Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Last-Minute Santa Edition

Ho Ho Ho!

So, you’ve got kids on your gift list and nothing to give them? Fret not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great deals which shall appeal to kids both young and old.

There’s a certain time in life when a lot of kids become interested in magic tricks. If there’s a budding David Copperfield in your life (the magician, not the Victorian orphan), then you might want to head over to Smartbargains and take a look at this:

Coin Trick Kit It’s the Melissa and Doug Apprentice Magician coin trick game. Included are instructions and tools needed to master sixteen different coin tricks. It may or may not get the kid cool status in Home Room, but it will definitely build logic and dexterity, in addition to hours of fun.

Best of all, you’ll save big time. The retail price is a cool $50.00, but at Smartbargains it’s just $34.99.


Friday Finds Under Fifty: the Teeny Edition

I always say it’s never too early to start being superfantastic. Choosing quality for your little tykes will help them along the path from day one. Of course, it’s also never too early to teach your small ones about careful shopping, either. That’s why this week’s Friday Finds is all about big deals for little people.

Kids Floral Play Tea Set The Tea for Three play tea set is a great example of this concept. Made of sturdy, cheerful enamelware, it comes complete with a teapot (which looks more like a coffee pot, but would work for either beverage or hot chocolate), three tea cups, three saucers, and three plates. The whole set is decorated in a delightful flower design with grasshoppers, bumblebees, and ladybugs. It’s recommended for ages three and up…and my guess is that a kid who enjoys this would continue to do so for years to come, as well as appreciate the charm of a proper afternoon tea.

Best of all, if you order it now from The Land of Nod, you can save enough to fund the scones and clotted cream! The original price was $54.00, but it’s been marked down to a thrifty $39.00.

It’s Never Too Early to Be Superfantastic

The next generation of the superfantastic is already here and growing up. It is our responsibility as people of taste and discernment to raise them correctly, and that means exposing our own kids (and those of our best friends and siblings, etc.) to great style right from the beginning.

That’s why I got so excited when I headed over to Pillows and Throws.Com only to find this adorable crib set by Modern Basics on sale:

Frog Crib Set With its cheerful leaf green color and friendly frogs, it’s just the thing to start off your child appreciating good design and good humor in equal parts. The 280TC cotton sateen fabric will cradle baby in comfort as well as pizzazz, too. After all, the best design is not only fabulous to look at, but delicious to the touch as well.

The set includes: a reversible crib bumper with 9″ ties in 22 places, a reversible crib quilt, crib skirt with 15″ drop tailored with inverted pleats, and a standard sized crib sheet.

Normally, this set would set you back $270.00, but you want the best deal so you can afford to buy baby superfantastic shoes, too! That’s why it’s so exciting to me to find the set on sale for just $215.99! That’s a savings of 20%, which will come in handy when you want to get some extra sheets for the crib.

The good news is they’re on sale, too!
