Motorola MBP27T Digital Video Baby Monitor with No-Touch IR Sensor £64.99 TODAY ONLY @ Amazon

If you have been looking for a baby monitor then this is a great deal from Amazon, as their Deal Of The Day. The Motorola MBP27T Digital Video Baby Monitor with No-Touch IR Sensor has an RRP of £129.99, and it is selling for £100 everywhere...except at Amazon where it is £64.99 for today only!

This video monitor does so many things it's amazing for the money, because as well as being able to use it for keeping an eye and ear on your baby this one has an extra special feature. That "No-Touch IR Sensor" meant nothing to me at first, but it's an infra-red temperature sensor so that you can test the temperature of your baby, the bath water, the baby food and more!

This is what you can expect from your all-singing all-dancing baby monitor:

  • 2.4-inch TFT LCD colour screen providing a live view of your baby
  • No-touch temperature sensor for checking fevers, food, and bath water
  • Camera offers digital pan and tilt features, with infrared night vision
  • Data encryption for security and 2.4 GHz wireless technology
  • Offers a long range of up to 300 metres with out-of-range indicator

If it they could get it to change a nappy I think it would be just about perfect.

This Motorola MBP27T Digital Video Baby Monitor is on offer at this price for today only, so after midnight the price will go back up again. You also get free super saver delivery, or free one-day delivery if you have Amazon Prime.

Want Quick, Painless Childbirth? Stop Overthinking It, Says Expert

We were talking childbirth in the Playpennies office today, as we so often do - best you don't ask - when up cropped the subject of Dr. Michael Odent's controversial comments on the topic.

Somehow I managed to miss them when they first hit the headlines a few weeks ago, but here's how the Daily Mail covered what he had to say:

If you have a little one who is in that 'looking after baby' doll role play stage then these Disney Princess My First Baby Dolls are great toys and a super cheap price at Amazon right now. They have an RRP of £14.99 or £19.99, but they now start at just £6.66.

The My First Baby Doll Merida is £6.66, Aurora is £6.92 and Belle is a little more at £7.86. If you want Cinderella then she is £8.33, but she's still a good bargain. Merida is the best buy as she is one of the Deluxe dolls that normally sell for £19.99!

These dolls are suitable from age 2, and come in a baby outfit in their own signature colours. They even have their own tiaras as well, and they can suck their thumbs!

Some of the other Deluxe versions of these dolls are also on offer at around half price, with Ariel* and Aurora* both being just over £9 each and others just over £10 as well.

If you have Prime then these Disney Princess Baby Dolls will be delivered free, otherwise you get free delivery when you spend £20 and charges will apply if you spend less.

(EXPIRED) FREE Chanel Mascara Sample @ Boots

This is a super freebie, as Chanel Make-Up is very expensive. Boots have 22,000 sample sizes of the new Le Volume Ultra-Noir De Chanel Mascara to give away for free!

All you have you do is fill in a simple online form with your personal details and they send you your sample! There's a box to fill in your advantage card number, but it's not mandatory so you don't have to be a member for the freebie.

This is a sample size, not full size, but that's perfect for trying this as you can't try mascara testers in the shops for hygiene reasons. It's also a good option for occasional make-up users, holidays or popping in your handbag for make-up touch ups on those big nights out.

Although numbers are limited there are still stocks at the time of writing, though with a big name like Chanel these are going to fly out! Good luck.

Star Wars Boys' Novelty Top & Cape £3.99 @ Argos

My boys will literally wear anything if it has a cape on it. This Star Wars Boy's Novelty Top has a cape attached and I just know it would go down a storm with them. Argos have reduced it from £5.99, which was reasonable to the bargain price of £3.99. This isn't a fancy dress costume but an actual item of clothing, however, it can be used to dress up in for the likes of Halloween.

The Star Wars Boys' Novelty Top and Cape consists of a Star Wars designed T-Shirt and a cape. The T-Shirt is made from 100% cotton which means it shouldn't irritate even the most delicate of skins. The cape is 100% polyester. It's all machine washable at forty degrees.

This cool top is available in sizes to cater for children aged three through to ten years old. Each size is in stock as I type this, so you stand a good change of snapping on up at your local Argos.

 Playmobil Christmas Advent Calendar: Dragons Treasure Battle/Police £9.96 @ Amazon/Toys R Us

Advent Calendars are getting fancier every year, but also more expensive. Who can afford to pay £20+ when you have more than one child?

You may think we are jumping the gun a bit with all this talk of Advent Calendars, but wait until you see this offer. Amazon and Toys R Us have the Playmobil Christmas Advent Calendar in Dragons Treasure Battle for just £9.96. The Police one is £9.96 at Toys R Us only. This is a great price! These are super popular and are currently priced at £20 from Tesco Direct, House of Fraser and The Entertainer. Be quick, we can't see these lasting at this price.

Sure, when we were little Advent Calendars were all about the chocolate, but just like anything else, they are evolving. In my mum's day all she got in her's was pretty pictures to look at.

These Playmobil Advent Calendars contain 24 surprise toy items and those vary from Policemen to Dragons, depending on which one you have gone for.

Delivery is FREE from Amazon if you have Amazon Prime or spend £20 plus, otherwise it'll cost you £3.30. With Toys R Us, you can Click and Collect for FREE.

Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender 0.6L 300W £18.99 @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 2 September, 2015 at 9:18 am

Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender 0.6L 300W £18.99 @ Amazon

These cool little blenders from Breville can be found in many kitchens up and down the country. Why are they so popular? Ever thought of making a smoothie and had the problem of making way too much and it going to waste? Conventional blenders are much bigger and lack the convenience of the Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender. It's at the best price we have seen it for at Amazon, £18.99.

The Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender is handy if you are on diet shake programmes like Juice Plus, drink post-workout shakes, or like to get your five-a-day from a smoothie. You don't have to haul out the big smoothie maker to do the job... who wants to go to the hassle of cleaning that several times a day.

Another popular feature of this personal blender is that your blended drink doesn't need to then be decanted into a bottle as it is blitzed in a portable bottle. That's right, a 600ml BPA-free eastman tritan copolyester blender bottle that you will drink out of and rinse, ready for your next drink.

You can have the Breville Blend-Active Personal Blender delivered for FREE if you have Amazon Prime or if you top your order up to £20. Check out the Add-on items here.

FREE Little Seedlings Club Events For September & October @ Dobbies

Looking for the kids to do this weekend? Why not check out what's on down at your local Dobbies? On the first Sunday on the month, they run workshops for their own junior customers called Little Seedlings. They are gardening related and won't cost you a penny. The workshops vary in theme each month and children get to be hands on with plants, flowers as well as other gardening delights.

This month's event is called Blimey! Bulbs are Brilliant and will be held on Sunday 6th September. Just as the name suggests, this will focus on bulbs and the flowers that grow from them.

Next month's workshop is called The Wonders of Water, held on Sunday, 4th October. This will teach your children about where water comes from and where it goes? Plus about how plants drink water and how it travels up the plant from the roots all the way to the ends of the flower petals.

Find out more about this month's and next month's Little Seedling Events here and here.

Dobbies highly recommend that you book a place on the Little Seedlings events in advance, so find your local store here and give them a call.

2015 LEGO Advent Calendars Available NOW @ Lego Shop

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 1 September, 2015 at 10:08 pm

2015 LEGO Advent Calendars Available NOW @ Lego Shop

We have been discussing the festive season a lot here at PlayPennies, and the release of the new 2015 Lego Advent Calendars has caused a little flutter of excitement. The Lego Shop online has two versions available so far - Lego City and Lego Friends, and both are selling for £19.99.

Last year there were many people watching carefully to see when the prices would drop for these highly sought after calendars... and they just sold out instead! The cheapest they got was £15 or so last September time, and they sold out in minutes!

I could only get the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar last year, and getting lots of teeny space ships is nowhere near as festive as a Father Christmas minifigure, Christmas trees and pressies. I'll be buying early this year instead. It's a gamble as the prices may drop, but we will definitely be watching for any offers and will keep you all up to date.

Even at full price £19.99 for 24 little Lego gifts is a bargain price. The Lego Shop has a limit of 5 per customer as they are targets for those eBay resellers!

You can buy these Lego Advent Calendars in Lego Stores and online, and home delivery is free over £50 or £3.95 when you spend less.

Disney Cars Reading Time Sling Bookcase £26 @ Tesco

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 1 September, 2015 at 9:16 pm

Disney Cars Reading Time Sling Bookcase £26 @ Tesco

This Disney Cars Reading Time Bookcase has been reduced at Tesco down from £34 to just £26, and it's even included in the Clubcard Boost as well. Most other stores are still charging the full price for this, with Toys R Us even charging just short of £40!

This is a sling type bookcase, so is ideal for younger children. They will find it easier to find the books they want, and also easier to tidy away after themselves. The slings are tough polyester in a bright red colour, and the sides of the shelf are decorated with images from Disney Cars.

This Sling Bookcase is cheaper than any unbranded ones I can see about at the moment, so even if your youngster isn't a big fan of Cars it's not a big job to cover over those pictures on the side and replace them with something they prefer. I am thinking of getting one and putting dinosaur pictures on it instead, as that seems to be a thing for my youngest at the moment.

I'm regretting using up the last of my Tesco Clubcard Vouchers earlier today on some bedding we needed, as I could have used the Clubcard Boost on this instead, as it would only have used up £13 worth of my vouchers! Never mind.

You can use the free click and collect service from any Tesco store, or home delivery adds an extra £3. If you can't collect then I would add something for £3.99 or more from the baby and toddler section to your order, and then you qualify for free delivery anyway - better to get something else for your money than it go on the delivery charge!

It is worth stocking up in the sales for party decorations and accessories. At Party Pieces they currently have a Summer Sale on with up to 85% off. They seem to have quite a lot of stock to choose from including fancy dress, Halloween items and Christmas items.

Apply For FREE Audience Tickets For Strictly Come Dancing @ BBC

Apply For FREE Audience Tickets For Strictly Come Dancing @ BBC

Got plans for Saturday? Well of course you are staying in - it's the Strictly Come Dancing Launch Show! BBC 1 7.15pm by the way. If you are a fan of the sequins, sparkle and excitement then how would you like a chance to be in the audience, getting a close up look at all those celebs strutting their stuff? The BBC have just opened the registration for the draw for free tickets, so you can apply now!

How the process works is fairly simple - you have a list of dates to choose from, and you can select as many as you wish. Applications are accepted up to 4pm on Thursday 10th September, and after that there will be a random draw to allocate tickets. Demand is huge and you can only get a maximum of one pair of tickets per household.

Apart from the Blackpool Tower Ballroom Special all the shows are in Elstree Studios, and the show dates are not transferable so make sure you can attend before putting your name n the list.

There's lots more information on the link above, so have a quick read before you apply.

From what others have said about BBC ticket shows, and from my hubby's experience, these tickets do not guarantee entry as they issue more tickets than seats - they can't have empty ones when the cameras start rolling! If you get tickets make sure you still get there early!

Who do you fancy for the winner this year? Peter Andre? Jay from The Wanted? Jamelia? Ainsley Harriot? Keeeeeeep dancing! :)

Superman Kids Fancy Dress Outfit £6 @ Asda George

This super cool Superman Fancy Dress outfit keeps on coming back in and out of stock at Asda George online, and it's back again and at just £6! The stock sells out almost as fast as we can write about it so be super quick!

There are just 3 sizes in stock but as these are normally £12 or more this is such a good buy I still had to tell you. Right now they have sizes 3 - 4 years, 5 - 6 years and 9 - 10 years in stock.

My son has this outfit and it's great. There's a big padded chest and arms so that he makes everyone feel his 'muscles' when he's dressed up as Supes! The cloak is removable, which is ideal for bouncy castles or running after bad guys, and the belt is detachable as well.

You can use the free click and collect from Asda stores, or home delivery add a further £2.95 to your order.

Extra 25% Off ALL Adidas Originals TODAY ONLY @ Adidas Outlet

The Adidas Outlet sells off items at big discounts of up to 50% off their original prices, and for today only there is an extra 25% off ALL Adidas Originals on top of that!

There are some great bargains to be had, with around 100 kids styles, and hundreds of adult items of footwear, clothing and accessories included.  There's no discount code to enter, the extra 25% off is automatically applied at the checkout to all qualifying items.

I love the kids and infant Star Wars range, and there are trainers, tracksuits and t-shirts all in this offer. Sizes are very hit and miss for some of the styles as this is the outlet section, but it's still worth a look at these prices. I'm considering the Star Wars trainers for my toddler for nursery, as they work out at £36 delivered for two pairs and that's half the price of Clarks!

Just make sure that it is the Originals outlet items on the link above that you are looking at, as the rest of the outlet does not have the same offer. You can use the click and collect from stores for free, home delivery is free over £30 otherwise charges are from £3.95.
