Hasbro Play-Doh Super Colour Pack £9.88 @ Amazon

Hasbro Play-Doh Super Colour Pack £9.88 @ Amazon

Play-Doh kids love it, we parents hate but let's face it, it's not in the same league as Moon Sand. It's actually quite therapeutic (Play-Doh) if you sit down with your child. Squidging it and digging your nails in it can be quite a stress reliever, the mess on the carpet left behind not so much. If you use it at the kitchen table then Play-Doh isn't a problem at all. Grab this Play-Doh Super Colour Pack for just £9.88 from Amazon. That's the cheapest I have ever seen this for as it usually sells for around the £19 mark.

The Hasbro Play-Doh Super Colour Pack contains twenty tubs of Play-Doh. That means you will have ever colour/shade under the sun to make great models with.

It's not suitable for children under age three years old, although I am willing to bet a three year old will have a wee taste out of curiosity.

With this much Play-Doh you can make anything....think Wallace and Gromit.

To get FREE Super Saver delivery from Amazon you must spend at least £10, so just top up your Play-Doh order with something costing 12p or more. Like this Ruler*.

Peppa Pig Bumper Hair Accessories Set £2.99 @ Argos

Mother's Day: Up To 50% Off Afternoon Tea Gift Experiences @ Very

 Mother's Day: Up To 50% Off Afternoon Tea Gift Experiences @ Very

My auntie took us all out for Afternoon Tea just before she married my uncle a couple of years back and it was the first time (not including Betty's Tea Room in York, when I was a teen). What a refreshing treat it was. A pot of Earl Grey, Smoked Salmon Sandwiches, and not forget those delicious cakes. Afternoon Tea is rarely cheap if you go somewhere fancy but I have found a deal just begging to be bought for Mother's Day. Up to 50% off Afternoon Tea Virgin Gift Experiences at Very.

To be honest when I looked at these Virgin Gift Experiences on Very I thought, yeah, yeah, they aren't going to be cheaper than buying direct from Virgin GE themselves. They are and what great savings there is to purchase. I am tempted to buy myself one, you know to reward myself for being a super mother. Seriously, though it's an impressive present for Mother's Day and a refreshing change from chocs and flowers.

These three deals look to me to be the best value: Afternoon Tea for Two at Marco Pierre White Restaurant* was £65 now £32, Luxury Champagne Afternoon Tea and Thames River Cruise for Two* was £100 now £50 and Virgin Days Spa Retreat and Afternoon Tea for Two* was £78 now £39.

With a total of sixty four toy items to choose from and brands like Fisher Price and VTech included.

The My Little Pony Equestria Girls Rainbow Rocks DJ-Pon 3 Doll* was £17.99 and is now £8.99. This very same doll sells for £13. These are popular.

Another great reduction is the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Sing A Song Med Kit* was £19.99 now £13,99. This interactive toy is a good choice for a first birthday present as it is suitable for children aged six months old.

My favourite toy in the JL clearance has to be the Remote Control Forklift*. It's reduced from £35 to just £17.50 and looks like great fun.

LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Light Set - Half Price, now £17.49 @ John Lewis

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 8:50 pm

LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Light Set - Half Price, now £17.49 @ John Lewis

Lego is expensive, there's no denying that, so when we find anything Lego for half price we get a little excited! This LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Light Set was £34.99 at John Lewis, and is now half that price at £17.49! The cheapest I can see it for sale anywhere else is £30, so this is a cracking price.

It's official Lego Star Wars merchandise, featuring the bounty hunter Bobo Fett (Boo! He's a bad guy, right?) Here's what John Lewis say about it:

Need a cool LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett toy? As you wish. This fun, posable 19cm Boba Fett mini-figure torch features a 30 minute auto-shut-off night light function. The figure is detachable from the light up base, which enables the torch function. Featuring light-angling legs, simply press the chest plate of the beloved bounty hunter to switch on the LED lights in both feet.
Now that sound pretty cool for a Lego fan, or a Star Wars fan, and if they're fans of both then you'll be in the good books for a very long while indeed.
There are plenty in stock at the moment, but John Lewis toy deals do tend to sell really quick when the word gets out.
Standard delivery is £3, or you can click and collect for free from John Lewis or selected Waitrose stores.

30% Off Selected Playmobil Sets @ Amazon

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 7:41 pm

30% Off Selected Playmobil Sets @ Amazon

We know that Playmobil sets are really popular still, and like Lego it's rare to get a really good discount. Amazon have an offer on at the moment with up to 30% off a selection of Playmobil sets, and while I've been price checking they look like they are all cheaper at Amazon than anywhere else, some of them by  a fair few pounds.

There are 22 sets included on the offer, with prices from just £2.99 for an add on item, and other sets from £6.29. The last time Amazon did an offer like this it was just on one range, the dinosaurs, but this time there are a whole variety of series included. There's dragons, princess, city life, pirates, fairy, summer fun, western and more. If anyone is collecting then it's worth having a quick look to see if there's anything there that is on your list.

All the items seem to have good stock levels at the moment, and the offer is on until the 5th of April, but I don't know how long stocks will last, especially of the more popular sets.

Delivery is free when you spend over £10, or for Amazon Prime members, otherwise varying charges will apply. See anything you want?

Megaforce Power Rangers Fancy Dress Costume £6 (Was £12.50) @ Asda Direct

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 6:54 pm

Megaforce Power Rangers Fancy Dress Costume £6 (Was £12.50) @ Asda Direct

I absolutely loved the dressing-up costume stage when my kids were littler, and if you've got a little fan of Power Rangers then you're going to love this Megaforce Power Rangers dressing up costume. It's normally £12.50 but is now just £6.00 at Asda Direct.

There are few things quite so fun as the stage of childhood when kids are content to wander round the supermarket dressed as their favourite superhero or movie character. I have such fond memories of this, and have never regretted buying a costume for the kids on that basis - we've always had our money's worth.

There seems to be stock left in ages 3-4 years and 5-6 years but the 9-10 years size has already sold out, so I'd imagine these will sell out pretty quickly, too.

This is an all-in-one costume with hook and loop tape fastening, and it comes with a facemark included, which looks pretty robust, too.

You can either order one online using the link above and opt to collect it in-store at your nearest branch of Asda, or pay an extra £2.95 for standard home delivery.

Buy A Night In Heartlake City

by Luschka van Onselen in Misc on 28 February, 2015 at 5:31 pm

Buy A Night In Heartlake CityLegoland Windsor are beavering away in their off season right now, building a new suite of Premier themed rooms that I have no doubt will be extremely popular: you can now take your Friends loving daughters and sons to Heartlake City* folks. Yes, that's right. The new themed rooms are from the LEGO Friends series, and my girls would pretty much sell each other to go. And we'd just about have to make that sacrifice, because at £457.30 for a family of four for one night it's never going to happen.

We love Legoland. We used to live nearby and my kids had toddler passes and for £50 a year, we'd go frequently, up to 35 times, one year. Last year we picked up an amazing deal for my daughter's fifth birthday and spent a night at the Legoland Hotel in a Standard Pirate room. With breakfast it set us back about £90. Not too bad at all. In fact, you can go in the next three weeks and with the 'Winter Escapes'* package spend the night, splash about in the pool, and enjoy the free entertainment for £89 for two adults and two children, since you can't go into the park till it reopens later in March.

Book a night from the 27th of March though, and ask for a Friends room, and it will set you back  £457.30 for 2 adults and 2 children for one night, with breakfast and Legoland entry before and after.

We just love Legoland Windsor, but if I have £500 burning a hole in my pocket (remember, you've not paid for dinner or any snacks and drinks in the park yet!) I'm taking the kids abroad to Legoland Denmark, or even Paris Disneyland for much the same money!

How about you? Could you justify spending £500 on one night in a themed hotel?

Up To 40% Off Selected New Season Kids Clothes @ Debenhams, Plus FREE £5 Giftcard When You Spend £40!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 5:14 pm

Up To 40% Off Selected New Season Kids Clothes @ Debenhams, Plus FREE £5 Giftcard When You Spend £40!

This weekend Debenhams have a great offer on kids clothing, with up to 40% off selected items in the new season ranges. Prices start from just £3, and there are some really cute items for both boys and girls. As well as the Blue Zoo range, there are a few from the designers too, so it's well worth a look. Also, when you spend £40 at Debenhams you get a free £5 giftcard*, so that makes the offer even better!

There are t-shirts from £3, jackets from £9, dresses from £9.60, and more. If you choose the 'Top Offers'* you get to view the items with the biggest discounts, but there's around 20-25% off most other children's clothes as well, including occasionwear, designers, shoes and loads more too.

It makes a nice change to get such a big reduction on newer clothing, rather than on old season styles and odd sizes. This gives a much better selection of sizes, and it'll be great for holiday clothes and the spring and summer too.

Standard home delivery is free when you spend over £30, or £3.99 when you spend less. If you are near a store then the click and collect service is free. All these offers are only on until Sunday, so you've got another day or so to browse.

 

Thinking About Mother's Day Gifts? What About Charity Gifts?

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 4:38 pm

Thinking About Mother's Day Gifts? What About Charity Gifts? It's yet another gift giving time of year, and this time us mothers are at the (well deserved) receiving end.

For some of us, that will mean making our own presents with the kids, or shopping for our breakfast in bed, which hopefully we wont have to make or clean up. For others it means total spoiling from sunrise to sunset. For some, Mother's Day brings a twinge of sadness, for either a lost mother, or a lost child. But whatever the day is to us, it normally comes with some token, a thought, of appreciation.

In recent years there's been a new trend, and we've seen it pop up a few times this year already: Charity Gifts. Rather than giving flowers that die, or chocolates that will make us moan about our thighs for the rest of the week, we could be the recipients of a donation in our name to someone else.

For example, your children could give you measles vaccines to protect 50 childrenwith UNICEF, or four trees planted in your name* with Save the Children, or even a promise of a safe labour and delivery for an underprivildged mum with Maternity WorldwideIf you prefer charity to start at home, Great Ormond Street hospital will let you buy a parent of a sick child a night's accommodation (£50), or baby ventilation (£100)  or therapy tools for an abused child with the NSPC.

There does seem to be divided opinion on the internet, however, about these gifts, with some saying they'd be gutted to receive one of these items as a gift, others saying they'd rather have chocolate and flowers, and others still saying they think it's a brilliant idea - who needs another "Best mum in the world" mug anyway?

So what do you think? Would you think it a thoughtful gift, or would you be disappointed to receive this with or in stead of your flowers?

HEADS UP: Disney Duvet Cover Sets (incl Frozen) £9.99 from 5th March @ Aldi

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 3:57 pm

HEADS UP: Disney Duvet Cover Sets (incl Frozen) £9.99 from 5th March @ Aldi

The bargains are a bit random at Aldi next week, and in amongst the orbital sanders and crock pots are these Disney Single Duvet Cover Sets. There are six different Disney designs for £9.99 each, in stores from next Thursday 5th March.

The designs you can get are Frozen, Minnie Mouse, Disney Princess, Cars, Planes and Spiderman. That's a good enough range to please most kids, and for a Frozen set especially that is extremely good value.

Online there is no more information about the materials in the duvet covers, so we can't tell you whether they are cotton, polyester or a mix, so we will have to wait and see when they arrive in stores. They are made to fit a standard single duvet, and contain the cover and a matching pillowcase.

Aldi deals are in stores only, but you can click on the link above for information before you make a trip to store.

 

Babydan Gate-To-Go Travel Safety Gate £14.99 Was £29.99

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 3:26 pm

Babydan Gate-To-Go Travel Safety Gate £14.99 Was £29.99

Ah, baby gates. You pretty much can't live without them once your baby is on the move, but they're rarely a bargain buy. Until now - this pink BabyDan Gate-to-Go is half price at Babies R Us right now, reduced from £29.99 to £14.99. That's a particularly lovely deal if you need two - one for the top of the stairs and one for the bottom - as you're effectively getting two stair gates for the price of one.

My heart always sinks when it's baby gate time because it always means drills and DIY which generally ends in arguments. But maybe that's just our house. But this is a pressure mounted stair gate which means it should be easy to assemble without any need for power tools OR DIY-related rows. That means it's particularly handy for when you're away from home and can't exactly start drilling into the property.

It's fabric-covered, which is also great if you've got a little one who delights in banging their heads on walls when they're in a strop (yes, I've got one of those) and the double-locking feature adds extra peace of mind, too.

This stair-gate comes in a storage bag and it's apparently lightweight and portable, all of which makes it a great travel option.

Home delivery costs £4.95 or you can order one online using the link above, and opt to collect it in-store at no additional charge.

Marvel Watch £2.40 (Was £6) @ House of Fraser

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 3:07 pm

Marvel Watch £2.40 (Was £6) @ House of Fraser

If it's time (see what I did there?) to invest in a watch for a little someone, then check out this Marvel watch at House of Fraser - the price has been dropped from £6 to just £2.40 right now.

I know, I know, kids don't *really* need watches, but when my kids started learning how to tell the time at school, we found that having a watch of their own really helped. Obviously this is a digital watch so it won't help with the old o'clock skills but it's equally important that kids get to grips with digital time-telling, and having an actual watch can help make sense of the whole learning process.

This electronic watch is suitable for kids aged from three years old. It has an easy-to-read LCD display, and both the watch strap and the clock face feature characters from the Marvel Avengers movies, so it'll be an instant hit with anyone who's into Marvel superheroes. You will need one LR41 battery but according to the product description, this is included. The strap is also adjustable.

It'll cost you a further £3 to have this delivered BUT if you order one online using the link above and opt to collect it in-store, you won't pay an extra penny over the £2.40 price tag.

With thanks to BuzzDuraband @HUKD.

Marian-Plast Lilliput Dream House £39.99 @ Home Bargains

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 2:47 pm

Marian-Plast Lilliput Dream House £39.99 @ Home Bargains

Is spring coming yet? Well it's March tomorrow so my calendar says it must be on it's way. Home Bargains have started selling all their garden toys and amongst them is this really cute Marian-Plast Liliput Dream House. The RRP is £89.99, it's selling elsewhere at £80, and Home Bargains are charging £39.99.

It may not be massive, but most garden playhouses aren't unless you want to spend a small fortune, and this looks plenty sturdy enough for little people to play in. It's made of brightly coloured plastic, the door and windows open, and it's easy to build and clean.

Oddly, although you can order this play house online it's not available for home delivery, but only for free store collection, so unless you have a store near you then you may have to re-think. You can get it delivered from Very or Woolworths, but it'll cost £80 plus P&P!

Although the houses are all the same style the colours of the panels may vary from the ones shown in the picture, but as this isn't exactly a realistic depiction of a regular house I don't suppose that will matter too much to the kids.

Disney Frozen Top & Leggings Set £6 @ Asda George

by karenm in Deals on 28 February, 2015 at 1:00 pm

Disney Frozen Top & Leggings Set £6 @ Asda George

This one is sold out in a few sizes BUT is still available in 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 (also 9-12 months) so I thought it was worth a mention as there’s lots of little Frozen fans that age.

I love the detailing on this set particularly on the leggings, such a lovely picture of Anna and Elsa together! It may have long sleeves but bearing in mind most of us are in the UK, plenty of wear to be had yet this year I’d imagine or you could buy it now in a larger size for Autumn/Winter.

This Frozen top is reduced to £3* now too and available in more sizes, up to 9 years available on this one.

If you have a Frozen fan have you checked out the new Frozen Fever range at the Disney Store yet*?

It's a real impressive bit of kit especially for £15. With an alarm, stop watch, timer, your child can use it as a watch too, and can choose from analogue or digital time display. There's three fun games to play too and it has the ability to record your voice as well as change it.
