New – PuddleDucks Sun and Beach Range

We’re delighted to announce the launch of our new Sun and Beach range – just in time for the lovely Summer we will have this year!

We’ve been working on this new range for quite a while and we now think we have a great mix of top quality products available to buy online … all at a reasonable price. This range complements our popular children’s waterproof range – allowing children to get out and about and enjoy the joys of the great outdoors – whatever the weather and whatever the time of year.

The range includes children’s wetsuits – both full length and short length, UV suits, UV tops, UV hatssun hats and aqua shoes.

We hope you like them. To check out the complete range click here

Here’s a few photos of some of the items in the range.

The PuddleDucks Online-Outdoor Family Quiz

We are delighted to bring you the very first ‘The Online-Outdoor Family Quiz by PuddleDucks’.  Think of the quiz as an online treasure hunt that the whole family can take together. It is brought to you in association with five of Irelands’s fantastic family parks: Brigit’s Garden, Fota Wildlife Park, Castlecomer Discovery Park, Greenan Farm and Carlingford Adventure Centre. We have 15 super prizes of Family Tickets for the lucky winners.

Just take the quiz with your kids and find the answers online on the website of the five participating centres.

This quiz is part of the Irish Internet Association’s Digitise the Nation event which is all about encouraging people to use the internet in more creative ways.  We hope that with our quiz children can be introduced to the internet in a fun but safe and supervised way.  We also hope that you might learn more about some of the wonderful outdoor attractions available to us in Ireland. 

A huge thanks to the five outdoor centres that have kindly donated prizes for the quiz.

How to Enter:

There are 15 easy questions in the quiz – 3 questions for each of the five websites.
