I just had to share this….
we have just decorated DS’s room ready for the big move in on his own after 2 and half years with us ….so want to do it in Little Einsteins theme but its just not available here & so expensive on ebay…50 pound sterling for duvet!!
Anyway decided to make my own posters etc to decorate walls & make do with a cheaper duvet set not Little Einsteins…
Today popped into Smyths & there was Pat Pat rocket that Ds loves…he has been watching them since he was a baby & has always loved them…so did a naughty thing & bought the Rocket at 45 euro
But….he has not stopped playing with it since bought it home…is playing wonderful games with it ….so to me its so worth money….when I asked him in shop if he would like it he said…..oh yes please mummy………just couldnt resist…….so anyone else tempted would throughly recommend
one very happy little boy & a very happy mummy watching him play so grown up with it.
but any tips on buying any cheaper items please post as really cant be spending money like this too often…

I was in tkmaxx the other day and they had single bed duvets that were white and navy with little rockets on them, just cant remember the priceAugust 12, 2008 at 9:59 pm #64877mamacitaMember
Ikea is really brilliant for kids rooms Moonflower. They have really nice duvets for around 10 sterling and lovely furniture, lighting and toys too. They even have beds that extend to full size as your child gets older. You can look at everything online. The only thing is, its a bit of a treck to get up to Belfast.August 14, 2008 at 12:38 pm #64937JedtKeymaster
I wanted to decorate my sons room in under the sea theme but stuff was crazy expensive so I got creative.I printed some stuff from internet (big fish etc.) and copied them onto the walls in pencil and then painted them in. It looked like sea world by the time I was finished, I had sharks, turtlers, fish etc.
Took a while to do but it was worth it in the end. It’s the little things like that which make it personal and I felt chuffed when it was all done.
