Where did Wednesday go??

I seem to be missing a day from this week. Has anyone seen it…?

Oh, well. Hey, we can do Kohlsday just as easily on Thursday, right? Right.

There’s plenty of Bonus Buys to be had, plus everyone gets automatic free shipping on $75+ and earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. Kohls charge card holders can also use code SAVEBIG30 for an additional 30% off, plus code SHIPPINGMVC will ship any size order for free. No Kohls card? You can still use code CELEBRATE for an additional 15% off.

I am on the hunt for a new go-to plain t-shirt, if anyone has any suggestions. I used to love the Old Navy Perfect Tee, but they changed it. Then I started buying the Juniors So brand ones at Kohls (I know; I should not be buying Juniors, and for my trouble I had to buy a large rather than a small, but whatever…), but then they changed those, too. I see the Apt. 9 plain Ts are on sale at Kohls now… anyone have any experience with them? I might give ‘em a whirl.

Get your Easter goodies!

You know how there’s always a few little things you want from Oriental Trading but then you can’t get free shipping unless you spend $49, and in order to spend $49 there you’d have to buy one of everything they sell? That’s such a bummer.

Well, today and tomorrow would be perfect days to pick up a few little somethings in preparation for Easter baskets; through 11:59 p.m. Central time on April 3rd, 2014, you can apply coupon code WCE4355 for free shipping on any size order. They’ve even got an Easter sale going on, so you can pick up your carrot-shaped chocolates or whatever else you need to make the kids happy.

I see a giant chocolate bunny balloon that I might need. (Why? I don’t know. The heart wants what the heart wants.)

The best indoor hoops are back!

This is always a very popular deal when the price drops to just $15, like now—this SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop is pretty much the Cadillac of mini indoor basketball, with the reviews to prove it. Why spend the same amount of money on a Nerf ball and flimsy plastic over-the-door hoop when you could have a miniature of the real thing, right down to the breakaway steel rim?

Now that spring is arriving you could actually play basketball outside again, but this would be a great purchase to tuck away for next winter.

Load ‘em up, move ‘em out!

What’s better than some giant construction vehicles to play with when you’re a little kid? Pretty much nothing, that’s what. Add a sandbox or some good old-fashioned dirt and you’ve got yourself a party.

Right now Amazon has a couple of very cool Bruder vehicles available at their lowest prices ever; this CAT track-type tractor for $13.55 is a classic, and if you like all the bells and whistles, this MAN crane truck for $23.62 is amazing.

Bruder toys will last for generations and have all of the details that make for endless hours of imaginative play. Plus I’m pretty sure that crane toy could probably lift one of my dogs. (I know, that’s not a good reason to buy it. But now I’m tempted.)

Hey, hey, hey! Guess what day it is!

Living with teenagers means that Wednesdays are never boring. (Guess how many times I’ve heard this. No, really. Don’t bother, actually; I’m sure the number is too high to count.)

In addition to their enthusiasm for reenacting cheesy commercials, Wednesdays are exciting ’round here because they also mean it’s the best day to grab the savings over at Kohls.

Right now you get $10 in Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, plus everyone gets free shipping on orders of $75+. Use your Kohls charge card and you can save an additional 30% with coupon code SHOP30, plus get free shipping on any size order with code WESHIPFREE. No Kohls card? Coupon code CELEBRATE will take 15% off your purchase even without one.

There’s a whole section of Door Buster Deals available today only, but the coupons are all good through April 2nd. Happy deal-hunting!

More Skylanders?

If your kids are Skylanders devotees, you’ll probably love this deal—right now Amazon has the Skylanders SWAP Force Sheep Wreck Island Adventure Pack for just $15.99 (free Prime or SSS available), their lowest price ever by about $9 (and the lowest I’ve seen anywhere, frankly).

I think the concept of needing little figures to play a video game is either super genius or super evil… probably a little of both. But I’m told this is a very popular system, so there you go. (I prefer to have my money taken and my feet injured the old fashioned way… on LEGOs.)

Get out and ride

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, today, but in my neck of the woods it’s finally spring. (No, don’t bother telling me it’s going to get cold again. I’m not listening. Today it is spring.) And hey, Amazon’s got a couple of Radio Flyer deals perfect for getting your little ones out in the sunshine for some fun.

For kids 3-8, the Ziggle Ride-On is currently just $39.99 shipped (its lowest Amazon price ever). I kind of wish this one came in adult sizes.

And for kids 1.5-5, the Spin N Saucer is currently just $19.97 and free shipping eligible (also the lowest-ever Amazon price).

Edited to add: Oooooh, I just found this 3-in-1 Walker Wagon (it’s a big pink snail! so cute!!) for $29.69, also an all-time-low price.

Radio Flyer ride-ons are some of the sturdiest available, and when the prices dip like this, they go fast. Get ‘em while the getting’s good!

Spring Cleaning at Mattel

There’s a bevy of toys with slashed prices over at the Mattel Shop right now—their splash page says “up to 60% off” but I’m seeing some deals in the Clearance section that are even cheaper. Definitely a great time to stock up.

Shipping is automatically free on your $40+ order, plus if you spend $50+ you can use coupon code 15OFFTOYS for an extra 15% off.

Big cars for little hands

I’ve never seen these before, but that’s only because my little darlings want the keys to my actual vehicle (please send help, and valium). Apparently these B. Wheeee-ls vehicles are all the rage on the toddler set. Pull ‘em back and they race off, plus each one has its own unique sound. No batteries required, plus they’re BPA-, PVC- and phthalate-free.

At $10.84 and free shipping eligible, this is about half what everyone else is selling them for, too. Perfect for your favorite little one or to stash in the gift closet. [Edited to add: Looks like Amazon switched sellers and raised the price. It may still be available at Target for less, though you'll have to pay shipping unless you have their credit card.]

A rare crazy-cheap Hanna sale

I don’t know that I’ve ever seen this before—today (Wednesday, March 5th) only, Hanna Andersson has all their clearance priced at just $10 or less!

Items are selling out quickly, but if you’re able to snag something you need, it doesn’t get much cheaper than this for some of the softest, highest-quality kids’ (and adults’, actually) clothing around.
