Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

A playard is pretty much a must-have with a baby and toddler. It seems they’ve changed the name from play pen, maybe because that sounded a little restrictive for the child. Right now, Toys R Us has the Chicco Lullaby playard on sale for $199.98, with a regular price of $269.99. On top of that, they have a buy one, get one 50% off on all clearance items, including this one. There is a limit of one per customer on this playard, so you can’t buy two and get the second 50% off, but you can see what other items you might need from the clearance section for 50% off.

If you are a new parent, you might think a playard is a frivolous item, but you would not be correct. I loved having mine on the main floor, where I used it for diaper changes, naps when I wanted to be around the baby, and eventually to keep him safe while I did a few things and he wanted to crawl up the bookshelves. Obviously, you don’t want to keep baby in the playard all day, but there are many instances (like whn you have to cook dinner) when you need him/her safe and contained.

A playard is also important for when you’ll be going on road trips and want to make sure your baby is sleeping safely. You really can’t count on those hotel cribs. We also took ours camping so my baby wasn’t crawling around in the dirt all the time.

This playard is a lot more deluxe than the one I had ten years ago and mine was considered deluxe then. It has an incorporated elevated bassinet and change table. There are toys that go with the bassinet or can be taken off to use as a play mat. It also has added features like music, vibration and a nightlight. I also like that it has a push-button folding mechanism before for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to get my playard down and back up again. It also has wheels so you can cart it around very easily.

When I researched around, I found this playard selling for $280 at Snugglebugz.

For your second item, I’d suggest another high-priced item, like the high chairs or strollers on sale. When I added the BabyHome Eat high chair to my cart, it came down to $84.99, from a regular price of $189.98.

Shipping for these large items won’t be free, but you’ll get a $10 discount and for both items, I had shipping at a total of $13 in my cart.

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 10:32 AM

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Having a new baby or know someone who is? This deal from Best Buy is perfect for any new parent who needs this important staple for the nursery. Get the Sealy Baby posturpedic crib mattress from Best Buy, with a regular price of $169.99, now only $99.99 and free shipping.

I actually know a few people having a new baby. One friend is having her first, another her fifth. Either way, both need a new crib mattress for the new crib. I think this is a great deal and I’m going to stress the importance of getting a high quality mattress for baby. The first reason is that you want your baby to be comfortable. I bought a mattress once at Walmart super cheap and it showed. There was a spring sticking into my poor little man’s back, so we got him a new one. The second reason is that you want baby to sleep in his/her crib, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. Sealy is a popular brand name in mattresses, so you know you are going to get quality.

This mattress has even won awards, which says a lot! It has a coil system that adapts to the movements of your baby with firm support. You want firm support, especially in the early months, as baby can’t really lift his/her head and you don’t want their face squished into the mattress. But, saying that, this mattress is also plush for comfort.

It is Greenguard certified, which means that it has low chemical emissions. New babies are like sponges from their environment, so this is a nice feature, but I’d also suggest setting up the mattress a few months in advance so it off-gases before baby sleeps there.

There are good reviews and one that seems like the reviewer got a defective mattress.

The previous week my daughter was waking up every day around 11 pm, crying. When we changed the mattress she woke up for a little bit the first night, but she stopped doing that. I don’t know if the mattress made any difference, I just know she needed something firm with more support.

I shopped around and found this is the best deal around. Snugglebugz sells this mattress for $190. Toys R Us sells it for $170.

Best Buy offers free shipping on $25, so this item will also come straight to your door without extra fees.

In-Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes – Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 5:02 PM

In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

No joke, I had been waiting for Huggies wipes to go on sale at Costco for a couple of months now and I’m so happy to see that they’re $6 off again that I’m probably going to buy 5 boxes! Usually priced at $26.49, you can get a box of 1,160 Huggies Natural Care Plus wipes on sale for just $20.49. This offer is only in-stores.

Apparently these wipes went on sale in February but I have to admit that I missed that sale. Last time I saw these wipes get reduced by $6 last summer, if I remember correctly, and at that time, hubby thought I was crazy for getting 6 boxes. Luckily, my hoarding paid off because not only did we not have to worry about getting more wipes for more than half a year but we also saved $36! Every penny counts when you have a baby, especially a newborn. In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Do keep in mind that this offer in-stores only and you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of it. If you’re not a member, then you could always go with someone who is as any member is allowed to bring one non-member guest.

In a fit of desperation for more wipes, I bought that Kirkland Signature Tencel baby wipes that were discounted by $4.50, down to $23.49. Reading reviews online convinced me to get them but even discounted, it wasn’t as good of a deal as the reduced in priced Huggies ones.

Here’s a quick price comparison of the prices for each box:

  • 1,160 Huggies wipes @ $20.49 = $0.018
  • 900 Kirkland wipes @ $23.49 = $0.026 per wipe

So not only are the Huggies boxes a significantly better deal over the Kirkland ones but I also prefer them. The Huggies ones never dried out, while the Kirkland seem to quickly lose their wetness if the bag happens to be left open accidentally. I like that the Kirkland wipes are softer to the touch but since they’re slightly bigger than the Huggies ones, it made me wonder if maybe that was the reason for there being less wipes per box (900 instead of 1,160 or more).

Both brands are great but from a budget standpoint, there really isn’t any arguing with which brand is the most economical one. I believe that most Costco warehouses also currently has Frozen-themed boxes of Huggies wipes, which could be exciting if you have other kids who are currently obsessed with this Disney movie.

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Posted by on March 18, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Roots coupon codes are so rarely released nowadays that I thought I would let you know of their newest one: right now, you can use the code below to take advantage of a “buy one, get one 50% off” deal on all baby, kids or toddler merchandise.

Click here to shop for kids clothes @ Roots.com now

  • Coupon Code: MARCHBOGO
  • Discount: BOGO on all regularly-priced kids clothes
  • Expires: 23rd March 2015

Just like Joe Fresh, Roots Canada is one of those brands of clothing that is super comfy and long-lasting. With regards to kids’ clothing, you don’t necessarily need it to be long-lasting as they grow out of it so quick but if you’re hoping to have more kids or have someone else to pass it on to, then Roots is definitely one of those brands that is worth investing into, especially when you can take advantage of promotions like these.

I suspect that my daughter is still too little for the Irene full zip hoody but I’m thinking of getting it for her for later on as it’s just too adorable looking. Priced at $34, it features a drawstring at the waist and what I love it the most is that it’s 80% cotton, which means that it’s sure to be warm and long-lasting for sure.

Plus, they would match with the Irene sweatpant priced at $24. Both of these items come in a “dusty pink colour”. If you were to get both in one order, then the pants would drop down to just $12.50.

Now, the Roots coupon above won’t apply to already reduced merchandise but it’s worth checking out that section anyways as everything has currently been reduced by an additional 20%. Keep in mind that the prices you see in the sale section are the final ones and that they all of these items will be further discounted at checkout.

The Bridget check shirt for boys, for instance, was originally $44, is currently on sale for $21.87 and further drops down to just $17.50. It’s a red and black checkered shirt made entirely from cotton. It looks more of a winter kind of shirt to wear, so if you have a little boy, then you could get it for him to grow into for next winter.

Shipping is free on orders over $50.

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 16, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher Price Grow with Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Best Buy and Future Shop have discounted the Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair from $99.99 down to $59.99. As the high chair costs over $25, the Grow-with-Me chair will ship for free to your home.

There are several different colours of this high chair, but Best Buy and Future Shop only have the brown colourway discounted. I price compared with three other stores. Walmart Canada sells this high chair for $99.97. Sears Canada has two different Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair colours priced at $99.99 each. The only place I found as good a deal as the twins (BB & FS), is at Amazon Canada where the chair is also on sale for $59.99. It is the #1 bestseller in baby high chairs right now. However, only 10 are left in stock at Amazon.

Because of the bestselling rating on Amazon, and how little stock Amazon has left, I figured this was certainly a deal worth blogging about. I know that Future Shop and Best Buy will tell you whether stock falls below 20; thus, both the retail giants have ample stock right now.

Neither Future Shop nor Best Buy had reviews for the product, so I consulted Amazon. One reviewer was quite precise in what she wanted from a high chair:

Great high chair. I bought this one because it isn’t upholstered like a sofa. Seriously, what is with almost every other high chair. These things get slathered in food so I wanted one with minimal, easy to remove and wash padding. This chair is perfect for that and it is simple to use.

Other reviewers tend to like the high chair but find it narrower than others they have used. This makes the chair compact, but it can be hard to retrieve your flailing food sprinkler. Some reviewers thought it was perfect for babies, while others said it works better for toddlers.

There is an added bonus of shopping baby supplies at Future Shop and Best Buy right now. Get $25 off your next baby purchase of $50+ when you spend $100+ on baby and kids products right now. As the Baby Sale is going on, with up to 40% off baby supplies, this is an excellent time to be shopping for a new addition to the family.

Well.ca: Up to 45% Off Grobags & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 16, 2015 at 12:45 PM

Well.ca: Up to 45% Off Grobags & Free Shipping

Well.ca has is offering up to 45% off Grobags from The Gro Company. You stick your little one in these popular little bags. Many different sizes are available.

Grobags are this adorable little baby sleeping bags. Think of a blanket combined with a jumper that your little one wears instead of a traditional blanket. Each grobag has a neck opening and armholes so it can be worn. The bottom is closed in to keep your baby warm. You can pop open the grobag easily – the shoulder straps unfasten.

These bags are usually quite expensive! I looked back at previous sales on them to find grobags for $45 and a few other small deals, but nothing that takes your average baby sleeping bag into the $20-$30 range.

This Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Anorak Trundling Tractors was $60.49 and is now $33. The bag is designed for infants – age zero to six months. This Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 3.5 Tog Fly A Kite features the most beautiful print you could imagine. It would be great for babies of either sex and it looks really pretty too. The bag is on sale for the same price as the tractor bag.

Do you have a budget under $30? There are still a few good options! The Grobag Travel Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog (carnival print) is on sale from $49.99 down to $28. The travel grobags fit a five-point harness so your little one can be loaded into a pushchair or car seat while they nap. The Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog  is also a very good price. Originally $49.99, this grobag is on sale for $28.

For older babies, the prices are competitive. I found two bags priced in the $30 range for children 6 months to 18 months. First, the Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Rascal Raccoon was $59.99 and is now $33. This is a regular sleep bag with a cute print. For travelling, pick up the Grobag Travel Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Up & Away that was $54.99 and is now $34. This one is compatible with the five-point harness. Between these two grobags, you would have a bag for nap time, bed time, and travel time. Last time I blogged a deal for Grobags, Anna said:

These are fantastic, I used a few with my little girl.

There are many other bag designs to choose from in this sale. All sale grobags are $28 or more, thus they will all qualify for free shipping. Well.ca has free shipping on a $25 $29 minimum.

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 11:02 AM

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Baby, baby, baby oooh… grab some cheap baby clothes right now at Walmart but sizes are limited and are going fast. Select George onesies, pants and shirts are on clearance for just $2, from a regular price of $4 or more. As always, shipping is absolutely free.

My baby girl is growing so fast… *cries*. It’s great and it’s not but with regards to the latter, it’s not so great when her clothing suddenly stopping fitting her. I’m not a fan of overpaying for clothes, so clearances like these are just what I look for.

A bit of virtual digging is required for this clearance offer because sizes are limited but here’s an overview of the clothes that I picked up for my little girl:

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

I got the George Little Diva onesie, blue leggings, pink jogging pants and the greige ruffle runic — all for a grand total of $8 before tax. These purchases would have otherwise cost me $16 and even more with tax if they had been regularly-priced.

If your baby is under a year old or perhaps not even born yet, I suggest that you think ahead and maybe get a couple of sizes for them to grown into. Keep in mind the changing weather though as your little one wouldn’t necessarily need a long-sleeved top during the summer months. Plus, don’t forget that most babies need much bigger pants for their age as these tend to be on the shorter side.

For those of you with little boys, hurry up and get the “Girls Dig Me” shirt as it’s just too cute! It’s only available for sizes of up to 6 months and is also just $2!

Having to spend a set amount of money just to qualify for free shipping at most stores isn’t something I particularly enjoy and end up not buying anything anyways, so, the best part about clearances like these at Walmart is definitely the free shipping offer. You could pick up just one pair of pants or just one onesie for $2 and still have it shipped straight to your door at no extra cost.

JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag Was $90 | Now $54 & Free Shipping @ Well.ca

Posted by on March 13, 2015 at 1:52 PM

JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag Was $90 | Now $54 & Free Shipping @ Well.ca

Well.ca has a great price on the JJ Cole Satchel diaper bag on sale right now. This bag was $90 but is now only $53.99. Free shipping is included in all orders over $25 at Well.ca and this item qualifies. Many more items are on sale up to 75% in their Warehouse Spring Blowout.

The first diaper bag I used with my daughter was a JJ Cole bag. I was impressed with the quality and durability. As a new parent, I stuffed that bag way too full on a daily basis. My JJ Cole bag held up to regular tossing, dropping and other abuse from both my husband and I for over a year before the lining eventually gave way and ripped.  We put that bag through a full durability test.

This Charcoal Infinity version should stand up equally well to the daily wear and tear that any parent puts on a diaper bag. I like the print on this bag, having a little bit of a pattern helps keep your bag looking fresh. This bag has seven exterior pockets and four interior pockets. It also includes a bottle pocket, which also works as a sippy cup pocket or a water bottle pocket. Inside the bag is a diaper changing pad, straps to attach it to your stroller and a shoulder strap that is detachable.

Looking at the competition, this deal is spot on at Well.ca. If you were to purchase this from Babyrama Canada you will pay $69.99. You could pay $79.99 for this same diaper bag at Bed Bath and Beyond Canada. For the same bag at Amazon.ca you will pay $83.78. Your best bet is to buy this at Well.ca.

No reviews are on Well.ca for this bag. Over at Amazon, buyers seem very happy including this reviewer who can fit enough supplies for two kids in this bag.

I did find some other deals at the Well.ca sale. Standard shipping at Well.ca is $5.95, which means it is much better to buy these smaller items as part of a larger order that totals $25 or more and qualify for free shipping. The good news is if you are buying the diaper bag, these low priced items are great to throw in your bag as the cherry on top.

This deal is set to last through the weekend, but the stock looks limited. You may want to grab your deals before the stock is gone.

Amazon.ca: Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Portable Potty Was $25 | Now $13 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 3:17 PM

Amazon.ca: Fisher Price 2 in 1 Portable Potty Was $25 | Now $13 (FS @ $25)

You have a baby and suddenly you do not have any money to spare. If this sounds like you, then check out the Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Portable Potty. It is on sale from $24.99 down to $12.60. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Just a warning, the initial description right under the price is not for this item – it is an error. However, you can read further down where the specs are given for this unit. This travel potty features a folding ring that fits into a discreet tote. This way you can take it along when you travel and use it in public restrooms. The seat legs also fold down for easy storage. Three standard size (four gallon) waste bags are included with potty. There is also a splashguard to help boys keep it in the toilet. Ideal for potty training away from home, this is a convenient and inexpensive portable potty.

Reviewers are somewhat divided on the potty – but most the reviews on Amazon.COM are positive. This one reviewer was ecstatic at how multi-purpose this seat was:

Another great feature is that the seat is a dual use seat for travel, topping standard sized potties found in public restrooms. We haven’t used it anywhere public yet, but did try it on our home toilet & it worked great

Other reviewers have complained that the seat is too large, but it is designed to fit on a standard size toilet as well. Another reviewer liked the size of the seat as it works well for older kids.

Another reviewer was happy about convenience. They do not have to worry about going to a playground or park without convenient washrooms. She can just set it up in the back of her SUV without issues. The reviewer said:

This portable potty has become my new best potty training friend… I also appreciate that I can use almost any plastic bag for this, and the top seat doubles as a public restroom seat. Super user friendly!

You will not need to buy any special bags for this as it works with a variety of bags.

I could not find this potty anywhere else in Canada. However, most places in the USA had the potty for $19.98 US up to $24.98 US. The cheapest potty (any brand) on Walmart Canada is still $15 and it is not terribly portable. For $13, I think this is a great investment.

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Baby’s First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 10:06 PM

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Babys First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Best Buy Canada is offering 50% off Baby’s First bumper sets and mobiles. Orders of $25 or more will ship to your home for free.

Mobiles

First off, let us look at some precious mobiles for your baby. The Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Safari was $39.99 and is now on sale for $19.99. This adorable mobile will fit on most cribs and cradles. The safari mobile plays a Brahms’ lullaby while your little one watches the cute little safari animals. A lion, elephant, giraffe, and a monkey swing from the mobile.

Secondly, the Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Owl Swing is on sale from $49.99 down to $24.99. I love the colour scheme of blue and yellow on this mobile and think it is my favourite of the two. The mobile plays a Brahm lullaby and your wee one will enjoy the owl and birds above.

Bumper Sets

Bumper sets come in matching colours and patterns to the above two mobiles! The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Safari is an excellent match for the mobile above and will really tie your baby’s room together. Originally $39.99, the safari bumper set is on sale for $19.99.

As you might expect, there is also a sale bumper set to match the gorgeous owls. The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Owl Swing was $59.99 and is now on sale for $29.99. The pastel yellow and blue colour is carried throughout the bumpers.

You will probably want to buy a set. The safari set is the least expensive – coming to $39.98 for the set. However, you want a set that you will like looking at for a couple years, so the owl set might match your tastes for. That set, when put together, costs just a bit more at $54.98.

This is part of a larger sale on Baby’s First items. There are many items on sale but these were the best deals. If you are looking for other matching pieces, be sure to check out the rest of the sale. Purchase sheets, bedding, crib sets, and more.

I tried price comparing these items with other retailers. I found a pink version of the Safari at Sears Canada for $39.99. I found bumper sets by Baby’s First for $34.97 at Walmart Canada. Overall, I am quite pleased with this deal and hope our Moosers love it.

Thanks to FeliciaC for posting this deal on our forum.

Amazon Canada: ErgoBaby Designer Series Carrier Was $150 | Now $110 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 9, 2015 at 9:53 AM

Amazon Canada: ErgoBaby Designer Series Carrier Was $150 | Now $110 & Free Shipping

Having a baby soon or need a shower gift? I’ve got a great deal for you from Amazon on the Ergobaby Designer Series Christy Turlington Burns carrier in Umba. Regularly $150, it is selling for $109.95 and you’ll also get free shipping.

Having a carrier for your baby is probably more important than having a stroller. I have friends who swear by the Ergo carrier, and one of the best things about them is that they are gorgeous carriers. While I had a Baby Bjorn, it was kind of boring. It also didn’t have the ergonomic features that the ErgoBaby ones have, and it probably would have helped my back!

Because it looks like Amazon screwed up on the description of this item and actually has the description of a frame, I went right to the source and got you some details from the ErgoBaby website. Don’t worry, your carrier won’t just hold a 5×7 photo.

This particular carrier is part of the Designer series, but it looks like it is the original style. The original is actually award winning and has padded shoulder straps and waistband. It is that waistband that the Baby Bjorn didn’t have that I would have more than appreciated. Also, the padding looks a lot more deluxe than what I was used. It also has a hood, which keeps baby’s head comfortable when they are small or are napping.

I also like that it distributes the weight to you between your shoulders and hips so not just one area takes the load. You can also wear it in different carry positions, even when you are pregnant! I read the Why Ergo on that site, and I think this could convince you as well.

As you can see on that site, the originals that aren’t even in the designer series sell for a minimum of $115 and that is in U.S. dollars plus shipping. As for selling in Canada, I didn’t find the designer series selling at many other stores, but at ByNature it sells without the designer collection for $140. The original also sells at Baby Style for $130. I did find the exact model at Tadpoles and Butterflies for $150.

If you are curious about this particular pattern, it is actually a great story. As you might know, Christy Turlington Burns is a former supermodel who started the Every Mother Counts initiative. The pattern was actually created by a mother in Togo using wooden blocks. What a great story your carrier also comes with!

Toys R Us Canada: 25% Off Bruin Activity Cube With Bead Maze – Now Just $24.47

Posted by on March 8, 2015 at 7:30 PM

Toys R Us Canada: 25% Off Bruin Activity Cube With Bead Maze   Now Just $24.47

Ever since seeing an amazing activity cube at the mall, I have been searching high and lo for an affordable cube for my little one. They’re all quite pricey but just now, I found the Bruin activity cube with a bead maze on sale for just $24.95 at Toys R Us. It’s regularly priced at $36.99.

Activity cubes are noteworthy for being very expensive, with most being around $100. The Imaginarium cube, for instance, is also currently on sale at Toys R Us for a whopping $89.99! But if your budget isn’t quite so broad, then the Bruin activity cube is definitely a great alternative.

It doesn’t have any reviews but it looks like it could keep a baby entertained for long enough for you to be able to get some household chores done and perhaps even whip up a quick healthy meal.

Described as a “2 in 1 bucket”, this cube can actually be disassembled to form either a cube or carpet with a number of activities like blocks that need to be inserted in the designated slots, gears that need to be turned, beads that need to be slid, etc.

Shipping

The only downside to this deal is that if you only get the cube, then you will be $0.53 away from free shipping. So you can either pick up this cube in-stores if your local Toys R Us has it in stock or you could get a cheap filler items to reach the free shipping minimum threshold. The deals section is a great place to check for more discount. For instance, there is currently up to 50% off to be had on select everyday items like gates, feeding chairs, towels, etc.

In terms of filler items, I found the Aleva Naturals sleep easy baby wash on sale for just $1.47 (reg. $1.99). It’s a great item to pick up if you’re not quite sure which baby wash to go with yet. In fact, it’s one that I use to wash my baby as the smell of lavender is very soothing.

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

Posted by on March 6, 2015 at 11:42 AM

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

Futureshop has a great deal today on the Safety First Temporal No-Touch Thermometer. This thermometer was $69.99, but is now only $34.99. Free shipping is available with all orders that reach a minimum of $25, and would include this product.

When the kids are sick it seems that accomplishing any task is much harder. If you have ever tried to take the temperature of a child, you know that it is sometimes not an easy task. Technology is helping parents out with  the Safety First Temporal No-Touch Thermometer. This thermometer allows you to take a temperature by placing the thermometer near your child’s temple. If you have a particularly spirited child, the ability to have a reading without the thermometer touching your child’s skin may save a lot of frustration. You can also take their temperature while they are sleeping and not disturb them.  This thermometer also includes a small fever indicator light and a fever chart. Save yourself the trouble of looking up what constitutes a temperature on your phone for the millionth time. This thermometer also comes with a one-year warranty.

You can also use this thermometer to find out the temperature of a variety of other liquids. I like the idea of being able to use this to check the bath water temperature. This would be particularly handy for a new parent or to hand off to the new babysitter. You can also check the temperature of your child’s food, including formula, to ensure it is just right.

You could pick up this thermometer @ Amazon.ca but you will pay $62.95. If you head over to Best Buy you would pay $69.99 for this same thermometer. Walmart has a similar multi-use thermometer called the Safety 1st VersaScan. This thermometer is  designed to take a reading in the ear and can also test liquids, but you will pay $49.97. Grab this deal at Future Shop instead.

On Future Shop’s website there is one review but no comments. The reviewer left a five star rating. Over on Best Buy’s page there are two four-star ratings and they both seem happy with this product. Here is one of the responses:

Safety 1st Temporal Thermometer Was $70 | Now $35 & Free Shipping @ Futureshop.ca (Expired)

I may just snap one of these up to replace my clunky thermometer. Mine never seems to get a proper reading. This would make a very thoughtful gift also.

Robeez Gracie White Mini Shoez Were $36 | Now $19.79 & Free Shipping @ Robeez

Pick up a sweet pair of Robeez Gracie White Mini Shoez for the little one in your life. These shoes were $36 but are now only $19.79. Apply a unique coupon code by following Robeez on social media or joining the e-mail list and save an extra 10%. Free shipping with no minimum is included for a limited time for the month of March with no promo code.

Are you looking for a sweet pair of baby shoes for spring? These white shiny Mary Janes will be perfect on your baby for any spring party, Easter event or to attend a wedding.

Robeez shoes have been around the baby circle for a while as a top product. Their soft bottomed shoes have been dubbed perfect for babies, pre-walkers and toddlers. The soft leather bottom allows children to grip the ground a little more as they walk and learn to balance. These shoes sure are as cute as they are functional. A pair like this would be perfect for a special occasion. The top of the shoe has a Velcro adjustable strap to keep them on your baby’s feet. These precious shoes look just like real Mary Janes! This pair is currently available in sizes 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 18-24 months.

Price comparing is not easy, as this pair of shoes is not sold many places right now. I found this same style shoe in black on Shoeme.ca for $29.95. I found these at a boutique shop called Enfant style for $23.35 but you will pay for shipping and sizing is only available in 3-6 months or 6-9 months sizes. A few other lesser known boutiques have these shoes online. I found that at the boutiques sizing is very limited, the price point is hitting around $25-$30 and you will pay for shipping.

In order to get the extra 10% off you will need to sign up for their mailing list. You may notice a baby that pops up on the right hand side of the screen when you go to Robeez website. Click the baby to generate your code. You can choose to sign up via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and a coupon code for 10% off will be automatically generated. Here is what the screen looks like to sign up and receive your code.

Robeez Gracie White Mini Shoez Were $36 | Now $19.79 & Free Shipping @ Robeez

Once you add the shoes and the code to your bag, the discounts are starting to look pretty good on these shoes. Here is what my cart currently looks like. The free shipping comes off automatically, no code needed.

Robeez Gracie White Mini Shoez Were $36 | Now $19.79 & Free Shipping @ Robeez

While the free shipping will last all month, I do not expect that these shoes will last very long. They are perfect for spring and the upcoming holiday. Grab your pair before they are gone.

Toys R Us: BabyBjorn Potty Chair Now $22.47 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Toys R Us: BabyBjorn Potty Chair Now $22.47 (FS @ $25)

Toys R Us has discounted the BabyBjorn Potty Chair in all colours from $44.95 down to $22.47. The company offers free shipping on orders of $25, but you can pick up in store for free on any order amount. I found several colours available at my local store, which is not very big, so I assume most stores will have these available for pickup.

You can choose from four colours right now, but not all colours are available for both shipping options. The green is available for free in-store pickup only. Both the blue and the red qualify for free home delivery on $25 or free in-store pickup. The white Baby Bjorn Potty Chair is available for shipping to your home only (no in store pickup).

I found this chair for various prices at other stores. At Future Shop and best Buy, the red potty retails for $30.98, the green for $35.98, and the rest of the colours cost more than that ($38 – $40). Shop.ca offers any colour BABYBJÖRN Potty Chair for $43.99. Lusso Baby sells the chairs for $39.95. While Bed, Bath & Beyond has a few chairs for $29.99, the extra shipping cost really makes the deal not as good. Now, Amazon Canada does have the same price for the red and blue chairs (other colours more expensive), but there is no option for free pickup. Overall, Toys R Us has the better deal and best selection.

Most parents really like this potty. It is good for boys and girls alike. With the high back, it supports your child’s body and the arm-like structures on the side are great for resting little arms. Some parents start training early, when balance is still an issue for their little one. This style works well. One parent said:

This is a simple, straightforward and well-designed classic potty. We’ve been using it successfully for more than a year, since our little one was 6 months old.

While there are no major bells and whistles on this unit, most parents found that an attractive design feature. It allows your child to concentrate on the business at hand rather than become interested in other stimuli.

Overall, I think this is an excellent deal on this potty. Many reviewers said the original price was expensive, so they wait until the potty goes on sale. Now is the time to buy!
