Sale On Children's Pyjamas Plus An Extra 24% Off: Starting From £3.65 @ BHS

Quick! Get over to BHS now! They have a sale on plus until midnight tonight you will receive an extra 24% off. Wowzers! Childrens pyjamas start from £3.65 and are selling out VERY fast.

BHS are up for sale and I am secretly hoping that Sir Philip Green gets someone to buy it. Shopping in BHS as a child is one of my very first memories. They are a British institution really.

Here's some girls' pyjamas that we reckon are an absolute steal and half: Girls Minnie Mouse Three Piece Pyjama Set* was £20 today's price is just from £7.60. Girls White Dressing Gown* today's price is only £4.92.

For the boys: Bear Dress-up Onesie* now £3.65.

Like I said items are selling fast and no wonder, they are practically giving them away. The discounts are huge and you have the potential to save £££'s.

Want to skip on the delivery fee of £3.95? Opt to Collect from your closest BHS store which is FREE. the extra 24% off is across the whole site but does exclude wedding items, which is a bummer.

Scooting To School: Love It Or Loathe It?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 29 January, 2015 at 8:33 pm

Scooting To School: Love It Or Loathe It?

Do your kids scoot to school? Or are you one of those parents who think scooters don't belong on the school run?

It certainly seems to me as if half the kids in my town have stopped walking anywhere, and resolutely rely on two (or three) wheels instead.

And according to a recent survey, scooting to school really is growing in popularity.

BBC News reports:

According to a survey of 75,000 children by the transport charity Sustrans, the proportion of UK pupils regularly scooting or skating to school went up by more than half between 2013 and 2014, from 9.3% to 14.3%.

That accounts for all those little people on scooters who we routinely trip over as we fight to make it to the school gates, then.

But - and perhaps I'm at fault here for not buying the 'right' sort of scooter - I just can't see the appeal. Indeed, my lads have had a couple of scooters now, but they've never really taken to them. They're much more keen on riding their bikes, whereas scooters - a bit like roller skates - hold their interest for a day or two and then quickly fall out of favour.

Am I alone in this, or is there some sort of must-have scooter that I've yet to clap eyes on?

What's the real appeal of scooters for kids, from a parent's perspective?

Is The Youngest Child Always The Funniest?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 29 January, 2015 at 8:07 pm

Is The Youngest Child Always The Funniest?

Is your youngest child the funniest person in your family? The answer's likely to be yes, according to new research by YouGov.

It seems to be a commonly-held view that the oldest and youngest kids in a family are often like chalk and cheese, and this new research certainly seems to back that up.

And that's not all. The oldest child in a family is likely to consider themselves more responsible than their siblings, too.

The Metro reports:

‘Younger siblings, on the other hand, are more likely to say they are more funny (46 per cent compared to 36 per cent of elder siblings), more easy going and more relaxed.’

... The research concludes: ‘But undoubtedly there are family forces at work – parental attention soon shifts onto new arrivals, and first borns may have to learn the ropes themselves.

What do you make of this? If you have more than one child, are there noticeable differences in personality between them? And if so, what do you think is the cause of that?

Is it just that older kids have had longer to find their feet in life and so feel more 'grown-up' than younger siblings, or is there some truth in the idea that the youngest in the family gets babied and smiled at more than the others?!

We'd love to hear your thoughts on this over on our Facebook page...

HEADS UP: 'Suddenly' Perfume & Gifts £3.99, or 2 for £7, from 5th Feb @ Lidl

HEADS UP: 'Suddenly' Perfume & Gifts £3.99, or 2 for £7, from 5th Feb @ Lidl

If you haven't heard of it before, Suddenly: Madame Glamour is a perfume made by Lidl. Doesn't sound good so far, does it? However, it has a near identical fragrance to Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle, and when it comes back for sale at Lidl there is always a rush to stock up.

There have been many reports about this Lidl's perfume, including this one by The Independent, claiming that the scents smell so similar that many cannot tell the difference. The obvious difference is the price, with Chanel's being around £66 more expensive than the £3.99 bottle of Suddenly.

If you are already a fan then you will be happy to hear that the 50ml bottles of Suddenly, the gift sets with Body Lotion and Shower Gel, and the scented candle are all due back in store for Valentines. They are all priced at £3.99, or you can mix and match any 2 for £7, which is even more of a bargain!

You can always hint for your Valentine gift (this is so cheap you deserve chocs and flowers too!) or just stock up for yourselves.

The dregs have all but gone from my long treasured Coco Mademoiselle, so this has got to be worth a try!

The Cat Hair Accessory!

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 29 January, 2015 at 7:28 pm

The Cat Hair Accessory!

Before you ask, no you can't buy this in the shops. Sorry!

This rather unusual cat hair accessory was created as a one off item by a Japanese designer Campanella, purely for her own use, but since she was spotted wearing it at a design exhibition she has been flooded with enquiries.

So although she has no intentions of making and selling these according to her blog, we were wondering whether there might be some copycat versions appearing in shops soon.

Maybe we should pass it on to Claire's and see what they think?

So, would you wear one of these? We'd love to know what you think over on our Facebook page.

Julia Donaldson Books: £4 each with Free Delivery @ Tesco

Tesco have a great offer on loads of Julia Donaldson books at the moment, with lots of her best selling books reduced down from £6.99 to £4, and with Free Delivery as an added extra you don't even need to go to collect them!

Julia Donaldson is the award winning children's author of 'The Gruffalo', and her stories are well known and loved by children around the world.

If it's pre-schoolers you are buying for then the Acorn Wood Series of 'Rabbit's Nap', 'Fox's Socks' and 'Postman Bear' are a good place to start as they have simple rhymes and lift the flap surprises too.

For slightly older children there's 'What The Ladybird Heard', 'The Singing Mermaid' and 'The Princess and The Wizard' with their touchy feely sparkly bits to spot on each page.

Favourites like 'The Gruffalo', 'Room On The Broom' and my favourite 'Tiddler' can be read and enjoyed by children of all ages, and are stories that I really enjoy when these are chosen for the bedtime story.

There are a total of 16 different titles in this offer, although 2 are showing as currently out of stock, but that still gives you lots of titles to choose from, and every one of them is wonderful, I promise. We have them all. :)

Jump In! The Ball Pit For Grown Ups.

by Lisa Hayes in Freebies on 29 January, 2015 at 4:58 pm

Jump In! The Ball Pit For Grown Ups.

Why should the kids have all the fun at the play gym while we have to sit and watch? It's not fair is it? Well, if you are around London in the next couple of weeks then how about a visit to a ball pit for grown ups?

The Pearlfisher Gallery has an art installation called "Jump In!" which "promotes the transformative power of play". To you and me it's a great big room filled with thousands and thousands of white balls that you can play in!

It's free, so if you want to have a play you can contact them via their website to reserve a place, and they will donate £1 to their partner charity 'Right To Play' for every visitor.

It was supposed to close at the end of January, but it looks like they have extended it until February 13th. Early Valentines Day treat maybe? We're booking a coach for the PlayPennies day out now! ;)

Disney Infinity 2.0 Playset Packs £20 @ Amazon

Disney Infinity 2.0 Playset Packs £20 @ Amazon

If you know children who were lucky enough to get Disney Infinity 2.0 for Christmas then it's like the gift that never ends, because they keep on bringing out new figures to match new Disney films and characters.  Never again will you have to ask "So, what does so and so want for their birthday?"

These Playset packs have been reduced in Argos (along with tons of other things we are telling you about) to £20.49, but Amazon have trumped them by dropping their price lower and these can now be yours for £20 with free delivery.

There are 3 sets at this price - Spiderman, The Avengers and Guardians Of The Galaxy. Each set comes with two character figures and one game accessory.

All three sets are on the same link, and you need to choose which one by clicking on the box where it says 'Edition' and choosing your character set.

This is the cheapest these playsets have been, so we're hoping that more will be dropping in price soon. There have just been new characters released, so older ones may soon be getting cheaper, and we'll let you know if we see any bargains.

Frozen Pop Up Storage now £7.99 @ Argos

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 January, 2015 at 2:10 pm

Frozen Pop Up Storage now £7.99 @ Argos

This Frozen Pop Up Toy Storage box is £15 just about everywhere except for Argos, who have just dropped the price down to £7.99. The £15 price tag looks pretty steep for what it is, but at £7.99 this is a good buy, as looking at the dimensions and picture it's larger than I thought.

It measures 39cm x 66cm x 28cm, so should hold a fair few toys, and it can also be folded flat again if you need to store it away.

Argos even think that it's the key to getting your kids to tidy up after themselves!:

Perfect for storing all your little lady's favourite wands and toys, she'll love popping her toys away at bedtime.

The Frozen Pop Up Toy Storage is available for Home Delivery and Reserve and Collect, and seems to be fairly widely in stock from the areas I have checked.

Transformers Stomp & Chomp Grimlock with Bumblebee Figure: £25 @ John Lewis

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 January, 2015 at 1:29 pm

Transformers Stomp & Chomp Grimlock with Bumblebee Figure: £25 @ John Lewis

This toy was one of the top toys this Christmas, but with an RRP of £89.99 and most stores selling it at £60 or so I'm not sure how many kids actually got this under the Christmas tree. If the Transformers Stomp & Chomp Grimlock is still on your children's wish list then this is the time to grab one, as John Lewis have them for sale at a fabulously cheap £25!

What makes this an even better offer is that exclusively to John Lewis you also get an extra Bumblebee figure with Grimlock too!

This is a whopping robot more than 50cm tall who transforms into a terrifying dinosaur with chomping jaws and light up eyes. It's recommended for ages 5 and above, and is unsuitable for under 3s due to the small parts.

I wish my son was into these toys as I would be snapping one up to put away for his birthday at this price. I'm trying to think who I could get it for!

Home delivery will add £3, or you can use the free click and collect service from John Lewis or your local Waitrose.

There's plenty of stock at the moment but these will fly off those virtual shelves when word gets out, so get them while you can!

Thanks to mobjw @ HUKD.

Under £10 Children's Clothing @ Matalan

Kids needing clothes? Now is the time to buy them. Matalan have an Under £10 Event on just now and included in that are selected Children's Clothing. Items start at just £1 so think of the amount of clothes you can get for next to nothing. If like me you have an abundance of kids, then you need get over to the Matalan site, like NOW!

Matalan tend to be pretty reasonably priced when it comes to children's clothing so when I saw this offer I just had to scope it out. There's 633 items to choose from all in all and plenty of boys and girls.

This Disney Minnie Mouse Dress Set* is only £10 in size 3-6 months and would look absolutely adorable. £8 can get you the Boys Three Piece Cardigan, Trousers and T-Shirt Set*.

There's a right muddle of items, and not all are on offer or reduced but are still under £10 and still a good buy like this Girls Stripe Print Smock Dress and Leggings Set* for only £8 to £9.

My Little World Wishes Pink Or Blue Moses Basket £20 @ Very

My Little World Wishes Pink Or Blue Moses Basket £20 @ Very

If you are pregnant then a massive Congratulations from us! You may be on the look out for affordable nursery items. If that is the case then this is the deal for you. Very have halved the price of the My Little World Wishes Moses Basket to just £20. That's a great price for a Moses Basket. There's a choice of blue or pink but unfortunately there's not a neutral coloured one for those of you that don't know the sex of your baby.

If we are honest, this Little World Wishes Moses Basket looks like many other on the market but this one is £20. Moses Baskets are pretty much all made the same.

The basket itself is constructed by woven palm. It has carry handles so it's easy to transport from room to room. Although, I don't think I'd do that with baby in it. You can never be too careful.

The exterior is nicely decorated and the look of it depends on what colour you opt for. You can remove and machine wash all of the linen. You get a mattress included too.

Save on the £3.95 postage charge and opt for Collect+ which means you can pick a local shop to pick your order up for FREE.

Update : Tesco Product Recall On Tesco Double Strength Apple & Blackcurrant Juice

Update : Tesco Product Recall On Tesco Double Strength Apple & Blackcurrant Juice

Since we posted THIS blog yesterday, lots of you have been in touch expressing concern and asking if there’s been any updates from Tesco.

The Tesco Double Strength Apple & Blackcurrant Juice has since been withdrawn from the Tesco grocery site  and Tesco did indeed release a statement yesterday afternoon, confirming the juice has been withdrawn from sale.

This was their official response :

Update : Tesco Product Recall On Tesco Double Strength Apple & Blackcurrant Juice

So what is Dimethyl Disulphide? You can read about it in detail over at SEPA  or here on Wikipedia but most parents who've been in touch with us only want to know if this could have been responsible for their children's vomiting. Tesco assures us not, wisely advising via their contact centre anyone feeling ill should seek medical advice.

Concerned parents over on our Facebook page have been asking why their bottles smelled like "sewage" as opposed to the "garlic" smell Tesco have stated above and that's something we can't answer I'm afraid.

As yesterday, the advice is to discard any bottles you may have at home or return them to the customer service desk at your local branch, even if opened, and with or without a receipt for a full refund. If you wish to speak to Tesco Customer Service direct the telephone number is 0800 505555.

So, do you feel reassured by the response from Tesco?
