Bright Starts Jammin Jungle Activity Gym £14.99 Delivered @ Amazon

Needing somewhere for baby to have tummy time or to roll about? Some baby play gyms are extortionate but you can grab bargain if you look in the right places. We have found one for just £14.99, it's the Bright Starts Jammin Jungle Activity Gym from Amazon. As it costs over £10 you get FREE delivery too. This would make a nice new baby gift for a friend or a colleague.

The Bright Starts Jammin Jungle Activity Gym features animals that dangle from the gym frame so that baby can play and be stimulated. Another great thing about this play gym is it's in bright colours and not wishy washy ones that a lot of baby items tend to come in.

The colourful mat base is padded and can be machine washed which is good as babies drool, spit up milk and leak out of nappies sometimes. This play gym can even play up to four different melodies to encourage baby to touch the animal toys.

This Bright Starts Jammin Jungle boasts a four star rating on Amazon which is impressive.

Up To 40% Off Selected Stationery: Items From £2 @ Amazon

Who doesn't love stationery? I have a best friend who goes wild for the stuff. I am not sure what it is specifically that I like about it but I do. Great news for those of you that do love nice writing paraphernalia, Amazon have up to 40% off Selected Stationery Lines.  That includes brands like Paper-Mate and Sharpie. Items start from only £2, not bad huh?

You always need stationery, you can NEVER have too much especially when the kids give it away at school or lose it all the time. My kids drive me nuts for that. Anyway, I always replenish what they lose because they need it for school and for homework.

Here are my top picks: Sharpie Fine Permanent Markers Pack of 12* now £5.09, Paper-Mate Inkjoy 100 Capped Ball Bag of 10* now £2, Berol Colour Broad Pen (Assorted Colours) Pack of 12* now £4.25 and BiC Velleda Pack of 8 Whiteboard Markers* now £4.79.

Spend £10 to get FREE delivery on your Stationery order. There's plenty to choose from, 49 to be precise, that are included in the reductions. Stock up for the new term now!

Cot Bed Mattress: Was £69.99 Now £24.99 With Free Delivery @ Argos Online

Cot Bed Mattress: Was £69.99 Now £24.99 With Free Delivery @ Argos Online

If you are going to be needing a cot bed mattress any time soon then it's a good idea to grab this now while you can. The Tutti Bambini Sprung Cot Bed Mattress was selling for £69.99 at Argos, and has now been reduced to less than half price. It's only £24.99 and has free delivery included as well! You're not likely to get a sprung cot bed mattress at this price again for some time.

This is an online only offer, so you won't find it in stores. As a cot bed mattress it's the size that is also sometimes referred to as a Junior Bed or Toddler Bed, but just to avoid having to return it make sure that the measurements are right for your needs. This is 70cm x 140cm, and is a sprung mattress with foam and is ventilated from the middle. The mattress cover is made using breathable Just-Tec fabric and has a wipe-clean surface. I'd still get a mattress protector to go on the top as well though, as we all know about potty training accidents!

My toddler will be turning two in a couple of months, and although he seems to be happy in his cot for the time being I will be getting one of these mattresses now as it's such a bargain. It will be needed for the toddler bed soon enough!

Many thanks to mobjw @ HUKD.

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe £35 @ Amazon / Tesco

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe £35 @ Amazon / Tesco

We've already been telling you about some of the great deals on outdoor toys that Tesco have at the minute, and it seems that Amazon have decided to price match some of them so you can get these fab prices from either of them. One of the better offers is the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Classic. Both Tesco and Amazon have this for sale at £35, which is a good £5 cheaper then the nearest competitor right now. It's very uncommon that the price ever gets lower than this, so if you were waiting for a deal then this is it.

The Cozy Coupe is one of those toys that is a complete classic, and it recently celebrated it's 30th anniversary! For a toy to continue being popular for that amount of time they are obviously getting it right! It's a wonderful toy car, that is strong and durable, so will likely last until your child is too big to get into it, and longer.

This special anniversary edition has a new look and includes a removable floor to protect children's feet and a handle on the roof for parent push rides. It's also got a higher back, a storage area in the rear, a turning steering wheel, ignition switch and open and close fuel cap.

If you are buying the Cozy Coupe Classic from Tesco delivery is from £3, or you can click and collect for free. If you order it from Amazon you will qualify for free home delivery.

Tesco have so many kids offers on right now that it's hard to keep track of them all. This one gives 25% off selected Kids bedding, meaning that single duvet cover sets now start at £6! There are plenty of different designs to chose from, and the 25% off covers character sets like Frozen, Disney, Hello Kitty, Batman and lots more.

The £6 sets are the plain-ish pink or blue sets, which work great at a spare set or when you don't want to clash with anything else in the room. Then there are loads of really lovely kids sets at £8 with patterns like pirates, flowers, cars, fairies and so on.

From £11 there are the character duvet sets and there are loads at this price. As well Frozen, there's Sofia, Jake, Hello Kitty, Mr Men, Disney Princess, Mickey, Minnie, Peppa, Monster High and Star Wars Rebels. That should keep most kids happy!

The 25% off Kids Bedroom offer is on at Tesco until 15th April, but who knows if stocks will last until then.  You can get your order delivered from £3, or you can click and collect from stores for free.

Story Books For Children By Sir Chris Hoy

Story Books For Children By Sir Chris Hoy

How do you feel about celebs who morph into self-styled children's authors? We're not generally huge fans in our house, but I am excited about the news that Sir Chris Hoy is set to write children's books.

The BBC reports:

The six-times Olympic cycling champion Sir Chris Hoy is turning author to co-write a series of six children's books.

Flying Fergus, is about a nine-year-old boy who inherits his dad's rusty old bike - only to discover there is more to it than meets the eye.

A non-fiction book to encourage children to have fun cycling, keep safe, and record their cycling experiences will also be published.

The books will be published next March, and there'll be a series of six books, each aimed at children aged between five and eight years old.

I love the idea of someone with hard-won achievements turning that expertise into creative stories for kids. My lads would have loved these when they were younger, I reckon, and I'll definitely be stashing them away for when my daughter is older.

Do you have a favourite famous children's author? Anyone remember those books Madonna wrote...?

Kids Eat For £1 Mon - Weds This Easter @ Fayre & Square

For the next two weeks Fayre and Square are running a special Easter promotion where a childs meal is just £1 when accompanied by an adult buying a main meal. That make a nice cheap lunch out for the family this Easter at the Wacky Warehouse fun pubs!

The offer runs for the next two weeks from 30th March until 15th April, on Mondays to Wednesdays only, so this means it even covers the Bank Holiday Monday, which is very unusual.

The terms seem fairly simple, but you only get one kids £1 meal per full paying adult. All the terms and conditions can be found on the link above, and you can also get the kids menus there as well.

Kids Sticker & Activity Books: 4 for £10 with Free Delivery @ Amazon

School holidays are coming - don't panic! The temptation is there though, especially if we get the usual April showers and the kids are stuck inside. This Amazon offer should help out a bit though - they are selling a selection of more than 200 stickers and activity books that are up to £12.99 each at 4 for £10 with free delivery! Lots of these books are around £4 each, but if you sort from high priced to low you can get amazing value for money.

These include loads of new titles, and mega sticker books that are good for hours of fun for the kids, and there are a really great mixture of titles included covering lots of different ages and subjects.

I'm really pleased to see a few Bing titles, as this is a big favourite with my toddler, and he'll be happy scribbling away in those. There are character titles like Thomas, Disney Princess, Monster High and more, as well as more generic titles with pirates, princesses and so on.

There are Easter sticker and activity books that would make an alternative to the choccy eggs, and some really good ones for travel and holidays as well. There's even a box set of Baby's First Books included!

There's no voucher code to enter for the offer, it will automatically take off the discount when you add your chosen 4 titles to the basket.

FREE Lego UFO Mini Build: Tuesday 2nd April In Lego Stores

by Lisa Hayes in Freebies on 26 March, 2015 at 3:12 pm

FREE Lego UFO Mini Build: Tuesday 2nd April In Lego Stores

If you like to take part in the Free Monthly Lego Mini Builds then here's your advance warning that the next one will be a week from today.

Next Thursday 2nd April from 4pm to 6pm children aged 6 to 14 will be able to visit their local Lego Store and take part in the mini build event. They will get shown how to build a mini UFO, and when they have finished they will be able to take it home with them for free.

The mini build does not usually need to be booked in advance, it's a case of turn up and wait, though this one could be busy as some schools will have started their Easter break. It's only available while stocks last, and it's one model per child. Adult Lego fans, sorry this one is not for you. ;)

Enjoy your free Lego!

Kids Wellies from £5 @ John Lewis

Kids Wellies from £5 @ John Lewis

John Lewis have had the footwear sale on for a while now, and Nada picked out some great bargains from Clarks and Start-Rite shoes. It seems that the wellies are now having a chunk taken off the price as well, with loads of styles available for just £5!

These include funky floral styles in the girls section, as well as Peppa Pig ones, and in the boys footwear section there are Spiderman and George Pig ones for £5 as well.

I know wellies aren't a purchase we get excited about making, but they're essential for kids in the UK all year round I'd say, and character ones normally cost a few pounds more than this.

You can use the free click and collect service from John Lewis or participating Waitrose stores, or home delivery is from £3.

Extra 10% off ALL Sale Items (with code) @ The Disney Store

The Disney Store's half price sale has been on for a few days now, but if you were wavering then how about another 10% off the sale prices? All you need to do is enter the promotional code EXTRA10 at the checkout.

Click here for the Half Price Sale @ The Disney Store*

  • Discount: 10% off
  • Valid on sale items only.
  • Expires: 30/03/15
  • Code: EXTRA10

I've checked, and the code does work on the Frozen sale items, though last time a code worked on Frozen Disney stopped it pretty quickly!

Although the £4.95 postage charge can put us off ordering (sort it out Disney!) the prices are so low on some of these that you're still making a big saving. The cheapest item works out at £1.62 with this code! There are slippers that will be £1.80, shoes and wellies for £3.24, and clothing starts from £3.41! For branded Disney merchandise these are really great prices.

The pyjamas are a super price at £5.04 per pair, and it's very tempting to stock up on those! My favourite is the Darth Vader hat, and at £2.15 I'm reaching for my purse now!

Thanks to Huggett93 @ HUKD for the voucher code.

 Mum Fined £70 For Parking In Parent & Child Space

How annoying is it when you drive around the car park and find the Parent and Child spaces are all full up? It's easy to accept that if the people using them have a child in tow. Getting baby in and out of a car seat can be a task and a half when parked in a normal space. It's not even about being closer to the shop, it's about being able to get your children in and out of the car without scratching the car next to you with your car door.

Chad Valley Farmyard Daisy Rock 'N' Roller Walker £8.99 @ Argos

Argos are churning the bargains out today. If you have a tot with a birthday soon then you might want to snap up this Chad Valley Farmyard Daisy Rock N Walker. It was £26.66 and is now only £8.99. It is a two in one toy so for under nine quid this really is a steal. It is nice and bright and looks like lots of fun for little people. It's suitable for children aged 12 months and over so ideal for those first birthdays.

The beauty of the Chad Valley Farmyard Daisy Rock N Roller Walker is that it is a walker and a rocking toy too. Which means you don't have to buy two separate toys which not only saves you £££'s but saves you space too. Big toys can clutter living rooms etc so if you can have a multi-functioning toy it's better.

To transform this Farmyard toy from a rocker to a walker it's a matter of popping the casters on the bottom. It certainly looks like it would appeal to little tiddlers.

You can Reserve and Collect the Chad Valley Farmyard Daisy Rock N Roller Walker for FREE for your nearest Argos or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Spider-man/Disney Princess Inflatable Sets £2.49 @ Argos

Been thinking about taking you little one swimming? If they can't swim a lot of pools won't let you in unless your child has arm bands or a ring on. It keeps them afloat and generally kids are happy enough to wear them. Argos have reduced two Inflatable Sets from £4.99 to just £2.49. A Spider-man one and a Disney Princess one.

Each set contains THREE items, a pair of Water Wings (Arm Bands), a ring and a ball. All require inflation but it doesn't take much hot air, well it's easy for me as I am full of it.

The Disney Princess Set is pink and features Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White and Belle. The Spider-man one as the arachnid man himself all over all three (four) items.

Each inflatable set comes with a puncture repair kit and they fold flat for storage when deflated of course. They are handy for stuffing into swim bags as they don't take much room up at all.

You can Reserve and Collect both sets for FREE from your nearest Argos store or pay £3.95 for home delivery.
