Babies R Us Canada Freebie: Free 3-Pc Car Seat Accessory With Purchase Of Any Britax Car Seat ($50 Value)

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Babies R Us Canada Freebie: Free 3 Pc Car Seat Accessory With Purchase Of Any Britax Car Seat ($50 Value)

Shopping for a car seat? Toys R Us has a great freebie going on right now: with purchase of any Britax car, you will also get a free 3-piece car accessory value pack.

Valued at $49.99, the Britax 3-piece car accessory value pack comes with:

  • a vehicle seat protector
  • an EZ-Cling window shade with 30+ UPF
  • a full-size kick mat

Just the other day, I was driving with my little one in the backseat and I had to make sure that the sun wouldn’t be beaming down on her in full force from our positioning in the parking lot. Whether I was being overprotective or not makes no difference but a window shade could have definitely simplified the whole process of driving around with her in the back. In fact, I have often found myself trying to shield her from the sun as hubby drove and I was in the backseat with her.

Although this accessory pack may not seem worth it to those of you shopping around for an infant car seat, I actually wish I could have taken advantage of such a promotion when I was shopping around for a car seat, just to have all of these items for when the time came to officially switch car seats to a forward facing one.

I particularly like that the window shade has a 30+ UPF to protect little ones from the damaging rays of the sun. In general, this accessory pack has some pretty great reviews, like this one:

All you would need to protect your car and toddler from each other. The mat is very rugged and can withstand a beating. The kick mat looks sleek and blends in with the car’s seats without wanting attention. The UV protector on the window is clingy and doesn’t fall like some other brands.

The only other place I found this value pack at is at Amazon’s Marketplace and even there, it’s actually $79.99.

As for shipping rates, I individually added the Britax B-Safe infant car seat at $199.99 and the Britax Pinnacle CT Harness 2-Booster for $399.99 and the fee stayed the same at $40 ($50 minus a $10 discount automatically applied). The car seat accessory value pack was also automatically added at checkout.

Babies R Us Canada: 47% Off Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun – Life In The Amazon – (Now $80 | Was $150)

Posted by on July 13, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Babies R Us Canada: 47% Off Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun   Life In The Amazon   (Now $80 | Was $150)

Back at the end of May, I wrote about Babies R Us’ $40 reduction of the Evenflo Exersaucer Triple Fun: Life in the Amazon. Even a $40 reduction was a great deal but surprisingly, Babies R Us is now offering an even better deal on it and I doubt that it will ever go down lower than this. Until the end of the week, it’s on sale for $89.97 (reg. $149.99) and you can bring the price even further down by adding the Toys R Us promotion code: EVENFLO10 at checkout to get it for just $79.99 for a total of a 47% discount off its original price.

In my original post, I didn’t even consider getting the Exersauser at its original sale price of $109.99 because I had just purchased the Baby Einstein: Caterpillar Friends play gym, but with Toys R Us’ current deal, I have actually already added it to my basket.

This Exercauser is basically a three-in-one activity set because it comes with a play mat, the exersauser and a table, with all three featuring their own activities. The great part about all of these is that they are meant to encourage your baby to exercise his or her mind and body by figuring out how things work, through sound and most importantly through touch. Age- wise, it’s recommended to use each stage in the following ways:

  • Play mat: newborn to four months
  • Exersaucer: four months to walking
  • Table: walking to 24 months

Of course, these are only guidelines and it really depends on your baby. If your little one can already hold his or her head at three months, then the exersauser could potentially be used earlier. Despite the fact that my little one already has a different play mat and is almost three months old, I can definitely see her enjoying all the stages of this exersaucer as I figure she could benefit from a little variety in music and visuals.

I also really like that this exersaucer can easily be folded away and that it comes with nine toys designed to achieve a vast variety of developmental milestones.

Shipping is also a lot a cheaper than it was when this exersaucer first went on sale. On its own, this product ships for $25 but since it qualifies for free shipping of up to $20 off, then you will only pay $5 to have it delivered straight to your door.

Toys R Us Canada: Step 2 Play Up Adjustable Sand & Water Table Now $49.99/ Was $99.99

Posted by on July 8, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Step 2 Play Up Adjustable Sand & Water Table Now $49.99/ Was $99.99

Toys R Us has a spectacular deal for some backyard fun this summer for the kids. For just a limited time only, you will be able to get a Step 2 Play Up adjustable sand and water table that was $99.99 for just $49.99.

The regular cost of this Step 2 table is $99.99 so with it being on sale for just $49.99, you are getting 50% off the regular price. It is recommended for ages 2 years old and up and it get a 4.4 star rating out of 5.

It comes with an umbrella to help with those hot summer days, and a variety of sand and water toys.  It also has a lid that will cover the entire table.  One of the great things about it is that you don’t have to use sand and water for it  You can use one or the other or neither at all.  I know some day homes and preschools that use these tables as a sensory area and fill them with pasta or beans to play with inside.  I think this is a great alternative.

I have a similar water table for my kids in the backyard that I actually purchased on sale from Toys R Us Canada as well.  Mine is far inferior to this one though.  It was the same price but mine does not have a lid to it, or all the accessories that come with this one.  The lid is a very important feature in my mind because it does a few different things.  First of all, it covers the sand part so that neighborhood cats don’t use your sand table as a litter-box.  The second thing it does it keeps the rain, bugs, leaves and other things out of the sand and water when you are not using it.  This is helpful because it lessens the amount of time you need to actually clean it out.  Lastly, it helps keep it all organized.  The simple use of a lid makes it look neater, and you can keep all of the accessories inside without losing them.

As for the cost of shipping, this product actually has a shipping deal on it as well. You will save $10 on the cost of shipping when you purchase it online right now. The cost of shipping will depend on where you live in Canada, but this will save you $10 no matter where you live.  That is a great bonus to this deal!

Toys R Us Canada: Britax Pavilion Car Seat Only $270

Posted by on July 7, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Britax Pavilion Car Seat Only $270

If you missed the deal I posted in May, where Toys R Us was having a one day sale with promo code, taking $100 off the Britax Pavilion car seat with Calgary fabric, well you again have the chance. Toys R Us now has this seat on sale, without the promo code, and without a known expiry date for $269.98, essentially taking $100 off.

As I mentioned in the above post, I have this exact car seat. I also mentioned how much I love it and how I spent quite a bit more money on it than $269! I have only had Britax car seats in my vehicles since my kids were little, mainly because they have amazing safety ratings. I have used other car seats in other people’s cars and when I did, I realized how much more handier mine is. The straps are easy to get done up, tighten and keep kids buckled in. They don’t really get all twisted like I’ve seen on other seats either. My husband also says they are very easy to install, which means you can go from car to car easily.

The reviewer on Toys R Us’ website said the same things as me:

I love the user friendly features, like the velcro that holds the straps open. This feature is not as effective when the small padding is in the bottom, but once your child is bigger, and the padding is removed, it works perfectly. The Versa tether is easy to install forward facing, rear facing has been an issue for my car. The versa tether is meant to loop around your seat adjuster/ seat adjuster mount. Something that bolts to your floor anyways. The other option is to use the Australian method, which involves loosening the strap every time you put your child in or out. Since my mounts are not large enough for the Swiss method, I’m not stuck with this pain in the butt, which over comes the convenience of the velcro.

As for price comparison, I checked out Snuggle Bugz, which had this seat for $295.99 (on sale) and also has it for that price as well.

Shipping is going to be about $15 once you get the $20 off credit for shipping items over $25. You also might as well take advantage of getting a Sophie the Giraffe for $12 with any purchase over $100 of baby and infant toys and gear. I paid well over $20 for mine and I have to tell you, kids love Sophie!

Babies R Us Canada: $60 Off BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Original – Now $70 (+ Free Shipping!)

Posted by on July 5, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Babies R Us Canada: $60 Off BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Original   Now $70 (+ Free Shipping!)

Looking for a baby carrier? The BabyBjorn Original baby carrier is now $50 off at Babies R Us at $79.99 (reg. $129.99), but you can use the Toys R Us coupon code: Bjorn10 to save an extra $10 and get it for just $69.97.

Although I don’t have this specific carrier, I do have a similar one, along with the Baby K’Tan sling. Personally, I prefer the sling, but my hubby uses the carrier on a daily basis and I must tell you that not only does he like using it, but my little one loves being inside of it as well. She will go from crying like there is no tomorrow to all of a sudden looking around at the world in amazement as soon as she is placed inside.

It might seem like a lot to pay for a carrier but it’s one of the highest rated ones and it has plenty of positive reviews like this one:

We purchased a different carrier earlier and it was so complicated to set up and strap to myself. I absolutely love this. Its so easy to strap and put the baby in too. It gave great neck support when my LO couldn’t hold his neck up. In addition to using it outdoors, I also use this at home when my little one wants to be carried but I need free hands.

The only con about this carrier is that it doesn’t have the best leg support, and it’s not recommended to keep the baby in it for an extended period of time. Either way, I doubt any parent would be able to keep their baby in there for all that long with the frequent feedings, diaper changes etc.

Two other Baby Bjorn baby carriers are also available at a discount, which are eligible for the coupon code above, but they’re pricier than the original one:

Price comparing this carrier, I found it priced at $129.99 at all of the other major stores. Even better is that no shipping fees will be applied as Toys R Us ships certain items over $25 for free.

Toys R Us Canada: Free Movie Voucher with $30 Purchase

Posted by on July 4, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Free Movie Voucher with $30 Purchase

Toys R Us Canada is offering a free children’s Cineplex movie voucher to Planes Fire and Rescue when you make a $30 purchase in select toy categories.

You can mix and match items from these three categories:

The voucher will be added to your cart when you have reached the $30 purchase minimum, so do not checkout if you do not see the voucher. The voucher will say:

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue – Voucher emailed within 4 days – Free Cineplex childrens voucher when you spend $30 or more

The voucher has a maximum retail value of up to $8.99.

Many of the toys in these sections are already on sale and many of them qualify for free shipping when you spend $25 or more. I loaded up my cart with this Disney Doc McStuffins Doctor’s Bag Playset that was $24.99 and is now only $18.67. I paired it with this Fisher-Price – Mickey Mouse Clubhouse – Minnie’s Pet Bowtique Playset that was $19.99 and is now discounted to $14.97. I really like that the play set includes Pluto and Figaro figurines. Together those two toys total over $30 so the free voucher is added to my cart. I also received free shipping, which took the shipping cost of $6.28 off my cart total.

There are many fun toys available in these three categories. Enjoy some Planes themed toys with this Disney Planes Spiral Air Race that was $34.99 and is now on sale for $24.98. Pick up a fun plane to hit that $30 minimum like the Disney Planes Aound Action Flyers – El Chupacabra that was $19.99 and is now $13.98. I also received free shipping on this combo and the voucher was added on no problem.

Disney Planes Fire & Rescue is in theatres July 18th, so there should be no problem with receiving your voucher in time for the movie. Unfortunately, this deal does not appear to be stack-able. I tried adding $60 worth of toys to my account and then increasing the number of vouchers from one to two: no go. The system automatically reduced it back down to one voucher. I suppose you could place multiple orders if you wanted more than one voucher as you are receiving free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Limited quantities: vouchers available while supplies last. This offer cannot be combined with other offers except sales and free shipping on $25 or more.

Babies R Us Canada: 25% Off Jolly Jumper

Posted by on June 27, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Babies R Us Canada: 25% Off Jolly Jumper

Babies R Us has a great deal on the Jolly Jumper right now. For a limited time, you can save 25% on both the original one and the one with a stand.

Having only recently found out that sitting a baby up too early may not be the best for their spinal development, my initial thought at seeing this jumper was with regards to its impact on posture. Turns out that it’s actually designed to improve balance, coordination and strengthen muscles, all the while providing firm support for the spine.

Here’s the price breakdown for both:

  • Original Jolly Jumper: reg. $49.99 / now $37.47
  • Jolly Jumper on a stand: reg. $79.99 / now $59.97

As my little one is going on three months, I will most probably be getting the one with the stand because there is no doorway in my living room and I would prefer to have her bouncing around in whichever room we’re in. The only issue with the one with the stand is that it’s quite large, according to the reviews, and I envision that I may need to move the coffee table to the side when I place her in the Jolly Jumper. The Original one, on the other hand, attaches to a doorway with a clamp. In either case, your baby will be 100% safe and secure as he or she bounces around, especially as evidenced by the countless reviews online such as this:

LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing. My daughter could spend all day in this if we let her. I love seeing her in as she is so happy and gets so excited. She learned how to bounce really quick and when she gets going fast she puts her legs up and swings in it and laughs and laughs, and she has also learned to dance.

Price comparing both of these jumpers, I found that Babies R Us’ prices are definitely the best ones across the board. In fact, even has the one with the stand for as much as $120!

Although it’s not on speciel, this is cheaper than anywhere else; there is a musical mat available for purchase at $19.99 by the same brand. It comes with three music nodes that activate when the baby touches them.

While shipping is free for the Original Jolly Jumper, it’s $10 for the one with a stand.

Toys R Us Canada: Monopoly Only $12

Posted by on June 25, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Toys R Us Canada: Monopoly Only $12

If you are looking for the perfect board game for rainy days in, long nights at the cottage or in your trailer, look no further than Monopoly. Toys R Us has a great deal on it right now, for only $11.97, with a regular price of $19.99.

Monopoly is the classic game that lives on and on. I played it as a child and my kids now play it. I really don’t go for all the deluxe versions of Monopoly as I think the classic game is perfect and why change something? It says you can play it from age 8 and up, but my younger sons have played it, they just get a little bit of help.

Just to give you a sense of the cost of this game at other stores, Chapters Indigo is having a sale on board games right now, but their sale price of $15.96 doesn’t cut it. Other than that, I’m not seeing it many other places, only the themed versions, which none are less than $12.

If you did want something more deluxe, the electronic banking version is also on sale for $14.97, with a regular price of $24.99.

Toys R Us has a ton of other board games that will keep your kids and your whole family busy when you need them to be. I recently bought my kids the game Perfection, which is the perfect one or two player game that keeps on going, and they don’t need your help to play it. It is a steal at only $5.97 with a regular price of $9.99, but they are out of stock. The cool thing is that you can get them to email you when it is available.

Shipping is free on a $25 spend, so you might want to take a look at the other board games, now 40% off to get your shipping fees waived.

Toys R Us Canada: $60 Off Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen (Now $140 | Was $200)

Posted by on June 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Toys R Us Canada: $60 Off Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen (Now $140 | Was $200)

Are you a fan of Chopped Canada or maybe even Top Chef? Then get your little one his or her very own kitchen to practice cooking in as for a limited time, you can save $60 on the Step2 Creative Cooks kitchen at Toys R Us. It was originally $199.99, but you can get it for just $139.99.

I would absolutely love it if my little one grew up to be a big time celebrity chef, especially if she cooked for me every evening, and I’m actually very tempted to get this kitchen even though she isn’t quite old enough to play with it yet! Toys R Us Canada: $60 Off Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen (Now $140 | Was $200)

What’s cool about this ‘toy’ is the level of details: there are plenty of accessories, appliances (oven, stove top, microwave), a phone and even a back splash, etc. Plus, it can be used as an educational toy as you can teach your child chores like taking out the garbage, feeding pets (through stuffed toys, although these aren’t included), etc.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this is just for boys either. Not only is there a picture of a boy on its promotional image but countless of happy parents have left comments saying that both their daughters and sons really enjoy playing with it!

Out of close to 70 reviews, this kids’ kitchen has actually received a total of 4.5 stars out of 5, with positive reviews like the following:

We bought this for my 18 month old daughter for Christmas. It is a great kitchen set! The sink is large enough for her to really pretend with; all of the bins and doors to open are great. It was not that difficult to put together. She loves it! Worth the money.

Although there weren’t many, negative reviews primarily highlighted the fact that the kitchen wasn’t easy to put together but it would seem that this aspect is definitely hit or miss as the vast majority of reviewers stated this kitchen’s ease of assembly.

Shipping fees depend on your location but a $10 discount will automatically be applied at checkout when you add this kitchen to your basket. There is also the option of getting it in-stores to avoid paying the fees; just make sure to call ahead to check its availability.

Toys R Us Canada: 50% Off Step 2 – Shady Oasis Sand & Water Play Table (Was $99, Now $49.99)

Posted by on June 21, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Toys R Us Canada: 50% Off Step 2   Shady Oasis Sand & Water Play Table (Was $99, Now $49.99)

Pick up this Step 2 Shady Oasis Sand & Water Play Table at Toys R Us Canada this week for just $49.97 (reg $99).

This Sand & Water Table is a great addition to your backyard, no matter the size. It offers a wide range of possibilities for your child: don’t let the product name hold you back. I was personally never a big fan of putting water on one half and sand on the other…mud pies are inevitable when you put both of those elements in such close proximity. Don’t get me wrong, mud pies are fun, but there is a time and a place.

Some alternative combinations for this table are: water on both sides, sand on both sides, water with an abundance of bubbles, a variety of rice on one side and dried legumes on the other….that’s right, you heard me. These are both cool textures for kids to explore (you can even dye the rice different colours with food colouring). I have even made a whack of Goop for the kids to explore with this table.

In the winter I have brought this table inside for play; it really is versatile if you think outside the box. For outdoor play, I really like the umbrella that is included for both practical reasons and the cuteness factor. You can find plenty of reviews on this product like this one:

I have three children and they all really enjoy this toy. It’s fun play for hours, especially on a hot day Toys R Us Canada: 50% Off Step 2   Shady Oasis Sand & Water Play Table (Was $99, Now $49.99)

I shopped around and didn’t find a comparable price anywhere. You can find a similar but more expensive version at is also offering a few other outdoor gems this week, such as these the Step 2 playhouses:

Since all of these items are over $25, shipping will be free!

Toys R Us Canada: Free Play Day Event

Posted by on June 20, 2014 at 8:00 AM

If you are looking for something fun and free to do with your family this weekend, Toys R Us is the place to be.  This Saturday, June 21st, they are having a huge Play Day that is free for the entire family to have fun at, and includes “Make N Takes”, toy demonstrations, crafts and more.

I have gone to a couple of the free event that Toys R Us has to offer; they are always a lot of fun and a hit with my kids.  Normally, there is one event to check out and one activity, but this one is a little bit different.  You can do one or all of the activities offered and they are all absolutely free.

There will be five different activities you will be able to do tomorrow:

  • Minecraft Paper crafts: Build your very own Minecraft Diamond Armor Steve Paper craft.
  • Disney Princess: Create a Pink Tulle Disney Princess Paper Hat. They are also encouraging you to dress up as your favourite Disney character when attending this event.
  • Doh Vinci Crafts: Design a 3D with the Doh Vinci. Decorate an activity card by using different shapes,  designs and colours.
  • Preschool Play Area: This is an area for kids to play and explore  with some fun Toys R Us toys.

The event will start at 11am and is appropriate for ages two years old and up. There will be limited spaces for the events that require you make a craft, so it is best to get there early.

There are a couple of locations that are excluded, so call your local store first to make sure they are offering this awesome event.

Babies R Us Canada: 25% Off Ingenuity inLighten Cradling Swing (Now $142 | Was $190)

Posted by on June 15, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Babies R Us Canada: 25% Off Ingenuity inLighten Cradling Swing (Now $142 | Was $190)

Baby won’t let you put her/him down? Stick ‘em in a swing! The Ingenuity inLighten cradling swing – Emerson 25% off at Toys R Us right now. Instead of its regular price of $189.99, you can get it for just $142.97. Of course, this would also be a great baby shower present or maybe even for all of you lucky ones who are pregnant right now! Babies R Us Canada: 25% Off Ingenuity inLighten Cradling Swing (Now $142 | Was $190)

First, let me start by saying that I have this swing! I actually bought it last week before it went on sale. Now, imagine my surprise when I open this week’s flyer, only to see “my” swing on sale for as much as 25% off! I wasn’t sure if it would work, but I brought my receipt to the exchange department at Toys R Us and was actually refunded the difference between the price I paid and its current price back onto my credit card!

As for the swing itself, all you really need to know is that, yes, my baby loves it. Well perhaps love is too strong of a word right now, but she certainly doesn’t cry when I put her in it. She stares at the rotating hippo in amazement and eventually drifts off to dreamland after about 20 minutes.

It can rock back and forth or side to side and features 6 speeds, 8 melodies and 3 nature sound. Plus, although I haven’t tried it yet, it’s also possible to plug a phone or mp3 player to play your own soundtrack as well (perhaps from a collection of nursery rhymes).

Assembly-wise, it’s not too complicated and only requires one person. Do make sure to connect all the pieces correctly because once it clicks in, it’s pretty hard to separate it (I say this from experience…)

Although shipping is usually free on orders over $25, it doesn’t apply to this swing. However, you will instantly save $10 on shipping fees once you add it to your basket and will pay an estimated cost of only $20 instead of $30.

Toys R Us Canada: Risk Board Game Only $17.47

Posted by on June 14, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Risk Board Game Only $17.47

Get the game of Risk for your cottage, camper or for rainy days spent inside this summer. Toys R Us has the game on sale for 30% off, now only $17.47 with a regular price of $24.99.

Why You Need This Game

Risk is a game I’ve been playing since early childhood. Some of my best (and worst) memories surround playing the game of Risk with my family and friends. I say worst because some people just don’t seem to be able to handle losing this game. Fist fights ensue and then the game is over. Okay, I wouldn’t go that far, but I’ve had people storm out of our house after feeling “attacked”, which really is the name of the game. Until recently I had the original version of this game from 1975, that was my dad’s, but my dog who was mad that I was away at work a little too long, took it upon herself to destroy it. I did recently buy a new version, but too bad I didn’t wait and get it for less than $20.

Why you need the game is simple: it is a fun and strategic game that the whole family can play. I’ve played this with my six-year-old and he actually won. It has simple instructions, but that doesn’t mean it is easy and boring. You need to have a mind for where to attack and when to let go.

Like I said, this is the perfect game for lazy nights at the cottage, at home on rainy days and more. Keep those kids (and yourself) busy!

Price comparison

Of course I checked the prices at other Canadian stores and found them all at around $25. Amazon sells this for $24.93, which is one cent cheaper than their original price. Walmart, which is notorious for good-priced board games, sells it for the same price as Amazon.


Toys R Us offers free shipping on orders over $25, so to get you past that amount, you could take a look at other board game deals on now there.

Babies R Us  has a great deal right now on the Joovy Caboose ultralight stroller. Get it for just $209.97 instead of its regular price of $299.99. That’s a $90 discount, which comes up to 30% off!

I have to admit that when I was shopping for a stroller a couple of months ago, I was completely lost in the sea of what seemed like endless stroller possibilities. I was conflicted as to whether I should spend more on the sporty strollers (with 3 wheels), if I needed more basket space or if the weight even made any difference. At the time, I prioritized a large basket and manoeuvrability over shock absorbent wheels and bought the Graco Click Connect travel system, but in hindsight, I should have probably gone with the better wheels because of how much I have been going out for walks lately in an effort to shed the weight. I definitely love my stroller but at the same time, I have yet to use the basket to its full capacity and I cringe every time I hit a sidewalk line. Plus, weighing at a whopping 45.5lbs, it has been quite the work-out to lug it up and down stairs.

The Joovy, on the other hand, weighs just 21lbs and is designed to be super manoeuvrable as it features large sealed ball bearing wheels designed to offer a smooth ride. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Stroller drives really nice. Wheels are very smooth (drive/ride). Collapses easily, but need both hands to collapse and load. Excellent front seat; sits baby up nice and straight (no slouching). Excellent space in back for older child to sit/stand.

It can also sit up to two children with up to 45lbs in the front and rear seats. The great part about this stroller is that the older child can choose to either sit, stand or walk.

Deal-wise, it’s definitely a good one as Amazon has it for as much as $477.40 and Sears is offering it at its regular price of $299.99.

Although it depends on your location, shipping is approximately $30 for this stroller but with the automatic $10 shipping discount that is applied at checkout, it will come down to just $20.
