Aldi’s baby and toddler event is back and prices start from £1.99
ALDI has launched a fresh event with bargain baby and toddler items, ranging from cots to books.
Prices start at just £1.99 for the Aldi Specialbuys and are coming to stores this week.
Eager shoppers can get ahead of the crowds though and pre-order online from today (Sunday February 14).
The supermarket's latest baby event includes dummies starting from £1.99 and books on being mindful and brave for the same price.
There is also furniture from Aldi's Mamia range.
Prices range from £99.99 for a baby changing unit, to a bundle including the unit, a cot and wardrobe for £349.97.
The deals follow Aldi's first baby and toddler event of the year, last month.
Some items – 12 in total – which had been due to go on sale in January have been delayed because of Covid.
The products were advertised for sale on 14 January but are now not expected until mid-February.
Aldi has apologised to customers.
In the latest event all the items are on sale as expected and have not been hit by similar delays.

You can find your nearest Aldi by using its store locator tool.
Before parting ways with any cash, you'll want to compare prices to make sure you can’t find something cheaper elsewhere.
Baby high chair – £12.99
For parents-to-be, a baby high chair is an essential purchase – and this one only costs £12.99 from Aldi.
It comes complete with a food tray and can be used in two positions.
The cheapest from rival Argos costs £17.50 with free click and collect.
Snuggle nest – £29.99
A warm and cosy sleeping space for smaller babies, snuggle nests help provide comfort while parents are nearby.
Choose from colours including brilliant white, soft grey or a hint of mint.
However, if you miss out on this one from Aldi then you can buy a similar snuggle nest for £27.95 plus £2.95 from Online4Baby.com.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Nursery wardrobe – £119.99
Keep your baby clothes tidy and put away thanks to this sweet wardrobe.
According to Aldi, it has plenty of hanging and drawer space for little clothing.
We couldn't find a cheaper baby wardrobe, with Wayfair charging £127.99 with free delivery for its simplest design.
Behaviour books – £1.99 each
These books are designed to help young children understand feelings.
There are four of them tiled Mindful, Brave, Kind and Grateful.
We found this similar set of 14 books helping kids aged 5-7 understand behaviours from Books2Door.
They are £25.99 for the set which works out as £1.86 each.
Boots has launched a sale with up to 70% off Mothercare baby clothing.
One bargain hunter bagged 20 hair products from 20p each as part of a mega clearance at her local Boots store.
The Entertainer recently also added more items to its sale, offering discounts of up to 75%.
