$18.97 Nap Mat with FREE personalization (includes shipping!) May 31, 2010

We’re getting ready for summer travel to friends’ homes and suddenly my 2yo is sleeping in a “big girl” bed… Eeeek! That means no more easy travel with the pack & play (playpen for us “old school” folks). Time to get a nap mat! They’re easy to wash, easy to carry, and perfect for toddlers or little ones when traveling.

Here’s a great deal on reversible nap mats from Lillian Vernon for just $14.98 including FREE personalization (regularly 19.98)! When you use code 410840100 at checkout TODAY, shipping will be a flat rate $3.99, making your personalized nap mat plus shipping just $18.97! That’s an incredible deal!

I like this one in particular because it doesn’t have an attached blanket, making it much less bulky than those with a blanket. Space is a priority when we’re packing the back of the car for road trips! (Plus, she prefers her pink monogrammed blanket from her Nana anyhow!)

Expires: Flat-rate shipping code expires today (5/31/10), and the sale on the nap mats has an unknown expiration

Thanks, RetailMeNot for the shipping code!

$24.99 & FREE SHIPPING on Little People Nativity Set December 1, 2009

If you have any little people in your life, you know they like, well, Little People. Right now, Toys R Us  has Fisher-Price’s Little People Nativity Scene on sale for just $24.99 with FREE SHIPPING! (If you shopped on Amazon, you’d find it for $49.99… )

This adorable set is great for kids of any age, but especially the toddler & preschool crowd. Perfect to keep the kiddos entertained while you’re decorating your house, addressing your holiday cards, or secretly watching them from around the corner as they make the figurines have the most hilarious of conversations.

At this price, I’d recommend buying a few sets and keeping them on hand for future gifts.

$29.99 for Patent Leather Mary Jane shoes for little girls October 21, 2009

If you have a sweet little toddler girl in your life, these shoes are a must-have for the upcoming holiday season. We used to think Robeez only made those slip-on (aka. impossible to get on) shoes that you see everywhere, which they did back in the day. Well, they also make a fabulous line of “Mini Sh0ez” that are made of leather with non-slip soles and straps that attach with velcro. These are for “light” outdoor wear, so they’re not the ones you want to have your little girl romping around the playground in, but that means they’re perfect for church and other special outings.  We’ve found them at Right Start for $29.99 (regularly $34.99) in sizes 2 – 5 (toddler).  You can bet your bottom dollar we wish we could order a pair! (Can you name that movie? If so, you probably have a child who could use a pair of these!)
