Bargain Hunter: The Easter holidays offer some sweet surprises from Playmobil

 

It's the Easter holidays so the toy company Playmobil has launched four new gift eggs and its first ever Playmobil Easter calendar.

The bargain element? Spend £30 at the company's online store and you'll get an Easter Gift Egg worth £5.99.

The eggs contain a new character along with accessories. Meanwhile the Easter calendar – at £9.99 – has 10 doors with a toy behind each one, including exclusive new rabbit characters.

To order online go to www.playmobil.co.uk

Book for the Muppets film to bag a Disney voucher

One of Easter's big films aimed at kids is Muppets Most Wanted and for every ticket for the film you buy at a Vue cinema by 6 April you'll get a free £5 Disney Store voucher.

To claim, visit Vue's box office and receive the voucher with your tickets. The Disney Store voucher must be redeemed by 12 April.

Buy a Blinkbox card and enjoy a Quality Street egg

If you want to keep kids entertained while at home, Tesco-owned Blinkbox has a deal running until 8 April which can give customers a Quality Street Easter egg.

To qualify you'll need to head down to your local Tesco and buy a Blinkbox Movie & TV card. Then use the card on Blinkbox – online or through your TV – to get the Quality Street Easter egg coupon. Then, from 11 April, Blinkbox will turn £5-worth of Tesco Clubcard vouchers into £10 worth of Blinkbox credit. Full details at www.tesco.com/clubcard/deals/
