I think I may be turning into my mother…
Mum gets into a bit of an excited frenzy when she spots a good bargain. Perhaps it’s all part of becoming a mum, but I also got very excited this month when I discovered that Argos sell their own range of Mamas & Papas nursery furniture – at almost half the price of those in the Mamas & Papas stores.
I’dhad my eye on a Mamas & Papas nursery furniture range for some time, which cost from £449 – £1957. So was made up when I found a similar set online at Argos for £329.99, with a further discount at the time which made it £249.99. The set was the Mamas & Papas Teo 3-piece range including cot, dresser/changer and wardrobe.
I was skeptical about the quality given the difference in price, but once it arrived (and 4 hours of flat pack hell later) we were more than satisfied with our choice and I felt pretty smug with my bargain. Granted, these sets aren’t identical to those in Mamas & Papas, but aside from a few small finishing touches, I can’t see a huge difference in the quality.
One of the main differences is that the Mamas & Papas dressers have draws which are probably more practical than the shelf/door combination on this one, but for the price I think this is a brilliant buy.
The cot is perfect and I love having a wardrobe to hang up all of those mini baby grows in. I look at them every day and can’t believe that soon we’ll have a little human being wearing them!
Now we just need to add some soft furnishings and accessories to make it cosy and finish it off. I’m also going to source some cute artwork, probably from notonthehighstreet.com. I hope she likes it as much as me.
