Reading Eggs: Exclusive 4-Week Free Trial & 25% Off Coupon

Reading Eggs: Exclusive 4 Week Free Trial & 25% Off Coupon

Hands down, one of the hardest things I’ve had to teach my kids is how to read. This is just behind getting them to sleep as infants and potty training. While there aren’t really apps or programs that help with those two, I can enlist help on the reading front. Reading Eggs is a program with games and other fun activities so kids don’t know they are learning in the process. We’ve managed to score you an exclusive four-week free trial, which you’ll see when you click the exclusive link below. When you are ready to purchase, we’ve also got an exclusive coupon for 25% off your one-year membership.

Click here for your free trial @ Readingeggs.com now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 31st December 2015

I have three boys of varying ages and so far I’ve tried this program with my seven-year-old who has been struggling with his reading. He used it yesterday and did like the games. What I did find is that he didn’t like it when it he got something wrong, because the software would simply say “no, like this”, which would make him feel like he wasn’t getting anything right. I did sit down with him a few times to show him exactly what to do.

Overall, I like that it tracks his work and I can see his progress through the lessons. There is a test at the beginning to figure out where the child is at what reading level. I have yet to try my four-year-old on the program and what I realized when I added a child to my free four-week trial was that it only gave him two weeks. What I would suggest is signing each kid up with a different email address so you get the four weeks for each child.

Lenny, a couponer who works for Bargainmoose, actually tried this program out before we got the exclusive trial and loves it for her four-year-old son. She said:

My son has only had the trial for a few days, and I have noticed a huge difference in his letters and word comprehension. He’s understanding the written version of numbers also. Its great!

Since we have this trial, it will give you time to realize if you love it before you buy it. If you do feel ready to buy it, use our exclusive coupon code to get 25% off and pay $51.75 instead of $69 and you’ll also have access to Mathseeds. I’m excited for them to try that program out too!

Note that this program is a U.S. program, so you may see a few differences in language and I always like to go over that with my child when I see it. They need to know the difference between neighbor and neighbour! Pricing is in CAD, so no worries about that.

Toys R Us: Big Hero 6 Armor Up Baymax Was $23 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 11:48 AM

Toys R Us: Big Hero 6 Armor Up Baymax Was $23 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

If you have not seen Big Hero 6 yet, then you are seriously missing one of the greatest Disney films in years! I am obsessed with Baymax and the whole Big Her 6 team and have only watched the movie about five times by now. Baymax toys are pretty hot right now, and this Big Hero 6 – Armor Up Baymax is on sale from $22.99 down to $17.17.

I tried price comparing this toy, but so few places in Canada currently carry it. I did find it from a secondary seller on Amazon Canada: they are charging $41.07 plus an outrageous amount for shipping. I decided to go to the source – the Disney Store. The Disney Store’s website is USA based, but they have the same Armor Up Baymax toy priced at $29.95US.

I love this little figure. He starts at 6″ tall in his plushy, lovable form. When fully armoured, the Baymax figure stands 8″ tall with a 14″ wingspan. There are over 20 pieces of armour to put on Baymax to transform him from nursebot to awesome flying robot.

Keep in mind, this is designed for somewhat older children – those who have the manual dexterity to manipulate small parts and use bits of force to snap them into place. I am a pretty big kid when it comes to this movie and I would LOVE to own a Baymax figure. He may just be among my top three Disney characters EVER!

Now, a few reviewers had difficulty getting the armour to stay on Baymax – but you really need to follow the instructions and there will be no problem. As this reviewer said:

My son loves this toy. I do not understand all the complaints about the armor falling off! My son has had no problems with it falling off! He said it is like putting legos together! I wonder if some people did not turn the belly and his back around, because you have to do that to put the armor on correctly!

This Baymax toy is not available for pick up. Toys R Us, as you know, offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. You may want to order two or check out the rest of their sale section so you can get free shipping. I added to my cart this Monster High – Secret Creepers Crypt Set that was $39.99, and is now $19.97.

Amazon.ca: Mega Bloks First Builders 123 Learning Train Was $22 | Now $14 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 11:22 AM

Amazon.ca: Mega Bloks First Builders 123 Learning Train Was $22 | Now $14 (EXPIRED)

Building blocks are one of the greatest toys in the world. The blocks teach kids better fine motor skills and how to use their imagination. This Mega Bloks First Builders 123 Learning Train is on sale from $22.39 down to $13.97. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

I could not find this set many other places in Canada, but good ol’ Walmart caries it. The exact same building set is currently $21.98 at Walmart. While you would receive free shipping at Walmart, I am not sure that is worth paying an extra $7. Just pick up two sets at Amazon Canada or add another item to your cart to qualify for free shipping.

This is a fun little toy designed for children ages one to five as the building blocks go together and come apart easily. The set includes 44 building blocks, three wheelbases, three building plates, and a sticker sheet. The building blocks come together to make a train. This train introduces kids to the numbers 0 to 9. it is a great way to teach young children through play. The stickers can be placed on the blocks (best with the help of an adult) for more fun.

These are compatible with all Mega Bloks First Builders sets so you can expand your child’s current collection. As your child grows older, they will naturally start to mix and match pieces from different sets.

Now, if you are having trouble fleshing out your cart to receive free shipping – I have some suggestions. This set of LEGO Classic Bricks is on sale from $19.99 down to $15.96. Enjoy 221 pieces of different shaped and different coloured LEGO in this set. It is designed for older children: ages four and up. Toys R US has the same box of LEGO for $19.99, and Walmart Canada has the same set for $19.86.

This set of LEGO Movie MetalBeard’s Duel – 70807 is in the honourable mention section. Originally $44.99, the set is on sale for $35.97. Now, Toys R Us has the same sale price as Amazon Canada right now but Walmart still has the set priced at $44.86.

Of course, you might already have a couple things you want to buy that you can add to this train toy set in order to receive free shipping. I think $14 is a good deal for a 50-piece of Mega Bloks.

Limited stock is available.

B1G1 On Select Barbie Dolls @ Toys R Us Canada

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 9:33 PM

B1G1 On Select Barbie Dolls @ Toys  R Us Canada

Attention, Toys R Us currently has a pretty awesome deal on select Barbie dolls! While supplies last, you can take advantage of a “buy one, get one free” deal on select Barbie dolls priced at $29.99 or less.

Once you click over to the Toys R Us page, you will be able to click through 4 pages of Barbie dolls with a total of 47 dolls. Some of these, like the Ken groom doll, are already sold out but there are plenty more to choose from.

Technically, this Toys R Us promotion is labelled as “while supplies last” but there is every possibility that it will expire when most other promotions end and that’s at the end of the week. Every week, offers expire on Thursday and new ones are released on Friday. It’s possible that this Barbie one will truly keep going but if you want to take advantage of it, it’s best not to wait until the end of the week to find out.

Save Even More
To save even more, be sure to combine this BOGO offer with dolls that are already on sale. The cheapest one I could find is the Barbie sisters’ fun day skipper doll on sale for $7.47 (reg. $14.99). You could get it for free if you get the next cheapest doll, which is either the pink & purple magic mermaid or just the purple one. Both of these are on sale for $8.47 (reg. $16.99) each.

Another cheap Barbie doll is the beach Raquelle doll on sale for $10.99. The original price isn’t listed but it does has 16 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars! It looks like the perfect doll for some fun in the sun this summer!

Shipping

Shipping is free on orders over $25. I have found that the free shipping offer can be a little unpredictable with Toys R Us, so in the event that you add too many Barbie dolls and the free shipping offer ceases to apply, then just split it into two orders. Most of these dolls are also available for free in-store pickup if you want to get your order quicker.

400x Sargent Art Crayons (8 Colours) Were $55 Now $10 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 21, 2015 at 11:00 AM

400x Sargent Art Crayons (8 Colours) Were $55 Now $10 @ Amazon Canada! (EXPIRED)

Hit up Amazon.ca today for a super deal on some kid’s crayons – you can grab this box of 400 Sargent Art crayons for a mere $9.99. That works out at just over $0.02 per crayon!

If you buy this item on its own from Amazon Canada, it wouldn’t be eligible for free shipping. However, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you get free two day shipping on most items on site, so you’d get it with this item. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, then I would recommend making your cart up to $25 to get free super saver shipping. I am sure there are plenty of other items on Amazon that you need. Or you could just buy three sets – 1200 crayons!

The description for this item from the Sargent Art site says:

Sargent Art Crayon Displays are vibrantly coloured and filled with quality, economy & value. These crayons are bulk packaged for ease of use and convenient storage. Eight colours per box.

In terms of a price comparison, I can say that this exact crayon set isn’t sold at many other online Canadian stores. I did find it for $47.08 here at Rose Delta, an Edmonton based store. A similar set but with only 200 crayons is $94.46 here at Hookbag.

Something that I was thinking was that these could make a good gift if you’re filling some loot bags for a kid’s party. There are 50 boxes of 8 crayons each, so they’d go a long way. There are a lot of other uses for the crayons too, other than just home use. For example, if you work in a restaurant, daycare, nursery, or anywhere that you need to keep kids entertained for a bit, then a bulk lot of these crayons would be a great idea.

But I’ve also just had a brainstorm – these would be excellent for the various crayon art that you see all the time on Pinterest! There are hundreds of creative things you can do with crayons, including this melted crayon picture shown above. This is on my to-do list to try!

Some other crayon art ideas:

How about you, would you like to try any of the above?

Imaginarium Train Table Set Was $100 Now $39.97 & $10 off Shipping @ ToysRUs Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 11:08 AM

Imaginarium Train Table Set Was $100 Now $39.97 & $10 off Shipping @ ToysRUs Canada (EXPIRED)

The Imaginarium 55 Piece Train Table is on a great deal today @ ToysRUs Canada. This fully equipped train table was $99.99 but is now only $49.97. This train table comes with an automatic $10 off promotion. Plus use the coupon code from our forums to save an additional $10 making it $39.97 plus shipping!

Train tables are an amazing toy for most kids under 6 years old. The trouble is these train tables start at $100 and only go up in price. Today you can grab this train table on sale half off, and if you use the coupon code CINEPLEXHOLIDAY you can score an extra $10 discount, as this table is more than the $40 minimum.

Let’s discuss shipping, because this is where this deal can get sticky. This table has an automatic discount of $10 off shipping. This is a bulky, heavier item so shipping tends to cost a little more and can vary based on your location. I am located in Quebec and shipping was $24.19 for me when I put this item in my cart. Between the coupon and the shipping promotion, you are knocking quite a bit off your shipping costs. That combo keeps this table at a very good deal compared to the competitors. Alternatively, if there are ToysRUs stores near you, you could ship to store for free and avoid all shipping costs, plus still use the coupon.

Here is what it looks like in my cart to ship this item to Quebec with the discounts. Note that taxes will also vary depending on the province you live in.

Imaginarium Train Table Set Was $100 Now $39.97 & $10 off Shipping @ ToysRUs Canada (EXPIRED)

This is a product that is exclusive item to ToysRUs Canada, but if you look around the web you can find several other comparable train tables. Over at Sears.ca you could pick up the KidKraft Train Town Set for $99.99. Costco.ca has the Step2 Deluxe Canyon Road Train & Track Table for $124.99. The Kidcraft Ride Around Train table is on sale for $149.99 at  Amazon.ca. I also found over at Well.ca the KidKraft Waterfall Mountain Train Set & Table at $219.99. The Toys R Us Price is looking awesome.

Train tables are one of those toys that most young children gravitate too. The moving of the train along the track is irresistible. There is a reason most Chapter’s locations have a train table set up on site in with the kids’ books. If you have a train loving kid, you may have had your eye on a train table for a while. Now is the time to buy, I have not seen a price this low on a train table in quite a while.

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.

The Children’s Place Canada: 25% Off Sitewide Coupon Code & Free Shipping TODAY ONLY! (EXPIRED)

Easy, breezy spring will be here soon. Today is a great day to stock up on some sweet deals for kids with a 25% off coupon code site wide @ The Children’s Place Canada. Free shipping with no minimum is also available for today only!

Click here to use The Children’s Place coupon code now

  • Coupon Code: 25OFF3
  • Discount: 25% off every order and free shipping
  • Expiry: 17th March 2015

My daughter has suddenly decided she loves wearing skirts and dresses. With spring approaching, I plan on stocking her wardrobe with a few more skirts than I have in the past. It is fun to watch as she twirls around the living room, usually to whatever music I am streaming free on Songza.

Today I spotted a cute girl’s Glitter Mesh Skirt that was $24.95, is on sale for $9.49 and with the coupon code is now only $7.12. This pretty skirt is the perfect opportunity for you to stock up on skirts for your favourite little girl. The material is a mesh and has glitter scattered into the fabric for extra sparkle. I like the few mesh skirts we have owned, as they dry quickly if they happen to get wet. There is a lining under the skirt so it is not see-through, and the band is elastic. This skirt is available in all sizes from extra small (size four) to extra-large (size fourteen).

If your little girl likes twirling, I like the Floral Pleated Dress. This breezy dress was $44.95, is on sale for $20 and is now only $15 with the coupon code. This sweet little dress has ruffles at the sleeves and comes in a floral print in pink and blue that would look darling at any Easter Egg Hunt or spring outing. The length is designed to be above the knee, and the skirt is full of cute little pleats. This dress is also available in every size from extra small (size four) to extra-large (size fourteen).

I kept coming back to this sweet little Floral Striped Dress that is an adorable and cheery pink dress with a bow at the waist. This dress was $44.95, is on sale for $26.97 but is now only $20.23. This dress is too big for my daughter, but would be cute for Easter or other spring parties for a bigger kid. You can still grab this dress in sizes eight, ten, twelve or fourteen. The dress is made of cotton poplin underneath and has polyester satin and organza striped layer over top to give it an airy feel.

Free shipping day is one of the best days to shop at the Children’s Place. The normal shipping fees are $8 if you were to shop tomorrow. Even better, with no minimum you could pick up only one or two items with this deal.

Toys R Us Canada: Crayola 3-in-1 Easel Was $55 | Now $33 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 13, 2015 at 3:22 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Crayola 3 in 1 Easel Was $55 | Now $33 & Free Shipping

Got a toddler who loves to do art on your walls? Stop him or her now with this Crayola 3-in-1 easel from Toys R Us. Regularly $54.99, it is now $32.97. I do say that is free shipping, but it is actually $0.57 shipping. You’ll get $10 off your shipping on this item, and the shipping was $10.57 for me, making my shipping a cool couple of quarters.

My kids actually had two easels when they were younger. One withstood so much over the years as a paint easel. The other I used for magnetic letters and numbers. This one easel can do double duty for both of those tasks. It has a chalkboard on one side and a white board on the other side. Your child can draw directly on the easel or clip up paper on either side to have the artwork to keep. Hint: get the paper from Ikea the next time you are there as it is super cheap!

This set also comes with the letters and numbers – 77 to be exact, plus an eraser. What’s great about magnetic letters and numbers (that aren’t piling up on your fridge) is that kids can learn their letters and numbers, names and easier words and they don’t have to write them out. They can stick them up on the board, which honestly, kids love doing.

There are some mixed reviews on there, which I think some could be attributed to how it was put together, but also price. Well, with over $20 off, I think this easel is great value.

Our 2 year old budding artist of a granddaughter just adores this. Very easy to set up and move around. Also very durable as she tends to lean in the middle of the easel picking out her coloring books and crayons! It would have been nice to have included crayons,marking pens or chalk but we had some on hand regardless. Would recommend it highly!

I couldn’t find this set anywhere else, but I did see that it was previously on sale but not this low, so this is the best price it has been. If you are looking for something a little more for older kids and are willing to spend a bit more money, there is a really great deal on the Imaginarium Master Studio easel. It was regularly $129.99, now $77.97. The shipping is a bit higher on this easel, but your savings with the price will cover that.

Puma Canada: Kids TX-3 Sneakers Were $65 | Now $39 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 8:38 AM

Puma Canada: Kids TX 3 Sneakers Were $65 | Now $39 & Free Shipping

Get your kids out of their boots and into some new kicks for spring. Kids feet grow super fast and I know that the shoes my kids wore in the fall outside probably no longer fit. I will have to spend a bit to outfit three little kids in new shoes. My kids love the Puma brand, which has a bit to do with their dad’s love of golf, so they would be very happy to receive the Puma TX-3 sneakers. These were regularly $65 USD and are now $39 USD. If you use the coupon code FREESHIP, you’ll also get free shipping and not have to spend the normally required $99.

These shoes are colourful in blue, red and white for one choice, pink, black and white in another and blue and white in a third. That means these shoes can be well suited for boys or girls. I personally love the rainbow type look of the blue, red and white.

Not only do they look good, these shoes are lightweight and made with quality. They also have lace closure, a Kinder-fit sock liner for comfort and a non-marking outsole so kids can wear them in the gym.

This style of shoe was actually introduced in 1987 and since everything 80s is making a comeback, sneakers are the perfect choice for that retro look.

I couldn’t find this sneaker selling at any Canadian store. Puma does ship from the U.S., but all your duties are paid right at checkout and with the free shipping deal, you won’t pay a premium to have these get to you from the U.S. They do sell the toddler version at Amazon.com for around $50 and whatever additional fees it will take to get them from there. This is the best deal you are going to get on these shoes.

Amazon also had one review, that I’d like to share with you about these sneakers:

Super cute & comfortable!

And there you have it!

My Outlet Store Canada: Avent Double Electric Breast Pump Was $290 | Now $160 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 6:01 PM

My Outlet Store Canada: Avent Double Electric Breast Pump Was $290 | Now $160 (EXPIRED)

If you’ve got a baby on the way or you are currently breastfeeding and need to go back to work, a breast pump could be one of your best friends, or breast friend, as they say. My Outlet Store has a fantastic deal on the Avent double electric breast pump, which is regularly priced at $289.99 and now on sale for $159.

I am a huge breastfeeding advocate and my theory is that whatever gets mom to breastfeed is best. Some moms prefer to pump, some don’t like pumping at all. I could not get much out, but sometimes it was a necessity. If you want to have a night out and “pump and dump” or have a night out and leave baby some food for dad to feed. If you just like having the option to feed a bottle when you want, you’ll need a pump.

What’s awesome about this pump is that it is a dual, which means that it will be less time for you to pump. Believe me, you want to spend less time pumping. What I found with pumping extras is that you almost always have something or someone on the breast. So, if you can reduce your time by pumping both breasts at once, you’re now winning.

In the description, they also say that you don’t need to lean forward, which is also nice, as you want to save your back for other things, like lifting your kids and leaning over to get the chips.

The bottles are BPA-free, as they should be. I actually remember throwing out all of my expensive Avent bottles when my son was a baby because they were not BPA-free and the story broke as to that being really bad. Avent was the brand everyone told me was the best and the main reason was that the bottles did not leak.

Shopping around, you won’t find this pump even close to this price. Future Shop sold this pump for $239, where it is now sold out. Toys R Us sells it for $239.97. My Outlet Store’s price is $80 cheaper than these two stores.

Not having used this pump, you could check out the reviews on the Toys R Us website, like this one:

As a breast pump novice and new mom I didn’t know what to expect, but I can honestly say that this pump saved my life. I don’t think I could have survived without having the option to express a bit and keep some milk so that I could have some time for myself, or when out somewhere not particularly breastfeeding friendly, but also for that last night feed to make sure our baby got enough milk in to last her through the night (otherwise she would just fall asleep on the breast without taking enough milk in).

Shipping is free for this item, which is a sweet bonus.

Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

Select styles of Tiny TOMS rain boots are on sale over @ TOMS Canada. These boots were $48 and are on sale for $29.25. With the coupon code SPRING15 you can get them for only $24.25. Free shipping with no minimum is included with every purchase until the end of March.

Yesterday on the way back from picking up my daughter, she found a huge puddle in the parking lot. Luckily for me, she was wearing her snow pants this time as she gleefully cannonballed into the puddle. By the time we left, there was not a single spot on her below her armpits that was dry.

This was a good wake up call for me that spring is truly coming and I need to start seriously considering her rain gear.  I spotted these durable and adorable Tiny TOMS rain boots on discount today. These boots come in a variety of sizes and colours, so you will want to pay attention carefully to which ones you grab. The following colours are on sale:

  • Camo: Size 11
  • Purple & Green: Sizes 5, 6, 7 & 10
  • Multi Dot: Sizes 9, 10 & 11
  • Pink: Sizes 9 and 10

TOMS makes a good quality shoe, and I would trust that they make a pretty good quality rain boot. I have owned a few pairs of TOMS shoes and have a friend who goes out of her way to regularly purchase TOMS products for her kid. These boots also look comparable to BOGS rain boots which are a pretty well-loved rain boot for kids.

I have talked in past posts about how great TOMS One to One Program is. If you like to do a little good with your retail purchases, TOMS is a great company to shop with. For every pair of shoes they sell, they also give a pair to someone in need. They have given away over 50,000 pairs of shoes in South Africa and Argentina. It is almost like a buy one, get one free deal then.

If you were to go to Get Outside, you would pay $49.95 for these rain boots. Not many other retailers carry these rain boots. At BOGS you will pay $50 for little kids rain boots of a similar style and quality. At Softmoc.ca you will pay a minimum of $50 a pair for a pair of BOGS rain boots. Better to grab this TOMS style before they are gone.

The youth styles of these boots are also on sale, with a little bit of a higher price, so you’ll want to check those out if you have kids older than toddlers.

There are only two reviews for these boots on TOMS website. One person thought they were too heavy for a four year old. The other reviewer was thrilled with the purchase. You will have to use your own best judgement. Here is the happy reviewer.

We LOVE these boots and so does our son! He likes to wear them everywhere…even in the house in just a diaper. We’ve gotten tons of compliments. They are perfect for our Seattle weather. About to buy the next size up Tiny TOMS Rain Boots Were $48 | Now $24.25 With Coupon Code & Free Shipping @ TOMS Canada

I would grab these boots now while they still have the size you want. Durable, cute & ethical rain boots will not last long with spring on the horizon. Grab your favourite style before they are gone.

Spring is coming and so are all of your spring and Easter parties and events. Take advantage of this sweet deal and give your little boy a clean and fresh look for spring. This sweet little gingham bowtie is the perfect accessory to add a little spring color to your favourite boy’s outfit.

This bowtie comes pre-tied, thank goodness. I once had to tie my own bowtie when I worked at a ritzy country club and forgot mine at home. I managed to tie it after quite a bit of effort. I never forgot that pre-tied bowtie at home again after that! I can only imagine that both tying a bowtie and convincing a young boy to stand still would be next to impossible. This sweet pre-tied bowtie comes in the colour ripe banana in a gingham pattern. The bowtie is made of 100% cotton. This could pair with a white, grey or another light pastel coloured oxford shirt. The sizing is available in both a 4-7 and 8-14 size.

If you need something to pair with this bowtie, check out some of the other options in the boys clearance section. Try the Dressy Oxford Vest in grey that was $29.35 but is now only $7.56. This light grey vest comes in every size from extra small (a size four) to extra-large (a size fourteen).  You can also grab the matching Oxford Pants that were $34.95 but are now only $11.33. These pants are currently available in every size from size four to size fourteen. They have an elastic waist, but one the front have a zip and snap button closure.

I would also consider the Oxford Shirt, currently available in both blue and pink in the boys clearance section. This shirt was $24.95 but is now only $8.39. The pink shirt is available in every size from extra small through large. The blue shirt is available in sizes small, medium and large. If you have the right personality, the pink could work with that bowtie for spring. The blue does not work with the bowtie as well, but is a lovely colour. If your boy has blue eyes, I bet the blue shirt would bring out the colour in his eyes nicely for pictures.

The Children’s Place has some great discounts on clothes for kids. I always find that when they offer free shipping with no minimum, it is the best time to score a deal.  Free shipping is usually only available for a day at a time. Now is the time to snag your deals.

Kobo Books March Break Sale: Kids and YA eBooks From Only $1.99 & Extra 20% off

Kobo Books March Break Sale: Kids and YA eBooks From Only $1.99 & Extra 20% off

With March Break coming up, parents might be frantically wondering how they will keep their kids busy for the entire week. While weekends always seem so whirlwind, I find March Break sort of drags on with lots of “I’m bored” and “What are we going to do”. I’m trying to plan ahead and find a way to keep my kids occupied and happy. My kids actually love to read, which is great, and they have Kobo tablets, so this sale from Kobo with books as low as $1.99 will allow me to fill up their tablets with books to read over the break (and beyond).

On top of this sale, you can also use the coupon code SAVE20BDAY to get another 20% off your books.

There are a number of books available during this sale. One book that I won’t be getting because my son has already read it and loved is Spirit Animals book 1: Wild Born. I took a chance and bought this book in hardcover a few months ago and immediately he was addicted to this series. If you have an adventure loving kid, this is one book you’ll want to get. There isn’t a regular price for this book, but I see other Spirit Animals books in the series selling for $11.69. This one is only $2.70 after coupon. The reviews are fantastic for this book as well.

Another really awesome series that my oldest son is into is 39 Clues. There are tons of books in this series, but you’ll want to start with Book 1: The Maze of Bones. There are actually a few different sets in the 39 Clues series, but this is the one that began it all. This one is also only $2.70, with subsequent books being $11.69.

For the younger kids, you’ll want to check out Clifford’s Happy Easter. It is the #1 book for kids and teens with dogs in it. That’s because all of us Canadian kids love Clifford! This one is only $0.99. It doesn’t look like the coupon works on this one.

I won’t go through every single book available with you, as everyone has their own tastes. I just wanted to point out my kid’s favourites as I love recommendations myself. Happy reading!

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:

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.
