Vans Launches NEW Disney Range Plus 30% Off Current Lines (With Code)

It's only taken like two years for Vans to bring their Disney range to the United Kingdom. If you have not yet seen this magnificent Vans/Disney collaboration then you need to have a look here*. Sign up and you will find out more via email, like their official release date. Bagsy the Minnie Mouse ones!

If you love your Vans and desperately need a pair from this uber cool brand then use promo code VANSFAMILY0515 at the checkout to get a whopping 30% off your purchase. It's not all footwear either, they do hats, tops, accessories and more. Oh and they offer FREE delivery on ALL orders too! You cannot grumble at that.

My boys go daft for Vans and it's because they are "in". I actually don't mind buying them as they tend to last and only need replacing once their feet have outgrown them.

Vans aren't just for the older kids but little ones too, check out these Infant Classic Slip On Shoes for Girls* and for Boys*. Use the code and they are just £14 instead of £20.

These Vans Classic Slip Ons are very popular around my eldest son's age group (9-10) and come in a variety of colours. You'll pay only £18.90 a pair and that includes delivery.

Jupiter Metal & Glass Desk Reduced From £75 To £19.50 @ Tesco Direct

Jupiter Metal & Glass Desk Reduced From £75 To £19.50 @ Tesco Direct

Kids needing somewhere to do their homework? Get them a desk! It doesn't have to cost £££'s getting one either. Sure you could go out and get a second hand one but why do that when you can get a new one for just £19.50? Head over to Tesco Direct where they have reduced the Jupiter Metal and Glass Desk, in both black and white, from £75 to just £19.50. That's a saving of £55.50!! I know, I couldn't believe my eyes either. Got Clubcard Vouchers? These desks are included in Clubcard Boost too, so you could get one for around £10 in vouchers!!!

The Jupiter Metal and Glass Desk has a very modern and sleek look to it. I bet there's a fair few teenager out there that wouldn't mind one of these in their bedrooms.

It stands 75 centimetres tall, 120 centimetres wide and 60 centimetres deep. The glass top is 8 millimetre thick and the reviews on these desks aren't bad at all. The black one is rated higher than the white, which will be down to looks I would imagine.

It's somewhere to study but it can also be used to stick a television and Xbox on too. These desks can take up to a 30" monitor, so that's a reasonable size. We have something similar in our eldest son's room but it cost more than twenty quid.

Delivery costs £7.95 on these but with that massive reduction you won't mind paying that so much.

NEW Minions @ Build-A-Bear!

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 22 May, 2015 at 8:31 pm

NEW Minions @ Build-A-Bear!

This is the best news I have heard all day - you can now get Minions at Build-A-Bear Workshop!

They are available from today online, and I have just wasted a happy few minutes listening to the sounds you can have put into your Minion.  You can get Kevin, Bob or Stuart, and then these are different accessories and outfits you can choose as well, just like you can design your own bear.The overalls are to be expected, but there's also a hippie costume and a pirate one, and you can add a guitar, teddy or a BANANA!

Prices will depend on which character you choose, and which accessories, outfits and sounds you add, and yes they can be pretty pricey. This isn't a 'deal' as there is no special offer at all, but the Minions are so popular with both adults and kids that this is reason enough to share the news. To be honest I think the issue may be getting hold of one before they sell out!

Do you know anyone who would like one? Apart from me of course. ;)

It's A Mewgaroo Hoodie. Want.

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 22 May, 2015 at 7:56 pm

It's A Mewgaroo Hoodie. Want.

Ok, people. There are onesies, and then there's this. The Mewgaroo Hoodie. It's essentially a hoodie with a giant pocket for your favourite furry friend. Yes, really.

We discovered it over at Country Living, of all places, who had this to say about it:

If you've ever had a purring cat lie on your belly, engulfing you with love and warmth, you'll know that it's a feeling that you wish you could carry with you all day long. And now, thanks to the new Mewgaroo Hoodie, you can.

If you have pet-loving little people in your life, you can bet your bottom dollar that this will be on their Christmas wish list pretty soon. I reckon it'd also work pretty well with a newborn - imagine snuggling your own little wallaby in your very own cozy pouch. (Obviously you shouldn't ever actually do that.)

Made by a Japanese firm that ordinarily specialises in pet products, the Mewgaroo Hoodie will be available to buy later this month for $59 but at the moment it looks it's not available worldwide. Should that change, you'll be the first to know. Kinda.

Now form an orderly queue...

Up To 50% Off Happyland @ ELC

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 May, 2015 at 7:49 pm

Up To 50% Off Happyland @ ELC

The best thing about a Bank Holiday for me is all the shopping events! There are always some great special offers and this one from ELC is fab. They have big discounts on their Happyland Toys, and there are reductions of up to 50%!

Prices are as low as £1.60, but the best bargains are on some of the larger sets. The fantastic Sherwood Castle set was £30 and is now £20, the Bakery and Tea Room set is half price at £10, and the best selling Country Train Set has £20 off!

I think my favourite is the Pirate Ship set which is down from £35 to £28, but then I am more partial to Pirates than Princesses. Saying that, the Fantasy Palace is cracking value now at £20 with the amount of toys you are getting for your money.

Although the website does say up to 50% off, most of the reductions look more like a third off or thereabouts, but this still makes them really good value.

All the Happyland sets can be collected from stores for free, or home delivery charges are from £3.95.

Just as an extra little offer you can get the Lego Duplo Peekaboo Jungle Play Set* for £4.99 with any order you place at ELC, saving you £5. It's a cute little set with animals to make and a story book featuring them. My son has it and I think it's well worth getting at less than £5.

Kids Character Fleece Blankets was £7, now £4 @ Tesco Direct

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 May, 2015 at 6:56 pm

Kids Character Fleece Blankets was £7, now £4 @ Tesco Direct

At Tesco Direct they have reduced the price of some of their kids' Fleece Blankets down from £7 to just £4 each, and they are also included in the Clubcard Boost so you could get one for just £2 worth of Clubcard Points!

The ones reduced to £4 are Star Wars, Star Wars Rebels, Fireman Sam, Hello Kitty and Angry Birds. For an extra £1 you can get a Frozen Fleece Blanket as well, although the other character designs are still selling for £7.

I bought one of the Lego Fleece Blankets for my son when it was on offer a couple of weeks ago, and I can tell you that they are lovely and soft, as well as being much bigger than I thought - big enough to cover a single sized bed (although my boys have been mostly building dens with it!).

At £4 each I think these are a great price, and even better if you have some Clubcard Points to use in the Boost event. It feels like you are getting a freebie when you pay with points doesn't it?

These character fleece blankets can be collected from any Tesco store, or home delivery costs from £3.

Fireman Sam Pyjamas Twin Pack was £12.99 now £5.19 @ Argos

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 22 May, 2015 at 5:43 pm

Fireman Sam Pyjamas Twin Pack was £12.99 now £5.19 @ Argos

This twin pack of Fireman Sam Pyjamas is a brilliant bargain at Argos right now. They were priced at £12.99, and the price has now been slashed and they are £5.19 for the two pairs! These are going to sell very fast!

These Fireman Sam pyjamas come in sizes from 2 years up to 6 years, and you get one with long sleeves and long trousers, and another with short sleeves and shorts, so you can mix and match.

They are 100%  cotton and machine washable, so they will be nice and comfy for bed time. The link above will take you to the smallest size, and you can use the drop down tick box to choose the size you need.

Some of the sizes are available all over the place, and others are more hit and miss, so hopefully you will be lucky enough to have what you need in a store near you. Stocks are available for free reserve and collect, or home delivery is from £3.95 where stock is available.

MASSIVE Clearance: Items From 40p Delivered @ Internet Gift Store

I get all excited when Internet Gift Store have FREE delivery on and they do for this weekend. IGS is one site that I love browsing. It's like one of those independent gift shops you see on little town's side street. You know the ones, full of unusual bits and pieces. Internet Gift Store boast an impressive clearance section jam packed with bargains. Items start from just 40p delivered.

Think Father's Day, what will you get Daddy Dearest? How about a Superman Neon Light* for his man cave? It's just £19.99 delivered. £12.99 delivered for this Superman Jumpsuit*. This Dr Who Tardis Bathrobe* is just £11.99 delivered.  Have a look there's heaps of goodies that would be ideal for Father's Day.

This One Direction Lunch Bag* is only 75p, that would even be handy to keep as a spare. My boys have lost more lunch boxes than I can count. I might buy a couple of these ones and I bet they would remember theirs all the time.

One thing I will say about Internet Gift Store is that prices can fluctuate at the drop of a hat so just watch out for that!

Which? Exposes SPF 30 Sun Creams That Don't Work

by Nada in Misc on 22 May, 2015 at 10:56 am

Which? Exposes SPF 30 Sun Creams That Don't Work

When you buy Sun Cream you expect it to protect you from harmful UVA and UVB radiation. They can really cost £££'s so the last think you want is to buy some only to find out that they are not keeping your skin safe. Consumer organisation Which? launched an investigation that involved testing thirteen products with an SPF of 30. An assortment of brands like Hawaiian Tropic, Garnier Ambre Solaire and Boots Soltan sun creams were tested.

The results of this tested proved very interesting indeed. Some failed to provide the SPF level protection that they claimed to.

Here's what Which? said "Don't Buy" to:

  • Boots Soltan Protect & Moisturise Lotion SPF30 (200ml)*:The Which? test found that this Boots Soltan sun lotion provides just under two thirds of the SPF protection it claims. That's an astonishing result from such a well known brand. The test showed that it does meet the EU recommendation for UVA protection but failed the Which? SPF tests TWICE.
  • Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion SPF30 (180ml)*: According to the Which 2015 test results, this Hawaiian Tropic lotion failed TWICE. It does meet EU products for UVA protection though.

Here's three that have failed in recent years but the "failed test" batches are still on the store shelves:

  • Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF30 (200ml) & Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Sun Fluid SPF30 (150ml): These two sun creams failed the Which? SPF tests in 2014 and this year when tested again.The Piz Buin Sun Fluid is getting it's formula changed. It won't be on sale until 2017, which means this "failed batch" is still out there.
  • Malibu Protective Lotion SPF30 (200ml): This failed the 2014 tests twice for insufficient SPF30 and UVA protection. The new formula passed both SPF and UVA tests in the 2015 series of tests. However, it is thought that the old "stuff" is still out there but there's a way to tell. The new formula has a reference code on the back of the bottle that starts with FM.

All brands mentioned were made aware of the findings by Which? and state that all the products are tested in accordance with international test methods and meet their SPF claim.

If you do need sun cream and wish to avoid these brands then check out this glitch from Marks and Spencer here*.

GLITCH: Massive Discount On Nature's Extracts Toiletries @ Marks And 5pencer

It's glitch time, which means grab that debit card! Head over to Marks and Spencer and you will see that some of their Nature's Extracts Toiletries have 50% off. Great deal, but add promo code MAY15EM at the check out and it will take 40% off rather than 20%. What's happening is that the 20% is coming off of the original selling price and not the reduced.

I added these items to my order: Lemon Verbena Hand and Body Lotion* was £2 now £1, Two Fresh Aloe Vera Handwashes* was £4 for 2 now £2 and Pampering Cocoa Butter Hand Wash* was £2 now £1. That order would have cost me £8 without any discounts, £4 with just the 50% off and £3.60 once the code is use but because of the glitch you get it all for just £2.40!

As with any glitch, you need to go fast. Items sell out, and the retailer can cotton on and fix that money-saving bug in the system.

You can Click and Collect your order for FREE from Marks and Spencer or pay £3.50 for home delivery.

Wickey Smart Empire Climbing Tower £374.95 Delivered @ Wickey

by Nada in Deals on 21 May, 2015 at 9:27 pm

Wickey Smart Empire Climbing Tower £374.95 Delivered @ Wickey

This is the back garden toy to please the kids all year round. Check it out! It honestly looks like something you would find down your local park. It is not dirt cheap but it's certainly the cheapest by miles around for something of this calibre. It was £629.95 which to be fair is how much something like this costs but it's now down to just £374.95. Plus you get FREE delivery, which you kind of expect when you are paying this kind of money.

The Wickey Smart Empire Climbing Tower isn't really that expensive when you factor in all of the different play elements. You have a climbing tower, two swings, a telescope, a steering wheel, a sandpit, a tarpaulin roof and a Wickey flag.

This is the best I have seen for this price range and you can pick the colour of the roof which is pretty darn cool. It's made from wood and all of the pieces come pre-drilled. It's not something that will get whizzed in an hour but will more than likely take you a full day with help. The kids will love it even though you will swear no less than thirty times building the thing.

20% Off Selected Lines @ Ann Summers : From £3.20!

20% Off Selected Lines @ Ann Summers : From £3.20!

Us mums can be funny when it comes to spending money on ourselves at the best of times and especially when it comes to something like underwear, well there’s often something more important calling, usually involving the kids! But it’s nice to treat yourself every now and again, especially when there’s a discount and Ann Summers currently have 20% off selected lines, even on items that are already reduced.

As you’d expect there’s loads of gorgeous bras and knickers included in this offer but if you’re after something a little more adventurous what about this Sexy Santa Dress?* Originally £20, it’s now £15 and with that extra 20% automatically taken off at checkout, you’ll only pay £12.

The 20% is off a whole range of Fancy Dress, Hosiery, Swimwear, Erotic and Lingerie and as I mentioned above, that’s on some items that are already reduced, so it’s well worth having a good look around.

The sizes on offer are one of the main draws for me, supermarkets are all well and good price wise but it can be difficult if you’re not a “standard” cup.

The clearance section is also worth a look here* too. Sizes may be more limited in some styles but the prices are great.

Ann Summers also take PayPal and when they send out your items, it’s in “discreet packaging”.  Just in case you don’t fancy the postman knowing where you’ve been shopping but in all honesty who cares?! Just if you’re the shy retiring type.

You can also collect from your local store free of charge, free standard delivery is a reasonable £2.50 (free if you spend more than £35) or if you’re in a rush, next day delivery is £5.95.
