Various Children's Single Duvet Cover Sets £8 @ Tesco Direct

As the price of everything keeps increasing steeply, we try to find affordable essentials too. Bedding can cost £££'s and I don't know about you but we go through a LOT of it in this house. Kids are sick on it, piddle the bed, drool all over it so it does need washed very, very frequently. I have found that it doesn't matter how much you pay for it, they fade and become worn. That's why I snap up bargains like these Children's Duvet Cover Sets for £8 at Tesco Direct.

There are a total of nine of them at this super price, all of which were reduced from £10.

Here they are:

How Do You Get Baby To Sleep?

How Do You Get Baby To Sleep?

As brilliant as my babies were at sleeping, no-one gets a baby that sleeps through the night straight from birth. We all use our own techniques to settle our precious bundles into the Land of Slumber, but we have came across a less conventional method. A Father who pops his baby into a remote controlled Truck! Yes, I am telling you the truth. It's not something we would recommend you do for obvious safety reasons, but it still made us gush lovingly.

I used a variety of methods when my three sons were newborns:

White Noise: You can get FREE apps, toys like Ewan the Dream Sheep*, or even CD's*. We used this when all else failed and boy did it work a treat. We didn't rate Ewan the Dream Sheep though.

Cuddling and Swaddling: When your baby is crying it is your natural reaction to nurture them and rightly so. The thing is when you need your sleep too, as nice as it is, you cannot cuddle them all night. Swaddling* can make a baby feel secure enough to nod off.

Breastfeeding/Bottle Feeding: Maybe baby is hungry? Pop them on the breast or feed them their bottle. Just remember to wind them properly.

Rocking: A rocking motion can be like Kryptonite to babies. I had a rocking crib* and I can tell you that it did do the trick.

Lullabies: Babies love to hear mummy or daddy's voice, although mine never enjoyed my singing.

The list goes on.... what's your tips for getting baby to sleep?

Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox £25 @ Asda George/Amazon

We are always telling our kids that their rooms are a tip so why not give them a Skip to chunk all their junk into? The Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox just has to be one of the coolest Toyboxes I have ever seen.  Just now it is only £25 at both Asda George and Amazon just now. There aren't many left at Amazon at this price so you may need to order it from Asda George.

The Kidsave JCB Skip Toybox would look awesome in a boys or a girls bedroom. If you have a digger fan then they will just go crazy for the fact that this is a JCB Skip.

There's nothing to say what this JCB Skip Toybox is made of, it could be MDF, Plastic or even Wood. All we know is that it comes flat packed and assembly is required. It looks like it all slots together and doesn't look difficult to build.

You can Click and Collect the JCB Skip Toybox for FREE from any Asda store or pay £2.95 for home delivery. Delivery is FREE when ordering from Amazon.

It is SO easy to use especially with the brush that's included. Sprinkle some Mineral Foundation into the lid, swirl your brush in it, hold your brush vertically and tap the tip of the handle, then buff it into the skin. Repeat until desired coverage is achieved.

My very own special tip is, when my skin is dry and flaky, is to mix some powder with a scent-free moisturiser. This is because I don't like the feeling of the powder when my skin is this bad.

Shades available are light, medium beige and medium tan.

Sanway Range Rover Style Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery £84.08 Delivered @ Amazon

Sanway Range Rover Style Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery £84.08 Delivered @ Amazon

Picture this...a nice warm day, you sprawled out soaking up the rays and VROOM your little Dude or Dudette comes round the corner in the coolest ride on you have ever seen. He he! I am a massive fan of battery operated ride ons and I know a lot of you mums and dads are too. That's why when I saw this Range Rover lookalike I just had to share. Get the Sanway Range Rover STYLE Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery for just £84.08 including FREE delivery.

The Sanway Range Rover Style Kids Ride On with Rechargeable Battery is pretty impressive. This ride on toy can drive forwards and can reverse. It can be steered left or right also. As soon as your child's foot leaves the accelerator it automatically brakes.

It makes realistic car sounds and even has working lights. There is a seatbelt to ensure that your child doesn't fall out and cause injury to themselves. My favourite feature is that there is an MP3 socket, preloaded with music.

This is a very show-offy ride on for those little ones who like to be noticed.

Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt £3.99 @ Argos

Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt £3.99 @ Argos

Elsa is still in high demand and no wonder, a truly positive, modern heroine for young girls. The kids love her and so do us parents, truth be known we have wanted to be a bit like her ourselves. Argos have reduced the price of the Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt from £6.99 to just £3.99. What a bargain! There appears to be plenty of stock availability across the UK, so your chances of bagging yourself one are high.

The Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt is vivid blue in colour, which is in keeping with the icy theme. There is a large motif that reads 'Elsa' and features her face surrounded by snowflakes.

This T-Shirt is made from 100% cotton, so it'll be gentle enough for sensitive skins plus nice and cool for the summer. It can be machine washed at forty degrees and most likely tumble dried too but I would read the label to double check.

Sizes available are 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 years and they are all in stock.

You can reserve and collect the Disney Frozen Elsa T-Shirt for FREE from your nearest Argos or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Minecraft Lights from £13.99 Delivered @ Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 March, 2015 at 8:42 pm

Minecraft Lights from £13.99 Delivered @ Amazon

Do you think all these cool lights are getting cheaper because we changed the clocks and the days are longer? Actually I don't think I'm that bothered why, but these Minecraft lights are cheaper now than I have ever seen them, and that's good news.

The Minecraft Light-Up Redstone Ore has an RRP of £29.99, has been selling for around £16 previously, and now the Amazon seller London Tykes has them for £13.99. Not bad at all!

My favourite (yes, I'm geeky) is the Minecraft Light Up Torch which is now £15.69 , sold by ThinkGeek (ah..). That's about £5 less than it was selling for recently.

Then there's the Minecraft Light-Up Diamond Ore at £16.79, sold by Tru Inertia.

All these are sold by Amazon sellers, but all are fulfilled by Amazon themselves, so all qualify for free delivery. From reviews it looks like the Torch is the best value as it's so much bigger, but if you are a Minecraft fan whether old or young I think any of these would be a really welcome gift.

These aren't exactly cheap at £10 per sarnie, but as a quirky gift they're definitely original!

Clearance Hello Kitty Jewellery & Gifts from £2.99 @ Argos

New to the Clearance section at Argos online are these Hello Kitty bits and bobs of jewellery and gifts, all of which are pretty big reductions, as all are less than half price.

Here's what they have in the clearance:

All of these seem to have really good stock levels, and all feature the same strawberry Hello Kitty design, so you can mix and match them as well. I imagine there will be plenty of little girls who would love these, and at up to 60% off they are a good price too.

As always from Argos, reserve and collect is free, or home delivery charges are from £3.95

Penguin Rucksack or Lunchbox: was £14, now £5 each @ Marks & Spencer

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 March, 2015 at 4:56 pm

Penguin Rucksack or Lunchbox: was £14, now £5 each @ Marks & Spencer

These cute Penguin backpack and lunchbox were both selling for £14, and have been reduced down to £5 each at Marks and Spencer.

The rucksack says it's for younger boys, but is 30cm high, so it's not a mini toddler size, but a child's one, and has adjustable straps plus a mini handle at the top for hanging it up. This would be great for nursery school, or for days out with a little one.

The penguin lunchbox has a thinsulate lightweight and moisture resistant insulation layer to keep the food cool and fresh. Again this is a fairly substantial size at 24cm tall.

If you were to buy both you would be saving £18 on the original price and getting them for only £10. You can click  and collect these for free from your local Marks and Spencer store.

Minions Illumi-mate Lamp: Stuart or Dave £6 @ Asda George

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 29 March, 2015 at 4:24 pm

Minions Illumi-mate Lamp: Stuart or Dave £6 @ Asda George

These look brilliant. You can get minions  lamps for just £6 at Asda George, when the only other place I can find selling them has them for £10 more than this!

You can choose from Dave or Stuart, they are a nice tall 13cm high, and are battery operated so you can pop them wherever you want. Because it's an LED light it doesn't get hot to touch either.

It says it's a colour changing light, but apart from the regular yellow I don't know what colours a Minion is likely to change to. Batteries are included in it already. It looks like it would make a great night light, and from it's size would be portable enough to take on holiday or sleepovers as well.

You can click and collect Dave or Stuart from your local Asda for free, or delivery is from £2.95.

Parents To Be Reported When Children Play Age Inappropriate Games

by Luschka van Onselen in Misc on 29 March, 2015 at 12:17 pm

Parents To Be Reported When Children Play Age Inappropriate GamesHead Teachers of 16 schools in Cheshire have made the news today by sending out letters to parents saying that they will be reported for letting their under-aged children play games that are not age appropriate. The games mentioned specifically were the 18-limited Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty which contain 'excessive violence' and allow players to e.g pick up prostitutes and use the controller to perform sexual acts.

This decision by the Head Teachers follows the ruling from David Cameron earlier this month that adults in positions of responsibility could face prison sentences of up to five years if they failed to report allegations of the neglect or abuse of children and Mary Hennessy Jones, the Head Teacher who drafted the letter to parents said:

"We are trying to help parents to keep their children as safe as possible in this digital era.  It is so easy for children to end up in the wrong place and parents find it helpful to have some very clear guidelines."

Personally I would have thought the 18+ sign on the game was a pretty clear guideline already and I think it's a great, bold and brave move from these teachers - but it's easy for me to say as I'm still on the 'right' side of this problem: my children are 5 and 3 and my biggest struggle is giving the educational Wild Krats as much airtime as My Little Pony. For parents of older children this could create some real difficulty - not to mention the effect on Social Services, having to sift through perceived neglect through permissive parenting compared to actual neglect.

Most parents who have removed TV from their children's day will tell you how they've seen a marked improvement in behaviour - we went TV free for six weeks, and it was remarkable to see the difference - so I can empathise with teachers who have to spend most of the day with groups of children. It must be a very hard job dealing with inappropriate behaviour caused by inappropriate influences. 

At the same time the thought of yet another government mandated intervention in the lives of otherwise normal families doesn't particularly sit well either. There's enough pressure on most parents just to keep a roof over our heads at the moment, without being policed inside our walls too.

Is playing these games a sign of a problem at home? Are they causing a problem in society? Do you let your child play games that are age restricted? And if so, can they watch movies that are age restricted too?

Join the conversation on our Facebook page- we'd love to  hear what you think.
