Toys R Us Massive 3 for 2 Offer

Hurry and grab yourself a great bargain this weekend at Toys R Us, either online or in store.

Running until midnight Sunday 16th September, Toys R US have 3 for 2 bargains running on Moshi Monsters, Skylanders, Lego and Crayola.

There is also free delivery across the whole site, again until Midnight Sunday.

Seems like a great time to stock up on some Christmas goodies. Hot toys for this year like the Moshi Monster App Monsters, Skylanders and Lego Lord of the Rings sets are all included.

But hurry, stock is limited and when it’s gone, it’s gone!

Ideas for things to do with the kids this Half Term

Having two boys to keep entertained when the schools are off, I’m always on the look out for fun (and relatively cheap) things to do.

As I’ve been on the lookout for myself I thought I’d write a quick post just letting you know a few of the things that I’ve found.

Smyths Toys

For fans of Moshi Monsters this one is a real must if possible.

The Moshi Monsters Tour Bus will be travelling next week to Smyths Toystores in Bristol and Cardiff (Yipee! I’ll be there!!!)

The Moshi Tour  Bus will be at

  • Smyths Toys Cribbs Causeway Bristol from 11-14th February
  • Smyths Toys Leckwith Cardiff from 16th – 19th February

There promises to be tons of fun inside for your little Moshlings like card swapping, Moshi arts and crafts, Clay buddies, Visit the Moshi shop on the top decks, and then exit by using the bus slide! and if that’s not enough, the chance to grab an exclusive ‘Busling’ Topps Trading card.

Full details of dates and times can be found on the Moshi Monsters Website Blog.

National Media Museum Bradford

For some more Moshi Monsters fun be sure to visit the National Media Museum in Bradford.

They are running a whole week of Moshi Monsters related free activities for all the family.

There will be amongst other things:

Moshi Monster Clay Buddy Animation workshops

Moshi Monsters Green Screen – Where you’ll be able to have your photo taken next to your Moshi heroes and take it home as a memento of your day

A Moshi Monsters Treasure Hunt

There is even rumoured to be a super secret Mosh-tastic surprise!

Full details dates and times can be found on the National Media Museum website.

The Entertainer

To celebrate the release of Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D, The Entertainer Toy Shop’s are running a whole week of free Star Wars related activities.

As you can see there will be fancy dress days, Lightsaber demo’s and my personal pick the Darth Maul hunt.

Best part, it’s all free. Ok so you might get roped into getting some new toys while your there but they ahem some great Half Term special offers running which should help.

Like 50% off this Star Wars Attack on Hoth Vehicle.


Cbeebies star Mister Maker is also on tour this Half Term. The Maker Mobile will be making stops at Hobbycraft stores in:

Staines, Orpington, Cheltenham, Aylesbury, Swansea, Leeds, Cambridge, Crewe and Staples Corner.

Check out the store finder on the Hobbycraft Website for full details of dates and times.

This last one isn’t free, but we can’t have everything can we. Sometimes a day out at a Theme Park is just what the doctor ordered, and next week fans of Cbeebies Raa Raa the noisy lion should make their way down to Chessington World of Adventures for their African Adventures week.

Young Adventurers will get the chance to immerse themselves into african culture, with face mask decorating, jewellery making, African inspired singing, dancing, and drumming, plus the chance to meet lots of african animals in Chessington’s zoo.

Raa-Raa the noisy lion will be making appearances for meet and greets around the park, and if your staying at the resort hotel he will even join you for breakfast.

Hope you enjoyed my round-up of a few toy related things to do, to help keep you and the kids entertained this Half Term.








3 for 2 on Toys Bargains

Get them while stocks last, the 3 for 2 toy events are here! Boots and Argos have both started their offers today.

Boots 3 for 2 is available from now until Christmas on selected toys, whilst Argos has 3 for 2 on ALL TOYS!! but only until next Tuesday the 28/09/10 and obviously only whilst stocks last.

Me and my husband have just spent the whole morning buying all of the boys Christmas (and birthday!) presents, and have saved ourselves a small fortune! So I suggest doing the same if you want to bag yourself an Xmas bargain.

Boots 3 for 2 is now an obligatory part of Christmas, scouring the Christmas book working out all of your offers is a BIG part of my Christmas ritual.

The good thing about the Boots 3 for 2 is that you can combine toys, household goods and smellies all in the one offer, so present shopping for all the family can be over in one go. Plus you can earn Advantage card points on your deals too and treat yourself in the new year sales.

Big toys for Christmas like Stinky the Garbage Truck, Paper Jamz and the Leapster Explorer are all included in the Boots offer.

The Argos 3 for 2 toys deal is an amazing offer if your in the market for toys, so the ideal choice for parents. I just can’t believe all toys across the whole of the Argos website and catalogue are included.

With a deal as good as this though, stock is bound to go fast. Nearly all of the items I choose were out of stock for home delivery already, so I’ll need to make a trip out to Argos tomorrow to go and pick it all up (plus a big Taxi home judging by the amount of stuff we bought!)

We did manage to order some of the bigger items like the Lego Star Wars Battle of Endor set and the huge Deluxe At-At, which is over 2ft tall (don’t tell Thomas) but most of it i’m going to have to pick up tomorrow.

Credit Card took a big bashing today, but on the plus side they’ll be lots of lovely new toys for me to review over the next few weeks. Think i’ll be an expert Lego builder by the time Christmas finally comes.

My advice is to get the little ones to start writing their letters to Santa now, so you can take advantage of great deals.

Happy Shopping! Sale

There’s a pretty good half price toy sale on at the moment over at Play.

Found some interesting items including some of the toys from the new Iron Man 2 film, some star Wars bits and bob’s for Thomas and some Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Mega Bloks for Jacob.

sale offers end 21st June, so be quick and bag a bargain!
