Boots have an amazing deal on the Playmobil Grand Mansion, I have bought for DDs 4th birthday/next christmas

grande mansion

Then if you bump your spend up to £100 I found a code for £15 off if you spend £100, also cash back with Quidco and free delivery.

So I have bought the mansion, 3 extra furniture sets (3 for 2), got 3.5% cash back and £11.20 in clubcard point, which I am going to use to get some more furniture for the house.

Total spend £95 minus (11.20 advantage points)

ENTER THIS CODE AT THE CHECKOUT VCPPC1115

The discount code definitely works with all the 3 for 2s etc, I used it this morning, but the site I got it from says that it runs out today.

A handful of other books

None of it was on offer apart from the wig!

OohMrDarcy - What tablet did you get? I bought dd1 an innotab for her birthday and now wish I had never bothered. She ignores it and prefers to go on the laptop so I am thinking of selling it and replacing with a budget tablet - which is what I should have got in the first place.

OohMrDarcy Fri 30-Nov-12 22:15:18

fuzzpig Sat 01-Dec-12 07:50:01

As her Xmas eve jammies from the elves, she's getting a rapunzel nightie from Disney store, the skirt bit is sort of like a tutu.

fuckwittery Sat 01-Dec-12 09:41:01

Wow I love those Isla bikes, a friend has one but I didn't know what they were called. I think that is what DD1 is going to be getting for her 6th birthday in April.

My girls (5.5 and 2.5) are going to share quite a bit so this looks like a lot......
walkie talkies to play with together
fairy scene playmobil
lego friends treehouse
Ogo Bild Pod Construction Set and some pretty fabric to make a den
sticky mosaics
the complete little miss library (book people special, only 20 quid! she has the mr men library for her 3rd birthday and there's still not a week go by when we don't read some, she is starting to be able to read them herself now, she is going to love this present).
disney princess colouring set

DD2 is getting
playmobil playpark (deal at toys r us)
baby doll & carry cot
galt octogons
magnetic number maze
I'm going to wrap up one of the big boxes that our internet deliveries came in and fill it with balloons!

still need to get the Xmas eve PJs and some books for DD2, but I'm waiting for the Book People to come to my office next week.

spookysal Sat 01-Dec-12 20:41:07

fuckwittery - Ogo Bild Pod Construction Set looks great for making dens. Have you heard good reviews about it

Thanks OohMrDarcy, that's exactly what I was thinking of. Will keep an eye on the price and hope it drops again.

emalushka Sat 01-Dec-12 20:56:32

My 5 year old dd is getting:

Hair slides, bobbles and hello kitty hairbrush.
Face cloth
Chocolate orange
Chocolate coins
Felt tips and colouring book
Lego
Mister men books - about 20 that she needs to complete her set.
A barbie doll
A worst witch book.
Farm Jigsaw
Shrinkies/sprinkles set - those key ring things that you put in the oven.
Jelli baff

I'm a bit worried that she has too much though- she has twice as many presents as my 2 year old. I may leave out the Lego. Plus relatives always buy her lots of stuff too.

fuckwittery Sat 01-Dec-12 21:17:01

spookysal, I'm planning to get it out the box and try it out, as I'm actually thinking that 2 sets might be better so they can build big enough dens (DD1 obsessed with den building at present). I will let you know.

ChristmasSALutations Sat 01-Dec-12 21:57:50

Thanks fuckwittery smile My dds are also keen den builders!

ChristmasSALutations Sat 01-Dec-12 22:04:52

DD1 is getting:

A bike without stabilisers
Baby Annabell
Candy your very own pony
Aquabeads (from my mum)
A few games (guess who and tumbling mice etc)
Zoobles (the mini ones that are about £5)

Some of these will be shared between her and her little sister. I'm hoping that they'll both play with the doll and pony.

mamasmissionimpossible Sat 01-Dec-12 22:13:20

My dd is getting:

a playmobil school
2 disney princess dolls (half price in toys r us)

I have gone way over the budget I had planned this year.must stop looking at bargains Hope she likes it all!

Dancergirl Mon 03-Dec-12 14:08:56

Right I'm sorted! smile

I bid for an Isla bike on Ebay this weekend but the price went right up to over 165 pounds and a new one is 200.

So today I phoned Isla bikes and have ordered her a pink one! Feel a bit guilty about the money with her other presents but hopefully she will get a lot of use out of it and I can always sell it on Ebay when she outgrows it.

I'm hoping it also might inspire her can't ride, won't ride 9 year old sister!
