Disney Princess Dresses £9.99 @ Amazon

Disney Princess Dresses are now from only £9.99 at Amazon as one of their weekly deals. The costumes are made by Rubies but are official Disney merchandise. There's a total of nine to choose from so there's bound to be your child's favourite there.

You can choose from Jasmine*, Cinderella*, Sleeping Beauty*, Merida*, Tiana*, Belle*, Rapunzel*, Ariel* and Snow White*.

Each dress comes in three sizes small (3-4 years), medium (5-6 years) and large (7-8). These dresses are ideal for birthday parties, or for going down to the supermarket...why not? Your child can be sensible once they are older.

What better is there to dress up than as a Disney Princess? Disney have formed these classic ladies for our children to love and adore. Disney Princess is as popular as ever.

My personal favourite is Jasmine, since watching Aladdin when little I always wanted to be her. She is dark, mysterious and ballsy.

Grab your favourite as quick as possible because these will sell out!

Delivery is FREE when you spend £10 or more so just add something of 1p value or more like this 3 Mobile Sim Card*.

Peppa Pig Slipper Boots £3.99 @ Argos

Peppa Pig Slipper Boots £3.99 @ Argos

I hate when my kids run around the house in bare feet. We have laminate flooring throughout the house and it's cold on the little ones tootsies so I try my best to get them to wear slippers. Check out these Peppa Pig Slipper Boots reduced from £9.99 to just £3.99.

The Peppa Pig Slipper Boots are available in sizes 5 through to 9. They don't look too bulky. That's my pet hate, a lot of slippers for children are too cumbersome and can cause trips and falls.

They are pig and very fluffy and look like they will keep little feet very cosy. I actually have slippers that are very similar and they are heavenly to wear. I'd say the 5 star ratinf over on Argos for these suggests that these are super.

On to the front of these boot slippers are sparkly Peppa Pig motifs, and this alone should prompt your child to slip them on. Well we can hope.

You can reserve and collect the Peppa Pig Slipper Boots for FREE from you local Argos store and you don't have to pay until you are there. If you would prefer to have your slippers delivered then it costs £3.95.

Sale Items Now 5 for £3 in store @ Claires!

Claire's Accessories still have a sale online which has items at up to 75% off, but we have been told that in store you can get an even better offer.

If you are lucky enough to have Sale stock still left in your local branch of Claires, then on items that are less than £5 you can get 5 for £3! That works out at just 60p for each item!

The sale stock that is left in stores is going to vary an awful lot between branches, but you could grab an awful lot of things for very little money with this offer. It seems Claire's just want to get these last few bits and pieces out of their stores to make way for new stock, and at these prices we would be happy to help!

Jocelyn contacted us on Facebook to share her bargains. She bought ten items and she only had to pay £6. Before the sale this would have been nearer £60! 90% Off sounds like one of the best bargains you can get!

If you want to have a browse at the Online Sale* it's still on, but the 5 for £3 offer is in store only.

Thanks for sharing Jocelyn!

Personalised Nutella Jar £3.99 in store @ Selfridges

If you have a Selfridges store near you then how about this as a unique Valentines gift? You can get a jar of Nutella personalised with a name or message for £3.99!

Apparently this service was started for Christmas gifts, but was so successful, with over a quarter of a million jars being sold, that they have extended it for Valentines Day! Unfortunately this is in store only, you cannot order these online.

You have up to 9 characters to play with on your jar, and you can also use smiley's and other emojis, along with the name or message.

You can get these at the Food Halls in Selfridges in London, Birmingham, or from Exchange Square and Trafford Centre stores in Manchester.

I'm wondering if they will write "Hands Off!" on one for me, so that no one else eats it. What would you want written on yours?

 

Octonauts Octo Max Suit £14.99 @ Tesco Direct

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 27 January, 2015 at 5:22 pm

Octonauts Octo Max Suit £14.99 @ Tesco Direct

If your kids are Octonauts fans you will be chuffed to bits at the price of this toy, as it was was selling for £25 recently so to get the Octonauts Octo Max Suit for £14.99 is a fab bargain!

The Octonauts is a hugely popular kids TV programme on CBeebies, and the toys are getting pretty collectible, with children wanting to get the whole collection of vehicles, figures and sea creatures.

It's an underwater adventure series which teaches kids about all kinds of sea creatures and the environment, and the toys are great for kids aged 3 upwards.

For £14.99 you get the Octo Max suit, a Tweak figure, a gulper eel, and a carrot launcher with carrots! The suit's Octoalert button triggers sounds and lights too.

Just as a note, I have no idea why this particular character is included with the toy as it wasn't Tweak who uses the suit, but Dashi. As it happens, the episode is on CBeebies right now! There wasn't a carrot launcher either, so expect to have that pointed out to you by the toy's recipient!

Click and collect is free, or you can opt for Home Delivery for £3.

Baby Gifts from £5 @ Cath Kidston

Baby Gifts from £5 @ Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston always have some gorgeous baby goodies, but I try to restrict myself to looking at the Outlet section to pick up the cheaper prices. The stock levels are really up and down, and some of the items that were out of stock a few days ago are back in again, so these are what I could find for new babies.

I love the Tiny Trains Bunny In A Box*, which is reduced from £15 down to £5, and I think this would make a wonderful gift for a newborn or for a baby shower present.

The Mini Rubber Ducks Baby Jersey Gift Set*  and the Clifton Rose* design that Nada told us about is also back in stock, but I wouldn't expect that to last long! They are reduced from £28 to £10 so will fly out once more!

There are also two different Baby Teddy & Bib Gift Set down from £14 to £10, in Clifton Rose* and Rubber Ducks*.

The Rubber Ducks Bathtime Gift Set* with a hooded towel, wash mitt and rubber duck is half price at £14.

The Planes range has been reduced, with Bibs* now £4, the Baby Top* now £7, the Reversible Fluffy Gillet* now £10, and a reversible Quilted Baby Jacket* for £16.

There is also an especially beautiful Ballerina Baby Blanket, which was £55 (!) and is now a much more purse friendly £26. There is only one Baby Changing Bag* left in the Cath Kidston Outlet, and I don't think I can bring myself to tell you that it is any way a bargain as it is still £65!

Home delivery will add another £3.95 to your order unless you are spending over £50, or if you have a store nearby the Click and Collect service is free.

25% Off Cups, Beakers,Bath Time and more @ Nuby

25% Off Cups, Beakers,Bath Time and more @ Nuby

Right now Nuby are advertising 25% Off all Cups, Beakers and Bath Time in their online store, but when you start looking around the site it seems that there are reduction of around 25% on most things on the site! Nuby also offer Free Delivery on orders over £15, so it's a really good time to grab a few supplies and stock up!

Prices for cups start from £2.24, and bath time toys from £2.99 with a big variety of both on offer. There are also loads of other reductions on the site, and in the clearance there are bottle sets at a third off, with packs of 6 Nuby Bottles* reduced from £14.99 to £10, which is a fab price.

Nuby also sell weaning and feeding products, soothers, tableware, and health and skincare products online, so you could grab loads of baby and toddler bargains here.

I find their training cups really great for little ones, and have used them for both my children. I didn't know that you could buy replacement spouts and straws for their cups, and was replacing the whole cup when the spout showed signs of wear, but this way is much cheaper.

Should Breastfeeding Pictures Be Allowed On Facebook?

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 27 January, 2015 at 1:52 pm

Should Breastfeeding Pictures Be Allowed On Facebook?

It just about boggles my mind to think that anyone really has such a problem with the sight of a breastfeeding mother in this day and age, that they actually see fit to give her grief over her effort to keep her offspring alive. Seriously, what gives?

And yet Facebook is at it again with its over-zealous removal of breastfeeding pictures. Mother of two Kaya Wright this week had a picture of herself  breastfeeding her son removed from a Facebook group about - oh, the irony - breastfeeding. This follows news, as the Daily Mirror reports, that a bunch of mums have been told they cannot breastfeed their babies at an upcoming conference. About breastfeeding. Give me strength.

And this is hardly breaking news, but I read that Princess Michael of Kent recently described breastfeeding as  dreadful practice.

The Independent newspaper reports:

Princess Michael of Kent has helpfully waded into the debate to add that she finds the “dreadful practice” less than appealing – as does her nanny, apparently.

“I didn't breastfeed,” the royal mother-of-two is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying. “My nanny said it was disgusting.”

Clarifying her remarks via a statement from her publicist, Princess Michael has since added the far less inflammatory following:  “It's not something I would do in public but everyone has a free choice.”

As Cathy Bussey wrote in a piece for the  Telegraph last year, comments like this do little to help breastfeeding women overcome the sense of shame that seems to accompany milk supply for many mothers. She writes:

"I do not think this sense of shame is exclusive to me. I have heard women explain that they have chosen to breastfeed ‘because I’m not organised enough to sterilise bottles,’ or label their choice ‘purely financial – formula is so expensive!’ A friend confessed she almost felt she had to hide her decision to breastfeed from her work colleagues because the ‘earth mother’ image was so at odds with her collected, controlled, professional self. Or how about the passionate ‘attachment-focused’ mummy blogger who published photographs of herself tandem feeding her four-year-old and 18-month-old and confessed she disliked the snaps at first because they looked ‘immodest’."

All of which is to say that I was quietly cheered to see that a bunch of breastfeeding mums - also members of the group that Kaya Wright's picture was removed from - have decided to strike back by posting breastfeeding selfies all over Facebook. Nice work, Mamas!

What do you think? Should breastfeeding pics be allowed on Facebook? Why?

HEADS UP! Batman And Polly Pocket Kinder Surprise Easter Eggs £5 @ Tesco

HEADS UP! Batman And Polly Pocket Kinder Surprise Easter Eggs £5 @ Tesco

What's bigger than a giant Kinder Egg? NOTHING! That's why when these Batman and Polly Pocket Kinder Surprise Easter eggs were released last year people went daft and they sold out ever so quickly and showed up on eBay at silly prices. We now know that they are available in Tesco only at the moment and are £5 each.  They are available in store and online.

There's a choice of two: the Batman one is aimed at boys, but that doesn't mean a girl won't like it. I loved Batman when I was little, and the Polly Pocket is aimed at girls.

I know what you want to know... is the egg like a big Kinder egg, with the milk chocolate on the outside and the white lining inside. The answer is YES! My kids are going to love these and the novelty value is tremendous.

The toys inside looks like a big version of the crumby trash ones you get in the normal size eggs. How I hate those! They are bigger and are Batman or Polly Pocket so the kids will go daft for them.

These will be HUGE again this year so you really want to grab one sooner rather than later.

Spend £15 And Get £5 Off Yankee Candles (With Code) @ Clintons CardsYankee Candles are one of my pleasures in life, I know, I am sad but it's the truth. With a baby still in nappies, I don't want my house sticking of poop, so I like to light a Yankee, normally Pink Sands or Clean Cotton. They do the trick, the smell lasts beyond the time it's lit too. I am guessing I don't need to tell you how good they are, chances are you know yourself. Want £5 off when you spend £15 on them? Head over to Clintons Cards and use promo code SAVE5JW at the checkout to receive your discount. It works on anything not just Yankees.

Clean Cotton is one of Yankee Candles bestsellers, how do I know that? I watch QVC when Yankee Candles are on, yes sad again! Clean Cotton is currently Clintons Cards Fragrance of the Month, which means it's got 25% off. Buy any Clean Cotton item and not only will you be saving 25% off but you could get another discount of £5 if you spend £15.

For example: Buy the Clean Cotton Medium Jar* for £12.74 plus the Yankee Candle Clean Cotton Pk of 3 Car Fresheners* for £3.19. Use the promo code and get £5 off making your order total just £10.93.

Delivery is £3.49 which is a bit of a bummer but still works out a good deal.

Little Tikes Cozy Shopping Cart £23.86 Delivered @ Amazon

Little Tikes Cozy Shopping Cart £23.86 Delivered @ Amazon

This has to be one of the cutest things ever! The Little Tikes Cozy Shopping Cart is just £23.86 including FREE Super Saver delivery at Amazon.  If you have a second or third birthday present to buy then you really need to consider this. This normally sells at around £30, so to get it this cheap including delivery is a great deal.

The Little Tikes Cozy Shopping Cart is a shrunk down version of the popular classic ride-one toy. This has like a shopping trolley attachment on it and is very adorable indeed. Your child cannot ride in the front seat but can pop a wee teddy or doll in there for a ride.

This sort of thing is ideal for roleplay and I'd be tempted to take it to my local shop (Aldi) which is just two minutes away. Let your child push your shopping about and enjoy some playtime as you get your chores done.

They can of course just use it in the house to play shops. Whatever they do with it they will love it. It'll be fab for those warmer months where your tot can get out in the garden with it.

Reduced Onesies From £3 @ Asda George

Reduced Onesies From £3 @ Asda George

It's still pretty bitterly cold outside just now so make sure the kids are wrapped up warm in bed. One way to do that is to buy them a onesie. They keep the heat in so much better than two piece pyjamas. Asda George have reduced many of their onesies and whilst there are no obviously girly ones there's nothing to say that a little lady couldn't wear Spider-Man or Batman. Onesies start from just £3, so go take a look.

If your little one is a superhero fan then you are in luck, you might be interested in these: Spider-man* now £5, Batman* now £5, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles* now £4 and Ultimate Spider-man* now £4. There's a cool Tranformers Onesie* too for a fiver but I am pretty sure that doesn't fall under the superhero category.

There's lots of nice ones and are well worth the money. I especially like the micro-fleece ones as I find them to be soft for my sons' delicate skin and it is that bit warmer. Check out this Skull Onesie* for just £4.

You can Click and Collect your onesie order from you local Asda for FREE or pay £2.95 to have it delivered.

Should Adults Visiting Without Children Be Banned From Theme Parks/Attractions?

by Nada in Misc on 26 January, 2015 at 9:55 pm

 Should Adults Visiting Without Children Be Banned From Theme Parks/Attractions?

I was reading about a man with learning difficulties, who with his carer were refused entry to Legoland Discovery Centre due to child protection laws. I was really taken aback by this. Not because he has learning difficulties but because I never knew such rules existed in the United Kingdom. I decided to dig a bit further and found more and more cases like this.

I read about a man who was into Falconry and was refused entry to a park where he wished to birdwatch. Does an adult visiting a visitors attraction have to be assumed as a risk to children?

So let's address the issue of adults with lowered mental ages, why shouldn't they be allowed into such attractions? I cannot help but feel like this is outrageous especially when the person is accompanied with a carer.

I can see what the obvious attraction to a place where children are abundant would appeal to a paedophile but does that mean we tar all single adults with that brush? What about swimming pools, leisure centres, etc?

Do you think our children need to protected to the point of banning adults without children into such attractions, including those who have learning difficulties? Let us know what you think about this over at our Facebook.

Snuggle Pets J-Animals Junior £9.99 @ Argos

Snuggle Pets J-Animals Junior £9.99 @ Argos

Snuggle Pets products are never off the adverts on the kid's channels. Head over to Argos and get the Snuggle Pets J-Animals Junior is now only £9.99. These come in three different designs, but you cannot select which one you want, so you are best just telling the stock picker which one you want, which may involve sending them back to the warehouse. These were originally £24.99.

These might look right rather plump cuddly toys, and I guess you could use them for that but these can also fold out as a onesie with a hood.

I must admit these look very cuddly, snugly and cosy. I do love wearing a onesie but at 30 years old I do feel a bit daft in one. Choose from Dog, Zebra or Giraffe.

These are machine washable but I don't know if they are suitable for tumble drying. If it's made from fleecy material then it'll dry quickly without. From reading the reviews it looks like this would suit children aged 5-7 years old.

You can reserve and collect from your local Argos for FREE or pay £3.95 if you wish to have the Snuggle Pets J-Animals Junior delivered to your front door.
