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.

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!

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off *BUMP*

Posted by on March 2, 2015 at 11:11 AM

Costco Canada: Clearblue Fertility & Pregnancy Tests $10 Off *BUMP*

*BUMP! With spring approaching, that can only mean one thing: baby making time. I’ve bumped this awesome deal from Costco for all you baby-makers out there* I feel like everyone around me is pregnant or having babies. My baby days are most likely over, but I found this great deal for all the procreators out there. Costco has Clearblue fertility and pregnancy tests on for $10 off their already competitive prices.

If you are trying to get pregnant, you might want to consider a digital ovulation test. These are hugely helpful for people who might think they know when they ovulate, but don’t really know. I did use an ovulation predictor when I was trying to get pregnant the first time, but luckily for me, I didn’t need it as I got pregnant almost the first month I tried. I know others who aren’t so lucky and this could be a great tool. What it does is detect your LH surge, which is when you ovulate. This means that you are about to ovulate, which translates to getting in the bedroom, stat! I think it is most helpful to use also as data for when around you’ll ovulate each month. This product has fantastic reviews and this one gives me a little tear in my eye:

After many years and many different medical intervention that never resulted in a pregnancy, I decided to try these instead of the other opks I usually purchase, well, low and behold, I got pregnant, after 7 years…. I strongly recomment testing twice a day (AM & PM) this way, chances of missing your surge are minimal :).

There are 20 in the box, which means this will last you quite a while depending on how often you test. Costco’s price is $49.99, with a regular price of $60.99. As for price comparisons, Amazon sells this exact set for $47.99 from a secondary seller. Well.ca sells seven tests for $54.99, which is $7.86 a test compared to Costco’s price of $2.50 a test. That is a huge saving!

Once you’ve done the deed and want to find out if you are pregnant, get yourself a pregnancy test. The Clearblue digital pregnancy test with conception indicator is also on sale, now $38.99 with a regular price of $48.99 for three packs of two tests. This test won’t just tell you if you are pregnant, it will tell you how many weeks you are too. It is a very sensitive test too, which will tell you up to four days early in most cases. If you are anything like me, buying a two-pack (and more) is essential. When I first got pregnant with my oldest, I didn’t really believe it and ran out and bought three more tests. It is also useful if you test a little too early and need to test again, or if you aren’t pregnant this month. Well.ca sells one pack of the two tests for $24.99 and Walmart sells it for $13.77, which still make Costco’s bulk on sale price the best.

Shipping is also free.

Best Buy: $20 Off 2 Packs of Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes (480 each) – $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on February 25, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy: $20 Off 2 Packs of Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes (480 each)   $40 & Free Shipping  (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada is offering $20 off when you purchase two packs of Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes (480 count). The Alvera Bamboo Baby Wipes retail for $29.99 each, so when you purchase two packs they price comes down two for $39.99 or approximately $19.99 each.

I price compared this deal with other retailers. Best Buy’s sister store has the same offer on right now, so if Best Buy sells out then you can purchase them at Future Shop Canada instead.

As for other retailers, one box of 480 wipes costs $29.98 at Amazon Canada and $24.99 at Babies R Us Canada (free shipping at $25). Well.ca does not sell the 480 packs, but their 240 packs are $14.99. If you times that by two, it is essentially $29.98 for 480 wipes.

These baby wipes are made with unbleached organic bamboo. Bamboo is soft to the touch, so they will not agitate your baby’s skin. You may be surprised that these wipes are not white, but beige is the natural colour of bamboo fibres. Now, bamboo is an excellent material for wipes as it contains a natural anti-bacterial agent known as Bamboo Kun. It is also 100% biodegradable so your wipes are good for the environment as well.

Not only are these Aleva Naturals Bamboo Baby Wipes made of organic bamboo, they have also been treated with natural and organic oils. Your baby’s skin will enjoy organic aloe vera, certified organic chamomile oil, tea tree oil, natural lavender oil, and natural green tea extracts. Talk about a pampered bottom!

I was looking at reviews for these wipes, and they often get a 5/5 star review on the websites I was looking at. Parents, like the following reviewer, will only use these wipes:

Love these wipes, they smell amazing … can’t go back to the other ones anymore (they all smell fake now). They do a great job and don’t leave a rash on my baby’s delicate skin. Only drawback is there kind of expensive.

As these wipes are a bit expensive, it is nice to have a deal like this on when you can save on a couple large packs.

Now, if you are busy shopping for baby there is another deal you will want to use. Right now, you can get a BABYBJORN Safe Step for $5 (was $29.99) when you spend $100 or more on VIVA baby products.

Get free shipping on $25 or more.

Walmart Canada: Supergate III On Rollback For Just $20 & Free Shipping

Posted by on February 21, 2015 at 6:00 AM

Walmart Canada: Supergate III On Rollback For Just $20 & Free Shipping

Got a baby, kids or maybe even a dog? Then you need a gate! The Supergate III is currently on rollback at Walmart and can be yours for just $19.88 instead of its usual price of $29.94 — that’s 34% off!

Going, going, gone! That’s exactly how I feel now that my baby is crawling all over the place and cries as soon as I try to keep her entertained within a superyard in the living room. Having her crawling around is definitely great in of itself but sectioning certain areas would help to make my life as a mommy much easier but since I don’t exactly want to shell out loads of money on gates and baby products in general, getting them on rollback is the best way!

The Supergate III is a gate produced by North States in a vanilla colour. It can easily fit openings from 25.5″-42″ wide and is 26″ high.

As for a price comparison, I found this same gate at 2 others stores:

Reviews are largely mixed for it as well. Users either totally love it or totally hate it, so the fact that it’s currently on rollback is definitely a huge advantage, especially if you don’t have the biggest of budgets to spend on a gate. Here’s what a reviewer on Walmart had to say about it:

I bought the Supergate III and I am happy with it.

And here’s another review.

If you are trying to mount it- watch the YouTube video. Instructions are a little confusing. I put this gate up last night and its kinda hard for me to open let alone my kids (its for the dog). It only closes if its in a groove properly which is quite frustrating because my proper length is right in between. Good enough for the price but like others have said..spend the extra money if you can…

The YouTube video in question is the North States Supergate Classic, which clearly demonstrates how to install it.

If you don’t have a car or are just feeling lazy because of the cold and snow outside, then you will be happy that this gate will also be shipped absolutely free. That is a major advantage as getting large items can be a pain sometimes, even with a car.

Lug 18″ Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Posted by on February 13, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Staples.ca has a sweet little deal on the Lug 18” Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag today. This cute little bag was $106 but is now only $53. This item also includes free shipping. Here at Bargainmoose, we always check deals over and over before they go out. Our other blogger Eva, did not get the $53 sale price, although the rest of the team did. If you have troubles as well, let us know in the comments below!

Need a new bag to carry everything? Check out the Lug 18” Fitness and Overnight Bag. You can choose between a plum purple and a grass green colour at the sale price. I am digging the plum colour. I have more than one sweater in that deeper purple colour. The grass green is a nice bright spring colour, maybe I should mix it up a little more.

I think what strikes me most about this bag is how versatile it can be. They call it a fitness bag and from poking around it seems people are happy using that bag to go to the gym. This bag comes with a special pocket designed to hold your yoga mat. It also comes with a holder for your water bottle and even an extra pocket designed just for your rings. I always try to take my rings off before I head into the pool to protect them from the chlorine, so I love this feature.

This Lug bag has lots of pockets and room to store several changes of clothes. As suggested, it would be a handy little weekend bag for a getaway with all that extra room. The bag is also a big enough size that it can be used as a diaper bag. It has lots of pockets, a big luggage handle strap and room for your water bottle. Sounds like the perfect diaper bag to me. Since the bag is particularly roomy, it might be a nice choice if you have supplies for multiple kids to tote.

Here is what I found when I checked out prices on this bag around the web.

You can see from the prices at the competitors that this bag is a steal today at Staples.ca. Save yourself a few bucks and grab this multi-use Lug bag now.

I could not find anyone on a well-known website that had reviewed this bag in Canada, so I popped over to Amazon in the US. Many people seem to be talking about this bag over the border. It has 25 reviews and an average rating of four and a half stars out of five. Here is one happy reviewer explaining what they like about this Lug bag.

Lug 18 Cartwheel Fitness and Overnight Bag Was $106 Now $53 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Many of the items in the Staples Deals Centre are saying you have six or four days left to purchase the item. This Lug bag does not have that caveat. I suspect once the stock runs out of these bags, they are gone. If you like the bag, I would get it now while the deal is still on. Free shipping also comes with this deal.

Disney Baby Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother Was $53 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on February 5, 2015 at 9:45 AM

Disney Baby Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother Was $53 | Now $25 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

The Disney Baby Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother was $53, but is now only $25 @ Walmart.ca. Free shipping with no minimum is included every day at Walmart.ca.

Imagine it is time for everyone in the house to drift off to dreamland. The sun has set, the house is quiet and you are rocking a sweet bundle of toddler to sleep in your arms. Sounds like a nice scene until the sweet bundle starts screaming their lungs out at 2 am. When the wee hours of the morning hit, distraction techniques are your best friend for convincing your sweet angel that is bedtime.

Check out the Disney Baby Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother. This sweet baby, toddler and preschooler toy could be that distraction technique you need so your kid goes to sleep. The Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother toy is designed by a well-known company, Cloud B. Cloud B is an award winning company that has made many bedtime products for young children such as the Tranquil Turtle, The Sleep Sheep and the Twinkling Firefly Frog.

The Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother is similar to the famous Tranquil Turtle toy. With the push of a button, the Winnie The Pooh toy projects stars all over the ceiling and includes a sweet Mickey Mouse constellation as an extra bonus. My daughter has a tranquil turtle that she loves. She has spent many nights falling asleep while staring up at the stars. The Winnie the Pooh Dreamy Stars Soother switches the colour of the stars between blue and green at the push of a button. It also comes equipped with a 45-minute timer so it shuts itself off after your child falls asleep. This toy is intended to help your child ease any fears of the dark. I personally like that it gave my daughter something to focus on. I found that sometimes she needs something to fiddle with until she can relax enough to fall asleep.

I do not see this product for sale currently at any of the major retailers in Canada except Amazon.ca where it is listed for $73. A comparable product to purchase is the original Tranquil Turtle. The Tranquil Turtle will cost you $40 at Walmart. The same turtle will also cost you $40 @ Well.ca or Toys R Us.ca. $40 seems to be the base price at every major retailer right now, no matter what colour turtle you choose.

Avigayil blogged about a similar sound soother back in December, but this one has the starry night ability that the others don’t.

I might just grab this item and stash it away for a baby gift. I know how much my daughter enjoyed her turtle, and this Pooh Bear would work for a girl or a boy. Shipping is free at Walmart with no minimum, making it a great time to snag this deal before it is sold out.

Best Buy Canada: Baby Bjorn Active Front Carrier Was $180 | Now $70

Posted by on January 27, 2015 at 9:41 AM

Best Buy Canada: Baby Bjorn Active Front Carrier Was $180 | Now $70

If you are looking for a hot deal that is going to sell out quickly and you’ve got a new parent to buy for or are a new parent, check out this deal at Best Buy. Get the Baby Bjorn Active front carrier for $69.99, with a regular price of $179.99, and you’ll also get free shipping.

I’ve blogged about Baby Bjorn a few times when it has gone on sale at Best Buy, but the price has never been this low.

Baby Bjorn carriers are life-savers. When you have a newborn, you feel like all you do is sit on the couch and hold the baby, or walk the room while holding the baby. The baby loves to be held. You probably wonder how anyone gets anything done while holding a baby. Simple answer – they don’t. This is where the carrier comes in to play. You can do your dishes, make your dinner, do your grocery shopping, even vacuum your house with your baby in the carrier. It will be quite a workout, but think about all the post-baby weight you’ll lose lugging around an extra 10-20 pounds on your body each day.

I loved taking my toddlers for walks in the stroller, while carrying the baby in the carrier. I also liked to do groceries with him in the carrier as he got to see so much more than he would have in his car seat. I remember him kicking his pudgy legs when I’d hand him an orange to hold.

This carrier is a bit different from the basic one I had, as it includes lumbar support. I would have loved that as I have a weak back and it would have helped a lot.

It says there are limited quantities so I wouldn’t wait to get this as it could sell out quickly. The sale is also today only. Because it is over $25, it will ship to you for free.

50% Off Mamas & Papas Globe Magic Rocker @ Shop.ca – Now $200 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 24, 2015 at 6:00 PM

50% Off Mamas & Papas Globe Magic Rocker @ Shop.ca   Now $200 & Free Shipping

Prepping for a baby? The Mamas & Papas globe magic rocker is half off at Shop.ca right now. Instead of an eyebrow-raising price of $399.99, you can get it for just $199.53. Shipping is free as well.

I know that even a $200 price tag on a rocker can seem insane but I decided to blog it anyways because the discount is awesome and there is also the fact that Mamas & Papas is an incredibly renown and well-liked brand of baby products.

The prices on Mamas & Papas merchandise is known for being high but so is the quality threshold.

I have to admit that I was gifted a very basic chair for my baby and it has certainly done the job but I would most definitely have preferred this Mamas & Papas one because it looks absolutely comfortable. My baby has never fallen asleep in the chair we have but I’m sure she would have fallen asleep in a heartbeat in the magic rocker, especially since it’s a rocker in the true sense of the word. With two modes, it can rock the baby back and forth or side to side.

Two words to describe these two modes: pure heaven! Well I can only assume so anyways!

Here are some more notable features:

  • Light show when MAGIC card is inserted
  • MP3 compatible
  • Safety harness is secure and padded
  • Removable cover & head hugger (machine washable)

This rocker also has a lock feature that allows it to be locked into a stationery position. I’m particularly curious about this aspect because now that my baby is crawling and on the verge of walking, it has been absolutely impossible to place her in the chair we have. Even though we clip her in, she finds a way to wiggle out of it and I’m always scared that the chair will tip over when I’m not looking but a stationery lock would certainly fix that problem!

The fact that it’s MP3 compatible is also a great feature. Ours plays the same three songs over and over and over again… and let’s just that after a couple of months of hearing the same melody, we stopped turning ours on altogether.

Keep in mind that the required three C batteries aren’t included.

Canadian Freebie: 6 Free Window Coverings For Roll-Up Shades, Vertical Blinds, Draperies & More!

Posted by on January 21, 2015 at 7:00 AM

Canadian Freebie: 6 Free Window Coverings For Roll Up Shades, Vertical Blinds, Draperies & More!

Got a baby or are you expecting one? Then you’re going to want to make your blinds as safe as possible and luckily, Window Coverings is giving away as many as 6 different retrofit window coverings.

Once you click over to the Window Coverings site, all you need to do is click on “order free retrofit kits” from the menu at the top of the page. You will then be taken to FulltimeInnovations.com, which will allow you to order anywhere from one to six retrofit window coverings, depending on which ones you need.

Baby proofing is no joke. My little one is nearly nine months old and the time has definitely come for me to baby proof. Speaking of which, not too long ago, I wrote about a free safety latch starter kit from P&G and if you haven’t submitted your information yet, then make sure to do it now as well. It comes with 2 cupboard handle locks and 2 cupboard latches.

I have to admit that I didn’t fuss over the different styles of window coverings too much and just went ahead and ordered all of them because I figure that I could most likely either use them in the future or at least give them away to friends and family.

Essentially, you can choose between window coverings for:

  • bottom-up top-down styles (with a cord joiner device)
  • roman shade
  • roll-up type shades or roller blinds
  • miniblinds, pleated shaded or horizontal blinds purchases before 1995
  • miniblinds, pleated shaded or horizontal blinds purchases after 1995
  • vertical blinds & traverse-rod draperies

With the exception of the first one on the list, all of these may also be ordered up to five times each. This means that you could technically get as many as 26 freebies but let’s be honest, you most likely don’t even need that many!

Once you check out, you will be asked to enter your mailing information but don’t worry about the words “check out” as you won’t be asked to enter any form of payment. The Basic Window Cord Safety guide is always worth checking out on the Window Coverings site as they clearly outline what to look for with regard to blinds and draperies in order to keep children safe.

Disclaimer: these window coverings may not stop cats from ruining your blinds. However, they will keep babies and kids safe! Canadian Freebie: 6 Free Window Coverings For Roll Up Shades, Vertical Blinds, Draperies & More!

$70 Off Evenflo Triumph LX Convertible Car Seat @ Toys R Us Canada – Now $100

Posted by on January 17, 2015 at 5:00 PM

$70 Off Evenflo Triumph LX Convertible Car Seat @ Toys R Us Canada   Now $100

Have you been shopping around for a car seat? The Evenflo Triumph LX convertible car seat in on sale for just $99.97 at Toys R Us. It was originally priced at $169.99, which puts it at a $70 discount (over 40% off).

According to the description, it’s recommended to be used as rear-facing for up to 40lbs and forward facing for toddlers between 22 and 65lbs. This isn’t a recommendation I would follow too closely, except for using this car seat only until a maximum weight of 65lbs because my little one is 8 months, weighs 20lbs and yet is nowhere ready to be forward-facing as Transport Canada recommends keeping children rear facing as long as possible.

Here’s a review I found for it:

I ordered this two weeks ago from toys r us. I did so much research and went and looked at many car seats but honestly wasn’t impressed with any of the more expensive seats. I found them very awkward looking and not enough padding and cushion. When I saw the triumph on sale at toys r us I ordered one immediately. I love it, my husband loves it and most importantly my daughter loves it.

In short, it features:

  • Infinite harness slide adjustment (makes it easy to get child in/out)
  • 5-point hardness system
  • TensionRight knob at the side
  • ReclineRight: seat is adjustable to either an up or reclined position
  • Adjustable headrest
  • Pads and pillow are both removable and washable

As for a price comparison, the Evenflo Triumph LX is nearly $145 everywhere else. Sears is selling it for $144.49, while at Costco, it’s $149.99. Both websites also boast positive reviews for it, just like Toys R Us’ site. Here’s a review that someone posted on Costco’s site:

Bought this car seat for my grandson and we have been very happy with it. The seat is comfortable and plush great for long travel trips. It’s sturdy and easy to install. It fits in my small car with room for the front passenger to sit comfortably .

Since a $10 shipping discount is applied at checkout, you will only pay $8.62 to have it shipped straight to your home. It’s unavailable for in-store pickup.

I also found the Baby Trend EX Flex lock infant car seat on sale for $99.97, up from $149.99. It’s not a convertible car seat like the Evenflo but could be a great car seat to start out with as it’s good up to 22lbs.

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping – Now Just $255

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 12:15 PM

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping   Now Just $255

I was browsing around Amazon’s Deals Store and stumbled on a great deal on the Diono Olympia cat seat in shadow. Originally priced at $299.99, you can now get it for just $254.99, along with absolutely free shipping.

The Diono Olympia car seat is a convertible booster seat that can be used for up to 49.90kg (110lbs). It has a 5-point harness and has been NCAP crash tested.

Reading about the specs is great and all but it also has the reviews to prove its worth. There are 35 reviews with a general consensus of 4.5/5 stars with positive comments like this one:

Overall I love this seat. It is narrow, easy to get my child into and comfortable for her. It is quite heavy, but not impossible to carry. I almost bought the next model up, but after reading some reviews where kids hate their head supports in it, I decided on this. So happy I did. This is definitely the seat to buy once your child outgrows the infant carriers.

Don’t like the Diono Olympia in black? No worries, there are plenty more Diono car seats to save on:

  • Diono Olympia seat graphite in grey/black: was $299.99/ now $254.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat sunburst in orange/grey: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica sea graphite in grey/black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat shadow in black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Rainier seat shadow in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat glacier in blue/grey: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat graphite in grey/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat orchid in purple/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat houndstooth in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99

They all come with free shipping as well.

Just to give you an idea, I had a look around at Toys R Us’ site for Diono car seats and the cheapest one I found is the Diono RadianRXT on sale for $305.97 (reg. $359.99). It’s a different model from the ones being sold at Amazon right now but in comparing the specifications, they’re nearly identical with the main difference being that the RadianRXT holds less weight, has an included cup holder and can be folded flat. You’re basically paying more for the bells and the whistles but the safety of the seat remains unchanged.

The only Diono Pacifica car seat I found at Toys R Us is the one in shadow black and it’s currently regularly-priced at $339.99, whereas at Amazon, you can get it for just $288.99. Another point to mention about shopping for a car seat at Toys R Us is that unless you pick it up in-stores, you would need to pay shipping fees.

40% off! Graco Charleston Convertible Crib Was $288 Now $171 @ Walmart.ca

40% off! Graco Charleston Convertible Crib Was $288 Now $171 @ Walmart.ca

Walmart has placed the Graco Charleston Convertible Crib on clearance and you can save 40%. This multi-function crib was $288 and is now only $171. Included is free shipping with no minimum.

There is going to be a new baby in your life. Great news! We saw this crib featured at Walmart this year for Cyber Monday. If you missed it, you can steal this deal one last time before it is gone for your little bundle.

Convertible cribs have been hot on the market for some time now. Their functional design of turning the baby crib into first a toddler bed and then a full size bed is hard to resist. Furniture can be expensive and having a solid convertible crib can save you some cash as your kid transitions.

Reading through the stats on this crib, consumers are finding that there are a few inconsistencies when purchasing this crib. This crib is made of solid wood and comes with a walnut finish. At some point some representative made the mistake of calling the finish espresso, which it is not. This model is available elsewhere with an espresso (darker wood) finish and a much heftier price tag. It also does not come in white. This crib is only available in the walnut colour.

The crib also does not come with a guardrail when it converts into a toddler bed. This means on three sides the crib rails will surround your child but one long side will be open when you convert the bed to a toddler bed. A guardrail helps keep your child from rolling out of the bed as they learn to sleep in a bigger bed. It is typical to purchase a guardrail separately. Guardrails usually run around $50 to $100. This crib does not offer a matching wooden guardrail option. There are mesh temporary guard rails you can purchase that typically run around $25 and slide under the mattress that will do the job but will not match the bed frame.

Additionally, when converting this to a full size bed you will need to purchase a metal bed frame, which is also common with these cribs and run from about $65. In reality, the amount of time your child spends in the toddler bed is small for most, compared to what they will spend in a full size bed. The costs I have outlined above are normal extras for any convertible crib purchase.

Taking a look at other prices on the web for this crib, you are getting a great deal. I find it is uncommon for cribs that convert to go under $200.

  • $299 @ Sears.ca
  • $349 @ Shop.ca
  • $399 @ Canada’s Baby Store

Most people who understood about the guard rail and the colour they were receiving were happy with this crib. Here is one happy reviewer.

My daughter is 2 1/2, and we’ve had this crib since she was 3 months old. Easy to put together (as far as cribs go) and haven’t had any problems with it, aside from a few minor dents and scratches on the front. That can be prevented with a crib railing guard, we just didn’t get one.

This crib is a great value for your money, Bargainmoosers. When you factor in how much it costs to purchase a toddler bed and/or a full size bed a convertible crib is a good frugal solution. This convertible crib allows you to soar through all the stages in one quick swoop without dipping back in to your pocketbook very much.

Children’s Place Canada Boxing Sale Now Live: 50% Off Everything + EXTRA 30% Off Promo Code + Free Shipping!!

Posted by on December 23, 2014 at 10:15 PM

Childrens Place Canada Boxing Sale Now Live: 50% Off Everything + EXTRA 30% Off Promo Code + Free Shipping!!

Boxing Day is right around the corner and to celebrate, the Children’s Place have decided to launch their Boxing Day sale a couple of days earlier. Everything at their site is currently reduced by 50% off and you can also use the coupon code below to save an additional 30% off at checkout! Plus, shipping is also absolutely free!

Click here to shop the Boxing Day Sale @ ChildrensPlace.com now

  • Coupon Code: 30SAVE3
  • Discount: extra 30% off
  • Expiry: 27th December 2014

Although the Boxing Day sale excludes new arrivals and shoes, the code may be used on any order.

The Children’s Place is one of the main stores that I shop at for my little one and with due reason! Sales like these make it jaw-droppingly awesome to save because rather than telling yourself: “eeek, should I really pay this price for an outfit that my little one will outgrow within a week”, you end up instead with 10 outfits for the price of one!

Okay, slight exaggeration but sales like these do make it super fun to shop, especially if you enjoy seeing huge amounts of money saved. I must warn you, however, that their merchandise is getting sold out quickly, so it’s best to not wait and shop ASAP! To give you an idea, these super adorable dog cotton pjs are on sale for $7.99 ($19.95) and comes even further down to just $5.59 with the aforementioned coupon code. Just $5 for pjs? Yes please!

Christmas is already upon us but my suggestion would be to think about shopping ahead. Think about which sizes your kids will most likely need next Christmas and take advantage of this Boxing Day sale to score some awesome deals. This way, you won’t have to pay full-price for anything next year!

If you prefer to shop in-stores, then you could also print and bring this Children’s Place printable coupon to get your 30% discount. This could be particularly helpful if you’re a last minute shopper and have yet to get a Christmas gift or outfit for your little one.

There have been a couple of times that I set out to take advantage of a particular sale at the Children’s Place, only to be deterrent by their usual shipping fee. So the fact that their Boxing Day sale and the additional Children’s Place coupon code is in combination with the free shipping offer pushes the deal over the edge!

Amazon Canada: Ocean Wonders Aquarium Was $50 | Now $30

Amazon Canada: Ocean Wonders Aquarium Was $50 | Now $30

Looking for the perfect shower gift for an expecting family? The Fisher Price Ocean Wonders aquarium with remote control is now only $29.99 at Amazon, with a regular price of $49.99. I did notice that it was on sale for this price last week, but sold out quickly, so now is your chance to get it again during their Boxing Week sales.

I had an Ocean Wonders aquarium for my babies, although I got mine used at a garage sale and it didn’t really work as well and didn’t have a remote control, which would have been super handy. It is funny to say since my youngest is only four, but there are so many things I wished they’d had when my kids were babies.

What’s really great about this is that you can put your baby in the crib and turn this on and it is not so stimulating that they’ll get overexcited. In fact, my oldest son would watch this until he fell asleep, which made nap time so easy for me. My other two were a little harder than this to get to sleep, but this was a great tool for me to help him get to sleep without my assistance. It was also a good thing to have when you needed to put away laundry or do something where you needed to keep baby in their crib (like sleep), as it kept them happy for a while, and they stayed safe in the crib.

It plays songs, the fish swims, there are bubbles and some lights. You can choose what mode you want to put it on, as I would say, based on if you want them to fall asleep or if you just want to keep them entertained.

I shopped around and found this for $50 or more at all the major stores like Walmart and Toys R Us, so this is really a steal. Shipping will also be free.

Bought our first Fisher Price aquarium crib toy six years ago for our first grand child and continue to do so for each new one that comes along. These aquariums have changed somewhat over the years but baby’s fascination with them stays the same. Great toy.
