Car Transporter Toy £3.50 Was £7 @ John Lewis

Got a little car mad person in your house? Well then check out this fab car transporter toy at John Lewis - it's reduced from £7 to just £3.50 right now.

Y'know, this is the type of toy that's worth buying now while it's a bargain and squirrelling away for a rainy day or even until the next lot of school holidays. It never ceases to amaze me how getting a 'new toy' - no matter how cheap and cheerful - can enthral and entertain my lads. I don't generally buy them toys besides for on their birthdays or at Christmas but this summer I really learned that a few quid on some little trinket is money well spent if you're looking for a little bit of down time while they get distracted by the novelty of something new!

This transporter seems great value since it comes with three cars, but do note that it is not suitable for children under the age of three.

Standard UK delivery within 3 days is £3.00, or you can use their free click and collect service to pick yours up in store.

Disney Frozen Anna Sparkle Doll £15 @ Amazon

The Disney Frozen Anna Sparkle doll is £15 at Amazon right now. That's with free delivery, too!

I am pretty sure I don't need to tell you anything about this. It's Anna from Frozen in a doll, with a sparkly dress. What's not to completely love?!

She's wearing a multi-coloured bodice decorated with swirls, sparkles and flowers, teamed with a bright blue skirt. And - get this - the skirt is removable. I used to have an Abba doll whose skirt did something similar and I ADORED it.

Anyway, Anna also comes with a pink cape with high black collar and a golden clasp, and her hair is styled in two classic plaits and topped with a sparkling pink tiara, just like in the movie!

You know these dolls fly off the shelves quicker than a really extremely very quick thing - so don't dilly dally if you've been hunting for one of these dolls. You've been warned. Go!

10 Reasons Why Mums Are Great

by Lucy Sweet in Features on 31 August, 2014 at 7:50 pm

10 Reasons Why Mums Are GreatI’m always moaning like a cranky old lady about how I have to get up off my chair and look after my child, but really, being a mother is the business. Out of all the jobs I’ve had – cashier at Gateway supermarket earning £1.33 an hour, washerer upper at a local pub, record shop delinquent, grimacing barista, freelance word wrangler – being a mother is the most rewarding.

Well, OK, most of the jobs I’ve had were quite rubbish, but it’s true. And I’m not even drunk! (Well, only a little bit.) Here’s why mothers rule, and why we should give ourselves a massive pat on the back…

1. You are officially hard as nails

Remember when you used to be squeamish at the sight of blood? Remember when you couldn’t imagine being responsible for someone else? Now you’ve squeezed the equivalent of a medium-sized speedboat out of your chuff, nothing will ever phase you again. You stride like a colossus through the supermarket, with a kid on your hip, taking care of business. You can mop up any disgusting liquids and smegma that comes your way, deal with your child’s fears and tantrums, and still whip up something edible for dinner. You are a BOSS.

2. You have massive boobs

Oh yeah. Were talkin’ MEGA NORKS. Well, until you stop breastfeeding and they turn into two deflated whoopie cushions.

3. Somebody love you

Maybe you have terrible shortcomings, a nose like a mottled carrot and a criminal record, but it doesn’t matter - your kid loves you. Really loves you. That kid looks at you with the clear, innocent, loving eyes of a cherub, and accepts you without judgment or conditions. (Well, until they learn to talk). Best feeling in the world. *blub*

4. You're resourceful

Before children, I wouldn’t have known what to do in a crisis. But now, I can figure out a way round most things. If you don’t have any tissues, use your sleeve. If your kid is bored, make a hat out of a leaflet (or rustle up an origami donkey, or put it over your face and pretend to be asleep). If there’s no food in the house, I don’t whine and go to a restaurant. Instead I do some quick calculations and rustle up a nutritious plate of toast crumbs with freezer ice. As a mother, you work with what you’ve got, and you usually end up impressing yourself with your Girl Guide-style resourcefulness.

5. You embrace adventure

Before children, you might have skydived out of a plane or backpacked through the Andes. But NONE of that is as courageous as going on a train or plane journey with a 2 year old. Talk about a white knuckle ride.

6. You're great at your job

Motherhood focuses the mind and helps you figure out what’s important, which is great skill to have in the workplace. You also don’t take no crap from nobody, which is good because people will be too scared to tell you that you’ve got a huge stain on your left boob. So whether you’re dealing with Maureen in accounts and her bunions, or working with an important client, you’re more likely to get stuff done. Also, going to work is a lovely rest from the insanity at home.

7. You have civic pride

Before children, you might have tutted at street crime, littering or dog poo, but you probably didn’t feel compelled to do anything about it. Now it makes you INCANDESCENT WITH RAGE. When you have kids, you start looking outwards and thinking about what you can do to improve your community. That’s because it’s your job to teach them to be good people and it’s hard when the world is full of so many absolute knob-ends dropping Subway wrappers into the flower beds. So you get angry, and you petition, and you have the balls to tell people off for being rude, because you are hard as nails (see number 1).

8. You're more organised

If you have to get sprogs up and dressed for nursery in the morning, you need military precision. You have to remember to make sure pants are clean, lunches are packed, shoes are on, teeth are brushed and that you arrive in one piece at 9am sharp. Oh yes, and on top of that you have to go to work and operate as a fully functioning human being for 8 hours before it starts all over again. Never in the field of human conflict has so much been done by one Mum.

9. You're a social whirlwind

All those mother and baby groups, awkward encounters during story time in the library, and accumulated hours at the school gates have left you able to make small talk with anyone. Now you’re a mum, you meet and greet more people in a day than The Queen after 40 cups of Typhoo.

10. You're still you

You might spend all your time wiping up after little critters and being used as their personal sounding board/punchbag/bouncy castle, but you’re still a complex, clever, funny individual with experience, opinions and ideas. HURRAY FOR YOU. Now have a glass of wine and let someone else do the tidying up for a change…

Fisher Price Infant Carrier £19.99 Was £39.99 @ Argos

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 31 August, 2014 at 5:47 pm

Fisher Price Infant Carrier £19.99 Was £39.99 @ Argos

This Fisher Price infant carrier has been reduced at Argos. Normally £39.99, it's now just £19.99. However, it's only available for home delivery so you can't use the Argos click and collect service - BUT delivery is totally free!

This infant carrier is for use with three point seat belts, and is a rear facing group 0+ car seat suitable for use from birth until your infant weighs 13kg.

It offers side impact protection and body support cushions for newborns, plus harness sleeves for a comfy ride, and a quick release buckle.

All in all this looks like a decent deal if you're in the market for a new infant car seat. This is an online exclusive deal, so you're unlikely to better it even by shopping in-store. There are currently good levels of stock but I don't think these will stick around for long at this price, so I wouldn't dither if you're planning to pick one up at this price.

Children’s Winter Coats From £8 @ Argos

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 31 August, 2014 at 10:23 am

Children’s Winter Coats From £8 @ Argos

Head over to Argos right now folks as they have some great prices on kid's winter coats and jackets starting at just £8 with the Trespass Pink Sooki for girls* and the Black Mooki for boys.*  With character names like Peppa Pig* at £9, it’s the same price for the Trespass Boys’ Black Puffa* and the Minnie Mouse Puffa* is £9.59.

These are all included in the back to school range and not only are they reduced, you can also take another 20% off using the code SCHOOL20.

You will see the reduced price on Argos but to get the prices I’m quoting you have to use the code SCHOOL20 for a further 20% off. You use it in the promo box at checkout if ordering online for home delivery or quote it at the till when you’re collecting your reserved items in store.

I really like the Trespass Girls’ Navy Tiffy Puffa Jacket* This one is down to £11.24, quote SCHOOL20 in store and it’s £9! Bargain! If you're looking for the Angry Birds Puffa, that's here*.

Go quickly on this this, there’s a lot of availability at the minute but it’s not going to stay that way for long! Make sure you see what's still available in your area from our school uniform blog yesterday too, prices from just £1.28*. 

It's worth noting that if you're reserving online to collect and pay in store, you can't use the quick pay to receive your items, you have to go to a manned till point and quote the code to receive the extra 20% discount. This code is valid until September 9th.

The Crayola Pencil Design and Colour Set* is £14.99 but if you buy selected back to school items you can add that to your order and get 50% off, making it £7.49 too.

Collection from Argos is free and home delivery will add £3.95 to your total.

Back To School Boys' Rucksacks From £5 @ M&S

by Nada in Deals on 31 August, 2014 at 9:50 am

Back To School Boys' Rucksacks From £5 @ M&S

M&S have reduced the price of a selected range of rucksacks that are ideal for those going back to school. They start from only £5 now, which is reasonable since these are bigger boys school bags rather than the tiny backpacks that seem to be in abundance on the High Street.

M&S wouldn't be my first place to look when on the hunt for school bags. That will teach me. Not only are they stylish but they aren't babyish in the slightest. Not to mention very nicely priced. There's four styles included and they are lovely.

The Batman one is was originally £14 but has £9 off, and is now only £5. It's really nice for a DC Comics fan that is say over seven. You see plenty for really young kids but never for older ones.

There's a nice blue monster rucksack that's only £5 that was £14. This is a bigger style backpack too, that will fit in those school essentials. For those die hard English footy fans, there's a Three Lions design one. This too was £14 and has been slashed down to £5.

I LOVE the Animal Print one, I never thought I'd see the day where it could look masculine. It has a sharks mouth motif on it and is really smart. This had been selling for £18 and is now only£7. No way would I have paid the full price but it's certain ly worth the £7.

All four rucksacks can be collected for free from your local M&S or delivered at a cost of £3.50. Why not have a look, you may just be surprised, I know I was.

Lego Time Teacher Girls' Watch & Clock Set £11 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 31 August, 2014 at 9:10 am

Lego Time Teacher Girls' Watch & Clock Set £11 Delivered @ Amazon

 

Is your daughter learning how to tell the time? Look at this gorgeous Lego Time Teacher girls' watch & clock set from Amazon. Not only is it functional but it is MEGA cute. Amazon are selling it for only £11 delivered. This sold out very quickly from John Lewis at this price and sells for £20+ in other retailers. It's £25, for example, at Debenhams.

This is exactly what you need if you are teaching your little one how to tell the time. Kids get an introduction to this in their first year of school but explore it much more around the age of six, and this is the age this set is suitable from. It comes with a constructable clock that is an aid for their learning. As well as the clock, there are illustrated cards to further assist.

The watch strap is made of a very pink plastic with a cute Lego minifigure feature attached. Lego fans would absolutely love this. Another great thing is that the strap can be easily adjusted for small wrists. The watch itself is water resistant up to 50 metres.

You will find the Lego Time Teachers girls' watch & clock set by clicking the link above and looking to your right hand side, where you will find it sold by Amazon at this low price, with FREE delivery.

Brother Max Sketch 2-In-1 Wooden Highchair £39.99 Delivered @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 31 August, 2014 at 8:43 am

Brother Max Sketch 2-In-1 Wooden Highchair £39.99 Delivered @ Argos

If you are on the lookout for a highchair, that will last your little one until the are big enough to sit properly at the table, then this is the deal for you. Argos are selling the Brother Max Sketch 2-in-1 wooden highchair for only £39.99. Sounds good, these retail for around the £70 mark elsewhere and was originally £85.99 at Argos. That's a HUGE saving.

The Brother Max Sketch highchair is a very clever piece of kit indeed. You might be forgiven for thinking it looks like something our favourite Swedish furniture store would sell. It is made of wood and would blend into a modern or traditionally decorated home. All the wood is smooth and child friendly.

You may be wondering what the 2-in-1 means. Well, quite simply this Brother Max highchair can be morphed into a booster seat once your child is no longer requiring it as a highchair. That is handy, and saves you having to buy a dining table booster. It can also turn into a low chair too. Fab!

There's an easy clean tray attached, that is removable and wipe clean. Like I said, as well as the booster, it can be a high or low chair also. There's a five point harness to ensure your little darling stays put whilst you are trying to feed them.

This Brother Max Sketch 2-in-1 highchair is an online exclusive and cannot be collected from your local Argos, but the good news is it has FREE delivery.

Disney Princess Tattoos 42p Delivered @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 30 August, 2014 at 10:20 pm

Disney Princess Tattoos 42p Delivered @ AmazonWe've seen the Fairy and Pirate tattoos from Amazon before, but everything in my world is Disney Princesses right now (oh if my 19 year old Emo/Goth self could see me now!) and tonight I discovered and bought these 'Snow White' Tattoos for my daughter's 5th birthday. They are called Snow White, but they do also feature Jasmin, I suppose for those who don't like the animal-charming princess. Either way, at 42p delivered you can't argue too hard.

You get a sheet with 9 characters and two flowers on it, and since it lists card size as 5cm x 4cm, I'm under the impression that these are individually wrapped and 'various designs supplied' suggests its a bit hit and miss as to knowing what you'll get.

To use it you remove rhe clear sheet, and place the tattoo face down on skin, then wet the tattoo thoroughly with a sponge. After 20-30 seconds, gently remove the backing paper and allow the tattoo to dry.  To remove them you dab the tattoo with baby oil, then rub gently and repeatedly until removed.

The Nut Job & Barbie And The Secret Door From £1

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 30 August, 2014 at 8:53 pm

The Nut Job & Barbie And The Secret Door From £1 The squirrels are getting ready for the winter in 'The Nut Job' as Surly and his fellow park pals they struggle to gather enough nuts for winter. Surly finds a storeroom full to the brim with nuts, and starts planning a nut store  heist... as you do.

Barbie and the Secret Door might be more your thing, especially as she joins a fairy and a mermaid to save the kingdom - that was released yesterday, and might be showing in a cinema near you now.

At the Odeon prices start from just £1 at selected cinemas but £2.50 seems to be the average.

Over at Cineworld prices start at £1.35 if you book online and you also may be eligible for that free Cravendale pack. This includes instructions on how to make your own Barry the Biscuit at home, a chance to win a milk shake making pack by uploading pictures of Barry the Biscuit and kid’s activities including spot the difference, stickers and crosswords. Not something you’d buy obviously but for free - well the kids will like it.

While at Vue Cinemas a ticket will cost you from £1.75.

Maleficent is rated as a PG, it is rather a dark movie though so may not be suitable for very young children. It’s obviously up to you, you know your own child best after all but I'm not sure it's for timid kids. I guess that’s the beauty of these films in general though, if you’ve paid less than £2 per head, you don’t mind as much if you have to leave early for whatever reason.

Postnatal Exercise Shorts £5 Was £22 @ JoJo Maman Bebe

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 30 August, 2014 at 5:15 pm

Postnatal Exercise Shorts £5 Was £22 @ JoJo Maman Bebe

Now don't get me wrong here - I am not suggesting, with this post, that postnatal exercise should be uppermost in your minds if you've recently had a baby or indeed are expecting one any time soon, but at £5 (reduced from £22) for these black postnatal exercise shorts, I'd be snapping up a pair pretty sharp-ish regardless of whether you're in a hurry to get back to exercise or not.

I was back to exercising fairly soon after my third baby was born - I don't remember doing any exercise after the other two though, mind - and I really struggled to figure out what on earth to wear. Obviously my 'normal' workout gear just didn't fit over my postnatal lumps and bumps for a good few months after I gave birth, and yet buying new exercise clothes just for that postnatal period wasn't appealing or affordable. So I really wish I'd know about these!

According to the product description, neoprene shorts can help retain body heat, and improve blood circulation and water loss during and after exercise - maximising the effort put in. They have a low under tummy seam and a high waist to help support your post-baby body all the way up to the rib cage.

Heck - I'm tempted to buy a pair of these anyway, and it's almost a year since my little one was born!

Free standard delivery is available to all UK addresses, too!

Celebaby: Jennifer Aniston On The Pressure To Have A Baby

Celebaby: Jennifer Aniston On The Pressure To Have A Baby

It's one thing to be a celebrity mum. faced with the prospect of bringing up your children under the glare of the world's media. But what happens when you're a celebrity of a certain age who doesn't have children? According to Jennier Aniston, that's not a fun part to play.

In a recent interview with Carson Daly for the Today Show in the US, Jennifer lifted the lid on what it's like to live with pressure to procreate.

Today.com reports:

"It's always such an issue of, 'Are you married yet? Do you have your babies yet?' It's constant," she told the show.

"I don't have this checklist of things that have to be done and if they're not checked I've failed some part of my feminism or being a woman or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child."

"I've birthed a lot of things and I feel I've mothered many things. I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people."

How about you? Did you feel a lot of pressure from friends or family to get busy having babies?

School Drawing Sets £9.95 @ Dotcomgiftshop (£12.90 Delivered)

School Drawing Sets £9.95 @ Dotcomgiftshop (£12.90 Delivered)

If you've yet to complete your Back To School shopping, it might be worth checking out the school drawing sets (otherwise known as filled pencil cases) at Dotcomgiftshop. They're £9.95 and there are four different designs available.

You can probably find filled pencil cases elsewhere online for less money but I've always been impressed by the quality of items I've bought in the past from Dotcomgiftshop.

Included in these sets are 12 coloured drawing pencils, one wooden pencil sharpener, one wooden ruler measuring in cm/inches, metal paper scissors and an eraser, a 60 page artists' pad, HB, 2B and 4B artists' pencils with erasers and a handy letter and number stencil. 

What I really like about these sets is that they're a bit different from the filled pencil cases you find in other shops - which should hopefully mean that the contents won't end up accidentally going home in someone else's school bag quite so quickly!

Delivery is £2.95 from Dotcomgiftshop, or free if you spend £50 or more.

Thomas & Friends/Peppa Pig Umbrella £3/£4.50 @ M&S

by Nada in Deals on 30 August, 2014 at 11:05 am

Thomas & Friends/Peppa Pig Umbrella £3/£4.50 @ M&S

The weather has changed dramatically in the last couple of weeks. I am sad to say, if you haven't already noticed, summer is on her way out. What's good about winter? Well lots of things, cosy woollen jumpers, waterproof wellies and uber-cool umbrellas. M&S has slashed the price on two styles of umbrella. Thomas & Friends, was £9 and now only £3. The Peppa Pig one was also £9 but is slightly dearer at £4.50.

Now, before you get too excited, let me break you the bad news, these are for children. They get all the cool stuff, huh? Both umbrellas come with plastic protectors on the end of each spoke to prevent any loss of eyes. The crook shaped handle is also plastic and is chunky in design to make it comfortable for little hands to hold.

I always think children's umbrellas are better made than adults ones, they NEVER blow inside out. I have had cheap ones, to Radley, even a Lulu Guinness one and they all broke from blowing inside out. Anyway, let's forget about my umbrella woes, these kiddies ones from M&S are so cute. The Thomas one is red and blue in colour with Thomas the Tank all over it. The Peppa Pig one not only features our favourite little oinker, but says "I Love Peppa" all over it.

M&S offer a free collection service from any of their stores, including Simply Food ones. If you'd prefer to have it delivered then it costs £3.50.

It did the job, but boy did he have a meltdown. Save yourself the same grief and just buy some.

For 99p, you can bag yourself some One Direction goodies, like the pink 1D drinks bottle. Kids always need one of these at school, for after gym or even in their packed lunch. There's also some colour themed filled pencil cases, here* and loads more for under a pound.

Girls' & Boys' White 2 Pack School Polo Shirts £1.59 (Possible £1.28 With Code) @ Argos

My kids go back to school this week, so my friends and I are all in a frenzy of trying to get everything sorted so that the dreaded first school run will go smoothly. But if, like lots of us, it turns out that you're not quite as prepared as you thought you were, then check out this two-pack of girls' school polo shirts for just £1.59 at Argos! Plus if you quote code SCHOOL20 when collecting in store or ordering for home delivery, you could get these for as low as £1.28!

These polo shirts have a pretty 'scallop edge' knitted collar, short sleeves and a front placket opening.

They have stock left in various sizes from 3-4 years to 9-10 years but I'd buy them now if you need these, as they're bound to be out of stock pretty sharpish.

Delivery from Argos is £3.95 or if you can get to a local branch of Argos to pick yours up in person, you can use their free click and collect service and save yourself the delivery fee.
