Amazon seller, Net_Price_Direct are selling the Cloud B Gentle Giraffe Soothing Puppet for only £4.35 delivered. You can buy these direct from Cloud B for £24.57, so you can appreciate that is one heck of a bargain.

Chad Valley Bouncer £6.99 @ Argos

If you are after a no frills cheap baby bouncer then check out this Chad Valley one from Argos. It was £14.99, then £8.99 and now it's only £6.99. Argos have certainly been churning out the bargains lately.

The Chad Valley bouncer is suitable from birth up until your baby weighs 9kg or can sit up unaided. The seat cover is easily removed and can be machine washed at thirty degrees.

Okay, so this doesn't have a vibrating function or any fancy gadgets but neither did the Cosatto one I bought for my baby. I just lightly bounced it with my foot.  The bright design is stimulating for little peepers. If you have a moany little baby then honestly these are just the ticket to get them to dose off.

Stock is aplenty of these across all of the United Kingdom. They are fine for having at Grandmas or for keeping at a friends. My local baby/toddler group has a few of these for little ones to play in.

You can collect the Chad Valley bouncer free from any Argos store or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your door.

Millie 5 Drawer Chest Of Drawers £10 @ B&Q

You will have to be quick if you want one of these. I have never seen a brand new chest of drawers for anywhere near as cheap. B&Q have over 75% off this large piece of furniture. It as £48 it's now only £10. TEN POUND!

The Millie 5 drawer chest of drawers is modern looking and features five generously sized drawers. This would look fine in a nursery, child's or teens bedroom. It's made of chipboard with a light acacia wood finish.

I am not wanting to babble on about these because they will selling as fast as lighting.  The height of these 89.5cm by a width of 74.7cm.

These chest of drawers are self assembly, so bear in mind that you may need a hand to build them. The Millie one drawer bedside table matches this perfectly and that too is only £10, after being £23.  For £10 these are certainly worth it, after all what can you get storage wise for a tenner? A couple of plastic boxes maybe.

You can collect the Millie 5 drawer chest of drawers for free from your local B&Q store or if you'd rather have it delivered then it's £5 (free when you spend over £50).

Big Paw Sale 30 - 50% Off @ Build A Bear

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 August, 2014 at 10:14 pm

Big Paw Sale 30 - 50% Off @ Build A BearBuild A Bear's Big Paw Sale sees 30 - 50% off selected items from the Build a Bear range right now.

There's everything from the standard bear to pink butterflies and toothy sharks. They're all around £12, but if you hit the clearance section, there are some from £4.

The clothes are listed at £12 for 2 sets and then there's accessories for £6 for 2. While Build A Bear is pretty much expensive all the time, these are not overly crazy prices, and useful if you have a fan and need to stock up on surprise bits and pieces for gift-occasions.

I know the sequin handbags for £3 would adorn one of our many bears - maybe the viking? - quite beautifully.

Deliveries from Build A Bear are £3.25, and it doesn't say specifically whether the offer is available in store as well, but it may be worth peeking in if this is on your birthday-Christmas-any time of year list!

My First Twin Dolls £7.50 @ John Lewis

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 August, 2014 at 9:56 pm

My First Twin Dolls £7.50 @ John LewisJohn Lewis are offering a set of My First Twin Dolls for £7.50 for the two dolls. Delivery from John Lewis is £3, but you can collect from either John Lewis or Waitrose for free. 

I really like this set from John Lewis. Apart from the fact that you're getting two dolls for £7.50 - the My First Doll from ELC is £10 each, and the Baby Born at John Lewis is over £16  - and could split them if you needed a couple of gifts on the cheap, it's great value for money.

One of the twins is dressed in a pretty pink spotted sleepsuit, while the other wears a "fetching" blue striped one.

They say they are suitable from 2 years.. I'll leave that up to your discretion, really. 

The reviews on these are fantastic. The dolls are apparently soft to touch and the kids love them.  I think they look like a brilliant value for money gift, myself!

Character Shorts and Tights 2 Piece Set Infants £3.99 @ Sports Direct

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 August, 2014 at 9:22 pm

Character Shorts and Tights 2 Piece Set Infants £3.99 @ Sports DirectSports Direct have this lovely Character Shorts and Tights set on offer for £3.99 down from £15.99. Delivery from SD is £3.99 so if you're having it delivered it's well worth having a look at the other items and grabbing a few of the other bargains too, like shorts for £3, demin dress for £6 and so on.

The Dora Shorts and Tights set is a "simple yet fashionable design". The shorts feature an elasticated waist so no fiddly buttons to contend with, perfect for a fashionable youngster and it's ideal for this time of year - shorts for warm days, and tights for chillier weather.

The shorts have two pockets and are 100% cotton, and the tights have a cute polka dot design. Obviously - and I'm not sure why they feel the need to say this - but both items are machine washable.

The set is available in three sizes in ages 2-3, 3-4 and 4-5 and seems to be in good stock too.

Free! Back To School Guide

The Professional Association For Childhood And Early Years has released a free guide to help children and parents of children heading to school this year get ready for the big changes.

While it may be too late for those who've already started back, it's just in time for many of us with little ones starting school in a few weeks.

You can find all the information you need on the link above, but in brief, you can download the free guide with top tips on how to handle the first day at school or at a new school.

You can also download fact sheets on various aspects of school life, and if you're looking for a good way to introduce the topic, there's also an activity sheet for children to cut and colour.

Hopefully a little preparation can curb the first day of school jitters.

Carousel Stick On Bath Numbers and Letters £3.50 Was £5 @ Tesco Direct

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 21 August, 2014 at 4:00 pm

Carousel Stick On Bath Numbers and Letters £3.50 Was £5 @ Tesco Direct

Tesco Direct have stick-on bath numbers and letters on offer right now, reduced from £5 to £3.50.

My kids used to love these when they were little, and could stay in the bath until their fingers were seriously wrinkly as they whiled away the time spelling out their names and testing their mathematical prowess.

I reckon I'll have to hide these from my lads if I buy some for the baby though - I can just see them delighting in spelling out certain 'naughty' words like 'poo' and 'bum'. Sigh.

Judging by the glowing reviews, these bath numbers and letters live up to expectations, too. Here's what one happy customer says:

"Reasonable selection of letters and numbers, although they don't stick to the side of the bath as well as some others I've had in the past. Very good that the letters are lower case rather than capitals." 

The item explanation on the website says they're suitable for children aged three years and older.

Standard delivery is £3 or you can opt to collect in store for free.

Happy bath time!

Celebaby: Simon Cowell And Baby Eric Pose In Matching Designer Shades

Celebaby: Simon Cowell And Baby Eric Pose In Matching Designer Shades

Simon Cowell impressed us all this week when he completed the ASL ice bucket challenge and promptly nominated Cheryl Cole (sorry, I mean Cheryl Fernandez-Versini) to go next.

But it's no wonder he carried his own challenge off with such aplomb - judging by this photo, he's evidently one cool dude, even when the temperature soars. As is baby Eric, who seems to own a matching pair of designer aviator shades. Nice.

The proud new Pop took to Twitter to share this snap with his fans and followers, tweeting:

"Taking after daddy."

The Daily Mirror reports:

"Let’s hope that Eric steers clear from the high-waisted jeans for a while though!"

"Baby Eric’s mother Lauren Silverman recently revealed that she was keen to have more children with the music mogul, telling The Mirror that having Eric with Simon had been a 'blessing', while Simon admitted he's keen for a little girl."

"'I was never able to have a child for a long time, it's the biggest blessing,' Lauren said."

"'With Simon I'm the happiest I've ever been. He's an amazing dad, he does all the nappies, very hands-on. I love him. We'll definitely have more children.'"           

So much for Simon vowing, before little Eric arrived, that he would NEVER change a nappy! It's pretty sweet to think that fatherhood has softened the notoriously frosty judge.

How has parenthood changed your partner? Did you have a nappy-resistant other half who now thinks nothing of dealing with night-time explosions? We'd love to hear all about it on our Facebook page and you can follow us on Twitter - we're @Playpennies and we'd love to chat with you online.

Grow & Play Misfits Puzzle £2.49 @ Sainsburys

Grow & Play Misfits Puzzle £2.49 @ Sainsburys

Sainsburys have halved the price of the Grow & Play Misfits puzzle, making it just £2.49. Wooden puzzles are always popular with young ones and with the 50% off on this one it's a no brainer.

The Grow & Play Misfits puzzle looks like lots of fun. It is comprised of twenty four wooden pieces. There's eight different characters to put together and if you fancy a giggle you can muddle them all up so that the fireman is wearing a dress etc.

This wooden puzzle toy is suitable from the age of one and a half age and will is a good introduction into the world of puzzles and problem solving. Activities like this help strengthen your child's concentration skills and they are fun to play together.

The Grow & Play Misfits puzzle comes in a lovely wooden crafted box and this will make a game in itself fitting all of the pieces back in.  Since it comes so nicely packaged I think it would make a terrific gift for someone.

You can collect the Grow & Play Misfits puzzle from for free from your local Sainsburys store if you spend over £15 or you can have it delivered for £3.95.


Living Heart Shape Mirror £3.99 @ Argos

Living Heart Shape Mirror £3.99 @ Argos

You guys loved the elephant mirror we showed you last week. Here's another lovely mirror bargain, Argos have slashed the price this heart shape mirror to only £3.99. This was selling at £14.99 before being reduced to £4.99, which is one heck of a reduction,and then they sliced off a further £1.

This Living heart shape mirror comes with fittings so it can be mounted on a bedroom wall. I think it's pretty and would look fab in a little ones bedroom. It has a white surround with the love heart mirror in the middle. Argos say it's mountable vertically or horizontally, not sure why you would want to have that horizontally.

For £3.99 this is a very affordable piece to accessorise a bedroom. I wouldn't worry about how old your little one is as this can be mounted out of reach.  Due to it's simplistic nature the mirror would suit anything from a nursery through to a teens room.

You can collect the Living heart shape mirror for free from your local Argos or you can have it delivered for £3.49, even if you do opt for delivery it's still a bargain.

Tesco Kidswear Sale Lots Of New Lines Added From 50p @ Clothing At Tesco

Tesco Kidswear Sale Lots Of New Lines Added From 50p @ Clothing At Tesco

Quick! Clothing at Tesco have added lots of new lines to their Kids clothing sale. Items start at only 50p but are selling out very quick. The selection is immense and there's something for babies right through to teens.

Clothing at Tesco have pulled out all the stops with their current clothing sale and I am astounded as to how many lines are included. For only 50p you can pick up a very cute pink girl's cap with a Dragonfly motif. This is the cheapest item in the sale and it's certainly worth it's current price tag.

There's little boys T-shirts galore, and one that caught my eye was the Stereo print one for only £1.50. This was £3 so has a very generous 50% off.  Available from 0-3 months through to 12-18. Like I said there's heaps of different T-shirt designs, so get moving if you are needing to stock up on that next size.

I don't know what happens to the socks in this house but I feel like I am forever losing them and having to replenish. When I find cheap sock sets I buy them. Clothing at Tesco have lots of different sets for boys and girls for around £2 for five pairs. That really is fab.

You can never have too many bibs and you can grab a pack of five in this sale for only £1.50. The ones that caught my eye were unisex and had an elephant design on. These would be a great present for a new baby.

This clothing sale is super and I plan on hitting it hard myself, with four boys to clothe I will happy take all the clothing bargains I can lay my hands on. Let's face it they either ruin them or they grow out of them quickly, so why not stock up at these tiny prices?

Save some money by collecting your order from your local Tesco store, this service is free. If you prefer the convenience of having it delivered to your home then Tesco charge £3.95 or it's free if you spend over £50. Trust me, you will get a lot of clothing for £50.

These feature every child's favourite pig and are ideal for the kids to take to school for play pieces. I use mine to put grapes in or a favourite of my boys is smarties and raisins together.

If you are after a boy's lunch bag then I found a Spiderman one included in the 25% off deal. It already has £2 off it just now, having been £8 originally, with the code it's yours for only £4.50.  Not bad at all.

I just love fibre optic lamps, and there's a mega cute Hello Kitty one for only £4.50 with the code. I think that is great for a nice little bedroom accessory.

Chad Valley Pretend Play Vacuum Cleaner £4.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 21 August, 2014 at 9:29 am

Chad Valley Pretend Play Vacuum Cleaner £4.99 @ Argos

What can you get for £4.99 these days? The Chad Valley Pretend Play Vacuum Cleaner from Argos, that's what. This was previously £9.99 then down to £5.99 before becoming the super bargain price of £4.99.

The Chad Valley Pretend Play Vacuum Cleaner is in a modern cylinder style. It contains bouncing beads that whirl around the inside to simulate dust. You will find that your little one will pull this toy out every time you are vacuuming. Role play toys are always popular with wee ones.

What's better than being just like mummy and daddy? With toys like this children can mimic our cleaning habits, and we can only hope that if we instil this from an early age that they will become domestic Gods/Goddesses once they are older.

I bought my son Ben a pretend vacuum cleaner when he was two, because he was petrified of my Hoover. What a difference it made. As soon as he heard me vacuuming, all you would hear was a clatter as he came to me with it, and then he would run it back and forth furiously. He loved it and is still keen to help me when it needs doing.

The Chad Valley Pretend Play Vacuum Cleaner is in most of the Argos stores that I checked across the UK. It can either be collected from your local Argos store for free or you can have it delivered for £3.95.

TP Spiro Bouncer £29.99/£32.98 Delivered @ Smyths

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 20 August, 2014 at 10:09 pm

TP Spiro Bouncer £29.99/£32.98 Delivered @ SmythsThe Spiro Bouncer is currently £29.99 at Smyths, with free collection from their stores. If you have to have it delivered you'll have to add £2.99 bringing it to £32.98.

For the first time ever, really, my kids have absolutely loved their outdoor toys this summer. Their slide is probably the one thing they've actually played on every single day. That being the case I'm really sad that those outdoorsy kind of toys have to come to an end soon, which is why I'm loving this indoor seesaw! And obviously you could use it outside in the meantime too. Just brilliant, really.

The TP Spiro Bouncer spins 360 degrees, so you'll have to have good space for it, and it bounces up and down on the ball bits too. I also love that the soft balls on each side cushion the impact - that's something I always worry about with regular slides.

It has a hollow base which can be filled with sand for added stability and it comes with a funnel included so you don't have sand going all over the living room or play room.

Apparently it's easy to assemble too which is a great start to any toy.

Frozen Elsa & Anna Plastic Lunchbag And Bottle £8.49 Delivered @ Internet Gift Store

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 20 August, 2014 at 9:32 pm

Frozen Elsa & Anna Plastic Lunchbag And Bottle £8.49 Delivered @ Internet Gift StoreInternet Gift Store is selling a rather unusual variety of the Elsa and Anna lunchbag  bottle duos. It's £9.99 with free UK delivery, but if you use the code FACEBOOK1 and ICLICKED it takes £1.50 off the total, bringing it down to £8.49, delivered.  This set is currently available at Amazonfor £10 with £3.99 delivery, so you're saving a few pennies at IGS with this offer.

I do like this case over a soft case! It should prevent sandwiches getting squashed and fruit getting bruised, which would definitely please my daughter! I've not seen these before either.

This is apparently official Disney merchandise, and is obviously food safe. The casing is wipeable, and the carry handle offers secure closure. It's also BPA and lead free.

The set includes a matching bottle, although it seems to only be matching in colour, as there's no image on it.

Remember that with IGS the price goes up as an item becomes popular so don't delay if you want this set at this price, and if you're having trouble with free delivery on PayPal, try to pay by card and it should take care of that for you.
