Little Tikes Cookin Creations Toy Kitchen £125 Delivered (Was £170)

This Little Tikes Cookin' Creations Home Kitchen is on special offer right now at Very, reduced from £170 to £125 - and this weekend there's free delivery, too.

That's £45 off the original price, plus you get loads thrown in with this cute kitchen. There's a sink, oven plus hob, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge with ice dispenser, microwave, clock, and loads of storage - which is a must for any decent kitchen. It also comes with metal pots and pans, by the looks of things.

(Although the cupboards in my daughter's toy kitchen is where I find all manner of missing household detritus, including her bibs and the TV remote control, so keep that in mind if you do buy this and things start to go missing...)

I'm a huge fan of wooden toys - if I have to have them cluttering up my living room then I prefer them to at least be lovely to look at, and I'm totally snapping up one of these for a little someone's Christmas pressie. At this rate I'll have all my shopping done and dusted by July!

To get free standard next day delivery this weekend, enter the code 6CTCR at the basket checkout stage.

 

Chad Valley Children's Table, Chairs & Parasol Set £19.99 @ Argos

Chad Valley Children's Table, Chairs & Parasol Set £19.99 @ Argos

The Chad Valley Children's Table, Chairs and Parasol Set is reduced to just £19.99. It's a bit more usable than the Picnic Bench we posted earlier today. The chairs can be used independently from the table. Even indoors if you like. It was originally £30.49 so I would expect good quality.

The Chad Valley Children's Table, Chairs and Parasol Set has a four star rating on the Argos site. It's bright and colourful and I would imagine very appealing to little ones.

It's ideal for alfresco dining, that's BBQ's, picnics and generally eating outside to me and you. It can be used to messy activities like playing with Play-Doh or arts and crafts.

The table stands at 38 centimetres high which makes it fine for little folk to sit at. My eldest two had a set like this when they were little and they just adored it. I would make them a little packed lunch each and they would sit in the garden.

You can reserve and collect the Chad Valley Children's Table, Chairs and Parasol Set for FREE from Argos. If you want it delivered to your front door then it costs £3.95.

Disney Frozen Children's Swim Arm Bands £3.95 Delivered (Was £6.99)

Disney Frozen Children's Swim Arm Bands £3.95 Delivered (Was £6.99)

Off to the pool over the weekend? If you've got a keen swimmer on your hands who loves all-things-Elsa-and-Anna, then check out these Disney Frozen children's armbands, down from £6.99 to £3.95 with free delivery from Amazon.

There aren't any reviews of these on Amazon's site at the moment, so I can't tell you a whole lot about what people think of them, but it's definitely worth noting that they are not suitable for children aged under three years, and should be used under adult supervision.

For the full Frozen look and added buoyancy to boot, check out the Disney Frozen swim ring which is also down from £6.99 to £3.45, also with free delivery.

Just the ticket if you're planning a summer holiday with plenty of time in the pool.

Just don't ever let your kid try putting their arm bands on their ankles. My husband did that once when he was a kid, and almost never lived to tell the tale...

Casdon Henry/Hetty Cleaning Trolley £10.39/£9.99 @ Amazon

The Casdon Henry/Hetty Cleaning Trolleys proved popular the last time we shared them with you. Just now, if you go over to Amazon you will see that the Henry Cleaning Trolley is only £10.39 with FREE delivery included and the Hetty one is just £9.99. In order to get FREE delivery on Hetty, you will need to spend 1p or more.

The Casdon Henry/Hetty Cleaning Trolleys contain the same items, except the Henry is red and the Hetty set is pink. As well as the cleaning trolley a Henry Branded Mop with cloth, a broom, a brush, a dust pan, a bottle and a waste bag.

I am a fan of these. We seem to have role play toys of all the "nice" things so why not teach the kids how to clean. It's such an important life skill and with this it is made fun for a little one.

Just think every time you go to do your cleaning, you will have someone carting about after you with their Henry or Hetty Cleaning Trolley. It's nice to get help, right?

Kids Garden Bench & Parasol Set £24.99 @ Dunelm Mill

Kids Garden Bench & Parasol Set £24.99 @ Dunelm Mill

The weather is definitely getting better, and when it gets to this time of year all I want to do is eat outside. Picnics are great fun and kids just love them. You don't always have to go faraway to have one either. Why not use your back garden? This Kids Garden Bench and Parasol is bright and colourful and ideal for little ones to eat at. Get it for just £24.99 at Dunelm Mill.

The Kids Garden Bench and Parasol Set two fixed benches, a table, and an adjustable parasol. I like that it comes with a polyester parasol, as it's a bit of shade for little people on a hot day.

It's not just for eating at either. Pop the kids outside with some paper and paint, Play-Doh or even that hideously messy Moon Sand stuff. You would care whether they get it everywhere or not when they are outside.

This set does require self assembly but by the looks of it, it doesn't look too heavy going.

You can Click and Collect the Kids Garden Bench and Parasol Set only, which is FREE and can be done at your convenience.

A Gold Cot Fit For A Prince (Or A Princess)

A Gold Cot Fit For A Prince (Or A Princess)

Kate Middleton is soon to birth her second Royal Baby. We don't know the sex of the baby, but one things for sure it'll want for nothing whether it comes out a Prince or a Princess. The Duchess of Cambridge is very down to earth but we can't help but wonder whether they have any extravagances like this Bela Luxury Cot*. Perhaps, they will receive one from a wealthy relative but if we want one it would set us back £34,860.00.

Okay, so I am guessing that 99.9% of us don't have a spare £35k lying about to spend on a cot and those of us that do would we spend it on something so excessive?

I do think it's very regal and cool though with it's gold colour. For those of you who are like me and would quite fancy gold coloured cot then check out this Asda George bargain, here*. Yours for just £69 delivered. Just enter DELFREE at the checkout and get FREE delivery.

Apart from the £34,799 difference in price, how else do the two vary? The Bela Luxury Cot is plated in 18k gold whereas the Asda George one is painted solid pine wood. A Champagne Silk Mattress versus no mattress.

I like the novelty value of the Bela Luxury Cot but for me the Limited Edition Gold Cot by Asda George wins hands down for great value.

Save Up To A Third On Baby & Toddler Toys @ Tesco Direct

 Save Up To A Third On Baby & Toddler Toys @ Tesco Direct

Tesco have their Baby Event on at the same time as the Asda one, meaning that we have great baby and toddler deals popping up all over right now. Tesco Direct have reduced the price of nearly 200 of their Baby and Toddler Toys, and although the promotion says that the prices have been reduced by up to a third there are items that are half price in there too.

Prices start from just £3.33, and the offers include Lego Duplo, Playmobil, Melissa and Doug, Disney, Thomas, Mega Bloks and lots more. Here are a few of the best that I can see:

  • Lego Duplo Number Train - was £12, now £9
  • Plum Hendon Wooden Kitchen - was £70, now £35
  • Wooden Bakery Play Set - was £10, now £6.67
  • Paddington Talking Soft Toy - was £18, now £12
  • VTech Infant Discovery Cube - was £50, now £28
  • Carousel 60 Piece Train Set - was £12, now £9
  • Playmobil Carry Cases - was £10, now £6.67
  • Melissa & Doug Monthly Magnetic Calendar - was £15, now £10
  • The Gruffalo Hand Puppet - was £25, now £12.50

There are loads more really good toy deals, and it's worth a quick look if you have any birthday presents to get, or to pop a few things in the cupboard for party presents.

I'm really impressed with the Plum Hendon Kitchen for only £35, as that's a really good price for a good quality wooden play kitchen. If I hadn't already got one for my youngest I'd be getting one of those, especially as it's not a pink one!

All of these toys can be home delivered from £3, or you can click and collect from any Tesco store.

3-in-1 Walker Ride-On Learning Train: Half Price and Free Delivery @ Very

This toy looks pretty fantastic, it's half price in the the sale at Very, and this weekend there's free delivery too! This means that instead of the £40 it was originally, it's £20 delivered! The next cheapest I can find is £24.99 and that's before delivery charges, so I think this is a really good price.

Although the picture on the Very website doesn't show it, the toy has loads of learning activities, sounds and music. It can be used as a floor play toy, then as a walker using the engine piece, then the carriage can be added turning it into a ride-on.

It's suitable from 12 months to around 3 years, and needs 3 AA batteries for the lights and sounds. The reviews are all really positive, and this one is my favourite:

He goes around the house saying choo choo and it's driving my daughter mad. The best money I ever spent.

To get the free delivery you need to add the code 6CTCR, and that will give you free standard UK delivery all weekend with no minimum spend. You can find that and other Very Promotional Codes over in our voucher section.

Back Seat Parents: Three Things We Swore We'd Never Do... Until We Had Kids

Back Seat Parents: Three Things We Swore We'd Never Do... Until We Had Kids

Hey, remember back when you thought you had parenthood all sewn up? Cast your mind back to w-a-y before you had kids. Back when - armed with nothing more than your judgemental observations of other parents and a breath-taking degree of naivety - you had views on everything from handling tantrums to tackling toilet training.

My friend Liza has a name for people like that - the kind of people most of us were before our kids came along. ‘Backseat parents,’ she calls them.“I was one,” she says. “I reckon we all were until we actually had kids."

"You know they type; despite never having been parents, they happily dispense their pearls of parental wisdom to unsuspecting friends and family - before skipping home to their immaculately tidy houses where they sleep uninterrupted for at least eight blissful hours. But the moment they have a child of their own, everything changes.”

Yep, I was one of 'those' people. So as an act of an attrition, here is my confession. These are just three of the many stupid things I fervently believed about how to be a brilliant parent. Before I actually met my kids...

10% Off When You Spend £30 In The Star Wars Shop @ Zavvi

It seems the whole world has gone a bit Star Wars mad with the release of the trailer for the next movie due out at Christmas. Having a new trilogy of films in the franchise, then one a year after that means that a whole new generation is going to go Star Wars crazy. There are an awful lot of grown up fans out there, and many of them will be needing Fathers Day Gifts soon as well!

Right now Zavvi have an offer of 10% off when you spend £30 on Star Wars, and they have free delivery on everything as well. There are fantastic Pop Vinyl figures from £10.99, T-shirts, Blu-rays, action figures, and even Star Wars Lego is included in the offer!

There's no code to enter, the discount is automatically applied at the checkout. If your house is anything like ours you could grab a few gifts in one and get the 10% off. Hubby would like the retro Star Wars t-shirts, so that would be Fathers Day organised from the kids, and my eldest is Lego crazy so spending £30 shouldn't be too hard!

FREE LEGO: Daily Mail Promotion Due In May

FREE LEGO: Daily Mail Promotion Due In May

This is advance warning for the next Daily Mail Free Lego Promotion, that we know is scheduled to take place in May. Although we have details of the Lego sets that we have been told will be given away, the date is yet to be confirmed. It's normally around the May Half Term, so the best guess in 22nd May at the moment, but it may be earlier to coincide with the Lego Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 launch. When dates are confirmed we will let you know.

For those of you who are new to the madness that is Daily Mail Free Lego, this is how it works. Every day during the promotional period the Daily Mail / Mail On Sunday will print a voucher in the paper that you then take to a WH Smiths or Toys R Us to collect your free toy. That's it, nice and simple.

Mum Wins Right To Delay Daughter's Start To School Without Missing Reception Year

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 17 April, 2015 at 12:49 pm

Mum Wins Right To Delay Daughter's Start To School Without Missing Reception Year

A mother has won a landmark legal ruling, allowing her daughter to start school a year later than usual due to her summer birthday.

Rosie Dutton opted to delay her daughter's start to school because the little girl, whose birthday is in August, turned four years old just a few weeks before she was due to start school.

But the council informed the family that Olivia would have to go straight to Year 1 when she started school, missing out on her Reception year entirely.

The Daily Mail reports:

Now, Olivia has been given a place in Reception at her top choice of school, Heathfields Infants School in Tamworth, after the council accepted Ms Dutton's appeal.

The decision could open the floodgates to a tide of similar cases regarding parents of 'summer babies' who want their child to start Reception class after they turn five. 

According to campaigners, Olivia's case is just one of 250,000 across the country where summer-born children are being compelled to catch up with older classmates after skipping a year of education. 

Schools usually review such requests on a case by case basis, with 'exceptional circumstances' such as a baby being born prematurely being take into account when determining whether to accept an application to delay the start of a child's education.

Alongside the worry of whether your child will be offered a place at the primary school of your choice, many parents feel particularly anxious about the possibility that their child will be held back at school due to being younger than their peers.

Is this something that worries you? Do you welcome this news, on the basis that you would consider delaying your own child's start to school, or do you think parents who delay their child's education aren't thinking far enough ahead, or taking their child's own interests into account?

We'd love to hear your views on this.
