Free LEGO Mini Model Event

LEGO Building Event: Space Ship Blast Off

Registration is now open for the next free LEGO Make and Take event! During June, kids get to build a free spaceship to launch in to space and then take home.

This continues the new format where LEGO Stores offered their free events on multiple days! These monthly mini build events are open to children ages 6-14 only and slots are limited, so you have to reserve a space before they run out.

Now for the bad news. For some weird reason, LEGO recently changed how registration for these events work. You no longer can register online, but must register in-store first. Kinda crazy if you ask me! Hopefully they revert this policy ASAP because how many of us have time for in-store registration? Each store has approximately 120 free LEGO kits per night and time reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.

I see no mention of registration for June, so perhaps they killed this draconian in-store registration plan from May? Either way, I'd call ahead and ask!

Also, I've noticed a few super cheap items lately in LEGO's sale and discount section. If you have a little one with an upcoming birthday who loves LEGOs, it might be worth scoping out.

PETA Kids Freebies

PETA Kids Freebies

PETA Kids had a collection of freebies that I've written about over the years. However, to make things easier, I've consolidated all of their freebies into this post. I'll keep this updated and current as new PETA samples are released.

I first published these free stickers in 2009 and when they arrived, my little sister stuck them all over our family house. A few of them are even still there today! Every time I go home, I'm reminded of how cute animals are. It makes it really hard to eat meat when you're constantly being reminded of where it comes from. I enjoy my ignorance and would appreciate it if I could continue believing in the Meat Fairy, which is where all delicious meat obviously comes from.

Right now, you can request the following freebies:

You may have to copy & paste the links in order to go straight to the signup form.

I wonder what the guide to helping animals will say. My guess is 1) Don't eat meat. 2) Stop dressing your pets in creepy sweaters.

[thanks to Hiffer Jessica for reminding me about these!]


Free Headlines that Changed History Poster

Free Headlines That Changed History Poster

Ohhh, I wonder what free “Headlines that Changed History” poster I'll recieve. I've got my eyes set on my birth announcement! At the time, it wasn't so much a headline as a page D17 blurb. But after the illustrious life and career I've managed, I'm all by certain my family's local paper has gone back and edited their archive.

The site says all you need is a valid email and address, so I entered “None” for what school I attend.


Free Target Baby Kit

Free Target Baby Welcome Kit πŸŽ―πŸ‘Ά

If you're expecting a little bundle of sleepless nights, then spend a few minutes making a baby registry on Target.com and you'll get a free baby welcome kit valued at over $80!

After taking just a few minutes to create your registry, stop by your local Target to pick up your free baby welcome gift at Gust Services.

It's well worth it, as many of the samples are full sized along with tons of coupons! Make sure to bring photo ID or a crying baby to pick it up.

If a Hiffer takes advantage of this any time soon, please contact me!


Kids Eat Free at IHOP

Kids Eat Free at IHOP

Now through September 25, 2016, kids eat free at IHOP with the purchase of each adult entree from 4-10pm at participating locations. However the geniuses behind what I have to assume is at least a million dollar campaign forgot one key detail during all their meetings. I couldn't find a list of participating locations on their site.

That being said, you'll probably want to call your nearest IHOP before heading off with the little ones in toe.


Free GoodNites Sleep Underwear

Free Pull-Ups

Costco is offering free Pull-Ups training pants and the best part is the signup form doesn't require a Costco Member ID. Maybe they finally realized that doing so was futile as we all knew to punch in 9 random numbers. I just wish that little trick would work on other things like ATMs, phones, and girlfriends.

Wait, that makes it sound like I date robots. No, no, don't worry. I only go for cyborgs.


Free Lowe’s & Toys R Us Events on 04/17

I guess these free Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic are every weekend now, because tomorrow from 10-11am they'll be building a free flower planter. After your finished playing Bob The Builder, head over to Toys R Us from 11am 1-pm for a free Thomas the Tank Engine event.

Okay, I had to put my cat down this morning, so I'm not feeling the funny today. She was a fantastic, old kitty who loved sunning all morning, sleeping on our chests at night, and slyly letting the dogs get close enough to almost sniff her butt before smacking their heads at any hour of the day. In other words, she spent 19 years rockin' out. She'll be dearly missed in the Goob household, but damn, you could not have asked for a better cat.


Free Coloring Pages

I'm gonna be honest, I thought this was some sort of elaborate spam at first glance. But in fact it's a search engine for free coloring pages and from what I can tell, it's legit. Let's say you your kid has their entire room decked out in unicorn posters. Well, just go to the site, search for “unicorns” and a few pages worth of results will pop up. Then print out a few and viola! You She can draw all night long.

Obviously, you'll need a printer and some black ink to print these out. But face it, what's more valuable: a few bucks worth of ink or potential hours of peace and quiet? Exactly, that's what I thought.


Free Baby Mozart Music

Reader Kinkan sent in this great freebie where you can download all sorts of free Baby Mozart music! My two youngest siblings had these and they used to do wonders for putting them to sleep quickly and keeping them asleep! In fact, I guess actually this could be listened to by anybody, as I myself enjoyed listening to the music while I rocked my siblings to sleep. In fact, I even have the songs on my iPod πŸ™‚
