Discounted Baby Goods and Child Safety Products


As anyone with children knows they grow, and they grow fast!  Some would say they grow too quickly. They seem to have so many growth spurts and can go up a couple of sizes at once. As a mum it is hard to keep up at times. I know that with my four it is a never ending story.



My youngest is now 3, so I am past that expensive baby stage. But I do understand and remember what it is like. With expensive items like cots, prams, high chairs, car seats, and the numerous other things that babies need. As well as the safety items like gates and latches and other child proofing products that you need around the house, it can really stretch the budget.

I am always looking out for inexpensive but quality items for my family.  Have you ever been to a Factory Outlet? They are wonderful places. They are becoming more and more popular too. I remember a holiday to Melbourne when I was younger, and we spent a very enjoyable day, going around to the factory outlets and finding the bargains.

Now there seems to be Factory Outlets popping up everywhere. They are great. That includes outlets for kid stuff too. A great new online store is Baby Value Factory Outlet. They have 3 stores in Victoria. But they are mainly an online shop, and they deliver Australia wide, but currently not to Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Because they are new they have an opening special of free delivery at the moment.

Of course when there are littlies in the house we want to keep them safe. They can get themselves into trouble very quickly. Sometimes it just isn’t possible to watch them every second of the day. There are lots of safety things for the precious little people in our lives. One of the most well known brands for all things related to safety for bubs is Safety 1st.

I think most people with children have used a Safety First product at some stage. They make all sorts of car seats and anchor kits, plug covers, latches, bed rails, bath seats. So many other things. They really are the best at what they do.

Some products that I didn’t realise they made, but look really interesting are:

Welcome Baby Nursery Kit; Health Care Kit;
Front Loader Washer/Dryer Lock; Jumbo Edge Protectors

If you are looking for some discounted baby products at an online store, but still would like to have the high end, quality brands like Maxi-Cosi, Safety First, Mother’s Choice etc., then take a look at Baby Value Factory Outlet. Or go to Safety 1st if you would like to see what a huge range they have available.


Take care everyone and stay safe.

Surge Protection For Your Valuable Electrical Equipment - Crest Giveaway


Brisbane is known for its bright sunny days. It is also known for its quite fierce summer thunderstorms. The humidity builds up all day. It gets steamier and warmer. At about 2.30pm if you are lucky, the clouds roll in, thick and black, and you are treated to a Queensland thunderstorm in all its glory. The lightning flashes and the thunder booms and then the drenching rain comes and soaks the hot ground. Usually right at school pick up time! It gives some relief to the heat for a brief while. If I think of a smell that is distinctly Brisbane, it is that smell. Rain on hot sun-baked roads. Sort of a hot, damp, dusty smell.




I do love a good storm.

But our house seems to have very finicky electrical system. We suffer numerous brown outs and the safety switch in the power box clicks off at the drop of a hat. Very frustrating! But apart from the irritating factor it is not at all good for our electrical goods. The television, fridge, stereo system, air conditioner, computers, and other expensive things have all suffered at the hands of this house. It doesn’t have to be a direct lightning hit to cause damage either. We live near the train line and sometimes an electric train flying past can affect our electricity!

Something that I wish we had realised a lot earlier, is the fact that a good quality surge protection device is an absolute essential item to have, when there are power fluctuations and electricity spikes and storms and trains that do funny things to your power supply.

Did you know that nearly all home and contents insurance policies don’t cover damage caused by a power fluctuation unless you can prove that lightning was the sole cause of the damage? This means that you can be left out of pocket when you need to replace your damaged appliances. Not good.

Crest power management range offers you quality surge protection for your valuable electrical things. It provides round the clock protection for the things that you tend to leave switched on like the fridge and the television. It react super-fast and has indicator lights that let you know when they are not working as they should be. Crest also provides a Connected Equipment Warranty for extra peace of mind.

Now almost all of our electrical items have a surge protection plug, and it does provide peace of mind to know that you can prevent unpredictable damage being done by power spikes and surges.

Crest is available at Target, Big W, Woolworths, The Good Guys, Bing Lee and major independent electrical specialists like Betta Electrical. 

Now, with thanks to Crest, I have the chance to get someone else storm ready!




I have a product pack to giveaway!  This includes 1 x single, 1 x double and 1 x 4 socket surge board with antenna protection per kit.

This competition will run from now until 18 December, 2013 at 12am, so get your entry in nice and quickly.

Open to Australian residents only. One entry per person and judges decision is final.

Just enter via the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win.



All the best!
