Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set £8.81 Was £16.99 @ Amazon

This Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Say Please Tea Set is reduced from £16.99 to £8.81 at Amazon right now.

Loads of you missed out on this one when Amazon reduced it recently and you asked us to keep an eye on it. Well it's just dropped in price and is now at £8.81.

The Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea set has 3 play modes; learning, music and imagination. Tip the tea pot to hear fun sound effects, press the teabag to hear a song, or lift the lid to learn about opposites and manners. It also comes with 2 teacups and a shape-sorting cookie tray with 3 'teethable' cookies.

This item has scored 4.8 out of a possible 5 stars in customer reviews, and here's a fairly typical one:

"A lovely little present for any little girl! My daughter is only one and already understands the concept of drinking out of a tea cup while moving to the music. A lovely way to learn words and manners while having fun."

It's suitable for children aged between 6 months and three years old but it does require 2 AA batteries.

Of course Amazon only offers free delivery for Prime customers on orders under £10 but did you know if you have an Amazon locker nearby you may be able to bag that free delivery to there? Find out more about that here* Otherwise it's p&p or one of those cheap little items to make it up to £10 like the Italian Chocolate Mini Heart* 150g bag at £1.50.

Time to start your Christmas shopping?

Girls' Scuff Resistant Bow School Shoes £12 @ BHS

Girls' Scuff Resistant Bow School Shoes £12 @ BHS

I am dreading going shopping for school shoes later on this month - it's always carnage at my local department store, but I'm toying with the idea of avoiding all that palava and buying school shoes online instead. Have you ever done that, and did it work out well?

I can't vouch for the quality of these shoes and I imagine the old adage 'you get what you pay for' might well be true when it comes to inexpensive school shoes, but then if you've got a child who is dainty of feet then they might fare just fine.

These black patent girls' school shoes are pretty bargaintastic at just £18, too.

And for boys what about these Sam Scuff Resistant Double Velcro trainers which are just £14? Or these Hi-Top Trainers are just £16.

There is a wide range of school shoes for both boys and girls at pretty affordable prices, so just have a rummage around or use the search tool to check out what's available in your children's shoe sizes.

Delivery is free if you spend £25 or more, too!

Grobag 1.0 Tog Travel Sleeping Bag £19 Was £29 @ Kiddicare

Grobag 1.0 Tog Travel Sleeping Bag £19 Was £29 @ Kiddicare

Need a lighter baby sleeping bag now for the summer nights? Pop over to Kiddicare then, where this Grobag 1.0 tog sleeping bag (6-18 months) is reduced from £29 to £19 right now - and it's a special travel version, too, so it's ideal for holidays.

I love Grobags - they're always such lovely quality and seem to wash and 'wear' really well compared to cheaper brands.

This one has specifically designed additional features that make it suitable for use in a buggy or car seat; the two way zip  can be closed around a 5 point harness, and it also has back vent to allow a harness strap to be fastened. And when you're not travelling and want to use this as a normal sleeping bag in a cot or bed, you can close the velcro fastening and use it as normal. I love this idea, and wish I'd known these existed when my lot were little!

It's machine washable and can be tumble dried on a low heat, too.

Standard UK delivery from Kiddicare is free if you spend £29.99 or more, otherwise it's £2.99.

Huge Reductions on Laundry Detergents And Fabric Conditioners In-Store @ Selected Branches Of Asda

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 8:49 pm

Huge Reductions on Laundry Detergents And Fabric Conditioners In-Store @ Selected Branches Of Asda

In our house I'm literally never on top of the washing, so I'm absurdly excited to hear that Asda has an amazing in-store offer on various brands of fabric conditioner and laundry detergent right now.

You need to move fast to nab these though - we're hearing that they're flying off the shelves all over the country, and savvy shoppers are cleaning up. (Sorry... dodgy pun intended.)

We've no way of knowing which stores are doing these deals but judging by how many of you have been in touch to tell us all about it, we reckon it looks as if it's a nationwide clearance.

Items on offer include Asda Lotus Blue fabric conditioner (40p), as well as Red Poppy & Patchouli (40p) and Exotic Orchid & Clove (50p) fragrances, too. The bottles on sale are the 750ml ones containing enough detergent for 21 washes.

Ariel washing tabs (£1.12 for 12) and Persil washing tabs (£1.71 for 20) also seem to be seriously reduced.

All in all, it's worth cruising over to your local Asda store now. Would you grab me a cold bottle of wine and some Doritos while you're there?

VTech Baby Moosical Beads £5.50 Was £10 @ Amazon

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 8:18 pm

VTech Baby Moosical Beads £5.50 Was £10 @ Amazon

This cute cuddly cow from VTech is on special offer at Amazon right now, reduced from £10.99 to £5.50.

If you spend £10 in total or indeed if you're a Prime customer then delivery will also be free.

I know lots of parents love VTech toys for their educational qualities. This particular item is a soft fabric cow featuring plastic rings that are easy for little fingers to grab, plus two light-up push buttons to encourage interaction. The spinning block introduces concepts of day and night, so maybe it'll even help your little one grant you a bit more shut-eye at night!

Other learning concepts include A-B-C, 1-2-3, shapes, and colours, and it's billed as helping developing brains to get to grips with cause and effect, at the same time as helping motor skills.

The reviews are very positive, but apparently you'll be singing about playing with bovines until... well, the cows come home. On top of all that it's seriously cute, too!

Lots send you money off vouchers, of course hoping you’ll buy from them, but you never know what might come in handy when. Emma's diary for example send you vouchers and these can be handy to use on already discounted items, for example when we blogged this baby monitor* using the voucher from Emma's Diary it took the price down to just £10 (RRP £50)

The changing bag from Boots is quite a well known one and following the tip above you can bag an even better bargain. The same goes for the Bounty packs, you can redeem these vouchers elsewhere but check out the info above to make sure you choose wisely.

There are a few simple rules I’d follow which aren’t essential but just make life easier. Sign up using a spam or throwaway email, companies do like to contact you by email and I always entered my telephone number as 000000000, or similar, where possible.

Five Bits Of Baby Gear You Will Never Need

Five Bits Of Baby Gear You Will Never Need

Image credit: Flickr.com/0_kelso_0

1. Bath thermometer
My mum laughed out loud when I showed her the fancy bath thermometer which I bought in a feverish, last-minute dash around the shops shortly before the birth of my third child. Having successfully raised two small humans prior to that - neither of whom ever suffered from hypothermia or scalds during bath time - she wasn’t sure why I’d caved to all the silly hype around the endless piles of stuff that new parents are persuaded to buy.

“What’s wrong with dipping your elbow in the bath water to check the temperature like we did in the old days,” she smirked? “Nobody profits from that,” I muttered bitterly. She was right. of course. My bath thermometer now languishes in the bathroom gathering dust. Save your money. Use your elbows. They're free.

Urban Racers 16" Kids' Bike £14 Was £50 @ Tesco Direct

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Urban Racers 16" Kids' Bike £14 Was £50 @ Tesco Direct

Bikes aren't cheap, but if one of your little rider is due an upgrade for his or her wheels before the summer ends then check out this deal at Tesco Direct - the 16" Urban Racers Kids' bike is just £14 right now, reduced from £50.

The stabilisers are detachable, and the steel frame measures 10.5" and has rigid steel forks and eye-catching graphics. It also comes with crash pads, chain guard, a caliper brake and a cushioned saddle.

Self-assembly is required but judging by the customer reviews, that's pretty straightforward.

Standard delivery will take 2-5 days and costs just £3.00, so that's £17 for this bike delivered. Alternatively you can opt for the click and collect service to pick your purchase up in store with no cost.

Doc McStuffins 'Stuffy' 10inch Dragon Plush Toy £3.51 (using code) @ Debenhams (Expired)

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 3:41 pm

Doc McStuffins 'Stuffy' 10inch Dragon Plush Toy £3.51 (using code) @ Debenhams (Expired)

This was originally £13, has 70% off and is now £3.90 and you can grab an extra 10% using disocunt code FV39.

This 10inch plush toy from Disney's Doc McStuffins comes in a blue 'Stuffy' dragon character design to take home and cuddle.

These will go quickly I’d imagine so I'm not going to spend a whole lot of time writing about it. Suffice to say it’s a 10 inch plush “Stuffy” from the hugely popular Doc Mc Stuffins show and any fans will love it!

You can get this delivered to a Debenhams near you free of charge or home delivery will add £3.99 to your total.

Wooden Hammering Bench £2.99 Was £9.99 @ Argos

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Wooden Hammering Bench £2.99 Was £9.99 @ Argos

Check out this cute wooden hammering bench - it's reduced from £9.99 to just £2.99 at Argos right now, but do note that it's only available for reserving and collecting in store - home delivery is not an option. There's a 4 day wait for in-store collection at my local branch, but I can live with that for such a bargain.

This is one of those baby toys that parents tend to both love and loathe in equal measure. I love that it kept my boys entertained for ages when they were babies, but I used to loathe the wails of misery that would inevitably ensue when they accidentally walloped themselves in the face with the hammer. Oopsie.

Hmm. Anyway, if used with careful supervision, this is a fab little toy for tots who are just getting to grips with those all-important fine motor skills. Picking up the wooden pegs and using the hammer will help work the same skills of hand-eye co-ordination and muscles that children will use when they start learning how to write and hold a pencil, so you can even satisfy yourself with the knowledge that an afternoon spent banging away on a hammering bench is preparing your child for educational success!

Battery Operated Official Land Rover Ride On £89.91 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 11:29 am

Battery Operated Official Land Rover Ride On £89.91 Delivered @ Amazon

Wow! If you want this then get clicking right now. Amazon have this battery operated OFFICIAL Land Rover ride on for only £89.91 delivered. This has an RRP of £299. Whether that is an accurate selling price for this or not, it’s current price is a bargain.

This official Land Rover ride on has features galore. Working headlights, horn, forward and reverse gears. It is operated by foot pedal and goes to a maximum speed of 3kmh. Check out the chrome grill on the front and the chunky wheels, this is an exact replica of the real deal and I just love it.

Recommended for age three years and above, but this looks roomy. I reckon you will have a fight on your hands getting your child to part with this once they have outgrown it. For added safety, there's a seatbelt for your child to wear.

The battery is chargeable and comes with a charger and will not doubt take a fair few hours to charge. Usually with these type of battery operated ride ons you get about an hour to two hours riding time.

They are sure to be noticed with one of these. You can pick up Land Rover lookalikes for this price but not usually the fully licenced real Land Rover toy.

50% off Stationery & Further £2 Off When You Spend £5 @ Tesco Direct

50% off Stationery & Further £2 Off When You Spend £5 @ Tesco Direct

We are all on the hunt for affordable back to school items. Stationery costs can add up to an astromonical amount. Tesco Direct are offering 50% off of selected stationery lines. That is not all, spend over £5 and £1 will automatically be deducted from your total spend. Nope, still not finished, add eCoupon TD-YN9J and get yet another £1 off.

So what can you get? How about the Pentel Classroom Essentials Kit (£4) plus the Cute Zebra A5 Notebook (£2) for only £4 once you add both to the checkout and enter the eCoupon in the box. Of course these are only an example. In order to get both of the discounts you must add at least £6 worth of stationery to your order.

There’s Sharpies from £2.40 and these are just fab for writing names on school uniform, gym kits, pencil cases and anything else that needs branded. Lots of ring binders which are handy for storing project work in. Many different assortments of pens, pencils and crayons.

Items start at only 80p so you can get a fair amount of stuff for your money. This deal could not have come at a better time. I predict things to sell out quickly as news spreads of this deal, so don’t hang around if you wish to snap up a bargain.

Collect your bargain stationery items for free from your local Tesco or have it delivered to your front door for £3.

You will find eCoupons like this and more at our Vouchers section. Why not check it out?

Clarks BinnieDots White Girls Shoes £15 Delivered @ Clarks

by Nada in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 9:52 am

Clarks BinnieDots White Girls Shoes £15 Delivered @ Clarks

Is your little girl needing a nice pair of shoes? Clarks have their BinnieDots girls’ shoes with over half price off making them only £15 delivered. Only the white ones are reduced, the other colour (Anthracite) are still £34. I could not find them for less than £25 anywhere.

Made out of soft white leather these Clarks BinnieDots little girls’ shoes are adorable. They feature leather lining and soft suede collar, they need comfort and support when their feet are at such a developing stage.

These are available in sizes seven to nine and a half in an F or a G fitting. These would be a good purchase for your little one starting nursery/preschool, as they would be comfortable and would match most outfits. They are in a Mary Jane style of shoe but I think they have a bit of a sporty twist to them.

With pink polka dots all over, I am sure these would become a firm favourite with most little females. As if the polka dots weren’t enough, there’s a pretty pink bow at the front of each shoe. With a riptape (which I am assuming means Velcro) fastening these will be easy for your wee one to slip on and off themselves.

You can of course collect these Clarks BinnieDots Girls’ shoes from any Clarks store and have your child’s feet measured or you can have them delivered for absolutely free.  They even offer Collect+ free of charge if that's suits better.

25% Off Tu Clothing @ Sainsbury's Starts 19th August

25% Off Tu Clothing @ Sainsbury's Starts 19th August

It's not available yet, but we knew that what with the school holidays you may need to pop it in your diary, so we're giving you an early heads up: The Sainsbury's 25% off TU Clothing sale starts on Tuesday the 19th of August.

I sometimes look at my daughter and from one day to the next you can see how she's grown. She is blessed to come from a tall family and definitely making her way up the tape measure with speed. As a result, however, I seem to spend half my life buying new clothes for her and getting rid of her old clothes. It gets expensive, for sure.

Now, TU has this 25% off sale every so often, but for parents of children, it's never too often, is it! TU don't sell online, so you'll have to head in to the supermarket for your bargains, whether you want to start stocking up on school uniforms for September, or buy a few summer bits and pieces.

If you have any vouchers, remember to use them to double up your Nectar points, or get discounts on your fuel.

Thanks to mavs @ HUKD!

Half Price Selected Baby Sleeping Bags Starting From £7.49 @ Dunelm Mill

by Nada in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 9:13 am

Half Price Selected Baby Sleeping Bags Starting From £7.49 @ Dunelm Mill

If you are on the lookout for some cheap baby bedding then looky here. We found these baby sleeping bags (or sleepers as Dunhelm calls them) with 50% off. The cheapest is £7.49 and the dearest is only £8.49, not bad at all.

The Charlie & Friends Collection is the one pictured above. This is the only one that I would deem as unisex really, as it’s white with multi-coloured detail. The 0-6 month size is £7.49 and for an extra £1 you can get the size 6-12 months.

The Maisie Mouse Collection Sleeper was £14.99 and is now only £7.49. This is a very pink girly design and Dunhelm Mill sells other pieces to co-ordinate. Although if you just bought plain pink sheets etc they would match just as well. This one is available in age 6-12 months only.

The Tweet Tweet Collection Sleeper is a very pretty bird design. This sleep is predominantly pink therefore more suitable for a baby girl. This one is now £8.49 having had an original selling price of £16.99. This one is only available in size 6-12 months.

I am a fan of sleeping bags for babies. No more worrying about blankets over faces or baby getting all tangled in the covers. My Daniel is a thumb sucker and likes the blanket right by his mouth. The amount of times he has nearly given me a heart attack with pulling the blanket over his face is unreal. I started using these and I cannot tell you how much more relaxed I am putting him into his cot.

All of the sleeping bags (sleepers) featured in this post are not only machine washable, but are suitable for tumble drying and ironing. Super, with the colder months looming and not being able to hang washing out. Having the luxury to tumble dry these might just be a bit of a Godsend.

You can reserve and collect your baby sleepers for free from your local Dunelm Mill or pay £3.95 to have it delivered.

Plum Giant Octagonal Outdoor Play Wooden Sand Pit £48.34 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 1 August, 2014 at 8:22 am

Plum Giant Octagonal Outdoor Play Wooden Sand Pit £48.34 Delivered @ Amazon

Wanting a sandpit for the kids? Amazon are selling the Plum giant octagonal sandpit for £48.34 delivered. A rather super price, as this retails for £74.99 at Boots, £99.99 at Kiddicare and £99.99 at Tesco Direct.

The Plum giant octagonal sandpit isn’t your normal, tiny, little sandpit. Oh no, this is GIANT. The kids can comfortably play within the sandpit. Another thing that appeals to me about this one, is it’s made by Plum. I really do rate Plum outdoor toys. I like their natural looking products that blend in nicely into the garden.

With this sandpit, Plum offer a twelve month warranty that covers wood rot and insect damage. For me, that says a lot about this manufacturer. They certainly have faith in their range of wooden toy products. It’s made from premium FSC certified timber that has had all corners rounded and smoothed out for suitability as a child’s toy.

Of course, you don’t have to fill this with sand, you can use it as a ball pool. I did blog about a smaller Plum sandpit a few days back, and I said that I didn’t think it was deep enough. Well, this sandpit is a lot bigger and could make a fine ball pool.

It comes complete with a ground sheet to prevent anything growing through the sand. Also included is the protective cover. I have a phobia about cats pooing in sand pits as I once found some in my own pit when I was little. The neighbour’s cat had obviously seen it and couldn’t resist what looked like a giant cat litter tray.

This is supplied flat packed, so be prepared for some building. Apparently, it will take one adult, one hour to assemble. I never quite believe these suggestions, but that’s perhaps because I am not very good at putting anything together that isn’t edible.

The Plum giant octagon sandpit can withstand up to 50kg of weight and is suitable for children aged one and a half plus.

Did I mention that Amazon are offering free delivery when you purchase this Plum giant octagon sandpit? If it’s a giant sandpit you want then I wouldn’t stick around too long, as this really is a great price for a pit of it’s size.

Children's Clothes From £1.99 Delivered To Store @ Zara

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 31 July, 2014 at 11:05 pm

Children's Clothes From £1.99 Delivered To Store @ Zara

Zara have some gorgeous clothes but they also have a cracking sale on at the minute. The tops above* for example are just £1.99. They're available in the Pastel Green and White shown above and also in Fuchisa and in sizes 3 months to 3 years.

There are so many lovely things and lots have 75% off, I've linked the categories below to make searching easier for the sizes and gender you need.

This Gathered Dress* is now £5.99, reduced from £22.99 and is just adorable. There are so many beautiful dresses and outfits on this link for both boys and girls, well not dresses for boys obviously but you get my point (hopefully!)

I think if you have any holidays or special occasions coming up soon, it's well worth a look on here. The clothes are just that little bit different from the likes of Next or Debenhams. While I love both stores, my daughter has turned up at events wearing the same Next dress as at least two other girls in the past. Some of my friends will no doubt shop in this sale of course but I can only try!

You can get your items delivered to a Zara store near you for free or opt for home delivery for an additional £3.95. Unless you’re spending over £50, then it’s free!

VTech Baby Ride On Alphabet Train £29.99 Delivered @ Toys R Us

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 31 July, 2014 at 10:04 pm

VTech Baby Ride On Alphabet Train £29.99 Delivered @ Toys R UsToys R Us are selling the VTech Baby Ride on Alphabet Train for £34.99, reduced from £49.99.

The reviews on the VTech Baby Ride on Alphabet Train are excellent, and the people who've bought it have good things to say about it!

This grow-with-me toy has 3 features, including floor, walker and ride-on play. It has 13 block letters that teach letters, objects and animals. There are 'follow-me-lights' and motion sensors that 'encourage independent play' and the motion sensor activates songs and fun phrases.

From the looks of it, it's also a ride-on that two children can enjoy at the same time, and that's pretty great, as any parent of young children will know.

Chad Valley Canopy Climber with Slide £37.49 @ Argos

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 31 July, 2014 at 9:08 pm

Chad Valley Canopy Climber with Slide £37.49 @ Argos

The Argos bargains on outdoor toys keep coming today and the latest is the Canopy Climber With Slide reduced from £149.99 to £37.49. Again it’s home delivery only so £46.44 delivered.

Argos really are coming out with some great offers on kids outdoor toys today. We've had the Little Tikes Garden Cottage* reduced to £49.99 and the Chad Valley Wooden Playhouse* at £74.99. Looks like a good time to make those outdoor purchases for the kids if you've been looking over the last few weeks and not jumped in yet.

This one is described on Argos as :

Kids will have hours of fun in the sun playing on this climbing frame and slide set from Chad Valley. Swing across the monkey bars and hide out in the canopy den and then race down the slide!

10 reviews on this and overall pretty good, some buyers felt it took a while to put together but a typical review is :

This is a nice looking climbing frame, being used by age range of 2 - 11! The older children are too tall for the monkey bars but they still enjoy it. It's not too high to be scary for the pre-schoolers and high enough to be exciting for the older kids.

It was easy to put up (for me as I watched my husband do it!), not too much cussing going on and it took him a couple of evenings.

What do you think?
