Nods 'n' Ends from the Land Of Nod


Whimsical children's' retailer Land Of Nod is holding its Spring Cleaning Sale, with up to 80% discounts on kids' bedding, furniture, decor, toys and more.

It's a great time to stock up on seasonal items: the Ain't No Mountain High Enough toboggan is marked down to $49 from $129. It would look great under next year's Christmas tree.

Easter baskets, winter holiday crafts and Valentines are also on sale. Heads up to those who read my post on Budget Birthday Party Going for Kids: these designer duds piggy banks (phthalate-free) make a novel birthday gift or party favor for children age 3 to ten, especially accompanied by a roll of nickels, dimes or quarters for their opening day deposit!
