Easter Bakes: Bunny Cream Puffs

How completely adorable are these Bunny Cream Puffs?

I saw them on Pinterest this morning and my heart leapt for joy because I usually feel woefully inadequate when I see stuff like this. Let's just say you're more likely to find me sharing pics of my epic cake fails than crowing about my culinary skills. But these seem EASY!

SoulCal Snug Crib Shoes £8.00 Was £19.99 @ Sports Direct

SoulCal Snug Crib Shoes £8.00 Was £19.99 @ Sports Direct

It's snowing as I type this, so I am laughing my head off at the notion of it being Spring. If it's the same where you are, you might want to snap up these cute SoulCal Snug Crib Shoes - they're just £8.00 at Sports Direct right now, down from £19.99, saving you £11.99.

There are several sizes still available, and these have a handy slip-on design with touch and close fastenings at the side - so hopefully they'll stay put and help keep little toes cosy!

They seem to be fleece-lined with a luxurious faux fur trim at to the top of the boot, and a soft sole to help keep developing feet comfy.

My daughter had a pair of these when she was tiny and I was impressed by how well they stayed on - she seemed to wriggle out of virtually every other crib shoe I tried.

At this price, they might also make a cute pressie for someone who is expecting a baby in the Autumn or Winter.

Standard UK delivery is £3.99 and will take between three and five days.

Garage Play Set With Three Cars £4.97 Was £11.00 @ Asda Direct

This cute garage play set is a fabulous price at Asda Direct right now, down from £11.00 to just £4.97. And it comes with three cars, too!

It's apparently suitable for children aged 18 months and older, and the cars look like the perfect size for dinky little toddler hands. (Don't you just love those pudgy fingers and dimpled knuckles?!)

It even comes with stickers so that little ones can customise this themselves - I know my littlest would adore that part. Although I'm not sure that many stickers would actually end up on the garage.

Nice deal if you're looking for a little Easter gift that isn't a chocolate egg?

Standard UK delivery takes 3-5 days and costs £3.95 from Asda Direct. You can also use their free Click and Collect service to reserve one online using the link above, and then pop to your nearest branch of Asda to pick it up. Easy!

Disney Cars Go Glow Clock Bedtime Trainer £5.89 (Was £19.99) @ Amazon

Disney Cars Go Glow Clock Bedtime Trainer £5.89 (Was £19.99) @ Amazon

Happy news for those of you who are struggling with the change in routine that comes from the clocks going forward. This Disney Cars Go Glow Clock Bedtime Trainer is on special offer at Amazon right now, down in price to just £5.89 from £19.99.

I've never tried one of these sleep trainer clocks but I've thought about it several times, and have heard really good things about them from friends. It strikes me as a clever move to add a Disney theme to the basic idea of a sleep trainer clock - I know when my kids were littler they would have been thrilled with any sort of accessory relating to Lightning McQueen.

Now, the reviews are a wee bit mixed on this so it's worth having a careful read of them to see if you think it'll meet your needs. I'm inclined to think it's worth a try at this price, despite the mixed bag when it comes to customer comments. Anything for a few more minutes of shut-eye in the mornings, right?

Delivery will be free if you're an Amazon Prime customer, otherwise you might want to add some bits to your basket to bring the total spend up to £10 to get free delivery.

If you get one of these or indeed already have one, we'd love to hear what you think of it. Share in the comments below this post, or pop a comment over on our Facebook page!

LEGO The Hobbit 3DS - £7.95 with Free Delivery @ The Game Collection

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 31 March, 2015 at 8:25 am

LEGO The Hobbit 3DS - £7.95 with Free Delivery @ The Game Collection

If you're looking for cheap games for your kid's 3DS collection, then this one is a great price. LEGO: The Hobbit for the 3DS is reduced from £13.95 to only £7.95 at The Game Collection, and to make it even better free delivery is included!

The game is based on the first two Hobbit movies, but it's not going to be as scary for kids - nothing is as scary when it's done in Lego bricks! It's suitable for ages 7 and over. Here's what you can expect:

The interactive game of LEGO The Hobbit allows gamers to play along their favourite scenes from the films and follows the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins as he is recruited by the Wizard Gandalf to aid Thorin Oakenshield and his Company of Dwarves. Bilbo leaves the comforts of the Shire on a journey through Middle-earth to help the Dwarves reclaim their lost Kingdom of Erebor within the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he is introduced to ravenous Trolls, dangerous Orcs and, of course, Gollum and his precious Ring. Players will utilise and combine the Dwarves’ unique abilities – often with hilarious results – to solve the most diverse Quests of any LEGO videogame to date.

Lego games are loved by both kids and adults, and if you get this while it's on offer it might see you through until the new Lego Jurassic World game gets released in June!

Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit £7.46 @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 30 March, 2015 at 9:50 pm

Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit £7.46 @ Amazon

The Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit normally sells for around the £14.99 mark. That massive online retailer Amazon have slashed the price of this baby set to just £7.46. With weaning, little sets like this are handy. I always went down the plastic bowls and spoons route because you can bet your bottom dollar that baby will throw everything on the floor. It's bad enough cleaning your kitchen floor three times a day, having to replace all your crockery would be too much.

What's in the Tommee Tippee Explora Weaning Kit? A First Sips Cup, two First Weaning Spoons, a Cool and Mash Bowl with Lid and Spoon and two Pop-up Weaning Pots. Basically everything you need to start off your weaning journey.

Each piece of equipment are dishwasher, microwave and steriliser safe which is a Godsend for time saving and hygiene. The Cup is non spill and has a soft spout for those little mouths with their soft gums.

To get FREE delivery from Amazon you must spend £10 or more. That means that you need to spend another £2.54 on something like these Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers*.

Children's Character Clothing From £1.95 @ LamaLoLi

Children's Character Clothing From £1.95 @ LamaLoLi

Never heard of LamaLoli? Neither had I until the start of the year, but I am glad as I would have been skint a long time ago. What do they sell? Adult and children's clothing, mostly character themed items, at teeny tiny prices. Seriously, get all the Minnie and Mickey, Skylanders etc for Sports Direct prices. This site is exactly what all us money-conscious parents have been waiting for.

With clothing starting from just £1.95, you just gotta have look. If like me you have more kids than sense then you will enjoy the fact that you can clothe them for very little in the way of money.  Let's face it they grow out of them so quickly so why not grab the cheap stuff?

Like those Disney Mouses? Check out this Minnie Mouse Nightdress* for just £4.95 or this Mickey Mouse Hoody* for £8.95. Shortie Pyjamas are great for those warm, balmy nights in the Summer, here's some in Spider-Man* for £5.95 or Minnie Mouse* for £4.95.

Spend over £20 and get FREE delivery or if you aren't planning on forking out that much (with I highly doubt when you see all those bargains) then postage is £5.95 (ouch!).

Chad Valley Inflatable Car Ball Pit & Paddling Pool: £9.99 delivered @ Argos ebay

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 30 March, 2015 at 8:48 pm

 Chad Valley Inflatable Car Ball Pit & Paddling Pool: £9.99 delivered @ Argos ebay

This is new to the Argos ebay outlet, and it's a bit of a bargain I think. The Chad Valley Inflatable Car is a ball pit and paddling pool, and it's for sale at £9.99 with free delivery included.

The weather here has turned cold and wet so I'm thinking ball pit might be the first use this one will get, and use it as a pool when we get some sunshine and warmth, not the snow we got this morning. :(

I know for sure that my toddler would love playing in this, whether there were balls in it, water in it, or just himself sat there making beep beep noises and pretending to drive. You can't really go wrong for less than a tenner delivered can you?

FREE Easter Egg Hunt: Saturday 4th April @ Smyths Toys

by Lisa Hayes in Freebies on 30 March, 2015 at 7:52 pm

FREE Easter Egg Hunt: Saturday 4th April @ Smyths Toys

This coming Saturday every Smyths Toys store in the country will be holding a FREE Easter Egg Hunt*!

Here's what they say will be happening:

The Easter Bunny has paid a visit to Smyths Toys Superstores nationwide with a whole bunch of yummy Easter Eggs up for grabs! Children are invited down to our branches nationwide from 10am-4pm* on Easter Saturday (April 4th) to complete the FREE Easter Egg Hunt with a whole bunch of delicious chocolatey treats up for grabs! Better be quick though as it’s only while stocks last and you’ll be hopping mad if you miss out!

Although the Easter Egg Hunt is due to be on between 10am and 4pm, it is while stocks last only, so if they get lots of children taking part there is the chance they may run out of chocolate eggs. It's only one egg per child who takes part though, so fingers crossed they have enough.

Sounds like a nice bit of free fun, as long as the kids are happy to just get the free egg and don't expect you to take home the rest of the shop... although they do have some good deals on at Smyths at the moment. ;)

FREE Disney Easter Activity Printables @ Disney Family

FREE Disney Easter Activity Printables @ Disney Family

So, it's raining, and the kids are getting bored already (mine's at school still!). How about a spot of egg decorating? No, not just spots and flowers - Disney eggs!

Disney Family have lots of different templates that are free to download so that you can print and cut out the pieces to decorate eggs to look like your favourite Disney characters. You can choose from Buzz Lightyear, Eeyore, Pluto, Mickey, The Cheshire Cat, Goofy, Toy Story Aliens, and lots more. My favourites are Kermit and Piglet - I just think they look the most effective, but they are all really fab for Disney fans.

If egg decorating is not your thing, then there are colouring sheets, egg wrappers, cards, gift boxes, recipes, and lots more ideas of things to make and do. Everything is completely free to download and print, so all it will cost you is the paper and the ink in your printer.

Have fun Disney fans!

Make Your Own Easter Bonnet Kit: was £10, now £2.50 @Mothercare

There's still a few days to go until the Easter celebrations start, and if the weather continues like this we will need lots to keep the children busy indoors!

This Make Your Own Easter Bonnet kit was £10 and is now £2.50 at Mothercare. It includes a straw hat, with ribbon and accessories for decorating. It's a nice easy craft that is just a case of sticking and then wearing the hat, then the kids can have their own Easter parade.

If you think the decorations provided aren't enough then Mothercare also sell a set of Easter Foam Stickers for just 50p, so the hat could be made super sparkly with those.

You can click and collect for free, or home delivery is from £3.95.

Exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier: Pre-order @ The Lego Shop

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 30 March, 2015 at 2:57 pm

Exclusive LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier: Pre-order @ The Lego Shop

This is not a deal. Not in any way. This Lego set is the full RRP, not reduced at all. BUT for any Lego fans this is just to share how magnificent this new Lego set is, so that you can gaze upon it in awe... then faint at the price tag.

The Lego Marvel Super Heroes The SHIELD Helicarrier is available for pre-order exclusively at The Lego Shop online, with an expected due date of 6th April. It has 2996 pieces, and is recommended for ages 16 and above. Yep, not for kids this one.

You get to build the huge Helicarrier with its two runways, microscale jets and ground support vehicles. There are 12 microfigures to display in the decks and the interiors, along with loads of teeny accessories. You also get 5 normal sized minifigures:  Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye and Maria Hill.

This is a set that you don't want to let the kids near once you've built it, you'll have to cragle it together and keep in the basement. It's £269.99.

In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy £6.74 @ Tesco / Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 30 March, 2015 at 2:31 pm

In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy £6.74 @ Tesco / Amazon

This In The Night Garden Talking Upsy Daisy toy looks like a great buy for only £6.74, and Tesco reduced it as part of their big toys sale, and Amazon have price matched.

She is 23cm tall, soft and cuddly and says phrases from the TV show when you squeeze her tummy. Seeing as it's really young children who love the show it's good to know that this toy is suitable from birth so it's safe for the toddler fans.

I know there have been no new In The Night Garden episodes for years, but CBeebies still show it at 6.20pm every evening, and the one time they moved it they were flooded with complaints. Lots of parents use the programme to wind down their toddlers before bedtime, and there are always new fans because of this. My youngest is just short a few weeks away from turning two, and he has just started to take a shine to In The Night Garden, but he's sticking to gender stereotypes and liking the Ninky Nonk rather than Upsy Daisy!

Amazon will delivery this for free if your total ordered is over £10, otherwise delivery charges will apply. You can click and collect from Tesco for free, or delivery charges are from £3.

Peppa Pig Shaped Backpack: was £8.99 now £4.49 @ Argos

How cute is this Peppa Pig bag? And it's half price too! This Peppa Pig Shaped Backpack was £8.99, and is now down to £4.49 at Argos, which is a cracking price for such a different character bag like this.

It features Peppa in a yellow spotty dress with a little lacy detail at the bottom. It's a full sized kids backpack, 6 litre capacity, and 32cm high.

Stock seems very widely available, and can be delivered from £3.95 or you can reserve and collect for free.

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?

by Nada in Misc on 30 March, 2015 at 11:32 am

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.

Argos certainly have been upping their game recently with price cuts. We regularly find awesome deals and bargains on their site. The beauty of Argos is that because there are so many stores across the United Kingdom, it makes them so accessible to people.

They have nearly always got a clearance of some sort on, but let's face it, so do all the other High Street retailers. This one features 198 reduced items and they start from only 49p. Stock up on the Birthday Gifts, Toys for the Summer or even that Festive Event at the end of the year.
