 Tommee Tippee Explora Baby Food Blender £7.20 Was £19.99 @ Amazon

This is going to FLY off the shelves at this price - and possibly before I even get this post uploaded! So if you fancy one, nab it now. What am I on about? the Tommee Tippee Explora Baby Food Blender - it's on special offer at Amazon right now, reduced from £19.99 to just £7.20.

This is one of *those* gadgets that mums seem to either love or loathe, but I know a fair few who say they couldn't have got through the weaning stage without one.

It's billed as being perfect for blending small portions, and has a two speed setting for different textures including purees, mash, and chunks. It's also reportedly easy to clean, as the container and blade can just be popped straight into the dishwasher.

So c'mon, don't waste time reading this cos it really won't stay in stock for long...

Hot Wheels Car Maker Playset £7.49 Was £22.49 @ Argos

Have you heard of the Hot Wheels Car Maker playset? I hadn't until now, but it looks like the sort of toy that my car-crazy kids would love. And right now it's just £7.49 at Argos, reduced from £22.49.

This playset lets you build your very own Hot Wheels cars. It comes with pre-built chassis that you can attach your creations to, plus stickers to decorate them. You simply insert the wax and the mould of your choice into the Car Maker, and in less than 8 minutes you will have the vehicle body in the colour of your choosing.

Argos customers have rated this 4.8 out of a possible 5 stars in reviews, too, which bodes well.

Pretty neat, no? I'm definitely snapping up a few of these to pop in our present drawer and as stocking fillers. That should keep the kids quiet for, oooh, all of five minutes on Christmas morning!

Standard delivery from Argos is £3.95, or you can click to collect it at your local store for free.

Playskool Poppin Park Elefun Busy Ball Popper £15.15 Was £28.19 @ Amazon

The Poppin Park Elefun Busy Ball Popper by Playskool is reduced at Amazon from £28.19 to just £15.15 right now.

It's basically a cute little toy with some educational value - it can apparently help teach hand-eye co-ordination, cause and effect, and object permanence. Air-powered, it comes with 5 balls and plays 10 different tunes as well as popping the balls into the air with easy push-button activation.

The reviews of this toy are a bit varied, but here's a fairly comprehensive one to give you an idea of what to expect if you purchase this:

"Thought this looked great fun, and thankfully my 9 month old agrees. Build quality is excellent, has a nice solid feel to the toy. It's nice and colourful, and the balls are well colour co-ordinated with the toy itself. Seems perfect for our 9 month old. He often is a bit lazy when it comes to sitting up - but this holds his attention so well that he was so happy to sit for ages playing. Our friend's 2 year old also throughly enjoyed playing with it, so it seems to be span a range of ages. In summary - highly recommended."

Delivery will be free since you're spending more than £10.

MAM Self-Sterilising Anti-Colic 15pc Starter Set £17.99 Delivered @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 25 July, 2014 at 10:53 am

MAM Self-Sterilising Anti-Colic 15pc Starter Set £17.99 Delivered @ Argos

You know when people say that you learn something every day? It’s true. You can now get self-sterilising baby bottles. I am impressed.

This MAM anti-colic self-sterilising set is only £17.99 delivered from Argos at the moment. I found it half price at £14.99 from Babies R Us but its delivery only at £4.95 so this is the cheapest option.

Baby bottles are not cheap, well not if you want good ones. It’s even worse if you require anti-colic ones because as soon as they label them as such, the price rockets.

In this set you get 15 pieces altogether, two small 130ml bottles, two medium 160ml bottles, four large 260ml bottles, four sealing discs, a soft spout, a handle and a dummy. Not too bad at all for the price.

That’s not just it though, wash these thoroughly then stick them into the microwave for 3 minutes and that’s them sterilised. Which, I am assuming means no need for a steriliser. Think of the saving,there alone.  If you are dubious about how good these are then read the reviews on the Argos page. This set is rated at 4.5 stars.

Like I mentioned before, all the bottles are anti-colic. If you have had a colicky baby then you know how hellish it is for baby and for you. Anything that can help rectify that is worth every penny in my eyes.

Delivery is free, so why not have look if you are looking for an affordable baby bottle feeding starter kit.

Boom Boom Balloon Game £5.99 @ Argos

Boom Boom Balloon Game £5.99 @ Argos

We are always looking for games that we can play altogether as a family. There’s always someone who gets bored after two minutes, then the whole thing descends into chaos.

Boom Boom Balloon game promises suspense and I think it looks like it would be fun for everyone. This is only £5.99 at Argos just now. It had a previous price of £8.99, and £17.99 before that. Not a bad price for bring the family together for a giggle.

Everyone hates when a balloon bursts, and this is the idea of the game. Each player must take a shot of clicking in sticks, trying not to pop the balloon. The stick you use is determined by what number you roll on the dice.  I just know I would be in suspense with this game, and I know my kids would be shrieking with excitement.

Now, nothing aggravates me more than games that require costly refills. I had a look, to see if once all the smiley face balloons have been used up, if you can use normal bog standard ones. From what I gather you most certainly can.

Stock levels are good on this, but of course with any deal I would suggest moving quick as things can sell out quickly once we post them.

This game is reserve and collect only from your local Argos store, which is free.

VTech Bounce and Discover Frog £14.99 @ Boots.com

by Nada in Deals on 25 July, 2014 at 9:37 am

VTech Bounce and Discover Frog £14.99 @ Boots.com

I have seen the Bounce and Spin Zebra in action before and it looks like such a laugh. I think this is VTech’s version of the zebra toy. It’s looks like a similar structure.

Boots.com have the VTech Bounce and Discover Frog for half price just now, making it £14.99. This is a lot cheaper than elsewhere, Amazon have it for £28.30, Tesco for £29.98 and an expensive £33 at Debenhams.

So, what exactly does this toy do? Your baby can bounce for as long as there little legs can manage. It has buttons that teach numbers, different colours, and animal sounds when pressed. VTech toys are always educational in some way.

What surprises me is that this has a British accent, not sure what one of those is, but normally toys are American sounding. I think it will be a very polite, generic sounding English accent. You know the one they use in American films that no one in real life has. How great would it be if it was a cockney or broad Glaswegian accent?

One of this froggy’s features is the roller ball and motion sensor. It is supposed to enhance hand-eye co-ordination and motor skills. Once movement is detected, by the motion sensor, funny sounds can be heard.

There’s two different modes of play and six sing-along songs to stimulate your little darling. It will suit children between a year and a half and three years old.

Collection costs £1.95 from your local Boots store (free if you spend over £20) or have it delivered for £2.95

Two Sets Of Three Me To You Ice Packs 67p DELIVERED @ Internet Gift Store

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 24 July, 2014 at 9:40 pm

Two Sets Of Three Me To You Ice Packs 67p DELIVERED @ Internet Gift StoreInternet Gift Store is selling off a 3-pack of Me To You Ice Packs for 75p per pack. There's free delivery till the end of the month too, so if you add the code ICLICKED you could get the set for 67p delivered. However, if you add two packs to your basket, you can also use the code FACEBOOK1 (minimum spend £1) and take another 50p off, giving you two sets of 3 for 85p delivered.

Do remember that much like Amazon, Internet Gift Store has a set number of items at a price and then they raise the price as the item gets more popular, but hopefully you'll get them first!

These are great for cooling lunch and cooling drinks on the go - perfect for keeping your snacks over the holidays cool and for putting in lunch bags with yoghurt and so on.

They're also really useful for cooling down sun burn, bumps, bruises, or accidental little burns in the kitchen - I'm always burning my fingers and have something just like this.

In the past some of you have commented about the offer not working if you pay with PayPal. Just to confirm, I have just bought two sets of ice packs, using PayPal, for 85p delivered, so it definitely works.

Frozen Queen Elsa & Anna Wall Decal Sticker £7.99 Delivered @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 24 July, 2014 at 9:11 pm

Frozen Queen Elsa & Anna Wall Decal Sticker £7.99 Delivered @ AmazonAmazon seller ebesttop1 is selling a large Elsa and Anna wall decal sticker for £7.99 delivered. They say they dispatch within two to three days, so it shouldn't be too long before you can bring the magic of Frozen to life in your own child's room.

Remember to click on 'other sellers' here: 

This is  really lovely looking wall sticker, perfect for party decor, or room decorating too. It's not official Disney stock, I'd imagine, which is why it doesn't require a second mortgage!

You can use it in bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms and anywhere else that there's a smooth surface to stick it on. Apparently it's easy to apply, remove, reposition and reuse without damaging the walls, and it's a great size at 74*40cm.

I've not tried these, I don't know how they stick or how well they last, but at £7.99 I'd be more than happy to give it a shot. It would have to be rather appalling for my kids not to love it!

LED Colour Changing Dinosaur/Giraffe Lamp £4 @ B&Q

LED Colour Changing Dinosaur/Giraffe Lamp £4 @ B&Q

Just to show you readers that I do pay attention, here are two children’s nightlight lamps that stay on until you choose to switch off. When I have posted nightlights in the past, a few of you mentioned that you wanted one without an automatic switch off function.

I saw these I thought they were unisex and very cute. B&Q are selling these for only £4. They were £6.98, so not a bad saving.

There is a choice of two, the giraffe or the dinosaur. These are approximately 20cm in height, which is perfect for a bedside table in a child’s room. They have a plug fitting so they will stay on for as long as you require.

With a soft glow LED, these change through a variety of colour creating an ambient effect to your child’s bedroom at night. The reviews are good too. Both lamps received above four star ratings each.

If your child, is one with special needs, then these can be used for sensory rooms. I visit a sensory room with my baby in my nearest city and he loves it. It has such a calming effect on him.

Both are available for reserve and collect  from your local B&Q store, which is free or pay a whopping £5 delivery to have it to your door.

I would like to point out that the giraffe is collection only as the stock levels aren't as high as the dinosaur. I made sure there was still plenty throughout the country though, so don't worry.

VTech Crawl & Learn Bright Lights Ball £8.00 Was £15.99 @ Amazon

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 24 July, 2014 at 7:41 pm

VTech Crawl & Learn Bright Lights Ball £8.00 Was £15.99 @ Amazon

The VTech Crawl & Learn Bright Lights ball is a little motorised ball which is ideal for encouraging babies to crawl, and right now at Amazon it's reduced from £15.99 to just £8.00.

Lots of parents worry about whether their babies are reaching the right milestones at the appropriate stages, and with a late-crawler in our house I think this looks like a great little item for helping to encourage reluctant crawlers to get moving!

It gently rolls on its own, and turning the ladybird key spins the top disc and activates various tunes. It also features animal press-buttons which help introduce little ones to various animals and the sounds they make, while the light-up shape buttons introduce colours, shapes, and numbers. There are also several ribbons for curious little fingers to explore.

The Amazon reviews are really positive too, with all 30 customers who have left a review rating it either 4 or 5 out of a possible 5 stars.

Free delivery too if you spend £10.

All in all, it looks like a must-have baby buy.

Lindam Door Bouncer £11 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 24 July, 2014 at 7:29 pm

Lindam Door Bouncer £11 Delivered @ Amazon

A word of warning, these sold out very,very quickly in the Mothercare sale at £10. I should know I tried to bag one myself. Here is your chance to grab one for £11 delivered from Amazon.

These are also available for £11 at Tesco Direct, delivery is not included but if you have enough Clubcard points then you may be better off getting one from here. They are included in the Clubcard Boost deal.

They are currently £20 at Asda and £19.99 at Sainsburys. Tesco normally sells these at £16.50 but they have £5.50 off just now. £11 is a good price for this.

The thing about these bouncers that makes them so popular is that they require no faffing with screwing into the wall. They just simply attach to the top of your door frame by a safe, tension clamp.

Lindam are renowned for their safety products and they pride themselves at the fact, that these are tested up to one million bounces. It’s fully supportive of your child and maintains their natural posture.

The seat is machine washable, thank goodness. Let’s face it, it will get covered in puke and slavers. It can be used as soon as your baby can hold his/her head up and will take up to 12kg.

The straps are adjustable and there's a back buckle so that baby does not fall out. The seat is padded adequately so that your little one does not get a sore bum. The bouncer itself is height adjustable so you can shorten it as baby grows.

I must admit, I love watching babies in these. Boing, boing, BOING! It’s amazing how excited they get. These bouncers do look like good fun.

Remember, these sold quickly at £10 and you are getting them for £11 delivered. If you want one don’t hesitate.

Mega Bloks Twirl and Whirl Ladybird Ride on £10.30 Delivered @ Amazon

Mega Bloks Twirl and Whirl Ladybird Ride on £10.30 Delivered @ Amazon

Are you looking for a ride on for your little girl? Amazon have Mega Bloks Twirl and Whirl Ladybird ride on for only £10.30 delivered. This is currently retailing at £25 at Tesco and £29.99 at Boots so you can see why I am sharing this with you.

It’s made of bright chunky pink coloured plastic, and is suitable for ages one to four years old. It’s supposed to look like a ladybird, and whilst I think it’s very cute I really cannot see much of a resemblance to a ladybird.

The wheels are on castors so are very good for your child to manoeuvre whichever way they like. The whirl and twirl in the name is because of the wheels on this and claims to be more free moving than other ride on toys.

If your little one decides to be a bit of a speed demon then there is a large handlebar for them to cling on to.

This is aimed at being a first ride on toy for your young child and can stack and store Mega Bloks on it and in it. Although, it doesn’t look like it would hold many.

Tesco Clothing Sale Further Reductions Starting from £1 @ Clothing At Tesco

Tesco Clothing Sale Further Reductions Starting from £1 @ Clothing At Tesco

Tesco have a lot of bargains in their summer clearance sale just now. Items start from just £1 for children’s clothing and babywear.

I must admit I always seem to visit Asda before Tesco when it comes to children’s clothes. I guess that is because I associate George @ Asda as being the cheaper clothing range. This sale has certainly opened my eyes.

There’s a huge selection of baby, girls and boys clothes and great availability in sizes. I strongly recommend a look if you have little ones. I would get in quick though as at these prices there's going to be a lot of items selling out fast.

For example they have the Cherokee Gingham girls’ shirt starting from only £1. This was originally £9 so that's a great saving. Older sizes are £1.50. Sizes start from 7-8 right up to 11-12.

It’s not just clothes in the sale for children either, there’s shoes, wellies and sandals. They are all heavily reduced and starting from £1.50.

If you enter eCoupon FFDELIVERYFF when you are at the checkout then you might get a further 10% off and free delivery. Apparently, this eCoupon only works if it's your first order with Clothing at Tesco and there is a minimum spend of £20 required, but it works on sale stock.

All items can be collected for free from your local Tesco store or £3.95 for delivery if your order isn’t eligible to use the eCoupon.

Chad Valley Spray and Splash Whale £3.74 @ Argos

Chad Valley Spray and Splash Whale £3.74 @ ArgosThis summer has turned out to be a right scorcher. I love the summer, the kids love it but then they get bored and start fighting. Check this out to keep them smiling….

Argos are selling the Chad Valley Spray and Splash Whale for only £3.74 just now. It was originally £4.99. It is also included in the Argos deal of three toys for £10. Perfect for those of us parents on a budget.

I don’t care what anyone says but nothing beats getting messy or soaked when you are a child. This spray and splash whale looks like so much fun. I know it’s fun because my neighbour has one and my children had the time of their lives playing with it.

It’s a very simple idea, you attach it’s hose to an outside tap and that’s it. It is an inflatable whale that squirts water all over the kids, the garden and beyond. Taking only two minutes to inflate, you’re good to go in no time.

I think it’s worth checking out the other items in the three for £10 deal, as they are all outside fun toys that will keep those little darlings occupied over the summer.

Reserve and collect from your local Argos or pay £3.95 to have it delivered.

Girls' Ballet Pumps £1.29 @ Sports Direct

Girls' Ballet Pumps £1.29 @ Sports Direct

Sports Direct are selling three different styles of Girl's Ballet Pumps for £1.29, that's a whopping £11.70 off the original £12.99. Delivery on orders under £100 is £3.99, so that'll push them up to £5.28, which is my opinion is still a bargain. It doesn't say specifically that it's an online only offer, so you could also check in store, but to be honest, if you want them, I'd go for it, delivery and all. There are also Croc-like cloggs for £2.49 and Mary Janes for £3.50. 

At the moment there looks to be plenty of stock in a variety of sizes from C3 - 2.

According to the reviews on these you need to order big, as they are smaller than they 'should' be, and quite narrow too, so bare that in mind when you place your order.

If you're paying delivery it's probably worth buying up a size too, so you have enough going forward a while.

These thigh length Batman shorts are made from pure cotton, which is just great for this weather. They feature a Batman design on the right leg and on the back pocket and - some textile speak for you: contrasting exterior stitch detailing and a ribbed waistband offering a comfortable fit.

They pull on with a ribbed waistband, so no fussing with buttons, zips and belts.

Aren't these Batman shorts sweet?
