Moshi Monsters Children in Need Collectables Tin 99p (Was £9.99) @ Argos

Looks like plenty of stock around for this one, although that will no doubt change very quickly. It’s not available for home delivery.

So what do you get for your 99p here? You get 8 spotty moshlings and a limited edition collectors tin to keep them in.

The reviews are all glowing and indeed most are 5 star, as parents we probably know what we’re getting here but just for reference a typical review reads :

My 8yr old son brought this with his Christmas money and was very pleased with it. He is a Moshi Monsters fan and liked the added interest of them being Children in Need design. Although they are only small plastic figures, they can provide fun and imaginative play. My 4yr old daughter has also enjoyed them. Having the tin is also helpful for storage.

Ideal small gift for the kids, to put away for party bags or last minute party invites or even stocking fillers? Never too early really is it?

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Microwave Steriliser £9.71 @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 30 July, 2014 at 11:12 am

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Microwave Steriliser £9.71 @ Amazon

We have had a few Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature deals of late but not featuring the microwave steriliser. At Amazon just now you can pick up one for only £9.71. That is a super price as they are £15 at Asda and a whopping £26.99 at Argos.

A steriliser is one of those must have items for when you have a baby. Even when breastfeeding, if you choose to express, the breast pump and bottles must be sterile to prevent gastro illnesses. The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature range is a firm favourite of mine. As someone who combination fed my little baby, Daniel, I highly recommend their products.

If you don’t fancy using an electric steam steriliser then this would make a great alternative. They are very portable, so if you are lucky enough to get a child free night and baby is at your parents then you can take that along.

It holds four bottles and only takes an impressive four to eight minutes (dependant of microwave wattage) to sterilise. The bottles stay sterile for twenty four hours if unopened.

Along with the Tommee Tippee microwave steriliser, you get one closer to nature 150ml bottle, teat tongs and a dummy.

I realise this falls just short of the Amazon free delivery threshold of £10, so why not grab some Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature fast flow teats for only £1.75.

Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo £61(With e-Coupon) @ Tesco Direct

Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo £61(With e-Coupon) @ Tesco Direct

After a Fisher Price Jumperoo? Well, you have come to the right place. Tesco Direct are selling the Fisher Price Rainforest for £76 just now. What make it even better is the fact that you can get it for £61 by using an eCoupon.

The Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo has been a firm favourite with parents and babies for years now. Now, you want to know how to get it for £61? It’s really simple, simply enter e-Coupon TDXR-PYRT in the box provided at the checkout stage. Voila! £15 off a spend of £75 or more.

For those of you that don’t know what the Jumperoo does, I will tell you. It is aimed at babies aged six months and over. It’s a big bungee bouncer toy that has lots of features such as five different toy stations, lights and sounds.

I love seeing babies in these because they go hyper, their little legs bounce like mad. I can’t help but think they should make one for adults. What a workout that would be!

It can collapse down slightly for storage, which is great because it is quite big. There’s three height settings, super for adjusting as baby grows. The extra high seat provides support to your tiny one’s back.

Collect for free from your local Tesco store or pay £3 to have your Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo delivered. This is included in the Clubcard Boost so this could work out as a tremendous bargain.

You will find this e-Coupon for Tesco Direct and lots more at our Vouchers section. Why not check it out?

Children's Character Pyjamas from 95p @ Character.com

by Nada in Deals on 30 July, 2014 at 9:37 am

Children's Character Pyjamas from 95p @ Character.com

Starting from a tiny 95p you can bag yourself some Children’s character pyjamas from Character.com. They have a massive pyjama clearance on just now that is very impressive!

Whether it’s Hello Kitty, One Direction or Skylanders, Character.com have a very affordable range of childrens pyjamas featuring characters for all boys and girls. The majority of the pyjama range costs £1.95, which let’s face it is still an outrageous bargain. They even have Disney Frozen items, so it's worth a look.

If you’re after some girls pyjamas then, you are in luck because there’s three different designs to choose from at 95p each. Joey Essex (not sure they would know who he is), Monsters University and Union J. There’s lots more but at not at this price.

As for boys, they start at £1.95 for Manchester United, Skylanders, Angry Birds and oodles of other characters.  There’s even Thomas the Tank ones.

Stock levels are dependent on which style and size selected. Sizes start from 12-18 months right through to 13 years. There really is something for everyone. Most of the pyjamas are made from 100% cotton so should machine wash without any issues.

That’s not all this site sells, backpacks, swim bags, lunch bags and much, much more. You can certain pick up a fair few back to school items.

Postage is £2.95 plus 50p for each additional item, or free if you spend over £25.  That would be easy to do since there's lots of super items on Character.com

It’s all set out clearly with step by step instructions and includes free printables too.

Baby Nappies, Bibs & More 40% Or More Off @ BabyKind

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 9:10 pm

Baby Nappies, Bibs & More 40% Or More Off @ BabyKindBabyKind has a summer sale on right now with some amazing offers for those using cloth nappies especially.

Both my girls were brought up in cloth nappies as neither of them did well with chemicals when they were smaller, and my oldest had a terrible reaction to most disposable nappies, but I never saw a new nappy sold for the prices they're on sale at BabyKind right now.

Minki pocket nappies are £3 instead of £9.99, Wonderoo nappies are £3.99 instead of £15.99 and gorgeous HipHipBaby wet nappy tote bags are down from £7.50 to £2.99. HipHip Baby changing mats are down to £4.49 and Imse Vimse swimmers are down to £7.50 .

If you're not too fussed about everything being 'oh so perfect' for your baby, the Bandana Bibs 'Seconds' are 75p right now, down from the usual £2.50. These have some marks from being on display, or threads loose and so on.

If you have a baby coming, or are looking for new baby presents, there are fabulous prices to be had here. I half wish I was having another baby, just for another go at those cute little cloth nappies!

Thomas The Tank Inflatable Bouncing Castle £43.20 @ Debenhams

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Thomas The Tank Inflatable Bouncing Castle £43.20 @ DebenhamsIf you're loving the sunshine and good weather, this Thomas the Tank Inflatable Bouncing Castle from Debenhams could be just the ticket for getting the kids outdoors. It's reduced from £60 to £48, which I believe makes it the cheapest bouncy castle we've had around here so far this summer.  Then add the code FV39 from our voucher page, and it drops it even further down to £43.20 with free delivery, though it may take up to two weeks to be delivered.  Around the web these can be found for upwards of £75.

The Thomas the Tank Inflatable Bouncing Castle isn't massive, which makes it ideal for most of us. I had a look at it on other sites, and the reviews of it are great. People say that it's easy to inflate and deflate, and that they use it outdoors or indoors, depending on what the weather is like.

One person was concerned about it's quality but they had nothing but rave reviews on it and their son used it every day, so that's promising.

The bouncy castle is approximately: 153cms x 153cms x 165cms which means it's a nice size for little ones, but not so big there's not going to be room anywhere for it.

Massive Clearance Event Starting 7am Monday 4th August @ B&Q

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 6:23 pm

Massive Clearance Event Starting 7am Monday 4th August @ B&Q

This one will be in store only and the doors open at 7am where it’s first come first served. There will be hundreds of things included and while we don’t have a full list there are some things confirmed at the minute.

This is just a tiny selection in what looks like being a massive clearance event.

  • 7 x 7 shiplap shed was £349.98 will be £139 (5397007009002)
  • Kids Wooden Playhut £59 (5397007009149) or for £79 (5397007009125)
  • 8 Piece Garden Furniture Set Was £149 now £90 (5052931256358) (Looks like this one may already be reduced)
  • 3M Overhanging Parasol £30 (Parasol 5052931257720) (Ditto this one, looks like this may be reduced already)
  • Corner Arbour, Blooma Chiltern £99 (5397007007558)
  • Electric Ryobi Strimmer £20

The kids wooden playhouses definitely stand out for me here but I guess it depends what you're hoping for really. Remember though it’s first come first served here and when it’s gone it’s gone!

The numbers in brackets are the EAN numbers and as B&Q is discontinuing a lot of stock they won’t all show on the website but a quick Google search on the items you’re interested in may help. I googled the kids wooden playhouse and will be there queueing at my local at 7am on Monday.

Anyone care to join me?

Huge thanks to gab123 @ HUKD for the heads up here!

Celebaby: Jade Jagger And Daughter Assisi Show Off Their New Babies Together

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Celebaby on 29 July, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Celebaby: Jade Jagger And Daughter Assisi Show Off Their New Babies Together

Jade Jagger and her daughter Assisi both recently gave birth to babies - born one month apart - and the proud new mums are gracing the cover of the current edition of Hello magazine together.

I can't wrap my head around whether I'd find it weird or wonderful to be pregnant at the same time as my mum, (!) but I reckon in celebland, it's probably more wonderful than weird.

The magazine reports:

"'It was quite peculiar that the pregnancies happened at the same time,' Jade, who welcomed her third child, son Ray Emmanuel Fillary, four weeks after Assisi gave birth to daughter Ezra Key, said."

"'I can't help but have a sense of humour about it. But becoming a grandmother doesn't faze me or make me feel older. I don't feel like a grandmother, because the babies are so close in age it almost feels like they are brother and sister. It's been really great. We're lucky.'"

Ok, so the brother and sister bit is definitely verging a bit more towards the weird side of wonderful, in my mind. Erm, surely they're niece and uncle?

Jade also tells the mag that she waited several months before breaking her baby news to daughter Assisi, as she didn't want to steal her thunder, and Assisi says she is very happy at the way things have worked out. Aw.

Free RNLI Beach Smart Pack And Snapband

Losing sight of your child is every parent's worst nightmare, and nowhere is a more scary place to face that prospect than the beach. So we love this offer from RNLI - just click the link below and pop your details in to get a free identity snapband, a waterproof marker (so you can write your emergency contact details on the snap band) plus an activity booklet.

For under 16's, parents or guardians will need to fill in the details, and you can opt in or out of receiving RNLI promotional materials or marketing materials from selected third parties, so you don't need to worry about getting bombarded with junk mail if you give them your details.

When you enter the date of birth, make sure you use the format DD/MM/YYYY.

Although this is a freebie, folks have pointed out that it's something they'd be more than happy to pay for on the basis that the RNLI is such a worthwhile charity. If that's how you feel, you could always donate here.

With thanks to Col67 @HUKD.

Chad Valley Paint Your Own Gnome/Birdhouse £2.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 11:24 am

Chad Valley Paint Your Own Gnome/Birdhouse £2.99 @ Argos

This summer hasn’t been too bad weather-wise, but that hasn’t stopped my brood from complaining of boredom. It’s always handy to have something that can be used on a nice or a wet day. What about the cost of occupying our little people? It’s too costly to go out every day, so a homely activity can provide the entertainment for a fraction of the price.

Argos have Chad Valley Paint Your Own Kits for only £2.99. They were £4.99, then £3.32 before becoming reduced again. There’s a choice of two sets, a gnome or a birdhouse. What I like about these, as well as the price, is they are functional. The gnome can be placed outside as a garden ornament and the birdhouse to home little feathered friends.

Each set contains: a ceramic gnome or a wooden birdhouse (depending which kit you choose), five little pots of paint and a paintbrush. The kids can paint their own designs on to the item then put it to use. I would recommend coating it in a protective coating like varnish as I can’t see the paint included in the kit being waterproof.

These would make a great activity for a kid’s party or even as a present for someone.

Reserve and collect from your local Argos for free or pay £3.95 for delivery.

Spiderman Duvet Cover & Pillowcase £7 @ Tesco Direct

by Nada in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 10:17 am

Spiderman Duvet Cover & Pillowcase £7 @ Tesco Direct

We put a Spiderman duvet cover on here the other day and you lot were loving it. I have found another and this one is only £7 from Tesco Direct. It was previously selling for £14.

What caught my eye about this duvet cover and pillowcase set is that it is 180 thread count, so it is better than your standard children’s duvet set. Personally, for £7 I think something of this quality is worth it. It’s not quite luxurious but it will be better than many you will come across.

Spiderman is a popular choice with little boys right up to older ones, and I bet there’s a fair few girl fan of the sticky superhero too. If your son or daughter is into Marvel characters then this will gain you a few brownie points.

I will be snapping up a few of these for my sons. They are machine washable at forty degrees, which is perfect as I feel like I am forever washing bedding.

You can collect for free from your local Tesco store or pay £3.00 for delivery. Even when you factor in delivery, this is a good price. This item is included in the Clubcard Boost offer so this could end up costing little or nothing, if you have the clubcard points available.

Spending more? Then why not check out our vouchers section for Tesco eCoupons and lots more.

Fisher Price Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey's Jet £13.99 @ Argos

When you see Mickey Mouse, how many of you burst into the Hot Dog song? I bet it’s not just me. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse has been popular with little nippers for years, and by the looks of it for years to come. With it’s catchy songs, you can’t help but get sucked in.

If your little one is mesmerised by Mickey and his friends, then I have a deal that will interest you. Argos are selling the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mickey’s Jet Playset for £13.99. This had an original price of £26.39 then was reduced to £15.99 before they reduced it further.

It is suitable for age 2 years and above. This is essentially a toy plane, with pilot Mickey Mouse and co-pilot Donald Duck figurines included. You also get 3 pieces of luggage accessories included. The plane opens up so your child can explore the inside of Mickey’s jet, there’s even a working luggage conveyor belt.

It can be rolled along the floor, as this is done the wings of the jet move up and down. I can see many two or three year olds loving this character toy.

Reserve and collect from your local Argos store for free.

Kiddicare Stores To Close & Bargain Prices On Remaining Stock (In Store Only)

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 29 July, 2014 at 9:08 am

Kiddicare Stores To Close & Bargain Prices On Remaining Stock (In Store Only)

As the title says it looks like Kiddicare are closing all their stores, with perhaps the exception of Peterborough, and you guys have been contacting us to let us know there’s bargains to be had in store.

Obviously this is an in store deal only and stock and subsequent reductions will vary from store to store but we’ve been hearing that Southampton have 25% off all toys (including Lego) while the Merry Hill store have 15% off already hugely reduced prices.

I guess they’ll be trying to clear as much stock as possible, so if you’re close to a store it’s well worth a look for any baby or child items you need.

As you can see from the article above it looks like Kiddicare will now only trade online, with perhaps the exception of the Peterborough store although this remains unconfirmed as yet. Online trading will be unaffected.

Has anyone managed to pick up anything great at their local Kiddicare? Let us know!

Big thanks to Gemma, Clare and Gabe on our Facebook Page!

Final Reductions Starting from £1 Delivered @ Jojo Maman Bebe

Most will already know that Jojo Maman Bebe already have their summer sale on. We are ever so considerate here at Playpennies, and wanted to let you know that they have reduced items even further. Don’t forget they are offering free delivery too, with no code required.

Kids clothing starts at £1, and there’s plenty of baby, boys and girls clothing included. Plenty of cute accessories are in the final reductions too. There’s a two pack of footless tights for £3 delivered, a great purchase for the up and coming cooler months. For the boys, for just £5 (reduced from £16) there's a lovely poloshirt shortie romper, ideal for keeping a sweaty little baby boy cool on these humid sunny days. Plus many other bits for you little men.

They have a decent selection of maternity wear in their summer sale too, which has been reduced further. Their maternity range is right up my street. I think it’s superb quality, so if you can grab a few pieces reduced then you are on to a winner. Items start from £2 delivered. For example, the tailored pencil skirt is only £7 delivered and was £29 pre-sale. There’s a fine mixture of casualwear and formal/workwear.

There’s a few items left in the products section of the site, things have been selling fast and there’s only 13 different pieces left. Starting from £2 delivered, you can grab things like the Jojo essential sleeved bib for £3 (was £8). I will be stocking up on these, as these protect little one’s clothes entirely. There’s a choice of two sleeping bags that are £10 each, that have previously been £22.

Everything you see has free delivery. It is certainly worth a look. Apparently, this sale ends tomorrow so don’t hang about if you are after a bargain.
