £9, and Little Miss Duvet Set* is £10 too.

I guess since you're only using these for a few weeks of the year, you wouldn't want to spend a fortune on them, so these are ideal.

You could also go for something a little less Christmas and a little more Winter, like the Ski Scene Duvet Coveror the Photographic Polar Bear Duvet Set*.

Of course there's always good old Elsa and Anna to fall back on, but they're up to £18.

A nice way to build up to Christmas, methinks?

Vtech Sofia's Tablet £13.22 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 October, 2014 at 9:28 pm

Vtech Sofia's Tablet £13.22 @ AmazonAmazon have a great price on the VTech Sofia Tablet, reduced to £13.22 instead of £22.99. It qualifies for free delivery, so a nice little saving.  The Tablet is £22.99 at Argos and £23 at Boots.

This little tablet is a good gift for little people. It is just the right size for their hands, and teaches a range of areas, like language, vocabulary, phonics, music and more.

There are character buttons to hear responses, and pattern & memory activities that help develop logical thinking. The QWERTY keyboard promotes typing skills and the classical style melodies and magical sounds add to the enjoyment. 

The design is durable and there's volume control and automatic shut-off for long lasting play. 

The manufacturers description says these are good for kids from 24 months, but it doesn't say how long it's likely to keep a child's attention. Hopefully you'll get a good few years of play out of it!

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

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

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.
