The Little Lilypad is a lifestyle blog mostly written by a mum to two beautiful, cheeky and entertaining daughters. It is sometimes written by the Man on the Pad or by one of our baby bloggers. Occasionally we accept guest posts too. There is frequently talk of shoes and clothing (we love fashion and savvy shopping), chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate) education and swimming (we love this too). It is hopefully helpful, sometimes funny and always honest.

    Christmas was an expensive time. In fact general life seems to just be getting more and more expensive so finding things where I can save money feels like it has become a quest in my life.

    The endless round of parties.

    The need for last minute gifts.

    Not to mention the thought of party bags for 20+ children. ( I made the mistake of having 50 children last year - never, ever again).

    How can parents make this endless toy buying a little easier on their pockets? Well let me introduce you to PoundToy.com.  We have collaborated with PoundToy as they are one of the UK’s favourite websites where you can purchase high quality, branded character cheap toys & games for children of all ages at prices that cannot be beaten!

    The name of the website gives a hint to the bargains that can be found and in their clearance section, there are items for 50 pence!!!

    Not everything is a pound though. But there are great deals to be had. Want a special anniversary Barbie for less than the RRP? They have an offer on that.

  2. Win Kevin and Katie the Carrot!

    Posted on

    Christmas Adverts have become big business this year and while some people love to shed a tear at the John Lewis advert, there are those of us rooting for the underdog and in recent years that has come in the shape of an orange little carrot called Kevin.

    The marketing campaign from Aldi is brilliant and their social media team have gone to new levels this year, enjoying some entertaining banter with Coca Cola too. The frenzy around Kevin reached new heights last week when Aldi released their Kevin the carrot (and family) soft toys for 2018.

    The world official went mad.

    Websites crashed.

    Queues outside the stores.

    Women wrestling in the carrot aisles (okay I may have made that bit up).

    Despite not caring where I buy our food from, my girls were swept up in the Kevin the Carrot frenzy and wanted their very own Kevin and Katie. So I was amazed when I went into our local store to find that they still had some left. I wrestled worked my way to the front and was delighted that there was still a choice so I got a Kevin and Katie each for my girls.

    However (now this is the good bit) as it happens, one daughter only wanted Kevin and the other Katie so I have two to spare! 

    I have seen so many of these plush toys selling on eBay for silly money and whilst I am not saying a few extra pennies might be nice this Christmas, it is the season of goodwill after all, so I have decided to give the Lilypad readers a chance to win them! 

    All you need to do is enter on our Instagram page!

    Good luck. 

     

     

     

  3. Baby Annabell : Milly Feels Better

    Posted on

    Have you had to endure needles and injections for your little ones? Let's be honest, no one really likes having any kind of procedure that involves a needle, but it can be more of a problem for some. Fear of needles can be worrying for parents, particularly if your child needs regular injections or blood tests, there are ways to improve the situation and for children, this can come in the form of the fun and educational Baby Annabell doll, Milly Feels Better.

    Make Milly feel well again with the 5 Doctor accessories included. Milly's cheeks will turn red when she needs attention. Check her temperature with the thermometer and her heartbeat with the stethoscope.

    With a budding doctor in our house, this is the perfect gift choice for her (and her baby doll addiction). At £34.99 it is reasonably priced and more affordable than a lot of dolls in this market and has the added benefit of being in the Baby Annabell range so can share lots of the other products, such as clothing and accessories.

    When it's time for her medicine, put the medicine spoon near her mouth and Milly will start to feel better again. If she is still poorly, she can also be given an injection. Milly also features sleeping eyes when she is laid down, and will also laugh when tickled. (Note to self : turn her off when the children are asleep as you don't want night time giggles!)

    Milly Feels Better encourages great role playing and can help children over come their own fears of getting injections or going to the doctors.

    If you think Milly Feels Better could help your little one feel better then we are delighted to be able to give you a chance to win one just before Christmas. All you need to do is enter below.

    Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you can't have escaped the build up to Christmas with Elf posts all over social media last year and this year is destined to be even bigger and better with the introduction of the Magical Elf Door and personalised letters!

     Elf for Christmas Door

    If you honestly haven't heard about the Elf, it is the perfect way to create a modern family tradition, ‘Elf for Christmas’ is an enchanting toy and reward kit perfect for girls and boys aged two and over. You can choose from a girl or boy Elf and this charming toy brings fun and magic to your home throughout December – while promoting good behaviour and family engagement.

    We LOVED seeing the Elf mischief last year and cannot wait for our very own Elf, Pip to make his appearance on the 1st December. The Magical Elf Door is the perfect way for your Christmas Elf to travel back and forth from the North Pole to your home – the Magical Elf Door is new for 2018 and is sure to get the magic started this winter.

    One of the favourite things from last year was that Pip brought a letter with him every day and I was a little worried about re-using them again this Christmas but Elf for Christmas have thought about that too and added the bonus of having them personalised this year too.

    The Elf for Christmas Personalised Advent Letters are written directly to your child or children, from their very own Elf, and mention their hometown and the other people in their house throughout. How amazed will your little ones be when they see their Elf pal has written special letters just for them!
