Cuddleuppets: Now from £3.99 @ Bargain Max

Cuddleuppets: Now from £3.99 @ Bargain Max

The last time we told you about Cuddleuppets at Bargain Max they were selling them for £5.99, which was a bit of a bargain. Well the good news is that they have now dropped the price even further, and now they are from as little as £3.99 each! Even adding on the £1.49 delivery charge this is by far the cheapest I can find.

If you don't know what they are, Cuddleuppets are cuddly blankets for kids that are also puppets. They are big, fluffy blankets in different animal designs that your child can use as a puppet with their hand to make their Cuddluppet talk, dance and play. Whether us grown ups can 'get' the appeal of these or not, it seems that kids love them!

The three designs available at Bargain Max are the Pink Poodle and Yellow Dog both at £3.99 each, or the Unicorn which is £4.99. All were originally selling for between £9.99 and £14.99, and are still around that price in most stores. Even Amazon is charging more (which is fairly unusual!).

I was wondering whether they were selling these off with the spring on it's way... then I shivered and wondered whether to put the heating on instead. I think a blanket will still get a lot of use!

Odeon & Vue: 2 for 1 Wednesdays in March

Odeon & Vue: 2 for 1 Wednesdays in March

If you were an Orange/EE customer you would probably have taken advantage of the 2 For 1 Cinema Ticket offer. Unfortunately Orange/EE pulled out when their sponsorship deal ended, and last Wednesday 25th February was the last Orange Wednesday.

The good news is that whilst a new sponsor is being looked for two of the biggest cinema chains are continuing the 2 for 1 Wednesdays with their own offer throughout March.

Vue announced their offer a few days ago, and Odeon announced theirs last night, so if either of these are your local cinema then you're in luck!

For the Vue 2 for 1 Orange Wednesday offer you need to sign up on their website and they send you a unique membership number which you quote at the box office or online to get your 2 for 1 on Wednesdays throughout March.

The Odeon offer works in a similar way - you sign up and they send you a code, but it looks like you have to request a different one each time you want to take them up on the offer.

All the details and how to claim the offers are on the links above. Now we're just waiting for Cineworld and Showcase and most of us will be sorted!

Parents Get Tattoo Of Their Daughter's Birthmark

Helping your child handle anything that marks them out as different from their peers is a challenge for any parent.

But one couple have taken that a step further by getting a tattoo of their little girl's birthmark on their own legs. We're not talking a small tattoo either - these stretch from thigh to ankle.

Easter: Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud - Bunny £3.33 @ Tesco Direct

Who said Easter is all about the chocolate? Okay so I did, but it's also about the cute bunnies, right? For those of you who don't wish to give to chocolate at Easter this Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny is just ideal. Plus it has money off just now making it just £3.33. For the price of an Easter egg you can give this lovely little bunny wabbit.

The Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny is suitable for children aged twelve months old and above. Maybe it's baby's first Easter or first birthday? It's a nice little touch for a little one. I just think this is such a nice alternative to chocolate.

This little cute bunny is completely machine washable, which is a Godsend for cuddly toys as kids drool all over them. It has a lovely knitted finish to it and I like how that makes this look a bit home-made and traditional looking.

You can Click and Collect the Cuddle & Love Cosy Cloud Bunny for FREE from you local Tesco store or pay £3 to have it delivered to your door.

Up To 50% Off Children's Shoes @ Start-Rite

Up To 50% Off Children's Shoes @ Start-Rite

Start-Rite are right up there with the other great children's shoemakers Clarks. We LOVE them and even more so when we get them cheap. Let's face it, Start-Rite shoes aren't cheap unless you get them in the sale. It just so happens that they have Up to 50% off selected Children's Shoes just now. Yippee! As the seasons change it's sometimes a good time to buy lighter footwear. Having said that, don't turf away those winter boots yet, as it wouldn't be the first time we have seen snow in March.

I think the girls' selection is much better than the boys in the Start-Rite sale. However, there's a reasonable choice for the boys, and I have my beady eyes on a pair.

Here's my pick of the Girls' Sale Shoes: Flexy Soft Flower Girls Purple Leather First Walking Shoes* was £40 now £22, Scilla Black Patent Girls First Walking Shoes* was £38 now £19 and Super Soft Amy Stone Walking Shoes* was £36 now £15.

For the boys: Incy Spider Brown Leather Shoes* was £40 now £20 and Start-Rite Super Soft Sam First Walking Shoes* was £36 now £18.

Delivery is £2.99.

Girls' Clothing Sale: Everything 50%, 60% Or 70% Off @ Mango

Girls' Clothing Sale: Everything 50%, 60% Or 70% Off @ Mango

Wow! The sale at Mango is absolutely amazing. The Girls' Clothing Sale selection is full to the brim with bargains that have 50%, 60% or 70% off. Not seen the childrenswear at Mango? Think Zara, think that laid back, uber cool styling. With items starting below £3, you just have to check it out or show it to someone with a little girl. I'd say Mango's original pricing is more expensive but their sale pricing blows them out of the water. It's cheap, folks...so don't hang about.

There's so much I want to tell you about but there are so many bargains that I can't list them all. This Bead Animal T-Shirt* is a nice find. It comes in a choice of two colours: Pastel Pink or Yellow. It was £12.99 and is now only £4.99.

Tartan Skirts* are ever so cute on little ones, get this one for just £9.99 reduced from £19.99. Also on trend are these Skinny Zip Trousers* for only £6.99 reduced from £22.99. What a bargain!

Mango have certainly managed to inject their trademark look into their childrenswear, without making it look too grown up. I have to admit if I had a daughter my debit card would be melting right now.

Delivery is FREE when you spend over £30, as are returns, spend less and it'll cost you £2.95. Collect in store is FREE and is generally a good option.

Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie The Frog £12.49 Delivered @ Amazon/Argos

Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie The Frog £12.49 Delivered @ Amazon/Argos

Two out of my three boys absolutely detest sleeping in darkness so they need a night light. My youngest has about ten different Cloud B toys but the Summer Infant Slumber Buddies toys are much cheaper and do the same thing really. The Frankie the Frog Slumber Buddy is just £12.49 at Amazon just now, including FREE Super Saver Delivery. It seems Amazon have price matched Argos as they have reduced this Frog Night Light to just £12.49. The very same Slumber Buddy would cost you £24.99 from Toys R Us.

The Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Frankie the Frog is a nice soft green colour and is suitable for a boy or a girl. It is suitable to buy for any age as you don't need to give it directly to the child. If your child is over three then you could put it in bed with them as a comfort, but I can't imagine the plastic bit being too comfortable to cuddle.

Basically the Slumber Buddy projects moons and stars onto your child's ceiling in three different colours and can play three lullabies, two nature sounds, a heartbeat. There's a 15 minute auto shut-off too which means the batteries aren't getting drained all night.

You can reserve and collect Frankie the Frog for FREE from your local Argos but if you want delivery it's £3 so you'd be better off buying it from Amazon in that case.

VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set £15 @ Tesco Direct

The Toot Toot collection is a bestseller for VTech, and I am definitely a fan. I have found a right good play set from Tesco Direct selling much, much less than elsewhere. The VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set is reduced from £30 down to just £15. It is £43 at Very, £39.99 at Argos and £32 at Debenhams. Once the word is out that Tesco are selling this popular Toot Toot set, I expect it to sell out very quickly.

The VTech Toot Toot Safari Adventure Park Set is suitable for children aged one years old to five years old. This particular Toot Toot set would be a great Firth Birthday present for a little nipper.

It features seven SmartPoint™ locations that play phrases and tunes and has two different modes of play, as well as three different interactive animal buttons. You get the Toot Toot Rhino included and you can buy other animals to add to it.

VTech First Steps Baby Walker £15 @ Asda George

The Vtech First Steps Baby Walker has been reduced from £22 to just £15 online at Asda George, which is about £10 cheaper than anywhere else at the moment, making it a bit if a bargain.

This walker has a detachable 'learning centre' which can be used as a floor based activity toy before baby can stand, or attached to the main walker when they are more mobile. The light up learning activities cover numbers, shapes, animals, songs, and nursery rhyme melodies. There are moving rattles, discs and rollers to help with manipulation skills as well.

As a walker it has a sturdy design and an easy grip handle to help little ones take their first steps, and the whole thing can be folded down flat for easy storage when not in use.

It's available at this price in either yellow or pink, both are currently in stock, and can be delivered for £2.95, or collected from store for free. If you are looking for a baby toy this is suitable from 6 months of age, has great reviews and is rarely at a price this low.

Up to Half Price in the Mid Season Sale @ Cath Kidston.

 Up to Half Price in the Mid Season Sale @ Cath Kidston.

Cath Kidston have today started their mid season sale, with up to 50% off loads of newly reduced lines. It includes bags, fashion, home, kids, baby and more. I'm thinking Mother's Day gifts myself, as there are so many things that I think my Mum would love, and to be honest so would I!

Prices start from £2 for stationery, £4 for purses, and gift sets that would be lovely for Mums start at just £4.50. If it's bags that your Mum would appreciate then there's one for £19, but most of them start from around £28.

It really does depend on what your Mum is fond of of course, but it's rare to see the skincare and bathing gifts in the sale, and the prices are really reasonable for Cath Kidston products. The household and kitchen goodies in the sale could also be great as Mother's day gifts if she likes this style.

I have also just learned if the existence of a "cinema bag", as these are in the sale at £60. Apparently it's a soft leather cross body bag which is big enough to hold the essentials. You learn something new every day.

Delivery is free when you spend over £50, costs £3.95 when you spend less, or you can click and collect from store for free.

Celebrity Mum Of The Year: The Battle Of The Katies, Round Two

Celebrity Mum Of The Year: The Battle Of The Katies, Round Two

The nominations have just been announced for 2015's Celebrity Mum Of The Year, and there is more controversy this year than ever, even before the winner has been picked.

There are 10 celebs nominated, but the only ones anyone is talking about are the Katies - that's Price and Hopkins in case you were wondering. Both of these (ahem) ladies were contestants not so long ago in the car crash TV that was Celebrity Big Brother, and they came out of it in 1st (Price) and 2nd (Hopkins) place. Both seem to provoke extreme reactions, with most either loving or hating them. But whatever you think of them as celebrities, this competition is about what we think about them as Mothers - and that is even more interesting.

Maternity Wear: 10% Off Plus Free Delivery with code @ H&M

If you've been looking for maternity clothes then you'll be aware that some of them can still be a bit, well, frumpy. Not everyone wants to be shrouded in a flowery tent during their pregnancy (though by month eight you may be happy to put on anything that feels comfy). H&M are one of the stores that have some great maternity wear that is on trend and is also great value for money. If you get some now then you can also get 10% Off and Free Delivery with the code 2938 at the checkout.

The clothing starts from as little as £6.99 (before the discount) and there's a big selection of maternity and breastfeeding tops and dresses, as well as jeans (lots of styles there!), joggers, jumpsuits, jackets and underwear. Not one flowery frumpy tent amongst the lot. In fact you can pretty much dress as you would normally from H&M, with their maternity wear following the same trends and styles as their women's wear.

With the code 2938 you get free delivery as well as your extra 10% off, so there's no extra charges to worry about. The code expires on 1st March, so there's still a few days left to make use of it.

You can find the code 2938 and other H&M codes in our voucher section.

PlayPennies Exclusive: Two Free Weekend Boxes

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 26 February, 2015 at 4:35 pm

PlayPennies Exclusive: Two Free Weekend BoxesWeekend Box has a great offer for PlayPennies readers - sign up using the link below, and you can get your first and your fifth Weekend Boxes for free. Of course that means you have to buy your second, third and fourth boxes, but then you get your fifth free again.

Now, I am a huge fan of these boxes. We have been getting them for about a year, and while we don't do them every weekend, especially in the summer time, we keep them to one side. Over the winter that has been amazing, because it's meant on tap, drop of a hat craft activities for my kids through the cold weather and packing house and moving and unpacking - times when I'd normally not have a lot of time for coming up with craft ideas or even knowing where to find they glue!

At the moment we're saving them up for the Easter break, because knowing that it's Easter weekend, it's bound to be raining, and who wants bored children when you have a house full of people!

Weekend Boxes are normally £15 a month for two deliveries, but you can stop and start as you like, pausing the boxes during term time for example, or whatever works for you!

2 Pink Fitted Cot Sheets - £1.75 @ Asda George

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 26 February, 2015 at 2:33 pm

2 Pink Fitted Cot Sheets - £1.75 @ Asda George

I have no idea why these are so cheap, but I hope it helps someone! I was looking for bargains as usual and for some reason a 2 pack of fitted cot sheets in baby pink will set you back a measly £1.75 online at George at the moment. It may not be the most exciting bargain in the world but it's a pretty brilliant price!

There's not a whole lot to say about them, other than that they are 100% cotton and machine washable. It's a shame there is only the one colour as if they were white, cream or neutral there would be more of us able to use these, but as there are only pink left that might be why they are being sold off.

So, if you have a pink nursery you're in luck. :)
