Minnie Mouse Nightdress & Ears £4.99 @ Argos

Minnie Mouse Nightdress & Ears £4.99 @ Argos

The Minnie Mouse nightdress and ears are SO cute! I have no-one to buy one for, all boys in my family. Look at it! It's an absolute bargain as well, at £4.99. Argos were selling it £9.99, then £7.49 before reducing it further. I reckon it's worth the £9.99, because you get the nightdress and the Minnie Mouse ears hairband.

The Minnie Mouse nightdress is available in sizes 2-3, 4-5, 6-7 and 8-9 years old. I checked thoroughly, that there's plenty of stock in Argos' across the UK.

Both the nightdress and the hairband are made from 100% polyester, meaning they are fine to machine wash at forty degrees. At first glance, I thought the nightie was plain red, but on closer inspection, it's actually a polka dot pattern. The sleeves are frilly and the skirt is too.

Reserve and collect the Minnie Mouse Nightdress & Ears from your local Argos for FREE, or pay £3.95 for delivery.

Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Manual Breast Pump £14.99 (Was £29.99) @ Amazon

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 1 October, 2014 at 12:00 pm

Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Manual Breast Pump £14.99 (Was £29.99) @ Amazon

If you're expecting a baby sometime soon or indeed have a recent new addition to the family and are in need of a breast pump, then move quicketty-quick over to Amazon, where the Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Manual Breast Pump is on special offer, reduced from £29.99 to £14.99.

This manual breast pump comes complete with a 150ml Tommee Tippee Easi-vent bottle, one milk storage pot, six disposable breast pads and one microwave steriliser box.

Breast pumps are such a personal item that it's really difficult to determine what makes one better than any other, but I've tried this one and found it very good. I particularly like that you can express straight into the storage pot without having to faff about pouring what you've expressed into some other sterile container, and I love that it comes with a bottle, breast pads and the steriliser. All in all I think this is a great little bargain, and definitely worth a punt if you're thinking of trying expressing.

Delivery will be free, too, as is always the case when you spend more than £10 at Amazon.

Doc McStuffins Big Book Of Boo Boos £4.61 @ Amazon

This Doc McStuffins Big Book of Boo Boos retails for £6 at Disney Store, £7 at House of Fraser and £5.99 at Argos. Safe to say Amazon wins on this, as it's only £4.61. If you have a little Doc McStuffins fanatic to buy for at Christmas then it's doubtful you would go wrong with this toy.

What is the Doc McStuffins Big Book of Boo Boos? Quite simply, a spiral hard cover notebook, with wipe clean pages, notebook paper, two dry erase crayons and a shiny sticker sheet. Sounds like great fun for those miserable wintry days. This is fine for any Doc M fans of three years or over.

Use the stickers included to customise the book of boo boos. It doesn't matter how much scribbling goes on, as it can be wiped away to be scribbled on again.

This Doc McStuffins Big Book of Boo Boos is below Amazon's £10 threshold for FREE Super Saver delivery, so add this to anything else you are needing. How about this Doc McStuffins backpack*, just £5.75?

If you are in the market for a digital baby monitor, then I reckon it'll take some doing to get one brand new for this great price.

It comes with a travel bag and a belt clip for easy transport.

You get a parent unit, which you keep at your side, and a baby unit, that will be placed in your baby's nursery. They both come with a mains adaptor and the prent unit requires AA batteries too.

The BT digital baby monitor 250 features temperature alerts and a colour coded night light as well as a crying alert, baby feed timer, find feature, a belt clip and travel bag.

Fireman Sam Drive & Steer Jupiter £17.32 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 1 October, 2014 at 9:19 am

Fireman Sam Drive & Steer Jupiter £17.32 Delivered @ Amazon

Oh how I love a man in uniform! Fireman Sam has been my favourite for a long time. He is still very popular, and hasn't aged at all. Amazon have the Fireman Sam Drive & Steer Jupiter for only £17.32, and that includes FREE Super Saver delivery. This sells for £24.99 at Toys R Us and £22.49 at Argos.

The Fireman Sam Drive & Steer Jupiter is a remote controlled toy with a difference. The remote is a steering wheel and can be turned to direct Jupiter around obstacles, like furniture, your feet, and so on. If you child decides there's an emergency then they just need to press the turbo charge button and zooooooooom, off it goes.

Jupiter sounds out the Fireman Sam theme tune and phrases as he screeches around your entire house. If this gets on your wick, then simply press the mute button. Why can't every noisy toy have this function?

With the steering wheel controller, you can direct Jupiter, forwards, backwards, any direction at turbo speed and you can sound the siren. I wouldn't worry about the turbo speed, as I can't imagine it being mega fast considering it's suitable for children aged three and above.

We had it for £40 a while back, and you can still use the Mothercare App for £10 off a £50 spend, so ideally, buy something else for £12.50 or more, and use the app to get £10 off, and you have two gifts for £40 - maybe some play food?

Disney Frozen Musical Wand £10 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 30 September, 2014 at 9:00 pm

Disney Frozen Musical Wand £10 @ AmazonAmazon are selling the Disney Frozen Musical Wand for £10, which is conveniently the cut off for free delivery, so a winner all round. You can find this wand elsewhere on the web for upwards of £12, excluding delivery, so we think it's a pretty good deal!

This beautiful blue wand features an Elsa figurine inside of a mini snow globe. Simply give it a shake to watch the snow swirl round the Frozen Princess. The wand also has a button to press and play the hit song ' Let it Go'.

Apparently it's music only, not the actual song, and no, it's not the full musical score, which some people have moaned about, but I'm sure by now, almost a year into the Frozen frenzy, that's not an altogether bad thing!

The snowglobe is plastic, not glass, but it's apparently very good quality, so much so it looks like glass. It also comes with 3 LR44 batteries included.

Disney Frozen fans aged three and up will love Elsa's Wand.

Sex Education: Is Eight Years Old Too Young?

by Nada in Features on 30 September, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Sex Education: Is Eight Years Old Too Young?

My eldest son is eight years old, and he brought me home a lovely booklet. What was it about? Sex, that's right S.E.X. Just to clarify, he is in primary 5 at school, this is when sex education is introduced to them. To say it took me by surprise, is the understatement of the year. But the biggest shock wasn't until I read the booklet that had been handed to my little boy.

As I sifted through the pages, my mouth gaped open. The booklet is about opening up about sex and close relationships. To me that's fine but do they really need to know that at such a tender age?

My other half and I had a bit of a debate about this hot topic, and here's how it went:

Mrs No: I don't see the need for an eight year old being handed a booklet about sex. Why must they be taught adult issues when they are so young?

Mr Yes: I think in this day and age, children should be educated at a young age, about the dangers and what sex entails.

Mrs No: But, why do they need to know when I don't wish for my child to be sexually active until he is at least 16 years old.

Mr Yes: Due to recent events, involving many older celebrities, I feel it is vital now, more than ever, to educate our children about anything involving sex.

Mrs No: I don't want our son to learn about abortion or masturbation, so young. By teaching about sex, you are opening a can of worms and these topics must be taught too, for a fully comprehensive idea of what sex is. Is an eight year old mature enough to cope with that information?

Mr Yes: Regardless of whether they are mature enough or not, it is our duty as parents to safely educate our children as it is so easy for them to be exposed to such matters, due to the growing number of young children who are online these days.

Mrs No: In our day, we got the period and wet dream talk in P7. Why on earth does it have to be more detailed than that at this age?

Mr Yes: When we were younger, it was not as socially acceptable to talk about sex and issues that surround, for example abortion. All you have to do is switch on the television and watch any modern day soap. These issues are shown in abundance. We don't want our children getting a warped sense of what sex is or the issues around it.

Here at PlayPennies, we would love to hear your views on this touchy topic. At what age do you believe is right, to teach about the birds and the bees? How much should we tell our kids? Join us on Twitter @PlayPennies or on Facebook here

Sleep Body Pillow £11.99 (Was £13.89) @ Argos

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 30 September, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Sleep Body Pillow £11.99 (Was £13.89) @ Argos

Ok so this picture is a little weird - but trust me, the Sleep Body Pillow is a thing you truly need if you're pregnant. And this one is just £11.99 at Argos right now. I loved mine so much when I was expecting my third baby that I literally used to spend all day dreaming about bedtime just so that I could finally snuggle up with my gigantic squiggly pillow. It really was *that* comfy, and my third pregnancy was *that* tough.

Anyway, these things sell for crazy prices elsewhere online and in overpriced baby boutiques, but the basic one I bought from Argos was utterly brilliant, and has more than stood the test of time in our house. I used it as a breastfeeding support cushion after my baby was born, and even as an extra comfy place to prop her now and again when she was a tiny thing that didn't really move when you placed her down in a cosy spot. (Oh, how I miss those days.) One of my older kids currently insists on cuddling up to it at night, too.

Out of 350 customers, a whopping 311 have rated this pillow 4 or 5 stars out of a possible total of 5 stars. That's pretty impressive. Listen to this:

"Since buying this I've had a great night's sleep, before I was using an ordinary pillow and it just wasn't doing the job of keeping me and my bump comfy at night. I read the reviews of this and the more expensive ones and I'm glad I went with this one - great job!"

Delivery is £3.95 or you can reserve one online and opt to collect it in person at a branch of your choice, which is free.

Celebaby: Holly Willoughby Has Given Birth To A Baby Boy

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Celebaby on 30 September, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Celebaby: Holly Willoughby Has Given Birth To A Baby Boy

Awwwwww, Holly Willoughby is a mum again!

The This Morning and Celebrity Juice presenter did what any self-respecting celeb does these days when they have an announcement to make - she took to Twitter to share her happy news with her fans and followers.

Holly tweeted:

"I'm sooo happy to tell you all - we've just had a baby boy! Chester William Baldwin made a grand entrance at 8lbs 12. He's just perfect. X"

And mere hours later Holly was gearing up to 'have a little chat' live on This Morning with Philip Schofield and Amanda Holden.

The Daily Mail reports:

"Holly Willoughby has given birth to a baby boy. The This Morning presenter, 33, and her husband Daniel Baldwin welcomed their third child into the world on Monday and have named him Chester William."

Twitter has been awash with celebs rushing to congratulate Holly and Daniel ever since Holly broke the baby news. But, alas, not everyone in celebville has got something good to say on the subject.

Somewhat predictably, Katie Hopkins has had a pop at the proud new parents over their choice of name but thus far Holly has kept a dignified silence. Good on you, Holly.

And, for what it's worth, we reckon Chester is a lovely name.
