FREE With Printed Voucher Boxing Day & New Year's Day Breakfast @ IKEA

by Luschka van Onselen in Freebies on 18 December, 2014 at 8:57 pm

FREE With Printed Voucher Boxing Day & New Year's Day Breakfast @ IKEAIKEA are offering IKEA Family members two free breakfasts on Boxing Day and New Year's Day. If you're not a Family member yet you can apply free online, and enjoy your free breakfast on one of these days.

I'm not sure that going TO IKEA for £4.50 worth of breakfast will necessarily be worth it on Boxing Day or New Year's Day, but if you were going anyway, make sure you print out these vouchers for your free breakfast.

They are valid for 2 breakfasts per membership, and the breakfast consists of 6 items for the English Breakfast - with vegetarian options available.

IKEA will be extending their breakfast serving time to 12:00 on each of these days too, which should help with getting one if the queues are longer than expected.

Up To 50% Off And FREE Delivery @ Radley

Up To 50% Off And FREE Delivery @ Radley

If you are a fan of Radley you might already know that they have a Sale on right now, but they have just made it even better buy making further reductions and adding even more gifts to the lines already reduced.

As another incentive they are offering FREE UK Delivery in time for Christmas if you order by 21st December. Anything that saves you from battling through the crowds (especially with the kids in tow) is a big bonus at the moment.

There are now nearly 150 items included in the sale, from handbags and purses to umbrellas and watches, giving you plenty to choose from for a Christmas gift or as a treat for yourself.

Looking through the sale there are lots of gorgeous classic designs, in a very high quality finish, and all adorned with the cute doggie logo too. I know someone who loves Radley so much that they would just about purchase the lot, but even I am considering upgrading from my tattered old bag to a sleek new one.

Thanks to @ HUKD.

Up To Half Price Sale @ The Disney Store

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 18 December, 2014 at 7:49 pm

Up To Half Price Sale @ The Disney Store

The Disney Store have reduced most of their Christmas items to around half price, both in store and online. With time running out and Express Delivery unavailable they have extended their Standard Delivery cut off times - Last Orders to arrive on or before 24th December is now 1pm tomorrow 19th December. Remember that the delivery charge is £4.95.

The Mickey Mouse Christmas Sleepsuit* is less than half price, now just £4.19, though there are only a few sizes available at present. The Minnie Mouse Christmas Dress* is now £8.99, but again lots of sizes are sold out online.

There are some Christmas decorations at a lot more than 50% off to put away for next year, and a couple of cuddly toys too.

I imagine the Toy Sacks will be a popular buy, as they are mostly half price now at £8.99. (The Olaf one is the most expensive at £12.59)

Because of the uncertainty over delivery this close to Christmas and the extra £4.95 charge, if you have a store near you it might be worth a look there if you can brave the crowds. The Sale only started today, but if there's something in particular you're after then it might be worth a phone call to your local Disney Store.

The Frozen Snakes and Ladders Board Game is half price, as is the Frozen Foam Puzzle, both now £5. The Disney Princess Art Case is also £5, as are quite a few big craft sets.

There are also gifts from Hello Kitty, Chuggington, Dinosaur Train, Minnie Mouse, Planes, Hexbugs, Mike The Knight, Ben 10, Iron Man and lots more as well.

The Mike The Knight figures are particularly good value reduced down from £10 to just £3.33 each. There are also a range of new Disney puzzles that are just £2.

Frozen Digital Camera - £20 Off, now £9.99 @ PC World

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 18 December, 2014 at 5:31 pm

Frozen Digital Camera - £20 Off, now £9.99 @ PC World

This looks like a great little stocking filler for Frozen fans. This Lexibook Compact Digital Camera was selling for £29.99 but has been reduced to just £9.99.

I'll freely admit that I know very little about digital photography, but I do know that I would be happier letting a child take photos with a ten pound camera than borrowing my smart phone to do it, much cheaper to replace if dropped!

This camera is designed for children so ease of use is very important, and this is emphasised in the product description. It's as easy as point and shoot, with a very simple interface so that children should have no trouble using it. If you want to know all the technical details take a peek at it online.  Remember to have some batteries in the house too so that you can set it up straight away.

The Frozen Lexibook Digital Camera is not available for home delivery, but you can reserve and collect within one hour from your local store, providing they have stock. Having checked stock levels they are not available in every store, but there do seem to be quite a few around.

Go on, get yourself a new outfit.

Up to 70% Off Christmas Gifts @ Sainsburys

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 18 December, 2014 at 1:59 pm

Up to 70% Off Christmas Gifts @ Sainsburys

It looks like lots of the major stores are reducing their Christmas Gifts in a battle for our last minute shopping, and Sainsbury's have joined in with some rather big reductions. There are discounts of up to 70%, which is what you would expect to see after Christmas, not before, with prices starting at just £1.12.

Although these prices are available through the online grocery shopping service, it seems unlikely that there will be any slots available to book, but if you are near a store then it is worth a visit to see what last minute bargains or extra stocking fillers you can pick up. Or if you are already due an online shop from Sainsburys then it's worth seeing if there's anything you want to add to it from these bargains.

One of the highlights is the range of Hello Kitty stocking fillers like tins of sweets, and key ring sets at 70% off, now from £1.20. There's even a Hello Kitty Light down from £6 to just £1.80.

There are a fair few Disney and Marvel stocking filler gifts, though some are only one third off, as well as lots of beauty and toiletry gifts again at up to 70% off. One of the most popular gifts is likely to be the Lego Star Wars Key Lights at half price, now just £4. I know  two people in my house who would love one of those...oh all right then, three.

Thanks to moob @ HUKD for the Lego Star Wars find.

My Monopoly £6.59 @ Amazon

My Monopoly £6.59 @ Amazon

This time of year is for socialising, getting the family together and enjoying each others company. Sometimes, it's nice to get the party started with a game. This My Monopoly game is just the ticket and is only £6.59 from Amazon. Think New Years Day, and the hilarity that a board game can create, especially if the adults have had a drink. Lisa, blogged about this recently and it looks like Amazon have matched the price to that of Argos.

My Monopoly is a twist on the original classic game. It aims to involved the family even more and in fact takes it to a whole new level. You can add photos and places that actually mean something to the family. With the use of the FREE Monopoly App you can print out your own stickers to make tokens, streets, chance cards and community chest cards.

This game is suitable for children aged eight years old and above and can accommodate two to four players. You have just got to have a board game to play at this time of year. This is certainly one to consider.

To get FREE Super Saver delivery from Amazon, you will need to add something that costs £3.41+ like this Bullyland Daisy Duck Figure*.

Here's a Boys' Quilted Coat* available in sizes six months to five years old and it's reduced to £7-8.

The girls' section has a great selection of partywear items, like this Skater Skirt* for just £5-6. It's beautiful crushed velvet and would just look great at a Christmas get-together. For just £4-5 you can get this Gold Top and Bottom set*, and it's very festive looking indeed.

Click and collect is FREE of charge and delivery costs just £3.95. If it's for Christmas it's a safer bet to collect it from store.

Why Too Many Gifts At Christmas Could Make Your Child Unhappy Later In Life

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 18 December, 2014 at 12:19 pm

Why Too Many Gifts At Christmas Could Make Your Child Unhappy Later In Life

We all want the best for our kids, and at Christmas - more than ever - it's tempting to go overboard on giving gifts to kids. Most mums and dads I know go a bit mad with the spending at Christmas, whether that's splashing out on expensive, one-off presents you couldn't normally afford, or panic-buying loads of little extras at the eleventh hour.

But according to new research from the University of Missouri and the University of Illinois at Chicago, buying your child too many presents might not do them any favours. Indeed, waking up to everything you've asked for on Christmas morning could well be a recipe for misery in later life.

The Daily Mail reports:

Missouri researchers warn buying too many presents for children can turn them into materialistic adults and cause behavioural issues in later life. 

'Our research suggests that children who receive many material rewards from their parents will likely continue rewarding themselves with material goods when they are grown - well into adulthood – and this could be problematic,' said Marsha Richins at MU, who led the study.

I can't be the only parent who felt pangs of guilt at reading that. I know I'm sometimes guilty of reaching for a packet of sweets or a pack of football stickers as treats and rewards for my kids, and I've seen first-hand that doing so only seems to fuel their urge to become consumers.

The researchers conclude that using material goods in three particular ways encourages materialism in later life, and leads children to believe in adulthood that success is "defined by the quality and number of material goods an individual owns or that acquiring certain products will make them more attractive", reports the paper.

What's more, adults who define success in those terms are "at a much higher risk for marital problems, gambling, financial debt and decreased well-being". 


I don't know about you, but I'm calling a halt to my endless shopping for stocking fillers as of this minute, and I might even put a present or two away for birthdays later in the year...

Children's Clothing & Shoe Sale: Items From £3 @ Blacks

Blacks specialise in outdoor clothing, and I tend to get jackets and shoes there from time to time. I like my boys' clothes to be as durable as possible, trust me, with my monsters they need to be. If I am entirely honest, I only really shop their when they have a sale on. Today, is that day...Clothing and shoes are included in the Blacks sale and items start from only £3.

If you are thinking you want a sturdy alternative to regular trainers for your little nipper then you can easily grab a pair of substantial walking shoes/boots for under a fifteen quid. In fact check out the Peter Storm Newquay Adventure Shoe* for just £12, reduced from £15.

This Peter Storm Red Fleece* has £3 off making it only £5. These are what my eldest two wear instead of jumpers. They HATE wearing jumpers but will happily wear one of these, instead.

Keep the kids cosy with sets for a fiver like this Peter Storm Hat and Glove Set*. I have a feeling we are in for a bitterly cold January since we have had it so mild, so far.

Save on the £3.99 postage charge and collect your order for FREE from ANY Bank, JD Sports, Millets, Scotts Menswear or Blacks store.

House Of Fraser Flash Sale TONIGHT ONLY

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 17 December, 2014 at 10:17 pm


House Of Fraser Flash Sale TONIGHT ONLYHouse of Fraser has a Flash Sale on tonight only, ending at 5am. They have up to 50% off toys and up to 40% off clothes, including Joules, Armani Junior, and Minene. The prices you see on the sale items are the prices before the discount is applied at the checkout.  There's free in store collection available, but standard delivery is £9.

It IS House of Fraser, so clothes especially aren't dirt cheap or anything, but there are some absolutely beautiful pieces of not overly absurd prices, like for example the gorgeous Uttam Girls Velvet Trim Wool Coat* reduced to £28.80 but £17.20 at checout or the exquisitely beautiful Uttam Girls Bow A-Line Dressreduced to £16.80 is now down to just £10.08. Really good prices for a great quality brand, I think!

Toy prices start from £1 - we're talking Loom bands here, really - but there are other good-for-stocking filler gifts from £2.

Stock seems to be moving pretty quickly, especially in kids clothing so don't hang about.

GLITCH! £9.99 Off Orders of £9.99 Or More @ MissguidedPop on over to Missguided right now to take £9.99 off any order of £9.99 or more! Yep, you can essentially get your order for free. It looks like you'll have to be going for full priced items, rather than sale items, and we've tested this code on dresses and leather look leggings.

Click here for the Missguided website*

  • Discount: £9.99
  • Code: NICE

We've done some quick testing, and this code can be used on some dresses, leggings and handbags. A lot of the items are priced at £9.99, meaning you  just have to pay postage.

Obviously as a glitch Missguided may choose not to honour it, but we hope that they will! You may have to have a play around with the items in your basket - my first attempt said the code wasn't valid, but the next one worked. Also, it looks like it's not working on PayPal purchases, but is on card payments.

See if there's anything you can pick up - a little Christmas gift for yourself!

Could Cannabis Treatment Help Children With Epilepsy?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 17 December, 2014 at 8:52 pm

Could Cannabis Treatment Help Children With Epilepsy?

How would you feel about your child being treated for a serious medical condition with a treatment derived from the cannabis plant?

According to the Herald newspaper, that could soon be reality for children with severe epilepsy in the UK.

The newspaper reports that doctors will soon trial the medicine - called Epidiolex - which "does not contain the ingredient that produces the high associated with recreational cannabis use" but rather is "based on one of the non-psychoactive components" of the cannabis plant.

The newspaper reports:

"Early studies in the US have shown that treatment with CBD may reduce the frequency and severity of seizures in children with severe forms of epilepsy."

"Patients are being enrolled for a randomised controlled trial of the treatment at The University of Edinburgh's Muir Maxwell Epilepsy Centre, based at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, and Great Ormond Street Hospital."

The trial will initially focus on children with Dravet Syndrome, which causes long-lasting, prolonged seizures and is difficult to treat.

The trial will only include children whose seizures cannot be controlled with existing medications.

The Daily Mail reports that researchers will also study the effect on children another type of childhood epilepsy called Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, which is also difficult to treat and "normally develops when children are aged between one and six and is characterised by frequent seizures of different types".
