Baby Born Comfort Seat £1.99 @ Smyths

Baby Born Comfort Seat £1.99 @ Smyths

You have a tot with the Baby Born doll? Well Smyths has dropped the price on the Baby Born Comfort Seat from £19.99 to £1.99 and no, that’s not a typo. £18 off and a massive saving. You can click and collect instore or buy online and pay a spot of delivery charges.

This Baby Born toy is all about keeping baby safe and cosy in her chair while your tots travel about. It comes with a new fabric design and what looks like a toy hanging from the handle. The doll is not, obviously, included but for under £2 that’s really not a problem.

You can find the actual doll reduced at Smyths too with the boy and girl down from £39.99 to £33.49, but that’s not an epic discount and you could get them elsewhere for less. Other items have had a bit shaved off the price here and there, but none are as epic as this saving at all.

Traditional Wooden Dolls House £20 @ ASDA Direct

by Tamsin Oxford in Deals on 25 April, 2014 at 7:28 am

Traditional Wooden Dolls House £20 @ ASDA Direct

This is such a cute little gem of a deal from ASDA Direct. They have taken £15 off the price on their traditional wooden doll’s house from £35 to £20 which is a saving of £15. Cute!

This wooden doll house needs to be built by you and I can promise you that there will be a little bit of swearing and thumb sucking. I got a similar one a while ago and it took ages to make, although once it is made it stands well and looks awesome. My one didn’t have the cute shutters though, they are just adorable.

This doll house has three stories and children can get in through the second storey level and through the roof so they can play with their toys inside. It doesn’t come with anything more than the house and the shell though, no toys or furniture is included in there so you will need to buy those separately.

Speedo Bobble Floatsuit £5.99 Delivered @ Amazon

Speedo Bobble Floatsuit £5.99 Delivered @ Amazon

I know we're all looking forward to summer and getting the wardrobes ready for those first really hot days, right? Well, you might want to include these in your summer swimming plans! Amazon are offering the Speedo Bobble Floatsuits for £5.99, including delivery - no minimum spend here.

These Floatsuits are available only in pink and only in sizes 4 t0 5 and 5 to 6, despite the suggestion of them being for babies, what with the word 'Infant' in the Amazon title and all. These are perhaps the only sizes remaining, and at the price, I'm not all that surprised.

The Bobble Floatsuits are made from polyester, so should be pretty quick drying. They offer sun protection and come with the foam inserts for floatation too. They meet all the required European safety standards too.

The benefit of having the foam around the body is that a child can learn to swim using all the strokes without being impeded by the arm bands - but that said, parental supervision is still required at all times.

Blooming Gorgeous Changing Bag £39.50 @ Pink Lining

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 9:35 pm

 

Blooming Gorgeous Changing Bag £39.50 @ Pink LiningWe know you love 'em so here is a lovely Blooming Gorgeous changing bag from Pink Lining for you, reduced from £79 to just £39.50, saving you the same again. Not too shabby. Delivery is free on orders over £50, so we miss out on that, making it cost you £44.45.

"A vintage inspired shape is the Blooming Gorgeous bag with a beautiful daffodil applique on the outside front pocket", says the blurb, and yes, that's pretty much what it looks like. 

This bag features the Cream Bows on Peppermint print and is slightly wider than their other bag styles, so you have more room for all your baby bits and bobs.

On the outside you'll find a large canvas pocket and two fabric side pockets.

 The bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap that is long enough to fit over handle bars. There are two insulated bottle holders, two nappy pockets, a pen holder, a key fob - heaven knows how many times I've lost my keys inside my handbag! - a small zip pocket, a padded changing mat and and a wet zip bag.

All in all, you get pretty much your complete baby changing bag, just needing a few more bits to fill it.

Mr Potato Head Fun Tub £6.99 Delivered @ Amazon / A1 Toys

by Tamsin Oxford in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 7:45 pm

Mr Potato Head Fun Tub £6.99 Delivered @ Amazon / A1 Toys

This is a very good deal, especially since Amazon are a lot more expensive and don’t offer free delivery. Note, this is a deal that’s coming in from a supplier and not fulfilled by Amazon directly, but they do have great reviews and delivery is free!

UPDATE: To access the offer you need to click on the link to the Amazon page and then on the link saying 23 new from £6.99 underneath the product description and next to the image. You'll find this offer there.

So, what is this crazy fun tub all about, I hear you ask? Well, this is from Toy Story (obviously) and the fun lies in the way you can do all sorts of hilarious things to Mr Potato Head such as put things in the back of his potato. Har har har. Just like in the movie.

The Tater Tub comes with a Mr Potato Head potato body, lots of funny faces with more than 15 pieces and it all stores brilliantly within that one simple tub. It’s awesome and the parts are compatible with other Mr Potato Head and Mrs Potato Head toys.

Cath Kidston Rose Brush Set £12.50 @ John Lewis

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 5:39 pm

Cath Kidston Rose Brush Set £12.50 @ John LewisJohn Lewis have a little gem in their clearance section in the form of this Cath Kidston Rose Brush Set, reduced from £25 to £12.50. Standard delivery is £3.50 for orders under £50, or click and collect from your local John Lewis is free of charge. The set is currently £25 on the Cath Kidson website, and the Jarrold website has it for £23 including delivery. 

This offer from John Lewis is for a popper-fastened case from Cath Kidston, with a distinctive rose print.

The set comes with 7 different sizes of brush included, and the wrap around purse idea is a handy way of stopping your brushes from cluttering up your bag. The natural bristle brushes have wooden handles, and there is an internal zip  pocket, with popper fastening to keep it all together.

The bag is made from PVC coated cotton, making it easy to wipe clean and wash should there be any handbag related mishaps or powder openings in your bag. 

My handbag tends to look like a mix between a recycle bin and the underside of a closet, so to have a way of keeping things together sounds pretty ideal to me.

Star Wars Yoda Carry Case £3.90 Add-On @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 4:19 pm

Star Wars Yoda Carry Case £3.90 Add-On @ AmazonAmazon have reduced a Star Wars Yoda carry case from £12.99 to £3.90. This drops it below the free delivery price and makes it an add on item. If you buy 3 of these - say for gifts or matching bags or whatever - you're still paying less than you would have ordinarily at the full RRP for one. Tesco currently has it for £14.48 including delivery, for one, so it strikes me as a great deal.

I don't know what's happen in the world of IT guys and young people anymore, if I'm honest, but I know that just a few years ago my crowd of friends would have love love loved this bag. Adults or not.

And to be fair, they probably still would - I'm just not in the same crowd of friends anymore!

The Yoda Carry case would make a great toy box for on the go this summer, or a fab lunch bag by the size of it. Apparently it's suitable for displaying action figures, since the inner 'shelf' divides into compartments. Either way, it has a an easy to wipe down surface for spills and has a convenient carry handle.

I think it's a brilliant carry bag!

Disney Mickey Comic Strip Donald Duck Cushion £2.91@ Amazon

by Tamsin Oxford in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 11:30 am

Disney Mickey Comic Strip Donald Duck Cushion £2.91@ Amazon

So now, if you go out and buy the awesome MAM anti-colic set from Amazon for only £15, then you can add on this Disney Donald Duck cushion that has been reduced from £15 to £2.91 and get them all delivered together for free. Otherwise you have to stock up your basket to the tune of £10 for free delivery on this epic bargain.

So this is part of their Add-on programme – the title makes me laugh – and you need to spend £10 to get it free. You can add it now and wait until you have a qualifying basket, but then this price will disappear. It’s a good buy for gifts or adding into the Present Cupboard really.

The pillow is embellished with Donald Duck and his cute little swear word exclamations, is 35x35cm and is washable. I have it on good authority that it isn’t worth the £15 price tag so this is a good price and the right price.

UPDATE! You can also get Pooh's Head Shaped Cushion for £4.62 instead of £16!

MAM Anti-Colic Bottle Starter Set £15.99 @ Argos & Amazon

OK so this morning Argos dropped the price on the MAM Anti-Colic set from their assessed retail price of £29.99 to £15.99 which is a saving of £14 and you get free delivery. Now Amazon have reduced the MAN Anti-Colic Self-Sterilising Bottle Starter Set from their assessed price of £47.71 to £15.99 and this also comes with free delivery.

Click here to get anti-colic self-sterilising with Argos*

The Amazon kit comes with 15 bottles and includes three different sizes along with teats, soft spouts, sealing discs, handles and a soother and they can all be stuck in the microwave for three minutes to sterilise them.

The Argos kit is… exactly the same! SO you can nab yourself either one of these offers if you are in the market for a bottle kit that grows with your baby and has everything you need to get started. Hopefully if the one runs out or expires, the other will still be live for you to enjoy.

Celebaby: Drew Barrymore's Baby Girl Has Arrived

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Celebaby on 24 April, 2014 at 10:00 am

Celebaby: Drew Barrymore's Baby Girl Has Arrived

Drew Barrymore has given birth to a baby girl.

The actress already has a daughter with her husband Will Kopelman, so we bet that 1 year old Olive is delighted to be a big sister.

The couple eschewed the celeb tradition of announcing their baby news via social networking sites, and instead opted to go the old-fashioned route and release a statement via their 'people'.

They've gone public with the baby's name, too, which we love.

Cosmopolitan magazine reports:

"We and the rest of the world are sending congratulations to Drew Barrymore, who gave birth to baby number two with husband Will Kopelman yesterday. The Charlie's Angels actress announced the birth of a baby girl, named Frankie, last night in a statement from the couple's representatives."

"“Today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the statement reads. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”"

Drew is a keen Instagram user but at the time of writing this, she has yet to tweet or publish any pics of the newest addition to her family.

Congrats to the Barrymore Kopelman family!

Pourty Potty £5.10 @John Lewis

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 24 April, 2014 at 9:47 am

Pourty Potty £5.10 @John LewisIf you've got a baby or toddler in nappies or are in the throes of plotting potty training right now, you need to check out the Pourty Potty, and right now it's down to just £5.10 at John Lewis. Elsewhere online it's almost twice that price, so grab this while you can.

What's so special about it? Well, look away now if you're squeamish. But if you've ever tried to pour the contents of a potty down the loo, you'll know that it's the sort of thankless task that requires rubber gloves and industrial quantities of bleach, plus a strong stomach.

The Pourty Potty eliminates all that. Its clever design allows you to pour the potty contents out the back of the potty, with no messy dribbles or spills to clear up afterwards. The lip of the pouring duct is specially designed to reduce unhygienic drips, according to the item description at John Lewis. And it also has a convenient handle at the front that makes it easy to hold and pour.

As well as all that it's also comfy and supportive for little ones, with an ergonomic seating area and two back rests, plus a higher than usual splash guard to prevent spillages. It's also designed so that it won't tip over.

I am SO glad I discovered this before we embark on the potty training adventure. And at this price I think I'll invest in a spare one to leave at Granny's, too!

UK standard delivery is £3.00 from John Lewis so even if you pay for delivery you'll still get this cheaper than if you buy elsewhere online with free delivery. Alternatively, the John Lewis Click & Collect service is totally free of charge.

10 Kids Books for £10 delivered @ The Works

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 23 April, 2014 at 8:15 pm

10 Kids Books for £10 delivered @ The Works

 

The Works are running a promo at the minute where you can get 10 kids books for £10. Delivery is free using the code DELTEN.

I love it when The Works run this promotion and tend to stock up. My daughter is an avid reader but they’re also great to have to hand to add to birthday gifts. My friend actually uses these instead of party bags, she feels it’s much better value at £1 per child and I tend to agree. Less hassle to organise and the kids get something decent too, all too often party bag contents are binned soon after arriving home.  You could even order ten of the same title I guess, if you thought there may be arguments.

Including activity books, learning and picture books and bedtime stories, there’s over 400 to choose from. Some I particularly liked were the baby soft “Cuddly Cuffs” buggy books, “Disney Junior Colouring and Activity Sticker Set” and the Oxford Reading Tree Range, is in there too-Chip and Kipper really are everywhere it would seem!

Some of the RRP’s are as high as £6.99 per book and while these may be a little inflated, I really do think this is great value. £1 per book and the free delivery is an added bonus. Most little ones love new books too, well any books really but new ones are always exciting!

Kiddicare Polka Party Baby Walker £14.99 Was £27 @Kiddicare

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 23 April, 2014 at 4:32 pm

Kiddicare Polka Party Baby Walker £14.99 Was £27 @Kiddicare

There's a cracking £12 discount off the Polka Party Baby Walker over at Kiddicare right now. It's reduced from £27 to just £14.99.

This baby walker is suitable for use from 6 months until whenever your little one is able to walk unaided. It has three height adjustment settings so you can adapt it as your baby grows, and it has a deep, padded seat for extra back support.

There are also toys attached to the tray but these can be easily removed so the tray can be used for activities or snacks. It also has a stop 'n' go base for extra safety.

This particular baby walker has been rated 4.5 out of a possible 5 stars by Kiddicare customers, and here's a fairly standard review to give you an idea of what people who have purchased it have to say about it:

"Great for when looking after my 8 month old nephew. He wants on his feet all the time rather than learn to crawl so this is excellent for when he wants to be on the move because I know he's safe and happy. He is fascinated by the toys attached to the table (detachable for cleaning or for when using for feeding.) so this helps keeping him amused. It's easy assembled and the height can be adjusted. Excellent price for this product!"

Spend over £29.99 and you'll also get FREE delivery to mainland UK. Spend less than that, and a £4.95 delivery charge will be added at checkout to cover the shipping of your goods.

Nerf Ultimate Spider-Man Spider Strike Cross Bow £4.99 Was £9.99 @Smyths Toys

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Deals on 23 April, 2014 at 2:32 pm

Nerf Ultimate Spider-Man Spider Strike Cross Bow £4.99 Was £9.99 @Smyths ToysTrust me when I say that you do not want to miss this deal if you're the parent of a small fan of Spiderman. This Nerf Ultimate Spiderman Spider Strike Crossbow is reduced from £9.99 to just £4.99 at Smyths Toys right now.

I have sons who are Nerf Gun crazy right now, and they would be beside themselves with glee if I splashed out on one of these beauties.

I'm one of *those* parents who doesn't actively encourage my kids to play with guns, but somehow I've been persuaded that Nerf guns don't count. Which is how I've discovered that it can be ridiculously good fun to turn the Nerf gun on the kids from time to time...

Anyway, moving swiftly on... the Spider Strike Crossbow fires web darts at distances of up to 20 feet. You simply pull back as far as you can for a long shot, and then fire your dart at evil! Apparently no villain can stand against the web-powered accuracy of the Spider Strike Crossbow. Three web darts are included, and you can store them in the crossbow, which is pretty awesome because I am beyond bored of listening to 'Mu-um, we've lost all the bullets again!'

You'll get free shipping if you spend £39 or more. Otherwise standard shipping is £2.99, or you could use the free collect in store service once you've checked the stock levels.

Melissa & Doug Wooden Abacus £6 @ Amazon

by Tamsin Oxford in Deals on 23 April, 2014 at 1:31 pm

Melissa & Doug Wooden Abacus £6 @ Amazon

The Melissa & Doug Wooden Abacus usually sells for around £11.99, but Amazon has dropped it to £6 and it comes with free delivery if you add other items and pull the price up to £10. This is a superb buy and really I do recommend it as my daughter still has hers and uses it often.

This is a brilliant way to get your kids started on maths and learning about addition and subtraction basics. It’s the first ever wooden calculator I reckon and helps cover the teaching of maths skills, patterning and even colour recognition. The child slides the beads and counts them to work out simple sums you can set them.

This Melissa & Doug variant is hand crafted from wood and uses non-toxic paints and finishes. You are saving 50% off the usual price and a tasty £5.99 (so 1p short of a proper 50% off there). Nice.

Funkybox Review

by Lynley Oram in Reviews on 23 April, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Funkybox ReviewI am part the way sold on an item that is called Funkybox just on the name alone. However, this wee box isn't quite what you might imagine. If you're expecting something with sounds then you are out of luck! The Funkybox is a baby wipes dispenser, designed for use with most packet sizes. You can get this box in two sizes, normal and travel size - the Funkybox ToGo. The box comes in a wide variety of designs, and we looked at the latest addition to the Funkybox family, the Union Jack box. Which is rather in tune with today as it is St George's Day here in England.

SnoozeShade Original Ex-Display £9.99 @ Snoozeshade

SnoozeShade Original Ex-Display £9.99 @ Snoozeshade

SnoozeShades are pretty cool and a lot of parents I know really rely on them. Usually these retail for around £19.99 at the official site and you can probably get them for less on eBay or Amazon or Tesco, but rarely for as low as this. These are old models and ex-display but they are only £9.99.

They are normal products that have a label on them that reads “Display” for sending out to retailers et al to put on display. These ones were not sent out and are now old stock so instead of bunging them in the bin, they’ve cut off the label and they’re selling it for half price.

You may find some red threads where the label sat or the label may still be on it, and they don’t have as long a zip as the newer models. They have no sleeping baby emblem on the front and they are the Original Classic version.

Monsters University Roll A Scare Playset £14.49 Delivered @ Argos

by Tamsin Oxford in Deals on 23 April, 2014 at 6:51 am

Monsters University Roll A Scare Playset £14.49 Delivered @ Argos

Argos has dropped the price on this cute Monsters University Roll a Scare playset from £22.99 to £14.49 and it comes with that very rare and wonderful thing – Argos free delivery.

I am always bemused by the Argos free delivery thing. You never know which items they’re going to put it on and sometimes it’s the most random items. This match of a 1/3 off discount on a very popular toy (and it is an online exclusive) with free delivery makes this a pretty big saving and it is only available for Home Delivery, you cannot click and collect instore.

The game lets kids race with their friends to win the Scare Games with the characters from the movie. Each character is in the shape of a little character ball and get flung out of a sort of cannon thing at the top. It comes with one exclusive Sulley character, two activation points and a monsterised finish line.
