Chicco Music Band £11.99 @ Argos

Know a little person with a birthday soon? Look super generous by buying them the Chicco Music Band from Argos. It was £39.99 but it's been reduced to just £11.99. This is selling at Toys R Us for £39.99 and at Boots.com for £32. This is an amazing bargain for a wee one. Go, go, GOOOOO!

That Chicco Music Band looks like the type of toy that we would recoil in horror at, if our child was to receive one. Why? It's a noisy one. Kids love nothing more than creating a racket so why not get them one and then they can do it until their hearts content.

This interactive table toy features eight manual activities and three individual activity stations. There's lights and sounds to encourage your child to play on with what looks like a drum kit. Each station can be removed so that baby can sit down and play rather than being stood at this Music Band table.

You can reserve and collect the Chicco Music Band for FREE from your local Argos store or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your front door.

Lazy Fish Shade Baby Pool / Ball Pit: £13.95 with Free Delivery @ Amazon

 Lazy Fish Shade Baby Pool / Ball Pit: £13.95 with Free Delivery @ Amazon

If you want a paddling pool for the baby or toddler this summer then this one looks like a great choice. The Lazy Fish Shade Baby Pool is only £13.95 at Amazon, with free delivery. It's shallow enough for the very young, it has a sun shade, and it looks amazing! Who wouldn't want to paddle in the mouth of a lazy yawning fish?

There are cheaper baby pools out there, but this has much bigger sun shade than most, so is really going to help keep baby protected in the sunshine.

It's an inflatable pool that can be used with water in the summer, or as a ball pool when it's not warm enough for paddling, and the dozens of reviews are really positive from people who have used the pool in both of these ways.

It is designed for children aged 1 to 3 years, as it's not going to be sturdy enough, or big enough for older children. For toddlers and babies this looks just right for a bit of supervised splashing about this summer. Will it be this price then? Maybe not, so I'd be tempted to get it now and put it away for the warmer weather.

How To Keep The Sleep Routine When The Clocks Change

For those of you who weren't aware the clocks change to British Summer Time this weekend. For lots of people this means they lose an hour in bed on Saturday night - for parents this can mean a complete breakdown of the bedtime routine, as kids refuse to get up in the morning or go to sleep at night.

If your children still have to make it into school on time on Monday like mine, or if you still have work, nursery or other routines that need to be kept you have the weekend only to get the kids to synchronise with the new times. Help!

We've put our heads together, and here are a few things we think will help:

My Big Regret: I Killed The Easter Bunny

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Features on 27 March, 2015 at 6:36 pm

My Big Regret: I Killed The Easter Bunny

Are your kids counting down the sleeps until the Easter bunny pays a visit? If so, I’m green with envy. Because there’s no such anticipatiion in my house, and it’s all my fault. You see, I accidentally killed the Easter bunny.

I never meant to put the kibosh on the Easter bunny; I still blame my son’s nursery teacher for setting in motion the wheels that spelled the Easter bunny’s untimely end.

So what happened?

Every kid’s favourite chocolate-laden cotton-tailed character met with his demise a few years back when my son came home from nursery gabbling ten-to-the-dozen that he couldn’t wait to see what the Easter bunny would bring for him this year.

I was washing up the dinner dishes at the time, in my defence, so my mind was probably on the morality of opening the wine before bath-time, not the wider ethics of encouraging kids to believe in a fictional giant rabbits who hand out chocolate willy-nilly. (At least Santa makes kids work for their spoils, after all.)

So I certainly wasn’t thinking straight. That’s the only explanation I can find for why I told my cherubic three year old that the Easter bunny wasn’t real. I might as well have bludgeoned that poor bunny to death right there in my kitchen before my son’s very eyes.

Kids Nightwear From £4 and Buy One Get One Half Price @ Tesco

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 27 March, 2015 at 5:33 pm

 Kids Nightwear From £4 and Buy One Get One Half Price @ Tesco

My kids always need new pyjamas. They seem to wear out quicker than any of their other clothing, and I don't know what I'm doing wrong but the tops always shrink and the bottoms seem to stretch. Anyway, I'm going to stock up at Tesco now. They have a Buy One Get One Half Price offer on selected kids nightwear, including pyjamas, onesies, dressing gowns and blankets. (There's a pair of sunglasses in there too, but I think that's just for comedy value).

Prices start at just £4 a pair, so you can get 2 pairs of PJs for £6 - that's about as cheap as I have ever seen them!

There are no character nightwear items, they are all Tesco ones, but there are a variety of styles and designs, and at that price I'm not bothered what pictures they have on them to be honest! There are plenty of shortie styles too which will be great for the warmer weather or holidays.

The discount is automatically applied with no code to enter, but it will not show up until you have logged in at the checkout. Just make sure it has worked before you enter your card details! Click and collect is free, or home delivery on clothing costs from £3.95.

Kid's Picnic Bench £19.99 @ Home Bargains

Kid's Picnic Bench £19.99 @ Home Bargains

We're all hoping for some good weather this Easter holiday so we can get out on the garden, and I've already been asked if we can have tea outside, do homework outside... the kids just don't want to come in! This is another great buy from Home Bargains that might help. The Starplay Children's Picnic Bench is £19.99, and that's the same price it has been for the last 2 years!

It's a sturdy plastic picnic style bench in bright colours that comes flat packed.It's suitable for use from 18 months of age, but the children in the picture look considerably older than that, so I imagine it would be fine for older children as well. It looks like it would be ideal for eating outside, as well as colouring and playing games, and being plastic it will be easy to keep clean as well.

Strangely this item is Click and Collect only, and cannot be delivered, but this service is free. If you're lucky enough to live near a Home Bargains then this Starplay Picnic Bench looks like a great value kids bench for the garden.

12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership: £21.85 @ cdkeys with Facebook Like (XBox 360 or XBox One)

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 27 March, 2015 at 2:54 pm

12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership: £21.85 @ cdkeys with Facebook Like (XBox 360 or XBox One)

If you need to renew your XBox Live Membership any time soon then this is the best price it has been for a very long time - at least a year in fact!

cdkeys are selling a 12 Month XBox Live Gold Membership for £22.99, but when you 'Like' their Facebook page you will get an individual code generated that will give you en extra 5% off, taking the price down to only £21.85! You don't even have to be a member of Facebook - just click at the top of their page where it says "Click here to get 5% off!", enter your email, and you get your discount code!

The membership is a digital download, so you get sent a code by email rather than a physical card in the post, and it's just about instant once you have purchased. When you enter the code on your XBox 360 or XBox One the 12 months subscription will add on top of whatever you have left of your old one, so you don't need to wait for your current subscription to expire to use this.

It really is a big saving, as if you bought this direct from XBox the 12 months membership should cost you £39.99, so this is very nearly half that price!

If you've read this far then I imagine you already know what the subscription gets you, but you can find all the information on the cdkeys link above. (They explain it much better than I could! I'm more of a Nintendo fan...)

Check Your Local Asda For These Pampers Babydry Mega Boxes @ £3!

by Nada in Deals on 27 March, 2015 at 11:44 am

Check Your Local Asda For These Pampers Babydry Mega Boxes @ £3!

Passing an Asda today? Keep your eyes peeled for these Mega Boxes of Pampers for just £3. These normally sell for around £7 on offer but we have heard that the Asda in Benton, Newcastle have reduced these to just £3 in a multitude of sizes. Now we can't guarantee that you local will have these at such a low price but we say it's worth a look if you are passing.

We reckon that over the next few weeks more and more stores will be reducing these Pampers Babydry Mega Boxes as the cardboard box packaging is being phased out in favour of new soft packaging. So, you might find that whilst your nearest Asda don't have these at this price yet they might soon.

The amount of nappies in each box is dependent on what size you require.

If you can't find these Pampers Babydry Mega Boxes for £3 then why not see what other Pampers bargains are on offer with Pampers' Wonder Weekend, here.

Let us know if you manage to bag one of these £3 bargains!

FREE Organix Strawberry & Banana Porridge 120g/Organix Multigrain Mini Puffs 90g @ Sainsbury's

FREE Organix Strawberry & Banana Porridge 120g/Organix Multigrain Mini Puffs 90g @ Sainsbury's

Do you do your online shopping with Sainsbury's? If you do then be sure and get a freebie when you order. Sainsbury's have 3000 boxes of Organix Baby Breakfast foods. There's a choice of two: Multigrain Mini Puffs 90g or Strawberry and Banana Porridge 120g. My son goes wild for these and although they are suitable from 4 months (porridge) and 7 months my little Daniel is more than happy to scoff them still at one year old.

How do you get your FREEBIE? Simply do your shopping as normal with Sainsbury's then add either or both (you will only get one FREE) to your shopping cart. Then, once you are at the checkout stage, simply enter promo code FRORG1STCK and you will then receive one of them for FREE. That is providing they haven't been snapped up already.

The Organix Multigrain Mini Puffs 90g box* would cost you £2.50 without the code and the Strawberry and Banana Porridge* would cost £2.20.

You have until the 7th of April to claim yours, and this is the date that your delivery must also be by.

Even though the Strawberry and Banana Porridge is suitable from 4 months plus we must point out that the recommended weaning age is 6 months old.

Sofia The First Hooded Blanket £3.99 @ Argos

Sofia The First Hooded Blanket £3.99 @ Argos

This makes me chuckle...The Sofia the First Hooded Blanket is absolutely brilliant. Look at it! Who knew blankets could be so much fun? Head to Argos and you can grab one for only £3.99. That's less than half the price it was previously, it had been £13.29. If you know a little Sofia fan then you just have to buy them this.

The Sofia the First Hooded Blanket is one of those comforting things that your child will snuggle into at night (not wearing it I may add, I am paranoid about things around necks at bedtime) or around the them whilst they watch cartoons at 6am in the morning.

It is a fleecy, soft material (100% polyester) and is machine washable at thirty degrees. I love the fact, and I am sure any Sofia fan will, that when the hood is up and the blanket is wrapped around, it looks like the Princess herself.

You can reserve and collect the Sofia the First Hooded Blanket for FREE from your nearest Argos store or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Chad Valley Children's Desk £12.49 @ Argos

Chad Valley Children's Desk £12.49 @ Argos

The Chad Valley Children's Desk is just £12.49 at Argos just now. It's original price was £24.99, which is still very reasonable. If you child loves to draw or paint then this is just ideal. Or perhaps they need somewhere quiet to sit and do their homework. The Chad Valley Children's Desk has been giving a four star rating so I would think that would suggest it's worth it's sub £13 price.

It's made entirely by plastic which is really what you want for a little desk. Plastic is much easier to clean than wood and it can take a good scrubbing. There are little holes for paint pots, pencil and pens to be stored in and plenty of space for paper to be placed for drawing on.

Attached to the desk is a plastic stool for your little one to sit on. This Chad Valley Desk is suggested to be suitable for children aged three years old and above.

You can reserve and collect the Chad Valley Children's Desk for FREE from your nearest Argos store or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your front door.

Big Savings On Childrenswear: Items From 75p @ Matalan

The sale at Matalan is on and there's plenty of items with £££'s off. Matalan are pretty reasonable with their prices anyway and it's the place to go for kids clothes when your budget is limited. When the sale is on they are practically giving away the stuff. I mean items start from just 75p, where else has sales like that? The quality is miles above of Primark so you cannot grumble at all when it comes to value for money.

Matalan is a firm favourite of mine but I am not a fan of their stores. I much prefer shopping on their website, and today is no exception. There's lots of bargains to be had and it's not just all the crud the can't sell either.

Check out these Hooded Towel and Wash Mitt Sets reduced from £7 to £4. Available in Simba*, Winnie the Pooh* and Miss Bunny*.  They are ideal new baby gifts and such a great price.

Another new baby bargain is this T-Shirt and Joggers Outfit* was £7 now £3.50.

You can collect your order for FREE from your nearest Matalan store or pay £3.95 for home delivery.
