Disney Pop Vinyl Figures BOGOF and Free Delivery @ Zavvi

I love these cute POP Vinyl figures, and they are getting more popular and collectible by the day! Right now at Zavvi they have a selection of the Disney POP Vinyl figures on Buy One Get One Free, including some of the ever popular Frozen ones. They are selling for £14.99 and BOGOF, making them effectively £7.50 each, and they normally retail for at least £10, so this is a great price.

The Frozen ones are likely to sell very quickly, so if you want Olaf, Anna, or the new Sven or Kristoff figures then you might want to grab those sooner rather than later. Also included in the offer are Disney figures from Big Hero 6, Beauty and The Beast, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Jungle Book and more.

There's no code to enter, the offer is automatically applied when you add 2 figures to your basket. Standard delivery is free, so there's no other charges to add on.

Henbrandt Sterling Play Money £1.04 Delivered @ Amazon Seller: Simply Direct Ltd

There's not many things nowadays that you can get for £1.04 delivered, is there? If your child digs role play games or has a play shop then this is the deal for you. We all owned play money at some point in our lives but it never looked convincing. I am not so keen on a lot of it that's on the market. Look at this Henbrandt Sterling Play Money from Amazon Seller Simply Direct Ltd, it looks the part and is only £1.04 with FREE delivery.

In the Henbrandt Play Money Set you get a mixture of realistic looking coins and notes. Your child will feel rich with what looks like the real deal. You might want to explain to them that they cannot spend it at Tescos, though.

This Henbrandt Play Money is suitable for children aged three and above. Don't think of it as a babyish toy as this is the kind of thing used in schools to teach. Whether it's numeracy or just using money skills, using these can act as a visual aid.

These are a bargain, so grab yours now!

Disney Princess Girls' Grey Slippers £3.99 @ Argos

Disney Princess Girls' Grey Slippers £3.99 @ Argos

Disney Princess is a great success for Disney. You find it everywhere which means it's popular. These Disney Princess Slippers from Argos are pretty spectacular and I wouldn't mind a pair myself if I am honest. They have been reduced from £7.99 to £3.99 which makes them a nice affordable gift or treat. When my boys do well at school this is the sort of thing I give them (bar the Princess style), it's just a nice token to say well done.

Argos have labelled these as "grey slippers" but heck no they should be called SUPER SPARKLY Pump Slippers. Look at them, slippers do not come any glitzier than these bad boys. Plus no Disney Princess would be caught dead in "grey" anything. These are silver, sparkly with a Disney Princess motif on the top.

These glitterbombs for the feet come in sizes eight through to twelve. Grab them as a gift, that party present box or just for the sake of it.

You can reserve and collect the Disney Princess Girls' Grey Slippers for FREE from your local Argos or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

ADULTS Adventure Time Doc Martens Boots Now Available @ Doc Martens

ADULTS Adventure Time Doc Martens Boots Now Available @ Doc Martens

Wow, wow and more flaming wow! You get the Adventure Time Doc Martens in adults sizes! Woah, these will sell like hot cakes. Like I said on my blog last night about the kids' ones, they are HIGHLY collectable. As far as I know, you can only get these in big sizes straight from Doc Martens themselves.

So what's the damage? We know that Adventure Time children's boots are £65 for the patterned ones and £80 for the Limited Edition Finn and Jake ones. The adult sizes cost £110 for the patterned and a whopping £130 for the Limited Edition Finn and Jakes.

There are not cheap but they are still proving popular as there are certain sizes sold out already. Buy these and all of the kids in the playground will brand you the coolest mum in the playground.  These will take guts to wear as they are very much statement footwear.

Delivery is completely FREE and so it should be at that price! You can find the children's one in yesterday's blog, here.

TODAY ONLY: 20% Off Selected Kidswear @ Marks & Spencer

TODAY ONLY: 20% Off Selected Kidswear @ Marks & Spencer

For today only, Marks & Spencer have 20% off selected clothing, beauty and home items. This is good news if like me you have four little boys to buy for. Trust me when I say they bankrupt me. Babywear is included too, so if you are expecting, know someone who is or have a little bambino, then this will be handy for you. From what I have tried it isn't applied to any offer items like the 3 for 2 underwear, but anything else it is. You don't need to enter a promo code as it comes off automatically and is shown in the price next to applicable items,

Marks & Spencer have a great reputation when it comes to kids clothes. I always find them a touch pricey though, so the 20% off makes them good value.

This Autograph Floral Bloomer Set* is ever so cute and different. It was £18 and is now only £14.40 and this Baby Boys' Stripe Rugby Bodysuit* was £12 now £9.60.

For the little girl in your life, this Elsa Swimsuit* is now only £8-£9.60 and these Autograph Floral Leggings* are now only £6.40 to £7.20.

There's so much to choose from with hundreds of lines included so it's worth taking a look.

Remember you can collect your order for FREE from store or pay £3.50 for home delivery.

Up To 20% Off Happyland @ Early Learning Centre

Up To 20% Off Happyland @ Early Learning Centre

I was in my local Early Learning Centre the other day and was so sad when I was told it was closing down.  I loved that place as a child and my children love it now but it's a sign of the times, I guess. That's what Early Learning Centre is about, your parents shopped there and so do you for your kids. Why? Offers like this one... Up to 20% Off Happyland Toys. Starting from just £4, these are great birthday presents for little people.

Happyland by the Early Learning Centre has always reminded me of Fisher Price's Little People range. I just adore all the different themed sets you get, and you can just expand as much as you like by adding on sets.

Here's my top picks of the Happyland deals: The Happyland Enchanted Carriage* was £10 now £5.60. That's even more than 20% off so that's a bonus. The Happyland Rose Cottage* only has 10% off but is still a good buy at £36. I love the idea of the Happyland Store and Play* as it's a storage box but unzips to a play mat. it's reduced from £22 to £17.60.

You can collect in store for FREE or pay £3.95 for home delivery.

Heads Up: Mid Season Next Sale Is Happening Soon

 Heads Up: Mid Season Next Sale Is Happening Soon

A little birdie has told us that the Next Sale is happening soon, this month in fact. The ever-popular sale apparently starts on Saturday 21st March and I would imagine that stores will hold open at the usual ridiculously easy time of 5am. Now this isn't set in stone but our source is a reliable one so we reckon it's solid enough to give you guys the heads up.

In the meantime, you can shop Next's Clearance Section, here*

I'd imagine that in a few weeks that selected Next Directory customers will receive an email offering a VIP slot. If you have never been to any of their Mid Season Sales you will know that they are not a patch on the Boxing Day one. Having said that, I have still managed to pick up for myself and more so for the kids.

The Childrenswear is the reason people go so early instore as it's a bestseller for Next. I know how you guys love it on here so get to your Next early if you can handle the early morning rise. Although, you have kids so that'll be piece of cake for you.

We shall confirm as soon as we find out from Next if our sale information is correct and let you know on here.

Adventure Time Doc Martens On Sale NOW! @ Schuh

WOWZA! We told you about they were coming....The Doc Martens/Adventure Time Collaboration has hit the shops, well Schuh to be precise. Go, go, go if you want these as they will sell out and end up on eBay for double the price. The White Finn ones and the Yellow Jakes ones are highly collectable as they are limited editions and are priced at £80 a pair. The Black patterned ones are just £65.

Okay, so these are pricey but they are pretty awesome and your kids will love you forever...you can't put a price on that can you? Plus I just heard today that there's to be an Adventure Time film to be made. I will hazard a guess that it'll be in cinemas by the end of next year. Be ahead of the trend and get these boots now.

Every size is in stock now but be aware that as soon as the word spreads that these are out they WILL sell out!

Standard delivery is FREE with these as is store pick up. Want them sooner? Pay just £1 to get them next day!

Mother's Day Nightie/Pyjamas £8/£12 @ Very

Mother's Day Nightie/Pyjamas £8/£12 @ Very

Well who know you got special Mother's Day Nightwear? I most certainly didn't, but I am willing to wear anything pink. Over at Very they are selling two extremely pink items of sleepwear... A Nightie and Pyjamas. The Pyjamas are reduced to £12 from £18, and the Nightie was £12 now only £8. What a different Mother's Day present. As someone who puts on her pyjamas as soon as dinnertime is over I would love these!

Both the Pyjamas and the Nightie are made by Sorbet and are available in sizes 8 through to 22-24 which is a super range.

The Nightie (Nightdress) has three quarter length sleeves and a rounded neck. It won't win any points for sexiness but who says us mums have to go to bed looking like a glamour model anyway?

The Pyjamas have heart printed bottoms and a white top with a motif that reads "Perfect Mum". These would be nice to pack into a hospital bag for those of you that are pregnant. Okay, so they aren't maternity ones but once you have baby it's amazing how much your bump goes down.

Choose to Collect+ to get your order sent to a local newsagent or shop for you to pick up for FREE or pay £3.95 for Next Day delivery.

BOGOF on Disney Blu-rays & DVDs Now LIVE!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 1 March, 2015 at 8:02 pm

BOGOF on Disney Blu-rays & DVDs Now LIVE!

Twice a year Disney do a special offer of Buy One Get One Free on their DVDs and Blu-rays, and the next one starts tomorrow! As the offer is from Disney themselves it usually includes all major retailers like Amazon, Tesco, Asda, Zavvi as well as from the Disney Store themselves.

As the offer doesn't start until tomorrow not all retailers are showing the offer as live yet, but some are showing the offer now. You can already order from Zavvi or Tesco groceries, and you can order from the others tomorrow.

I'd be inclined to use Amazon for the free delivery, or one of the supermarkets for the free click and collect, but until the morning we won't know how much everyone is charging!

We will update this post tomorrow with the relevant links and update prices for you. Watch this space!

70% Off Plasticine Pots & Pieces Super Set: was £25, now £7.50 @ Debenhams

Okay, so this isn't play-doh, but before that came along plasticine was the original soft modelling toy for kids, and it's just as much fun as it's smellier replacement. Debenhams has a huge 38 piece Plasticine Pots & Pieces Super Set reduced by 70%, down from £25 to only £7.50.

The set contains 24 tubs of plasticine, and 14 modelling accessories, which should keep the children occupied for quite a while. There's also an ideas and instructions leaflet if they get stuck for inspiration.  This set is still selling for £19.99 on Amazon, so you're getting a bit of a bargain by ordering it from Debenhams.

Home delivery will add an extra £3.99, or you can click and collect for free from your local Debenhams. So, what will your children make with all that plasticine?

50% Off Takeaways with code @ Just Eat

50% Off Takeaways with code @ Just Eat

Fancy a takeaway? There's a voucher code that's giving 50% off when you order through Just Eat, but we think it could be an error and may be stopped soon, so you need to hurry!

To get your 50% off, just choose your local takeaway venue and order your food as normal, the enter the promotional code spread50 at the basket stage. If it doesn't work at that stage then the voucher has been pulled, but it's worth a try if you're quick!

We've been told that it's working at Papa Johns Pizza too, which could be a great treat for tonight if you haven't got the dinner on already.

Click here to use the voucher code spread50 @ Just Eat*

  • Discount: 50% Off
  • Expires: Unknown
  • Code: spread50

You might see the full amount on the final confirmation page, but this is standard when the voucher is used apparently, as long as it shows the 50% off working at the basket when you add the voucher then that is what they charge you. When someone called Just Eat to check they were told "When the total order value exceeds the voucher value, the total order price is reserved by your bank for us to collect. However, when we do collect the funds, we only take the payment after the voucher deduction."

Sound good? Okay, who's hungry? :)

If you use the code TODAY25 it takes 25% off meaning that this costs £7.49!

FREE Frozen Free Fall App (Android and IOS) from Google/iTunes

by Lisa Hayes in Freebies on 1 March, 2015 at 3:29 pm

FREE Frozen Free Fall App (Android and IOS) from Google/iTunes

There are lots of free apps based on Frozen, and some of the unofficial ones are a little odd to say the least. The Frozen Free Fall App is an official Disney one, and although it isn't brand new they have just updated it and added new features. It's free to download, so as long as you disable or password protect the option for in-app purchasing then it won't cost a penny.

It's a three match crystals game, a little like candy crush, and from the reviews it's more suited to older children, unless the kids aren't bothered by being stuck on a certain level while they crack it.

If you already played it and are wondering what has changed, there are new levels  and you can melt away ice crystals with Olaf's new melting heart power up.

Just remember to block those in-app purchases to avoid a nasty bill!

 

Pregnancy Announcements: How would you do it?

Pregnancy Announcements: How would you do it?

In the news today is Lily Cole's pregnancy announcement via a photo of a post-it note saying "I AM HAVING A BABY!" on Instagram. Not so long ago Justin Timberlake posted a pic of him kissing his wife's bump to announce her pregnancy via his Facebook page, and it seems that the trend for announcing a pregnancy using your social media account is being used more and more by us civilians too. I'm presuming that the nearest and dearest are told first, before it gets posted on twitter though, but I could be wrong!  Here are some of the funniest (and the worst!) that I have seen:
