These are so sweet, don't you think? They're ideal for wearing with dresses, skirts and shorts, and the Mothercare first walker canvas shoes come in white and finished with a navy, spotty bow. They're designed for babies who are taking their first steps, and they benefit from specialist features and will protect their feet from unsafe surfaces.

Well, not much more to say, is there. They are super cute, and cheap as you're likely to get them.

Ladybird & Bat Harness Backpacks £1.72 & £1.81 Delivered @ Amazon Sellers

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 8:55 pm

Ladybird & Bat Harness Backpacks £1.72 & £1.81 Delivered @ Amazon Sellers

Amazon have the Ladybird or Bat Toddler Safety Backpack with harnesses straps available for £1.72 & £1.81, with free delivery. It's from a third party seller so there's no minimum amount required. You'll have to click on the links below, then go to 'other sellers'.

I used to be dead against putting toddlers on reins, until I had a toddler, and then two! I suddenly and quickly became a fan. I didn't have my girls in a pram, but I did have them close. I have seen some people with complaints about the quality of these backpacks but we've had the ladybird for two years, and haven't had any problems with it.

We have the ladybird backpack and my two year old loves it uses it running around the house (holding her own parent handle!) more than we do when out, and I can tell you three things about it:

1) It's a really small backpack, in comparison to some better known brands. It's a great size for a very small toddler - like a two - three year old - as they can't put much in it. It's perfectly sized for their snacks on a day out though, or a nappy and small bag of wipes if you want to head out without bags.

2) It's perfectly functional, and it works well, but it's not sewn as well as some of the more expensive brands, but in two years of use, we've never had a problem with it.

3) If it's something you're going to use every day, you might want to invest in something more expensive, but if you're going to be using it occasionally, for a holiday, or just to have a spare one, they are superb, and at the price, I think you can't go wrong!

Plimsolls £2.49 Delivered @ Shoe Zone

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 6:58 pm

Plimsolls £2.49 Delivered @ Shoe ZoneShoe Zone is selling two types of Plimsolls in black for £2.49 delivered.

To be perfectly honest, at this price I'm not even worried about them being 'back to school'? I reckon I could give my daughter a pair of these and a glitter pen and she'll have her new favourite shoes for the next couple of months at least, till she grows out of them!

The two pairs available right now are the Black School Plimsoll with Velcro Fastening, and the Walkright Gusset School Plimsoll in Black. Both are currently available from child size 7 up to size 5, and the Gusset are also available up to size 6.

At the price I'd be concerned about the quality, but they have really good reviews from parents who all say it's good for PE and has a comfortable fit. They were also happy with delivery and with the quality, especially for the price.

£5 Off £10 Spend On Meat & Fish With Voucher 40p In The SunInside The Sun newspaper on Thursday 31st July there will be a voucher giving you £5 off a £10 spend on fresh meat and fish. You have to buy The Sun for 40p, and cut out the voucher. What you do with the rest of the paper is up to you, but you need to redeem the voucher between the 31st July - 3rd August.

I believe this is England only, as Scotland had this offer a few weeks ago.

Our local Morrison's is amazing, from the wide isles to the mist spray over the vegetables, and with a fantastic meat and fish selection. It's my favourite supermarket in the area, so I'm quite pleased for an opportunity to shop there.

This offer is valid on a large selection to choose from: the butchery, sausage, bacon, poultry, fish, cooked meats, deli meats and so on.

Get 50% Off Fisher Price Toys @ Amazon

In honour of a certain Royal birthday, Amazon is offering some fab discounts on Fisher Price toys right now.

In particular I've got my eye on the Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set*, which is normally priced at £16.99 at Amazon but is currently just £8.50.

It's a toy tea set with three play modes - learning, music and imagination, to help teach tots about numbers, shapes, opposites, manners, greetings and more. When you tip the tea pot you'll hear fun sound effects, and if you press the teabag, the tea pot will sing you a song! And if you lift the old you'll learn all about opposites and manners. But never mind all that, I know my little 'un will just love getting to play tea parties with this.

Other fab items on special offer include:

Delivery will be free if you spend £10 or more, so this might be the perfect opportunity to pick up some bargains to pop away for Christmas gifts or birthday pressies.

Celebaby: Kimberley Walsh Posts Pregnant Selfie On Twitter

Celebaby: Kimberley Walsh Posts Pregnant Selfie On Twitter

Check out mum-to-be Kimberley Walsh and her spectacular baby bump!

The Girls Aloud singer shared the snap with her fans and followers on Twitter, and added the caption:

"Does my bump look big in this?!"

The Daily Mail reports:

"The ombre-haired beauty, who released her first clothing line at the start of the year, has been taking a serious approach to dressing her baby bump."

"Sticking to her preferred remit of flattering midi cuts and figure-fitting shapes, the 32-year-old has been embracing her fuller figure in recent months and instead of choosing billowing empire line dresses that skim over her bump, has decided to show off the shape in all its glory."

We reckon she's sporting a rather 'neat' and 'tidy' bump - although it used to drive me crackers when people said that to me during my last pregnancy. I mean c'mon - what would a 'messy' or unruly bump look like?

On that note, we'd love to hear some of the craziest or most rage-inducing things things said to you when you were pregnant. Whether they commented on how full your hands would be once the baby arrived or passed unsolicited remarks about your shape or size, you can wreak revenge by coming over to our Facebook page to tell us all about it.

Half Price Lelli Kelly Canvas & Sandals @ John Lewis

by Karen McGinn in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Half Price Lelli Kelly Canvas & Sandals @ John Lewis

As the title says, John Lewis tend to half a half price event on these every year and looks like it’s just kicked off though sizes will go fast. It’s mainly canvas and sandals but does include trainers and even a pair of boots. The link below will take you to the selection. Prices start from £22.

I’m a fan of Lelli Kelly shoes, not the commercials though I have to say, for the simple reason they go with a ton of outfits as they’re so colourful.

John Lewis have a whole load at half price right now but sizes are going quickly as you’d expect.  That said they do still have a decent selection in stock at the time of writing this. While £50 for a pair of child’s shoes may seem expensive and indeed is, the reduced price of £24.90 isn’t too bad at all.

You can collect these for free from a John Lewis or Waitrose near you and if you opt for home delivery that will add an extra £3 to your total.

Also if you are buying a few items from Toys R Us, or you are getting more than £29.99 worth of sale items, this offer can be particularly worthwhile. For example, you could get the Peppa Pig Go Glow Nightlight and Torch for £17.93. The cheapest I could find this elsewhere was £19.99.

Looks like hours of outdoor fun to me!

Tesco Baby Event Starts Today

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 10:46 am

Tesco Baby Event Starts TodayThe Tesco Baby Event starts today, and runs until the 8th of August, or until stocks last, I guess.

If you puree feed your baby, you'll know how expensive it is, so the 10 pots for £6 offer on mix and match Cow & Gate, HiPP Organic and Heinz* gives you 52 flavour options to choose from with a minimum of £1.90 saving on the 10 jars.  Bear Fruit Paws* are great 'days out' snacks, and at £2 for 4 instead of £2.40, the savings can quickly add up if you buy a few.

Pampers are BOGOF, so you could pick up the Pampers Easy Ups Size 5 Essential Pack 26 Nappiesnormally £8.19, at 32p a pull up, now 16p a pull up - not to be sneezed at for sure.

Huggies are 2 for £8, so whether that's for Little Swimmers or night time nappies, it's good value with a minimum of £2.36 saving on each set.

Mum & Me Baby Sleep Tights Bathwash 500Ml* is BOGOF, so you can either pick up two for £2.89 or one of those and a Mum & Me Baby Ultra Mild Head To Toe 500Ml*.

Tommee Tippee Explora Easy Scoop Feeding Bowls & Lids X2* are half off at £2 and the Tommee Tippee Explora Cool & Mash Bowl Lid & Spoon* is reduced to £3.

As far as more 'equipment' related stuff goes, the Avent Natural Microwave Steriliser* is half price at £12.99 and the Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Microwave Steam Steriliser* is £10.49 but that is currently about the best of that.

Hopefully that helps you save a few pennies this month!

Thomas & Friends Radio Control Thomas £10 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 10:43 am

Thomas & Friends Radio Control Thomas £10 Delivered @ Amazon

Amazon have Thomas & Friends Radio Control Thomas for £10 delivered just now. This sells for around the £19.99 mark in Argos and Asda. Boots have it for £18, so this is a good price.

It’s aimed at children that are yet to experience the pleasure of playing with a remote control toy. The remote control is big enough for little hands and simple enough for a small child to get the hang of.

Thomas can move forwards and backwards with the aid of the remote control. With him being aimed at young children, I don’t think he will move too fast, so you shouldn’t have to worry about him getting clattered off of every item of furniture in your living room.

Thomas is a firm favourite with many youngsters and even though he has had a bit of a revamp in recent years, seems to have stood the test of time. I like that fact, many other children’s characters from my youth, have disappeared a long time ago.

This requires a total of six AAA size batteries which or not included with this toy. I think it’s important to let you know that so that you don’t end up with the scenario of a Thomas that doesn’t move and a very disappointed child.

It’s free delivery guys so grab yourself one for a birthday or dare I say it Christmas present.

Thanks to LOUISE77UK @ HUKD

Disney Jake And The Never Land Pirates Kids Backpack 99p @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 10:15 am

Disney Jake And The Never Land Pirates Kids Backpack 99p @ Argos

Is your son or daughter a Jake and the Never Land Pirates fan? If so then check this out, Argos are selling Jake and the Never Land Pirates kids backpacks for only 99p. These were originally £8.99 so you are saving a massive £8 on these.

Whether your little one is starting nursery or school, one of these would be suitable. At such an affordable price you could even grab a couple. If you have a bus or train journey to do this summer, then a bag like this is great to pack something to keep them occupied and a snack.

It has adjustable shoulder straps so that you can fit it to your own little person. Now from reading the reviews, this is a fine size for an under 6. My guess is someone over six probably would want something a bit more grown up anyway.

I have checked thoroughly and there’s plenty of stock all around the United Kingdom for these. Home delivery is not an option. However, you can reserve and collect in your local Argos store.

I wouldn't stick around if you want one because at this price these are going to be flying out of the Argos stores.

Outdoor Toys & Wheeled Toys 20% Off @ Smyths Toys

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 9:55 am

Outdoor Toys & Wheeled Toys 20% Off @ Smyths ToysSmyths Toys has taken 20% off outdoor toys and wheeled toys giving parents a bit of a helping hand in getting kids outdoors. It sounds great, but it does also look as though they have purposely inflated some prices so not everything's as much of a bargain as it looks. Read on to see what we think is a good buy though.

A great example of a not-so-sale item is the clown bouncy castle*, which was £99.99 last week, but this week is 'on sale' at £103.99. That said the next price I can find it for is £169.95, so if you're in the market for it, it's a better price than elsewhere.  The same can be said for the Princess Slide And Hoop Bouncer*.

Loads of you have been asking about bikes and balance bikes, and while I'm not sure how the prices in this category differ from previous prices, we do know that balance bikes for under £20 are a bargain. Smyths Toys have the Kool Sports Balance Bike Green* and Kool Sports Balance Bike Pink* for £19.99 each, and four other options for under £30.

Another great saving is on bicycles, it seems to me. The 12" bikes start* from £31.99 whereas similar around the web are more - Tesco has similar options for £40, and Argos has similar from £39.99 (on sale).

While I dislike that Smyths have obviously inflated some prices - it makes the ones we don't know for sure seem less trustworthy! - there are still some great prices to be had, so hopefully you can pick up a bargain.

Fisher Price Little People Disney Princess Palace £26.50 Delivered @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 22 July, 2014 at 9:46 am

Fisher Price Little People Disney Princess Palace £26.50 Delivered @ Amazon

If you like this then I would move quickly. This is the cheapest that these have been on Amazon. For £26.50 delivered, you can bag yourself a Fisher Price Little People Disney Princess Castle.

This is not just your bog standard toy castle. It’s interactive with seven separate play areas. Recommended for children aged one and a half to five years old, the pieces aren’t tiny and are quite chunky.

This castle is very impressive with a dance floor that recognises which princess is on it and then responds with their special songs and phrases. It even knows their name!

Watch your child shriek as their princess spins around on the moving floor. Every time the front door opens a fanfare is sounded. This is absolute luxury for any plastic princess, as it has a lift to take them to the balcony. Little accessories are included like a bed and dining table.

This lovely castle includes two princess figures, Cinderella and Snow White. You can buy more Disney figures for this though. There’s loads of different ones, like Jasmine and Aladdin* or Beauty and the Beast*. These are all recognised in the castle and have their own songs played to them.

What are you waiting for? Grab yours before they all go!

Wooden Single Bed Frame £39 Was £99.99 @ Mothercare

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 21 July, 2014 at 9:56 pm

Wooden Single Bed Frame £39 Was £99.99 @ MothercareMothercare have the Darlington Wooden Single Bed Frame in the clearance section for £39, with £2.95 delivery. You will need a mattress with this still. I have been looking around for something similar, and the closest I can see is £70 from Tesco.

Mothercare say that the Darlington Single Bed is suitable for children from age 4. It has a sturdy design, and measures at L194 x W86 x H62cm.

I think this is a fantastic price for a kids bed! We had one we paid over £100 for with a mattress that was so rubbish we had to replace it. I think this is a much better purchase.

You will have to put this bed together, but they say it's quite easy and your little one can get in and out of bed themselves.

This bed is made of 63% Pine, 37% LVL -  I have no idea what that is! - and you can simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth.

Thanks to Raechelle for letting us know about this deal!

Thomas and Friends My First Sit and Ride £9 @ Amazon

by Nada in Deals on 21 July, 2014 at 8:01 pm

Thomas and Friends My First Sit and Ride £9 @ Amazon

You will need to be quick on this one. Amazon have Thomas and Friends My First Sit and Ride for only £9. This very same ride on toy is £20 in Tesco and £20.99 in Argos.

My son is only 5 months old but with thinking ahead to Christmas and the fact that all kids love Thomas at some point, I will be grabbing one of these myself.

These are suitable for children aged 12 months and over. Let’s face it, they love scooting about the house on these kind of toys. It is suitable for outside also.

It’s made of plastic which means it’s easy to clean. I will warn you it does have a squeaker horn which your little infant will love but you will hate. As you know, the noisy toys are the best.

The seat opens for your little treasures to store the things they have pinched out of your handbag, when you weren’t looking. Apparently, these have an anti-tip feature at the front and back. I am doubtful how effective that will be with a boisterous tot though.

You do get free delivery with Amazon when you spend over £10 and this is just short of the threshold. Did I mention Amazon sell confectionery? Why not treat yourself to something a little naughty to make your order up to £10? Like these Italian chocolate hearts*
