Marvel Heroes & Disney Princess Sets Reduced @ The Disney Store

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 18 November, 2014 at 8:23 pm

Marvel Heroes & Disney Princess Sets Reduced @ The Disney StoreRemember last night we told you that the Disney Store has 24% off a range of toys today? Well, there's only just under 4 hours left on that sale, and if you haven't yet, you should check it out. Particularly have a look at the Marvel Heroes and Disney Princes sets below.  Use the code TOYSTUESDAY for your 24% off.

The Marvel set "unleashes six mighty Marvel figures onto playtimes". Part of the Titan Hero Series, this one comes with posable figures of Wolverine, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man and Spider-Man. It was £80 and is now down to £60 and with the voucher code it's £45.60. You'll need to add another £4.95 for delivery though.

As for the Disney Princesses, it's a whopper of a set, and comes with all 11 princesses in one go. "Each Princess is lovingly detailed and with realistic hair, and wears a classic film outfit finished with shimmering glitter." The dolls are currently reduced to £82.50 from £110, but with the code they're yours for £62.70, which means delivery is free too.

I can't speak for anyone else, but in my house all the dolls would be undressed in five minutes flat, but the kids would love playing with them for sure.

Half Price Wooden Advent Calendars @ Museum Selection

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 18 November, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Half Price Wooden Advent Calendars @ Museum SelectionMuseum Selection has a sale on wooden advent calendars at the moment, with Santa's sleigh going for £14.99 and the Nutcracker for £12.99 and a musical Advent Tree for £7.99. Delivery is a little steep at £4.99, but those specific items are still cheaper here with delivery. Also, if you sign up to the newsletter, you get 10% off your first order.

Along with the advent calendars, there's also lovely decorations, perfect for those pieces you love just a little more.

I know you can pick up a 99p advent calendar pretty much anywhere, but there's something magical about having certain things the same, Christmas after Christmas. Tradition just adds to the whole thing and makes it that little bit more special.

We have a beautiful string advent calendar that gets used every year for our Advent 'activities' calendar, and a Santa's workshop pop up book - when they come out, you know it's Christmas.

These items from Museum Selection are like that, I think. Something that brings the magic of Christmas, year after  year.

8 Animal Masks £1.96 Delivered @ eBay

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 17 November, 2014 at 10:02 pm

8 Animal Masks £1.96 Delivered @ eBay Aw, we just love these animal masks from eBay at £1.96 for a set of 8. The delivery on them is free, so it's a bargain all round, really.

If your kids love dressing up as much as mine do, you'll know that masks and accessories never go wrong in the dress up kit. These should make nice little stocking fillers too, and you can spend Boxing day chasing animals around the zoo your home is inevitably going to turn into anyway.

There are 8 masks in this set, though it seems they may differ from what you see in the picture.

There's not a huge amount more to say about them but for the price you can't really go wrong, can you?

Kids Clothes & Accessories From £1.50 @ Debenhams

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 17 November, 2014 at 7:43 pm

Kids Clothes & Accessories From £1.50  @ DebenhamsDebenhams is currently offering up to 70% off kids clothes and accessories, which means you can pick up some fantastic bargains from £1.50. There's free pick up in store, or delivery is available from £3.99 unless you spend over £30, then its free.

Whether you're shopping for clothes for the Christmas box, or something nice for the kids to wear to a Christmas or New Year's Eve party, or even if you're just looking to top up their wardrobes, with prices starting at £1.50 now's a great time to visit Debenhams.

Not just clothes, but there's accessories too, and I'm thinking that the little 'Friends Forever' necklace set could be a nice gift for my daughter's little bestie - not bad for £4, and I know she'd love and feel like a princess in that £3.50 alice band.

Clothes-wise there's a lot there for summer wear, but some of it is easily versatile with a pair of tights and a jumper, so again, great for emergency topping up if the kids decide to growth spurt just before things get really manic. Mine don't seem to stop.

Furreal Friends Puppy £25 @ Amazon (Expired) Amazon are selling the Furreal Friends Puppy - Furreal Friends Get Up and Gogo My Walking Pup Set - for £25.  The price includes free delivery too, and well, this is an amazing price. It's over £50 at Tesco, and over £60 elsewhere.

The Hasbro Adorable Get Up and GoGo My Walkin Pup Pet is your very own pup to take on walks and more. She comes with a leash so you can take her for a walk, and if you pet her head she'll sit for you.
When you talk to her she'll bark back with sweet ruffs and other puppy sounds too and her tail wags and her head even tilts to show showing off her own little personality.
The box contains the puppy and instructions on how to care for him or her,  which we figure will be a lot easier than a real pet!

Free! Elf Yourself Christmas Video

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 16 November, 2014 at 7:59 pm

Free! Elf Yourself Christmas VideoAfter last year's success Elf Yourself is back again this year, and with new video options to choose from.

To make your own Elf Christmas e-card, you can add a picture of up to five people, either from the webcam, Facebook, or photos from your computer - or you can add up to five of yourself for a totally freaky look.

You then choose your music style, and with it the dance style and video, and when you've (inevitably killed half an hour looking through them all and then) chosen one, you can download your video to keep for posterity, as well as share it on all the usual social media channels.

It's kind of cute though. Friends of ours did it last year and I still remember it... so it's a way to stand out, for sure.

Jake And The Neverland Pirates Anchor T-Shirt £1.99 @ Argos

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 16 November, 2014 at 7:35 pm

Jake And The Neverland Pirates Anchor T-Shirt £1.99 @ ArgosArgos have reduced the price of the Jake and the Neverland Pirates T-Shirt to £1.99, down from £3.99. It's not available for delivery, but needs to be collected only, and you'll need to check stock - it's available at 3 of the 5 stores around me, then not for about 15 miles again, so it's a bit hit and miss, as is often the case with Argos.

For fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, this would quickly become a much loved item of clothing and at the price it's worth having spares too.

The t-shirt comes in sizes for 18 months to 5 years, but just note that this is one of those that has different product numbers for different sizes.

Like I said, the sizes and availability are a bit hit and miss, but you know if you're looking for one, you'll be happy to nab it at this price.

Thanks for the email, Karen!

Voyager 7" Twin Screen In Car Portable DVD Player £59.99 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 15 November, 2014 at 10:13 pm

Voyager 7" Twin Screen In Car Portable DVD Player £59.99 @ AmazonAmazon have reduced the Voyager 7 inch Twin Screen In Car Portable DVD Player with Easy Fit Mount to £59.99 from £119.99. It's currently £99.99 at Maplin and £86 from eBay, so it's a great price.

I always swore we wouldn't have DVD players in the car - it looks so antisocial when you drive past a family all plugged in to their own tech - but since having kids I've found that actually, especially with late afternoon drives, giving them each a Kindle to make sure they stay awake is soooooo worth it come bed time.

The new Voyager 7 PM, twin screen portable DVD player system, is an all new slim-line design, vivid 7" widescreen display and patented car mounting system make it the perfect solution to keeping the kids happy in the car. The 7" tablet style DVD player can be used on it's own or both screens can be linked together using the supplied cable to share a movie.

The entire system can be installed and ready for use in less than a minute, without any need for tools which is useful, then all you need to do is insert your DVD and you're on your way. 

Cute and Easy Crafts for Kids £4.99 @ Amazon

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 15 November, 2014 at 9:53 pm

Cute and Easy Crafts for Kids  £4.99 @ AmazonDo you remember a few years back, in the early days of PlayPennies, we used to have a regular craft feature from Maggy at Red Ted Art. She released a book full of gorgeous art and craft projects since, and right not it's reduced to £4.99 at Amazon.  This should make a lovely gift for anyone who works with children, or those who need a little inspiration for crafty sessions with household items like toilet roll inserts.

Using recycled materials and bits and bobs collected when out and about, there are over 60 utterly irresistible things to make with your kids.

From adorable peanut shell finger puppets to walnut babies, loo roll marionettes and egg carton fairy lights, fabric mache bowls, stick men and shell crabs, stone people, and many more, these are projects for all the family to have fun with. And what's more, the end results are so cute and desirable that they look great around the home, or make wonderfully unique and personal gifts.

Christmas Midi Dress £10.99 @ Wowcher

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 15 November, 2014 at 9:38 pm

Christmas Midi Dress £10.99 @ WowcherIf Christmas jumpers aren't your thing, you may prefer the Christmas Midi Dress which is currently £7 at Wowcher. Add the £3.99 delivery fee and the dress is £10.99 delivered.

I've never really been into seasonal clothing myself, but I know they're really big this time of year among the rest of the world. I would be much more inclined to go for a dress than a jumper myself and think these are quite unique and different.

Available in sizes 8 - 10 or 12 - 14, you can choose up to two dresses from the 9 festive designs available.

These midi length dresses are sleeveless with a polo neck and make a great alternative to the Christmas jumper if that's not really your thing.

You buy the voucher now, but will need to redeem the dress by December 1st, and you'll need to allow up to 10 working days for delivery.

Heads Up: Paw Patrol Coming To Smyths

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 15 November, 2014 at 9:15 pm

Heads Up: Paw Patrol Coming To SmythsIf you've been  hoping to get your hands on some of the Paw Patrol toys this Christmas, it looks like they'll be in stock at Smyths from the 5th of December.

Starting at £4.99 for a range of Paw Patrol racers, these racers have real working wheels for push and play action.

The Paw Patrol Plush Pup Pals will be coming in at £9.99 each, and these 8" pups come in 7 characters including Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Skye, Rocky, Zuma and Ryde. Unfortunately it seems which one you get will be luck of the draw as you wont be able to choose.

On the pricier end of the scale, you'll find the Paw Patrol On-A-Roll Vehicle Marshall for £24.99, a doghouse that turns into a fire truck - perfect for those emergency fires that come up from time to time. There's also the big play set - Paw Patrol Lookout for £44.99.  This playset has  a real working periscope to search the surrounding area for danger, a wrap around slide and a lift.

Get over to Smyths first thing on the 5th though, as from what we hear, these are highly sought after for Christmas, and won't stay around for too long.

Bird All Over Print Dress And Tights Set £4.50 @ Next

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 15 November, 2014 at 8:38 pm

Bird All Over Print Dress And Tights Set £4.50 @ NextNext has further reductions on clothes, and one of the items is this lovely Bird all over print dress and tight set for £4.50.

This is a great price for a brand new kids set, and it's currently still available in sizes up to 1 month, up to 3 months, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, 12-18 months.

This is quite a classic cut for a baby, I think, and makes for a lovely little outfit for a little girl.

There's also a bunny cardigan for £4, which while not matching is still a great price for a little Winter warmer.

Delivery from Next is £3.99 or you can collect in store for free.

Disney Sofia Royal Castle £39 @ Debenhams

by Luschka van Onselen in Deals on 14 November, 2014 at 10:18 pm

Disney Sofia Royal Castle £39 @ DebenhamsThe Disney Sofia Royal Castle currently has £26 off at Debenhams and is reduced to £39. Fans of the young princess will love this set. click and collect is free but so is delivery on this one.

Disney's Sofia kind of came out of nowhere for me - she didn't exist, then one day my daughter was rabbiting on about her and next thing you know, she's everywhere.

And on top of that, she now has a Royal Castle too. This castle is currently £55 - £60 everywhere else, so it seems a good deal to us.

Included in this set is the castle as well as Sofia and Clover figures. It arrives unassembled, so you have to build it yourself.

I'm pretty sure this will make a lovely gift for little ones come Christmas morning.

  • Discount: 20%
  • Discount Code: NOV20

We've been in the woods twice this week, grabbing shelter from the rain under the trees, with the result that my youngest had a boot full of water on the first day and we had to wait three days for them to dry out so we could head into the forest again. A pair of boots for £7.20 would definitely be worth it!

There are boys and girls wellies, and a lot of unisex varieties too. Sizes are limited in some varieties, but for the most party you should be able to get something you - or your little ones, in this case - like.

For this and other codes from Millets, check our voucher page!
